What does the word enlightened actually mean to you when you use it like this?
No words mean the same to two people, but as we evolve we at least gain the ability to sense more than our own perspective, which then grows into a unity thing which then grows into an infinite thing that seems abstract at first, then that becomes obvious and doesn't alarm us so the we push further.
With normal language I guess I'd call it a state of continuous humble spiritual growthwith love for everything around you and in everything you say and do. There is not just one way to channel this through your life.
First we have to become fearless and get past all the ego and need to prove anything and do things for the love of it.
In my life I try to share love through playing music and sharing my joy both through playing for people and also teaching and guiding other people to find themselves through this artform. My skill level comes from the same philosophy. At no point has it been about proving anything. It's about sharing love and joy.

Everything is a choice and if we let our heart choose instead of our ego, the choices are always good ones.
