Non-interpretative Looking

     The Master explained to his disciples that Enlightenment would come if they achieved non-interpretative looking.

     What, they wanted to know, was interpretative looking.

     This is how the Master explained it:

     A couple of Catholic laborers were hard at work on the road in front of a brothel when they saw a rabbi slink into the house of ill repute.

     “Well, what can you expect?” they said to each other.

     After a while a parson slipped in.  No surprise.  “What can you expect?”

     Then comes the local Catholic priest who covers his face with a cloak just before he dives into the building.  “Now isn’t that dreadful?  One of the girls must have taken ill.”
