Enlightenment is the fundamental realization of all that is not you, or who, in fact, you are.

Okay. . .here goes. . .one sentence

"The ability to transcend both time and space and love unconditionally friends and foes alike."

Thanks for the opportunity to say it, and to give me something to consider.

Rather than to give an entire sentence, I will just use 4 words.

'Waking up to realities'.

Cheers.

The one sentence approach is fine, but it takes a bit more to flesh out the entire world and what's behind it, and yes, be water my friend. Be Christ, be Buddha, be your HS, flow so the water doesnt stagnate. But one could be like unto Christ or an anti Christ. Bruce was a Christ, so they killed him.

A connection to something unknown, felt as a light moving preassure on the body most concentrated on the top of the head giving an euphoric state of being when the mind is calm and undisturbed and a childish feeling of wanting to hug something. Pure oneness connection and love.

Enlightenment is the complete disillusionment of the concept and Idea of Self or I.

you have to be trained to be able to retain the body after your energies reach that peak. true there are varying levels of oneness but enlinghtenment means the max, the ultimate homecoming. One merges with everything, the mind is dissolved. there is no thinking about it

When it comes to being "enlighten" The first thing That came to my mind was this. Please if you haven't read it, I challenge you to do so. It really put my path into perspective.

Are you sitting here reading this message, nothing
You’re probably wondering what the message is, nothing,
Have you started thinking about the message yet, nothing,
Whatever you’re thinking about right now is the message, nothing,
Why haven’t you thought about this message, nothing
Will you ever think about this message again, nothing

Enlightenment is a COUNTERFEIT.

The genuine is connecting with and walking with God

I just now stumbled upon this definition of the word "Illuminati":


il·lu·mi·na·ti
1. People claiming to be unusually enlightened with regard to a subject.
2.Illuminati Any of various groups claiming special religious enlightenment.

This explains WHY everything we are being told about enlightenment is actually a lie.

This also explains why enlightenment is a COUNTERFEIT.

When true enlightenment is realized there is just God. There is no one walking 'with' God.

You and God seem to be in a bit of disagreement.

He's usually right...



Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3


I will walk among you, and will be your God, Lev. 26:12 (2 Cor. 6:16).

God walking in the garden, Gen. 3:8.

Enoch walked with God, Gen. 5:24.

Noah walked with God, Gen. 6:9.

Abram … walk before me, Gen. 17:1

Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel, Gen. 24:40

God, before whom … Abraham and Isaac did walk, Gen. 48:15

God walketh in the midst of thy camp, Deut. 23:14

thy house … should walk before me for ever, 1 Sam. 2:30

I have walked with all … Israel, 2 Sam. 7:7 (1 Chr. 17:6).

Lord require … to walk humbly with thy God, Micah 6:8

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8

You 'and' anything is a misconception. It is one.

When the (assumed) two is seen (realized) to be one - the kingdom shall be revealed.

Non duality - one without a second.

People overly complicate the label enlightenment when it's not something you obtain but something you are.

So it's about detachment of cultural society programming and see through all the illusions it has instilled in us

To me its evolving, a shift onto a lighter level. If you count negativity, unawareness etc as heavy.

Then to En Lighten is to allow yourself to become more spirit.

I wouldnt say its not attached to the physical but its certainly not being trapped by it as much.

Hence, why the buddha went to the Hill to get away .. to have time out from the day to day hussle and bustle, and reflect on his nature.

It's the most important epiphany anyone can have.
It's the moment you realize your place in this world. It's at that moment all trivial things
you thought were important become meaningless, and then you finally see the bigger picture.
