The Power of Words

Spirit Lights The Way

IMGP2584bA meditation master was asked to heal a sick child by saying a few prayers.

A skeptic scoffed at the  idea that words could have such power.

The master replied, “What do you know?  You’re an ignorant fool.”

Enraged, the skeptic shook with anger, “How dare you call me an ignorant fool!”

The master nodded and smiled, “If so few words have the power to anger you, why should they not have the power to heal as well?”

Aah . . . that’s better! 

Paraphrased from The Zen of Eating, p. 113
