People are afraid of Real Faith in God alone, and the reason is because Real Faith in God means total surrender of separate self (ego) and accepting (Ultimately Realizing) the Mysterious Freedom in the absence of ego. Self exists before any form of ego can become active, and to live an Enbrightened life one must live through Eternal Self and surrender the life of ego self (separate self). This requires Faith in that which Is egoless, it requires Faith in the Transcendent Consciousness living Every aspect of the individual’s life, and it requires devotion – through Real Faith in God Alone – to returning to Transcendent Self in Every moment in order to completely and entirely pass through (final) ego death.
Real Faith in God Alone enables the body/mind’s state to turn unto the Transcendent Reality of Consciousness. It enables a person to live Through That (egoless) Consciousness while the activity of ego is undermined by this Very Relationship (through God with all) that is supported by reiterating the life of Enbrightenment. In other words, as a person consciously remembers to live and relate with all through the Eternal One the egoic activity of mind is purged and nullified. But, the fear that must be faced, the fear of death that must be faced is often too much for most egoically bound people to embrace and ultimately consciously transcend. This fear leads people with hearts yearning for God and Truth to accept the ego as something necessary and/or inherent in living a spiritual life. The ego then becomes something a person must live with, and the ego somehow serves God and God’s will. This allows for a separate self (ego self) to remain and the individual to keep relating to all through the false sense of Self, which is manifested through ego life.
There is an argument for some kind of functionary reason for the ego, but that clinging onto a separate self is just more ego; a false sense of self. God is fully capable of brushing teeth, wiping the butt, taking showers, driving cars, operating heavy machinery, and so on. God is fully capable of creativity and expressing that in an individual's life; more so than any version of ego self. Real Faith does not need or seek Any Kind of personal self, True Realization reveals clearly that there is no Real separative self, NOT ANY Form.
It does not take an idea for Real Self to exist, Self exists prior to Any manifestation of existence, and much more than Any idea of a separative self. To live from ego is to live from a tiny box (to live in a self created tower of Babblon - building up vast information - extensions of separative self - to reach God Realization). To live through God Only is to Live in Freedom, Perfect Faith in God and God's Will, and living in the absence of fear and of seeking or supporting separate self.
All Is Spiritual, ego is not real and a figment of the imagination, thus we can talk about it (ego) all day, but there is nothing going on in these talks or examinations that will make ego real. Ego is something added to life that has no grounds for actual existence. People add ego to life in order to make sense of it. Attempting to make sense of life is just more seeking. God is what makes sense, there isn't any examination necessary for this to be Realized.
Tell me how long an ego lasts in which it is not appearing to change or add things on or take things away? Not even a picosecond (One trillionth of a second) would pass by without there being some kind of fluctuation in the egoic sense of self, thus, ego self never lasts and never actually comes into existence.
Self Is Identity. Ego is an attempt of the body/mind to seek identity because of the false sense of self that seems to be manifest (which is simply based on a bodily experience of life), and based on the impossibility of actually knowing what the ego ‘IS’ the mind simply makes up what ego ‘IS’ through life experiences and so on (whatever type of ego society currently accepts). However, ego is not anything. So, saying ego is a part of the Divine is nonsense. Spirituality is simply a life absent of ego, lived through that which is egoless. Any attempts to justify ego as something necessary or real are all futile.
The spiritual ego is a trendy concept that modern man and woman find comfort with. This concept allows for many truths, for everyone to have their own truth, and it says truth is different for all. The spiritual ego is an attempt of ego to live forever in some world or paradise, it is an attempt to become personally Realized. The spiritual ego is born from trying to cling onto some kind of soul that lives forever.
There aren't any forms of bodily life that are everlasting. Furthermore, at what possible point can/does ego spontaneously become something real (out of nothing)? It doesn't, it just feels like the knot of stuff in the brain (like a ball of rubber bands) serves as one's sense of self, and it seems to help with getting things done in life, especially sense it is totally foreign territory for a person living and relating through ego to live and relate consciously through that which is empty of ego (empty of personal self).
Truly, it is not like a person will disappear, stop existing, or somehow enter physical death if they live without ego. All fear based assumptions because one does not feel comfortable living in the absence of ego. It seems like one would cease to exist if ego is absent. This is simply the fear of no self; thus, attachment to any kind of (conscious sense of) self that seems to work becomes necessary, and even more delusionary is the spiritual ego claims to have a spark of God inside it.
