Funny, how enlightenment is being used as a claim of title. A label, *sticks it on forehead* now I have it, *takes it off* now I dont.
The very thought and word is causing division, those that have it, and want it, those that have it and dont want it, those that dont have it and want
it, those that dont have it and dont want it.
Enlightenment is a vague term trying to describe something that has no words. Words are made to bring into existence communication by a race that
understands the reality around them through the use of symbols. Truly, one who claims enlightenment, is not enlightened. For you would know
specifically, that you cannot claim it. You can only be it. And by being it, it cannot be shared, or made for others to understand, without them
being it as well.
And as for oneness, that is the closest thing Ive seen said about what it is to be enlightened. Even if it was fully comprehended by the person
saying it or not.
The rabbit hole is deep, and there is no end, there is always more.
We all exist in the same space that has brought forth infinity, but it was through a single seed, a single thought, that has brought forth everything.
We all have part of that seed in us, in our formless space, this is where we are one. But we are separate too, for we have journeyed through eons to
finally be able to create our own incarnations, our own spaces divided from the one, to be able to literally be born into existence. This is a gift,
one that cannot be taken away, but one can give it away, and many do, without even realizing it.
Anyways, these discussions are not bad, for they force you to think about these things. But thinking in of itself will only allow you to see the
shadows of what is truly being discussed here. So no form of rational talk, deduction, philosophy, or argumentation will allow you to see that which
cast the shadows. Only by turning inwardly, by silencing the mind and by allowing the timeless formless self to be heard, truly heard, without thought
saying 'ah yes I understand.' There should only be being, and in this being you can truly listen, then will you know, not believe, but know what it
is you truly speak about.
