Once we re-connect with the Source of all that is, the flow of Cosmic energy through our awareness will begin to Enlighten us.
When we open up to this flow and allow it to guide us we gain ever increasing access to our natural state, which is enlightenment.
As this process of regaining the natural state progresses we serve as points of contact for those around us to become inspired to Enlighten themselves.
The process is easy and natural, it requires no effort, yet the constructed 'self' that you believe you are will present difficulties as you work through the process of clearing its influence.
Remembering that the true essence of all that is flows through all things will help to ease the releasing of the created obstacles that may be encountered along the way, as none of your 'stuff' belongs to you anyway.
