What is enlightenment?

As we all know the definition of enlightenment refers to the state of been enlightened. Therefore in my understanding of enlightenments to each individual could be completely different, is a change in state is irrelevant to the truth.

It bases on ones stage of life, experiences, desires etc. Be able to realize that this consciousness is prior to any idea, image, term, or belief.

Why Its An Individual Thing

To me, enlightenment starts with a sudden awakening from one of my healing processes of a chaos incident in my life. When I was hurting badly and was desperately seeking for remedies to heal, the universe sent me “a message” to pick up a yoga practice.

Of course I didn’t realize that was a message from my higher self or divine, at the time. But because I was desperate, and I needed to heal so badly, I had to find the truth of why? I don’t want to make the same mistakes again.

Its An Ongoing Process

When I started practising yoga, that was the moment that enlightenment began.

It is somehow a life time practice once you have touch a base of it, it continuously endlessly extents, expands.  It does not matter where you go Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, Vancouver, this awareness helps you to dig more into depth of your truth your real you and gives tremendously force to open your heart to embrace whatever situation happens in life. To accept others’ behaviours no matter how flawed. Acceptance, forgiveness, letting go become your prior focus in life, in that state of mind all of sudden life is easier and happier.

As you can see to me enlightenment is more of a spiritual awaken reflection. Paradoxically, enlightenment to each of us must be different; it is defined as being advanced and having gained necessary information or knowledge, especially spiritual knowledge.

More or less to some of us is could be learned of something at their stage of life that is important to them benefit for their growth at the moment, which would still refers as being enlightened moments to them.

the unknown conciousness of oue mind
The Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, was a philosophical movement that took place primarily in Europe and, later, in North America, during the late 17thand early 18thcentury.

Its participants thought they were illuminating human intellect and culture after the “dark” middle Age. From here you can see being enlightened isn’t something necessarily only happens for individuals. We are the species of a social kind of animals whom had very short history in this planet. We will need plenty of time, massive amount of mistakes making in order to learn to reorganize to heal and to rebuild. Thus enlightenments will be happening in our society as one repeatedly essential action and movement.

In Sum

Personally, enlightenment at this moment is a light shining in front me that leading me to understand the purpose of my existence. It reminds me to respect others meanwhile to accept anything everything take as it is. Focus is to stay at present with ease.
