Enlightenment is Becoming a Necessity

by Sophie on September 11, 2012

Enlightenment used to belong to the privileged few.  The chosen ones, the monks supported by a whole monastic structure so they could dedicate every second of every day to disciplining their mind and harnessing  the ego. The odd nun might even reach enlightenment in spite of her lowly female status.

I think enlightenment is not exceptional any more. I personally meet (or read the works of) many men and women who have clearly reached what we call enlightenment. Enlightenment has become a necessity.

We don’ t have time to whisper about Divine Union in hushed poetic tones for another 4 or 5 centuries. We need to move beyond politely recognising each other without saying anything much. I think we are programmed for Divine Union. We are hard wired for enlightenment. We are constantly called by Spirit to be the best of who we can be and we know it.

I also believe that enlightenment is a result that can be replicated when you use certain mind opening and consciousness raising methods that have been proven over time.

If you have been feeling the stirrings, the longing: if you have felt the vastness and the oneness even for a second, you owe it to yourself, to the Divine, to humanity and to this beautiful earth to keep going eagerly on your path until you reach what is commonly called enlightenment.

Because on the other side of the portal that we call enlightenment,  there is life in Oneness. You still pay the bills, cook and clean but with a more loving, tender emotional range. With a less grabbing,  less material focus. Enlightenment is not a goal, its only a rite of passage into the life that we are really meant to be having here while in a physical body on earth. I think enlightenment is becoming a necessity if we are going to remain the masters of our technology.

Dearest Sophie,
I agree! Our children, our friends, our life’s work are all waiting for us to become more present and enlightened in our lives. For us to express our wholeness, our love. Especially towards ourselves! Opening up to more love in my heart and fully being in love with me has allowed me to be so very much more present in my life with my children, work, friends… My children feel it and we r living the same life but with more love and kindness, compassion and happiness! My journey towards where I am right now accelerated when I met you. You always hold space for us to be true to who we are, to be honest and congruent in our lives at the deepest level. Thank you for your presence, your blog, teaching the healing classes (which have allowed me to become the healer you saw in me years ago) and your friendship. Thank you for being an true inspiration in my life! Love, Nancy
