There is so much written about this subject, which includes a multitude of definitions. However, it is important that we attempt our version, so that you know where we are coming from.
Enlightenment as we define it is as follows:
It is a State of Being that can only be described as Oneness.
Note, it is not a State of Awareness, which would require a separation between the observer and that that they were aware of!
The Oneness is not Light. It has no shape or limits. It is not a vibration or Sound. There is no movement or change and therefore no time.
The Oneness simply Is!
A person attains Enlightenment and merges with the Oneness like a drop of water merging with the ocean. At that point, they completely lose their identity and sense of small self.
Having attained Enlightenment, while in a physical body, the person has to return to live their life, albeit from a completely new perspective. Some people have managed to return to the Oneness, but this is rare.
When you climb a mountain and take in the view from the summit the route by which you got there is irrelevant. What matters is that you made it and had the experience. If you later decide to become a Sherpa and guide others, then of course your knowledge of a particular route might be useful.
Climbing that mountain will give you the ultimate perspective of the World and change your life forever. You will know the Truth and how simple and beautiful it is. You will be aware of why people act in the ways they do and have more compassion, sympathy and above all Love.
There are no requirements in Enlightenment but afterwards many people will look outwards and want to help their fellow man and the Planet we share. They may also want to guide others towards the “peaks” and the ultimate “summit.”
If you feel you want to make the “climb”, do get in touch with us through the Contact Page and we will do our best to answer your questions and offer guidance.
We are here to serve: “It is only the giving that makes you what you are.”
