On The Wind

It is the second century BCE in Israel, the disciples approach their master and say, “There is a man blowing the ram’s horn in Galilee claiming to be the Messiah. Master, is it true?”

The teacher opens the window and reaches out his hand to feel the wind. After a moment’s concentration, he says, “No, it is not true.”

Most of the students are appropriately impressed at their master’s ability to sense the spiritual reality by the wind. However, one novice, a slightly impudent disciple, is troubled. “If you are so spiritually intuitive,” he asks the master, “then why did you need to put your hand out the window? Why couldn’t you sense the air in the room to see if Redemption had arrived?”

The master responds ever so softly, “Because in my room, the Messiah has already come.”
