Let our Age of Awakening conversation continue, a shakeup of old assumptions. Together let’s question traditional ideas about Enlightenment and reading auras, ideas that I consider to be unworthy of this age. (And unworthy of you, if these hoary, outdated beliefs influence you now.)
Unworthy? How come? Because millions of people can now move into Enlightenment, and do it as householders. But not if they continue to seek self-realization in ways that, ironically, slow them down.
Prepare for grit and grime and down-to-earth, all ye who enter into reading today’s blog post. Because, really, there’s more to Enlightenment Coaching — or energetic literacy — than fantasizing about happy rainbows and friendly cupids. Or, perhaps, receiving a special delivery cosmic valentine from your favorite form of God.
Today I’m longing to tell it like it is. So I will. Hey, this is my own personal blog.
For years I’ve been writing about why energetic literacy is an essential skill for us, living now, and very attainable for all of us who wish to learn it.
In case you’re wondering Why Read Auras? — you might find that blog post for inspiring.
New knowledge and skills are always progressing in this field of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). Yet we have just moved forward with a giant step, given the recent exploration of consciousness development beyond regular Householder Enlightenment. CONTINUE READING →
Can spiritual evolution continue once somebody has crossed the threshold into Enlightenment?
What if acknowledging any ripening of consciousness would clash with your belief system? If a person doesn’t want further growth within self-realization, this is unlikely to happen.
Same thing if a person doesn’t know much about higher states of consciousness particularly. That person’s awareness might beautifully stay put. And even if other consciousness-related development happens, the person might not notice. The politicians and celebrities on my Enlightenment Life List may never have heard of the term, yet they’re living in Enlightenment. (Sweet!)
I’ve seen both of these stay-put experiences with some Buddhists and non-duality folks, for instance.
Otherwise, yes. For somebody in Enlightenment, there can definitely be further evolution. The human game isn’t “done,” not by a long shot.
Our Blog-Buddy DAVID B. devotes an entire blog to the nuances of consciousness, and I’d recommend it to any of you who are curious about that. Especially impressive to me is how he illuminates the more traditional ways of understanding Enlightenment, which I call “The Simplicity Model of Enlightenment.” As in, “It’s all about consciousness. Ultimately that simple.”
As an Enlightenment Coach, I specialize in a different model, “Householder Enlightenment,” which is unfolding in the world now because we’re now in the Age of Awakening. As in, “The development of consciousness is lived in very human ways, with an emphasis on the human experiences.”
For today’s article, we have a lovely opportunity, to research how Enlightenment has been ripening for one of the members of our community, meditation teacher AMANDA FLOOD.
It’s not every day when a casual look at the headlines in the day’s newspaper makes me angry.
I’m practiced at not letting myself go there, into the Lande of Indignation. But then I was not reading about the newspaper’s usual Places of Hideosity. Nope, today’s read (in the print edition) was captioned, “A mission for Jesus in the public schools.” The reporter was Emma Brown.
Did you know that Victoria Tomasheski is paid by her church to do missionary work in a public school?
Wait, she is paid by an American public school. To. Work. As. A. Teacher.
A plaintive series of comments came to my blog today from GAYANEE, who had proposed her beloved guru for my Enlightenment Life List. And then, in Comment 1973, I supplied the results of my aura reading research for discerning Enlightenment:
“Obviously he is a beloved teacher to you, GAYANEE. However I do not find him ready for my Enlightenment Life List, not at the time of this photograph.”
GAYANEE responded very mildly and graciously, I thought, with these words:
“As a student it is a bit of a mind twister for me that how some long standing and deeply loved teachers that claim to be enlightened and teaching enlightenment don’t make Rose’s list. CONTINUE READING →
It’s delightful to read the blog written by my friend DAVID BUCKLAND. Sure enough, that’s what I did bright and early this Sunday morning. I find the clarity and erudition about higher states of consciousness to be unmatched by any other Enlightenment expert I know.
However, that doesn’t mean I always agree with him.
This morning I opened up an article on The What and How of Subtle Perception. DAVID gives a beautiful analysis and context for what he calls “subtle perception” and I call “deeper perception” and still others call “celestial perception.”
At “Observations on the Road Home,” David advises, “If such things do begin to show up that’s fine. We should allow but not invest in them.”
What do I find? Just the opposite. We can do far more than allow. We can actively pursue.
Just as we can do far more than allow Enlightenment to unfold. We can actively pursue. CONTINUE READING →
As usual with these articles, the big liveliness is in the COMMENTS.
As often happens, this post began on one theme and morphed into something quite different. In this case, the conversation changed because of a powerful teaching moment set in motion by a brave reader, EMILYH in her Comment #16.
And that’s Reason #1 why I’m loving our journey together into “Deeper Perception Made Practical.”
Let’s play a game of “Twister” with our minds today — those of us who are in the mood for some Enlightenment coaching.
Today, at his blog “Observations on the Way Home,” our Blog-Buddy David Buckland published a short but pithy post about “Ignorance.”
You can read this in all its glory by clicking on that link just provided. My version goes, “From a spiritual perspective, ignorance does not exist. Hunting it down will not help. Just bring in the light.”
Enlightenment Through Understanding Truths of Consciousness
I got such a kick out of DAVID B.’s article because it highlights for me the difference between a consciousness perspective for those seeking Enlightenment and the human-based perspective of this Enlightenment coach. CONTINUE READING →
Finally my garden looks perfect, no weeding required.
Every inch of the garden twinkles, aglow with a pristine white perfection. Because a fresh snowfall brings many blessings, and that is one.
Yet a certain garden-area chore still needs to be done. Blog-Buddies, unless you’re living on Mars, I’ll bet that you know what it is.
Shoveling snow? We’re ready.
Armed with sturdy shovels, my husband Mitch and I take turns. We’re scooping out a path from the house to the street. One small strip to begin, with more clearing to come in the hours and days to follow.
According to the weather forecast, however much show has already landed and stuck — at least that much more will come. Shoveling is to become a way of life for us, lasting a couple of days, at least.
“Words cannot describe the joy of this shoveling experience.”
