Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier.
Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense.
It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true. –Adyashanti
Its so true, Many people think i perhaps have the better than thou attitude on my path to enlightenment, or im way out there with some of my thinking… but seriously the path is as much darkness as it is lightness. There are so many moments when I have fallen apart, from losing friendships to losing your connection with family members because they don’t understand you anymore to experiencing all the confusion that comes with cracking open and I have experienced the deep pain of many things that I discovered was no longer true so I could awaken further…and I have had to and continue to piece myself back together in a way that is really and truly only to serve others.
Enlightenment has nothing to do with seeing the craziness around you, it has everything to do with the craziness IN YOU.
