Perhaps that is not something I should think off , or concern ..just understand myself , the more I understand all my emotions , the more I will free me from myself .....perhaps enlighterned is a condition after I fully accepted myself and me -the emptiness ....perhaps engligterned is a condition is free of knowing , free of emotions ...free of any desire ......even the will to exist ...

So to me , enlighterned is not out of any practice or desire or plan...just progress without holding to ownselves.....not resist the natural process of Buddhism ...

vertical line A part of my life is in the realm of the hypothetical while the other part is in the unknown.

For example the hypothetical would be: "this is because that is, now what if..."

And the unknown would simply be: "I do not know"

The unknown flowers into the hypothetical and the hypothetical flowers into the unknown.

The hypothetical resides into the unknown and the unknown resides into the hypothetical.

Thus, I am liable to just act.

Actually those two do not mix. The hypothetical are the results of your thinking. The unknown is what you cannot think of. But what you do not know is a fact while your hypothesis are just illusions.

vertical line It is more than enlightenment but also a way of having a healthy living with other being. Being enlightened through Zen Buddhism creates a harmony to others and by action, a person may see what lies ahead and be enlightened the way you react, understand things in the world.
