Be focused, be flexible

Zen master Chan would tell his students, `When eating breakfast, just eat breakfast…..when reading a newspaper, just read the newspaper.’ The students, eager to hone their concentration, did as they were told. One day, a student, Wushu, saw the master eating breakfast and reading the newspaper as well.

`You do not practice what you preach’, Wushu said to Chan, `you are eating breakfast and reading the newspaper’.

Chan replied, `When eating breakfast, just eat breakfast….when reading a newspaper, just read the newspaper….when eating breakfast and reading the newspaper, just eat breakfast and read the newspaper.’
