no opinion

If you wish to know the truth,
then hold to no opinions for or against anything.
-- from Hsin Hsin Ming
Verses on the Faith Mind
By Sengtsan, third Chinese patriarch, died 606 AD
Translation by Dr. Richard Clarke

the questioner asks:
"why is this happening?
why isn't something better happening?
why am i stuck with this?
why don't i have something better than this?"

Wayne says: "the answer to why is because."

the questioner yells
"you're talking nonsense!
you're not logical!
you're irrational!
why do people like you
even exist?"

Bob said: "i have no opinion on that"
