You could be enlightened today – if you want to

Here’s the story, the gist of it:

Of course, these days, when bamboo groves are few and far between, the master would use something different, like – what? – something in front of you right here, right now …

A hint: someone who is enlightened never ever says, or even thinks, he or she is enlightened.

 

The story came from a book THE SONG OF THE BIRD by Anthony de Mello, S.J. Gujarat Sahita Prakash Anand, India, 1989.

 

THANKS TO MY FRIEND, BRIAN, WHO LOANED ME THE BOOK AND KEPT SAYING “HAVE YOU READ IT?”

Today could be the day!
