    Never assume you know everything or more than anyone you meet or assume you don't need to learn more, wherever, whenever, even from watching ants work, fish swim, birds fly or children play. That's why ancient structures stand and new ones collapse, the ancient builders didn't assume they knew everything like modern engineers do. In recent "500 year" floods new bridges were inundated or washed out, bridges over a centruy old stayed high and dry and survived despite "poorer" engineering and simpler construction materials. Enlightenment is not so much about "achiueving" any level of knowledge, it is about being open to recieve, study, understand and sort out the flow of information, understanding the natural harmony of things, some will say one particular religion or another will do all this for you, but if you don't learn all choices, you won't comprehend a thing if you never see the options, even if you guess right by chance. Keep an open mind, question everything, keep learning. The desire is the first step. ;)

  • There is a ritual for this... first walk around in a circle three times while waving a lit bag of poo over your head (be sure to do this out of doors) throw the bag at the nearest bush, God will appear to you as a burning bush, listen to the bush, you will be enlightened just like Moses.

    i don't be attentive to which motor vehicle of Buddhism you're analyzing yet being born as an animal is purely better faraway from having the ability to prevail in enlightenment. In Vajrayana besides, the wonderful is a efficient human delivery and that i don't think of that even stops with being human I propose being a human with the will, area, and components to verify the dharma. In different words, you're born with a connection, an interest, and a means to prepare. Being born an animal is extra suffering because of the fact of their lack of understanding and the upward push in suffering besides as how they don't look to have the ability to prepare or comprehend the dharma. Our karma works to advance our opportunities to be reborn in a state the place there is dharma . i think of interior the bardo the animal is extra perplexed because of the fact that is final existence became as an animal so i think of there is extra confusion in an already perplexed state. that is not that they don't have the will that is that because of the fact of their clouded concepts they won't see as sparkling interior the bardo. i think of it is proper to people to we purely have somewhat extra readability going into the bardo yet subsequently we meditate so that they can see our nature concepts. Animals are actually not exempt or with out the suffering stated interior the 4noble truths. They prepare to all sentient beings

    At that time Jesus said in response: “I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to babes..Matthew 11:25

    God gives an understanding of his purposes and personality to those who are sincere and humble in heart. (1 Corinthians 1:26-28)

    However, there exists a God in the heavens who is a Revealer of secrets...Daniel 2:28

    The answer is written in the Bible, but you may need help to find it, so pray for help, pray for Gods spirit to reveal to you the secrets.

    Morality, both internal and external, practice, right actions, right intentions.

    May I suggest the Dalai Lama's "How to Practice."? It's a really beautiful book that has changed my life profoundly. No matter your faith, Buddhist philosophy can bring an incredible peace and tranquility to your life.

    Dear mai kitten, if there is anything to be know about our existence and to be known about God, we can authentically look to his word (The BIble) and find the answers we need. its not about finding our own personall enlightenemtn, its about reading Gods word, he has included everything we need to know. the Most important question he has answered is the question of sin and death. the BIble says sin has seperated us from him. Every time we transgress Gods Commandments by lying, stealing, looking with lust ect, we sin against Him and anger him, and he is a just and Holy God who sees our sins as grave and very filthy. he has promised Justice for all who have transgressd his law, he promise all liars will have thier part in the lake of fire. he has However provided a solution. he himself came to earth and suffered and died on the cross for your sins. You broke the law and Jesus paid your fine. The Only way to be saved is To repent (turn from sin) and place your faith and trust in Jesus, the one who died for you. The Moment you do God will forgive you and grant you everlasting life. Then it is important to continue reading his word (BIble) and educate ourself on How to live our Christian lives.

    God Bless

    Well if you are Buddhist you can sit for weeks on end under a buddhi tree. Siddhartha says it will come just wait for it.
