A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:
-When it is cold, hen would go up on a tree and duck down to water.
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."
