A Humorous Approach: How Enlightened Are You?

Divine Openings friend Sherrie Garrison from Canada sent this in and I LOVED it. A laugh releases resistance better than anything!
HOW ENLIGHTENED ARE YOU?
If you can wake up and get going without caffeine,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him or her,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender preference, or politics.
Then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog.
I think I'll go hug Honey, the most enlightened, patient, and loving being I know! She went on a walk with me today, and the look in her eyes since I returned from my trip to Sedona is pure unconditional adoration.
