Stay awake

Student: “Is there anything I can do to make myself Enlightened?”
Teacher: “As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning.”
Student: “Then what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?”
Teacher: “To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise.”

~ Anthony de Mello
