Enlightenment refers to the "full comprehension of a situation". It is commonly used to denote the Age of Enlightenment, but is also used in Western cultures in a religious context. It translates several Buddhist terms and concepts, most notably bodhi, kensho and satori. Related terms from Asian religions are moksha in Hinduism and Kevala Jnana in Jainism. In Christianity, the word "enlightenment" is rarely used, except to refer to the Age of Enlightenment and its influence on Christianity. Equivalent terms may be revelation, metanoia and conversion.

Inspirations or timely ideas are just like august visitors that hardly visit, unlike other usual visitors. So, never take them for granted. In other words, recognize, embrace, appreciate, utilize and share them with all and sundry. Note: your timely ideas or inspirations could be a source of encouragement, enlightenment or empowerment to someone right here or out there (mark you). -Emeasoba George
Complete enlightenment COULDN'T possibly be a good thing. Balance is key. Neither dark nor light should win. Humanity only wins through balance .
Ego is like our shadow.... when enlightenment is at its best there is no ego and we live well within ourselves.... however as soon as the sun (of sanity)starts setting our ego starts outgrowing us.
Disease an never be conquered, can never be quelled by emotion's willful screaming or faith's symbolic prayer. It can only be conquered by the energy of humanity and the cunning in the mind of man. In the patience of a Curie, in the enlightenment of a Faraday, a Rutherford, a Pasteur, a Nightingale, and all other apostles of light and cleanliness, rather than of a woebegone godliness, we shall find final deliverance from plague, pestilence, and famine.
Three are the Peaks that everyone must Seek: Achievement, Fulfillment and Enlightenment.