Ego claims to have God inside, and can somehow reach God and become like God. All delusion. There isn't any room for two “me’s”. A person can't serve ego AND God simultaneously. Ego and God do not exist together in a world side by side. God is egoless Life. The funny thing Is, 'that there is Only God' and ego is no more real than “invisible pink flying spaghetti monsters with iphones”.
Ego is not a thing, it is not alive, and it is not a component of God. Ego serves zero purpose, seriously, and in All honesty. Ego is the living state of death. Ego is a false paradigm, it is a pseudo view of Reality, and it is based on a person seeking identity. Ego seeks any identity that serves what it is the ego is seeking. True Self does not seek in any Way. Ego is the activity of seeking, seeking that which serves the (delusional) life of ego, and ego takes on whatever kind of identifying qualities that support the material things in life ego seeks. For example, a person seeking power would gear their life to achieve the power(s) they seek, thus, taking on the kind of identity that would make it easier to achieve the power (ex: a politician).
The idea that ego is somehow part of Reality or is a necessary function of life is wrong. This is an old excuse that is really just a plea to hang on to the egoic life; as if a person will walk into the street and get hit by a car or fall off a cliff if the ego is absent (from the steering wheel of the body/mind). The excuse for keeping ego around is a fear based assertion that presumes God is not fully capable of living an individual. It assumes that ego is needed to prevent people from all sorts of mistakes that would happen in the absence of ego. However, ego itself is a mistake of identity. So, ego is nothing, it does not exist, and it has no real function that serves God Realization.
Consider the idea that someone may say, 'being free of ego bondage' somehow means that ego is still there because it apparently has not 'fall away entirely'. This is a delusion, ego bondage is present until ego death (total ego death). One may break the cycle of ego with Self Realization (which is necessary for Any Real spiritual growth), interrupt the pattern of ego with Self Realization, but, one does not stop ego's appearance in certain relationships or experiences until Self Realization has integrated itself into Every corner of the body/mind's life. Thus, whole body Realization is the Way, and not just some kind of mental noticing or recognizing of the 'transcendent feature' of reality while continuing as one was, which is living and relating to one and all (including animals) as a separate self.
The ego is a state of conditioning that takes time and separative self surrender unto the Transcendent Consciousness (of Existence – of God ItSelf) for it to no longer manifest (at all), and as long as the individual continues to return unto living and relating through the True Self the process of ego death progresses.
So, the Whole body/mind must be purged of the egoic conditioning that patterns great suffering (and illusion and delusion) in a person's life. The body/mind (which is inherently a conditional creature) is not Free just because one has Realized Real Self (the other day or had some kind of experience of the transcendental light of reality) - Real Self is bodiless yet it identifies As body/mind. It takes more than an experience that gives the individual a glimpse of the Divine Light of Reality to purge the ego completely, it takes more than just one day mentally understanding the emptiness of ego to become empty of ego entirely, and it takes more to Transform the whole body/mind than just a passing fantasy of verbally and mentally ‘believing’ in God.
Real Self provides the (one and Only) eternal condition of freedom from ego self, and a person must learn to live life through Real Self in order for ego to progressively pass away entirely. Real Self is not in need of anything, and as a person progressively surrenders the entire of one's existence (total and complete - leaving nothing untouched by the Divine Transformation of Realization) the ego finds less and less of a field of consciousness (a body/mind) that is accepting to its activity.
Ego has nothing to do with Reality and/or that which Is Real. Ego is the living absence of Realness of Self. Ego is a totally fake identity that is not correlated with God, Truth, and/or Realization in any meaningful way. Ego is no more Real than an ‘invisible pink flying spaghetti monster with an iPhone’. God Is the Only Real.
The Spiritual Cross is a generalized term for the sum total of esoteric consciousness in the body/mind. This includes the traditional concepts of the kundalini (and associated currents), chakras, power center at back/base of head (located in area of medulla-oblongata), and the descending current/flow along the front of the body. However, the Spiritual Cross also includes the left and right hearts which are on each side of the central heart chakra.
