Early Fragment (2)

And what of enlightenment? I asked. What do you make of that?

It’s a name bestowed on an ideal, future-self, by those who long for it.

So there’s no such thing? I asked. No one is ever enlightened?

I didn’t say that, he answered. There are some. Here and there. Maybe.

And how do we know them? Who can we believe? I asked.

The world seemed full of people claiming to be enlightened. Most of them had something to sell.

That’s simple, he smiled. By looking in the mirror and reading Proverbs 26:12. Let me know what you see.

That was all he said, so later, I fished out my bible, and did exactly that.

Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
