Searching

What should I possibly have to tell you? That you are searching far too much? That in all the searching, you don’t find the time for finding?

“When someone is searching,” said Siddartha, “then it might easily happen that the only thing his eyes still see is that what he searches for, that he is unable to find anything, to let anything enter his mind, because he always thinks of nothing but the o
bject of his search, because he is obsessed by the goal. Searching means: having a goal. But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal. You, oh venerable one, are perhaps indeed a searcher, because striving for your goal, there are many things you don’t see, which are directly in front of your eyes.”
