It is said that the world we live in is an illusion with a thin veil that separates this illusion from the dimension of the soul.
Enlightenment is a state of awareness where we can see that illusion for what it is.
On my journey to that state I like to consider my soul a guest of my body in this illusory world. And as a guest the soul may want to show the body gratitude, consideration, and appreciation.
See how it feels.
