Voodoo Doll Zen


Irritation, like love, is part of of the human experience.

Zen Master:  How are you today?

Student:  I’m irritated.

Zen Master:  Good.

Student:  Zen Master, I’ve been practicing loving kindness meditation every day but I’m still so irritated by that person. Am I doing something wrong?

Zen Master:  Well, if that loving kindness bullshit doesn’t work, then get a voodoo doll.  Beanie babies work well for that.

Student:  (hysterical laughter)  That’s awesome.

Zen Master:  If you’re irritated, be irritated.
