The Master Does Not Know
"The Seeker approached the Disciple and asked respectfully, “What is the meaning of human life?”
The Disciple consulted the Works of his Master and confidently replied: “Human life is nothing but the expression of God’s exuberance.
“ When the Seeker addressed the same question to the Master himself, the Master said, “I do not know.”
The Seeker says, “I do not know.” That takes honesty. The Master says, “I do not know.” That takes a mystic’s mind that knows things through non-knowing. The Disciple says, “I know.” That takes ignorance in the form of borrowed knowledge."
