I personally know 5 or 6 people who are enlightened. From an historical perspective, this is astounding. Millions of people worldwide are awakening. The 5 or 6 people I know are superficially not similar at all. Some are men. Some are women. Some live in the country. Some live in the city. Some meditate. Some do not. Some are wealthy. Some have very little money or material possessions. Some are white. Some are black. They have diffent likes and dislikes. However, they do share some of the same characteristics.
They do not fear becoming ill.
They do not fear death.
They do not fear for their personal safety.
They do not get irritated or frustrated when we interrupt them when they are speaking.
They are indifferent as to whether we like them or not.
They are indifferent as to what we think of them.
They have no neuroses.
They have great senses of humor.
They do not have any hidden agendas.
They live transparently.
When they listen, they listen. They are not thinking.
They do not become angry at real or imagined slights.
Their ego cannot be bruised.
They do not care whether we think they are enlightened or not.
They are charismatic.
We feel better when we are in their presence.
They know who they are.
They are one with who they are.
It is time to awaken now.
