What is enlightenment?

Heart Not Head

"Enlightenment is the journey back from the head to the heart. "
 --Ravi Shankar via @SandraSmilovits on Twitter

Ever since my heart vs. head epiphany, I have been trying to get out of my head and into my heart more and more. My friend Loretta sent me this picture to help me out. 

It is a photograph of the drawing Ketut Liyer gives to Elizabeth Gilbert in the movie Eat Pray Love to help her with her practice. It looks a lot like enlightenment to me. 

What does enlightenment look like to you? How do you define it? Send me your picture or definition via the comments, I would love to add it to my collection.
