A Tale for the Time Being

Missed the discussion/have more to say about A Tale for the Time Being? Discuss it here in the comments. Here’s a question to start off:

Haruki #1 cites a Zen master for the idea that “a single moment is all we need to establish our human will and attain truth” (324). What kind of enlightenment is Ozeki calling for in A Tale for the Time Being? Is it really available to everyone? Would you try to achieve it if you could? Why or why not?
