Wisdom From A Laugh 21, 22

  1. 1. Wisdom From A Laugh 21 Taxi Meter A taxi cab was crazily weaving in and out of the traffic. “Just what are you trying to do?” the grumpy miserly passenger shouted at the taxi driver. “I can’t control the car,” the driver said. “Can you use your mobile phone to ask for help?” “You have to pay the charge,” the miser replied. “And for Heaven’s sake, switch off the fare meter.” Reflection Even in dangerous situations, all that a miserly man can think of is his money more than anything else. When greed, attachment and craving are strong in a person, his mind becomes so 'clouded' and deluded that he can say or do really foolish things for which he has to suffer.
  2. 2. Lottery Ticket A lazy superstitious man went out to his garden yard to pray and ask a favor from God. “Oh Heaven God,” he prayed. “I have prayed to you for many years faithfully. I have also offered all kinds of food for you. Oh God! Please let me strike the lottery.” The lazy man waited for a few weeks. Nothing happened. He became disappointed and angry. Out into the garden he went again. He knelt down and shouted, “Oh Heaven God, don’t You think You are being unreasonable. All I ask for is a strike at the lottery.” Suddenly he heard a voice thundering from the sky: “Who’s being unreasonable? You didn’t buy any lottery!” Reflection A superstitious and deluded person lacks clear and reasonable thinking. He can do the most foolish things.
