Ah, great joke, AikiTom! (though I've heard it before), still a great joke.

A Zen Story:

The Zen master is hungry and finds a hot dog cart passing by.
So the Zen master steps up to the hot dog cart and says:
"Make me one with everything."

The hot dog vendor fixes a hot dog and hands it to the Zen master, who
pays with a $20 bill.

The hot dog vendor puts the bill in the cash drawer and closes the drawer.

"Where's my change?" asks the Zen master.

And the hot dog vendor responds:
"Change must come from within."

Now guys, I'm not yet real familiar with all the Japanese terms of Aikido, But I want to know why I haven't heard any of you say something about Za-zen..??
If anything in Japan is meditation,
THAT is meditation.
Comments, please?
