Don’t let anyone tell you that enlightenment is a difficult thing to achieve.

Don’t believe that you need to sit still every day for an hour for ten years straight or that you need a guru or Zen master to beat you with a stick whilst reciting weird Koans.

There is a mystery and allure to enlightenment that is pure bullshit. It is one of the most monopolised concepts out there and no one can even agree on what it is and what it means.

Everyone has their own idea, including me but I also know it is something you can learn for yourself and quickly. Whoever you are, there are only a few basic requirements.

  1. You have to want to experience it
  2. You have to believe that you can.
  3. You must understand that it is a never-ending process of further understanding.

There is no mystical state that once you arrive at you are there forever, in reality, that is a delusion.

There is no secret knowledge that only a few know and that can be yours if you earn it or sacrifice your dignity to receive it. No sir, that is called control and manipulation. The chief strategy of religions and spiritual systems since time immemorial.

There may be common truths and universal ideas that are beautiful and thread through all of our histories and culture, but this is not enlightenment.

Enlightenment is not the same thing for all people. It is a personal understanding of who you are and what the world is. It is always subjective, never an objective truth. Your truth and not necessarily other people's.

If someone tells you there is only one truth and one path run a mile. They are either stupid or malevolent.

It cannot be described in words very well nor can it be rationally explained to someone. It is something you need to find out for yourself.

There is a way to get a taste quickly, but beware, once embarked upon, your life will begin to change and you may never be able to go back to who you were.
