Getting to the other side

Love this little parable:

One day a young Buddhist on his journey home, came to the banks of a wide river. Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him, he wondered how to cross such a wide barrier. Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey, he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river. The young Buddhist yells over to the teacher, "Oh wise one , can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river?"

The teacher ponders for a moment, looks up and down the river, and yells back "My son, you are on the other side."
