Maybe something here will jog your memory. (You're into a Buddha thing now).
…the path to enlightenment is a path within to know the In-Dweller, the knower of the mind.

Enlightenment is a path seldom traveled by the multitude.
…enlightenment is a path only to be known by the enlightened...
Shinsei said that the path to enlightenment is a path that each of us should walk alone.
Enlightenment is a path, not a sought after outcome is your awareness from the Heart of the Flow of All Life.
"Repression is a good thing in many cases. Enlightenment is a road leading to destruction."

Walking on the Path
http://www.buddhistinformation.com/walk ... e_path.htm
The path that leads to “Enlightenment” is called the ‘Path of the Bodhisattva.’
Enlightenment Being. This is a being whose Buddhahood is assured but who postpones his/her own entry into Nirvana to help all other sentient beings attain to it first. The Buddha himself was described as a Bodhisattva in stories of his previous lives.
Therefore, as individuals seeking the path that leads us to enlightenment, what we need to accomplish and to see as the result of our life is the ability to free ourselves from the control of our delusions. Becoming liberated from the control of the deluded states of mind, developing faith in cause and effect, cultivating wisdom, and having the basis of the minds of renunciation and ethics–if one can practice the combination of all these features together, one can obtain the objectives of the path.
On a trail a man should travel with a companion of equal mind or one who has a better mind; one had better travel alone than to travel with a foolish man.
Those who seek enlightenment must be careful of their first steps. No matter how high one's aspiration may be, it must be attained step by step, and first steps must be taken first. The first steps of the path to enlightenment must be taken in our every-day life, today and tomorrow and the next day.
