    "One practices a reverence and agape love for all life form. We do not hate our enemies for they are misguided and on another path. We set up boundaries, find like minded individuals and seek to enhance one's potential. We are more fully immersed in the net of our combined and shared humanity."

    I don't believe in enlightenment from an external source. The only light is the one we create. And once we have created our own light, that is, found answers to our questions that leaves us with more unanaswered questions. And then in turn we need to create more light to answer those questions.

    Self-realization is a process that never ends.

    Neither do I. In this we are similar. Self actualization is as you said a process. It is the journey of our lifetime. Over time we will broaden and deepen our understanding of ourselves, others and reality. Paul

    siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
    explains / deals with this concept / question so well
    and so does the allegory of the cave by Plato once enlightened we seek to enlighten others, take them out of the cave so that they may see the sun.

    Service to the greater whole seems to be the natural impulse of the embodied master (and by mastery I mean mastery of oneself) on this planet. But one is not ultimately obligated to even that if one is truly free. There are stories of people who upon realizing I AM THAT I AM choose to leave the planet. And when you take into account the sheer enegertic density of the planet right now, you can't blame them. I hate the world enlightenment because it leads people to understand it as some sort of objective realization that everyone experiences the same way and that somehow represents a specific state . It doesn't work that way.

    Where did you get that quote from lightsun? I'm curious.

    it's my own writing. Sometimes I post under my spiritual name of LightSun and quote.
