someone asked,
"how do you find truth?"

my teacher told this story:

" imagine there was a man
holding your head underwater.
at first you struggle,
trying as hard as you can
to free yourself.
but soon you give up.
there is nothing you can do.

but the moment before you reach 
the man pulls you out.
he asks you,
"what became of most importance
while you were under water?"
and you say, "air."
"nothing else mattered at that point."

"if you want the truth
as badly as you wanted air

then, you shall find it."
