If you are looking for enlightenment first you must find alignment.
You must understand the balance of the world is in the stability of the earth, the weightlessness of the wind, the freedom of the water, the ruthlessness of fire, and the imperfections of the soul.
You must shed your karmic weight and cast it into the water so you may see that you are both the fool and the world. You know nothing and you know everything.
Then you must find you as someone else. You must understand that someone else is also yourself.
When you fully understand these things then you will see the window, and within which the reflection of your mind. As you open it light surges forth and the reflection disappears.
On the other side you will come across the well.
When you are ready you will climb to the bottom and you will find the vessel.
Reach inside, you will feel connected to many bodies. At first you may feel overwhelmed, but know that you will live many lives. Some lives will build you up and others will wear you down, but it is in their entirety that you will find the balance of your soul.
Once you have chosen a body, you will come across a tree with roots reaching into a pool of water. From the water emits a beautiful light. Submerge yourself in the water and feel the supreme weightlessness of rebirth.
Know that you are greater than yourself.
