The master asked, “What should I do if someone has to boil water and find that there is not enough wood for the fire to boil all the water?”

Some students answered: “You should hurry and gather, borrow, or buy the wood.”

The teacher said, “Why don’t you pour some of the water out from the pot?”

Enlightenment:

The world is not always as one wishes; sometimes, we need to lose some to gain.

师父问:如果你要烧壶开水,生火到一半时发现柴不够,你该怎么办?有的弟子说赶快去找,有的说去借,有的说去买。

师父说:为什么不把壶里的水倒掉一些呢?

【启示】 世事总不能万般如意,有舍才有得。
