This one is a nice philosophy story from Chinese Buddhism. This simple story about “One Question and Three Answer”.
Once upon a time, a Master stay with his student in the forest.
In the morning they meet person and ask a question: “Master, are GOD is exist?” the Master answer: “Yes, It exist”.
When noon, come a person ask a question: “Master, are GOD is exist?” the Master answer: “No, It not exist”.
In the afternoon, come a person ask a question: “Master, are GOD is exist?” the Master answer: “………..” (silent).
And at night, the student disappointed and complain to the Master, What it is the truth? Are you lying? You are not consistent in your answer.
The Master with answer it calmly: “When the morning, that person in anxiety like a broken kite, need a thing to trust for motivate him. And GOD is good trust. In the noon, that is a fanatic follower, because of his perception he ready to kill others, I say no to broke his attachment and not dangerous other. And in the afternoon, that person is a hermit, already arrived at home still ask where is the home?”
I think this is spiritual intellect, can give different respond with the situation and person. Keep learning and practice found the Architect of life, when you arrived and “HE” can’t build other home for us.
