In the soft gloom of current selves there still shines a light.
There is a Buddhist story that goes something like this:
A old priest was leading a group of new monks on a walk in the desert at night. It was very dark. There was no moon and millions of stars glistened in the sky. It was totally quiet.
The old man stopped and said to the group, “Look up and see the stars.”. All did as he demanded and were deeply moved by the radiant beauty overhead.
“Now look again at who’s looking”, the priest said.
With that, some monks attained enlightenment.
Now, dear viewer, look at this picture and tell me who’s looking.
