Enlightenment can be a momentary experience that lasts a lifetime. However, there are those (mostly in India) and I met a Christian woman who managed to remain in a state of enlightenment (god intoxication if one wishes to call it that) at all times.
The women I met in Oakland had a remarkable story to share as she had been a pastor who went in for a minor surgery where they accidentally amputated both of her legs. She had been a tall statuesque woman who woke to discover her legs missing and began screaming out to god, WHY? Whereupon, she had a flashback to a previous life where she had lost her legs and had become very bitter. Prior to dying in that life she wished to correct her attitude and have a similar experience in her present life. Being a devout Christian she also found herself in the presence of Christ for days on end during her remarkable rapid healing process. When someone went up to her to offer sympathy she stopped them and let them know that her situation was a great gift as it allowed her to remain in Christ's presence and develop humility. Recovered after her surgery, wearing prosectics, she would walked down the center of the church isle during the procession to give her sermon. He congregation were often in tears at how courageous she was during her slow progress down the isle. Her sermons were divinely inspired as she was literally in the presence of Christ which allowed the transmission of Christ's vibrational frequency directly to her congregation. She truly was an amazing testimony of how Christ can change one's life. Her story of past reincarnation and how it replayed itself out in her current day life was a memorable personal testimony of a multi-dimensional reality that exists for those who chose to know the truth of their existence.
