What you shared with us is only a symptom, the first result of an enlightenment experience when you realise you are changed but not one other thing in
this world is.
After that you will encounter opposition, not only from those yet to awaken but also from those who believe themselves to be. This too is normal in
our western culture where unbalanced ego is the driving force for everything done.
Your task now is that of a Seed Planter. You are only responsible for planting the seed, and that is where your responsibility ends my friend. We do
not have a right to water those seeds or to insure that they grow... to attempt to is forcing our intent onto others who are not yet ready to bloom,
which will sour the "soil" against you.
Apart from this your secondary task, aligned with the first,is in Shining your Light in the world for others to see. This attracts those who notice
it, and in some small way begins their own journey... planting those seeds again. You will also find people come to you, seeking experience and you
may show them how you reached this point.
More importantly, since you will not be a Teacher.. unless the ego is unbalanced... you can be a teacher who shows others how to access their own
Teacher within. Notice the differences there?
I must say here that an initial enlightenment experience, the Oneness scenario followed by your own ability to open into higher awareness at will.. or
shut it down... is just that, an Initial experience. It begins the process of your own reconnection with the higher-self you are, which will lead to
reintegration with it.
You will still be being a human being, seen as crazy to most, a threat to some and a helper to a few. Your enlightenment is not a trophy, so you will
not always be enlightened, which is against the Belief-system we hold relating to what Enlightenment is.
You will be tested over and over as you learn how to handle the two major aspects of becoming more enlightened, the Responsibility to use what you do
and know for the betterment of humanity by sharing with those who seek and ask you, and, the Power that you can now tap into at will from within your
Personally I think the last one is the more difficult to find suitable uses in our modern world without seeming like an egotistical show-off. You can
use it to empower others, to warm them when freezing, to gain an old concept called Authority which allows one to interact with all physical things at
an atomic level in order to have it do what you intend for it. This is what many misunderstand as magic.. terrible word that one, lol.
Please do not seek to find recognition in the world for your experience, that will lead further down the unbalanced path and arise with new problems
I'll finish this with a quote to consider...
“We priests must live in two worlds, the world of form and the otherworld of force, for true enlightenment lies balanced between them. Let our goal
therefore be: To live and thrive amid form and force, being in the world but not of it.” - St. Cornneille , ‘ The Yellow Book of Ferns’.
