The miracle

 

The pilgrim approached a sadhu who was resting on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar, and told him:

—“I heard that you are an enlightened saint who is capable of performing miracles…What miracles can you do…?”

The sadhu replied:

—” “When I eat… I eat…when I drink…I drink…when I walk … I walk, and when I sleep… I sleep…”

The pilgrim looked at him, surprised, and answered:

—“But those are not miracles; I also eat, drink, walk and sleep…”

—“Nooooooo…”

Answered the holy man,

— “When you eat, you remember; when you drink, you think; when you walk, you yearn for something; and when you sleep, you dream…but when I eat… I only eat…when I drink… I simply drink… when I walk …I merely walk, and when I sleep…. I simply sleep…”
