Infinite thoughts

Just a Second
A man was walking through a forest pondering life. He walked, pondered, walked, and pondered. He felt very close to nature and even close to God. He felt so close to God that he felt if he spoke God would listen.
So he asked, "God, are you listening?"
And God replied, "Yes my son, I am here."
The man stopped and pondered some more.
He looked towards the sky and said, "God, what is a million years to you?"
God replied, "Well my son, a second to me is like a million years to you."
So the man continued to walk and to ponder... walk and ponder... Then he looked to the sky again and said, "God, what is a million dollars to you?"
And God replied, "My son, my son...a penny to me is like a million dollars to you. It means almost nothing to me. It does not even have a value it is so little."
The man looked down, pondered a bit and then looked up to the sky and said, "God, can I have a million dollars?"
And God replied, "In a second."

Men are Four
He who knows and knows that he knows,
He is wise - follow him.

He who knows and knows not that he knows,
He is asleep - awaken him.

He who knows not and knows that he knows not,
He is simple - teach him.

He who knows not and knows not that he knows not,
He is a fool - shun him.

Man to God : "O Lord, I want peace".
God to Man : "When you remove yourself of 'I' and the 'want' you will automatically have peace."

When two psychic friends met, one said: "You are fine. How am I ?"

When the Yogi got the pizza, he gave the waiter a $20 bill.
The waiter pocketed the bill.
The Yogi said "Don't I get change?"
The waiter said, "Change must come from within."

"Procrastinate now"
"My Karma ran over my Dogma!!"
"Never drive faster than your angel can fly!!"
"I'd rather be in Samadhi"
"Out of body. Will be back in 15 minutes!"
"Time is the best teacher; unfortunately it kills all its students!"
"Warning: Dates in Calendar are closer than they appear."
"As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools"

I've learned....
That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.
Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.
Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

The Torah says,"Love thy neighbor as thyself."
The Buddha says there is no "self."
