Seeking enlightenment? There is no door. There is no spoon, either. ;)
“Live in the now.” From a favorite book by Eckhart Tolle, Guardians of Being.
"Enlightenment of the wave". From the book, Zen Speaks, Shouts of Nothingness. The book is filled with wonderful cartoons like this.
“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”
~ The Dalai Lama
I don’t know what happened to Freedom of Speech in the U.S., but I like this.
A “mind coin” cartoon, from this Cambridge Zen Center Twitter page.
This Winnie The Pooh caption reminds me of one of those “bad lip reading” videos. :)
An IKEA job interview. (Cartoon by Canary Pete.)
This is a cartoonize’d version of Yoda on Luke Skywalker’s back during Luke’s initial training in the swamp. To create it, I found the original movie image with a Google search, opened the image in Gimp, then worked back and forth with a “Cartoonized” plugin effect, the Beautify options, and the Artistic/Oilify effect. I can do a lot better than this, but for the purposes of this example, I created this cartoon image in less than five minutes. Given more time, I would clean up Yoda quite a bit before using the Cartoonize effect.
I’ve used Gimp to create almost 2,000 images that I use with the Mac screensaver “rotate images” feature, and this is the latest addition.
