What is the path we should take to become enlightened? Here is a summary of what the sages say:
The sages say we should begin the process of finding a way to totally accept the way we are: how we think and how we appear. This is basic and is the first step. The second and last step is to totally accept existence as it is which includes all creatures including humans and the condition of our physical surroundings. The main aid in adopting this two-fold path is a meditation practice. We are not to be waiting for anything to happen. We should live and let live with an attitude of thankfulness.
