How To Become Enlightened

“Do not hold enlightenment as the goal of your life, for the person you are seeking to enlighten is the one who is standing in your way. It is your undoing that enlightens you.” — Wisdom from the Greater Community

Now that you’ve read about what is enlightenment, the question surely arises: “How do I become enlightened?” Only Spirit can take you to Spirit. You cannot become enlightened through sheer force of will.  Yes, you can set the stage. Of course you can prepare.  However, this can never take you the whole way.

Enlightenment is about reclaiming your most fundamental relationship and becoming a vehicle for its expression in the world. It is all about relationship. It cannot be done alone. When the time is right your Spirit will move you to undertake a spiritual practice. If it is a true practice and one that is right for you, it will take you to new places. It will prepare you for living the sacred life.

Still think you can do it alone? Have you crafted your own special spiritual practice out of a hodge podge of ideas from various traditions? Be careful here. If you go it alone and do as you feel is best, you’ll stay exactly where you are. Take a chance. Feel your Spirit out. Which practice is closest to your heart?

Humanity has a rich spiritual tradition. There are many genuine spiritual practices to choose from. We are strong advocates for the Steps to Knowledge spiritual practice because it has been especially crafted for the modern individual. It will prepare you for the turbulent times ahead by taking you close to Spirit. Without the burden of religious dogma and the corrupting influence of human history, Steps to Knowledge is a breath of fresh air in a sometimes stale spiritual landscape.

Applying yourself to your practice in a consistent manner will increase your desire and capacity for Spirit. It will create a space within yourself for something new to emerge. Strength and self-honesty is an absolute must here. You must be willing to correct or let go of any behavior standing in your way.  As your Spirit takes you to greater heights it will be natural for you to let such things go, but this can take a very long time.

Like a gardener preparing the grounds for planting season, you are setting the stage for something special to happen. When the conditions within you are right and the world calls out for your gifts, your Spirit will activate you. Like a seed bursting with life, it will begin a great process of inner growth and transformation. You are not in control here. You can only watch in awe and make sure the conditions on the ground stay favorable. An ancient part of you is emerging.

An enlightened person becomes a translator between Heaven and Earth. The world needs your contribution. You are a small but vital part of a very great plan. Enlightenment can no longer be a special state reserved for certain adept individuals. You are reading this because a part of you knows this. A part of you yearns for a greater life. If you seek a happy life of spiritual intoxication, you will merely be strengthening  one more of the mind’s many ambitions. Become a contributor and you will transcend your humanity to help uplift the human race. The choice is clear. Nasi novare coram.

  2. Hi, I don’t know if I have posted anything here before…I have wordpress account of some writings. I have tried to avoid using the word enlightenment simply because it might mean different things to different people. If I said I was fully illuminated, which I am, it describes a state where I am fully connected to the light…quoting Carlos Castenada…he saw the light body fully within the physical one…light the movie 2001, A Space Odessy…”it’s full of light…” As you see, I have had to go and use metaphors in literature and writings to best describe what I have become…have I followed any steps or teachings…have I followed my own inclinations…you can probably say yes…do I share similar states of beings with spiritual masters from the East…I do not know…I have not met anyone who shares similar experiences…this is an entirely a new world we are inhabiting…it seems to me that previous masters have just help set the stage so we who are presently incarnated can help those who follow along these similar pathways…each totally unique and individual…I applaud you efforts…for we are all we have…we are all one …blessings and peace my friend…
