(Feeling) Enlightened

Traveling through time and
space, certain the world
as I see it is real, I
miss signposts along the
way leading to

Perceived reality in the
quest for enlightenment
isn’t about doing or
having or being
better than someone

It’s not about
doing or
being or
at all.

Feeling enlightened just is.

Feeling enlightened is a
a feeling,
a spark of light.
Knowledge I’m not looking for
but know when I find it.
