The old monk asked the young monk, “What would you do if you found yourself where going one step forward or one step backward means that you will die?”

The young monk said without hesitation, “I’ll go to the side.”

Enlightenment:
Heaven will always leave a door open. When you encounter a dilemma in your life, think from a different angle. You will find out that there are many roads that cross.

 

Chinese version-

老和尚問小和尚:“如果你前進一步是死,後退一步則亡,你該怎麼辦?”
小和尚毫不猶豫地說:“我往旁邊去”。

感悟:
天無絕人之路,人生路上遭遇進退兩難的境況時,換個角度思考,也許就會明白:路的旁邊還是路。
