    Exactly. People have it in their minds that being enlightened is some mciasytl and elusive thing that you have to dedicate your life to discover, when thats not the case. For some people it may take longer than others, but once you realize what videos like these are saying they make 100% total sense. My analogy is that we are the movie screen in which the movie of life is playing. Dont identify with the content, just stay as the screen watching it all go down in a detached way.
