Deeper Perception Made Practical

Spiritual Enlightenment List from Rose Rosetree

Enlightenment Life List

Spiritual Enlightenment Life List — Read this and be inspired!

Spiritual Enlightenment Life List. When I first began this blog post, I never dreamed I’d personally move into Enlightenment. Becoming an Enlightenment Teacher. Or, if you prefer, an Enlightenment Coach. But that has happened.

And all along, I’ve continued to maintain this personal Enlightenment Life List. Mine contains names of people whom I consider to have moved into Enlightenment. Not because they are famous or pretty, talented or otherwise amazing as human beings. Or they “Look like somebody in Enlightenment.”

As the Founder of Energy Spirituality, and a teacher of Energetic Literacy, yes! I finally have officially added the title of “Enlightenment Coach.” Researching Enlightenment in public figures of any kind. Mostly through nominations supplied by people like you.

This post contains my running list, begun on Sunday, July 18, 2010. These posts can help you keep track before nominating:

  1. A YouTube Video Explanation of Why I Maintain this List
  2. Discerning Enlightenment
  3. Enlightenment Nominees
  4. Alphabetical Enlightenment List
  5. Moving into Enlightenment, Helped by Energy Spirituality
  6. And this article might be helpful whether you’re in Enlightenment or simply know somebody who’s in Enlightenment. Enlightenment Etiquette was first published on December 10, 2018.

In years to come, see how many other articles are published about this. Could be fun, since many Energy Spirituality firsts have become very popular topics. Definitely, as more people move into Enlightenment, we need to start thinking about good manners regarding conversation between people in Enlightenment and those who aren’t… yet.

Rose Rosetree’s Spiritual Enlightenment Life List

Big disclaimer: What does it mean when I note that a person’s state of consciousness qualifies as living in Enlightenment? Is it an endorsement of that person’s healing services, meditation techniques, or other work? Definitely not. Use your Post-New-Age consumer smarts. Please!

Also note *** I’ve put an asterisk *** by the names of those on the list I have personally met or talked to by phone. “Darshan” is the traditional name for being in the physical presence of a person who lives in Enlightenment. Being an English speaker, I call it “auric modeling.”

  264. December 13, 2019. Ambassador William Taylor, one of the stars of the Trump Impeachment Inquiry imo, also goes onto this list. More Age of Awakening Enlightenment! Blog-Buddy ROSANNA TUFTS nominated him, over at Trump Impeachment Aura Readings.

  268. January 15, 2020. Famed conductor Michael Tilson-Thomas belongs on my Spiritual Enlightenment List! On he goes.
  269. February 13, 2020. It just in time for Valentine’s Day. Blog-Buddy LIANE recommended Dame Maggie Smith for something different — nominating her for an empath at our Celebrity Empaths Flash Contest. Double win! Smith is both an empath and in Age of Awakening Enlightenment.
  270. February 16, 2020. Historian Robert Caro joins this list of spiritual luminaries, nominated by ISABELLA CATES. Well done, ISABELLA!
  271. February 19, 2020. Marcul Lemonis, a star of “The Profit,” was nominated for the Celebrity Empath Flash Contest by ENGINEER JESSE. Surprise, Lemonis is in Enlightenment, as well as an empath.

Got more candidates for this Enlightenment Life List? As time permits, I’ll do a short aura reading for free of each nominee, just to screen, and will respond with a simple YES or NO.

How to Submit a Nomination to Enlightenment Coach, Rose Rosetree

Here is my open invitation to you Blog-Buddies. Any time you have a serious candidate for this list, you are invited to write one or more brief comments with the following info:

