Re: Was JESUS the only heavenly being to incarnate into the human community from heav Enlightenment is not in degrees, you have clearly experienced nothing based on your comments on this forum. Your religion is more of a rebellion than anything genuine, it is very clear. I simply say that attempting to split reality is not going to help, let alone trying to split the spiritual, it is utterly absurd. Enlightenment is to experience the totality, to experience the true nature of existence, it cannot be divided. It simply means that merely in removing the baggage, you are not assured of anything happening. It is by the grace of existence that you are shown reality but if you desire it the very desiring ensures it is impossible. Religion has began through an investigation into death, are you ready to die? If you are not it will not happen for you because enlightenment is exactly a type of death. That willingness to hand over your very being is what is necessary, but you are not willing to do that. This is truly shocking, I was thinking you were at most 20 years old.
