Daily Tao - 100 Years, He Asked

He said:

I will set my clock to wake me in 100 years time. I will meditate so deeply that I will not take food, no water and barely one breath. As my body is so still I will age less than one day in all of this time.

The world around me and my clock will go for 100 years of motion and during this time I will do not one thing but meditate on this one question: "Who is meditating?" - When my clock calls me round I will announce my first words for 100 years and they shall be the answer to this one question.

After 100 years he said:

No one is meditating! In 100 years I have meditated and dedicated myself to this quest, I have delved I have persisted, and I have found, for sure, that no one is meditating. I must conclude with my fresh and un-aged mind that: If no one was meditating, then there was no meditation and that - this is one.

Daily Tao is a reprint from Ta-Wan's blog, Daily Cup of Tao, which offers one post per day for an entire year. You also can read these posts in an ebook.
