“When you want God as badly as you want the air, then you'll find him ! ”

A holy man was meditating by a river when a young man interrupted him.“I have looked for God everywhere and I didn't find him. Can you show God to me ?"The holy man jumped up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him into the river, and plunged his head under water. After holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling to free himself, the holy man finally pulled him up out of the river. The young man coughed up water and gasped to get his breath. When he eventually quieted down, the holy man spoke. “Tell me, what did you want most of all when you were under water.” “Air!” answered the man. “Very well,” said the holy man. “When you want God as badly as you want the air, then you'll find him ! ”
