There are various perspectives on what it means to become enlightened.
Some say it is attaining great wisdom.
Some say it is accepting with gratitude whatever life brings.
Some say it is about allowing light and presence to flow and emanate from and through you.
Some say feeling inner peace is enlightenment.
I believe each one of us, you and me, finds our own way to enlightenment.
There is no ONE WAY and that the curriculum for our enlightenment is our LIFE experiences, changes and challenges.
As I see it, there are thousands of ways to get there, and all end up with shining our bright light freely to the world.
One theory that I resonate with is that there is nothing to become, to just BE that which we already are (a light and love expression of the Divine). Something I often say is “be the light that you are and angels will applaud”.
So let’s explore this and why this may true for you. Let’s look to a great authority on the subject of “Just Being” (being what you are naturally).
No, we won’t be reading a book (not even mine), attending a seminar or consulting a Guru. We will be noticing Nature.
Nature reveals everything we need to know about Being Enlightened. For example, Have you ever seen a bird sit around all day down in the dumps?
A cat that can’t nap?
A dog that is depressed?
A wave stop to worry?
A tree that refused to grow?
A flower that hides it bloom?
Of course not! Everything in nature does what is was created to do by the Divine and without a lot effort or stress, I might add!
The Mind that created us knew s/he wanted us to be too, but in the “fall” we forgot. It’s ok, its part of the process of playing the game of Life, remembering who we truly are. The Divine Creator simply desires for you to reclaim your I Am presence, that indwelling spirit of All that Is.
Our opportunity here while on “earth school” is God-realization and to embody divine essence in the unique way that each of us was born to—being whole, wise, beautiful, undefended, radiant, trusting and faithful.
So no worries. Be happy. Be grateful. Be love. Then you will be enlightened.
