The sage and the Christmas inquirer

Amid all the grumblings and murmurings about Christmas in society, a man walked up to a sage and asked: “You regard Christmas only as a Spiritual Festival, but what of those who don’t share the same belief? Where is the inclusiveness?”

The sage paused, reflected calmly, then kindly responded: “Let me answer with the following scenario: Imagine we walk outside to a radiant midday with colorful landscape. Then I turn and ask, ‘You are so fascinated with the bright light from above that illumines everything and vivifies it’s color, but what of those who don’t believe in the Sun? Where is the inclusiveness?'”

The man was dumbfounded, and as he struggled to stammer a response, the sage interjected:

“You need only open your eyes and look, unless the oil in your lamp is exhausted and you are already blind, oh foolish virgin!”
