”Enlightenment is there just lighten up”
Language can only describe so much of what you can feel is true. It is this inherent fault that language has instead of feeling and visualizing abstract topics. Therefore, it can only be used as a tool for guidance. It can guide you towards experiencing the topics for yourself and embedding it into your character. Reading about things like love, courage, compassion and enlightenment is only stimulating your mind for things you deep down already know and are capable of experiencing. Many people find them self feeding their mind with spiritual and philosophical topics all their live without actually experiencing the topics they have read. You can understand things on a intellectual level, but that is only one part of the game. There is no such thing as reaching this place we call enlightenment. You cannot reach something that is already present. You can however hide yourself from experiencing and feeling enlightenment. This hiding can make you think that you are missing out on something that is seemingly not there. Being in that state of separation can cause a lot of anxiety and confusion. This is off course an illusion that is caused by your own separation of being whole. In order for fire to burn you need space with oxygen. In order for you to thrive in life you need to give yourself some space so that your inner fire can happen through you. You are literally stepping out of the way so that your inner flame can go its own way. This process means letting go of your ego and false belief systems that are restricting you in fully expressing that light within you. I have never seen a candle that is created in order to been hidden. The purpose of a candle is to shed light on things that are covered in darkness. Humans are not created to been hidden, humans are created to shed light on those that are covered in darkness. So be the inspiration you can be for others and stop hiding yourself from that awesome light you are.
