Enlightenment Lies exposed here. By ISABELLA CATES, RES Practitioner, who lives and thrives and tells the truth… while in Enlightenment.
Enlightenment has become a lively topic here once more, thanks to a recent guest post. News from KYLIE, Transformation in the Age of Awakening. Wonderful flows of information happen here, at this informal blog community.
In Comment 12, Blog-Buddy RACHEL asked this good question: “I am curious as to whether you continued to feel the need to have cords of attachment cut, post-enlightenment?”
Like KYLIE, ISABELLA is another active member of this online community who has moved into Enlightenment. She is also a grad of the Mentoring Program in Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). ISABELLA began to respond as you will see in her Comment 13, over where RACHEL was writing.
The rest is below, turned into a Guest Post. My headings and links, ISABELLA’s wisdom.
The Worst Misunderstanding — a Common LIE — about Enlightenment
There are so many illusions about Enlightenment. So many of them are really quite ridiculous and stand in stark contrast to my day-to-day experience.
One of them is that once you are Enlightened, your growing as a person is done.
Frankly this illusion, this LIE, makes me quite angry and impassioned.
These illusions are part of what makes extreme spiritual addiction possible.
What Happened to the Great World Gurus Who Got into Such Trouble?
Think of gurus who became involved in scandals around sex or money.
Were these perfect people, no growth needed? In one sense, yes, I assume they served a grand purpose and a very important role, and all is well and perfect.
However, the fact that they were Enlightened does not excuse their behavior. Looking back on it now, cant we see that more clearly?
Being a Good Human Person, with Enlightenment or Not
Having a super fancy renunciate-style version of Enlightenment does not mean that the great world gurus in Enlightenment have known better than someone like me or you about being a good human person.
Hypothetically, had their trajectory been different and they wanted to grow as people, a session of RES with a good ol human intention probably could have served them well.
Personally I Have Benefitted from Many Sessions of RES Since Moving into Enlightenment
As for no longer caring or needing to grow as a person after Enlightenment, in my case, this couldnt be further from the truth.
I cared so much about growing before Enlightenment and I care so much now.
Living human life like I care (I do, more than ever), supplemented with the huge toolbelt of RES skill sets (one of which is cutting cords of attachment) has served me so well.
On another note, if the only RES skill set I was trained in was cutting cords of attachment properly, I would be way ahead of the game, yes, but I would also be woefully unprepared as a RES practitioner for the many, many different situations that arise and types of STUFF that call for healing.
