Ditch the Raft

Andi over at Ditch the Raft has a beautifully designed site with interesting content to boot. From her I learned of Kevin Kim's call for posts on the topic of why we meditate. I have something in the works to be posted soon. But for the moment, there's this, written with Andi and Kevin in mind:

Ditch the raft
Kick away the ladder
Execrete the laxative
Empty the bladder.

Burn the stick
With which you kindle the coals --

Abandon goals to attain the Goal.

There are allusions to two Western philosophers. Can you name them?
