Your Thoughts, Please

September 15, 2009 · 10 comments

My zen-a-day calendar has been a bit list-happy for the past few days.  Yesterday’s quote (which is today’s quote for me, because you’re now reading something that was written in the past (yay time capsules)) was, I thought (try to follow me, here dear reader, without criticizing my tense-usage), pretty darned apropos and pragmatically…well…Zen:

  1. Get enough food to eat, and eat it.
  2. Find a place to sleep where it is quiet, sleep there.
  3. Reduce intellectual and emotional noise until you arrive at the silence of yourself, and listen to it.

Yes, #4 is blank on my page at home as well.  I’m curious to hear your thoughts on #4.  And so glad to have a comments section.  Please, dear reader, let me know what you think.

Find a cat in a shelter who is not a pet, and pet it.

4. Find yourself a piece of ass, and fuck it.

Buy tickets to see Stratovarius and go to the concert.

4. The cost of finding Zen, priceless.

Leave it blank. Endless possiablities and options.
Let your mood decide what #4 will fit into your zen quest.

Dream a little then dream a big dream that never ends. Having a vision that you get lost in would complete the list…though I love Being Samantha’s answer.
