This is the truth about the pick
the toothpick is an uncouth stick.
It is in fact a disquised fork
it picked my tooth with hidden torque.
Here is your dual thrill
my dentist's sending you my bill
from several lists:
9/4/02 "The Birth -- Part 1"
~1:00am The midwife says, "Try and get more sleep." Is
she nuts? We're gonna have a baby tonight! A baby! Do
you hear that, Everybody-in-the-whole-world? We're going
to have a baby!!!
~1:30am I just took a walk down our long, gravel
driveway in order to mark our mailbox so that the little
birthing team could locate us easily. All I could find
to use was a pinwheel I nabbed _________________* from
Ananda's toybox. When I stepped outside in my
nightshirt, the cool air refreshed and devoured me and
when I looked up there were about a zillion stars
smiling down. I told them that the baby was coming
tonight and they said, "We know!"
Hi this is Jim! This morning at 5AM....California time
Zachary made a very easy transition into the world...(a
very smooth and perfect birth for the mom [and the dad]!
;) Kheyala is resting but wanted all of her friends
on-line to know.
from Spiritual Friends list
I always think that to be able to look into the eyes of
one true Master is worth one hundred years studying His
doctrine, His teaching. In Him you have a direct
example of enlightenment, of life, while in others you
have only a shadow, which may help you also, but not
directly. As the Buddha says, "My doctrine is only a
raft helping to bring you over to the other shore, not
ultimate reality; you shouldn't worship it."
Thich Nhat Hahn in 'The Raft is not the Shore'
from Meditation Society of America
Upon meeting a Zen master at a social event, a
psychiatrist decided to ask him a question that had been
on his mind. "Exactly how do you help people?" he
inquired. "I get them to where they can't ask any more
questions," the Master answered.
