The Enlightenment of Sokei-an Sasaki

"One day I wiped out all the notions from my mind. I gave up all
desire. I discarded all the words with which I thought and stayed in
quietude. I felt a little queer—as if I were being carried into
something, or as if I were touching some power unknown to me . . . and
Zzzt! I entered. I lost the boundary of my physical body. I had my
skin, of course, but I felt I was standing in the center of the
cosmos. I spoke, but my words had lost their meaning. I saw people
coming towards me, but all were the same man. All were myself! I had
never known this world. I had believed that I was created, but now I
must change my opinion: I was never created; I was the cosmos; no
individual Mr. Sasaki existed."

Can't wait to act. I want to get to acting and show everyone that I
can do it better then anyone else.
