Spiritual enlightenment happens when you are in a state of no-mind, where the mind is so calm and at ease that it seems to disappear... and only the witness remains. When your mind has completely let go of this world, and is completely non-attached to everything in it from a place of love, peace and compassion, then and only then are you truly free. The mind is our greatest cause of suffering, and is what allows us to be liberated from it. It is the great mechanism we need to transcend all "thinking" and discover the awesome natural state of bliss within.
Secondly, know that each experience you have in life is the "right" experience . Every lesson you are here to learn is being provided to you through each life experience. Remember, nothing is by chance. The Universe is constantly giving you all the consciousness you need to embrace each experience and each experience is designed to awaken, enlighten and empower you. When your interpretation of each experience includes the knowing that there IS a divine energy who loves and accepts you just as you are, you can never have a "bad" experience. The Universe is an infinitely intelligent and conscious energy which is always supporting you to awaken into your greatest potentiality.
If a certain problem or issue keeps arising in you and will not go away, sit with it. Face it directly and ask yourself, "What is the exact issue I would like more clarity and understanding about?" Write it down and voice it out loud. Find out what this issue sound like and talk with this "other" voice inside you who is creating this issue. Listen. Pay attention to what is underneath the mental chatter happening in your head. It is pointing you towards the divine answer. Follow it with curiosity and let it show you the way through. Each issue in your life repeats itself because it is unlearned and ignored. Once you pay attention to the wake up call by realizing the infinite being you really are, your problems will dissolve immediately and spiritual enlightenment presents itself as your natural state of being!
Spiritual Enlightenment is a state of pure awareness that is free from the chattering mind and connected with the infinite all loving powerful Source. In this enlightened state, the world is absolutely perfect as it is. You feel, see, and experience the divine order in everything. There is a great warm love in your heart all the time and every action in your life becomes very very easy because your essence is always at ease.
The awesome state of Spiritual Enlightenment occurs naturally when we deepen in our sadana (spiritual practice) and are consistent with it. A constant focus towards the unlimited source of love, consciousness and power creates a more enlightened, empowered, loving state of being in you. When you have raised your vibration enough, your mind will relax and see the blessing in everything. This relaxation is a state of emptiness where you are surrendered to the vastness of this infinite Universe.
