Calugarul si scorpionul

Posted by Adi pe Noiembrie 30, 2010

A sadhu was meditating by a strongly flowing river when he saw a scorpion struggling against the current, about to drown. Feeling great compassion, the monk picked the creature up. Immediately it stung him, causing the sadhu to drop him into the river. Again, the scorpion began to struggle, again the monk picked him up, and again the scorpion stung. The scene repeated itself several times, until finally the sadhu was able to place the scorpion safely on dry land. A friend of the sadhu happened to be passing through and had witnessed the scene from some distance. Astonished, he came to the monk and asked him to decipher the strange scene he had just seen. The monk smiled shyly and explained: „Everything has its God-given nature. The nature of this river is to move swiftly. The nature of the scorpion is to sting. But the nature of a compassionate man is to be compassionate, even when stung”.

    Wow ! Nu pot scrie nimicuta in engleza !
    Am citit cum te ratoiai la Mihaela si am vrut sa vad ce scrii tu…
    Si eu cred ca crestinismul e asa cum zisesi Totusi crestinismul a creat o baza de cunoastere pentru Dumnezeul abstract.
    Europenii si popoarele mai tinere nu au profunzimea abstractului, nu inteleg un dumnezeu abstract, ei au avut mereu zei si semizei care se plimbau printre oameni facand copii impreuna cu ei.Nu sunt ca orientalii care au inventat cifrele arabe (sau zero indian) si teoria relativitatii.
    Pot intelege dar nu pot inventa….

      Multumesc pt comentariu🙂
      Desigur… insa este o explicatie cam simplista, ca „asa sunt europenii si popoarele mai tinere”… in fond, „asa sunt” nu e o explicatie… ci o descriere🙂
      De ce sunt asa?
      Sunt convins ca nu are rost vreo speculatie bazata pe genetica… in fond, indienii sunt oarecum stramosii europenilor…
      Trebuie cercetat mai adanc… pe de o parte e inclinatia spre materialism, pe de alta este insuficienta pondere pe care a constituit-o o religie „comoda” cum este crestinismul… care, in fond, e tot rodul propensitatii materialiste… cele 2 fenomene merg oarecum mana in mana!
