The answer has always been 42

When you realise all is a hoax,
you know your Guru knows,
you burst out in laughter.
He has been dancing for you to laugh.
The smile beyond space and time
sends the secret message.
The Intellect is busy rationalising.
The Wiseman is playing, dancing with wit.
But when you laugh —
it is time to take on the wit and dance.

The passing down of wisdom

What is art, you say?
The way a teacher dances
with his disciple,
and only —
only to the disciple
when he realises it,
sees it —
is art.
How do they dance, you ask?
Well, they play games,
a tap here, a tap there;
it is like
trimming a bonsai,
planting seeds of wisdom,
masked well,
hidden in disguise.
