• On Seeing

      A monk asked one of his advanced students to visit his home for a final test before graduating him to the next level. The student entered the home, removed his shoes and walked to the back room. The monk sat with his student and said he was going to ask him a single question to determine whether or not he was ready. "Ok, let's hear it!" said the student. The monk smiled and asked, "When you entered my home, which side of the door did you place your shoes?".

       

      The student was so eager for the test he wasn't paying attention and didn't remember where he put his shoes. The monk looked at him and said, "To know, you must first learn to see."
