We are all capable of making the deep transformation that releases us from being a slave to our minds and allows us to enter into a state of enlightenment and awareness
There are steps that we need to take to reach and maintain a state of enlightenment and awareness, and it is accessible because it is linked to a spiritual truth that is already within us, that we simply need to remember to reawaken. The first thing we need to understand is that experiencing an intense state of presence and awareness allows us to experience a union with our Being. When, at a conscious or unconscious level, we begin to perceive ourselves as meaningless fragments, in an alien universe, unconnected to the Source and to each other, we feel anxious and become afraid, and end up in a state of conflict, with the world and with ourselves.
Being is everywhere, regardless of the life forms that live and die. When the mind is calm, when we are present and completely focussed on the Now, we can feel the state of Being, even if we don’t fully understand it. This concept is fundamental, and cannot simply be understated: we cannot use rationality to understand and explain Being, but we can feel it.
