Zen: A way to distinguish the nature of the self

The guest stops at an inn where he passes the night, and as soon as he has done so, he packs and continues his journey because he has no time to stay longer.
As to the host of the inn, he has nowhere to go.

The one who does not stay is a guest and one who does stay is a host.
The guest is foreign.
The host is ‘self’.
The nature of the host is to host.

– adapted from Ajnata-Kaundinya’s sharing of his awakening
