Enlightened Beings Share Their Awakening
What is Enlightenment? How can people reach full Awakening?
There are many different stories of Enlightened people and how they reached Enlightenment.
If you listen to those stories of spiritual awakenings, you will notice that they have a lot in common. Some individuals awaken through repeated spiritual practice, others through intense suffering.
In the end, they share their story of becoming one with their ‘other self’, of how to live in the present, and how to be at one with peace and spiritual wisdom.
How to obtain Enlightenment
When you wish to be rich, who do you follow? Where do you ask? Here it’s the same: study deeply Awakened people. Watch them, study their words. That’s how we observe the wisdom of Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Eckhart Tolle, Osho, Sadhguru, Yogananda, and other great people living here on the planet (and those who passed away a long time ago). There are many people who obtain deep spiritual awakening– some of them a kundalini awakening, some of them through enlightenment.
How not to reach your full Awakening
Well, as hard as it is to explain what Enlightenment is, it’s maybe more efficient to explain what it is not. As I can observe myself and many Awakened people, I see that enlightened beings reach a state of peace, understanding, objective wisdom, alignment with their purpose or a higher power. But a normal modern man has the opposite outcome when looking at his life.
It is simple to explain what Enlightenment is not: Following the Ego, being always right, trying to win in life, being delusional, following the masses instead of the truth, believing in the media and other people’s opinions, ignoring knowledge and truth, laziness to learn who we really are and where we come from. Lies: Lying to yourself and other people. Not reaching into yourself and asking other people ‘what should you do’ instead. Believing blindly in Gurus 🙂
That’s what comes to my mind when I think about the obstacles to enlightenment.
Enlightenment for practitioners
Some of us are reaching Awakening or Enlightenment spontaneously. Most of the people I heard about though, reach it through deep technical spiritual practice.
Pranic breathing, advanced meditation, healing techniques, tai-chi, Yoga, even martial arts, sun-gazing – there are many different practices that can help you get closer to the real you, to become one with the source again (without dying:)
But is it all really necessary to reach Enlightenment? Why some people eat oranges and spinach all their life and die from cancer, and others start their day with a cola and a cheeseburger and live healthy without any issues 🙂
