The path that leads to enlightenment is the path we take to better ourselves, better our lives, become better people, and become more spiritually aware.
But in order to attain spiritual awareness, we have to be in touch with truth and continually work on that. Enlightenment isn’t something that just happens, it’s something we must continue to work on.
The foundation that can help us achieve enlightenment is progress. Progress means we are making headway, but our starting point must always be self-awareness. We must continue to be more tolerant and patient, less opinionated and judgmental and more empathetic towards others and what they may deal with.
Enlightenment is spreading and being a positive influence on others, and in the world. Having harmony as part of that process allows us to improve ourselves without hurting others and spreading happiness to people.
The path to enlightenment is not an easy path, but it is one that if practiced regularly will continue to give us the most peace in our lives and with each other.
