When you commit to meditate daily for at least 10 minutes, you eventually and genuinely experience your OWN awakening. You also realize you have no need or interest in someone else’s awakening because you focus on your own experience. Just like you are unique in bodily form, you are unique in how and when (if ever) you experience your own enlightened moments. How they feel, come about and what they signify to you will be different (albeit perhaps similar) than another person’s. So it is futile and foolish to compare yourself to someone else’s version of consciousness.
That being said, the here and now and being in the present moment, in a very real sense with no barriers and connected to all that is One, IS the enlightenment.
