Enlightenment path outlines and describes; the three stages of meditation achievement, progression or maturity. On the pathway to achieving final goal of enlightenment. Reincarnation or wheel of rebirth is explained in the “Tibetan book of the dead“.
Enlightenment three stages of meditation achievement
Presentation on enlightenment describes my own experiential process. Even though the detail may be different for each individual meditator. Overall process is the same for us all. Three arbitrary stages of meditation achievement are all described. In context of practicing continuous meditation.
When you meditate soul energy speeds up. However when you stop meditating soul energy flow slows down. 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. All three stages of Surface, Deep and Escape are a natural progression; of intensity in soul energy flow strength and power.
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 represented 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.
In passing I will comment upon the overweight physical body. It is by definition is an unhealthy state. Overweight 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 serious about your meditation. Appropriately 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.
Second stage is deep meditation, which 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. It is at 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. 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.
Energy impacting upon resistance generates friction, which will create heat. This physics 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.
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 eight years.
Third stage of meditation is escape. 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.
Therefore consequently you are 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 artefacts 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 Oversoul 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.
Enlightenment energy state
Definition insight meditation
Insight meditation is the conscious process of increasing energy from the Oversoul. In other words it facilitates the movement, from the ego [personality] contracted state into the expansion of soul. Enlightenment is a natural progression created with continual meditation practice. Over all this process is exactly the same for every individual in incarnation.
Especially relevant is that the experiential process. Is different and unique for each particular meditator. Furthermore this is because the resistance pattern within each individual is different. As a result of the ego’s being different then so too when the increased soul flow energy impacts. It will create a different dissolving experiential process. Beginning with the study of spiritual science correctly. You will increase your energy state or spiritual awareness.
All serious esoteric students would be wise to read and study. Every healing and meditation article contained on this website. Until a holistic picture forms within the mind. After this point is achieved. Importantly you will no longer need any more theory. All you need to do now is implement the steps of purification to see for yourself. Achieving the wisdom of you own direct experience.
Especially relevant aspect of Insight Meditation is that soul energy flow is increasing; while resistance is decreasing. Consequently when taken to its final conclusion. This fact alone leads to the natural law physics energy state of enlightenment.
Our focus of perception may remain on the surface levels with discussion. Perpetuating endless cycles of contraction consequences with pain and suffering experience. Demonstrating the passion elimination symptoms, with their associated reactive aggressive behaviors. Perhaps we may choose to move onto a little bit deeper level by stopping the discussion. Being stimulated into action an energy level with serious meditation practice.
Hence with increased energy through our being. We will move on an inner level into expansion with its natural consequences. Especially relevant is the demonstration of compassion qualities; with their associated responsive non aggressive behaviors.
Discussion needs to be enacted upon
Discussion is only useful in the aspect of providing an idea. That needs to be enacted upon. Who will take their first steps of moving out of the glamour of illusion or the dream into reality? What is required is the strength and motivation. Above all to face the truth. Of what is within without fear or distortion by emotion.
Especially noteworthy is that the ego likes to keep the entity entrapped in illusion. Perpetrating and maintaining its position of power. Rather than seeing the truth of the divine spark of divinity within. Perception barrier is only a mirage. Which needs to be moved through.
Secondary consequence of increasing energy to dissolve resistance. Is to gain the ability to see clearly. Which is firstly in yourself and then in everyone else around you. Usually this is referred to as clairvoyant sight or vision. It is simply the gaining of ability to see in a wider spectrum of energies. In other words it is called the opening of the third eye.
Symbol of Souls Journey
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.
When beginning serious meditation it is easier to gain a solid start by participating in group meditation sessions. Because you are held in a stronger group aura.
In conclusion 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 meditation maturity with continuous meditation ability. Group meditation is no longer necessary. As your own energy is now strong enough to sustain itself independently.
