have i been enlightened? or..
am i just maturing?
for almost a year now i have been seeing the world in a completely new way. i spend a lot of my time thinking about life, humanity and me, and how they all come together.
i feel like i've pulled back the curtain....or maybe just the first of many curtains. i feel like i grew up within a system, and now i'm on the outside looking in. i never used to have this approach to thinking...that is, taking the viewpoint of the greater picture. and now i wonder if all this time, other people i know have been under this same curtain, or were/are they already looking at me from the greater picture.
i wonder if most of the world has reached this level of consciousness; but when i see so much stupidy, hate and dishonesty, i just can't believe that. i think many of the problems in the world are a result of this 'inside the system' mentality. people that have not been able to grasp/undesrtand the bigger picture head down bad paths that can lead to negative consequences which escalatel.
my personal opinion (not trying to offend anyone) is that religion is something good/positive that has been created within the system(curtain), trying to connect with what's outside. i am not completely ceratain what my feelings on religion are, but for now, i feel like it's something created by humans, so therefore it can not be an answer to the truth.
the truth is what i've been wondering a lot about.
am i just maturing in my young-adulthood?
or am i thinking outside the box?

I know what you're going through I stuggle with all the same things.I try not to wonder too much what came first,the chicken or the egg.Is it enlightenment or maturity.You may never know.It maybe both.Not thinking very much about it helps me to keep things more simple.I think alot about the rest of the world though,probably too much.I really do'nt want to distract myself much.It's tough enough finding my way,and progressing down the path.I only seem to get confused and frustrated when I look at the world,and very saddened.Although there are many people seeking higher conciousness.Seeking and focusing on the them and the positive has become key.Seeking the truth is a sign of enlightenment.Although I believe we will never find complete enlightenment.The longer you seek enlightenment the more answers you'll find,that's what I've found.Still have alot of questions though, lol.Can't think about who's higher conciousness and who's not,it freaks me out too way too much.Sounds like you're on the path.I agree with what you had to say about religion as well.

stroodle, I just get a nice feeling reading what you wrote.
Sounds like you've pulled back a very important curtain. Maybe there are more, maybe there aren't, but I want you to know I feel encouraged reading young people who write as you do.
There may be an infinite number of curtains, and there may therefore be no such a thing as maturity, ultimately, but thank you for sharing the expansive place you are in right now.
May all the young people in the world start to truly see. May your consciousness be a seed.
Bless you all, you are the hope of the world.

I think maturing and becoming more conscious are synonymous. This continues to happen to me too so I would say there are many more curtains to come. Things seem to get progressively clearer and clearer and I get happier and happier.
Don't let the stupidity, hate and dishonesty 'out there' bother you though as in a strange way you will actually be re-enforcing it, just refuse to judge it - that brings peace. I'm very happy for you stroodle!
