Too lazy to be ambitious, I let the world take care of itself…
There was a person who had the goal of being the best human being he could be.
Their first course of action was to make a list of the great human beings that the world has ever seen.
The second course of action was to then see what exactly was it that made these people so great.
The third course was to see if there were any similarities that ran through these people.
This last plan was to be what this person would take and cultivate within themself to be this great human being.
Ten days’ worth of rice in my bag; a bundle of twigs by the fireplace.
Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment?
This enterprise took a shorter time than expected.
A great list of names was made at first, then what made them all great:
...just to name some of the biggest ones.
Next was the third task, but this was straightforward as well, since most of these great human beings had similar things which made them great; hence their greatness.
So after taking stock, this person endeavored to use the knowledge they gained to craft themselves into the greatest human being who ever lived.
Listening to the night rain on my roof, I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out.
They awoke the next morning to realize they had not put the trash out in time for the collectors.
