In lieu of striving for enlightenment I think I'll just work on staying awake for 30 minutes at a time. Not that easy. Through years of schooling, sitting in meetings, and now sitting zazen, I like to imagine that I've somehow developed the ability to play off my hypnagogic twitching as merely turning in my seat, adjusting my posture, nothing wrong here, you've got my full attentio... AAH!
If the title "Buddha" or "Bodhi" means "Awakened One," does it mean permanently awakened, or intermittently awakened? How do you say "Frequently Startled Awake One" in Sanskrit? Maybe the more often I doze off, the more awakenings I will accumulate, ergo the more Buddha-like I'll be. Even as we speak. I dozed off right in the middle of that sentence. Can you feel the enlightenment just zzzzz. Huh?
