Four Aspects of Illumination
I began "The
Work" alone. I did not know it was "The Work."
I set off on my spiritual path
one day in a shopping mall. I had the realization that no matter
what I bought that day thinking it would make me happy, it would
only provide a transient feeling
of happiness. I knew there must be something that would bring
a long lasting happiness. I was committed to finding it.
I began reading, reading, reading books about
I listened to tapes. I found a Guru. I sang songs about peace,
light, Love, and joy. I experienced some
of connection with my spiritual
body, but never truly left my mental
body for more than a moment. The books and the Guru spoke
about staying in the Heart.
I did not know how to stay there, much less how to really get
there. My only awareness of Heart was from what my ego told me.
I felt alone.
I continued to pray for a teacher to help
me truly Wake Up. Divine
Order manifested the teacher. Divine Order also brought me
to "The Work".
I found my Heart.
My Heart broke, then it opened. It became infilled with Love
and Light. Then I knew I had found Truth
within and for myself. I was on the way to my Illumination.
The Four Aspects to Illumination/The Work
The meaning of these is as follows:
From the Heart:
This focuses on the Heart as the Center of our Being.
It is home. The place from which we move and have our Being.
Specifically, we live from the Serene
Center of our Being Within Our Heart. When we first experienced
this place within our Heart, we were asked to see/feel a beloved teacher
who awaits us in the Serene Center of Our Being within our Heart:
Buddha, Christ, Mother Mary, Quan Yin and many others.
The second aspect to Illumination implies that one recognizes
Love as the operating force, or energy, behind everything. Holding
the awareness of the Esoteric
Teachings / God Thoughts that "God is Love" and
"Everything is God", we come to know that Love is the
Presence of God,
the Divine Spark,
in all Things. Love is the energy of All God
The awareness of this busts The
Big Lie that we or anything is separate from God, and thereby
The third aspect to Illumination refers to doing "The
Work" in Consciousness. This means that one is always
acting from Conscious Choice, Divine
Referencing. It is a volitional act. This implies that one
takes responsibility for that which one creates or acts upon
or thinks about. All states of mind reproduce themselves. This
means, that whatever is in your Consciousness is the reality
you create yourself. So Create Consciously. Take responsibility
for all aspects of your Consciousness/Reality.
In a Group: The fourth aspect to Illumination
refers to the Truth
that Christ spoke: when two or more are gathered in God's
name, there is Love.
We know that Love is always present in us, through us, as us,
if we bring our Consciousness
to it. When we gather as a group of Conscious Beings
with a similar intention to Wake Up, we create
a Group Soul
Body which raises the energy of the individuals ten thousand
times, ten thousand times. The group also offers support. It
is difficult to stay on the pathless
path alone. With group support, there are friends and comrades
with whom we travel. They love, support, and assist us. Their
adds to our Soul's prayers for us.
