  "But," asked Vaccha persistently, "when one who has this emancipation of mind
(freed from self) dies, where does he go, where is he reborn?

ABOUT WALKING THE PATH
Posted on Mar.26.2009 @ 07:35PM EDT by chontri

Those who think that the eightfold path are the rules
that will fetter them back or tie them down
and do not feels free with them at all,
they will not walk the path or
they will not be able to walk it.
If they try to walk, it's just for a while.
After all, they will quit sooner or later.

Those who just see the eightfold path as the eightfold path
without thinking that eightfold path are the rules
that will fetter them back or tie them down,
they just see and walk
and will walk the path to the end.
This step follows the other continuously,
and like a white cloud floating in the sky
until they'll no longer be seen from the world.

When a man who is in delusion fears to commit a crime or a sin and,
he starts walking the path, that would be better for himself and others.
And if he keeps seeing and walking the path, he will walk it to the end.
until he'll no longer be seen from the world.

When a man who is in delusion does not fear to commit a crime or a sin and,
he keeps committing crimes and sins, he's walking the way into his hell.

When a man who is not in delusion moves his feet at wherever he is,
each and every one of his steps comprises each and all of the eight.
