This morning I was feeling what Enlightenment means to me. In the past, I felt it as a goal or achievement. A state free from the suffering I was in. I focused on the Mind as the causation of my depression and anxiety. I meditated daily, went for long hikes in nature, and read many books.
Yet, in the formidable background, there was a voice that wouldn’t go away. An ache that made me feel everything I was ‘doing’ was a cover-up. A smoke-screen from really doing the one thing I was avoiding, and that was ‘feeling’. All the books, hikes, and words could not subvert the feeling.
After going into the emotional body for the past 8 years (not everyday, mind you), I have realized Enlightenment to mean something else at the moment. For me the key word is ‘Lighten’. To make, or be, less heavy. That is rooted in the Heart.
The Heart holds the Akashic Record of our wounded and sacred humanity. We can use the Mind to take us to the places we got hurt, got rejected, experienced the trauma of ‘not-love’. It is there we can offer the salve of Love to help heal, release, and transmute the pain, the experience of separation back into the Lightness of Being.
…The Lightness Of Being. Yeah. That is what Enlightenment means to me at the moment. The freedom to Be. To Express. To Create. To Partake and Enjoy. It is from this enLIGHTENed place that I can best feel and serve the ‘cries of the world’. The Darkness that needs us to be grounded in this Lightness of Being so we don’t go down with it, but lift it up and out of the Shadow, both individually and collectively.
I am now more free to explore more of my mental and spiritual enlightenment without it bypassing the emotional body. As long as I am human there is more ‘work’ to do, but now it is rooted in more joy and essence. That is what I have really been seeking this life. Maybe that is what you have been really seeking as well.
If so, please feel into a free Consultation Call to see how this process may resonate with you. I would be honored to serve and explore this emotional and spiritual enlightenment process with you. Visit soulfullheart.org/sessions for more info.
