One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.
TOPIC: ITS WISER NOT TO BE FOR EVILS, NOR DIRECTLY AGAINST THEM
Posted on Oct.02.2012 @ 12:49PM EDTbygenericzen its wiser not to be for evils, nor directly
against them, but not aligned with them at all, evil is always aligned
with good, good is always aligned with evil, they need eachother to?
exist, and perpetually feed upon one another, until you realize that
there is no good without evil (or at least bad) and vice? versa, there
cannot be fulfillment... theres a way to actually live that life, the
life of the sage, if it is your true spirit, dont be pulled to either
side, let them fulfill themselves, this is the fullest wisdom, though it
will be called empty foolishness in practice.
