The eastern spiritual traditions are about finding peace; the western traditions are about passion. By combining BOTH strategies we can expedite our spiritual evolution and increase the quality of our life experience.
In this podcast, I talk about how I unintentionally combined the strategies of the east and west and how that profoundly helped me on my journey to Heaven/Nirvana/Enlightenment.
There is so much crap out there about how difficult
enlightenment is to experience. Some will
say that you have to go many, many lifetimes of suffering before you will reach
it. Those who use the language of Heaven
or Oneness with God pretty much say the same thing that you have to suffer for
many years throughout your life in order to go to heaven.
is too simple for these complex minds to accept, so they ASSUME that it must be
difficult for anyone to experience.
this out many times, such as when he said, “Great is the God that reveals the
truth to babes but hides it from the wise and learned ones.” (Mat 11:25)
All one has
to do is to practice loving whatever thought that comes through their mind, no
matter what it is, easy enough to say but in practice hard to do for so many
life teaches us to be afraid of things in the world so our habit is to think of
those things and react with fear (contraction).
Honesty tells us that our thoughts of things in the world are not the
same thing as the thing itself. If we
are honest with ourselves then we will admit that the thoughts cannot hurt us,
it is only our reactions to the thoughts that cause of harm or negativity.
lots of reasons why the world does not want you to find the Kingdom of Heaven
or Nirvana or Enlightenment or Perfection or whatever you want to call it. It is
to the ruling class’s advantage to keep you suffering so it is easier to
control and manipulate you. But for the
person who is awake enough to see that it is not to their advantage to continue
suffering then ignoring the words of those who have not found enlightenment or
heaven is the best strategy.
