We cannot THINK our way to being in a conscious & ‘enlightened state’.
Some notions and ideas – ideologies and philosophies may help sow seeds for expansion or provide permission slips and invitations for more awareness, but ‘enlightenment’ is by its very nature, a ‘connected – knowingness’ beyond the perceived limitations of the mind and the mental.
The MIND is a problem solving entity, whose prime purpose is survival of ‘ME’ – the human personality that is ‘seemingly’ separate to everyone and everything else. The aspect in self-consciousness that can only identify past story as basis for future creation. (Ego – who I think I Am).
The rational mind at its best is a magnificent problem solver, working in tandem with ‘inspiration’ as a tool for creation.
Unfortunately however, the minds ‘reference library’ (programming) is indexed primarily for the survival of Ego (who I think I Am), identification to old story & patterns ( I am my past experience and therefore cannot move beyond it), and great resistance to change is associated with death. (Survival fears).
So, with the minds’ modus operandus’ into survival of the ego – we cannot intellectualise our way to enlightenment. We have to go beyond mind.
We have to EXPERIENCE it with our senses, somatically in the body. (Embodiment) A journey of incremental experiences of enlightened states. Hence the awareness / consciousness / enlightenment journey is a sensory and sensual experience rather than an intellectual one.
We can however, have the willingness of heart / spirit to seek & experience enlightened state.
We can be open to feeling the subtle yet sublime state changes of loving energy raining through our energy fields and witness the alchemy of ‘state of being’ taking place.
We can cultivate trust incrementally, developing wisdom and fortitude to know self on a deeper level, beyond the limited paradigm that we were born into, (the collective-unconscious).
We can developing courage and strength to let go of traumas energies and that which enslave or entangle us to old limitations or stories of unworthiness.
We can develop a propensity to be in the NOW , unattached to past story, without fear of future, as this is the only place that ‘Enlightened State’ can be authentically felt, experienced, (embodied/lived).
We can cultivate a state of GRACE / ALLOWING more awareness & joyful manifestation into our experience.
As we perceive beyond the mind & beyond ego, (there is more to me than this physical body and my perceived limited experience within this body).
As we work transpersonally with subtle energy beyond the physical self.
As we begin to TRUST in our true worthiness beyond blame, shame & guilt.
As we incrementally take back our power by making healthier, self loving choices.
As we savour the awareness and sensuality of reclaiming ENLIGHTENMENT in joyful moments to be savored.
As we begin to recognise that it is a given birth right; to re-claim personal sovereignty, to have knowing of enlightenment and to SELF-ACTUALISE, the full awareness that;
I Am Beloved, I AM Creator, I EXIST, and therefore
