there’s a story of a disciple who 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 wastepaper basket. after six months he got another report, which said “now I 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?” and when the guru read that, he said, “he made it! he made it! he finally got it! he got it!”
