A hermit was mediating by a river when a young man interrupted him. “Master, I wish to become your disciple”, said the man. “Why?” replied the hermit. The young man thought for a moment. “Because I want to find God”.

The master jumped up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him into the river, and plunged his head under water. After holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling to free himself, the master finally pulled him up out of the water. The young man coughed up water and gasped to get his breath. When he eventually quietly down, the master spoke. “Tell me what did you want most of all when you were under water”.

“Air”, answered the man

“Very well”, said the master. “Go home and come back to me when you want God as much as you just wanted air”.
