do not understand... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: WHERE TO RETURN
vertical line Posted on Jun.13.2008 @ 08:16PM EDT by Mslapik
When one attains enlightenment, to where do they return?
"this" world, or that one.
"here" or somewhere else.
They all seem to return here, but how do they know?

vertical line Then why act in this world. This is what I mean. Not return, as in desire, but return in thought and action. With unknowing, it would seem a little difficult...

vertical line Act without doing;
work without effort.
Think of the small as large
and the few as many.
Confront the difficult
while it is still easy;
accomplish the great task
by a series of small acts.
~Lao-Tzu
