How is enlightenment like a million dollar vacation home?

For some seekers, spiritual enlightenment is the ultimate commodity.

They believe that through diligent meditation and self-improvement, there will come a day when it will no longer elude their grasp. Breaking through to the singular state of cosmic consciousness, they will forever after own it, free and clear. Permanently illuminated! Never to backslide into the dull ignominy of normal human awareness!

Here’s what I have to say about that:   It’s a delusion.

The fact is, the nature of perfection is always mutating. What constitutes enlightenment today will always be static treasure that becomes your indestructible, everlasting possession.  Rather, it remains a mercurial knack that must be continually re-earned.

If you want to befriend the Divine Wow, you must not only be willing to change ceaselessly — you have to love to change ceaselessly.

Lucky you: All of creation is conspiring to help you live like that.
