Enlightenment is NOT Perfection
The LIGHT of this INDIAN SUMMER day is so beautiful. Warm. Gentle. Fragrant. The last of the Autumn leaves letting go and releasing into their knee deep piles in the yard…
AHHHH! LIGHT! Feel it fill your being… A lot of people seem to think that “enlightenment” is equivalent to “perfection” or “saint hood”…
There’s an old zen saying: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. AFTER enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”
In my opinion, enlightenment is the ability to hold and reflect more LIGHT. It also means to have a “lightness of being” about you. and also, to “Lighten UP!”.

I had some other thoughts about peoples opinions in yesterday’s post/video… so you might want to check that out as well.
Stop trying to be perfect and PLAY with the idea of En-Lightening UP your life!
