Stories 48: The Meaning Of A Story

A disciple once complained: You tell us stories, but you never reveal their meaning to us.

Said the Master: How would you like it if someone offered you fruit and chewed it up before giving it to you?

No one can find the meaning for you.

Not even the Master.

If you respect your listeners enough to tell the story, respect the enough to let them draw their own conclusions.
