After reading my original Thread, I realized. "Who the hell do I think I am?" and so decided to request that it be removed.


I guess I could create a subject out of this called "Delusion of grandeur", I'm about as guilty of it as the next guy.

This darn EGO, really get's a hold of me sometimes.
Turns out that awakening can happen before enlightenment. But enlightenment can trigger an awakening. My original post describes how enlightenment can only take place AFTER an awakening.

.....sigh...


I wish I knew what I know...unfortunately, what I know can only be told to me through my thinking which is not always clear.

Enlightenment is often mistaken as something more than simple realization. We all experience this stuff each and every day, from driving in rush hour traffic to walking out from a dentist appointment.

Now, this is not to dismiss your brief tango with epiphany. Not in the least. This IS how humans learn and gain what is eventually considered to be wisdom. But like the ego you speak of, we should weigh each lesson according to its price because... like in most things, the costlier the product, the better it is in the long term.

Cheers
