People, forget about enlightenment. I don't even see how that got brought up into this discussion. It is such a silly thing to argue about. What is
more important than claiming a certain state of mind, is letting go of our current state of mind, no matter what it is. That is the path to
enlightenment anyways, it is about letting go of everything, thus no longer being bound to the cycle of birth and death.
The OP posted about his/her feelings as of late, hoping to receive some feedback. He/she sounds depressed and or anxious about something. It is a
common mistake to attribute these feelings to some exaggerated state of existence, or some "coming ascension", conspiracy stuff. When we feel low,
we want to counter that with perceptions of grandeur, it is quite normal. The ego feels wounded and so it wants to make itself feel better with
illusions, maybe even of transcending itself. What is most important is to not attach our identity to any of these feelings; not the bad ones nor the
good ones because the 'good ones' lead to the bad ones. Just try it for a few weeks.
Anger arises, but you are not identified with the anger, now allow it to fall away.
Despair arises, but you are not identified with despair, now allow it to fall away.
Joy arises, but you are not identified with joy, now allow it to fall away.
Excitement arises, but you are not identified with excitement, now allow it to fall away.
And so on.
