modern day zen habits

Over the years, Zen people have developed a deep understanding of human qualities. They meditate along the paths of Buddhism, but sometimes take a side trip. Here are some findings for the trip, and yes, they are for the lighter side of life; via:

  • Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.  Do not walk beside me, either; just #$!@! off and leave me alone.
  • It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbour's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
  • Don't be irreplaceable; if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
  • No one is listening until you make a mistake.
  • Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
  • Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
  • It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.
  • If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
  • Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
  • If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
  • Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.
  • If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
  • The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.
