Seek Understanding Beyond Words

Master Po – Where is evil? In the rat whose nature it is to steal the grain. Or in the cat, whose nature it is to kill the rat?
Caine – The rat steals. Yet, for him, the cat is evil.
Master Po –  And to the cat, the rat.
Caine – Yet, Master, surely one of them is evil.
Master Po – The rat does not steal, the cat does not murder. Rain falls, the stream flows, a hill remains. Each acts according to its nature.
Caine – Then is there no evil for men? Each man tells himself that what he does is good, at least for himself.
Master Po – . . . a man may tell himself many things but is a man’s universe made up only of himself?
