Comment on Article

"What must I do for Enlightenment?"

"Nothing."

"Why not?"

"Because Enlightenment doesn't come from doing? It happens."

"Then can it never be attained?"

"Oh yes it can."

"How?"

"Through non doing."

"And what does one do to attain non doing?"

"What does one do to go to sleep or to wake up?"
