35. An old buddhist parable:

A man walking in a forest is suddenly pursued by a growling tiger. He climbs a tree and crawls out on a limb. He looks down and, to his dismay, sees the tiger climbing the tree. He thinks to jump to safety but, even more dismaying, he sees another tiger on the ground below, looking up at him. Stunned, he looks at the limb hes sitting on and sees apples, full, ripe, and delicious-looking. He picks one and eats it.

The End

I love that story. It speaks to me more each day.
