A neighbor found Nasruddin on his knees searching for something. “What are you searching for?” the neighbor asked. “My key,” Nasruddin said, “I lost it.”
Both men got on their knees to search for the lost key. They looked and looked but to no avail. After awhile the neighbor said, “Where did you lose the key?” Nasruddin replied, “I lost it at home.” The exasperated neighbor exclaimed, “Good Lord! Then why are you searching for it here?” Nasruddin looked at him and said, “Because there is more light here.”
Discuss: What is the “key” in this story? What is “home?” What would you have said to Nasruddin after he told you, “Because there is more light here”?
