They asked me often, 

“So how would one know they are enlightened?”

To which I answered, 

“The moment you view all people, irrespective of what you may have been through with them, from a place of unconditional love; the moment you view all that is, from the true essence of the creator, the power of creation, from infinite love; and most importantly, the moment you view yourself from the eyes of the creator, from the essence of unconditional love and recognise the divinity within yourself, you will know enlightenment…

You will come to understand that all people, who may have hurt you or may love you, all teach you valuable lessons of the soul. Some in joy and some through challenges. Either way, they help your soul grow and ascend to a higher level of being. 

Therefore all you will know is, love.”
