Is it realistic to strive for enlightenment Striving toward enlightenment is a goal of millions but is it important or even realistic to become enlightened?

What does it mean to you?

Really, the unattainable goal of being only happy is disheartening for many who want so much to escape their ‘bad’ emotions that indicate they are not enlightened--emotions like anger and fear.

This common path to enlightenment is sending a message to humanity by spiritual leaders that in order to be ‘good’ or enlightened, one must attain a goal, which by its very definition (to transcend emotions like anger, fear and jealousy) dehumanizes the individual, causing them to be ungrounded and lose valuable life experiences.

Embracing a holistic approach to enlightenment that consists of lighting up every part of us, all the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ parts, creates an unconditional acceptance and peace, which is true enlightenment!
