There are three stages of meditation achievement on the enlightenment path. This discourse outlines and describes; the three stages of progression ability or maturity. On the pathway to achieving the final goal of the enlightenment energy state. Reincarnation or wheel of rebirth is explained in the “Tibetan book of the dead“. Enlightenment meditation is a discipline. That can not be avoided by anyone who seeks to escape the wheel of rebirth.
Two Meditation Technique Categories
First category of meditating technique is the diffuse awareness focus. Which includes a whole multitude of diffuse or general techniques. This is the technique where most people will start their meditating career. By definition all diffuse techniques are surface level of ability. In itself all these diffuse techniques will lead nowhere. This is in the context of dissolving yourself out; and becoming released from the wheel of rebirth; by achieving the enlightenment energy state.
Second category is the focused awareness technique of which insight meditation is an example. Basis of the focused technique is to increase energy and dissolve resistance. Until the point is reached where all the resistance has been removed; from the three vehicles of the personality physical, emotional and mental.
Three Stages Meditation for Enlightenment achievement
Presentation on enlightenment path has three stages of meditation achievement; which describes my own experiential process. Even though the detail of the individual experiential process, may be different for each individual meditator. The overall process is the same for us all. These three arbitrary stages of meditation achievement are all described. In the context of practicing continuous meditation. Which is the ability to meditate continuously during our waking life. Only time we are not meditating; is when we are asleep or lying down resting as in an afternoon nap.
During any activity during the day that requires concentration; then we practice resting meditation. Which is twenty percent awareness with meditation going on in the background. As soon as we are free of the material world responsibilities; then we may practice power meditation. Which is a 100% focus of concentration in our meditation. This is to apply the maximum power through our being to dissolve and expand; which is the current potential at that particular point in our spiritual evolution.
Meditation for Enlightenment Speeds up Soul Energy Flow
When you meditate soul energy speeds up. However when you stop meditating soul energy flow slows down. Therefore by continuously holding your awareness within the soul energy flow; at the level of the brow chakra or third eye location. You are practicing what I call common meditation. At this stage of meditation practice soul energy flow; is only speeding up with no slowing down. In summary all three stages of Surface, Deep and Escape are a natural progression; of intensity in soul energy flow strength and power; on the pathway to achieving the enlightenment energy state.
Enlightenment Path Surface Meditation: First Stage of Meditating Ability
First stage is surface meditation. Which can be referred to as brushing off the dust. During this beginner stage a meditator has an awareness; of the flow of energy over the outer surface of the body. Very sadly many meditators remain at this level of function during their whole life time. Thereby failing to penetrate the veil of illusion very deeply at all. It is a stage characterized by slow soul energy flow with high resistance.
During this first stage it is usual to receive; what are called psychic insights. This aspect is what forms the whole basis for the name insight meditation. Consequently this is where you gain the ability to see your own mental and emotional pattern or psyche. In a wider context when compared with what was previously the case. For many this experience is a brutal psychic shock; as it was for me; when I first faced the whole truth about myself.
Continuous Meditation to gain Final Conclusion of Enlightenment
It is during the surface stage of meditation; that an individual needs to gain continuous or common meditating ability. Importantly the easiest way to achieve this; is by doing 10 day meditation courses one after another as often as possible. This is in addition to practicing the meditation exercise; as often as possible; between every meditation sit down session! It is a totally and completely intensive program. However once you gain continuous meditation ability; you will never have to practice another sit down session every again. Unless of course you fail to practice enough to keep and maintain your continuous meditating capability. In which case you would then need to redo sit down sessions once again to regain this ability.
Meditation for Enlightenment is slowed down with Over weight
In passing I will comment upon the over weight physical body. It is by definition an unhealthy state. Over weight is a combination of extra fat cells and poison, toxin deposits with retained water. From a meditation point of view this is extra resistance. So your progress in meditation maturity will be heavier going with greater difficulty to achieve.
If you are really serious about your meditation. Appropriately then you will need to implement a healthy diet. With an exercise program to moderate your weight. It is usual for serious meditators to adopt the two meal a day system with no evening meal. Some meditators will even take this a step further with the one meal per day system.
Long fasting phase every day allows for more efficient metabolism. With greater efficiency of elimination of toxins and poisons. Once started on this stricter dietary program; it will need to be a permanent life time change. Otherwise when going back to the original system. You will put on weight at twice the rate that you did before. Hopefully you will be strong enough to pass through this early stage of meditation, which has a duration of 2 years.
