I will talk with John Clark and Sister Sea about being on the path to enlightenment.

We will discuss four issue areas concerning how the path works:

1. Does enlightenment entail BEING enlightened by being an example of love and compassion to others, or does enlightenment entail DOING things that help translate the path into any person's specific understanding, even if this means not always demonstrating love and compassion?

2. Does enlightenment require patience because you know every person will eventually reach this state, or do you have to be in a hurry to alleviate the suffering the people are currently experiencing?

3. Can you spoon-feed enlightenment to people? If not, how do you know when people are ready, and what do you do when they are ready?

4. Are you enlightened if you are still in your physical body? Some say no because enlightenment means becoming pure energy. Some people say maybe because it is your choice. Some people say yes because a healthy body is the objective of enlightenment.
