More than just the simple belief that divinity lies within all life equally, it is the personal experience of this. It is feeling this spirit that dwells in all life,"oneness", that turns this belief into a personal knowing.
Your inner state of being that was present as young a child but lost around the age of 2 or 3. This inner quality found joy from within, laughed endlessly, and had wondered in awe of the world.... no worries or burden carried around as a result of the passage of time…enlightenment, the experience can be measured by the depth and degree of inner peace.

Name tag for the state in which the conceptual process separating experience into different bodies is extinguished. Viewpoint in which the usual plural differentiation between such things as here and there and self and other and mind and body and observer and observed has ceased to exist. State called oneness which is such that, for example, the sense organ which hears and that which is heard are no longer experienced as two seperate things.

I do not recommend doing drugs to facilitate this experience as even if you do the state will be temporary alongside the effects of the drugs, but the associated damage done and your confused state might be prolonged. Harmlessness amidst a normal experience is a better motivator than the rush for a superior experience.
I think therefore I am not one of enlightenment.
I see it therefore I am not yet one of enlightenment.
I experience it therefore I am not yet one of enlightenment.
My mind projects an invisible shell around me which seperates me from my environment therefore I cannot, as much as I would wish it, be yet enlightened.
Your experience is a puppet and you only are always pulling the strings.

The process of becoming unburdened, especially in reference to bodily waste; a euphemism for taking a shit.
"'ve been in the bathroom for a long time..."
"Fuck you mom, I'm becoming enlightened!"

Nirvana is the state of enlightenment reached after expelling all nuggets of waste from your body.

The act of separating your ego from your self and becoming pure awareness.

This is what enlightenment is all about, not that fake woke bullshit everyone's been spitting these days.
If you ever use enlightenment in a sentence to represent yourself. You need to take that ego down a notch bob.

1.a philosophical movement is 18th century Europe. Its most famous writer was the political theorist John Locke, whos writings influenced Jefferson and Franklin in their Revolutionary ideas. The enlightenemnt stressed that human beings should rely on God's gift to them, logic, and that theur world was very mechanical. Goes well with deism.
