The word “enlightenment” is often used to describe higher states of consciousness and spiritual awareness that involve blissful experiences. Unfortunately, words alone can’t truly describe what enlightenment is because it goes beyond words. To truly understand what enlightenment is, you will need to experience it. As human beings, we still have a long way to go before we can experience the true states of enlightenment. Because of this, we will need to rely on words along with certain experiences to help us understand what enlightenment is.

One thing I have noticed about a lot of people is that they like to value pride more than self-respect. Both of these qualities are great to have. However, people with a lot of pride tend to allow their ego to influence their thoughts. The ego is a part of our personalities that has lost a great portion of its connection with our higher self and other portions of our mind. This sense of separation gives the ego a false sense of finite life and therefore it creates a false sense of fear and the need to consume whatever it can to survive. For these reasons, if the ego needs to, it will lie and deceive our mind, so that it can stay in control. This is why when you meet people with a lot of pride, they tend to have a big ego.
Have you ever wondered why we are afraid of the dark? We are afraid of the dark, because we have been conditioned at an early age to be fearful of the blackness of space. When babies are born, they do not fear the absent of light, because their mind is not polluted with biased thoughts. Society conditions us to fear the dark through the media, movies and subliminal messages.
To understand the inspirational quote below, you need to understand what the human soul is. The human soul is multidimensional in nature. It is the spiritual anatomy that holds our identities, memories and individuality. For the soul to function properly in a physical body, it needs the spirit.
Life is something we experience everyday, but yet most of us do not understand what it is. Our society has conditioned us to believe that life is something that is made of organic material that breathe, reproduce and grow, such as an organism. This definition of life is not very accurate. The quote below will give you a better idea of what life is and help you understand that the essence of life lies inside everything, even in the fabric of empty space.
Most people have a hard time finding happiness, because they are searching for it in the wrong places. Since the day we were born, society has conditioned us to seek for material things, such as money and luxuries, to fulfill certain desires inside us. Material things are necessary to help us evolve, but when we become too obsessed with them, they destroy our connection to the Infinite Love of Nature. This Infinite Love is what gives us life and joy. This is why most people who have achieved that state of being rich are miserable, because they have spent too much time and energy seeking for material things.
I thought of this inspiring quote during a picnic on a rainy day. I dared one of my friends to run across the parking lot and back while it was raining like crazy. She accepted the challenge and ran across the parking lot barefooted. On the way back she slipped and fell on her butt. Luckily, she was not hurt. This event instantly stimulated my mind to think of this quote.
