A Very Brief Course in Enlightenment

"You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep."  
~Navajo Proverb

Welcome to today's sharing; looking at enlightenment and what benefits each of us might realize by aligning with that consciousness.  First, let's establish a model for our consideration; Matthew Taylor's views on enlightenment in the following video, 21st Century Enlightenment:

"There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power." ~Henry David Thoreau

A very prophetical quote by Thoreau that sewed seeds for future enlightened thought and collaborations about the nature of enlightenment that now finds our planet at this junction as our old paradigm for living is fading and the new paradigm is emerging.

"I am a part of all that I have met."  ~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Our life experience is a mix of both environmental factors and the nature of who each of us is at her/his core.  Our physical body is out-pictured from the diagram run from the DNA.  Our etheric energy is in alignment with source energy to the degree our free energy exchange goes unblocked by our beliefs (thoughts strongly linked to emotions).
In other words, yours and my freedom to align with our true nature depends upon the degree we see ourselves as deserving of this alignment.

Yes, you got it, you empower yourself to move toward or away from enlightenment.  The ingredients in the formula remain love, open-mindedness, curiosity, self-acceptance, and flexibility.

"You can see a lot by just looking."  ~Yogi Berra

"Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?"  ~Maurice Freehill
Yes seeking enlightenment involves both opening your eyes to experience the mystery of life and embracing those insights you discover along your journey.

"In the right circumstances, an individual can awaken to a higher state of consciousness and a bigger, deeper, more comprehensive, and more inclusive worldview that is absolutely liberating and inspiring and gives so much confidence." ~Andrew Cohen

Spiritual teacher, Andrew Cohen shares with you now his thoughts on what he terms, Evolutionary Enlightenment; relax and enjoy the video below, now:

"The authentic self is the best part of a human being.  It's the part of you that already cares, that is already passionate about evolution. When your authentic self miraculously awakens and becomes stronger than your ego, then you will truly begin to make a difference in this world. You will literally enter into a partnership with the creative principle."
~ Andrew Cohen

Andrew's teachings on "The Authentic Self" provide us yet another look at how powerful aligning with the divine in yourself is and what the ginormous  potentials for each of us are.

We conclude this post with a beautiful and powerful video by Unasleep ; Changing Your Tune.

What tune are you playing? Is your current tune providing the harmony you seek in your life?  What part have you been playing?
"Change your tune and you change your song."
