vertical line Posted on Dec.15.2012 @ 04:30PM EDT by QuantumZen
As far as I understand an enlightened being lives a nice honest life, help others and isn't concerned with imaginary problems other people have (I'm talking about income tax xD), while he can still lose his temper or feel down once in a while (because he is not a stone Buddha). Moreover, every now and then he (willingly or not) experiences deep spiritual feelings (like being one with the universe). I think I had a glimpse of that once. So I would think that this is the way of Buddha. One couldn't be it all the time, how would he pay the income tax?

Wonderful ....

Now like an eyeball can not see itself, the mind can not see itself.
So, when we practice sitting, ... awareness is the practice ... perfection!!!

No, it's not the way of the Buddha. The Buddha never paid income tax as he was  self-employed and well below the tax threshold. 

 And he was ‘like that’ all the time so he had his cake and ate it. It's one of the perks of being enlightened.  I don’t pay income tax either.

no-one paid income Tax before the war mongers decided it was necessary to finance the wars waged on our cowardliness.

Are you looking to go to jail?
Nevermind, I just started to chase a thought ... letting go now .... hahaha
