A disciple decided to be more personal and direct.
“Do you believe in life after death?” she asked.
“Strange that you should be so stuck to that topic!” said the Master.
“Why would you think it strange?”
“Here you have this glorious April day in front of you,” said the Master, pointing to the window, “like a child who refuses to eat today because he does not know what tomorrow will bring. You’re starving. Eat your daily bread!”
