Different winds come from all directions. Some are clear, some carry dust,
some are cold or hot, fierce gales or gentle breezes. In the same way
sensations arise in the body...
I recently started a new job. It is very repetitive and doesn't require any thoughts. I worked 12 hour shift with barely any thoughts. Just doing it. I didn't get tired, nor annoyed or exited. I got some physical pain, but I didn't find it bad or good for that matter. This is a little glimpse of ever present enlightenment. So I agree with you. We are all enlightened, but only enlightened ones know it :)
I must add, that "conditional enlightenment" is not enough. You need to practice a lot to get unconditional enlightenment and apply it in every aspect of life (most importantly, to help others).
