#JustAThought… The Moment of Enlightenment

I still believe that the core purpose of the journey through this lifetime lies in rediscovering our own light, in the way we deal with what happens leads us closer to recognizing who we really are. Joy, pain, drama, success, love, loss, stress, relief shows the results by the consequences of our actions and reactions. Every little incident tells us something about ourselves and the more we experience the more we might see that it is up to us how we experience what happens. Nothing new! BUT…

All of a sudden, a thought and question were flashing through my mind. What if the actual understanding about life and who we really only comes by leaving this physical life? Certainly, this journey down here tells us a lot about ourselves and the universal laws in order to make use of our spiritual abilities and combine both the physical and the spiritual part. BUT can we really ever understand fully the whole of the divine being we are as long as the mind still plays a role in our existence? In case my name is not Jesus or Buddha… I doubt that.

Religion actually tells us that enlightenment happens when we leave the body. I think, I really get the idea now. We do come closer to an understanding of who we really are with everything we experience. But even if we are as aware as we can be of the divinity inside of us, our physical presence will still have a stronger influence than we can recognize. As long as I say, “yes, I do understand the secrets of the universe or who I really am”, isn’t that still my ego that speaks in arrogance? Until the end of this physical lifetime it may still only be an idea (a good one and certainly an important idea to continue the journey… but an idea).

If I am a candle surrounded by light, how can I recognize my light? But when my light is covered I can see it again once I removed that cover. Let’s pretend:

  1. For rediscovering my light, I need a physical body to cover it and the tool of forgetting which basically happens by entering that physical body. Therefore it makes sense to me that remembering happens by leaving it again.
  2. The plan we make for an incarnation is only secondary to fill the time between birth and death with adventures and experiences. That would explain too why I need to learn that I am not anything from this physical world, that nothing can harm the being I really am, that there is nothing to fear, and that therefore love and happiness are the only feelings which match my being – fully recognizing it once I leave this world again.

Perhaps the real purpose of life lies in leaving physical life to understand what life really is. With this insight, death loses a lot of its horror, and at the same time physical life becomes even more meaningful and less scary.

Right. You don’t think how upset these gentlemen will become when you have securitised claims against them. When they have to give money out, you get to know them. Two years ago our clergyman here wanted to bury money in Romania. I was able to help him get better.;-)

A tremendous amount of insights to digest with this posts. A lot has been written and said about us as humans are living a programmed life which begins at birth. Our physical bodies are not our true image sense we are spiritual beings created in the image of God and God being a spirit. We are experiencing the physical life and the natural mind, when we can learn to be more spiritually minded our life will become an even more meaningful and extraordinary experience. Thank you for sharing your wonderful thoughts today!

Yes, absolutely, that way we can get an idea of who we really are when even I started thinking that who I really am can only be fully grasped by leaving this physical life.

That’s so nice of you that you say that. Yes, I do. I try to share something that may make a positive difference for others. It is always a joy to do only imagining it. Again, thank you so much for your words, dear friend 😊

Isn’t all so fascinating my friend? I feel it’s being able to remember our true spirit and trusting how we feel. Following our hearts and dissolving our thoughts.
I recently watched a wonderful documentary called, “I Am” and I highly recommend watching it. I rented it on YouTube. So much vital information. One part that fascinated me is how there is science proving that our heart is more hardwired to make decisions than our brains. I know my biggest sense is my empathy. When I follow my heart, speak from my heart and move from a sense of “what would love do next” I can’t go wrong!
I love this question you pose here. Thank you for asking this. Much love Erika❤❤❤

Your comment has given me goosebumps, Maria. I feel the beautiful light you shine on your way with the way you follow your heart. I think I know that documentary. Isn’t it about Moses? God’s name: I Am That I Am. Wayne Dyer created a CD together with some artists to make a sound to that name. It is about 20 minutes and I use it for meditation about the I Am topic.
Thank you so much for the wonderful comment, Maria. That was an inspiration itself😊

I’m so humbled to add light to your day and your comment felt like a hug, one I really need today. The doc is made by the director of movies like “Ace Ventura” and “The Nutty Professor”. He had a terrible accident that left him rethinking his own existence and place in this world. It’s a mixture of God and our current culture, the good and the not so good things we do that keeps us from understanding we are all connected, intimately for cooperation, community and democracy. It’s one of those life changing type of ah-ha moments piece of art that everyone can benefit from❤❤❤

Good one Erika. An Ecclesiastes quote immediately came to mind:
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
We are certainly here for a purpose. Perhaps it’s a kind of apprenticeship for the next great adventure?

I see it the same way. I think the sporadic breaks from the “only-spiritual” existence can be like a story we create. We may continue where we stopped and leave the end open to continue later. I see it too like being on an excursion, taking a human lifetime. Collecting experiences from a physical existence. I like that thought a lot because it makes me make good use to the time down here… hehe.
Thank your for stopping by and taking the time, Colin. 😊

Magical words dear lady. I have this strange feeling that you have touched that inner being…just a little, to speak with that love you have always searched for. To do so is the truth of that awakening. And as you have said, to fully awaken is the ‘let go’. But it takes considerable time to truly feel and understand that awakening and realise its heart.
Spirit said to me that they know everything, but they do not ‘know’ it. Hence our little sojourn down here. Its like I can explain until I’m blue in the face what it is like to climb Mount Everest, but until the day you do experience that very thing, only then will you ‘know’ that journey.
I bow to a master, of life…and music too 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

Mark your comment is so wonderfully describing what “to know” really means. Only the experienced lesson can really be learned. And even that is individual. Gosh, life is so thrilling and magical itself.
I think you are right, once you touched that core you get an idea and you want to feel this idea more and deeper… How amazing when already the idea feels so awesome… hehe.
Thank you so much for your magical and kind comment, Mark😊🙏💖

So with you on this. Been trying to get my thinking round this for a while. Thinking about life, loss, love and having that overwhelming feeling that I’m missing something. More to things than this. I love the candle image, that’s an image I can visualise so well. Thank you my friend x

When I was writing on that post your situation popped up in my mind too. It is a big topic and there is so much about it, most of all the individual view on it due to personal experiences. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this openly, Gary.
