The Self is an experience; Maharishi has pointed the way to get there;
So have many others: The Self could be descibed as 'Christ 
Consciousness' or Buddha Consciousness or Maharishi Consciousness;
Buddha described the Self, as 'Not this and not that...'

When one begins to trust their own experince, more and more;
The part of the Self, the Higher Self gets empowered...
You no longer have to quote so much, but you begin to be spontaneous.
Just like Maharishi is spontaneous.
Just like Martin Luther King, was spontaneous, when he gave his 
remarkable speeches- he was primarily speaking from his heart;
Not repeating dogma, not reading from a tele-prompter; 
Just speaking from a heart fillied with love, and bliss.
Your enlighenment is your's to find;
No one can 'give' it to you...
Really you have to lose all concepts of what you 'think' 
enlightenment is;
Then you can begin to have a quite mind;
And then you can let your heart speak the truth.
So, although Enlighenment is a universal thing;
Your enlightenment is specific to your soul.
And you soul will express itself in it's unique way...
Just like unenlightened ones, are unique.
Enlightened people are just as unique..
