Is Torgny's cupreally isempty ?



Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"

"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"


you ask the most pertinent questions both verbally and in imagery

These Zen stories are wonderful, appreciated by many for their simpleness.

The cup is new. I bought it the other day. It is a very big cup. In the morning when I wake up there is tea in it, regardless of if I drank it all up the night before or not

Just fun all of it

Does this mean you have fairies at the bottom of your garden?

have you tried reading the tea leaves to find out who fills it for you in the morning, if you don't have fairies


" There was no shame in floating a stupid idea, but no umbrage was to be taken if the other person said it was stupid"

the essence of creative thinking and the openness, frankness and boldness that one needs to display to truly boost creative sessions to the next levels. All too often people either sit and hold in their ideas, for fear of sharing them and others not acknowledging their contribution or even simply for the fear that a 'stupid' question or idea would somehow brand them as 'thick' for the rest of their lives.
