Although it’s, essentially, “un-enlightening” to seek enlightenment, you still have to go looking for "IT" until you finally discover that there’s nothing to find and there’s no one there to find it. And then you LAUGH! :))

A Smile

Shakyamuni held up a lotus
so Kashyapa smiled.
Not at all.
The lotus smiled
so Kashyapa smiled.

Nowhere was Shakyamuni!
