From the Daily Zen:

You are a seeker.
Delight in the mastery
Of your hands and your feet,
Of your words and your thoughts.
Delight in meditation and in solitude.
Compose yourself, be happy.
You are a seeker.

- Buddha in the Dhammapada

The first thing I thought of was Harry Potter, the youngest seeker in over a hundred years. Actually, I wish I had mastery of words and thoughts.

I love this one!! I'm delighting in my hands and feet. I'm even delighting in my killer hiccups that won't go away. :)

I am a finder.
I delight in my masturbation
With me hand but not my feet,
With Playboy words and thoughts.
I delight in masturbation in solitude
And before composing myself, I'm happy.
I am a finder.

I knew that was comment was coming, Dave. I didn't know that it would be in the form of a clever spoof of the Zen blurb.

Damn! I'm becoming predictable! D'oh!

We really are our own masters I guess. I hate being on my hands and knees for too long though.

Okay! Okay! I've mastered on my hands and knees already! Can we have a new Zen moment now????? :)
