Enlightenment is the ultimate purpose of life and the next step in the evolution of consciousness. It is living the total range of life, from individuality to universality. It is being what You really are and living Life as it really is -- the way it was meant to be lived.
Enlightenment is not an attitude, mood or belief. It is not a state of mind, an emotion, a perception, or a temporary experience. It is being pure Awareness, Pure Consciousness -- what you have been all along, but have not been awake to.
Pure Consciousness is your innermost sense of Being. It is the source and observer of your mind, your emotions, your perceptions and all your experience of life in the world. It is the silent Awareness that is aware of your eyes reading these words right now -- aware of your mind thinking, your intellect discriminating, your senses perceiving, and your emotions feeling as they process and react to these words. All experiences that are happening to you and around you now and at all times are happening within that timeless, silent pure Awareness of your innermost Self.
Pure Consciousness is the same inner Being of everyone and it is the ultimate essence of everything. Enlightenment is being and acting from that level of Pure Consciousness at all times. It is a state of permanent Peace, Freedom and Joy. It is the end of all suffering. It is what you have been searching for all your life.
