One day when Fa-yen Wen-i (885-958), one of the well known Chinese Ch'an masters, has ascended his seat. From the assembly, a monk came out and asked:
-What is one drop of water from the fount of Tsao-ch'i?
The other night my wife was playing with our puppy (if you can call a 50 lb hyperactive laboratory a puppy). The dog became over aggressive and my wife quickly swatted her on the nose. She was very confused and kept looking up like there was an unseen danger or hurt from above. Her expression was “What the hell was that?” She just could not believe my wife had hit her. If the dog had been Job I believe she would have started a dialogue with God. Thus – religion? MU
Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil."
