A Million Objects

Gyosan asked Isan, "If a million objects come to you, what should you do?" Isan answered, "A green article is not yellow. A long thing is not short. Each object manages its own fate. Why should I interfere with them?" Gyosan bowed in homage.

Gyosan asks a very practical and appropriate question. We live in a complex society, and a million things demand our attention. How can one be serene in such an environment? Isan gives a beautiful and practical answer: meet things as they come, one by one. People habitually worry about many things, but Gyosan takes one thing at a time. He sees clearly, things as they are.
