Freedom vs. Polished.

I-Dont-Think-This-Is-What-Gautama-Buddha-Had-In-Mind...

Watching a near death clock with its second hand twitching but not ticking. An Arahant could sever Grasping & Attachment (Chains 7 & 8 in the rebirth engine) destroying the dark machineries of fate forever. But, in his mind… chains 1 through 6 are still constantly active and firing. Each producing incomplete burns. Twitching… but not enough to tick.

This is why I love the Buddha so much. In order for Buddhahood to occur, all desires must be cleansed, habits uprooted and the mind itself fully rewired. This wouldn’t surprise anyone who knows how long the process actually takes. One would manifest a revamped Operating System far beyond the Architect’s reach.
