My Favourite Hankerchief
Needed to wipe some food oil from my fingers.My favourite hankerchief is in my pocket...So I didn't feel like dirtying it.I looked for tissue instead.
Then I thought...If I don't use the hankerchief,it would not be a hankerchief anymore-
it would be something useless in my pocket,
being carried around for nothing.So I used it.May we use things as they are meant for.May we be skillful to use things for other good purposes too.
May we remember the function of things,and make peace with it,and be one with it.May we realise the function of our precious human rebirthwould be just to live,just to die,if we do not use this lifeto go beyond life and death.Our lives would be like the hankerchief,not utilising its potential,not doing what it does best.
