Here is my definition of enlightenment: It is the clear seeing that it is a false assumption to be a separate individual, and that this assumption is only based on identifications with sections in memory – past screen shots of a body we call ‘me.’ Who owns the light for this realization? It can’t be a separate individual as that has been seen to be fake. The story prior to enlightenment fades into nothingness – as if it never happened. Listening to such stories can create headaches as those stories are specific stories. Such headaches are natural indicators that we should not give any importance to the stories, no matter how dramatic they sound. The belief in the drama itself is the sole distraction from naturally seeing the scene in an enlightened way.
