Enlightenment = Alignment
Just heard Abraham say this.
This is HUGE. We all think about Buddha sitting under the Bodhi tree for weeks looking for enlightenment. Maybe he was looking for something else but for us, in this day an age, enlightenment does not mean lots of work and sacrifice. Quite the contrary. It is as simple as finding satisfying thoughts from within for the sheer joy of having satisfying thoughts. NOT waiting for something to happen to feel happy, or content or satisfied.
Abraham says we are only ever a puppy or a baby away from alignment.
So if you are looking for enlightenment, abandon your search for a Bodhi tree (Home Depot is fresh out of them) and grab your neighbors kid and head down to the animal shelter.
