    Greetings one & all

    Hope you are enjoying your time with us here at the forum!

    A lot of words have been written about enlightenment - what it is and what it isn't.

    So here's a few more words on the subject - feel free to disagree with it if you must.

    Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh explains:

    “I laugh when I think how I once sought paradise as a realm outside of the world of birth. It is right in the world of birth and death that the miraculous truth is revealed. But this is not the laughter of someone who suddenly acquires a great fortune; neither is it the laughter of one who has won a victory. It is, rather, the laughter of one who; after having painfully searched for something for a long time, finds it one morning in the pocket of his coat.”

    Shame Trump hasn't got one. He believes he's a decent human. :p

    Wise Master, makes sense ... "just" tells me "never have a 'not Really Good Sense of Humour' day"
