No one is just spouting empty words, except you, and the one in the

Curtis, that Enlightenment means success in the world, with family,
friends, career, finances, and general accomplishment of desires.
Enlightenment by itself means nothing to a householder. Pure
awareness, accompanying waking, sleeping, and dreaming, brings
success. I find it hilarious when I say this, and the three of you

Years ago I stated that we are all enlightened at birth - all we have to
do is realize our own birthright. //There's really nothing anyone can DO
to get into the enlightened state - we are all born with it, but we lose
it very early on due to karmic circumstances. All an individual can
really do is try to provide for themselves the ideal opportunity for the
realization to dawn.
//Rita and I worked hard all our life to get where we are, to be able to
retire with a few bucks in the bank and enjoy life. All our children are
grown up now, so we feel we've done what had to be done.
All along we've done the Work as householders, but w//e know that we are
only going to get as much enlightenment as we are going to get. It's way
too late for us to complain that others have more than we do.
We believe in Life - what it does to you and what you do back. /

when I first got on FFL, claimed enlightenment and done a "Meet the
Enlightened Guy Tour" in Fairfield and cleaned all your wallets out.
