Do not despair but seek the light that dwells within yourself. Others are quick to give advice or play the part of prophet, but none will take responsibility or can take responsibility for the evolution of another.
This is a deeply personal matter and one that requires thought and contemplation on the part of the individual who seeks enlightenment.
For to be enlightened is a matter of accepting one's own divinity and allowing a light that emanates from a Divine source to come into one's being and transform one's humanness in a way that allows one to be both human and God-like simultaneously.
Both exist side by side, both nurture, and both develop as one allows oneself to be open to more of the Light that comes from Above.
