ENLIGHTENMENT: THE OTHER SIDE

So you want to get enlightened?

Why?

Have you ever asked yourself this question?

What are you going to get from enlightenment that you don't have already?

Here's what you're not going to get from enlightenment:

1) More money (unless you parade "your enlightenment" to people who don't have a clue what enlightenment is and believe they can get some from you by paying for it).

2) A better life

3) Powers over the world.

Here's why you're not going to get those things from being enlightened:

1) It's not about that
2) It's not about that
3) It's not about that

Then what is enlightenment about?

It's about waking up from your dreams of (1), (2), and (3) and all the rest of the world that you are taking as yourself.

It's about waking up from the dream and not about accumulating more in the dream.

It's about waking up from the dream and not about becoming a better person in the dream.

It's about waking up from the dream and not about changing any particular aspect of the dream.

IT'S ABOUT WAKING UP PERIOD! AND THAT DOESN'T CHANGE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO CHANGE BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT WAKING UP FROM THE ONE THAT WANTS TO CHANGE THINGS TO THE ONE IN WHICH ALL IS HAPPENING.

IT'S ABOUT WAKING UP FROM BEING A CHARACTER, TO REALIZING THAT YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WHOLE SHOW.

IT'S NOT ABOUT ADDING ANYTHING TO YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU CAN'T BE ADDED TO.

IT'S NOT ABOUT GAINING POWER OVER ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF YOU BECAUSE THERE IS NO THING OUTSIDE OF YOU.

ENLIGHTENMENT IN THE SIMPLEST OF TERMS IS SIMPLY REALIZING THAT YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD AND NOT JUST A CHARACTER IN IT.
