Am I Enlightened?

There are two answers to this question:

  1. Nobody is enlightened
  2. Enlightenment is all-there-is-and-is-not

But the most profound answer is the absence of the questioner.

Maybe it crept up on me when I wasn’t looking. But there is nobody for it to creep up on. How can everything creep up on itself?
