Enlightenment? What is even Enlightenment? Am I supposed to meet “God” when I’m Enlightened? Am I supposed to imagine figures of Light? Am I gonna be forever happy? When I’m Enlightened am I gonna be instantly rich? Rich in the way that it doesn’t involve materialistic objects, I actually don’t know I mean am I Enlightened? The Path of Enlightenment is just the process of getting to know ourselves, isn’t everyone experiencing this as well? I mean it’s even a paradox to know if you’re getting Enlightened or you’re just dragging your mind with all the fake emotions that you want to feel.
Why am I even talking about this? I’m not even Enlightened, or am I? I can’t really say much but somehow here’s what I’ve experienced on “trying” to be Enlightened, I thought Enlightenment was supposedly always being happy. No, this is the greatest misconception of walking the Path of Enlightenment. I mean you get to learn a lot “literally” but knowing these things it hurts, it freaking hurts so bad because when you get to see yourself as a whole, and when I say whole, it’s not just the good sides of you, but you get to acknowledge even the bad sides of you. The parts of you that becomes the Shadow, the unacknowledged, disregarded experiences of yourself, the experiences that made you “you”. It’s about getting to know yourself more just like Renee Descartes said cogito ergo sum “Know Thyself”, it’s like going beyond the Hierarchy of Needs and transcending and perfecting the Pyramid. It’s about giving time to observe rather than just being passively aggressive. It’s about being mindful of your own thoughts. It’s about acknowledging that every moment we always have a decision to make. It’s about recreating your perspectives and seeing yourself from a different Light. Are you willing to see beyond your usual perspective?
The process itself will burn you off your own Illusions. You cannot fake yourself, one way or another the Shadow will find its way to be known. Haven’t we all had enough fooling of ourselves?
This is just but a few of things that I could say about the Enlightenment, are you ready to know yourself a little bit deeper? Do you have the strength and will to accept who you really are? Enlightenment is like a rabbit hole, you just never know how deep it could get.
Correct me if I’m wrong, this is just what I feel, so feel free to comment.
