Enlightenment: Is it possible to attain?
We get plenty of thoughts. Everybody does.We get various kinds of thoughts-about money,our families,our future etc etc etc.We sometimes get happy thoughts sometimes sad sometimes boring but dont we associate these thoughts with our identity.we get attached to these thoughts so much that we never realize who we really are.
When we were born we percieved things through our senses.Our senses were free from the mind thats why we were in joy.Now when we see a thing we can't see it without the mind interfering.So the mind has taken over our senses.So what can be done?The answer is self-realization and becoming enlightened.Now it's impossible to become enlightened unless the state of enlightenment has been given to you.One cannot attain enlightenment,It has to be given to a person to make him enlightenened.
Gautam buddha,jesus,prophet muhammad were all enlightened beings.We cannot attain the state that these godmen had.They had realized god at some point of their lives.So what should be done?
It' a fact that people of the world are getting enlightenened,how?The answer is that the avatars(One who has descended from the universe for a particular cause) of enlightenment are walking on this earth giving enlightenment to people like you and me.Now what are the benefits of enlightenment?
When you were born did u ever ask this question why you are alive?Who is asking this question?The mind.So enlightenment is the natural state the body should exist in nature as it was supposed to be.When the senses are free from the mind and you act through divine consciousness.This divinity only god can give.So Being enlightened is getting limitless love,joy and oneness with nature.
