A Zen monk told his master that he was going to the mountains to live alone . . .
The Master asked : " why ? "
The monk replied, " I want to leave society, culture, and all humans I have ever known behind."
" Are you taking your mind with you ? " asked the Master.
" Yes, of course, I don't know how to leave it behind. "
" Then stay here. Save yourself that long trip, the things you want to flee you'll always carry inside your mind. "
