Im 18 years old. For the past few years I've been trying to achieve enlightenment. I did not know what enlightenment was, I just knew that when it
happened, I would know it happened. Well the time has come, when I say "I am enlightened", I believe it.
So, how would I describe this enlightenment?
I see things as they really are. I stop seeing myself as an individual. I see the whole universe and everything in it as living, from the dirt on the
ground to the intelligent extraterrestrial. I know that death is the end of me, but not the end of awareness which lives on in all of us, and is one
and the same. I know that for anything to exist, everything has to exist. Let me tell you this, this current existence is a really whack one in
comparison to others, but of course there are worse. The human condition is really a rather sad one. but it is of no matter, just an observation.
Colors, shapes, sounds, time; these are all illusions. However, to break free from these illusions would be crazy. Our own individual lives are just a
sort of game. A game of control. There really is nothing to worry about, no matter how difficult your problems may seem. There are things I know, that
I cannot put into words, whether it is because I dont communicate well, or because there are no words for this, I cannot say.
Do you know what I am talking about?
