New Interest



x: so what’s first?


y: when you wake, you want to meditate.
20 minutes.
but I pray, because I don’t know how.


x: what?
to meditate?


y: ah-huh.


x: well that’s easy.


y: really?


x: sure. you just sit there.


(pause)


y: and.. that's it?


x: yup.
sit still and think up stuff.


y: well what’s so hard about that?


x: sitting still, especially with the coffee i have soon as i sit up from bed.
first sip, i pop like a pill on easter morning.


y: dear.


x: but don’t keep me waiting – what else you got for us?


y: well...
after you meditate, or pray.. from there, you become immersed in all the nowness, about you.


x: h’m. what else?


y: judge not. nobody. i’ll tell you — this one was especially hard for me.


x: how come?


y: everywhere i go, it happens so naturally: i judge.
but now that i’ve noticed, a general change has come over my behavior.


x: good for you. keep it up.


y: i walk in nature — everyday — that’s the next thing you want to remember.
and to notice the greatness in every being, every time you interact.


x: that one, i’m actually going to try. keep going.


y: there was one more thing.. shoot. what was it?


x: be friendly?


y: no. it was.. o shoot.


x: come on.


y: o!
each time you interact, give something to someone.
a gift.


x: h’m.
not sure i like that one..
only thing i’ve usually with me is money, and never more than a couple singles.


y: joy might be a better thing to give.


x: how can someone give joy?


y: that’s easy. for instance, you could wish someone to have a special night.


y: a special night?


x: yes. for instance, i wish you a special night.


y: h’m.


x: .. however that means to you.


y: i’ll be honest – was a nice try, but i’ve had a pretty rough day.


(y reaches into wallet)


y: in any case, you made it count.
here.
have a dollar.
