What happens when one achieves “enlightenment”?
Does this suddenly enable us to “see reality”
Bypassing fantasies of power and success –
Beyond adolescent desires beckoning us ever upward.
Yes, it’s accepting that whatever’s there – is there.
Alternatively, it could be when “we” disappear
And become “nothing” –
Each instant appearing new
As we become birthed and rebirthed an infinite number of times –
Everything experienced “fresh” –
Isn’t that what God is like – as experienced through a human body.
Most of the time, though, we’re simply regular selves –
That is until, suddenly, we remember we’re enlightened –
And flicker into “life” –
Opening up like a red flower blossoming in an orange sun.
This “self” is able to change as fast as new experiences pile in –
Actually, even babies know how to do this!
