And suddenly out of nowhere. There were lights surrounding the old man instead of shining bright inside him.

An eager news reporter grinned and said “An honour to meet you sir, you are the wisest man around, please share your wisdom”

The old man cleared his throat reluctantly.

“What is there to tell you all?

You have all the knowledge inside.

You don’t need anyone’s approval or audience.

The spotlight is INSIDE.

Just close your eyes, focus on your breaths,

123, that’s it

And tune in to your own channel.

Your unique space on this planet.”

A voice cried out about a multi million dollar scam

on that side of the timezone.

And the footsteps, the mikes and cams, thundered away.

Leaving the Hermit alone with a smile.
