The student came to the Master's Tea House and said, "I heard a man tell me 'This sentence is false.' What does this mean?"

Jin Wen Gu once asked the Master, "Why do you drink tea eight times in a day? Is this your secret to enlightenment?"

The Master answered, "Mu. (Nothingness)"

"Mu?"

"Without Tea I am constipated and full."

At that moment Jin Wen Gu became enlightened.

The student dropped the tea pot and it shattered.

Woe is me, said the student, for I will not have tea.

You have tea, now drink it, said the Master.

The student sits at the feet of the Master, awaiting wisdom.

When no wisdom is bestowed, the student asks the Master, "What must I cease to attain enlightenment?"

Master, I ask for guidance. I have given away all of my earthly possessions and dedicated my life to one of wandering. However, I feel strangely fulfilled inside. How do I empty my soul of this warmth?
"I assure you -- I will be quite content to be a mere mortal again, dedicated to my own amusements."

 :tai:  :tai:  :tai:  :tai:

Wu is nothingness, emptiness, non-existence

Thirty spokes of a wheel all join at a common hub,
     yet, only the hole at the center allows the wheel to spin.

Clay is molded to form a cup,
     yet, only the space within allows the cup to hold water.

Walls are joined to make a room,
     yet, only by cutting out a door and a window can one enter the room and live there.

Thus, when a thing has existence alone, it is mere dead-weight.

Only when it has Wu, does it have life.
