Enlightenment


If we remove ourselves from the world, we are pretending that we can follow our own individual enlightenment and let the rest of the world go to hell, so to speak. ~Satish Kumar

That's some thoughtful words. I too believe, is it really possible for us to remove ourselves from this world....we can only think about it but the actual action I believe is in our destiny!

How wonderful to know that I can always pop by for a beautiful thought or two and today's is definitely not disappointing.
Have missed you lots, Getzapped.

polona- pretending is an effort some people really work at...good point.

kalyan- well, true we all eventually leave in the physical sense, but I like to think our soul still resides, some how.

kmf - thanks

suzan- hey! It's nice to hear from you. You were missed a lot, too. It's always nice to get your insight.

I suppose that's what happens to selfish people, when it becomes "all about us." I think if we're truly enlightened then we never get the attitude that we don't need anyone else, so why remove yourself from the world? Like Palona says, we can pretend to. I think that we could never reach enlightenment if we did.

Thanks for stopping by, my little Monday visitor!
