"Why do you waste your time with all this: work, wife, kids? You should be busy walking to enlightenment?"
"I am", replied the father while helping his little daughter put on the shoes.

the master

After traveling the world and learning everything he could learn, he heard of a new master.

He went to visit him.

"Master, I learned so many things and know almost everything that can be known. What it is I am missing?"

With a quick turn, the master slapped him almost knocking him down.

With great shock, he looked at the master who was smiling.

He touched the master's feet and got his enlightenment.

The chick just hatched from the egg. Looking around to his brothers and sisters and to the other eggs he said:

"I am not like you, I don't need anybody to teach me how to fly." And he jumped out of the nest.
