the # of Buddhist monks it takes to screw in a lightbulb

It just dawned on me on the drive to work that maybe I was wrong about why the cloud of misery departed from my meaningless little life.

According to the Zens, understanding that life is suffering is the path to enlightment.

If you buy that, then relief didn't come from the act of looking for it (relief, that is) but from the act of completely giving up hope that it would ever come.

In other words, I've already reached Nirvana.


Enlightment rocks.
