Tea with Sifu


The sifu sipped his tea.  His initiate watched the steam curl lazily up from the cup.

“Master?” the initiate asked, humbly.

The sifu set his tea cup down with deliberation.

“There are 3 states in this physical world, not two,” the sifu replied.

“Three?”

He raised his hand.

“We mistake this physical world as a duality. Action-reaction, black-white, good-evil.  These are active things.  They change.  There’s a third state that is missed.  Being.  Being is neutral.  It is the true nature of everything.  Without Being duality could not exist.”

The initiate blinked twice and the Master smiled around his cup.
