Enlightenment is Ecstasy
Anyone can experience enlightenment through a consistent meditation practice. It does not require a change in diet or years of practice as some have advocated. Enlightenment is actually quite simple. It rises up through you from the silence within.
The ecstasy that comes with experience leads to mental blockages if we attach to it. For it’s through the attachment that limits our future experiences. It’s like trying to contain or control love. Once we do that we stop the infinite expansion of what it is. By embracing love fully we see the freedom within it. When we attempt to contain or control it, we experience pain. The minute we release that control and fully let go, the pain dissipates and we feel the peace in the experience of it.
Enlightenment comes to us in a very similar fashion for it’s not to be contained or controlled. It’s more of a daily commitment to embracing ‘what is’ without seeking or attaching, through a never-ending process of letting go. In doing this we welcome it in as easily as we release it.
Enlightenment, infinite expansion…
Enlightenment is an infinitely expanding experience that changes with our state of consciousness. Therefore our experiences continue to expand and change as we drift through the various states. If we become fixated on a past experience we limit our ability to expand beyond it. By letting go of the previous experience we open ourselves up to something new and more expansive each time.
This experience is all within and does not favor one person over another. Any sort of boasting only brings you back into the ego, the mind of limitations. Any limiting beliefs we have also hinder our experiences. Thus the importance of beginning with a quiet mind, by letting go of all our thoughts we naturally invite in. When it leaves, let it go peacefully and when you’re ready welcome it back for another experience.
Enlightenment is ecstasy and has the ability to completely transform and heal us if we allow it.
Until next time,
