Enlightenment will happen to you, you know, when you are very, very, very truthful to the fact or truthful to, not to, if truthful to, although you are not truthful toward reality or fact from both sides, but even, you know, if you are very truthful to one sided view of life, you know, then you have chance to attain enlightenment, you know.
