I have become enlightened about enlightenment. No, I haven't become an enlightened individual. I have only become enlightened about enlightenment and I have tried to capture that in the following paragraph!

Enlightenment is not about seeing new things. It is not even about seeing things from a new perspective. Enlightenment is about seeing things the way they really are! In that sense enlightenment is akin to spiritual rebirth (being born again)- being able to see the word without the distortions that we had acquired during our lives. It is simply a return to the original natural condition of the human mind - our 'everyday mind' and 'being without the angst of becoming'! Yes, it is also like waking up from a dream!
