Guest writer for Wake Up World
Buddhist monks, Hindu yogis, modern spiritual teachers, and Burning Man enthusiasts may all use the term “spiritual enlightenment” – but are they speaking about the same thing?
In this article I will explore what spiritual enlightenment is, both the traditional definition as well as the modern interpretation. There is no consensus around this topic, and it’s an area of intense metaphysical debate. My purpose here is to eliminate some misconceptions, and to discuss what are the optimal attitudes to develop in relation to this lofty goal.
Why is this important? Because the right attitude will empower you to live a deep and fulfilling life, while the wrong attitude will make you feel frustrated, inferior, or indifferent. However, I’m not here to convince anyone of anything. This article is primarily intended for those who have a spiritual practice and are interested in exploring the wisdom and traditions of the East.
