When studying Buddhism enlightenment path you will find out, all about the holy eightfold path with the four noble truths. This knowledge is certainly very useful and practical in nature. As it is based on the third ray of active intelligence; which in simple language is called common sense. Particularly so for querents who first step upon the spiritual path; when beginning their journey of discovery in working out how life functions.
“There is no path other than the path which you weave for yourselves. You create your own light, you create your own pattern, you create the stepping stones for your feet, and you create the mud holes in which you so often flounder.” This is an extract from the discourse “the meaning of words” by Lai Yung.
Who is interested in growing spiritually or spiritual development? Well in that case you will need to study diligently the esoteric knowledge; contained within the Peacock group spiritual brotherhood discourses, which begins with an understanding of basic terminology.
Simple spiritual understanding comes to all who gain maturity with insight meditation practice on the pathway to the non reactive surrender state of nirvana.
When walking along a path, it is wise to have some idea of where we are headed and why? In life we only have two directions to choose from, which is either a circle or straight up. In other words would be to say enjoy the illusion or escape it. Serious meditation is the straight up path, which is what I call the one and only escape hatch.
Meditation enlightened is a demonstration that energy follows thought. Meditating is a form of conscious energy breathing. Energy of the oversoul is cold, soft, relentless, stretching, resilient and flexible. By comparison the resistance of ego is hot, hard, brittle and inflexible. During the meditation the increased flow of energy will cause an expansion phase; which the crystallization of ego resists. When a person meditates soul energy is impacting upon and dissolving resistance, which leads to an expansion in awareness or consciousness.
Suicide is not only an illusion of escape; it will also delay your spiritual evolution. Message for all who choose to act only as individuals; because they know everything. Perhaps in some cases there may be thoughts of suicide; which is a natural consequence for the isolationist approach. Choosing this path is such a very unwise life choice. Furthermore the following presentation is a clear and complete explanation; for the only valid or wholesome way to escape illusion.
Choice between spiritual entertainment and serious spiritual development is the discipline; of applying the steps of purification to change energy state.
Spiritual entertainment does provide a very valuable service to the community; in that it brings the seeds of awareness.
First time you sit still to meditate is the first moment when the choice has been made to select against the ego or personality in order to promote your own evolution of spiritual consciousness!
As the evolution of spiritual consciousness is resisted by the personality or ego; the net result is that all average humanity who are ruled by their ego’s are entrapped within a prison. Insight meditation or serious meditation is a direct comparison to many of the superficial forms of meditation that are available today.
Pattern of meditation awareness There are essentially two choices in how you choose to focus your awareness during meditation practice. Firstly is the technique taught by Goenka; which is to follow your awareness over a gross sensation area until you feel subtle sensations. When you then move your awareness further on. The second way is to hold your awareness on an area with subtle sensations and when they stop changing; you then move your awareness on.
Losers have excuses and winners have solutions is a direct demonstration of spiritual law application. People who break spiritual laws will suffer; the inevitable karmic consequences with pain and suffering experience. They will complain bitterly. Obviously they belong to the loser group. By comparison the people who study the spiritual laws; accordingly choosing to live within the spiritual framework. Will avoid serious karmic consequences so they will have happier more contented lives. Obviously these more enlightened individuals will belong to the winners group.
Meditation is defined as the conscious or awareness process of increasing energy while dissolving resistance. As the level of energy increases; there is a co-responding reduction in the level of resistance. Consequently awareness will rise. Gaining maturity in meditation practice is the only way to achieve a completely conscious life. This means that you come to know and understand how life works!
