De-mystifying Enlightenment!

Enlightenment is Overrated: Jonathan is not afraid to admit that he has “reached” Enlightenment. He is passionate about bringing "clarity", especially to enlightenment.

Read it all here.

In his opinion:

The great Enlightened masters
(Christ, Buddha, Moses, Lao Tzu, and many others),
did not become Enlightened and retreat into a cave.
They did not merely transcend their egos.
They became great big egos.
They engaged life completely and fearlessly
shook the earth from its very foundation.
They did not seek Enlightenment
as an escape from life,
but as a means to live more completely.


In reality, enlightenment brings you into a deeper,
more intimate relationship with life.
Rather, Enlightenment means
dropping into your body more completely.
It means living life more fully, passionately and fearlessly.

So, are you enlightened? If yes, do you agree?

I am not enlightened, but i agree with the statement.
Enlightenment makes one more sensitive, aware and present in the moment.

whole life is a relationship.
enlightenment is not the end of journey but a beginning of a aware and fulfilled life