Furthermore, the right heart is the seat of what is called the Resurrection Current within the Spiritual Cross, and it extends from the right heart into the eye and into the crown star above the head; and from this begins the transformation of the Spiritual Cross, which is free of ego (totally) at this point in the process of Enbrightenment (or in stage 3, also called the Resurrection stage).
The Spiritual Cross is the science of God Realization, and the Spiritual Cross is the Same for all. This is one reason one can think of the Spiritual Cross in terms of a science, and not just some unverifiable abstract reference to something that cannot be verified either subjectively or objectively by anyone else.
As the fullness of the Spiritual Cross comes to life it follows a path of growth and maturity, with more and more of the Spiritual Cross freely flowing and functioning in the (progressive) absence of ego. The awakening and manifest appearance of the Spiritual Cross can be correlated with the progressive death of ego and transformation of the whole body/mind (including the spiritual Cross) to shine and live freely from the Divine seat of all consciousness, which is a process that surrenders the whole body/mind unto God leaving no trace of a personal or separate self (ego).
This side of God Realization (Enbrightenment) discusses the progressive growth, maturity, awakening, and realization of the Spiritual Cross (and associated processes) that manifests (progressively and over-time) in parallel with ego death.
However, Real Self Realization, or God Realization, is an always inherent and eternal presence of Being and existence that does not require or progress through any type of changes or maturity. Fundamentally in Enbrightenment, Self Realization is necessary for any genuine spiritual awakening or realization.
The Self (True God) is a necessary component for spiritual growth, but Self ItSelf is free of any bodily changes that occur due to a person's progressive surrender of the body/mind unto the Eternal One. True Enbrightenment does not see the body as separate or other than, even further the Transcendent One identifies with the body/mind, but in order for this to manifest freely it has to happen in the absence of ego (separate self).
Self Realization breaks the cycle of ego self, but it takes whole bodily realization in order for the conditioning of ego to surrender its grip on the body/mind; total ego death. Self is 'always already the case' (Avatar Adi Da), but the body/mind must pass through the divine fires of God in order for Real Self to live freely, that is live in the absence of an individual's attachment to separate self. One is either possessed by ego (separate self) or by the Divine and Eternal Reality of God ItSelf.
It is the individual's attachment to separate self that 'possesses'. The Spiritual Cross is not something out of reach of the ego, so to speak. In truth, ego attempts to control or bring a yoke upon the various parts of the Spiritual Cross it may notice, all to serve the ego life of course. Consequently, the Spiritual Cross is for the Divine Brightness of Reality ItSelf to live through and relate to all through. Thus, it is not uncommon to find a person whom can manipulate or influence some part of the Spiritual Cross (through ego) and pretend to be doing something spiritual or enlightening (but FAR from Enbrightening) to another or their self.
So, in the play of the individual's attachment to separate self and the awakening of the True Self, in terms of a freedom that is egoless - not a personal self, the whole spiritual journey takes place which then reveals spontaneously (in various moments) the Spiritual Cross and beyond. True God is egoless Consciousness, which is Perpetually Transcendent of existence itself, and True God is the Only Way a person passes through the whole process of realizing the Spiritual Cross, and an egoless body/mind is ultimately Overwhelmed by the Divine Brightness of God (in stage 3 of Enbrightenment).
Do I look happy? How would you know?
Enbrightenment is not a religion.
If you meet me in person, you would not have a clue Who I Am unless there Is Heart Communion, not just your chakras feeling weird or maybe you noticed some kind of energy manifesting somewhere within the body/mind (through the Spiritual Cross) while you happened to notice me sitting around.
If you meet me in person and are not Heart Attracted Instantly to me then you will relate to me like you do everyone else, ego based and ego bound, as you have with everyone your whole life (as separate and other than).
I look like everyone else when the ego is your eye.
No one can turn Enbrightenment into a ego possessed religion, it is not possible. When people try to project their past experiences with churches, priest and preachers onto me you will become frustrated.
You cannot Notice the Divine Heart~Fire when around me by relating to me on the basis of separate self.
I Serve the Real and True Devotees of God ItSelf; the people that are truly whole bodily surrendered unto God: there-by making one self available to a Genuine Heart Transmission from a True God Realizer (which happens to be in your face).
Thus, for those that are Actually Devoted to Real God, not ego god, meeting me in person will Confirm my Testament and Transform those hungry for Truth Realization.
