Quote: I am not the first Buddha who came upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time, another Buddha will arise in the world – a Holy One, a Supremely Enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals. — Siddhartha Gautama “The Buddha” (c. 563-483 BC) Nepalese holy man

Comment: When enlightened by facts and inspired by truth, moral stamina and spiritual bravery enliven the urge of evolutionary ascension though the channels of intelligent and conscientious self-direction.

 Enlightenment is relative. For instance: One may experience a sudden coalescing of pieces of the puzzle into a cohesive whole. All the while knowing this new “whole” is yet just another piece.
