Achieving Enlightenment

Enlightenment becomes easy to attain when you become self-aware and self-conscious.

????Self-knowledge is the beginning of enlightenment. Knowledge of how to make yourself a better human being along with truly accepting all your good and bad qualities is the beginning of self-acceptance.

????The idea of enlightenment is generally misunderstood as a remote, hard-to-attain state of knowledge and peace. And it is true that the fully matured state of enlightenment is far removed from the typical everyday existence of most people. However, the secret is that the seed of enlightenment is always with us and has always been a part of every moment of our life.

????Enlightenment is self-realization, and whenever we notice the presence of our awareness – that thing inside that is having an experience right now – we are touching our enlightenment. That self-recognition is the starting place of enlightenment, of our true abundant freedom.

????As is your desire, so is your will. As is your will so is your way. As is your way so is your enlightenment. As is your enlightenment and so is your success. This is a true mantra that thoroughly works.

????When we free ourselves at all levels we experience a good life, more peaceful and more vibrant. We have the freedom to make choices and the power of our intentions become stronger.

????Enlightenment is also achieved by practicing calm meditation which is a story we weave together from the thoughts, feelings, and emotions we experience each moment. Yet we live the majority of our lives in the memories of our past and the expectations of the future. Rarely do we live in the purity of the present – the only place that your true self can ever be found.



????Healing is integrating all the separate parts of yourself into one whole human being. It’s important to heal your body outside as well as your from within. When we heal, we let go of all the pain holding us back and this will help in us healing others and this world as well.

Becoming what You Believe

So often, we define ourselves as the roles we play in particular relationships or jobs. For example, the personal roles I’ve played include “I am a father,” “I am a husband,” “I am a doctor,” “I am a writer.”

When we ask ourselves the question, ‘Who am I?’ the natural response is to reach for answers that we can easily access – like the roles we play or the race, or gender, or profession we are. The danger in identifying fully with these roles is that when, for whatever reason, these aspects of our lives – which we have used for so long to identify ourselves and to bring us self-esteem – stop satisfying our needs, we can feel a sense of loss, emptiness, or confusion. Fortunately, there is a timeless way to recapture this connection to our true self: the practice of meditation. Oprah Winfrey goes on to say, “When we dig deeper and begin to unearth our true selves, we open ourselves to a brilliance and strength that can guide our lives to a whole new dimension.”

On Meditation

????Meditation allows us to go deeper and experience our own source. With this experience, we realize that we are not the patterns and eddies of desire and memory that flow and swirl in our consciousness. Although these patterns of desire and memory are the field of our manifestation, we are in fact not these swirling fluctuations of thought. We are the thinker behind the thought, the observer behind the observation, the flow of attention, the flow of awareness, the vast ocean of consciousness.

We spontaneously realize that we have choices and that we can exercise these choices, spontaneously through meditation, we gradually bring harmony, laughter, and love back into our soul and, in the process, rediscover our unconditioned self, which can never really be lost. By gently washing away the stress, tension, fear, and confusion that often accompany one who is at the crossroads, we can regain our connection to a calmer, more peaceful way of loving. And from that moment on, a life filled with joy, harmony, balance, and peace is ours for the asking.

Meditation is one of the best ways to loosen the grip of sticky emotions and connect to our true self, which isn’t limited, angry, or fearful, but is infinite, pure consciousness. Meditation brings us home to the peace of present-moment awareness and gives us an experience of profound relaxation that dissolves fatigue and long-standing stresses and promotes both physical and emotional healing.

The benefits of meditation include:

  • lowered blood pressure and hypertension
  • slower heart rate
  • decreased cholesterol levels
  • reduced production of “stress hormones,” including cortisol and adrenaline
  • more efficient oxygen use by the body
  • increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA
  • improved immune function

Beyond these significant health benefits, the greatest gift of meditation is the sense of calm and inner peace it brings into our daily life. When we close our eyes even in prayer we go beyond the mind’s noisy chatter into an entirely different place: the silence of a mind that is not imprisoned by the past or the future.
