2 Monks walk into a Bar


Two Monks walk into a bar and sit down to order sake ( they are Japanese Zen Buddhist monks who have been known to have a sip now and then).

The 1st monk turns to the other and asks ‘so why do you meditate?’

The 2nd one looks at him and replies ‘to get into the present moment’

The 1st monk then laughs and says ‘where else can you be?’

Now think to yourself….

Can you ever really be anywhere but right here right now? Is the present moment something we get into or is it an ever present experience we acknowledge.
