vertical line Posted on Oct.07.2013 @ 01:21AM EDT by justin
when someone becomes this thing enlightened is it the buddha seeing itself  itself, or an individual becoming enlightened ?

the all understanding the all or the individual becoming the all ?

or is it water turning into mountains and mountains flowing into streams ?

vertical line Perhaps "enlighternment" is a condition that one almost free of attachment on any emotion , a condition just before emptiness .......in my current Buddhism of Buddhism , all existence regardless living such as all human , animal , plant , micro-orgsm or non-living like rock , soil , water , dirt , table , chairs etc is originally nothingness - the Buddha .......but exist due to polluted energy and as in human that polluted energy is ' ourselves" that is all our emotions ........so we will exist and continue to exist as long as we have the will , the emotion to exist .........Buddhism is thel process that will bring us back into our original condition naturally....so as human travel into this process with realization on Buddhism , human will decreased in attachment on emotion towards emptiness back into nothingness ...so "enlighternment " is a condition that one almost free of all knowledge , all emotion before journey into emptiness ......

vertical line Is the Buddha (enlightened mind) the one who thinks other Buddhas (which are not others so therefore itself) questions are crazy or is it an in dividial thinking another individual is crazy ?

Is the one who has an opinion of 'in my understanding' understand or is there another who understands and the opinions one is trying to learn from that example ?

Crazy not crazy is not it

Understanding not understand is not it

Not two not three

Buddhas step beyond these duality not that I can say

That is why the mountains will flow into streams

And why waves do not have names
