I am just making.

The following story was recorded in a Japanese teaching:

Once there were three people who took a walk in the country. They happened to see a man standing on a hill. One of them said, “I guess he is standing on the hill to search for lost cattle“. “No“, the second said, “I think he is trying to find a friend who has wandered off somewhere“. Whereas the third said, “No, he is simply enjoying the summer breeze“. As there was no definite conclusion, they went up the hill and asked him. “Are you searching for strayed cattle?” “No“, he replied. “Are you looking for your friend?” “No,” again. “Are you enjoying the cool breeze?” “No“, yet again. “Then why are you standing on the hill?” “I am just standing“, was the answer.

Sometimes I am just making. To make in the moment without the trappings of doctrines.
