I experienced enlightenment today

23 posts in this topic

I was watching Leo's 'spiritual enlightenment - the most shocking truth' and it actually hit home this time. There is no anger or sadness. Instead there is a comfort in knowing that there is no 'me'. I can finally relax, or should I say 'there is relaxation'. All my 'problems' stemmed from a mind-made construction. 

I'm sure the ego will come back to haunt me in various guises, but I have at least had a glimpse of 'no-thingness' and even as my fingers type this, there is no 'me' controlling the input. 

It's such a simple and obvious, yet profound truth. And I actually experienced it today. Pretty cool. ?

You talk about it as in it's in the past, but you just said that as of now no one is writting. ?


Spirituality is not the renunciation of life

It is the art of living fully

There has to be reference to past and future in temporal existence.

I'm was not trying to be a smartass, I was asking if it was gone or not,
Your post is confusing about this.

You talk about it like it was a one off type deal, isn't enlightenment supposed to last until the body dies? I mean congrats on having that experience, that sound fucking awesome, but do you truly think you've become fully enlightened?

Like I said, the ego will come back to haunt me, but yes I have had an enlightening experience thanks to Leo's video and the insight I have gained will not leave me. I will still wake up in the morning with an ego that is worried about what people think of it etc. but I can now see it for what it is. :)

I've been doing mindfulness classes led by a Buddhist monk, meditating every day for 7 months, and spending a hell of a lot of time on my own. In addition to that, I've been eating healthy, exercising and avoiding addictions. :)

Jealousy, the shadow of greed, that is.

That is not enlightenment. 

The realization of how reality works are just the first steps into the awakening.

I would be jealous if he had 1 million in the bank that's true. Sue me. I want to live an abundant life. I am not jealous of delusions
