There once was a young monk who was very devout and
worked ever so hard at being holy. There wasn't a second
in the day he wouldn't fill with reading about the
saints, asking questions to his teachers, debating the
finer points of theosophy with fellow monks, writing
meaningful poems, singing holy songs and praying to
every angel, every saint his religion had to offer.
One of his teachers watched him and recognised a younger
self; he ordered the young monk to sit in the garden and
talk to no-one for a week.
The young monk grudgingly obeyed; he played games in his
head from dawn to dusk and nearly went mad with hopping
impatience. But after three days had passed, slowly the
garden began to work its magic; and on the morning of
the fourth day, as the sun rose, a threshold was finally
breached - the young monk fell silent in the beauty of
it all, and simply adored everything, and when at last
he gave a simple "Thank You" to his creator, for the
first time he had the feeling there was really someone
there, he had been heard at last.