"think these comments are rude or inconsiderate?" So what? I'm not a people petter, I'm not going to be sure and be nice all the time so as not to offend the herd (for most if not all - this is a turn off right away when considering Enbrightenment). If you are looking for that in me or Enbrightenment itself you are at the wrong website.
The world is filled with churches (religions), pseudo spirituality, even people petting social networks are forming on facebook, google and so on, not to mention the people petting website called 'spiritualnetworks - . - com', and if that is what you want, a nice fluffy religion (or pseudo spirituality) with no real depth then its time to stop reading here and move along. Enbrightenment will seem like a confrontation if you attempt to relate through the ego.
Enbrightenment does not depend on hordes of devotees with plastic smiles and fake devotion to God. You can't tithe your way into riches or wealth or happiness or Enbrightenment.
Want to truly grow Spiritually? Then forsake personal/separate self (ego) right now and forever for the Divine Brightness that Transcends existence itself. Next, surrender your whole existence unto God ItSelf, and the Heart of Reality ItSelf will Dawn and Transform you completely, absolutely: and the Only thing stopping this from happening is yourself (ego). Then you Will Notice, Recognize, and Ultimately Identify with me for Who I Am, which Is Truly and Simply you.
God is not for sale. Thus, you can't consider the relationship of the body/mind with the Transcendent One (or the Spiritual Cross and God - and not that God is separate from the body or other than the body, they Are One) something that can be acquired or achieved, and/or given from one person to another. The (spiritual) ego dreams up all sorts of ways to influence and control the Divine anatomy of God within the human.
Ego tends to seek life experiences of pleasure and happiness through any means possible. The Spiritual Cross (esoteric anatomy of consciousness) is one of the forms of life that (pseudo spiritual) ego turns to in order to serve its (pseudo spiritual) agenda. Be extremely careful with who you turn to in Spiritual practice, there are many voices out there calling you over to listen to their story and give you reasons why you should allow them to manipulate and/or influence/control your chakras, kundalini, and so on.
There are many frauds out there that become possessed by this and that, and they claim some kind of knowledge you do not have access to unless you go through them. It's a scam plain and simple. If you are not Possessed by God, which is the One and Only Truly Divine and Eternal Being, then you can be possessed by anything or anyone. This does not mean those out there making such claims are evil people, delusional people most likely, but not necessarily evil.
Realization is the Only source for healing the Spiritual life, and much more, Realization (God ItSelf) is the Only source for Spiritual Awakening, Spiritual Revelation, and Ultimately the Only source that empowers total Realization (Enbrightenment) of the Spiritual Cross; and the Total Process that manifests after the Resurrection Current becomes a stable, powerful force initiating the total transformation of the Spiritual Cross unto the Overwhelming Brightness That Consumes all.
We are born to love, and to love all, but the way of the ego world changes this as we grow up and become adults. The type of love I am talking about refers to God’s love and/or the way God’s love works and lives through us. Remember as a child when you did not have fear of animals, people or the environment? Playing in the dirt was not dirty, nor did you end up with all sorts of illnesses because you played in the dirt (like your parents told you would happen). Your love of nature and life trumped all the insecurities and fears that might be possible. However, since you (as an infant) have not learned what those fears may be or the insecurities that spawn from fears (of what may be) the child plays freely and without care for how dirty one may become (at the expense of the parent’s anxiety). This is an expression of inherent love (universal love) manifesting through the individual (the child). This is an expression of universal consciousness living through the individual; the child that has not been conditioned with insecurities and fears.Love is inherent in reality and existence itself. Love is inherent in the very fabric (or source substance/field) of the universe. Consider the idea that when you come across something ‘cute’ or ‘adorable’ you are instantly attracted to that person, thing, and/or animal. The individual wants to hold that person, thing, and/or animal close to their heart, and that person wants to experience a relationship with the thing or animal (even another person) in a way that allows that person to relate freely and without care. It is the same kind of relationship that the child has with dirt or putting random things in their mouth; it’s a loving relationship that exists based on fearlessness and total security (regardless if the child understands fearlessness and security). In a relationship of love a person is vulnerable and exposed to their weaknesses, like an animal that lays on its back and exposes their belly to be rubbed or petted.
