What is enlightenment? — 1 Comment

  1. I like the idea that we are all ignorant. We are just ignorant about different things. Maybe some people can have a glimpse of a different reality through one of a variety of means, but to live as a human we still have to come back down to earth so to speak and be able to put the garbage out and commute.

    I don’t think striving and enlightenment have anything to do with each other. My sense is not striving and being present is about as good as it gets. This of course is easier said than done. Most of us immediately get stuck into a state of boredom if we try to slow down and just be. But even if you can be present, or a experience a greater awareness of Being, it is a tough act to keep up.
