Stay Awake

Reading time ~1 minute

Disciple: "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."

Disciple: "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?"

Teacher: "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise."
