Anyone can become enlightened

Anyone can become enlightened.  Read the story of Milarepa for just one example.  The disposition on the advanced path is: If anyone can wake up, why not me?  If only one in a million or one in a billion will become enlightened, I may be that one.

“Accept with certainty that you will become enlightened in this lifetime.”

Advanced Path book

What is being suggested comes from a place of non-separation, not ego.  It would be easy to engage the spiritual ego and feel very important.  Instead, this comes from a place of deep humility that we are all God.  It creates an opening to Light that might have been blocked by thoughts filled with doubt, low self-esteem or spiritual fatigue.

The feeling is:

  1. Enlightenment is real
  2. It is possible for me to become enlightened in this lifetime
  3. It is possible, because liberation is my constant focus and I’m willing to do the work to wake up

 

“Think to yourself: it could be today.”
