Enlightenment is a state of awareness. It’s an experience of being aware of nothing by the existence of awareness itself. As a result the mind becomes silent and devoid of thought. There is also no feeling, and in a sense reality disappears from awareness. All that’s left is a void of nothingness.
Through the process of enlightenment you come to the realization that your existence does not depend on anything but awareness itself. It is after all this awareness that sits at the core of your being. As a result the fears, worries and concerns that held you back are no longer of significance because your awareness goes beyond the depths of your daily problems. In fact, none of your limiting emotions affect you because experience merely flows through awareness. And of course the resulting feeling is one of peace, calmness and serenity.
The path to enlightenment is a journey that takes you to the core of who you are at a spiritual level. It is a consciousness that exists beyond space and time. In fact, it is your true state of being that is connected to “everything that is” including Infinite Intelligence. The path to enlightenment helps you to tap into your spiritual consciousness and thereby experience yourself at the purest level of awareness.
