→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: UNLESS YOU ARE ENLIGHTENED..
vertical line Posted on Oct.16.2013 @ 12:06AM EDT by leoj99
Unless  you are enlightened don't talk about spirituality. When you talk you think. If you talk you are only adding to the misery. Most people who are unenlightened are always talking and doing something about spirituality - thus complicating more the suffering....LOL

vertical line And when someone get enlightened he cannot talk either. Because if he talk it is useless. Who will understand what he is talking about...LOL.
People just kick his butt since no one understands what he is saying.
Impossible, indeed...lol

vertical line So either way talk is useless. But unenlightened beings like to talk a lot but they are very funny. If an enlightened being talk it is useless but important and make sense. They can contribute to stop crazy people but crazy people kick his butt...lol

vertical line The whole point of talking about spirituality is to convey an understanding to those who have not experienced it.  Unfortunately you can't really convey spirituality through language, so you must try to nudge them in the right direction

vertical line The problem of language is that you induce them to think more about the words. Almost all are thinking too much already and you induce them to think more about the words...lol

I've had many overlaying perspectives on this topic, my own and edge wise. It was refreshing to get another's perspective. Great suggestion, woodsman.

vertical line So much talking about not talking ... non-sense.
Unless you are enlightened??
There are no enlightened people ...
Only enlightened actions.

vertical line when someone says 'the Buddha' do they mean the person from Nepal in our imaginations called Siddhartha ?

i never met him,

or do they mean enlightened mind ?

none of us are ever distant from that.
