"You must let the energy flow through you," said the Grand Master.
"Flow through me?" said Carl. "How is that possible, master? For I am a solid object."
The Grand Master pointed to a box of fresh, glazed donuts on the nearby table. Summoning one of the donuts into his outstretched hand, the kindly master pointed at the hole piercing the delectable center of the pastry. "The donut maintains its solidity, yet this hole allows the chi energy of the universe to flow through it. You must become the donut, Carl. Do you understand?"
A strange sound was the only reply.
The Grand Master turned to see Carl devouring the remaining donuts in the box.
"You are what you eat," said Carl, through a mouthful of sugary goodness.
