 The Master meets the novice

 The Monk and the novice:-

An elderly monk was strolling along a quiet country lane in the gentle sunshine approaching from the other direction was a young trainee monk.

Upon meeting each other and after going through the usual ritual of acknowledging each other in the usual manner, the trainee monk enquired “please can you help me, I am seeking the Tao?”

The old man paused for a moment, while looking around him before turning to the novice saying “what a beautiful day just look at those Mountains, just breathe in the air- ahhh” the novice monk quickly responded saying, “please old man I am looking for Tao I have no time to look at the mountains”.

The elderly monk quietly turned to the novice saying “young man if you cannot see the mountains you will never find the Tao” bowed in reverence then continued on his way.
