Is enlightenment a permanent state?

Is enlightenment a permanent state?

Yes. When you attain the last degree of enlightenment, your mind will be entirely dissolved. If not, the answer is no. After you achieve the stage of enlightenment, there are three more stages to go. These are called "bodies" or "vehicles". Your consciousness now functions through these bodies as they move around on Earth. The final stage is when the body dies and the consciousness merges back into infinite space.

The way most people interpret this statement is that once you reach enlightenment you're done forever changing; however, this is not what it means. There are still three more stages to go after enlightenment which includes taking a new physical form if you so choose. The only thing that stops you from going through these stages right now is your attachment to doing so in the first place.

The important thing to understand here is that while you're alive you can always come back to earth again. Even after your death, your consciousness still remains intact and can recontact your current vehicle any time it wants to. As long as you haven't met your end, there's always a chance that you'll eventually wake up somewhere else next time you want to change vehicles.

This doesn't mean that after you die, you'll never be able to experience anything again. It's just that your current vehicle will no longer exist for you to contact.

Is everyone capable of enlightenment?

Everyone has the potential to achieve enlightenment. You will still need to live a human life after attaining enlightenment, but from a different perspective. You will also need to spend some time to be motionless in order to experience the boundless awareness that you are. Only then can you truly say that you have achieved enlightenment.

So, it is possible for everyone to reach enlightenment? It is possible for anyone to reach enlightenment, if they take the necessary steps and have enough time to do so. However, most people don't because they don't want to or cannot handle the process once it's started.

Enlightenment is a state of complete happiness that comes from understanding the true nature of reality. At its core, enlightenment is about seeing through the illusion of separation and finding unity with everything else.

As long as you believe in a separate self, an individual soul, there is no way for you to attain enlightenment. Once you realize that you are one with all other things, that all beings are enlightened and that none of them exist apart from everything else, then and only then can you say that you have attained enlightenment.

In other words, enlightenment is not something that can be gained or lost. Once you understand this truth, you will stop looking for something that cannot be found.

Can you lose your enlightenment?

Is it possible to lose enlightenment? In the first place, there is no "you" to "have" enlightenment. "You" are merely a consciousness object that has been misidentified as a subject. Because that "you" isn't real, it can't ever become enlightened. However, that doesn't mean that enlightenment is unachievable. It's just not achievable by you or me.

When someone says they have "lost their enlightenment," what they really mean is that they've made some mistakes in their practice and ended up back where they started, i.e., being unconscious of reality. This can happen to anyone at any time, but it usually happens after many years of practicing.

The only way you could "lose" your enlightenment is if you stopped believing in it!

Is self-realization the ultimate value of enlightenment?

However, enlightenment is a journey, not a destination. Self-Realization is the commencement or doorway to this journey. The final worth of enlightenment is determined by the person. Obtaining enlightenment and then doing nothing with it will not go you very far. You must apply what you have learned in some way so that your experience is not wasted.

There are many examples of people who have "achieved" enlightenment and then lost their sight, hearing, mind, or body once they stopped practicing. They may even have become violent or committed suicide.

Enlightenment is a state of being where you realize God is one and equal with you. It is also known as "divine awareness." From there, you can choose to use this knowledge to better yourself or others. Your choice determines your final status: divine or human.

Self-realization begins the journey toward enlightenment. It is the ability to look within yourself and know truth about who you are and what is real. This awareness comes from connecting with your own spirit which lives inside every living thing.

Spiritual growth requires constant effort because our human nature tends to repeat old patterns over and over again without changing unless we make a conscious decision not to do so. This is why the path to enlightenment is never ending; it is always moving forward despite any temporary setbacks.
