Every once in a while I head to the internet with the sole purpose of checking out what information people are putting out there in regards to spiritual enlightenment and waking up. I last did this about a week ago and the trend I found has stuck with me since then so I figured it was time to write about it so I could be done with it and move on.
The trend basically included this: “If a person says they are enlightened then they are not enlightened.”, and/or ” If someone says that everyone is already enlightened but they just don’t realize it yet then that person is not enlightened”. <sigh>
If you are traveling around the web and find these statements forget about them because once you get hung up on wording like this you’ve only hindered your own eyesight. Words are incredibly insufficient in describing the truth, in fact, they can’t describe the truth. It’s impossible. Even the word enlightenment is a poor substitute for the real thing.
So don’t get hung up on how something is worded. Forget about it. Wake up yourself…then it’s incredibly easy to tell whose got their eyes open and whose still sleeping.
