Zen and the Art of Personal Maintenance – 10 Meditations

1.  If all the world’s a stage,

     be the one hand clapping.

2.  Like baubles across a bassinet

     the past invites endless play.

3.  Your future is in the distance

     between this breath and the next.

4.  Every day is your birth-day;

     give yourself a present.

5.  Never let your right lover

     be your left lover

6.  Avoid keeping secrets;

     they breed like lies.

7.  If you’re a paranoid bee

     don’t make honey.

8.  Collect labels and wear them all;

     they’re your medals from the war of independence

9.  The dark is afraid of you;

     a torch-bearer needs no sword.

10. Death is a hard act to follow;

      save it until last.
