"Enlightenment is But a Recognition "
Are we waiting for something different to happen, or are we willing to recognize our enlightenment NOW. A Course In Miracles asks, "Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now. Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all." (Wk.Or.Ed.188)
We don't have to pretend our lives are any "better" than they seem nor do we have to deny any problems or limitations that we appear to have. We only need to look at our apparent problems from a different point of view. "Do not despair, then, because of limitations. It is your function to escape from them, but not to be without them."
