Enlightenment

by Dr. Bobbie Stevens on October 18, 2010

We have heard it said that “to live is to suffer”.  Is that your experience?  We all live in a world that tries to understand life and fulfill our needs and desires with the intellect, and when we fail, and we inevitably will fail, we suffer in one way or another.  So we have all experienced suffering, but some people have discovered how to move or grow beyond suffering.  So, we know that the cessation of suffering is attainable.

We read about people who experience exotic sounding things like Samadhi or Nirvana.  Another word for these states of consciousness is enlightenment.  We also know that these states of consciousness are not comprehensible for those who have not attained them, but we can try to understand what it might be like to transcend suffering and live our lives from a higher state of consciousness.

Many years ago I discovered a process for releasing stress and strengthening my nervous system, and the practice of this process over time allowed me to move into a whole new level of functioning and understanding.  It was like moving into a whole new world.  My world in the past had been limited by what I could figure out through the use of my intellect, and in this world there was suffering.

However, through the use of this process I had developed another part of myself that I was not previously aware of.  I had developed my intuitive abilities.  These abilities are inherent within all of us, but they lie dormant until we discover how to develop them.  Once these abilities are activated we become capable of seeing and understanding laws of nature and how they govern our lives.  For me it was something like getting out of jail.  I was no longer limited by the use of my intellect alone.  I could see and understand life from a totally different perspective, and I knew if I lived in harmony with the laws of nature I could fulfill all of my needs and desires right from within myself.

What I discovered later was that the process I was using refined the energy within the entire mind/body system which allowed it to merge with Universal Intelligence, (all knowledge).  This refinement opens the channels of intuition, so that we can intuitively see and understand wholeness or how everything fits together.  It becomes clear that we are all part of one perfect system.  This oneness includes everything, and I became aware that I am a part of it and so is everyone else and everything else.

This realization is often described as an experience of enlightenment.

Abraham Maslow discovered this in the experiences of people whom he called Self-Actualized.  Through all of these studies we know that a much better life is available for any of us who has the willingness and discipline to do what it takes to develop, what we are now calling our right brain abilities.

I know that anyone can use this process to discover far greater abilities than we ever knew we had.  I do not know how long it will take to reach enlightenment, but it will put one on the path to enlightenment.  We all start from where ever we are and grow and along the way to enlightenment some pretty great things start to happen.  Our energy starts increasing, our minds become clearer, we begin to feel much more peaceful inside, and life takes on a totally different look and feel.

Are you ready for a life without suffering?  Are you ready for a life where you can see and understand how to work with the laws of nature to create the life you want for yourself?

I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book on Personal Growth. I have also created a CD, DVD, Companion Workbook and The Unlimited Futures Core Course on DVDs to help you.  They provide you with the perfect way to start your journey toward enlightenment.

Once you start experiencing this growth process, we also provide in-residence courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