We are born to love, we are born to be free with each other, and to love freely each other, animals, and the environment. If a person knows that injury and harm are no threat then you will see that person express openness towards the object, animal and/or persons, which allows for love to find a footing and expression in that conscious relationship. This openness is an example of inherent love in all of us. Consciousness when looked at closely reveals that love is part of what it means to be conscious or to have a life. Consciousness equals existence, and existence for an individual equals life. Consciousness is an inherent quality of reality itself, and therefore, love is an inherent quality of what it means to be alive, to exist as a conscious being, and to live a life in the midst of suffering that is teeming with inherent love (in the Very substance of consciousness/existence itself) for all as all. Who is alive but does not yearn for love? We are Divine beings that are living vehicles and creatures of God’s love.
Conventional love in society is used in a way that allows the individual to apply it when it either benefits them or provides a way into power or achievement (such as getting a person to love you back). Love serves the ego mind in a way that seeks to boost the idea and image one has created (clothed) their self in. In other words, a person may use love to get a person whom they see as on their level and/or someone that compliments their personality (ego). Most people pretend to love or use love as a way to gain power and influence over others in order to satisfy the insatiable appetite of ego. But, love is there always in the back ground of all we do, and for the ego love is just sitting there as if it is some kind of reward or prize we offer people, animals, things and/or places that seem to create or generate the feelings of happiness, security, peace, satisfaction, success, achievement, and so on. Love becomes a tool for ego to get want it wants, and to serve ego’s way of life, which is based on a false seeking of self and abandonment of what Is inherently happiness, security, peace, and/or satisfaction; which is the One and Only Transcendent God of Existence/Reality.
Love is the source of what it means to be alive and conscious, and the ego takes love and applies as something that enables it (ego) to get what it wants. People seek love or to express love in ways that fill in the gaps of a single and whole love that seems to not exist. This is a reflection of a lack of a genuine Realization of Real Love, God’s Love, which is whole and universal. Humans draw from the source of love (which is infinite and eternal) to manipulate their way through life. People want love but only seem to find ways of experiencing love as a fragmented affair. The egoic individual will gather (seeking) love together through different relationships in life, and a person will get some love from parents, some love from their lover, and the individual will seek love through one’s relationship in nature (outdoors, for example) through hikes and experiences with nature. People find that they love all sorts of things for all sorts of different reasons. However, most never see that their fragmented version/vision of love is actually a single source of love (selflessly) manifesting itself through a fragmented life (egoic life). So, the individual goes about life loving this and rejecting that, finding a certain kind of love with one person and rejecting love with another, and this is simply a reflection of the cycle of ego. Ego is only capable of partial/fragmented love; ego is only capable of seeing love in a way that serves to fulfill the individual’s egoic vision (self image) of self. All love experienced through ego is perceived as something to satisfy self image. Genuine love, universal love, the love of God, is inherently Satisfied (without seeking), Perfectly Secure (without fear of love evaporating), and Infinitely and Eternally over-flowing with ItSelf (without love becoming empty or used up).
Universal love is the presence of an unrelenting force of action to transcend and embrace everything. This does not mean embracing fear, hatred, and so on; rather, it means understanding fear, hatred, and the qualities of consciousness that reject love. Love does not embrace fear, instead, love transcends fear, hatred, and so on. Fear, insecurity, and hatred (for whatever reason) are born from our life in the ego society/culture of Earth. That which rejects love is born after love. Thus, love always trumps that which comes after it. Love exists in the presence of reality as consciousness, and we must understand love as it eternally Is before we understand how the various appearances of love in our lives are an expression of the Transcendent, Eternal Love of God/Existence. Humanity has a tendency to seek love and use the energy of love to serve ego, but Real Love is inherent and not something that requires one to seek or search for it. Love is our Natural State of Existence/Being, allow genuine Love to radiate wholly and completely through you (the whole body/mind), and Realize God’s Love in all qualities of life with all. This is Enbrightenment. To Love is to exist, but without Realization of love and without a Real expression of love in an individual’s life, suffering (in various degrees) will be all one knows. The only Way to live in the midst of suffering is by drawing from the one Divine Source of all Love, without realization and/or understanding of God’s Love, a person becomes filled with despair and lack of drive to live (in any way). Furthermore, when a person has lost sight of all love, all ways that love works to manifest in a person’s life, then that one becomes filled with the ideas of non-existence and suicide (ending life, becoming nothing at all). Love cannot be exhausted, but ego’s ability to experience love can be exhausted. Thus, one must Transcend ego in order to See how Love fulfills and fills nature with ItSelf. The answer to despair is love, the answer to delusion is love, and the cracked world-view of ego cannot see Love beyond how it can use it to serve the ego life. Love is whole and complete, it lives through us as infants, children, teenagers, and adults into old age; however, the ego life has raised us to reject love unless it serves us, unless we can get something from it: when in Truth, love ItSelf is inherent in all of our lives, but many fail to See or Understand. Understand, Realize and Know Real Love, do this Now.
