A Cup of knowledge

Enlightenment = conversations with God

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912),

received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.

Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!”

“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”

ram0ram foot note 

Quest is a root cause of a question  ……

why ( ? ) for everything is a question ……

and

how is the answer for everything  ……  

zen is to convert how into now  ……

and 

to live in wonder  …..

knowing that I do not know ….  

love all.
