What is enlightenment?
Instead of viewing enlightenment as some lofty goal that might be achieved after a lifetime of striving. Think of it as a process of enlightenment. The more you realize and "live out" from your Soul, and the more you "live in" and express the unconditional love, compassion, kindness, and truth of your Soul &mdash the more enlightened you are, and the more enlightened your life is. And remember, those qualities of your Soul are the natural state of your being. So through our sadhana, which includes the way we live our lives, we become more enlightened with every breath, every moment, every day, every year. This reminds me of another wonderful quote by Yoganandaji: "If you fill the minutes of your life with divine aspirations, automatically the years will be saturated with them".
