To have insight

Meaning, the ability to see or understand something clearly, often sensed by using intuition.
The insightful person eventually becomes enlightened due to his curiosity, open-mindedness and always willing to learn. He can see the world with great clarity, without any attachment to preconceived ideas about people, places, and all things. He is always mindful of himself and the world around him.
To be enlightened, means to be or show a rational, modern, and well-informed outlook into life and the future. That individual is one who is a leader. He understands the nature of suffering. He realizes his duty to help other people. He leads by example, in turn getting people to follow him for who he is and what he stands for (including his family). He is broadminded, knowledgeable, reasonable, wise, intellectual, and literate. He is permanently in love (communicative, understanding, trustful and respectful). We should all aim to, in one way or another, be this sort of individual. The benefits are great in many ways including maintaining a stable lifestyle inclusive of the steadiest relationships and partnerships to be had.

To achieve all these, you just must change your attitude, starting off by living in the present while expanding your understanding of what and who surrounds you. To help you on this journey, I have included ten points that you should consider. Let us do it!
1) Get rid of all the bad habits, so that you may start afresh.
2) Practice mindfulness, so that you can focus on the present, shifting your thoughts on what’s happening right here and now.
3) Apply all your senses (smell, feel, touch, taste and sight) to help you engage with your surroundings.
4) Set aside time every day for pleasure, at least one hour.
5) Let your thoughts flow without judgment, overthinking will prevent you from finding wisdom and mental peace.
6) Express gratitude for everything that you have, get and love in your life.
7) Be kind to yourself and others, you shall then be able to combat negative emotions.
8) Keep an open mind, especially when learning about the world and its people.
9) Find a lesson in your mistakes because it can make you grow and progress.
10) Meditate for at least 10 minutes daily, encouraging great awareness, in turn allowing you to offload all that extra unnecessary cargo that you carry, allowing you to concentrate on reality.

These are the most comprehensive qualities that an enlightened person should possess. These are like a compass guiding you on a spiritual journey, allowing you to create a vision for the path that lies ahead on your journey. With all these on board, you shall live a rich, fulfilled life, as your mind is now clear and free of confusion, permitting you to ride the wave of existence. When you start changing, you might encounter some sort of opposition from your so-called “friends”, like, “you’ve lost your mind and the world”. Do not worry! They could be right, but what they do not know is that you are slowly gaining the universe.
Remember! That only you can enlighten yourself. We are all enlightened, but most of us do not recognize that, so the goal is to simply realize and awaken to the fact.
