We are the grasshopper. What does Master Po do when the grasshopper seeks deeper understanding? He shares stories. First a small fable that may be shared in a single phrase … “If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present. But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future.” Short, true, but challenging to apply in the real world. So as his student asks more in depth questions, Master Po offers a story. A story delivers context, deep meaning and narrative – in a simple package.
