Disciple: Master, how long will this journey take?
Master: As long as it should.
Disciple: Hmmm… I meant to ask – how many years will it take?
Master: (Smiles) … As many as required.
Disciple: Sheesh…. Why do you not give me a direct answer?
Master: My answer is as direct as it should be.
Disciple: Look, you are NOT helping at all. For the last time, when will my journey end in this world?!
Master: Dear one, though we are all on the path of self-mastery, your progress can only be determined by yourself alone! Even I cannot master the lessons on your behalf. Ha..ha.. But judging by your questions, I think you will be around for a very … very…long time!!
