Morning Thought Stirrer.......

"If we observe phenomena closely, it cannot be thought that anything between heaven and earth is really different. If we see differences, it is due to the narrowness of our vision....This is like Mount Fuji's being concealed by a tree thick with branches and leaves, and my not being able to see it. But how can Mount Fuji be concealed by a single tree? It is simply because of the narrowness of my vision and because the tree stands in the way of my vision that Mount Fuji cannot be seen. We go on thinking that the tree is concealing Mount Fuji. Yet it is due to the narrowness of my vision" - Takuan Soho -


My take:


Mount Fuji = The Greatness of our Creator; Truth of the Universe; The True Purpose of Mankind; Wisdom that Could've Saved the Planet; The True means of Peace on Earth and Good Will among men, etc.

The Tree = Politics/Politicians, Material Gain, Money, Denominations, Technology, Selfishness, Corrupt Preachers and Teachers, Ignorance, Laziness, Bias, Traditions laced with evil, Lust, Sloth, Anger, Greed, Gluttony, Pride, Envy (There is a reason they are called "deadly"), etc.

Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.......
