After I left the Mystic Monastery High Atop The Misty Mountain I took a low level job in an office building.
The day of my leaving was such a happy day. The Masters and students threw a big party since it was so wonderful that I was now ready to leave. I
don't remember any other going away party so grand. Come to think of it, I don't recall any one else ever leaving the Mystic Monastery High Atop
The Misty Mountain.
Master Bob was assigned to orient me to my new work environment, show me the time clock, the break room, the ropes. I haven't seen the ropes yet, but
I'm very much looking forward to it.
The time clock is amazing! Master Bob showed me how to find my card in the archive shelf, insert it into the slot, then "kachunk!" The calligraphy
is so fast, so crisp, so exactly duplicating the same characters!
Then it was coffee break time. Master Bob told me to go ahead into the break room and pour myself a cup of coffee. He came in a short time later as I
sat on the floor in my accustomed meditative position, holding the mug in both hands.
"What are you chanting?" Master Bob asked.
"Be the coffee," I serenely replied, "What else?".
"No. No. No." The Wise One said, "Be the guy on break, and drink the coffee."
"Thank you Wise Master." I said
"It's Bob. Just Bob. I'm not your master. I just work here."
Master Bob demonstrates such amazing humility!
Some day I will be ready to move on to bigger things. There may be an opening here for some other fortunate student to learn from Wise Master Bob. The
office is called Halfway House. Check frequently for job openings.
