Default Went To The Mountain Top


Went to the mountaintop

And found the Guru

Asked, “What is life?”

“The meaning?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said.

“Go back to the bottom,” the Guru said.

“Of the mountain?” I asked.

“Yes,” he said.

I went to the bottom. Of the mountain. Felt my question was

still unanswered. Went back to the mountaintop. The guru was drinking


“Trying to stay awake?” I asked.

“No,” he said. “I am awake. Just felt like a cup of coffee.”

Was going to touch him to see if he felt like liquid coffee or ground. But asked, “What is the meaning of life? I went to the bottom as you said. I went to the mountaintop before that. Now I am at the mountain top again. I still don’t know. The meaning of life?”

The Guru said, “Go back to the bottom.”

He didn’t look all that awake. Thought there was more than coffee in his coffee.

“Bin there done that,” I said.

“True,” he said. “Go back to the bottom anyway. Or go around the mountain for all I care.”

What,” I said, wanting a cup of coffee, feeling unenlightened unawake in deep sleep and lost.

Then the Guru smiled warmly, giggling and jiggling all over.

The Guru said, “It is all in the journey.”
