"So that is the process of Satsang, melting the ice, melting the mind. When the ice becomes water it is Consciousness. It becomes fluid, flowing, adaptable, will conform to any shape. Has no preference. It will always fit where ever it is. It will fit with any situation. This is Consciousness. But as the water gets nearer and nearer to the fire it turns to steam, this is Nirvana. It disappears into the Nothingness, into The Whole. So these are the three stages of the same phenomena. Ice, water and steam. Mind, Consciousness and Nirvana. This is Enlightenment."
