Enlightenment is state of knowing that all is one and one is all. That everything is you and you are everything. Some even come to the idea that they
are god. Hence, being part of a greater celestial body.
It's a feeling of great truth and while many may come to this fact without meditation, there is no meaning or value upon this knowing. When you've
truly reached it you 'feel' connected like you know the stars in the sky, the ants on the ground, the trees on the Earth to the dust on Mars are a kin
to you. This is what it means to be truly enlightened. They will not only change the way you look at the world, but the way you act and respond to
humans, animals, and nature on a whole new level.
When you wish bad things upon others you ultimately wish them upon yourself. Knowing this, the human race can only move forward with love,
companionship, and care. A world only that has been dreamed of can emerge if we let it.
