Absurdity

The Master kept scraping a brick against the floor of the room where his disciple sat in meditation.

At first the disciple was content, taking this to be a test of his powers of concentration. But when the sound became unbearable he burst out,

“What on earth are you doing? Can’t you see I am in meditation?”

“I’m polishing this brick to make a mirror out of it,”

said the Master.

“You’re crazy! How can you make a mirror out of a brick?”

“No crazier than you! How can you make a meditator out of the self?”
