A disciple told his guru that he was going to a far place to meditate and hopefully attain enlightenment. So he sent the guru a note every six months to report the progress he was making.
The first report said, “Now I understand what it means to lose the self.” The guru tore up the note and threw it in the waste- paper basket.
After six months, he got another report, which said, “Now I have attained sensitivity to all beings.” He tore it up. Then a third report said, “Now I understand the secret of the one and the many.” It too was torn up. And so it went on for years until finally, no reports came in.
After a time, the guru became curious, and one day there was a traveler going to that far place. The guru said, “Why don’t you find out what happened to that fellow.”
Finally, he got a note from his disciple. It said, “What does it matter?”
When the guru read that, he said, “He finally got it!
He got it!”
