read the bible and attend church…
but how you respond to that enlightenment is most important.

Depends on your definition of enlightened.
If you want to know how to get God, all you have to do is ask Him.

Origami

Ask questions.
Listen for answers.

Be rational; free yourself of ignorance, prejudice and superstition. Seek all the knowledge you can. Understand the knowledge you get. Be open-minded. That is the hallmark of enlightenment.

I studied philosophy of religion at a-level, then studied the new testament. Then after that a futher seven years researching into various religions to try to find what i was looking for.
I have never felt so enlightened as when i realised i was Atheist – and it is learning about the physics, astronomy, theories on the origins of the universe and nature at it’s most fundamental level – ie; molecular science… THAT has been the most satisfying and truly enlightening experience of my life, and i am pleased to still be on the journey of learning – i dont think it will ever end!
This is where it all started for me:

Good luck with that – every one has their own way, just find yours.

start by being really gratefull for all that you have
help others
desire nothing of this world
hurt no-one
respect life
this is the start of the road that leads to enlightenment bu tthe road is long

Keep your mind open, avoid judgment, and put other people’s needs above your own. Meditate to clear your own.
I’ll star. One of my contacts is a Zen Buddhist expert; perhaps he can provide a better answer.

Background:
space/time hyperspaces – Ref: Georg Riemanns Metric Tensors year of 1854
Current thought. Universe consists of super strings (10 Dimensions)
Time is not linear. Time varies with mass, acceleration and gravity. Ref: Atomic clocks
Einstein, the present past and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
Bible has been discovered to be a 1. Integrated message system, 2. Has origins of dimension from outside its time domain. Ref Chuck Missler. prophecy predicts future events (out of 1,000 prophecies, so far 500 are authenticated.) Only someone outside our plain can know of future events in advance.-
Matthew 5: 17 18 Jesus says: Til heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled (prophecy)
Each book of the Bible (66 total) with 40 different authors, is one part of an integrated message. Example
Genealogy of Genesis 5
Starting with ADAM
Adam
Seth
Enosh
Kenan
Mahalalel
Jared
Enoch
Methuselah
Lamech
Noah
Hebrew interpretations, not English
Adam means………………..Man (is)
Seth means………………….Appointed
Enosh means ………………Mortal
Kenan means……………….Sorrow; (but)
Mahalal means……………..The Blessed God
Jared means………………..Shall come down
Enoch means………………Teaching
Methusala means…………His death shall bring
Lamech means……………The Disparing
Noah means……………….Comfort, rest
Genesis is part of Torah (Inspired by God). This reads Man is appointed mortal. Sorrow; but the blessed God shall come down, teaching. His death shall bring the disparing comfort, rest.
God time traveled through all these generations to leave us this “love note” to tell us history in advance.
This is factual information
Believe.

Open your heart and the knowing will find you.

Relax. Quit looking for some $#@& method. And enjoy your quiet time. You might find it takes 10 minutes or 10 years. Makes no difference, really.

Study the enlightenment movement.

Existentialist.

Any activity that causes correct thinking, and enables you to be on good terms with everyone, would be enlightenment.

Pray the rosary regularly! See the following promises.
The rosary is explained here:
http://www.ewtn.com/Devotionals/Prayers/rosary/how_to.htm
The fifteen promises of Mary to Christians who recite the rosary:
1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
9. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of death.
14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
15. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
God bless!

You have to do what you have to do. Start writing to yourself to seek direction. Try answering this question you have asked. Seek knowledge that makes you tingle and ask what is tingling? Pay attention because you never know when you will discover your rest within.

Allow the mind to become empty (‘no-thoughts-at-all’… state, does not matter if the mind vanishes even!), yet remaining very alert, aware and fully conscious.

learn, read books and question the world around you. by books I mean factual books not fiction like the bible – enlightenment is the gaining of knowledge and wisdom.

Sitting silently !!! doing nothing !!!!! the enlightenment will happen by itself !!!!!

.
Choose peace in every thought you have. If your thought doesn’t bring peace, then choose again.
Enlightenment can only come to a peaceful mind.
Keep love, joy and gratitude always in your heart and extend it to all whom you meet.
Do not judge any situation, or person.
Forgive all situations where you perceive yourself to have been wronged.
The mind needs to be cleansed of all negativity before we can begin to seek Enlightenment.
Meditation may be of assistance in helping you to do this.
I wish you blessings in your search for Truth.
Namaste

The best laid plans of mice and men often come to naught
Can you Live, instead of trying to live?
Can you Die every second to the past? Do you betray the present? That is: do you foster traditions (goals, doctrines, ideals, morals, principles, rules etc)? Are they not treasons committed against ”now”?
To desire this expectation for the future, is to fear that opposite occuring: all of this occurs in the now: so is that living?
Can you drop expectation, and observe?
Tradition: Derives from the latin word Traduaire, from the root Tradere meaning “deliver, hand over,” from trans- “over” + dare “to give” (see treason).

Become aware of of who this doer is …who is trying to reach enlightenment…it is the only obstacle.
Let it go…and it IS.

Cease to do evil, learn to do good and purify the mind.
No problem.
Might take a while for most of us.
