After a long hard climb up the mountain, the spiritual seekers
finally found themselves in front of the great teacher.
Bowing deeply, they asked the question burning inside them for so long:
How do we become wise?
There was a long pause until the teacher emerged from meditation.
Finally the reply came, “Good choices.”
“But teacher, how do we make good choices?”
“From experience,” responded the wise one.
“And how do we get experience?”
“Bad choices,” smiled the teacher.
