The Missing Axe

A man whose axe was missing suspected his neighbor's son.

This boy walked like a thief, looked like a thief, and spoke like a thief.

But the man found his axe while he was digging in the valley,

and the next time he saw his neighbor's son, the boy walked, looked, and spoke like any child.

Lieh Tzu


Our perception of people comes from our past experiences and encounters. This is our cultural lens. Only by knowing what has influenced us can we begin to change our perception. Perception is one of the most difficult things to change about ourselves.

This book is full of countless gems that will make you think... a long long time!
