A random short story for you to ponder.
Ching-yuan Wei-hsin, a Chinese Ch'an master, once said this: Thirty years ago, when having not studied Ch'an, this monk saw mountain was mountains and water was water.
Later, when following the good teacher's guide, this monk could enter the gate of Ch'an, and saw mountain was not mountain and water was not water.
Now, in the realm of joy and peace and tranquility where everything as-it-is, this monk sees mountain is just mountain and water is just water.
