“How is it that many people react with anger and resistance to the message of sages?” a visitor asked.
“When you’re in deep sleep and someone attempts to wake you up, you’re quite likely to be rather annoyed,” the sage answered.
“Many people, after years of contact with you, still seem to have such difficulty understanding you,” he said.
“When people’s comfort and security depend on not understanding, they won’t,” the sage explained.
