I've been interested in Buddhism (paticularly zen) for many years now. However I have come to feel that enlightenment is an unattainable ideal. I don't believe I can fucntion normally without the predjudices and assumptions that I have developed through my life, even though I can see past them. I have had moments of elation which may be comparable, but I think this could be more physioloigcal or intellectual than spiritual.

Has anyone had any experiences which are either spiritually profound or relate to enlightenment?
