Enlightenment Isn’t Unattainable
We might think that enlightenment is something they do over there, or back in the days of yore. 🙂 Something really special, with special powers…
Well, we’ve all heard the stories!
But what if it isn’t that miraculous?
What if we are already enlightened,
but didn’t notice or ignored it?
This is the simple conclusion, unless someone can actually show us something different.
Maintaining the mystery merely makes enlightenment a secret, and collects followers who like a good story. Enlightenment is the realisation of our true reality, which is pure awareness; just cognisant consciousness with absolutely no elaborations.
Living a life, satisfied with knowing what we are within all this befuddlement, is liberating. Whether there is an afterlife or not, we are making the most out of this life, seeing the befuddlement as an empty illusion for the entertainment of others.
Maybe seeking enlightenment is also an illusion.
We should be seeking whatever distracts us,
obscuring the emptiness of enlightenment.
We are all enlightened.
The level of enlightenment
depends on the constant presence of pure awareness as illusions arise.
