There are things you must consider when committing to your own “Enlightenment” journey. 

In the words of a Hopi elder…

“Where are you living?
What are you doing?
 What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!”

And in my own words: Prepare to have your entire self shattered.  What you see beyond the looking glass will most certainly surprise you.
