Enlightenment Status Games bothered my client Chris. He wondered, “Rose, why did you bother to make a big deal over nine RES clients who moved into Enlightenment last year?”
Understandably, he worried. Was I setting up some repulsive kind of status contest here at my blog? Like “Nyah, nyah, they’re the cream of the crop. Since you’re not on the list, you count for nothing.”
During his session with me, Chris wanted answers. And after I supplied them he kindly gave me permission to share what follows.
Enlightenment Status Games, Is That Why I Keep an Enlightenment Life List?
Definitely not, Blog-Buddies.
For a detailed answer about why I maintain an Enlightenment Life List, see the video here. (Scroll down to the second video. Although everything at that last link might prove helpful.)
- If you haven’t seen that most popular post at my blog, by all means check it out. Free aura readings are there. Nominate properly and I’ll do that for you.
- Also, I have a similar reason for keeping a list of RES clients who move into Enlightenment.
History. I aim to keep a historical record.
Reminds me of when I served my guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Back in the 1970’s, he declared the “Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment.” Referring to the time we were in. And with typical stubbornness, refusing to acknowledge that the Western Age of Enlightenment had already come and gone.
Even weirder, who was feeling it? During the 1970’s, thoughtful people felt discouraged. Politically, socially, you name it. Supposedly, “Life is so bad now. It can’t get worse.”
Sigh, perhaps a good thing for us to remember as the American government shutdown progresses.
Still, Maharishi Was Right to Celebrate that Dawn
Given how I remember his words, here’s the gist: Any fool can see the sun in the sky at noon. It takes a wise person to recognize that first spark of dawn. Recognize it long before dawn lights up the sky.
Back in the 1970’s the Shift was in progress. And that thinning of the psychic barrier would continue to accelerate for decades.
By 12/21/12, bam! No more psychic barrier or veil. The Age of Awakening had finally begun.
Granted, only one magazine article has reported it so far… Nearly six years after the fact.
Still, that counts as a something. And one of my roles in lovingly tending this blog is to make a historical record. That includes recording the appearance on earth of the new kind of Enlightenment possible now. Age of Awakening Enlightenment!
Enlightenment Status Games Won’t Matter Much Longer
Who will need to play them? Who, when millions of people have moved into Enlightenment? And done it with the new kind of Enlightenment on earth:
- Age of Awakening Enlightenment
- In Contrast to Traditional Enlightenment
But it’s early years yet. And you Blog-Buddies are helping me to wake up knowledge and experience. What is Enlightenment now? Why does it matter?
To quote one of my favorite questions, “What does it smell like?”
Enlightenment Status Games Are Foolish. And Unnecessary
As an Enlightenment Coach, I assure you. What matters isn’t who moves into Enlightenment and gets onto my list.
Instead, what matters is who improves.
For example, back in fourth grade, I began attending a new school. (Oboy, details galore are in my memoir of spiritual awakening!) At the end of the year, our teacher looked over test scores and told us who was the top student. One of the two class bullies, Jennifer!
I raised my hand and asked my teacher, “How about which of the students improved the most?”
That silly fourth grade teacher didn’t think that mattered. How about you? Don’t you think improvement means more than getting some grade or title?
I sure do. And the fact is that you regular RES clients are making magnificent progress. Whether you seek personal growth or spiritual evolution, or both. You’re aces. (Chris included.) Please know that matters far more than who gets on some silly list.
Enlightenment Status Games? Maybe Mostly a Fear.
Oh my, there’s one more aspect to the session I had with Chris. Most important, seems to me.
And for now, questions, anyone? Have any of you felt icky that I’ve made a big deal about people moving into Enlightenment? Possibly you squirm a little inside every time….
If so, I’d greatly appreciate if you’d comment below. (Anonymously if you wish.)
Back when I taught Transcendental Meditation (TM), I suffered plenty through such status games. Perpetual status games — I know how much they hurt.
By now, I’m a very different kind of spiritual teacher. Altogether different from Maharishi, of course. Incapable of acting like any kind of a guru. Also, I believe in discussing problems honestly.
So I’m very thankful to Chris for telling me about the problems that roiled him. And I’ll be grateful to you as well, if you need to clear the air. Send any gripes to the COMMENTS section below.
You know, I just might be able to help. Give me a chance.
