A Zen master asked his disciple: "How do you get a duck out of a bottle?" The disciple thought and thought and finally came up with his answer. "You break the bottle." The master frowned. Another monk said, "You shrink the duck." The answers were many, but all were incorrect. After three years of thinking one monk went up to the Master and said, "There, it's out!" This was the correct answer.
The point to this story:
Many of our problems are caused by incorrect views. A change of perspective is often all that is required.
