It has been a long time since I wrote on this blog. The main reason? Not enough time to do everything that is in my mind. To tell the truth, this is not the only reason. Many troubles happened with those who created with me this blog (and the idea behind it). But this is another story. Anyway, every time I think about the Whynotter project, I can do no less than remember about a little zen story I read in a deeply dark period of my life. I’m really convinced that it must be a sort of mantra for a whynotter.

“If someone approaches you with a gift and you do not accept it, who owns the gift?” Asked the Samurai.

“Who has tried to give it away,” said one of his disciples.

“The same goes for envy, anger and insults,” the teacher said: “When they are not accepted, continue to belong to those who carried them with him.”

Never ever accept bad emotions, like envy or anger, from whoever. If you don’t accept them, they will bounce on you.
