How Enlightened Are You? A Test

If you can live without caffeine or nicotine

If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains

If you can resist complaining

If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you any time

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment

If you can ignore friends' limited educations and never correct them

If you can treat the rich and poor alike

If you can face the world without lies or 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 have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender, sexual preference, or politics ——

then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog.
