oh boy... I have heard this many many times and it simply does not 'fit' my own experiences. 'Enlightenment', to me, is something that is not a 'one glove fits all' situation, meaning that there is no set 'rues' or definition - it is a very individual thing.
The past 3 years have been rough as hell for me and my family (we have lost over a dozen loved ones amongst other things). I still have hate and resentment, by choice and I find them very useful at times.
ONe thing abut enlightenment, it is a path, not necessarily a destination - I know I am on the path, as it occurred to me that I do not have to conform to others' definitions or 'normals' - because taht is true fo them and them only... just as what is true for me is for me only.
Just to confuse things even more - I am a scientist and a Christian-Buddhist