  1. To avoid duplicated research, please check out the list of previous nominees. I’ll only research a nominee one time for this list. (Some exceptions will be made, but at my personal discretion only. Thank you for respecting my time.)
  2. Include, please, the nominee’s name and a one-click link to a clear headshot from a straight angle. Yes, a photo, please. Not a link to a YouTube video. Please, please read this article about how to select an appropriate photograph.
  3. And that means ONLY one photo. Not a page of pictures, etc.
  4. Please summarize WHY you are interested.
  5. One nominee per comment, please. And I’d also appreciate if you’d break up extra-long comments, as in the style of this blog.
  6. Remember, even if your nominee doesn’t make it onto Rose Rosetree’s personal Enlightenment Life List, if that person has been a spiritual inspiration to you, keep that inspiration. A person need not be living in Enlightenment to do great work, be mega-talented as a healer or teacher or anything else. Your nominee could still touch your heart, change your life, even be a saint! As an Enlightenment Coach, I simply aim to help spiritual seekers to aim for standards. Energetic Literacy makes that possible for those of us living now.
  7. Finally, regarding your nomination, I request your patience. It takes more time than you might think to do this research, as does maintaining the blog itself. So I save up comments to this post and then go in and spend the hours required to respond. You might want to check back often and comment at other posts, too.

And What Will I Do with Your Nomination?

Here’s my part of the deal. I’ll research and add that name to my Enlightenment Life List, provided that this person DOES show spiritual Enlightenment.

Plus that name will joyfully be added to an Alphabetized version of this list.

Either way, I will definitely add your nominee’s name to the list of those who have been nominated.

In this Age of Awakening, millions of people can move into Enlightenment, and do it with Age of Awakening Enlightenment. This Enlightenment Coach is dedicated to doing her part to help.

    LIVING ON EARTH, I thought your nomination of Joan MacDonald was fascinating.

    And, come to think of it, the quest for catchy headlines and other forms of clickbait may be a significant element in spreading lies on the internet. I wonder, how many simple people can be led to believe that an iPhone is the Joan’s secret for developing the physique of a bodybuilder?

  2. 3502

    Now, relating to your Comment #3500, here’s my best current understanding. It’s not that Prince Charles — or anyone else — actively chooses to live in extreme spiritual addiction.

    Rather, folks use their free will to make mistakes, such as habitually thinking the worst of everyone. Or asking “spirit” to “tell me what to do.” For some in the spotlight, a person might actively choose to “gain lots and lots of power, enough to make up for all I’ve missed.”

  3. 3503

    Besides the personal use of free will, what else is involved in slipping into extreme spiritual addiction?

    The opportunistic astral beings I wrote about in “The New Strong.” (Along with some techniques for protection.)

  4. 3504

    In these early years of the Age of Awakening, it’s easy for various kinds of discarnate spirits to hang out on earth — as they never were able to previously.

    Helping clients and reading auras, I’ve witnessed the emboldening of these entities. And their steady success, so far, at taking people over until the humans are used as puppets.

  5. 3505

    A particularly ugly case is described in my aura reading of Donald Trump this year.

    The astral + human “arrangement” has progressed significantly since my aura reading video, describing Trump’s extreme spiritual addiction in 2016.

  6. 3506

    Astral beings can whisper ideas directly into a person’s subconscious mind.

    Entities promise more fame, more power, more thinness — whatever the person wants most (as shows plainly in that person’s aura, easily read by discarnate spirits). And they’re probably extremely vague about their own role in this.

  7. 3507

    In the model that I’ve constructed, given that I really prefer not to research any model too closely, but just leveling with you, LIVING ON EARTH and other Blog-Buddies….

    A person under the influence of opportunistic entities always has free will. But that person chooses to lie, or to hide, or to surrender more quickly the next time… in exchange for the advice or illusions of wishes to be fulfilled.

  8. 3508

    Thus, I’m attempting here to fine-tune the idea that a person “chooses” extreme spiritual addiction. Rather, the person slips into it, bit by bit.

    And the choices are about accepting favors or special insights. Or becoming more what the “guidance” says will improve chances of success. Maybe akin to insider trading. Only the “company” providing the info is Opportunistic Astral Spirits, Inc.

  9. 3509

    As for moving from spiritual shutdown to extreme spiritual addiction, I’ve witnessed many examples. Here are just a few, backed up by my research as an Enlightenment Coach:

    * Oprah Winfrey

  10. 3510

    * Nicole Kidman
    * Julia Roberts
    * Mike Pence

  11. 3511
    Kylie says:

    Fascinating research, all!

