People can be enlightened at any time and at any stage in their lives. They just have to be willing to accept it when a window of opportunity opens up. It is a gift when a person feels enlightened. When a person wishes to deliver enlightenment it is usually one who truly loves and respects the person wise and worthwhile enough to receive it. Enlightenment isn't always welcomed and can make things worse at times, especially when family is involved. Families tend to shy and wrestle away from enlightenment and stick their heads in the sand and say "Oh that's just the way so-and-so is." Or the family walks around on eggshells not wanting to upset anyone as to create unwanted wars. In order for families to heal well and give them new wings they need to communicate to mend old wounds. Yes, we might feel weepy... a good look at oneself isn't easy. It might feel like things are worse for a while and we feel like withdrawing although in the end a weight can be lifted and life can be enjoyed once again.
This is my sanity prayer or mantra. Its given me wings when life feels wrong and I feel like a wreck:
grant me the serenity to accept
the things I cannot change
the courage to change
the things I can and
the wisdom to know
