What Exactly Is Enlightenment?

I’ve recently gotten into two different discussions about the definition of enlightenment. Those of us who are on a spiritual path have some idea of what the term means, but when we’re put on the spot to give a clear definition, we find ourselves getting tongue-tied.

I’ll be the first to admit that I had a hard time coming up with a good definition. When a friend asked me what enlightenment is, I had to pause and think about it, and I’m still not sure I gave her a good definition. Well, now I’ve had a little time to think about it.
