Thinking Too Much

SCRiPTURE FROM THE NOTHiNGNESS

The Reading: "The truth knocks on the door and you say, "Go away, I'm looking for the truth," and so it goes away. Puzzling." - Robert M. Pirsig

The Homily: A young woman once met Shinto priest Hideo Isomoto. They talked for a moment or two when he unexpectedly gave her some modest advice, "You need to stop thinking so much." She looked at him quizzically, turned and quietly walked away... thinking about what he had just said.
