Went To The Mountain Top
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.”
