Am I Enlightened?
For those thinking about that, the answer is twofold. Firstly, who cares. Stop caring and thinking about it. Caring and thinking about it is just another ego diversion from what your true goal should be; clearing the mind of explosive devices ego relies upon to keep you in ego, also known as undoing.
Secondly, enlightenment doesn’t “come.” It has never left. It has never gone anywhere. Enlightenment is just as it always was and forever will be. One doesn’t ‘get’ enlightenment. It’s like a sunrise; you don’t get ‘sunrised.’ Sunrise comes of its own accord, it comes when its supposed to come. It knows the timing. It shines its beams of love and warmth at just the right moment, after a period of dark.
I have previously said, as have countless others, that between ego life and Creation a curtain was dropped. It was dropped in the instant of the so-called separation. In the moment of the great fall, the original sin, or, as some have called it, the triumph of Satan.
Triumph? Like it’s a game. And here we are folks, at the big game. The important one. And the score is— God nil, Satan 1. God’s on the losing side right now but the big guy will make a comeback. We know he will, the odds are on his side and money is pouring in. Yes folks, the smart money’s on God.
If it weren’t so sad it’d be hilarious. But it is what it is, until it isn’t, meaning, while the dreamer dreams the nightmare is real enough and all the talk about the whole thing being but a twisted fable does no good. One needs to roll up the sleeves and get stuck into lifting up the curtain.
Enlightenment is a return to consciousness and awareness of that to which we are at all times connected but have for a brief period forgotten. It’s a little like coming out of amnesia.
