Stages of Enlightenment

by stewart

Learn to see those things

Which you must do

And those things

Which God/Light must do.

He/she who can recognize the difference

Is on their way to enlightenment.


Most travelers expect enlightenment

To arrive in a flash.

They imagine it is like turning on

A lamp in their home.

This is our desire for haste

And stems from greed.


This process is much slower

And knowledge comes in stages;

And once the Light is on

It cannot be turned off

As easily as hitting a switch.




Check-out my two new books: Sufism for Western Seekers: Path of the Spiritual Traveler in Everyday Life and The Ferryman’s Dream.  Both books are available through or local bookstore.
