BENGALURU: Subjectivity is the essence of mysticism. You will have to start looking inwards: that’s what we call meditation. It is nothing but looking inwards, reaching to the point of your very life source. And once you have touched your very life source, there is no boredom. Your life is a constant celebration.
Otherwise, whether you are man or woman, to be bored is going to be your destiny.
Becky Goldberg was becoming extremely upset and lonely because all her husband, Hymie, did all day and all night was watch television. So she went to the pet shop to find a companion.
“If you are looking for an unusual pet,” said the shop owner, “this cage contains a giant goony bird, whose beak and claws are capable of destroying anything.”
“How horrible,” said Becky. “Not at all,” the man replied. “The goony bird is remarkably well-behaved, completely obedient. He will only destroy something if he is given the command, such as ‘Goony bird, the chair,’ or ‘Goony bird, the table.’ Then he will fly into action.’”
“Could he destroy a TV set?” asked Becky.
“Of course,” said the man. “He will turn it into a pile of scrap in a matter of seconds.”
So Becky bought the goony bird and took him home. Sure enough, Hymie was in front of the TV, so she opened the bird’s cage.
Hymie looked up and said, “What sort of pet did you buy, dear?”
“I bought a goony bird,” said Becky, preparing to give the command. Hymie went back to watching TV and said, “Goony bird, my ass!”
