Everything I read seems to have a slightly different definition. Every time I think I know, I learn something or come to understand something new that changes my idea of enlightenment. What is it to you?
enlightenment is an illusion , forget all the concepts and just trust what you are feeling is the only way you have there is no need to maintain anything except awareness. As long as you are aware your concious attention will push you to the thing that you most require and its never wrong. Trust.
Realizing that the spritual sensation of awe, which many faiths attritube to higher powers or the touch by god, is the transient recognition of your ancestral lineage stretching back millions of years… all their sufferings and sacrifices, embodied omnipresently in your collective cellular being… remnants of maternal love, of mother to child, passed down countless generations… instilled in every beat of your heart, in every breathe you take… acknowlege your ancestral presence in their simultaenous matter and energy forms… before every meal or bite of food, be mindful of the long, arduous road we’ve taken to get here… be grateful… be enlightened.
