No one can tell us what enlightenment is. It only has the meaning we give it. No one can tell us the path to enlightenment, because there is no path. Our experience of enlightenment is unique to each of us. It is what we want it to be.

It cannot be taught. It is fruitless to seek to acquire knowledge to achieve it. It cannot be achieved.
Only by surrendering our thoughts, judgments and beliefs can it be experienced. It is our natural state. We can recognize it by stripping things away, not by adding any teachings or belief systems.

We experience the Eternal by recognizing that it is what we are. We recognize it by surrendering and allowing. Let's surrender to the Eternal. It is our true selves. The rest is an illusion.

How do we know the difference between inspiration, which is derived from Source, and thoughts that come from the conditioned mind?

Thoughts and action inspired by Source are accompanied by feelings of calm and peace. When we act in accordance with our conditioned programming, we will eventually feel frustrated and unfulfilled. The more conscious we become, the easier it is to discriminate between Inspiration and unconscious conditioned desires.

Until we know the difference intuitively, we may have to follow our impulses regardless of where they are coming from. For example, we may have an impulse to buy a flash car. As much as we may enjoy it, it can never make us feel fulfilled. If we identify with our possessions, they will reflect back to us the insecurities which compel us to feel important in the eyes of others. We need to seem important because we feel unimportant.

If we feel peaceful while following an impulse and the action promotes understanding for all concerned, our impulse is inspired.

If we allow Divine Inspiration to guide us in all our activities by surrendering to what is, everyone involved will benefit from our actions (although they may not realize it at the time), and we become a fundamental part of human evolution.

We cannot make ourselves whole by adding things on to ourselves, such as obtaining material possessions, knowledge, beliefs, etc.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with having things which make us comfortable or learning things. However, we will become disappointed if we think that additional things will make us fulfilled, or when we identify ourselves with our labels, friends or possessions (e.g., "I am a Mercedes owner," "I am President of a company." "I wear the latest fashions," "I am accomplished at this or that.").

We can experience fulfillment by releasing our identification with things. We can feel connected to the Source by dropping the labels that define us. The less we know the wiser we become.
Let's strip away all of our labels and identifications, and become what we truly are: Peace, love and joy.
