Inspiration stories

“ A student asked master Bankei
“ How can I cure my terrible temper?”
“Show it to me,” demanded Bankei,
“ I can’t just show it to you like that
because it comes on unexpectedly.”
Explained the student.

Bankei replied
“It is not your true nature, then.
If it were it would be with you at all time.”

From: The Wisdom of the Zen Masters

Sas, that's such a comforting and relieving thought...I guess we are all humans with limitations and I like the Zen explanation for our outbursts sometimes :)
