When we become “enlightened” it means that there is a recognition of the existence of a Higher Source, and there is a Higher Code of Conduct that what we see and hear. When it comes to the Divine Laws of Love, we uphold them at all costs, even if it means to the point of death. Evil will try to break you down in every earthly aspect of your life. However, those who are truly enlightened will not put value in such things. God asks us to look beyond the 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching; and to “feel truth”. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and a constant feeding of the soul through prayer and the Word of God, we will see that the Divine Laws of Love are the ruling parameters in the Divine Eternal Kingdom.
If we look at the life and death of Jesus Christ, and even the saints that are declared, their lives demonstrated such earthly parameters that would resemble simplicity in every aspect, from the heart and mind of the individual walking the path to the Eternal Kingdom; and even a life that does not value worldly things, for its happiness. Such souls never feel alone, because of recognizing the Omnipresence of a Higher Source that controls and conducts the Eternal Kingdom, in the Divine Laws of Love. Those that are not truly enlightened will be imprisoned by the parameters of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation, does not hold Himself to. Such souls will see earthly shortcomings as failures, where God says His Blessings are not of this world; and He is not bound by this limited world. Those that are enlightened by the Eternal Divine Laws of Love will see no boundaries in achieving their own happiness, and as a result, though downtroddened only but for a moment (due to Evil’s attempts to discourage such an enlightened soul off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom) will bounce back up due to the presence of the Holy Spirit within such a soul.
We must remember that true enlightenment comes from understanding that there is more to eternity than the boundaries set by this world. It is beyond what we sense with the 5 senses of the human body. We always seek a Higher Source for the wisdom that is ageless, and drives the logic of Eternity. God does things that are beyond the imagination of any Creation’s logic and ways of thinking. This is why He is the Creator. He does not conform to the ways of His Creations; but we are called to strive to seek His ways. So if God says His Ways are beyond the world’s ways, why would His Rewards conform to the ways of the world that He says that are not His? We should reconsider our path to Enlightenment if we are not hit by trials, to refine our thought processes…..because Satan never feels threatened or insulted by a soul that conforms to his ways, therefore no trials come to souls that do not threaten his goal of taking as many souls away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. False hope and understanding will come to those that depend on earthly rewards and ways, for their faith on the path to the Eternal Kingdom. If we look at the lives of all those that dedicated themselves to a life serving and seeking the path of the Eternal Kingdom and Enlightenment, we will see that such souls do not think in carnal ways; they will value things that are considered simple by those imprisoned to value the things of this world…a world whose ways that God said His Ways are not a part of.
