    STORY: EMPTY YOUR CUP

    One day, a scholar visited a Zen master seeking advice. The scholar asked the master: “Please teach me about Zen”. Soon it became very clear that the scholar had his mind completely full and convinced of his own views, opinions and beliefs. He interrupted the master continuously and failed to listen and be attentive to what the master had to say. The master calmly suggested that they should have a cup of tea together. The master poured his guest a cup. To the guest's surprise, the master kept pouring tea until the cup overflowed onto the table. It spilt the liquid even onto the floor and eventually onto the scholar’s jacket. The scholar was astonished and yelled, “Stop! The cup is full already. Can’t you see?”.

    With a smile, the Zen master replied: ‘Empty your cup’, and added that the scholar is just like that cup "full of ideas and convictions" that nothing more can be absorbed, and advised him to come back, with an empty cup.
