The Road to Enlightenment Revised

Written by Shereen Campbell

Humor is indeed one of the best medicines there are, whenever you are. Pretty much anyone with internet access can easily read a joke or listen to a comedian just to get a good belly laugh in. Despite what's happening in that moment, doesn’t it feel like it's better to find a good laugh to clear your mind and THEN face your troubles, than to tackle whatever you are going through in anger with clouded vision?  I think so.
I am a huge fan of zen jokes.  They satisfy my desire to laugh AND are deep enough to push me to think.  So in case you needed a laugh today, here is one of my favorite inspirational jokes.  Share your thoughts after the jump. 

This is the road to enlightenment, revised...

1. 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 for the path is narrow. In fact just fuck off and leave me alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a flat tyre.

3. The darkest hour is just before dawn. So if you' re going to steal your neighbour' s milk, that' s the time to do it.

4. Sex is like air. It' s not important unless you aren't getting any.

5. Don' t be irreplaceable. If you can' t be replaced, you can' t be promoted.

12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

13. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

14. If you tell the truth, you don' t have to remember anything.

15. Some days you are the bug; some days you are the windscreen.

16. Don' t worry; it only seems kinky the first time.

17. Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

18. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

19. A closed mouth gathers no foot.
