The Paddle Boat Ride

I went for a paddle boat ride with Buddha.

Buddha said, “What questions do you have for me today?”

I said that I had none. I was just looking to get on with my life.

Buddha laughed and said, “Life gets on with you.”

I stopped paddling.

Buddha said, “Why have you stopped?”

I said, “Let life paddle the boat.”

Buddha didn’t say anything. We sat there for about a half hour.

Buddha got restless and began frantically paddling the boat.
