It was night. The moon was full. The teacher had led me to the edge of a great desert canyon, in the middle of which was a dried-up riverbed. One could see what was in the canyon by the light of the moon.
“Shout,” he said. “Shout into the canyon. Shout anything you want.”
So I turned to the canyon and at the top of my lungs shouted, “I’m shouting into a canyon!”
The words echoed against the distant rocks.
“Notice the delay,” said the teacher. “Why is there a delay?”
“Because it’s echoing against the walls of the canyon”
“Because,” he said, “it takes time. It takes time for the sound of your voice to travel to the walls of the canyon. And not just what you hear with your ears, but what you see with your eyes.”
“What do you mean?”
“Look up into the sky. Can you see the stars?”
“Not really, ” he replied. “It takes years and years for the light to reach your eyes. You’re not seeing what is, but what was. You’re seeing what was years ago. You’re seeing the past.”
“But when I look at things on earth, I see the present.”
“No,” he said, “you don’t . Look at the canyon. What you’re seeing is its light. The light takes time to reach your eyes. Even if an instant, it takes time. So you never see what is only what was. The moment you see it, it’s already past . You only see the past, what was, never what is.”
“But then you can never see the Truth?”
“Not with your eyes,” he said. “It’s beyond sound and light.”
“The only way to see the Truth, then, is to see without sight…to see by faith…to perceive that which is beyond perception, to know beyond sensing. For that which i seen is passing away, but that which is unseen is forever…Live by faith and, by faith alone, you will see the Real”
The Mission: Live today not by what you see, but beyond your seeing, beyond your hearing, and beyond your sensing. Live by the unseen-by faith.
