Is enlightenment a state of man that is uncorrupted by falsity? (i.e. desire, lust, greed, worries, anxietys, for these are all manifestations of ignorance) When Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Bliss, does this imply that they were in a enlightened state of man, and when they have ate the apple(desire) they are casted out?(Of enlightenment?) When the angels have fallen from heaven(enlightenment). Jesus said to seek the Kingdom of Heaven(Enlightenment) "Seek the house that is made without hands, so you may rest"(To rest is to realize the unimportance of the struggle for the vices of sin, to stop worrying and killing for money, women, power, again this is all from my speculation) Are we all already enlightened individuals, but we are cast out of His bosoms because we have degraded ourselves from our highest potential by clinging on to falsity? To become enlightened is to revert back into a previous state of consciousness where we are cleaned from falsity and illusions? Is to become enlightened meaning to see reality how it really is? I guess to really put this down to a single question; Is enlightenment the most simplest state of being, a man without sin, and to achieve it is very simple, yet the Ego makes this "journey" overly complex with the desire to search for more and more, gathering falsity on the way(there shouldn't be a "journey" to enlightenment, for it is already there for our taking) What are your thoughts on this? I am apologizing in advance if this is inappropriate question for this forum. Again, i'm more interested in what you, the instructors, speculation on this theory is.
