Monk Transportation


My husband and sons and I had stopped to take in a spectacular sunset and were on our way back to our car when four Buddhist monks dressed in orange robes walked by. When our sons asked about them, I explained, "Their life is a quest for enlightenment."

"I wonder what kind of car they drive," my husband said, and jokingly suggested, "a Ford Focus?"

"Or a Honda Odyssey," I said.

The monks got into a Pathfinder.

A Zen Master Orders a Pizza


The Zen master walks into the pizza shop. "What toppings would you like on your pizza?", the guy behind the counter asks. The Zen Master replies with a blissful, faraway look on his face: "Make me one with everything."

When it's ready the guy hands the box with the pizza to the Zen master, who in turn pays with a $50 bill.  Without giving the Master any change the pizza guy simply puts the $50 bill in the cash register.

"Where's my change?" asks the puzzled Zen master.

The pizza guy thoughtfully strokes his beard, gazes towards the sky, and kindly responds: "Change comes from within."
