Back at last!: Jewish zen?

Here are some "Jewish Zen" koan, or at least so someone who should know assures me that they are:



If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?
_____

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?
_____

Wherever you go, there you are.
Your luggage is another story.
_____

Accept misfortune as a blessing.
Do not wish for perfect health
Or a life without problems.
What would you talk about?


I like them. If you don't, don't write to complain. More rational and boring stuff will be posted tomorrow. I thought I should post something today, so you know I haven't vanished, just been busy fixing various things.

Toronto-based Canadian journalist Denyse O'Leary (www.designorchance.com) is the author of the multiple award-winning By Design or by Chance? (Augsburg Fortress 2004), anoverview of the intelligent design controversy, and of Faith@Science. She was named CBA Canada's Recommended Author of the Year in 2005 and is co-author, with Montreal neuroscientist Mario Beauregard, of the forthcoming The Spiritual Brain: A neuroscientist's case for the existence of the soul (Harper 2007).

My other blog is the Post-Darwinist, detailing events of interest in the intelligent design controversy.
