But we are all thieves. We scold little children and warn them not to steal. The teacher also makes it clear that his students must not look for answers in the back of the book, that they should not steal their answers from somewhere – but if he were to ask himself whether all his answers were stolen or not, it would seem all his answers were stolen as well.
The guru is a thief, the disciple is a thief, the teacher is a thief. All life’s answers are stolen. From stolen answers one can never find peace or joy. Joy is attained by allowing the flowers of answers to bloom on their own – they are not borrowed.
