Why I Believe in Developing Deeper Perception

There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!

There are so many beautiful perspectives on Enlightenment and subtle perception!

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.

Capture the Fort — Why to Choose Spiritual Development First If You Seek Enlightenment

Eileen Caddy, founder of the world-famous Findhorn Community, was added to my Enlightenment Life List today.

I met Caddy around 1986, while she gave a talk about her community. By the time of Eileen Caddy’s transition, January 1, 2007, she had evidently reached Enlightenment.

Today I came across a website commemorating Eileen Caddy’s work with the Findhorn Foundation.

It was a treat to research her and be able to  list her as a member of my personal Enlightenment Life List.

Was Eileen Caddy a Psychic or a Spiritual Teacher?

The order matters, at least if you aim to progress on a path to Enlightenment.

Psychic development is about astral frequencies. Often it is said to be equivalent to spiritual development.

Personally, I do not find this to be borne out by my aura reading research. Instead, there are psychic frequencies and there are is also a spiritual frequency.

Chakra databanks, for instance, contain both a gift of your soul (Divine frequency, and permanent) and a changeable size and quality (astral frequency, and healable).

The Findhorn Foundation does attract many people interested in psychic development, no question. However, here is a tipoff about where Eileen Caddy was coming from in her wonderful work. As noted at her website:

“Eileen Caddy first received personal guidance from a ‘still, small voice’ inside herself, a source she called ‘the God Within.’ From that day on she lived her life by that inner guidance, which led to the creation of the international spiritual community that is the Findhorn Foundation.”
