Enlightenment means being in a state of ‘Not Knowingness’.
When one is open to all possibilities and does not attach himself to his knowingness, – his past, this state of being a zero all the time is Enlightenment.
Being somebody is knowingness. When one attaches oneself to one’s knowingness like engineering, doctorate, or accountancy, one limits oneself. This identification with one’s knowingness is called Ahamkara – ego.
Normally, all of us are brainwashed into being a ‘Somebody,’ and we operate from this ego state.
To live and operate as a Nobody, of actually who you are, is Enlightenment.
Nobody is born a Hindu, Muslim, Indian or American. Actually, we are none of these. But we identify with them and operate in a way to protect this somebodyness. This is the ignorance of the world.
To live in the world with no identifications, concepts of what you are or what others think of you is Enlightenment.
To live as a ‘Nobody’ beyond the Ego as a – Zero is – Enlightenment.
