What is Enlightenment?

Enlightenment is the cessation of unhappiness.

Our natural state is happiness (peace, bliss, stillness).

Therefore, happiness is available whenever unhappiness is absent.

Happiness is a state of being and unhappiness is a state of doing.

Mental activity has the ability to obscure our natural peace.

The more intense the activity, the more obscuring it is.

Asking our mind to find peace is like asking a muddy toddler to show us our immaculate living room.

The mind is the principle of agitation, so it can’t show us the way to stillness or be still.

The mind is only a false limitation on consciousness – stillness is what we actually are.