    I have enjoyed watching some of John Green’s youtube video explanations of history, the constitution, etc. How delightful to learn he is living in englightenment.

  12. 3512
    Kylie says:

    Also interesting to learn that people can go from spiritual shutdown to extreme spiritual addiction.

  13. 3513

    KYLIE, it’s great to hear from you.

    That topic of moving directly — do not pass Go — from spiritual shutdown to extreme spiritual addiction? I’ve known about this for so many years.

  14. 3514

    Why write about it? Because of COMMENTS and questions from you Blog-Buddies.

    All of you can help keep the conversation informative, lively, helpful.

  15. 3515
    Living on Earth says:

    Wow… #3501-3510
    I had many Aha!s here Rose thank you!
    The way you explained it makes sense to me. Something finally clicked about that topic.

  16. 3516
    Living on Earth says:

    I just love your clarification of using or not using certain words.

  17. 3517

    So glad to read this, LIVING ON EARTH.

    Sometimes people learn about extreme spiritual addiction and they get scared. I’m not scared. I do what I can to be just knowledgeable enough.

  18. 3518

    And I think it’s helpful for all of you to know the kind of thing we’ve been discussing here. Not ignorant of this problem. But not frightened.

    Simply knowledgeable.

  19. 3519

    If any of you Blog-Buddies do want to understand more about today’s consciousness lifestyles, your best — and most cost-effective resource — is “The New Strong.”

    Beyond that, you might wish to schedule a session with me, just for some mentoring…. plus a personal aura tune-up.

  20. 3520
    Ethan says:

    Rose -in “The New Strong” you talk about how those of us born before the Shift took place have to adjust to the new vibrational rules.

    Those born after do they adjust better-born just knowing? Or do they still need to be knowledgeable about consciousness lifestyles and entities. Thank you:)

  21. 3521

    Funny, ETHAN. People born after the Shift into the Age of Awakening are how old now? Six, at most.

    Why don’t we wait until one of them asks this question at my blog. 😉

  22. 3522

    As for a more serious point… Sometimes my job involves reminding some of you Blog-Buddies that I am not a psychic. Nor a theorist. Religious theorist or conspiracy theorist or futurist, etc.

    Blog-Buddies, I write about what I learn from helping Energy Spirituality clients and students. You know: Co-creating with the Divine, NOT being omniscient. Simply a human being, using skills of Energy READING and Energy HEALING, Empath Empowerment® Coaching and Enlightenment Coaching.

  23. 3523

    So I’ll publish questions like what’s in the last paragraph of that Comment #3520. Rather than simply deleting them, I’ll respond.

    Not aiming to embarrass you ever, ETHAN! Instead, aiming to remind you gently but firmly. Some of you Blog-Buddies have heard a whole lot of theorizing, and believed in it once upon a time. Always wanting more and more, since desire for this kind of theorizing can become unquenchable.

  24. 3524

    Maybe it’s time to graduate from that kind of theorizing. How does it feel to ask such questions?

    That’s an icky kind of good feeling.

  25. 3525

    How about when the authority figure supplies you with answers, what does that feel like?

    Can you recognize a certain habit of contentment? Like, while you sit comfortably and cozily, reading theories that come from where exactly?

  26. 3526

    From a so-confident conspiracy theorist, dressed up like a news broadcaster on Fox cable?

    Or from astral spirits, using a psychic like a ventriloquist’s dummy?

  27. 3527

    I know quite a bit about the latter. Thanks to the DISCERNMENT JAMBOREE about Cutting Cords of Attachment, here at this blog.

    I’ve spent hours deconstructing alleged teachings for removing cords of attachment. Especially appalling: Writings from the fertile, hyper-dramatic imagination of Nicole Lunan. She bills herself as “Master Healer of the Mind, Body, and Spirit Relationship Coach.”

  28. 3528
    Ethan says:

    Thank you Rose for these responses.

