The Monk felt the Koi’s presence and opened his eyes “Welcome back my friend.”
Koi smiled and said “I have another thought today Monk.”
The Monk waited for Koi to continue.
“Monk, how do I learn to forgive?”
The monk smiled at Koi. “I love your questions Koi” and then closed his eyes in silence for a while. When he opened them he said.
“When you travel light, without judgement and interpretation. And you only carry empathy and self awareness, you wouldn’t ever need to forgive Koi.”
The Koi looked at the monk and his words echoes as she swam away in the crystal clear lake.
