So It Goes

I climbed the Brahman mountains in north India for six hours till I reached the mountain top. Exhausted, I walked into the cave of my Guru.

My Guru said, “Yes, Brooks, what is it now?”

I said, “My life was going a particular way that I liked. Now it’s going a way that I don’t like. I’m frustrated and want to give up.”

My Guru was eating from a box of Count Chocula cereal.

My Guru said, “I used to eat eggs benedict every morning for twelve years. But then my doctor said my cholesterol levels were too high. My doctor recommended cereal. I picked this one because the box made me happy.”
