final glop of snot for the evening

Even the drop of water is enlightened.
--Zen master (and abbot of Hanguk-sa in Germantown, MD) Shin Go-seong, during one of his more lucid dharma talks.

I could go on at length about what this means, and what meaning I derive from it (esp. re: how Master Shin is treating the issue of enlightenment here), but I'll just let you mentally tongue the sentence and reach your own conclusions.

Just keep in mind that "conclusions" should always be followed either by ellipses (...) or a question mark (?).
