All of us are heading towards enlightenment whether we are choosing it or not. Some have made this journey very complicated, but in truth it is a very natural process that is occurring. There are really only two parts to it; sensitivity, and equanimity (sattva). The deeper you can take this equanimity the more enlightened you become; that is where meditation comes in. Having sensitivity without equanimity leads you to deep confusion and a very clever ego. Equanimity without depth is no equanimity at all. Under the surface there is deep miseries developing that will inevitably rise up. All must start where they are at, and be okay with the work that lies ahead. That is the first step; simply accepting ourselves where we are at.
