how the children exceed their parents

This morning Iris uber Alles breezily shared with me, "At my school yesterday, we learned meditation, and the leader said I reached enlightenment!" I asked who this "leader" was, and it turned out to be a fifth grade teacher who deemed Iris enlightened. Seeking to share this new interest, I mentioned that once, thanks to my dear old friend Kate, I meditated with the Dalai Lama. "But YOU didn't reach enlightenment!" Iris jeered.

Tell Iris to always end that story with "So I got THAT going for me"
WV "mipaymo"

Would you mind sharing that story sometime? I'd probably cry if I ever met him. Not because of his status, he's just such a beautiful person.

As an Atheist/Buddhist I'd be annoyed if someone told my kid they'd actually reached enlightenment by meditating for a little while. LOL
