Near the summit of a high mountain, a young man sat in a rocky alcove. Wandering the universal consciousness, he came across an old man. They greeted one another as friends do, and the old man bid his friend to follow him toward the summit. It wasn’t long before the elder pointed out a way-mark.
“Those rocks are memories from your current life. Do you see anything in particular?”
“Yes,” said the young man. “A light shining through the rocks.”
Indeed, there was a small point of light shining through a gap halfway up the way-mark which stood at about two metres tall.
“An old, insignificant memory holding you back. You have no further need of it. Take a rock from the ground and use it to block out that light.”
The younger man did as his friend instructed and they walked away.
