sneaking up on god

Did you ever catch yourself trying to sneak up on your chosen god or realization or whatever? Somewhere, whispering in the mind, is the thought that if you are just good enough, virtuous enough, kind enough, intellectual enough, emotional enough ... if you could recite enough text or build enough temples or expend enough energy ... THEN you would find the prize in hand and all would be well.

Sneaking up on god.

The picture that comes to my mind is of a curled-up, well-fed cat, its eyes half open as it watches the end of its tail and concocts sure-fire strategies for nailing that twitching, seemingly-independent sucker.
