I think the key is that your mind should always be in the right place.
Yes, maybe I'll get there. I'm happy for the process of persistant enlightenment to take as long as it needs. If your mind is always in the right place, well then I imagine you certainly are special as I know very few (ok, none) trully aware peolple that would claim this.
Jedi Knights aside, I'm a simple person with a busy life wanting to listen to anecdotes of how others clear their mind to prepare to learn to find ones aiki.
