PRACTICAL RELIGION Our worlds major religions seem to have all been started by incredibly great guys who have primarily one name men like Buddha Confucius Mohammed Lao-Tzu its almost two names Jesus I think Christ is more of a title than a last name for him and Zoroaster We seem to like two names so we add Christ or Of Nazareth and The Buddha and Muhammed the Prophet to flesh out their names a little and make them more poetic I have always admired whatever these men said and did their wisdom has always been inspirational to me But I can never shake the scenarios in my mind when I try to picture these great men dealing with some of the totally aggravating things I have to deal with in my daily life I mean anybody can be at peace with the universe on top of a mountain or in a beautiful mosque or religious retreat but the real tests are the tests of daily life For example what would Mohammed the Prophet do if he was heading for a parking space at K-Mart and somebody with Massachusetts plates cut him off and zoomed in ahead of him Thats easy He would smile and find another parking place Now what if it was pouring down rain in March and the parking space was right next to the store entrance and there were no other spaces for 100 yards Hmmm I guess he would just smile and find another parking place and get wet while still smiling Now what would Jesus of Nazareth do if he came out of Sears after shopping and found that some dingbat had taken a big scrape out of the side of his new car You would at first wonder if he would have a car But you have to have a car in todays society and a carpenter like Jesus would probably have a pickup truck with a tool
