@Joseph Maynor Anything I write about enlightenment is just nonsense, in the end. The only people who would understand are the people who don't need it explained to them.

The day I realized Enlightenment had nothing to do with beliefs was a game-changer for me.  It’s hard to communicate this insight though.

Those beliefs are getting in the way of your Enlightenment ironically.  

Coming from a guy who often declares Enlightenment=Coral

such irony indeed

It's like the difference between explaining what the Sun looks like to someone who has lived their entire life underground, and taking them outside and showing them.

I know.  Enlightenment is a tricky thing.

I think you clearly misunderstand me.  That’s fine.  I’m not gonna argue with you.  You want to preserve your status quo.  It’s your dime.

I saw it a number of times where you preach that enlightenment is stage coral.

Please don't ask me to find it now xD

Wow!  Never said any of that.  Maybe there’s a stunt double for me floating around the Forum or something haha.  Let’s not make up facts ok.  I never said Enlightenment is Stage Coral.

I saw you passing through a stage where you were really trying to fit enlightenment in coral or some other SD stage

Read what I write very carefully.  I never said Enlightenment = Coral anywhere.  You posted a comparison I made between two models, the 10 Ox Pictures and Spiral Dynamics.  Now, keep in mind models have nothing to do with Enlightenment.  There’s theory and then there’s Enlightenment and they live apart.  You can talk all you want and some of that is fruitful, but what Enlightenment is has nothing to do with stories.

Honestly, if you are beyond Turquoise you wouldn't really have this defensive argument.

Really?  You go live that yourself and then come tell us how that works out for you.  That’s pretty presumptuous and idealistic.  If somebody misrepresents what I say, that’s an issue of fact that I can and will correct depending on how much I care to.

Because a turquoise person doesn't care about what people think of them. And they are way beyond survival.
