The longness of the night belied the shortness of the day, as the Zen master, Rohos Rohoror, used to say to some of his students. What did he mean here then? The longness of our night occurs before enlightenment. After enlightenment, the day seems short only in that the night is no longer long, so yes, the night belies the day, until you see through both to the underlying truth of your existence.
