Enlightenment Guide
    #912411 - 09/27/02 03:56 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

As you move through the process of ascension into enlightenment this is a great site to monitor your growth, it contains excerpts from Patanjali Yoga's teachings. There is a series of 34 steps to get a sense of your level of self realization. The meditation i have just recently shared with you will cultivate The View talked about it Buddist Dharma. It might interest you to know that i working on Step 32. This is a very large step and it is required that you are constantly out of your mind. My worldly concerns have faded away now into the illusions that they are as is my normal consciousness following steadily behind it. If you want to have an idea of what this is feeling like for me it is a constant feeling of merging with my surroundings or the inner transparent escense that move through everything, the creator. My body is but a vehicle to expereince that effect. The mind becomes transparent, you come to realize that you have been staring at your mind all your life, the View. Remember your perceptions create your reality however as you cultivate your awareness(proper meditation) the steps in perception of ultimate reality cultivate themselves. If you have ever felt like you were looking at transaparent kind of photograph on mushrooms you were glimpsing the View. From The View all spiritual knowledge and mystical powers emerge. Thats why in CWG he says that you become aware, then you do the things that an aware master does, not the other way around.

The whole trick to mastery is that you have always been looking at it, just not knowing you had it.

Can you describe your meaning of "self confidence" at that level ?

An "enlightenment guide" ? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard.

I once bought an enlightenment guide at a truckstop in Louisiana... I don't think it works. It sucks, I do all the exercises (almost religiously), but I haven't been able to walk on water yet. Whatever, what should I expect from something that costed me only $1.99 plus tax? I have my eye on this REAL enlightenment guide I found at Barnes & Nobles... it costs $64.99. I'm just hoping that phrase "you get what you pay for" pays off. I mean, it will be so cool to walk on water....

MAIA, the moment i step outside at night i am greeted by a shifting, breathing, atomic environment. Everything appears to be fluid, a dreamlike state. My mind becomes transparent, still. It is like a picture infront of myeyes, a hologram like the reflection of water. This demension is appearing more clearly day by day. I feel like in the coming future i will be able to manipulate this scene unfolding in front of me. Last night was the first night i felt kundalini uncoiling from within me, very intense, it was an actual physical sensation i felt in my stomach.

I am generally very peaceful and still now, and i am teaching others to do the same. quiet the outer world, sink peacefully into yourself and great treasures await you.

Hmm, I'm rather wary of "enlightenment guides" usually. There is value within the insights of others but if you must define your experience within the walls of anothers path are you really as enlightened as you think you are? I find it best to absorb others wisdom but to truly carve your OWN path in the rockface, only you and the universe can be your guide to enlightenment.

i so agree with you. People have to start thinking outside of their reality, and see that there's so much more to it all.