    I take this to heart- “Always wanting more and more, since desire for this kind of theorizing can become unquenchable.”.

  29. 3529

    To me, ETHAN, her theories amount to a kind of New Age Energy Healing Porn.

    Just as Doreen Virtue’s work with angels (done before she renounced her work and officially became a “Christian”) amounted to a kind of Angel Porn.

  30. 3530

    Here at this Energy Spirituality community, let’s act and speak responsibly.

    When we aim for “Deeper Perception Made Practical,” let’s seek understanding of what is true. As researched with energetic literacy. And let’s explore what can help us, personally.

  31. 3531

    Overall, let’s resist the temptation to “know everything” about personal growth and spiritual evolution.

    We can’t. Omniscience is God’s job. Learning how to live as stand-up human beings? That’s our job, and imho, that’s plenty.

  32. 3532

    ETHAN, thank you for that Comment #3528. And also for your graciously listening as I do my best to serve as an Enlightenment Teacher.

  33. 3533
    Ethan says:

    This is all learning for me Rose so thank you. I never thought of it that way before.

  34. 3534
    Karina says:

    The question in 3520 seemed more like a curiosity than theorizing. The responses that followed are harsh. They might discourage people from commenting on this Blog.

  35. 3535

    Thanks, ETHAN and KARINA.

    In your case, KARINA, this was your first-time comment here at my blog. (That’s right, isn’t it?) I’d like to respond in some detail on what you’ve just called “harsh.” Although I’ll probably spend more time thoughtfully responding to your criticism than you spent initially reading the exchange above. (Since you don’t seem to have understood it. For instance, if you re-read, you could replace “theories” with your preferred term, “curiosity questions.”)

  36. 3536

    First of all, ETHAN didn’t consider any of this to be harsh. See his Comments #3528 and, later, 3533.

    Later in the day, as it happened, we’d already scheduled an appointment. When we talked in person, ETHAN told me he welcomed the learning opportunity here at my blog.

  37. 3537

    Sometimes you can find other teaching instances like this at “Deeper Perception Made Practical.” They’re the exception, not the rule.

    But I do consider this an educational blog. Folks who comment here regularly have no trouble with that. In fact, they welcome the steady stream of responsible information, given for free, that helps regular readers here with personal growth and spiritual evolution. Yes — perhaps unlike you — they’re regular readers of my blog. Like ETHAN, they’re grateful when my free blog supplies a distinction that could help them significantly on their personal journey.

  38. 3538

    Having worked in mind-body-spirit since 1970, I’ve met many well-meaning people who take a very different approach to mine. Some are life coaches. Others are psychics. Some coach empaths. Others are New Age energy healers. And then come today’s nonduality teachers and other Enlightenment Coaches.

    None of them would likely have exchanges at their blogs like the one that you just deemed “harsh.” More likely, they’ll say “How beautiful. Aren’t you wonderful!” Could it be, you consider that the standard for helping people to evolve spiritually?

  39. 3539

    As an Enlightenment Coach with a serious intent, I am appalled by the lack of standards so prevalent on the internet. And so I run my personal blog in the way that seems right to me.

    If it brings you any consolation, if I strongly object to a comment, I won’t allow it in the first place. A respectful comment like yours? No prob. Of course your words showed up at my blog. Thanks for expressing your personal reaction, even if it happens to be in the minority here.

  40. 3540

    Rep. Devin Nunez will have to wait for tomorrow. Meanwhile, guess what?

    He went from one consciousness lifestyle to extreme spiritual addiction. Can you guess what the earlier one was?

  41. 3541
    Janice says:

    I’ve learned a lot from both parts of this recent exchange!! 🙂

  42. 3542

    JANICE, that’s sweet. And appreciated.

    Not to push you on a gorgeous Saturday morning in metro Washington, D.C., but if you have time I’d be interested to know some of what you learned. And I’ll bet other Blog-Buddies would be interested, too.

  43. 3543
    Janice says:

    I’m sorry the picture of Chelsea Clinton didn’t go through, Rose!

