Enlightenment is not a goal or something to strive or hope for. Enlightenment is fully and completely being who you are, where you are. You are already the entire universe, the macrocosm within the microcosm.
In mindful presence,
Enlightenment is always there. Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment. If you breathe in and are aware that you are alive—that you can touch the miracle of being alive—then that is a kind of enlightenment.
―Thich Nhat Hanh
