Enlightenment thinkers are people consciously participating in the human story and choosing to dream a new dream. Aware of the subjectivity of their perception, and empowered by the flexibility that that creates, they recognize that their experience of “reality” is a choice. They see “heaven on earth” and a utopic planet is an attainable goal and are consciously participating in its creation. For an enlightenment thinker the right path is obvious and the only one we are on, because all paths lead to the same destination. And while they may forget sometimes, in their heart they know that everything happening is an expression of unconditional love and Divine Oneness.
Unconditional love, compassion, honesty, integrity, empathy, forgiveness, presence, gratitude, joy, passion, happiness, creativity, caring, awareness and consciousness, fairness, and embodying the spirit of great leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, and Gyatso are not things we do, but who we ARE. Surrendering and embracing emptiness, the whole Universe is open to us.
“The sage becomes nothing, and gains everything. Not displaying himself, he shines forth. Not promoting himself, he is distinguished. Not claiming reward, he gains endless merit. Not seeking glory, his glory endures. He knows to follow, so he is given command. He does not compete, so no one competes with him.” ~ Buddhist Saying ~
The enlightenment thinkers fear nothing, except the failure to experience their true nature as they seek the full depth of The Human Experience, and forgive their distractions. For the enlightenment thinker, the joy is simply being, not being this or that.