    I actually spent a considerable amount of time finding an appropriate one, so I didn’t forget, it just didn’t make it all the way somehow. 🙂

  44. 3544

    Oh, JANICE. Your contributions here are superb. No worries.

    And just ell me about the frustration and time involved in getting usable pix in the right place! (Haha. You don’t have to.)

  45. 3545
    Oscar Manuel says:

    Wow, once again, I appreciate your research here.

    What fun. Some of the results are surprises to me.

  46. 3546
    Oscar Manuel says:

    Maybe you can tell by my nomination, but I didn’t really expect John Green to be in Enlightenment.

    Well, I’m happy I can enjoy his work more now.

  47. 3547
    Oscar Manuel says:

    Thank you for confirming what I suspected about Elizabeth Gilbert.

    Though for the sake of my reputation, I do want to point out that I did include a photo.. it’s in comment #3405. 😉

  48. 3548
    Oscar Manuel says:

    I hadn’t watched any John Green videos for years when I nominated him. After finding out he’s in Enlightenment, I went back to Youtube to watch some videos. And I’m in love!

    Here is a delightful example video to start.

  49. 3549

    Isn’t it a sweet relief to get “John Green is in Age of Awakening Enlightenment”-type surprises?

    While it’s a more bittersweet relief to have confirmed how much-more-famous Elizabeth Gilbert has been doing.

  50. 3550

    OSCAR, that video sounds like a treat for me later this weekend. Thank you, on behalf of myself and other Blog-Buddies.

  51. 3551

    Yesterday, at the Jim Jordan Aura Reading, I promised to explain why I didn’t plan on devoting a post to his colleage, Rep. Devin Nunes.

    And last night, at Comment #3540, above, I hinted why.

  52. 3552

    Here’s a still shot of Devin Nunes from a video made in 2015.

    I paused it four seconds in. There he was, some four years ago… in spiritual shutdown.

  53. 3553

    By now? Like most Trump-affiliated politicians, Devin Nunes is in extreme spiritual addiction.

    This photo from Newsweek shows it, for instance. If you’ve got Stage 3 Energetic Literacy, and take the time to use it. Devin Nunes has, for a while, shifted into extreme spiritual addiction.

  54. 3554
    Kylie says:

    I would like to propose UK author Richard Roper who wrote a book called “How Not to Die Alone.”

    at first glance he looks quite shiny and happy, but I wonder if it isn’t the too-positive happiness of spiritual addiction.

  55. 3555
    Kylie says:

    I would also like to propose the new German Minister of Defence, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer

    because she looks like she could be a person of integrity and strength who enjoys being of service in her job.

  56. 3556
    Kylie says:

    Also, how about mega-famous author for middle school students, Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series

    because I admire his books and because he looks like someone who is happy in his life, and grateful.

  57. 3557
    Ethan says:

    I’d like to nominate Jennifer Lopez-she recently hosted SNL this past weekend and she was excellent. Recently turning 50 she said in her monologue that the best is yet to come. Rose- as you said how a person looks has nothing to do with their consciousness-how is she doing.

  58. 3558

    Thank you, KYLIE and ETHAN, for these latest nominations. Smart and interesting, as usual for both of you!

    I’ll let a batch accumulate, then get busy… in the distinctive way that this service requires.

  59. 3559
    Janice Hooper says:

    Hello, Rose,
    I would like to nominate some prominent journalists and leaders in journalism.
    As a citizen (of the US), and consumer of news, I’d like to know how they’re doing, consciousness-wise.

  60. 3560
  61. 3561

    Brilliant idea, JANICE HOOPER.

    Thanks, too, for taking the time to find Baron’s photo. Knowing you, I’ll bet it’s a good one.

  62. 3562
    Jennifer says:

    Hi Rose! I would like to nominate Ijeoma Oluo, a writer and speaker who specializes in race and gender issues.

    She’s a real truth teller (her talk is great, highly recommend), and I’d love to do an aura reading on her one day (especially if she’s in Enlightenment!)

