On Seeing

River Water to River

Apr 9, 2007

Wisdom Story

The wise sage was getting older and infirm. His disciples pleaded with him not to die. He said, "I must go on, for unless I do you will not see?" They asked, "Teacher, what is it that we do not see that we need to see?" He did not give an answer.

Later, when the sage was in process of dying, he looked at his disciples with a twinkle in his eye. He said, "My friends, while I was with you I was only a man handing out buckets of river water. After I am gone, I hope you will begin to see the river."
