Changes With Enlightenment

When we awaken, one of things many are surprised by is how ordinary and normal it is. How did I not get this simplicity sooner? It often changes little about our outer life as the primary shift is deep within – who we recognize ourselves as being.

For some, there can also be outer changes that come before or after the shift due to karma completing or shifts in life cycles. But for many, life just continues as before. The same goodness and struggles but now from a new perspective.

Here, for example, I was surprised how normal and ordinary … Continue Reading…

Energetic Embodiment

In some teachings, the kundalini or energy process dominates. It is seen that awakening kundalini  opens and rises, leading to awakening. They may prescribe techniques to encourage or even push the energy along. This can be quite hazardous and can make the process much rougher.

However, the deeper problem with a kundalini emphasis is that kundalini is not causal. It is the energetic process that results from the process in consciousness and will unfold in the body naturally when it is ready.

I explored some of the variations in the energy process here.

In a similar way, some teachings … Continue Reading…

Further Stages?

This post is more speculative as it’s something newly unfolding that is incomplete and I don’t know of other references yet.

As a being, we experience life from here. Our point from which we view the world is stable. Even if we “astral travel” or move within dreams or consciousness or become infinite, we still come back to this point, these senses in this body. We could say our experience is tethered here.

From a perspective of universal consciousness, Self is aware of itself both globally and at every point within itself. When we’re awake, we … Continue Reading…

Degrees of Presence

Seems I’m on a scales thing these days…

While everything we experience originates in the dynamics of consciousness, how much of that is embodied in form varies widely.

For example, simple objects like rocks are largely inert. But some rocks like gemstones can express a surprising amount of presence. Note that this is distinct from the laws of nature or qualities of a stone. A stone can have very distinct, strong qualities. But some rare stones take that to another level. The presence amplifies the qualities and makes it seem almost alive.

Also, objects can carry energy from their environments, such … Continue Reading…

Melting the Body

I spoke recently about liberating the person. This is a stage well after we have liberated the soul and woken up to our universal nature. As we grow into our universal nature, there is an unfolding embodiment, a descent of the divine into form. How effective that is depends on how able we are to support it. What that means varies some by person.

We gradually come to see the body as cosmic. As that becomes progressively embodied and the physiology gradually adapts to sustaining that presence, we find a refinement even of the surface physical form.

The … Continue Reading…
