Enlightenment

What is enlightenment? Perhaps the most enlightened among us know enlightenment is knowing there is no such thing as enlightenment. We have enlightened moments, enlightened activities, but there is no permanent state of enlightenment that we can live in. Enlightenment is a dream of man, a concept formed by the ego. The ego tells us that if we reach enlightenment, we have truly accomplished something! Is it possible man can be so perfect as to reach such a state? How can a mere mortal, a grain of sand in a vast beach, ever hope to be enlightened?
