mystery behind enlightenment
Before I started world travel back in January, my brother told me to visit Rishikesh, India. He told me to visit Rishikesh since he thought that me being very spiritual, I would really love to be there.
Taking his words of wisdom, I started my trip from Rishikesh.As soon I entered holy city of Rishikesh, I felt very much vibrant. I felt that this city was full of positive vibrations.
Slowly I started interacting with lot of wonderful people who came from all over the world. One thing I found common in everybody was that they were in search of something mystic, something unknown. Most of them were in search of enlightenment.
Somehow the fact that people came to Rishikesh for enlightenment put me in the state of shock to some extent. I was surprised that people desire of something which is completely unknown to them.
I wish I could explain all those wonderful people that Enlightenment is not a desire or a goal to attain, but it is a state of human awareness. I wish I could explain them that they are already enlightened.
The misery with Human is that he is unaware of the fact that human is born enlightened. He has just forgotten this fact.
Enlightenment is not a thing, which someone could get at a particular place, but it is recognition of human’s own state by increasing level of awareness. Enlightenment has nothing to do with reading holy books or following any spiritual gurus or following any religion, but it is all about reading mind.
Only when human reads his own mind, He could shift awareness to highest levels. Only at highest level of awareness one could experience divine consciousness.
Even though I knew that It was ignorance of people who were trying to get enlightened by visiting Rishikesh,I still respected them for the fact that at least they were desiring for something eternal rather than mundane.
But I am really hopeful that all those wonderful people who were seeking enlightenment would realize that desire of enlightenment is the biggest obstacle to enlightenment. I hope that they would understand that nobody except their own self is capable to enlighten them in the entire universe.
