Having gone through my own enlightenment process and still going through it with new levels, I can relate to this character. I've done what she does by coming home and telling her parents and friends how they can improve their lives whether they want to hear it or not. Though the show makes fun moments like those, it is important insight to learn from what most people go through in these situations. Most newly enlightened tend to be so excited and feel a since of responsibility to change the world that they share what they have learned with others before the recipient is ready to receive. Which can leave them frustrated and feeling alone in this new world. But when you find someone who is ready to understand the insights and teachings it can be a validating accomplishment.
The character not only reminds me of myself but of my friends within spiritual communities and festival scenes. We are able to have gratifying moments of meeting friends who are on similar enlightenment paths within certain communities and festivals. I feel this is where we are able to find others on our wavelength. Otherwise we are met with the people whom this character interacts with in her office; people not understanding or unwilling to change for the betterment of humanity and themselves.
This leaves us frustrated, not wanting to be in typical job situations. Yearning to do more for the planet and with ourselves, but not having the model in which to do it, therefore being looked at as crazy in the process. Welcome to enlightenment! For the real test of enlightenment isn't just the ability to center and find yourself but to hold your own knowingness of true self while others around you aren't.
And this is exactly what HBO has captured in Enlightenment.
