I attended a planning meeting this week. The topic for discussion is about faith like fire or flowing water. One person there sounds like he/she is struggling with this — her/his “lazy nature.” Does that constitute fire or water? I think we all have known “faith like fire” Buddhists. All in, really excited, wants to learn everything and then… gone. But does just sticking around constitute “faith like flowing water?”

How do you determine if you have faith like fire or faith like flowing water?
