Assuming Responsibility

 

 


 

 

Once, after a meeting in the Master’s office, a monk stayed behind. The Master, who was there meditating, suddenly reproached the monk.

The monk thought to himself, “I did not make those mistakes. Why am I being reprimanded?” But then, becoming aware of his ego, he turned his thinking around to: “Shifu, I am willing to take responsibility!”

As soon as he had this thought, he saw the glimmer of a smile from the Master.
