Enlightenment is effortless - drink, breathe, smile. That's all it takes!

in #advice6 years ago

Enlightenment, or ascension in its other common name, is really effortless. Here are there simple tools that are at your disposal, free and always available, that will give a boost on your path.



  • Water - drink water. Stay hydrated. Water is used by your spiritual body to release blocked emotions. When you drink enough water you allow the natural circulation of emotional and mental debris in and out of your body. It's no wonder that often people dream about water (sea, lakes, rain), since this is a symbol that a cleansing has been taking place during the night time.

Stop now and go drink a big glass of water.



  • Breathing- There are the regular, unnoticed breaths, and there is conscious breathing. Do you remember I was speaking about the power of the now moment and that it's important to plant your awareness in the things that are happening now?! well, it's not easy because the mind tends to escape to the past or the future. But when you take deep breaths, and you are aware that you do so, it's impossible for the thoughts to leave the now moment, just as it is impossible to sneeze with open eyes.

Try this now. Take a deep breath and see for yourself. It's impossible for the thoughts to leave the now moment.



  • Smile - such a simple body mechanism that is so rarely used. When you wear a smile on your face you are automatically transmitting to your mind the message that you are ok, that all is well, that you are satisfied. Even if that is contradicting the outer reality, your mind receives this message and begins to create a corresponding reality! Not only that, the smile sends a clear message to your inner self that you are in a trusting mental attitude. And trust is the key element in allowing enlightenment.

Do it now - smile. Fake it. It can even be a small smile, just like I have on my profile pic. Automatically you will feel better.

These three tools, in case you don't realize yet, are free and always there for you to use. What do you have to lose? Use them! You have no excuse. Don't say "If I had money I'd do some enlightenment"; "If I had more time I'd dedicate myself to ascension". Drink water, wear a smile on your face and breathe.

So simple, so easy, so profound.


March contest is on. Can you interpret the dream?


Enlightenment is always there. Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment. If you breathe in and are aware that you are alive - that you can touch the miracle of being alive - then that is a kind of enlightenment.

It is not by getting out of the world that we become enlightened. But by getting into the world…by getting so tuned in that we can ride the waves of our existence and never get tossed because we become the waves....

Very inspired, and I really like and agree when you say Smile it is a message that we are in good condition. And I also want to say that in our religion Smile is worship or alms. why I say it like that, because the smile gives happy message to others when we smile happy others, when we make other people happy then we have given alms to him. Thank you @nomad-magus

To enjoy our good health, we must first keep our minds in good control and control. If a person can control his mind, then he can find a way to gain knowledge and all his knowledge and qualities will naturally come to him.

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

these 3 things are essential aspects of survival, fighting the world with smile and so much more...

Drink water, wear a smile on your face and breathe.

water has essential benefits over life, most of all it removes toxins from your body...
breathe for you have to do the best...
smile, fight with all your worries with a smile...

Try replacing fight with allow...

We must first keep the mind open, and those around us will have to try to keep them happy, then breathe body and, mind will remain like everything, very beautiful sir, in the picture of your post.

As you are, right here at this moment, is it – effortless enlightenment. There’s no getting anywhere or not getting anywhere. This is what’s meant by the teaching of sudden illumination. Hesitate, and it’s lost; waver and it draws further away.

Being the one to sync with peace really brings you closer to enlightenment, which essentially helps us to see the world from a different perspective.
Clear cut article @nomad-magus, keep up the good work and STEEM ON!!

I just gave it a fake smile, even though your post made me smile anyway when I wondered what would happen if I didn’t drink any water or if I didn’t breath.lol However, that’s what my wife always says “drink a lot of water, even if you don’t want and take a deep breath when we are out on trip deep in the forest, or at the beach”.
Nice simple tools at our disposal!

Wise wife, my friend👍
