I've been looking back through the thread to find questions I was asked but haven't answered:
'is enlightenment empty?'
Yes. It's just a way of describing experience. Descriptions as a category are empty, void of essence.
'provide assertions for your statement 'nibbana is love' from the Pali Canon'.
Well, I have provided a few, but to be frank, Buddha spoke in a very direct and unflowery way; I doubt he would have made such a statement, he would have left others to discover this for themselves. I can find plenty of zen stuff if you like, since this is the free-for-all. I can't convince you of anything as Theravada Buddhists, only as human beings.
Are there other questions I haven't answered? I'll continue looking through the thread to find them but at the moment there are sandwiches for me
I honestly don't mean to sidestep, and Alan, I am not particularly delusional, though all unenlightened people are pretty crazy in the sense of causing our own suffering, after my first realisations I did check psychological texts to make sure I wasn't loopy. Actually, the 'flow state' is known in psychology, and is considered healthy.
Is it sane to believe that Buddhism is the only path because Buddha said so? It would be sane to consider it possible that it was the only discovery of the path to nibbana, but to be firm on this point I would consider delusional without evidence.
