Parable of the three trailer homes

There once were three trailer homes. One trailer home was crammed full with stuff – to the ceiling – but had open windows. The second trailer home had an extremely nice interior but the windows were closed. The third trailer home was empty with the windows open. One summer day, it was record hot and all three trailer homes were sweltering. A cool breeze blew across the land, but the first trailer home was so densely crowded with stuff that very little breeze could go through. The second trailer home, while looking very nice, did not receive any of the cool breeze because of its closed windows. The third trailer home – which was open and empty – received the breeze and was penetrated by it, as the wind blew freely within.
