Day To Day



A new student threw himself into his practice. He was determined to become enlightened. He meditated endlessly, read countless books, and attended many retreats. One day, he suddenly left the temple and no one saw him for quite some time. Then on one day he showed up and the master asked him, “How is the search for enlightenment going?” The student replied, “Terrible! I became so disgusted, I stopped. I just try to make it day to day.” The master replied, “Excellent, you are making real progress now!”
