Instant Enlightenment.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

Is enlightenment instant, it comes in waves or both? Thank you for your time!

Response:

Real enlightenment is awakening to the reality that our true self is not limited like the mind and body. And if the person pursues an interest in spiritual knowledge and practices, then self-realization is usually gradual, smooth and unremarkable. But occasionally the external signs of awakening can be dramatic and brief. Those dramatic experiences are often how we think of enlightenment because they make such memorable stories. Life quickly turns from misery to bliss or switches from dark depression to the celestial vision of saints and angels.  But all these colorful experiences are due to the mind and body making adjustments to align themselves to the awakened presence of pure awareness. However, the actuality of enlightenment is only pure consciousness knowing itself, not the mental and physical adjustments happening on the periphery. That is why some people will have intense experiences or feelings and others whose mind/body connection to consciousness is more open will make that transition more smoothly.

Love,

Deepak

    All about surrender, nor fearing what is and experiencing at the moment being so foreign. The more you fear, when you are at the threshold, you will repeat it until you surrender control. I do not know why, just that when it presence appears , feel it without fear and doubt. You are not obligated, but you know that it is.
