Enlightenment is the realization that there will ALWAYS be more to learn and experience in life and that you are the only person who can enlighten you. The light needs to be turned on in you to reveal your own areas of darkness. No one else can do this effectively. Other people's judgements about you are not the truth. Truth is only what you realize about yourself.
Too many people appear to attempt to pass themselves off as enlightened by simply spouting memorized positive thinking wisdom-oriented sayings and they never actually demonstrate that they themselves actually understand what it is that they are saying. Enlightenment or self-conscious awareness is about an individual person enlightening themselves or discovering the nature of their own ego, personality(ies), inner world, etc. In order to have a context there needs to be some external third-person type of verifiable or at least contemplatable reference. Please offer a story from your own personal experience of enlightenment as an example of something that YOU actually learned or evolved from or to. Thanks.
