The path to enlightenment is often called a path because it is a journey through time and space … You don’t simply wake up one day enlightened.
It takes time and dedication to the spiritual path over many years and lifetimes. Everyone is at different stages of enlightenment on the planet. Some are more advanced in areas and some are still in infancy in areas.
Life on earth supports enlightenment through the challenges, tests and trials we are faced with throughout our life.
