Be the Banana

Relax, young apprentice.  Clear your mind of worldly cares.  Listen to the soothing wind chimes as you earth the energy within your body and become one with the environment around you.  Concentrate on the banana.  Feel your life energy reach out to it, lifting it off the ground … yesssss, that’s it … goooood …

Yeah, well, if we don't cover peeling in our next lesson, I want a refund.

  23. Sumorabbit says:

    Is this a banana, which i see before me,
    The stalk toward my hand? Come let me clutch thee:
    I have thee not, yet i see the still.
    Art tho not, fatal vision, sensible
    To feeling, as to sight? or art thou but
    A banana of the mind, a false creation,
    Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?

    Apologies to the bard.

  31. Capt' Tightpants says:

  32. It seems obvious to me that she’s taking the Zen approach to the problem of What To Do If You Are Attacked By A Banana.
