I didn’t. But I am told I am already enlightened, which puts my mind in a bit of a twist. (Yes, by the way, everyone can do this.) So, if I’m already enlightened, then the whole thing shifts – I only have to get to experience the enlightenment!
Wow! This is getting interesting! Have I ever experienced anything even slightly resembling enlightenment?! Ever experienced completeness, peace of mind, clarity, calm, joy, absence of fear, absence of “Yes, but…?” questioning, seen the suchness of a flower, had a moment of actual self knowledge? Anything like this? At all? Ever?
And, I haven’t done a survey, but I believe every last one of you has, too.
I’m on the lookout, now, today, for flashes of light, of lightness – “The incredible lightness of Being”, as Milan Kundera called it. This blog is all about these meditative moments which allow access, albeit momentary, to our true state.
