Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner. ~ Carlos Santana



For most of the years I’ve been on a conscious spiritual path, I’ve been seeking enlightenment—just like almost everyone else I know.

But lately I’ve discovered the truth about enlightenment—we do not need it.


We realize our title is a strange statement, perhaps startling even, for some. A logical question you might have is, “How can I NOT need enlightenment, especially given the seemingly chaotic conditions on our planet today?”

This takes us back to something we’ve been saying for years—you are here to remember who you are.

And so, who are you?

You are God in temporary human form. You’ve heard us say that a lot too.

Now, if you are God, you do not need enlightenment because you already are enlightened. You just forgot.

Now it’s time to remember.

The way to remember is to simply BE. Simply desire only the peace of God. That peace lies deep within you. It has never left you. It’s part of your very being—not your body, but your real identity.

Johnny is a great fan of A Course in Miracles. One of his favorite quotes from the course is Jeshua’s reminder to tell yourself often, “I am not a body. I am free, for I am still as God created me.”

Therefore, your job, your only job, is to seek to see everything and everyone, to love everything and everyone, as God does.

Just BE where and who you are right now. You are already enlightened.

And so it is.


In this video, the great spiritual teacher, Mooji, explains what enlightenment really is. It’s not something you must seek. It’s what you are.
