Q153. Student: “What am I when my body is not me?”

A. Master: “Where are you from?”
Student: “I am from New York.”
Master: “How did you come?”
Student: “By plane.”
Master: “How is the weather there these days?”
Student: “Very fine.”
Master: “That’s all. Nothing else.”


Is that all? What is that?
When lost, turn back the way you’ve just come.
