Sometimes i feel enlightened.... Sometimes not... Now what to do?

Enlightenment, this word, has many meanings. Probably it means something else for you, but a simple meaning is knowledge of the essence of I.
Knowing that your essential nature is pure witnessing consciousness. The I or person or identity is a mental construct or thought.
The I cannot be enlightened. How can that which is an illusion become enlightened? Enlightenment is destruction of the I, of the person or individual.
It is not a feeling, not any experience. Just being that which you already are.
So if there is still an I, it means there is still darkness. Start self enquiry, it is never too late. The light is within you.
Know that which feels the presence or absence of any experience, including experiencing your pet ideas about enlightenment and the resulting disappointment. What knows its absence? What is witnessing the absence of enlightenment?
