We cannot know how many of us are actually going to succeed in becoming enlightened in this life. We can never predict these things. But the question of how many of us are going to come to that point in our own evolution where we are willing to do anything that we possibly can in order to succeed is a very different matter. The power to go that far lies in our very own hands. And in the end, there is nothing more that any of us can do than want to be free more than anything else and be willing to back it up with action and with sacrifice. From a certain point of view, whether or not we actually succeed in becoming fully enlightened doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t make any difference. But what does make all the difference in the world is whether or not we are truly willing now.
