Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Buddhism.

Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!”

“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you acceptance of anything unless you first empty your cup?”

Peace and Love, Jim
