Have you ever experienced a sudden change within that you can’t explain? An unexpected moment of lightness, airiness, where nothing else exists; knowing something deep inside without having to think; seeing the world around you bathed in crystal clear light?
These sudden changes are moments of spiritual enlightenment.
Moments of enlightenment come out of the blue, and can disappear just as quickly. Mostly, we dismisss these experiences and turn our attention to something else because we don’t know what they really are.
Moments of enlightenment are gems.
They have a purpose:
- they show us the presence of something within that is different from the mind.
- they show us that this something is a place of great beauty and peace, knowledge and power.
- they show us that this something is our essence, soul.
Because we experience this first-hand, we know it to be true.
