15 Oct 2008  Once upon a time, an army crossing the desert, fell desperately short of water. The General of the army knew that he must do something to help the army find the strength to keep marching or they would perish.  He gathered the army and  shouted out  “Watch now! there is water ahead and a beside it grow  big mei zi trees.  Think now of biting into  the fruit of the mei zi  and march on to water!”  The mouths of the soldiers  watered at the very thought.  This brought relief to their  thirst and the will to go on.  Rejuvenated, the army marched through the desert  to water.
