Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment. Enlightenment illuminates the mind by shedding light to those presumed closed doors; the freedom of mental slavery. Ignorance has no role to play in the evolution of our consciousness. Someone who is truly enlightened will seek for opportunities in places the ignorant man had deemed futile. They possess high willingness to learn new things and be educated in matters that are important to them. They aim to create the kind of life they want. There are various ways that will power you to proper enlightenment.
Take a look at five (5) ways that will power you to proper enlightenment;
1. Stay focused.
Without focus life becomes a blur. The ability to maintain focus in any given situation gives one a perceptive insight of the matter at hand. Your moment of focus is your moment of creation. The more you delve deep into a situation with absolute focus, provides clarity. A clear understanding of a situation enlightens one to a point of possession. Enlightenment begins with understanding and understanding begins with focus.
2. Stay positive.
Positivity is the key to enlightenment; it creates a channel for the easy flow of information. Positivity promotes education which leads to enlightenment; when you are always positive in dealing with situations, it destroys your ignorance; enlightenment destroys ignorance. It propels you to always see the light in every situation. No good thing was ever accomplished without positivity. It makes room for the acceptance to acquire knowledge and become enlightened.
3. Be flexible in your thinking.
One who is truly enlightened will want to try different ways to achieve a desired result. An enlightened person is flexible in their thinking and hardly get discouraged by difficulties; they don’t let themselves get knocked off-course. They keep all options open to them; inviting suggestions. They realize that the effective ground for change is within their own mind.
4. Show appreciation.
The greatest source of happiness is the ability to be grateful at all times. True enlightenment is in the appreciation of life as it unfolds. Life is a mystery. Trying to figure out everything about life puts one in a state of oblivion. Understand that you will never understand everything about life. Be grateful for the gift of the present; here and now. Make out time to enjoy the little things in life, because one day you will look back and realize they were big things.
5. Create the life you want.
Life is your canvas, paint it how you want it. If you see an opportunity go for it. Learn to see little beginnings in places others would call a dead end. An enlightened person seeks to create the kind of life they want. They don’t sit around waiting for change to come to them. They go out and make the change they want.
