Something about enlightenment

Demanding just doesn't work:

If we demand enlightenment, it hides. . . . All that we can do is make ourselves enlightenment-prone. We learn to treasure the possibility of awakening in all moments and circumstances. We learn to simplify and cultivate the receptivity of heart that can be touched by profound understanding. We learn to listen deeply and discover stillness amid the movement in our world.

-- Christina Feldman

I really like the idea of making ourselves "enlightenment-prone". It's a way of being proactive without triggering the likelihood of our getting all wound up about it.
