vertical line "People they want to go somewhere and they don't have no railroad fare, plane fare, train fare, or boat fare... or don't have no fare period.

There's one way of getting there; I've been using the method for twenty-five years or more, me and old Sonny, and it seems to have paid off."

"Well how is that man?"

"Just walk on."

There is a form of enlightenment on an intellectual level that one attains with learning and meditation.  One can understand 'oneness' this way and live a better life.  That is the purpose of meditation, to live a better life through release of tension, cleansing of spirit, and preparation for future struggles.

Enlightenment on a spiritual level cannot be achieved, attained, earned, bargained for, begged for, or anything else one can 'do'.  Also no one can help another toward it as that is another 'doing'.  It comes to oneself from oneself from within.  There are no external factors.

Thus Dogen refused to allow himself to be called a Master.

It has been said, "One sits and sits and sits, and then one day 'whooooosh'."

There is nothing for it but to wait.

The fastest way to enlightenment is to get a really big book, like the unabridged English Dictionary, and whack yourself over one of your big toes with it as hard as you can.

If it doesn't work the first time, try and try again.
