John was thanking Eko for "helping him find his way" but suddenly stopped and noticed the writing on the stick, as it was facing him. It read, "Lift up your eyes and look north John 3:05". Later, in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead" when Kate ran into John and Sayid, they explained to her that they "got a compass bearing". Sayid told Kate that Locke knew this "because of the way the light hit Eko's stick when he was burying him". In the next episode, "Enter 77", Locke asked Sayid "if they are still on course?" Sayid replied, "We are still on a bearing of 3-0-5".
