To be awakened or enlightened means to obtain a knowledge of all things, Having a deep spiritual understanding or a changed consciousness whereby
everything is seen as unity.
Said to be obtained through various methods, some have used meditation while others have simply looked and found. Almost every religion has a version
of this inner awakening, while some condemn it other's embrace and teach the followers that this is the final goal. Buddhism calls this "Bodhi",
Hinduism calls this "Moksha" while Christians call this "Illumination"
While searching for this knowledge, you "ask" the question and you answer them yet this answer comes from a deeper place, your inner being. You slowly
begin to realize that all is right because we are all one, nothing actually matters and that this life we live is a learning process. You realize
there has been a veil over your eyes and that you saw the world in a tainted way. You feel content with the world and materials no longer matter, you
live in the present and let go of all suffering. This is enlightenment, and it is beautiful.
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.
My consciousness has change tremendously, events and thoughts no longer affect me on a inner level, Your mind is silent yet within it you can hear the
world. I look onto others and wonder how they perceive the world because i cant even fathom looking at it any other way.
Know that this is obtainable by anyone, and that all you need is the will to look for it. Do not become caught up in a materialistic world, in the end
it does not matter.
I wish you all Peace and Love!

I have tried meditation while I use to live in the countryside. I was getting somewhere with it, it was getting easier and easier. Then I moved to
the city. It became impossible to return to the meditative stage that I was while in the countryside.
I have concluded that there is too much "emotional" pollution in town to be focused well enough.
I have not given up but so help me, it is hard to concentrate with all this pink noise.

Thanks for sharing this it seems that many have been subconsciously attacked and have retreated from the chance to experience. But I have a feeling
eventually they will re awaken from the recent rest. There is so much going on down here the minds cannpt concentrate on nothing that isnt physical
or in their grasp. So its nice to see you still carrying the LIGHTS within.

Yup. I agreed. The purpose of life on earth is to simply Live, Learn, and Love. If everybody could realize that then the world would become a
