THE SPIRITUAL MAD
My Ethiopian friend who lives a few blocks from me was begging me to go to a Buddhist temple with him for the last ten years. I always wanted to go, and after I thought about it for the last ten years I went along with him this morning and he was shocked when I called him this morning to tell him so.
We know that you're retarded Mad but why it took you ten years just to go and check out some spiritual joint?
I am at a point of my life where I need some spiritual guidance and the advice I was getting from my Pastor Joe wasn't the highway to heaven. Ten years of the pastor screaming at me didn't enlighten me at all.
I did enjoy my first day at the temple in Silver Spring. Are all Buddhist short? I looked like clown standing among them. I am not going to say much now but it was interesting. I grew up as a Catholic but I lost my interest during my teens after they told me its pretty much a one way ticket to hell if I don't stop jerking off. Getting laid in high school wasn't an easy task so what do you want from me? But I do base my life on always doing the right thing and live life simple and I think I am doing pretty good on that aspect so far.
I have the next three days off and I have five days worth of shit to do. I am going to take out my niece (who is excited for the first day of school tomorrow) to dinner and come back home and call it a day. It was a very productive week.
Don't forget the homeless.