Realization breaks the endless cycle of me. Whole bodily realization ends the cycle of me. Realization is and remains an instantly available limitless source of Self, while whole bodily surrender unto Realization requires a process, and this is a process of total human development and awakening.
Do not become entangled with the notion that the body is just some kind of fleshy meat that is bound to waste away into nothing. But, in Reality the body is all one has, the body Is consciousness also, and it is not separate in any way from the Divine Transcendental Light of Consciousness. Step beyond bodily consciousness and feel into the presence of consciousness not bound to a body/mind, and there is Onlyness, not individuality, not evolution, not this or that, no 'God', no me, no I, no nothing, no something, no no, no yes, God Only Is. However, it is up to each person, and every individual is responsible for the activity of ego. Ego is the one conscious activity of the individual that binds that person to feeling contracted and fragmented, along with the absence of transcendental realization of Self. Ego is the eclipse of the Divine Light.
This is one reason why Guru is important, and that is because the Guru provides a steady and stable source of Realization that the individual can turn to and feel into for ego release and freedom. Heart communion appears with each other, heart communion appears with the bodily form of the Guru, heart communion is the height of spiritual life; and heart communion is the fulfillment of of God's word, God's message, God's teaching, God's revelation, and God's realization. Through heart communion Realization is understood and tangibly consciously realized to Be the Divine One alive as us. Beyond heart communion there is The~Only.
Be whole bodily Open to God. Transcend Heart~Fire intensity by transcending personal self. Until there is absolute personal self (egoic) transcendence, there is a contraction living on the consciousness of the body/mind like a parasite in the host. Furthermore, when the intensity of the Divine Light (Guru of Enbrightenment) is in the process of overwhelming the body/mind with ItSelf the intensity of this process leaves the ego turning inward upon itself to blot out the feeling of transcendence. The egoic process in relation to the body/mind becoming open to the Living Presence of Brightness sort goes like this, the more there is a feeling of an absence of personal self (via the Overwhelming Force of True Everlasting Self Presence), the more there is the conscious feeling presence of fear itself, even the conscious feeling of imminent death. The egoic forms of self always view transcendence as if it means the end of personal existence, thus, the first dynamic of 'me' in such an experience is to recoil upon itself and struggle for personal existence against the overwhelming Light of God.
The difference between a parasite and a host verses ego and the human body/mind is that each person (the host) has the inherent power of Truth, thus enabling each person to become liberated of the parasite of ego self. The core of this revelation also says that all are already and perfectly Free of ego, birth and death in that which is Eternally Free of ego, birth and death. The activity of ego (conscious feeling activity of personal self) cannot itself become free or liberated or live a transcendent life. Therefore, trying to progress spiritually through a false sense of self is like putting your hand in a blender, turning it on, and blaming the blender for damage to your hand. You can't pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, you can't remove a mountain with the very same mountain, and a mountain cannot be removed with itself.

The contracting quality of 'me' is an ever present activity of attachment to bodily life. However, the Brightness is inherently transcendent of the/any body/mind, yet, the body/mind is truly manifesting, moment to moment, in the midst of Eternal Transcendence. All worlds, bodily forms, and things are actually manifesting as simply apparent modifications of Eternal Reality. Not one thing appearing is permanent, and there are no worlds, universes, heavens or hells that last forever. It might be possible to extend human life for many thousands of years, and to travel across the galaxy or even further, but the human body, and any possible bodily form that exists, appears and/or needs space/time in order to exist. In the absence of a universe, of any type, all that is left is Reality or God ItSelf. In the presence of any universe, of any type, there is Only Reality or God ItSelf. All that appears is unnecessary and non-binding to Reality or God ItSelf. An Enbrightened way of looking at this says Only attach one’s Feeling of Self to Eternity ItSelf, and to whole bodily and consciously Transcend all motives, urges and tendencies towards attachment in any world, to any body/mind, to transcend any and all attachment to a personal identity, and Transcend All possible temporary feelings of personal self Perpetually and Freely Now and forever.
