Our Natural Potential:
Beyond Personal Development, The 7 Stages of Enlightenment
Released October 11, 2017,
updated with glossary April 2020:
Our Natural Potential will show you the underlying process and the main stages of enlightenment based on an 8,000-year-old Vedic text. Each stage has its own distinct reality, sense of self and the world. We’ll explore the two aspects required to support a full unfolding and detail the reality of each stage.
Enlightenment is not a goal but rather a platform for living a fuller, richer life well beyond any description. This book will discuss how to culture further development and recognize common symptoms and issues. It will allow you to put spiritual teachings into a broader context.
Be prepared to have some of your concepts about the spiritual journey broken. It’s a far greater potential than most people recognize.

From the Foreword:
“I feel that a few generations from now, people will look back on our era as the beginning of a profound societal transformation. The attainment of higher states of consciousness by a significant percentage of the population will be seen to have been the ultimate source of the solutions to problems which came close to extinguishing most life on earth, including human. Science and spirituality – objective and subjective means of gaining knowledge – will have become two aspects of a unified endeavor.
But for this prediction to be realized, it won’t be enough for people to engage in spiritual practices or for scientists to study them. Those who genuinely attain higher states of consciousness will have to contribute to the development of a clear, systematic, nuanced, and consensual understanding of these states.”
