Enlightenment is not a change in me. It is not a new world, not a new state of being. I am still myself. All that has changed is my outlook on the world. The world does not become perfect with enlightenmnet. It is already perfect. People are not annoying, not rude, not moody, these are labels. Each is perfect in their own way. View the world not in the terms of good and bad, right and wrong, cool and uncool; instead, view it simply as it is, the perfect state of being that it inhabits.

The great thing about the world is that it is naturally beautiful. As soon as we drop all preformed thoughts about people, objects, and ideas, we see them for just what they are. Beautiful. People spend their entire lives looking for God, a higher being, a calling. It is funny that they look in churches, mosques, books and religious authorities. All that one needs to do is simply go outside and take a look around. Look at a tree. Don't think about it, it's type, it's placement, simply look at it. Life is such a wonder. This planet is such a wonder it boggles my mind. Not only that, the wonder and beauty of a God can been seen in everything; the roundness of a cup, the crease of a well-read book. Simply take a look.
