According to Daniel (who got it from Alice Miller), enlightenment is a synonym for “connection with the true self,” and an enlightened person is someone who is strongly connected with true self, can see the truth and can speak it.
Today Daniel describes the four stages he sees people go through as they grow from trauma to enlightenment, which are
1. Dissociation; 2. Suffering; 3. Grieving; 4. Enlightenment. (Ta da!)
Then Daniel “puts on his imagination cap” and describes his vision of an enlightened world.
I must say, it really sounds quite lovely, and I’d like to live there.
