Some are upside-down. Can't be filled with the teachings for this reason.
Some are dirty. Teachings go in, but are corrupted and that's no good.
Some are leaky. Teachings go in one ear and... uh... what were we talking about?
This metaphor covers the same ground as the Zen imperative to "empty your cup." Open your mind and try to receive the teachings in good faith, that's the point.
Very clear - thank you for this. I'm almost certainly the leaky kind.
