Deep Thoughts

Pants

"A story about a Taoist hermit in the mountains conveys the truth of
our oneness with divine humor. A formal delegation from the Confucian
temple below decided to visit and seek his advice. When they arrived at
his hut unannounced, they were scandalized to find him completely
naked. "What are you doing meditating in your hut with no pants on?"
they demanded. "The whole world is my hut," he replied. "This small
room is my pants. What I want to know is, what are you doing in my
pants?"

– Jack Kornfield
