‘Enlightened being is not something that you can pick up  and put in your purse or knapsack like this book. It is not tangible. You cannot hold it in your hand or pass it around. You cannot put it down. The path to it is just doing. Just being. Just starting. It is action. Action itself is energy and cannot be “seen.” We may see the effects of action or see action performed, but we do not see action. It is not an object. You can’t get it and you can’t get rid of it. So the path, in this way, is unattainable. Not get-able. Yet it is do-able. It is be-able. It is certainly start-able, and we know this because we have already started.’ (Being Black)
