When we first consider the possibility of becoming enlightened, we understand enlightenment as some separate form of experience.
We assume that meditation leads to higher and lighter states of being, until finally everything changes somehow from what we normally see and feel to an experience of continual joy and bliss.
But from the viewpoint of the highest realization, whatever we are involved in is already within enlightenment.
Everything is already perfect; not one single imperfect thing exists, no ‘thing’ needs cleaning or developing.
Each form, each specific quality is already complete in being whatever it is, just as it is.
