As you go through life, certain signs will show that you have finally reached enlightenment.
Enlightenment is a term given for those who are at the top level of spirituality.
In this present time, we live in a materialistic world, and spirituality seems to have been pushed to the back burner.
While it’s okay to think more logically, it must be remembered that our soul needs to be fed as well.
Sure, to reach the enlightenment level, it’s a very long process.
And each person will receive enlightenment differently based on their situations and upbringings.
However, there are some signs you can notice when you have finally reached enlightenment.
So, what are they? Let’s discuss them below.
Signs You Have Finally Reached Enlightenment
1-Being Closer to the creator (God)
No matter your religion, spirituality places a superpower entity above all of us, generally known as God.
Besides, there are also groups of people who believe that nature and the universe work based on their own law, and they tend to appreciate it rather than mentioning God’s presence.
The same thing between the two is about spirituality.
People who have been enlightened tend to be more spiritual and religious, no matter what they believe.
2-Being More Grateful; Signs You Have Finally Reached Enlightenment
Yes, there are so many things to be grateful for in the world.
Even if you don’t have anything anymore, there’s still the air to breathe and water to drink.
Well, an enlightened person tends to be more grateful for every little thing that they have in life.
Everybody was born to the world with his or her own goodness and badness.
There is no need to judge others since we’re not perfect too.
If you have been enlightened, you tend to respect others regardless of their social status or possessions.
It becomes your nature, and you believe each person has their own way towards spirituality.
4-Spreading Love to Other; Signs You Have Finally Reached Enlightenment
You may have a problem with someone else. It’s a normal thing for sure.
But rather than feeling hateful, you tend to stay calm and even introspect yourself.
There’s indeed no need to hate and blame others. Instead, spreading love is a much better thing to do.
Thus, you have become a loving and forgiving person.
5-Forgiving Yourself and Others.
We’re not human if we never make mistakes. Well, even our life must be full of mistakes whether we realize it or not.
You realize your life is much better if you become a forgiving person.
Indeed, forgiving ourselves and others is the best thing to do if we wish for a more peaceful life. And this is also a sign that we’ve been enlightened.
6-Focus on Doing Good Things.
Rather than spending energy mocking or hating others, it’s better to focus ourselves on positive things.
You can do all the good things, whatever they are.
You can focus on your jobs, studies, and, sure, helping others for a better world.
If you can manage yourself that way, it’s a sign that you’ve been enlightened. It is proven.
7-Responding to Problems More Wisely.
So many issues in this world may shake our hearts. But it’s not a solution to leave bad and irresponsible comments on social media.
An enlightened person tends to respond to problems more wisely, not childish, although he/she may be still very young.
Enlightenment indeed tends to make us more mature than how we should be. And it can happen to everybody.
