A distraught client goes to see a Therapist saying, Look, Look, look! I've got these bees all over me. They're big and black with yellow waistcoats and they're buzzing and, and, and they're crawling all over me. You must do something, please, please do something! The therapist says... All right, all right, but don't flick them all on to me!

One day a young student at the Buddhist monastery goes to meditate with two monks as part of his education, they go to the opposite side of the lake from the monastery and are about to start their morning meditation when the first monk says, "oh no I forgot my mat", so walks up to the lake and walks calmly across the surface of the water to the monastery and returns with his mat. Suddenly the second monk says "oh no I've forgotten my sun hat" so he runs across the surface of the water to the monastery and returns with a straw hat. The student is astounded by this and at the end of the meditation he tries to walk across the water. He falls straight in and emerges soaking wet, the two monks look on and after watching his failed attempts for a while the first monk says to the second "do you think we should tell him where the stones are!".

Why don't Buddhists vacuum in the corners?
Because they have no attachments!

A peanut stood upon the track,
its heart was all a-flutter.
Along came the five-fifteen,
SQUISH, peanut butter.

A woman went to a Psychiatrist with her troubles. "Doctor, you must help me," she pleaded.
"It's gotten so that every time I meet a nice guy, I end up in bed with him. And then afterward, I feel really guilty and depressed."

"I see," nodded the psychiatrist. "no doubt you want me to strengthen your will power and resolve in this matter?"

"For God's sake, NO!" exclaimed the woman. "I want you to fix it so I won't feel guilty and depressed afterward.

People used to explore the dimensions of reality by taking LSD to make the world look weird. Now the world is weird and they take Prozac to make it look normal.

and soon you are scorned at and cursed!
So stop right today,
