What enlightenment are you talking about?
If you're talking about Nirvana of the Buddhist teaching read on, if not, just disregard my post.
Nirvana or enlightenment in the Buddhist teaching, is a state that you achieve the ultimate wisdom and knowledge of everything that we truly realize that every that we used to perceive at being REAL is merely an illusion of our mind. Buddha and his followers alike who achieve enlightenment, their soul is so purified that after they die their soul totally disappears and stops reincarnating thus ending the life/death cycle and suffering forever, that state is called nirvana. Yes, when you achieve enlightenment your soul *disappears* after you die and that is the ultimate end to your existence and all of your suffering for all eternity. Which is considered to be A GOOD THING, the ultimate goal of Buddhist teaching.

In my experience, loneliness is something that I don't really experience any more.
For there to be love, doesn't there always need to be two?

In my experience, loneliness is a state of mind, focused on the feeling of not being Whole and Complete in themselves enough to feel unconditional Love within themselves and thereby feel connected to all. [...]

'Enlightenment' is nothing more than forbidden fruit. The same fruit that Adam and Eve ate. It is basically forbidden knowledge. It might taste good at first, but it comes from the realm of darkness.
Becareful what truth your searching for.

As far as chakra energies go, misusing them is its own punishment eventually.
But never, ever fear enlightment. It's emotionally painful at first, but surviveable and worth it.
