The Stone Mind 

Hogena Chinese Zen teacherlived alone in a small temple in the country. One day four traveling monks appeared and asked if they might make a fire in his yard to warm themselves. 

While they were building the fireHogen heard them arguing about subjectivity and objectivity. He joined them and said: "There is a big stone. Do you consider it to be inside or outside your mind?" 

One of the monks replied: "From the Buddhist viewpoint everything is an objectification of mindso I would say that the stone is inside my mind." 

Your head must feel very heavy,observed Hogenif you are carrying around a stone like that in your mind.
