A Zen Story: Moving City

July 22, 2020

 

Two people visit a Zen Master (thank goodness there's always one around when you need advice).

 

The person man asks: “I’m thinking of moving to this city. What’s it like?”

 

The Master asks: “What's it like in your current city?”

 

The person replies: “Oh it's the worst, I don't like it there and everyone is horrible.”

 

The Master says: “Ah ok, you'll find this city is very much the same. I don’t think you should move here.”

 

The first person leaves and the second person comes in.

 

The second person says: “I’m thinking of moving to this city. I just wanted to know what it's like?”

 

The Master asks: “What's it like in your current city?

 

 

The second person responds: “Oh it's wonderful. Everyone is friendly and I'm really happy. Just interested in a change now.”

 

The Master says: “This city is very much the same. I think you will like it here.”

 

The lesson here? What we seek is what we find.
