    Know this tale, love this tale! I hope it can remind people (including me!) to examine, & release, the psychological/ physical “baggage” we carry around, to our detriment! ….. also, great graphics, love the bamboo & trees! Tally Ho, Gavin!! :-D

    Never let your sense of morals keep you from doing what you know is right.

    This tends to happen when the vagueness of a spiritual lesson overrides the practical truth.

    Reminds me of a Moses Maimonides commentary on the Talmud. You may not cook on the Sabbath, but if a hungry stranger comes to your door and needs food, you cook for him! Religious dogma must not take precedence over human kindness. Really fine art, Gavin!

    Ancient beautiful tale — I first read it in a book by Thích Nhất Hạnh.

    It’s a perfect zen parable. Sorry to say I don’t always follow the lesson myself.
