I sat with God under the persimmon tree.

God said, “What’s bothering you this time?”

I said, “It seems to me that the more I learn, the less I know. But, still, I can’t help but want to know more. I desire to overcome this desperate cycle so I can finally find my piece of mind.”

God pulled a persimmon off the tree and gave it to me to eat. I took a bite.

I said that it was delicious, and asked, “Is this a sign that I should just enjoy the obvious sweet fruits of life?”

God said, “I gave it to you to eat so that you’d stop talking.”
