  1. The Buddha says that you have to stop trying to be enlightened. Just let it happen.

  2. it depends on what you know about. but i believe that the best way to become enlightened would be to live life and learn from your experiences.

  3. by reading and accepting the enlightened values as can be seen in voltaire, montaigne, lock, and hobbes, etc.
    also, learn through experience, and enlightened values tend to be nonreligious.

  4. A Voice in my head said follow me. I was 14 years old. It took another 2 or 3 years for me to understand.

  5. through a lifetime of experience. Through prayer and perseverance. Also through meeting people and teachers. Enlightened just means understanding life and your lifes purposes and being happy with who you are.

  6. Enlightenment, in my opinion is a very good thing. It is basically an advanced state of self awareness and understanding. And it is usually achieved through introspection and years of meditation not just about yourself but about everything.

  7. Read the bible and find his word in you.
    you are a vessel of god god is in you and you are part of the trinity
    cheers
    find it for yourself.
    cheers

  8. Encounter genius, through reading or listening; reflect on your experiences.
    Enlightenment tends to happen when you are not looking for it directly, but just getting on with your life.
    I am struggling to think how it could ever be good to be UNenlightened. But then some people really cannot see why Obama is infinitely better than Bush…

  9. Read God’s word the Holy Bible. If you speak modern English read the New Living Translation, because it is written in modern English. If you speak 16th Century old English then you will need the King James Version.

  10. some people believe jesus was enlightened, and if that is true, the answer is in the bible. probably the old testament. so I would suggest reading the old testament, now your next question is, there are lots of religious folks reading the old testament why aren’t they all enlightened. they are looking for a meaning rather than allowing them self to be inspired. they are searching and not seeking. seek and ye shall find, ask and it shall be given, knock and it shall be opened.

  11. Enlightenment is not a momentary feeling as many people think; momentary enlightenment is like infatuation. True enlightenment is like true love which will last forever. A true enlightenment is attainment of wisdom which makes us clearly understand about the perishable and the imperishable. Living with such wisdom is called an enlightened life.

  13. G Easy. Use the Life Decryption Key consistently for a while and enlightenment ceases to be a far-off condition. It is nascent in everyone and delusions block awareness of it.

  14. Drop bad habits like consumerism, greed, hatred, and ignorance.
    Develop good habits like generosity, kindness and interest in others as well as yourself, read Buddhist books esp the Pali Canon
    Meditate to calm and clear your mind.
    And then let yourself go!
    Enlightenment is the only reason to be alive.
