The moment you say, “This is the right road,” it becomes wrong…
Four disciples of a mystic were told by the master, “It is time for you to go to the mountains and sit in silence for at least seven days, and then come back.”
They went with the vow to sit there for seven days, in absolute silence. After just a few minutes the first said, “I wonder whether I have locked my house or not.”
Another said, “You fool! We have come here to be silent and you have spoken!”
The third said, “You are a greater fool! What has it to do with you? If he spoke, at least YOU could have kept silent!”
The fourth said, “Thank God, I am the only one who has not spoken yet!”
There is an irresistible urge to say when you experience.
You want to share it — it is uncontainable.
You can see other people searching for it, and you have got it.
It is as if you are standing at a crossroads: you know the right way, and people are searching for it; how can you remain silent?
It is irresistible! But the problem is, the moment you say, “This is the right road,”
it becomes wrong. Saying it is falsifying it. Truth is infinite and words are very finite.
