"Where shall I look for enlightenment?" the disciple asked.
"Here," the elder answered.
"When will it happen?"
"It is happening right now," the elder answered.

"But what should I look for?" the disciple continued.
"Nothing, just look," the elder said.
"But at what?" the disciple asked again.
"At anything you eyes alight upon," the elder answered.
"But must I look in a special kind of way?"
"No. The ordinary way will do," the elder said.
"But don't I always look the ordinary way?"
"No you don't," the elder said.
"But why ever not?" the disciple asked.
"Because to look you must be here. You're mostly
somewhere else," the elder said.
