What is enlightenment?

There was a day a while back when I was grumpy and life wasn’t much fun. I was discouraged and negative. Then I went to lunch and saw an old friend. We hugged each other and I experienced a beautiful burst of love. All of a sudden, life was wonderful again. I was happy, alive, and very positive. Life was a joy and opportunity was everywhere.

Nothing changed in the realm of circumstances, but everything changed in me. One moment I was in the darkness and in the next moment, I was in the light.

When you are in the light, you feel good about yourself and good about life. You also have a very positive attitude. You are positive in your thinking and your actions. You then radiate this positive energy into your life and great things happen around you. This is the realm of love, joy, peace, happiness, and miracles.

The opposite state is one of fear, upset, and suffering. When you are in this state, you lose confidence and shut down inside. You walls of protection go up. You lose your ability to see clearly and become negative. You then radiate this negative energy into your life and negative things happen all around you. When you are in this state, you are living in the darkness.

We think that our inner state is determined by the world around us, but this is an illusion that will keep us struck forever. Our inner state is not determined by our circumstances. It is determined by how we relate to our circumstances. When you change how you relate to life, you change what happens around you.
It is possible to live in the light most of the time. This is enlightenment. It’s also the purpose of our work.

You have the ability to create a great life, but this won’t happen by itself. There are concepts to learn, issues to heal, and action to take. I can walk you through the steps.
