It may be that they are seeking security when courage is required,
or freedom when actually there is no choice.
And so the person turns round and round in circles.
The teacher has to remain still in the face of these issues.
He seeks the center and there he quietly remains like a ship
whose sails are spread waiting for the wind....
When the student approaches the teacher,
he will find him in the place
which he himself is seeking.
When the answer comes, it comes for both.
Both are listeners in that space.
