Jewish Buddhism: The core tenets

From my friend Syndy, the core tenets of Jewish Buddhism (known as JewBu to some):
Take only what is given. Own nothing but your robes and an alms bowl.
Unless, of course, you have the closet space.
Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as the
wooded glen. And sit up straight. You’ll never meet the Buddha with
posture like that.
There is no escaping karma. In a previous life, you never called, you
never wrote, you never visited. And whose fault was that?
Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage is another story.
Be aware of your body. Be aware of your perceptions. Keep in mind
that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.
If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?
Drink tea and nourish life. With the first sip, joy. With the second,
satisfaction. With the third, Danish.
To Find the Buddha, look within. Deep inside you are ten thousand
flowers. Each flower blossoms ten thousand times. Each blossom has
ten thousand petals. You might want to see a specialist.
Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what
do you have? Bupkes.

    You said that the core tenets but i don’t agree about that.
    You mentioned that there is privious life that i never visited. However, in my opinion there is no privious life. After we die, we will go to the heaven or hell depend on what you believe. If there is previous life, how do you know about that?
    Also, you said that to find the budda and control the mind.(i guess)
    you believe that there are two mind which is real mind and physical mind.
    most of people have physical mind, but you want us to keep real mind.
    isn’t it? However, i think there is just one mind in our body, and we don’t have to aware of our body and perception. How about be aware the God and Jesus. if you know what Jesus done for us, you don’t have to be aware of your body separately. you will fee something and your act wil be change.
