Alertness as a Master-key

A voice asked: ‘How far do we still have to go?’ Another responded: ‘I’ve been traveling for centuries, and always asked myself that same question. Over the years, I’ve begun to believe that the concept of one arriving at a destination is an illusion. I think even when one reaches a particular destination, another emerges ahead of them…’ In that moment a bird flew above their heads and said: ‘If you had paid enough attention to yourselves, both of you would have realized that you have not been moving, but instead hypnotized by all forms of movements surrounding you. Now I say to you, begin to walk.’ The two voices mutated to silence.
