There have been many 'Enlightened' people on the planet. However there is a difference between 'Enlightenment' and being awake. 'Enlightened' masters speak from their Design. It does not mean that they know who YOU are. Very often they assume that their way can be applied to everyone else. This is not the case. For instance, Ekhart Tolle speaks of 'being in the now' as a way to become enlightened. This will not be of any use to those who have a defined solar plexus and who experience life through the filter of emotional waves.
Human Design can lead you to awaken to your own specific differentiated being. Each one of us is designed to see ONLY what we can see. In operating according to your own strategy and authority there is nothing and no one that can be a higher authority to you. Yes, there are forces that are more powerful than us, but the ultimate decision-making comes from within each one of us. Giving up our own authority in favour of something outside of ourselves is a deep sickness in humanity.
Human Design can lead you to awaken to yourself, after which many so-called spiritual 'truths' become irrelevant. They are known by direct experience, if they are true and the immense propaganda that surrounds spiritual growth can be seen to be simply another form of false conditioning that robs us of the opportunity to live our lives as our-self.
