MOVING TO A CITY



A man goes to a Zen master and says, “I would like to move to this city. What do you think of the people here?”

And the Zen Master says, “What were the people like in your old city?”

The man says, “They were awful, mean, spiteful.”

The Zen Master says, “They are the same here. You shouldn’t move here.”

 Then another person goes to the Zen master and says, “I’d like to move to your city. What do you think of the people here?”

And the Zen master says, “What were the people like in your old city?”

And the man says, “They were very nice people. Very smart. I enjoyed being around them.”

The Zen master says, “They are the same here. You will enjoy it here.”
