Zen Flesh, Zen Bones: A Collection of Zen and Pre-Zen writings: here is an example:
Open your own treasure house.
Daiju visited the master Baso in China.
Baso asked: "What do you seek?"
"Enlightenment", replied Daiju.
"You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?" Baso asked.
Daiju inquired: "Where is my treasure house?"
Baso answered: "What you are asking is your treasure house."
Daiju was enlightened! Ever after he urged his friends: "Open your own treasure house and use those treasures."
