Sometimes the unexceptional becomes extraordinary:  gazing into a puddle of water, watching a child run after a puppy, seeing the first butterfly of the season, maybe even hearing the peaceful hum of your computer for the first time. When one becomes unexpectedly caught in a moment, you touch your unvarnished self – your soul. You become a sponge full of wonder with a smile on your face and a heart full of awe.

When you move out of that moment, the charade is over. Maybe you feel your bubble has burst just a bit. You know you are not a perfect being but yet your mind feels so clear you see endless possibilities. Maybe that moment of being completely cocooned in an unexceptional extraordinary moment actually changed your life.

That is how we experience a moment of enlightenment. It hits you without warning – you are not prepared for it. No one expects the unexpected. When it happens you suddenly become comfortable with being completely ordinary and vulnerable.

Practice being vulnerable – it’s an enlightenment magnet.
