Every being seeks to gain the balance between my own and the universe. It sits in our nature to find the balance of understanding with everything that surrounds us. Regardless of culture or religion, the need to identify a sense of existence is unique.
The idea of communion with what is around is essentially a generally valid trait, but after all, it holds each of us to what extent we want to give it value or not. It's a matter of reflection. We choose to make peace with ourselves and to integrate in absolute or choose to stand in conflict and non-sense with everything that surrounds us.
Enlightenment or awakening means the exit from the darkness in a personal form designed to give us new valences to the concepts with which people operate in the course of existence, new forms anchored in the truth and balance of soul and mental, all peacemaker as upper rung of the pyramid of consciousness.
