itself. My grandfather was lame. Once they asked him to
tell a story about his teacher. And he related how his
teacher used to hop and dance while he prayed. My
grandfather rose as he spoke, and he was so swept away by
his story that he began to hop and dance to show how the
master had done. From that hour, he was cured of his
lameness. That’s how to tell a story.

The arts are not a way to make a living.
They are a very human way of making
life more bearable. Practicing an art, no
matter how well or badly, is a way to
make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.
Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio.
Tell stories. …

Possessions, like happiness, are always eluding our grasp. Instead of constantly wanting to have, wouldn’t it be better simply to be to watch and let the natural environment exist in peace? A world whose true joys and riches, continually renewed and replenished, we have yet to fully appreciate?

Just as one must learn the art of killing in the training for violence,
so one must learn the art of dying in the training for non-violence.
