A lil Ch’an: The Moon March 28, 2011

Filed under: A lil Ch'an,Youth Workshop — memeandbojo @ 3:04 am

Meme had just moved into an unfurnished apartment and was on her way home. She lived a very simple life. She noticed as she approached that the door was standing wide open. There was a person inside who was looking around to find something to steal.

Meme looked at him and said, “You must have really needed something to break into my home.” “You should not leave without anything. Please take my clothes as a gift.”

The thief was surprised. He took the clothes and left.

Meme sat naked except for her underwear looking out from the balcony just admiring the moon. “Poor person, ” she thought, “I wish that I could have given him this beautiful moon.”

(If each person could only discover his/her intrinsic nature that shines within us all like the moon, no one would degrade another or degrade himself.)
