In front of me is a master.
I came to see the master in a moment of struggle. In reality, I was at a cross-road. The master can detect my struggles by looking at me in a complete stillness.
The master: “I see that you have been struggling. It seems to me that your attention has been on how you will survive.”
Pausing for a long moment, the master continues: “You will probably survive.”
The master: “and you also focus too much on how to be successful…That’s a wrong question.”
Pausing again for a longer moment, looking at me in complete calmness of a master, he continues: “The question is how to be useful.”
With that, I am enlightened. A great teacher changes my life in a matter of seconds.
