Purity and Humility

“Without purity it’s impossible to realize God.... We have a lot of different ideas about what self-realization is, what God consciousness is, but in order to go beyond ideas to direct realization, of that which is and will always be, it’s essential to have a great deal of purity. Unless you have a great deal of purity, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to retain higher spiritual energy. Or we might say, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to stay in a higher consciousness.” Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz "Humility is the most important quality in the spiritual life. There is no quality that is more important because whatever qualities and powers you possess -- if you do not have humility -- they’re all in vain; whereas if you have humility, you’re halfway to God-realization. Humility is not enough, but I say it’s the most important quality you can possess in your arsenal of spiritual qualities because it is the only one that, when it is lacking, spiritual growth stops. ... So if you seek eternity and light and luminosity, seek humility first.” Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz

Advanced Meditation

"In advanced meditation we not only pass through other planes of consciousness or awareness but we become them."

Modular Mysticism: Seeing

“Nothing is or is not, unless thinking makes it so. We all know the words. Therefore the only way you can tell what is beyond, what is or is not, is to stop thought. Seeing is the process of stopping all thought.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

"You know, the question comes up all the time. Why does one person see more than another? Why can you sit there and see red auras and blue auras and the person next to you won't, if the auras are in fact there? Well, the reason is very simple. The only reason all of you don't see more than you do is because you're held back by your description (of the world). Because in your description, certain things happen and certain things don't, and your description won't bend." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Non-Doing of Meditation

“Meditation is not a doing. It just is. We think of meditation as something that we have to do, something that we have to accomplish. This is emblazoned on our consciousness by our lives. That's why I think people have difficulty with meditation. They try and do it. You can't. It's not something that can be done, nor is it something that can be undone. "Meditation has nothing to do with that, the personal self, that is. Meditation is timeless awareness. You don't have to do anything to make it happen. You don't have to rub two sticks together vigorously to create fire. The fire is already burning inside. To become aware of that which is, you simply have to stop … stop all the doings that you do, all the actions you perform, all the rituals….. "Meditation just is. You don't have to do anything.... Meditation exists with you constantly. The universe is meditation. That awareness is everywhere, just as the air is everywhere. You don't have to go to the air; you're breathing it already. You may be unaware that you're breathing -- your attention is elsewhere -- but you can easily become aware of the air. So you can easily meditate. “ Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

A Workshop with Rama

This talk-set given by Rama includes 3 talks; Psychic Development, Meditation & Kundalini and Enlightenment & Self-Realization.

Talk

Kundalini Yoga

"So my recommendation is -- if you seek to practice kundalini yoga -- to meditate, of course, and you can meditate on the different chakras and feel what that's like. But what will really release the kundalini is something much simpler and more effective, in addition to meditation techniques, breathing techniques, and so on. And that is by creating a stillness in your life. This stillness will come about through deep caring and introspection. It will come about slowly and then quickly. It builds in momentum." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Managing and Increasing Your Energy

“Happy people, enlightened people, successful people, inspired people -- they all share something in common -- they've learned how to manage and increase their energy.

"There are two sides to increasing energy. One is learning how to gain energy; the other is avoiding its loss. My subject today is not so much how you increase it. I'm suggesting that's pretty easy. The problem is losing it.

"The primary place where most people lose energy is in their relationships with others. Wherever dependency is created, energy is lost. In self-discovery, in Zen, you need to become independent and strong. That's the key that unlocks the door ... of enlightenment.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Rapid Mental Development

“Zen is the study of making the mind still. As your mind becomes still, a power enters into you. This power transforms your mind. It escalates your evolution and you begin to cycle through many incarnations in one lifetime. You make tremendous quantum leaps and jumps… you are going to take perhaps a hundred lifetimes, which you would have gone through and experienced and gradually evolved through into higher levels of intelligence, and do that perhaps in one lifetime. And you will go through all the changes in awareness, all of the different states of mind, that you would have experienced in a hundred lifetimes." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
