These enlightenment experiences are real to us, not some understanding, but an actual lived experience. All at once we feel a sense of wakefulness, like waking up when you didn’t even know you were asleep. It’s like seeing the sun peek behind the clouds on an overcast day.
We have the potential for these experiences because of our practices of mindfulness and awareness.
In these experiences we can begin to develop real understanding, understanding of what we are, our place in the world. These experiences tend to develop our faith in the path. These experiences are what tell us that Enlightenment is possible.
The Spiritual Naturalist Society works to spread awareness of spiritual naturalism as a way of life, develop its thought and practice, and help bring together like-minded practitioners in fellowship.
