Enlightment is waking up to who you are as a spiritual being and attaining the state of self love and love for all else. It comes with understanding the duality of this physical environment and knowing that it is temporary. It is gaining control of the physical body and living without its pleasures.

It seems to me that the right question is: Is it possible to be enlightened and have a low consciousness at the same time? If I look at my reality, then the answer is Yes. For example, asking the question "who or what is God?" Is caused by what is inside of you. The knowledge about God and life after death for example. Knowledge that comes naturally, with birth. That is enlightenment. But consciousness is a choice.
There are a lot of enlightened people with low consciousness. People who are aware of God and the afterlife, but when someone misbehaves say that person needs to be punished. Or say that God is something to be feared.
Also look at the ancient Egyptians for example. They were aware of life after death, but they used slaves to get there.
