On Being Enlightened

Searching, absorbing teachings, reading the masters, sitting in meditation, being with nature… all in the quest for “enlightenment”.

The seeking for the deepest truths is a lifelong quest, but the journey to enlightenment finds us right where we started… in this very moment, being truly and uniquely who we are.  Knowing the creative potential in the moment, with focused, savoring, attention on the be-ing-ness of living, takes me as close as I think I’m going to get to enlightenment – and it is enough.

 

As the quote goes:

New Mexico, Taos Square & Clouds“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.  After enlightenment;  chop wood, carry water.”
