What is the difference between spiritual enlightenment and death?

Question by ?: What is the difference between spiritual enlightenment and death?
If enlightened man becomes a universal consciousness then dead man also mingle with universe when his body is buried.So what is the difference being enlightened and death?
Buddhists say that in Enlightenment there is no ego or emotion.After death of man he never feels ego!
So,why try to be enlightened when its automatically comes as death?
Or it taught because people don’t know(some know but they don’t have its heartful understanding) the uncertainity of life in earth?
Enlightenment lets you one into cosmos and naturaly death also?
Then,meditation for enlightenment is just a preparation for people who don’t know it?because human is very complex?
Many mystics said that its a experience.really what it is?
Why many people not enlightened even they do meditation?

Answer by The Rookie
You are, in fact, answering your own question.
Could you meet death without fear, but with courage and understanding ?
Death, after all, is no stranger to us, for we have lived and died innumerable times,
Encountering one rebirth after another, in the never-ending round of birth and death.

Death is just another change in existence, just moving on yet again.
This is my defination of death.

The difference between Enligthenment and Death is the endless round of rebirth and death.

It is difficult to follow the way to Enlightenment, but it is more difficult if people have no mind to seek such a way.
Without Enlightenment, there is endless suffering in these worlds of life and death.

Those who seek the path to Enlightenment must first remove all egoistic pride and be humbly willing to accept the light of The Enlightened One’s teachings.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all,
One must discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds,and
Wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the
Guidance of wisdom.
As long as people desire Enlightenment and grasp after it, it means that delusion is still with them; therefore, those who are following the way to Enlightenment must not grasp after it, and if they gain nlightenment they must not linger in it.

When people attain Enlightenment in this sense, it means that everything is Enlightenment itself as it is; therefore, people should follow the path to Enlightenment until in their thoughts, worldly passions and Enlightenment become identical as they are.
This is the essence of Enlightenment.

Why many people not enlightened even they do meditation ???
Engaging in meditation does guarantee that a person will be enlightened.
Most probably their minds are still in delusion, not purified.
Meditation( Bhavana) has no religious basis, and it was introduced by Buddha during his time to help people developed their minds.
Without Bhavana we cannot achieve the aim or purpose of our life.
The purpose of life is to see an end to our suffering.
Meditation is the development of the mind to achieve the eradication of mental impurities.
Thus, we gain purity.

The purification of the mind is essential in the practice of Enlightenment.

Nadia Ali — Feels So Good Without ever making the music lose its distinctive trance character, Armin van Buuren released an album bursting with diversity. ‘Mirage’ has set forth a sound that doesn’t let itself be caught in a one-style corner. Singles ‘Full Focus’, ‘Not Giving Up On Love’, ‘This Light Between Us’ and ‘Drowning’ all caused different impact, but exploding the global dancefloors they did. The fifth single taken from ‘Mirage’, is another new story to be told. For the single ‘Feels So Good’, that Armin co-wrote with the famous sing/songwriter duo of Mim and Liv Nervo, he invited the vocal queen of EDM, Nadia Ali. Her seductive voice still warms the crowds, years after her IIO classic ‘Rapture’ first shattered across the arena’s and clubs. For Armin’s ‘Shivers’ album in 2005, she rocked the powerful ‘Who Is Watching?’, now followed by a more playful ‘Feels So Good’ 6 years later. Rapturous as always, Nadia’s voice seductively flirts with a heavy but teasing bassguitar, laidback beat and electric melody. Sweeping you off your feet from first play on, you’ll be hooked to ‘Feels So Good’ in no time. To make ‘Feels So Good’ suit the peak-time moments on the floor, Armin didn’t only bring a warm but techy-edged club mix of the original himself, but also invited Jerome Isma-Ae, Jochen Miller and Tristan Garner to the party.

What are the correspondences between Sumerian religion and Judaism?

Question by Darth Seditious: What are the correspondences between Sumerian religion and Judaism?
I am doing research on the similarities between Sumerian religion and Judaism. One of the things I am looking at is to see if possibly some of the gods became angels in Judaism. Is there any “paganism” that Judaism inherited from the Sumerian religion?

Best answer:

Answer by Sarah
No. Judaism is inherently monotheistic. Angels do not have any power except as God’s servants.

It’s not the Sumerian religion you should be looking at, it’s the Akkadian religion. So many more parallels there.

Q&A: In your opinion, what’s the difference between being religious and being spiritual?

Question by Tonya in TX – Duck: In your opinion, what’s the difference between being religious and being spiritual?
If R&S were split into a Religion subsection and a Spiritual subsection, I know that the “religionists” wouldn’t stay on their side, and the “spiritualists” wouldn’t stay on their side, so I’m not suggesting or advocating that. And I know that you can be spiritual without being religious, and be religious and spiritual, but can you be religious and not spiritual? If you can’t, what’s the difference? Where’s the dividing line between being religious but not spiritual? And are you spiritual if you have a set of beliefs, which include not being a part of a religion? If so, is that a religion in and of itself? I know some atheists and agnostics say they are spiritual but not religious, yet some atheists believe their atheism is a religion? Where’s the line? When does being spiritual cross the line into a religion?
badmp35: So being spiritual is being comfortable in your own skin, while being religious is what allows you to be comfortable in your own skin? Or do I put words in your mouth?

beano: I agree, religion won’t save you. Christ said as much.

Q&A: What is the difference between a “vibe” and an “aura”?

Question by Dude: What is the difference between a “vibe” and an “aura”?
Do both refer to centers of energy emanating from ourselves?

Best answer:

Answer by matt
‘Vibe’ pretty much means ‘feeling’ or ‘sensation’. ‘Aura’ is more specific – it actually means the essence of an individual that emanates from them. Generally it’s take to mean a highly distinctive character (which can almost be seen just by looking at the person).
