    A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery.

    He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car

    broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?"

    car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound.

    A sound not like anything he's ever heard before. The Sirens

    that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to

    his mind. He doesn't sleep that night. He tosses and turns

    trying to figure out what could possibly be making such a

    seductive sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the

    sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

    man goes back to the monastery and pleads for the answer again.

    that beautiful sound is is to become a monk, then please, make

    me a monk."

    many blades of grass there are and the exact number of grains

    of sand When you find these answers, you will have become a


    and knocks on the door of the monastery. "I have traveled the

    earth and have found what you have asked for: By design, the

    world is in a state of perpetual change. Only God knows what

    you ask. All a man can know is himself, and only then if he

    is honest and reflective and willing to strip away self


    now show you the way to the mystery of the sound."

    says, "The sound is beyond that door."

    wooden door is another door made of stone. The man is given the

    key to the stone door and he opens it, only to find a door made

    of ruby. And so it went that he needed keys to doors of emerald,

    gold and diamond.

    door! He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door

    he is utterly amazed to find the source of that haunting and

    seductive sound... But I can't tell you what it is because

    you're not a monk.
