Hi Athlon lost touch with my own thread for a while as I on the road, ah lets see. My standpoint is I am on ATS to share and like it when others have
something beneficial to share.What I share will depend on what is happening in a particular thread, be it one I begun or someone else,s. One thing I
would like to share is this particular view. A man goes to see a master who he had never met before and heard he was enlightened and wise. When he
arrived at the location there was an old man working the land in his vegetable garden. He asks the old man, can he speak with the master in private?
the old man says yes, just go in the room in front of you and the master will be there. When he enters the old man is sitting there smiling, is this
some kind of a joke? he asks. No I am the master you wanted to see. What did you expect to see someone floating in the air with rainbows in every
corner of the room? No, but certainly something more than a mere old man whose hands are filthy and covered in earth. Well that show how little you
know about enlightenment then. The master then says you may leave now.
In other words to me this story says you never know what is behind the human mask. I have learned to just let each person express
themselves or not. To surprise me or not. Either way is fair, but if after sometimes the show repeats itself endlessly I know its time to go.