Be whole bodily Available to the Divine Presence of Reality ItSelf. This is something each person is responsible for, and no amount of dogma, belief or evolution can be subsidized for taking personal responsibility for self Transcendence, not for some other pseudo/fragmented identity, but for the Divine Living Brightness of God. This personal responsibility is yours and yours only, and in the Grace filled company of the Guru, you can take Rest by consciously Feeling into the Guru’s own bodily Transcendent Transmission of the Divine One. This gives Way to Heart Communion, and through Heart Communion the Fullness of the Teachings can progress unto the whole Awakening of the Spiritual Cross. This is not something to be done on a weekend retreat, or at a passing visit from some kind of guru. Heart Communion is the last place of one ‘journeys’ through in the Divine Process of Enbrightenment. It takes time, discipline, devotion, persistence, Heart yearning, and simply total Attachment unto the Divine Only. Blessings.

Fear mongering ministry is dying, and should be dead culturally already. This kind of ministry has lost grip with Reality, Truth and True God, but Not anthropomorphic god. Fear mongering and anthropomorphic god go together, and anthropomorphic god wants to conquer all other gods. The hearts of the people of Earth cannot be herded into one religion; it’s just not Ever going to happen, there will Never come a day when one religion has conquered them all. Moreover, the claim to the use of threats in religion, such as hell and eternal suffering, are born from ego religion. Ego religion attempts to save or make eternal some kind of bodily form; thus the fear of eternal hell and not making it to eternal heaven. Fear is the motivation of ego religion.
However, in truth Only God is eternal, and Eternal God (that which transcends all right Now) is Free of a body and Perfectly without the need of a body to exist. Fear mongering ministry is simply ego religion. It focuses on fear, uncertainty, doubt, what-if, and an inherent absence of Truth in the individual. Ego religion is a lie. Fear mongering is a dying breed of the ego based religions. The people of Earth are getting tired of this hate babble, and only those people that cling onto hate and seek power are left returning to these churches. Ego religion is in the business (making money and entertaining), and in the business of creating separation and otherness. Ego religion is working to save a body for some presumed eternal life or eternal world. Fear religion and the practice of converting people is actually the practice of forcing one’s own interpretation of God onto another, and whatever the preacher is doing in the church to the congregation, so to shall the congregation do unto those outside of the church. The (majority of the) congregation always mimics their preachers in life outside of the church. The children of hate, fear and darkness are taught from a teacher of hate, fear and darkness. Sometimes that teacher is oneself, and more often than not, that teacher is a preacher and/or political figure with a ministry of hate, separation, fear, domination, war, death and the total conquering of the world through their religious and/or political ideology.
God cannot be forced, and no one is turning to God by running in fear of the devil. The ministry of hell mongering is a ministry of fear, fear is contraction, and fear contraction is always into ego self. This is the way of the life of personal self (ego self), which is inherently a conscious feeling of separation, avoiding, and distancing one’s self from ‘others’. Furthermore, this conscious activity is at the heart of all ego religion; all religion that seeks to become something it believes it is not, separate from, and other than. The irony of ego religion is that God (Realized) demonstrates all are Truth inherent, no one is separate from Truth by any degree, and Truth remains Everlasting in the face of an ever changing idea of personal self. Truth transcends All religion, and Truth is free to be expressed in all people and cultures of love, peace, compassion, kindness, and integral spirituality. In the religions of hate, fear mongering, and holy war there is no Real God, just anthropomorphic god. Real God stops working when violence and hate start.
