enlightenment


Wisedom is at the core of spiritual enlightenmentWhat is enlightenment? the act of enlightening is defined as "the act of enlightening or casting light where there was darkness". Spiritual Enlightenment is pretty much what all spiritual studies strive for. It is the hope of anyone studying the topics within spiritandsky to come to this stage of being. Imagine understanding life, the universe and everything? It is not likely anyone of us will achieve "total" spiritual enlightenment in our lifetimes, but many have and will at least gain partial enlightenment.

This is such a universal subject it would be hard to put it into a can and give it a label. Mystics, theologians even religious fundamentalists all have people within their ranks that claim to have, or can give spiritual enlightenment. The bottom line is this; If you learn something deep, profound and true, and it sinks into your heart and becomes a part of you, then you have achieved, to at least a certain degree, enlightenment.

All religions seem to have a claim on enlightenment. But can they all be right? Most people would say no, but if you look at the basic core teachings of most mainstream religions you will find basic similarities. Things like "do unto others as you would have done unto you". Don't steal, kill or desire another's property.. But is this "spiritual enlightenment"? Not really, even though it sheds light on how we should live our lives, or to feel better about ourselves, and care for our fellow people, it really sheds little light on what "really" happens after we die, and what happened to those already past.

Many people attempt to directly achieve enlightenment through meditation, fasting, prayer, even occult means. Though many have tried, and many may have succeeded in gaining this knowledge, there exists today no one single definitive source of spiritual enlightenment (very religious people will, of course, disagree...), it is up to you, only you can find this path, and ultimately you must do it on your own. To give you an idea of how diverse the people on this planet are that seek spiritual enlightenment, here is a quote from noted scientist Albert Einstein:

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

- Albert Einstein
