The Way Of The Way 315

Someone once asked: what happens to an enlightened person when they die?

It’s a curious question in that the person asking is clearly not enlightened; so why would they be asking a question which has no relevance to them! Maybe that’s what unenlightened people do?

An enlightened person is not a person. An enlightened person was never born and never dies, as an enlightened person is the universe which is eternal.

An enlightened person manifests in life as we all do, as a temporary physical human form. But the physical form of an enlightened person is not their identity. If it was, they clearly weren’t enlightened and would surely die as do all forms.
