How To Reach Enlightenment In 60 Seconds Or Less

Posted by on Jan 21, 2014 | 4 Comments

Enlightenment seems like a state-of-mind reserved only for the select few who meditate, ponder and pray all day, their entire lives. It’s not for mere mortals like you and I who are holding down jobs, working on big ideas and balancing personal lives with professional ambitions.

Or is it?

I had one goal in 2013: to read A Course In Miracles from cover to cover. I didn’t reach that goal just yet, just like enlightenment I suppose, but I’m getting close. Each day packs a little punch of dense meditative thought, a new opportunity to see the world a little differently. The baseline of the teachings from A Course is that there is only one truth, that you are loved and that your purpose is to love. Basically, that’s it. Love and are loved. 

If life is really broken down to that simple of a premise, think how powerful each one of us could really be when we believed that and lived it? If you feel loved, you don’t feel a need to cheat or attack or judge. Those are things that come from insecurity or feelings of lack. And insecurity comes from feeling like in some arena of your life, you’re not enough, which means aren’t lovable. That’s not true.

I think that’s why little kids make friends so easy. They are still so innocent and see and feel fully loved. So they don’t care what people look like, say or do, they’re just loved and so they love others easily.

It’s a simple concept that’s incredibly challenging for some reason to live.

But it boils down to a choice.

One you can make.

Every Moment.

And it turns out, it’s also the way to “achieving” enlightenment.

“You have the power to think in ways that reflect and attract all the love in the world. Such thinking is called enlightenment. Enlightenment is not a process we work toward, but a choice available to us in any instant.” -Marianne Williamson

How will you choose enlightenment today?

    You hit a lot of good points in this article. I too feel that we are here to love and be loved. I love how Source has made our purposes so simple. Since we forget who were are as divine spirits and souls once we enter the physical realm, we have to remember all over again that we are all connected. I once read that if you want to be something, then teach someone how to be that something. For me, I want to live the highest vision of myself; a spiritually aware, always present, infinite being. Children just get it! They are so amazing and I think it’s because they are not so far removed from where we all come from. I’m excited to be living right now in the present because there is a definite spiritual awakening going on right now. Your website and others like it prove this everyday. Thanks for this healing and helpful article.

    Today when I spoke with my mom on the phone we said a prayer that we may give love to everyone we meet today. I really think that love is the greatest thing that we have to give and receive in this whole dang world.
