Zen instructions for life

In 1964 Yoko Ono wrote Grapefruit- a book of instructions. 


 Make  a wish
Write it down on a piece of paper
Fold it and tie it around a branch of a Wish Tree
Ask your friends to do the same
Keep wishing
Until the branches are covered with wishes


Think that snow is falling. Think that snow is falling
everywhere all the time. When you talk with a person, think
that snow is falling between you and on the person.
Stop conversing when you think the person is covered by snow.

Draw an imaginary map. Put a goal mark on the map where you want to go. Go walking on an actual street according to your map. If there is not street where it should be according to the map, make one by putting the the obstacles aside. When you reach the goal, ask the name of the city and give flowers to the first person you meet. The map must be followed exactly, or the event has to be dropped altogether.
Ask your friends to write maps. Give your friends maps.

My love for Yoko knows no bounds...