  63. 3563
    Jennifer says:

    She can be found giving a talk here:

    and 9:10 is a good spot for aura reading. Thanks!!

  64. 3564

    What a sweet nomination!

    While you await a bunch of nominations so that I can open those many windows all at once (as this process requires), consider this. Especially consider it as somebody in Enlightenment. From a spiritual perspective, everyone in Enlightenment is a really, subtly, powerful truth teller.

  65. 3565

    Commenting now, KYLIE, on your nomination of UK author Richard Roper, complete with excellent photo, in Comment #3554. (Excellent, that is, if you have subscribed online to the New York Times. Otherwise, like me, that photo flickers by and can’t be found. If you can, Blog-Buddies, please right-click on the image and select “Copy image address.” Which is how I got, and can communicate, this one-click link.

    Before I do the research, I’d like to make a teaching point for everyone. (Not aiming to single you out, KYLIE.)

  66. 3566

    About this part of the nomination, “at first glance he looks quite shiny and happy, but I wonder if it isn’t the too-positive happiness of spiritual addiction.”

    Here’s some advice to help all of you gain more clarity in life. “At first glance” means Stage 1 Energetic Literacy. Which is notoriously unreliable. More appropriate for gossiping than for discussing something as grave as a person’s consciousness lifestyle.

    Please, don’t speculate about people’s consciousness lifestyle. Might I recommend? Utilize this free service instead.

    This very blog post, which I’ve re-named as simply “Spiritual Enlightenment List.” (Renaming in order to help more people to find it on the internet.)

  68. 3568

    As for, “I wonder if [he’s in] spiritual addiction.”

    Please don’t speculate like this, either. Avoiding speculation, you can support how I’m doing my best to establish technical terms for consciousness lifestyle into the world. All of you regular commenters (definitely including you, KYLIE) are helping me to do this in a responsible way.

  69. 3569

    Surely you can understand, speculation or even gossiping about consciousness lifestyles… is quite the opposite of helpful for establishing credibility.

    Thanks to all of you who are helping me bring these vital concepts into the world. And do this responsibly.

  70. 3570

    BTW, in case you’re wondering, I do not talk in the manner of [what I’ve quoted here for educational purposes]. If I’m curious about a person’s consciousness lifestyle, I make a mental note to do proper research — as an Enlightenment Coach — during my official Technique Time.

  71. 3571

    Excellent news. Richard Roper goes onto this Spiritual Enlightenment List.

    Thanks, KYLIE!

  72. 3572

    KYLIE, will you score two in a row, with your nomination in Comment #3555 of the new German Minister of Defence, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer.

    Sadly, I find her to be in spiritual shutdown. For now, anyway.

  73. 3573

    What a lovely nomination, KYLIE, in Comment #3556, praising mega-famous author for middle school students, Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series.

    And thank you for finding an excellent research photograph for this nomination.

  74. 3574

    Here I’m adding British politician Jeremy Corbyn.

    He’s in spiritual shutdown.

  75. 3575

    And now for novelist Riordan… he’s in human-based spirituality. Hooray!

    With this consciousness lifestyle, he’s nowhere close to Enlightenment, but doing well on his personal path.

  76. 3576

    Jennifer Lopez is in extreme spiritual addiction, ETHAN. Sorry to all you fans.

    Thank you for sagely noting that consciousness lifestyle doesn’t show in physical appearance.

  77. 3577

    Thanks so much, JANICE, for nominating Washington Post editor Martin Baron in your Comment #3560.

    Definitely close-ish to Enlightenment, seems to me. But for now, living in human-based spirituality.

  78. 3578

    JENNIFER, thank you for nominating (in your Comments #3563-3563) truth-telling Ijeoma Oluo, a writer and speaker who specializes in race and gender issues.

    She’s just a beautiful being, although for now (according to my research) she’s in spiritual addiction.

  79. 3579

    Since I’ve researched Jeremy Corbyn, it’s only fair to research the winner of yesterday’s election in the U.K., Boris Johnson.

