was a master, supposed to be very enlightened, and one day
he was sitting there in a very expansive mood, so the disciples
asked him about the stages of consciousness that he had passed
through. The master told them that, one by one, God led him
from one stage of consciousness to another. He told the disciples
that God first led him by the hand and walked with him into
the Land of Action. There the master dwelt for several years.
God came back again and led the master to the Land of Sorrow.
There the master lived until his heart was cleansed of all
the inordinate attachment. That was when the master found
himself in the Land of Love, whose burning flames consumed
whatever was left of the self (meaning the small self). This
brought the master to the Land of Silence where the mysteries
of life and death were reviewed before his wondering eyes.
The disciples asked him, "Was that the final stage of
your quest for the divine?
master said, "No, no. That was not the final stage.
day God said to the master, who was at that time a seeker
of the Truth, "Today I shall take you to the inner
most sanctuary of the temple, to the heart of God Hirmself.
So the master, at that time, was led to the Land of Laughter.
the journey to the Land of the Absolute, I think we have
to pass through many stages of understanding, many stages
of consciousness in order to understand the complete Truth
at the end. "