Fear mongering ministry keeps the congregation scared and in doubt unless you are an exact copy of them, and fear ministry is an arrogant ministry that always asserts its 'betterness' verses all other religions (which are claimed to be of the devil). Fear mongering ministry keeps the congregation in lock down by claiming all other religions are a path to hell. Truth ministry has Faith in God, not humans, and Faith in God allows a person to hear the Word of God without shoving it down a person’s throat. A Real preacher knows they are preaching to the children of Truth, and thus being humbled by Truth ItSelf, a real Integral preacher, one of Truth that transcends humanity’s self created limitations, keeps the congregation enlivened by that Direct Honesty of the Always Freely Available God, which is not bound or limited by anyone other than one self. All fear ministries Be crushed by the overwhelming shine of Eternal Love. Blessings.
It is almost impossible to find the Guru as one Self before one has realized Guru in another. This is not something that comes like the rest of the knowledge one may have 'gained' over a life time. Guru Is Heart Communion. Ask one self if there is a constant and literally overwhelming Heart surrender into the Divine One (total self/personal letting go) right Now. What is the evidence of this Heart Communion? It Always comes with a Real and Tangible perpetual bodily awakening and realization of heart-love-bliss.
Guru is the primary and principle function of the divine process of (whole bodily) Enbrightenment. Guru is useful only when a person is relating through heart communion. That is all. Guru sees unity, oneness and that person lives directly (moment to moment) out of the Divine Light, and the Guru does not notice this idea of more enlightened than another. Real Guru does not want people to follow them and/or worship them. Guru is an example of how Enbrightened we already Are. However, the ego falsely seeks Truth as if it is not Present, thus, the (delusional) idea of one person being more enbrightened than another.
Guru serves the devotee that is heart attracted by deepening that person’s Faith based self surrender into God (Eternal Light), which overcomes the individual’s false sense of self by the grace born baptism of Fire and Light that is realized through the Guru's bodily transmission. It is important to understand the full spiritual process in order to see how Guru serves the devotees of God. That process involves two principle aspects, which are self realization and the divine transformation of the body through the constant (purging fire) presence of realization. God is the only one that Is enlightened, and the function of Guru is to be a living, in your face demonstration, of the fulfillment of the divine process of whole bodily transformation. No one ever becomes enlightened; the personal sense of self is purged (the one seeking false enlightenment) so that Real Enbrightenment can take hold of the individual and live As the individual.
The Guru does not see anything more than itself. Ultimately, Guru is transcended in heart communion, which is something that does not belong to either bodily form, but is transcendent of bodily form. The only real way to understand Guru is through heart communion and the Guru's bodily transmission of realization, which is inherently beyond all words and always a direct reflection of the Gurus depth of realization. If a person is not living in such a steady-state of God realization and yet claim to have 'found' Guru within that person is simply lying to their self.
One problem people have with Guru is that they are afraid to love another person in the same way one loves God, so they abandon the idea of Guru because of fear of giving up oneself, the deep fear of not existing. Loving Guru As God is the only way one truly dives into the relationship of Guru and devotee. Realizing Guru in oneself takes the lesson of realizing Guru in another. With heart realization comes a tangible and always present heart-fire love-bliss (EVERYTIME). Realization (Divine Love) comes with Real bodily changes, and anyone that tells it does not is (deeply) wrong. Simply claiming to have found Guru within without ever Knowing Guru as another person usually (99% of the time) means a person has not actually awakened real heart communion with the Source of all Gurus. Have you loved another in the Same way as you love God? How can one discover real love for one self and not have that love expressed or realized with another person?
Not everyone is ready for the Guru. However, don't let the new age mumbo jumbo of being a teacher of your self (not needing Guru – Heart Communion with Guru) convince one’s self that Guru is a thing of the past. Guru in person cannot be replaced by ideas, thought patterns, patterns noticed in nature, and/or any kind of abstract non-tangible – non-physical vision or experience. Never forget Guru is a function of the true God Realization process within the individual. A person will not pass into the final stages of whole bodily surrender without realizing Guru. Go ahead and test my word. Guru is the most profound and powerful aspect of genuine spiritual life.
Any person claiming to be a Guru should offer heart communion, and the attraction to such a person should be grounded in heart communion. If a person claiming to be Guru is not tangibly transmitting realization, which is beyond words, in such a way that once entering into their company one instantly notices the ambient radiance of the Guru then that person is not serving as Guru. They might be serving people in other ways, but it is not As Guru. Find the love of God in Guru, and Guru and devotee will disappear in the Light of God.
