In this video, I talk about enlightenment, some of my insights about it, and how I find it amusing how some regard it is as some unreachable thing. In the video, I say that saying you have become enlightened in some circles is like saying you are the Christ in a Catholic church. They will soon put you under a microscope and see if you have found “true” enlightenment.
There may be a good reason for this. There have been people in the past that have used this word to wield power over people. But here I am taking the word down from its pedestal. After I have achieved enlightenment I realized it was not what I was truly looking for, it didn’t really feel like an achievement but a “well yeah” moment. It was only till I integrated it and starting seeing myself like God/Source/Love does did I find what I was looking for. And from that point, I can expand into infinite realms of light.
So, what are the signs you are enlightened? Well, that question is more how much do you embody your realization. And that can really depend on who you are. But I think a certain point you don’t have anything to defend, you do not act of insecurity, and you are loving towards all. I think is a sign of a fully integrated enlightenment. Doesn’t matter what you say but the vibes you give off.
Now, does this really matter? I don’t think so. You are not less than if you are not enlightened. Most of us already have a very awake mind but we must integrate our hearts though. I believe that is what the spiritual journey is becoming more about. The person is of the divine, the ego is of the divine, so there is no need to try to kill it (or anything in that manner).
Once you do reach the ultimate state you will no longer need a teacher. You will love yourself totally. You will know everything out words. You will feel all places at once and see yourself in everything and everyone. You will become the room you are sitting in. You will feel as though you are sitting in the center of infinity. You will feel like you have always been here and you will always be here. Love will just be the only thing that can ground you at that point.