    This photo is researchable, if you want to bother. It can be enough to know that he’s in extreme spiritual addiction.

  80. 3580

    Here’s a nomination for Steve Castor, the Republican attorney during the Trump Impeachment Inquiry. Courtesy of Blog-Buddy TRICIA.

    He’s in spiritual shutdown.

  81. 3581

    TRICIA also was curious (as am I) about his counterpart among the Democrats. That would be Daniel Goldman. (To research his aura, I paused the video three seconds in.)

    Lo and behold, another crystal-clear aura infused with Divine presence. Onto the Spiritual Enlightenment List he goes. 🙂

  82. 3582

    Over at that same blog post about the Trump Impeachment Inquiry, ROSANNA TUFTS wanted us to consider the consciousness lifestyle of Ambassador William Taylor. Excellent idea!

    Another American public servant in Age of Awakening Enlightenment. Onto this list he goes!

    Kylie says:

    Thank you Rose for all of this wonderful research!! So nice to see the list growing of American public servants in Age of Awakening Enlightenment.

    And I’m super happy to find that Rick Riordan is in human-based spirituality.

  84. 3584
    Kylie says:

    I will avoid speculation on future nominations!

  85. 3585

    KYLIE, you’re so teachable, and this was learning for many readers here, surely. Thank you.

    I loved that nomination. Isn’t it exciting when somebody you nominate lands on that Spiritual Enlightenment List!

  86. 3586
    Kylie says:

    It is exciting. When I opened the back of the book to look at Richard Roper’s picture I was instantly more interested in taking his book home, because he looked happy and lively in a way that so few authors do. I wondered if he was enlightened.

    Then, reading the book his main character mentions an idea for his office mates to start a “positivity jar” and I thought, uh oh! He believes in “positive thoughts only.”

  87. 3587
    Kylie says:

    As to Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer I saw so many photos of her together with Angela Merkel.

    I had hoped they might share similar consciousness. But you really can’t tell by looking.

  88. 3588
    Kylie says:

    And living in enlightenment is not contagious!

  89. 3589

    Thanks for sharing your previous thought process, KYLIE. One great resource for helping all you Blog-Buddies to think about Enlightenment is one of our (currently) four DISCERNMENT JAMBOREES.

    This one is called “How to Spot Enlightenment.” I recommend it to all of you who are curious about recognizing people in Enlightenment. Prepare for surprises… and ongoing discussion via comments.

  90. 3590
    Jennifer says:

    Darn, that’s disappointing!

    But thank you so much for your time and effort to bring discernment into the world.

  91. 3591

    JENNIFER, what a gracious response.

    I know what you mean about that kind of disappointment.

  92. 3592

    Yet, even in Enlightenment (as you are) one can have many illusions which this sort of research can dispel, and that only helps us to see life more clearly.

    No wonder I encourage you and all readers of this blog to continue nominating people you think, or hope, might be in Enlightenment.

    Rosanna Tufts says:

    I was interested to see what Ambassador Taylor’s chakra databanks have to say about his Integrity.

    Based on his testimony to Congress, he sure looked like one of the most “integritous” (if that’s a word!) people I’ve ever seen.

  94. 3594

    ROSANNA, it’s a word now. 😉

    Glad I could be of service.

  95. 3595
    Leo Watts says:


    I’d like to nominate Bill Belichick, longtime head coach of the New England Patriots, and the most winning NFL head coach of all time.

  96. 3596
  97. 3597

    Delightful idea, LEO. Thank you.

  98. 3598
    Janice Hooper says:

    Rose, thank you for researching Martin Baron.

    Very glad to hear how he is doing.

  99. 3599

    JANICE, you’re welcome. This blog post can satisfy a lot of curiosity and sometimes dispel worry. That’s one of my favorite aspects of providing this service for all you Blog-Buddies.

  100. 3600

    Incidentally, last night I was watching a recorded version of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors.

    In case any of you Blog-Buddies are curious, how is Country Music star Trisha Yearwood doing with consciousness lifestyle?
