Haha, yes but very funny BS, and actually I like it, it smashes the "spiritual ego" on floor and flushes it down for the good.

Anyhow, here is a funny thing that happened (partially made up by me ;) )

---

Me trying to enlighten a friend:

Me: You know buddy, you are not the body.

He: Ya I know, I'm not this mess, I wouldn't be that way if I were it.

Me: No no, I mean, body is not your essence, you are more.

He: Ya I know that too.

Me: So tell me who are you?

He: I'm the brain !

Me: No, that's just a part of the body. Tell me who you are.

He: Ok I get it, I'm brain, so brain is not body. Thx.

Me: Nooo...

He: ?

Me (throwing my advaita card): Tell me who knows the brain, who is aware of the brain?

He: Well I know everything via brain, so brain knows everything.

Me: But can it know you?

He: Ya I know me.

Me (getting nervous): Brains are not aware, they dont know.

He: How can brain not know its not aware?

Me: (Slaps forehead)

He: Whats wrong with you? Smoking stuff???

Me: No I just realized I'm not the brain, I'm trying to teach you that.

He: Your brain is telling you you are not the brain? Are you crazy buddy? Its playing a crazy game, stop there now..

Me: Tell me who is aware of the brain, if you are brain?

He: Brain is aware of the brain. Why did you ask?

Me: ??? (walks away)

Lesson: Enlightening yourself is the easiest job in the world :D

A monk walks up to a street-side hot dog cart.

The hot dog cart's vendor asks the monk, "What can I get for you?"

The monk says, "Can you make me one with everything?"

LOL xD

Not a joke but me and my friend used to have this interpretation of how a monk would act.

 

Some guy walks up to an Enlightened monk and punches him in the face. The monk just says "oh it is just sensations in the body'and smiles. The guy starts punching the shit out of him. The monk is just letting him punch him, saying "oh it doesnt matter, it is just feelings inside the body". Then the guy grabs a baseball bat and starts wacking him, Then the monk just sits there smiling and letting him beat the crap out of him.

 

Lol we had very silly assumptions about enlightened people

@kyle barnett Yes, so silly! There're some enlightened folk who indulge in wordly pleasures :P, others choose to starve or burn themselves alive :o. The Absolute doesn't care one way or the other. Enlightened just means disillusioned 9_9.

Know the Truth and live in peace :)

Yeah haha the part we missed is that just because you are enlightened or whatever. You still have things you would choose to do or respond to.
