Symptoms of Enlightened and Unenlightened Beings
Definitely their symptoms are completely different in Zen Forums.
My observations are that unenlightened beings always gives advices. They almost always seems to know what is bests for others. So they tell other people what to do. They think they are enlightened and the others are not. They make long posts and it is not clear if they are trying to confuse other people or they are confused themselves. If you ask them what did they really said they get irritated.
Enlightened beings seems to be not telling anything. If you tell them anything they ask: Why? ... Why?.. Will you please explain... But it seems to me.. the Why? is actually hitting on the head...
