[IP] so true! so true! :-)

An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other. He says to the waiter, 'Me want coffee.'

The waiter says, 'Sure chief, coming right up.' He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee.

The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of animal to splatter everywhere, then just walks out.

The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand pulling another male buffalo with the other. He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter, 'Me want coffee.'

The waiter says, 'Whoa, Tonto! We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?'

The Indian smiles and proudly says, 'Me training for upper management position: Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day.'"

Fat Steve's Blatherings: Passing Around the Net:


1. Let your mind be as a floating cloud.  Let your stillness be as the wooded glen.  And sit up straight.  You'll never meet the Buddha with such round shoulders.

2. There is no escaping karma.  In a previous life, you never called, you never wrote, you never visited.  And whose fault was that?

3. Wherever you go, there you are.  Your luggage is another story.

4. To practice Zen and the art of Jewish motorcycle maintenance, do the following: get rid of the motorcycle.  What were you thinking?

5. Be aware of your body.  Be aware of your perceptions.  Keep in mind that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.

6. If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

7. Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Forget this and attaining enlightenment will be the least of your problems.

8. The Tao has no expectations.  The Tao demands nothing of others.  The Tao does not speak.  The Tao does not blame.  The Tao does not take sides.  The Tao is not Jewish.

9. Drink tea and nourish life.  With the first sip, joy.  With the second, satisfaction.  With the third, Danish.

10. The Buddha taught that one should practice loving kindness to all sentient beings.  Still, would it kill you to find a nice sentient being who happens to be Jewish?

11. Be patient and achieve all things.  Be impatient and achieve all things faster.

12. To Find the Buddha, look within.  Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers.  Each flower blossoms ten thousand times.  Each blossom has ten thousand petals.  You might want to see a specialist.

13. Be here now.  Be someplace else later.  Is that so complicated?

14. Zen is not easy.  It takes effort to attain nothingness.  And then what do you have?  Bupkes!
