Is enlightenment a state of transformation?
The answer is yes: enlightenment does represent one possible state of transformation a person can strive towards. Understand countless paths in transformation exist, and enlightenment represents not necessarily a final goal but one destination of many in transformation.
People assume enlightenment is the final goal in transformation. The trouble is humans tend to get stuck in time. Enlightenment itself is a timeless state, and as such, it isn’t first nor last. It simply is one state of being, humans with awareness can exist within.
I find it amusing and odd both that people seek enlightenment as a form of transformation. Most personal transformation processes require a person to build up the potential to become something else. Enlightenment is based upon exactly the opposite process. To become enlightened is releasing your potential from one state of awareness into another.
Never seek enlightenment, rather release into it.
This is one reason why seekers can spend decades, even an entire lifetime, trying to find their enlightenment: they are using the wrong approach *** of seeking *** . Literally, enlightenment is an instantaneous process, of simply releasing oneself. Anyone proud about how long they have been seeking enlightenment has totally missed the boat… In fact, there is no boat at all to miss in the enlightenment process.
Which statement about enlightenment is correct.
- Enlightenment already happened! (Buddha , Jesus, Martin Luther King etc)
- Enlightenment is happening now! (You, right now merging into total truth)
- Enlightenment never happen nor will happen. (It’s a human folly.)
- Enlightenment is about to happen! (Any day now!)
- Enlightenment will happen in the future. ( Once all people truly embrace love…)
- Enlightenment will happened. (The wrong tense is purposeful.. think about it)
The answer: Does it matter?
Answering yes, or picking any answer at all, reflects the process of trying to know. The needing of an answer, or even trying to answer my question, in the end, is still a process of seeking.
