Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.
I still remember once the KING of PUSSY CAT Elvis Presley sang ONE OF HIS MANY FAMOUS SONGS CALLED:- " IT'S NOW OR NEVER! " The title means: treasue the NOW or never...... it is NOW that all we have & even that is ticking away in not time...... 3 Cheers~~~
