The lost key - A Sufi parable

Once upon a time, there was a man who lost his keys. So he starts searching for them outside the house in the bright light of day.

The Sufi master walks by and sees him searching, so the Sufi master asks: “What are you looking for?”

The man replied, “I lost my keys inside the house.”

The Sufi master asks, “Why then are you looking for them outside?”

The man says, “Because the light is better out here.”
