Most people wander through life not even knowing of the possibility of enlightenment. Even many “spiritual people” and seekers in the alternative movement don’t really have a clue about what this mysterious term really means...


According to Bashar enlightenment is defined as follows:
It’s when you realize that you are the Universe you previously thought you were in.”
 Consciousness Pioneer -  Consciousness Pioneers - Conscious Creation - Life by Design - Master New Energy
Enlightenment happens when the final dualism of subject (ego) and object (out there) is resolved and the artificial separation is removed so that oneness with everything becomes self-evident and obvious.


Many people ask Bashar what the fastest way to enlightenment really is. He usually answers jokingly by saying:
If you want to get enlightened, then simply lighten up!”
He then usually repeats the definition that has become his hallmark and core teaching:

“The quickest and simplest way to enlightenment is to follow your excitement to the best of your ability, as often and as far as you can take it, with zero expectations to the outcome. If you do this you will see that your life becomes an ecstatic explosion of synchronicity.” 

The zero expectations part is often the hardest for people to get right. It’s also the most important part because it’s the safety mechanism that makes sure you are actually doing what excites you, just because it excites you, and not because of some obscure ulterior motive like “becoming rich or famous” or whatever.

Not that it’s anything wrong with actually becoming rich, famous, or both as that can happen as a side-effect of following your highest excitement in life, but if you allow your excitement to be polluted by some “agenda” you are not really following your true excitement.

True excitement takes you right into the present and makes everything else secondary (even basic needs like eating and sleeping are forgotten if you are in high states of excitement and inspiration).

However, following your excitement does not mean that you have to be on that level of excitement all the time (then you would eventually die of hunger!).

Enlightenment is really just Freedom. Freedom to be yourself, to be your full expression, free of the things that would hold you back. (Adamus)

Live your life for the pure joy instead of to get anywhere!  

LIVE for the JOY of It.


I would just love for people to really embrace life as a joyful experience. We know we chose to come here and that we just came here for experience, and we know that we get to choose how it is, so why not choose it to be joyful and full of love? We get so caught up in the journey, thinking that enlightenment is this reward down the track and that integration is this final destination, instead of just saying, “I am there, and now I choose to enjoy it!”

I think once we finally let go of having to learn more, or of having to integrate or deal with aspects and all that stuff – which is so wonderful and noble – and instead do it just for the joy of knowing more of ourselves; when we stop and say, “Yes, I am enlightened!” and then just enjoy life whatever it looks like, wherever it looks like, whatever it feels like; when we let go of all the ideas and expectations of how we should be in life and don’t care what anyone else thinks about it, there’s such a fabulous freedom in that!

And live your life for the pure joy instead of to get anywhere!

(Kuthumi channeler Marisa Calvi)

It really is now that we are all so ready to stop with the struggle and to let go of this journey business. And to really stop and just really own your ascension. To really trust that we are enlightened.

The real joy now in this new consciousness is staying and experiencing it in this dimension.

Because no one, apart from me and Adamus, have really done that before, okay? So you’re now sitting within this era of humanity which is actually open to allowing that experience. And it’s allowing it to happen side-by-side with those still choosing duality. Which is a fabulous distraction and it kind of still likes to pull you guys out of your center and your balance a little bit! 

So I like to be around to remind you that yes, you are enlightened. Yes, you have ascended. Now you’re having the fun of getting to know it. Now you’re having the fun of letting it evolve. Now you’re having the fun of doing it in this absolutely personal, sovereign way. Because the way you do it, John, will be different to how Marisa does it, to how Jean does it, to how whoever else does it. Ascension now is the most intimate personal experience. You can share your stories and you can share your feelings, but you can never tell someone else how to do it. You can never tell someone else, “This is the way it is done.” And if anyone ever tells you that, hit them! [Kuthumi laughs at his joke.] 

This is now about just the intimacy of knowing your essence, trusting that essence, and then just inviting so much more! It’s about embracing and knowing that you are absolutely perfect and amazing wherever you are and however you are. And that every time you take a  breath it is to say, “Yes, I am enlightened. I am that I am, right here, right now, so in love with myself!” And every time you take that breath of I AM it is to say, “I want to know more of me, I want to love more of me, and I want more of this experience.”

It’s a whole other abundance that is just waiting to come in! The minute you accept it and embrace it, then you go into the next wonderful phase, which is letting it evolve. Letting it expand. You see, that’s what people get caught up in. They think this enlightenment and this ascension thing is a final destination. But even integration isn’t a final destination, so that’s kind of a little thing that we’ll work on now. Which is knowing that the longer you’re here you’ll still be creating more aspects to have fun with the experience. You’re creating new aspects to go and have a different adventure or to deal with things in a different way, but they’re getting created with the foundation of balance and self-love. They’re not being created out of a trauma or being fractured. That’s the difference.

So integration evolves. Everything evolves. You would not be satisfied with being a finite, complete being here in humanity! You guys set up the design that way, but there’s been a bit of resistance to remembering that that’s what it’s going to be like. So it’s wonderful to have your dreams and fantasies about how life can be, because as long as they’re not distracting you or you get lost in
them, they give you that little bit of a pep rally inside of you to say,
“Keep going! Keep going! Keep going! Because I can invite things to be even grander than they are now, but I absolutely love and honor where I am now. I just want more!”