Enlightenment Deep Meditation: Second Stage Meditation Ability
Second stage is deep meditation, which is what I call the heavy lifting. As this is the stage; where the energy flow is becoming stronger and more significant. Therefore it will really penetrate and bite in to dissolve serious resistance. In summary it is during this stage; that the bulk of the dissolving or dissolution will be achieved.
During this phase a meditator becomes aware of energy flowing through the body. Therefore as a natural consequence you will experience; various aches and pains in your body. As it becomes progressively straightened out. Resulting in a more correctly aligned spinal column, with a squaring up of your frame or posture.
Piercing Penetrating and Dissolving Action
Deep meditation is characterized by the piercing, penetrating and dissolving action of energy. Which is at the point or level of your meditation focus within your physical body. Initially this will happen in the head areas; but with the progression of your deep meditation ability. Naturally this dissolving awareness will progressively move down; and dissolve out the sediments within your entire spinal column.
Importantly this clearing out of the sediments and crystallization’s surrounding and permeating the spinal column; is a very important milestone in your meditation achievement or maturity of practice. Which is on the pathway to achieving the enlightenment energy state.
Enlightenment Three Stages Meditation Path Energy resistance balance is Spiritual Status
Energy impacting upon resistance generates friction, which will create heat. This physics action is by definition a painful process. It is with very good reason; that fire is the symbol for transformation. Only energy without resistance will be pain free. It is our energy resistance balance; which determines our spiritual status. Consequently it determines our position on the pathway or scale of human spiritual evolution.
If your meditation is basically pain free when you begin. Then you are either already a very advanced soul with little resistance. Or your meditation is not generating sufficient soul energy flow, to dissolve significant resistance. You really do need to know the difference. Because it is the difference between being in illusion or reality. Duration of this phase is for about twenty years.
Enlightenment Path Escape Meditation: Final step to Enlightenment
Third stage of meditation is escape. It is the stage which begins after the completion; of the dissolving of all the resistances and sediments surrounding and permeating the spinal cord. That has been completed during stage two or deep meditation. It is what I call the home straight.
It has a touch up phase with a final conclusion. Now the meditator has arrived at the point, of being aware of high energy with low resistance. Quite literally a real powerhouse of energy is pouring down from the Oversoul. Our experiential process is now moving within the energy field or pattern. That is full of compassion with loving grace. The duration of this phase is around eight years.
Oversoul only source of power to dissolve ego
Meditation and spiritual development on enlightenment path
Meditation and spiritual enlightenment is the way. Therefore to achieve the energy state; which is no longer functioning on a navel gazing theory level. But a real living finely purified energy state of being. No amount of flapping your gums [commonly called talking], pretty pictures, tattoo’s, religious artifacts or practices. Will ever change your energy state. Admittedly any changes in attitudes from narrow and restricted to wide and holistic will improve your energy state. Intelligently this demonstrates a greater soul influence.
Only the hard work of serious meditation will effect, a significant change in your vibration rate or frequency. Reflecting that the power of the Over soul is the only source; to dissolve the resistance of ego. In comparison with earlier stages, we move through this final stage much more quickly. Only requirement now is to dissolve, last remaining specks of resistance to gain enlightenment. It is at the completion of escape meditation stage three; that you will experience the final dissolution to become enlightened.
In summary it will take the average meditator. Approximately thirty years of continuous meditation practice; to achieve the enlightenment energy state. The earlier in age that you start meditation during an incarnation; then the better chance that you will have to be completely successful on the enlightenment pathway.
Symbol of Souls Journey to Enlightenment energy state
Stupa Symbol is a representation of the souls journey through various lifetimes until enlightenment has been achieved. When there is release from the wheel of rebirth at the top.
Meditating for enlightenment begins with serious practice; it is easier to gain a solid start by participating in group sessions. Because you are held in a stronger group aura.
In summary you will find that your meditations; will be of a longer duration with stronger intensity. When compared with what they would have been meditating alone. Above all after you have achieved; a certain meditating maturity with continuous meditation ability. In conclusion Group meditation is no longer necessary. As your own energy is now strong enough; to sustain itself independently. Now you are well on your way to achieving enlightenment three stages meditation completion.
After reading and studying this post. You can now regard yourself to be a serious esoteric student. Importantly the next step is to practice serious insight meditation! Which is in order to achieve a lighter vibration of being. That will completely transform the pattern of your life!
