An enlightenment is not an insight. It's not a truth or a truism. It doesn't even have to be true. It's a realization you are brought to through The Process and when it dawns on you, you become free to be ways that were previously unavailable to you.

I started making a list of enlightenments that I'd either been taught, or had discovered on my own. After I started making the list, a friend and co-worker asked what I was working on. I read it to her and realized how incredibly bleak it seems when taken out of the context of transformation. So part of enlightenment is when these depressing ideas transform into good news.

The list I made has been entirely supplanted and obviated by my discovery of the Eschatological Laundry List. There was nothing I'd found that wasn't already there.
