The Natural State

In Buddhism we call Enlightenment the natural state. But with billions of human beings on Earth thinking and acting, it is difficult for us to even quiet our mind. We are all incarnate Buddhas and we seek our own innocence. Find out how we can become more aware of our true nature and reside in the natural state.

Rama Live - Consciousness Expansion and Desire

The world is constantly imprinting us. It’s imprinting us with ideas, beliefs, vibrational forms, all kinds of things. And the imprinting is so constant and so powerful, that it’s necessary for us to allow Eternity to imprint ourselves in a slightly different way. So when we have one of these moments, the longer we can meditate upon it, the longer we can keep it in our cumulative consciousness, the stronger in a sense it will become. Because the moment is not really a moment. Rather, it’s an entrance into another plane of reality, and that plane of reality is always available.

Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrine

"The Tibetan Book of the Dead is thought by many to be a very archaic book that describes what happens to you after you die.... That is the popular understanding of the book. The real use of the book though, the esoteric use of the book and the secret teachings, has nothing to do with that at all. The idea that death changes anything is laughed at by the enlightened teachers. This is death... Life is the bardo. The bardo is not something that you experience after death (it's that too): everything that's present after death is present now. All of the dimensions, worlds, planes of existence and, of course, nirvana, exist now, and one does not have to wait for death to experience the alternate realities or to grow towards enlightenment or be absorbed in nirvana. All of that is now, since there is no time and there is no dimension. The Tibetan Book of the Dead is not correctly named: rather, it's a Book of the Living ... or a Book of Life. It's a book that teaches you about inner states of awareness." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Truth

"Self-discovery tries to take you beyond reason. A reason is a terrible trap—because you will be satisfied with answers. And if you're satisfied with answers, you'll never come to know what life really is. Life can only be known through direct experience—direct experience in meditation, where you're tasting the water or feeling it, which is far removed from simply talking about it or hearing someone else's experiences. The next step, of course, is to become it." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Sorcerer's Explanation

"A person is made up of awarenesses. These awarenesses all exist in the unknown -- now we're moving into what don Juan calls "the sorcerer's explanation". It's the explanation of life. All of the awarenesses that have ever been or will ever be, exist, he says, like barges floating in the ocean. It's a nice analogy. They're all just floating out there, the only difference is they're not solid barges, and as they're floating in that ocean out there they can actually pass through each other. So you can have 20 barges and they're floating along, but they're so light and so fluid that they can actually go through each other. They are all the time, but they're not in any fixed order. There is no order, it just is, and that's what reality is. It's just infinite awareness, infinite consciousness." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Talk

Neutral Density

"The universe is actually alive. It is intelligence -- an intelligence that far surpasses anything that has yet been seen or dreamed or imagined. And you enter into that intelligence. You are it. You're a reflection of it. But to see it all, to be it, to be that totality -- that's what attracts a few of us to perpetually go forward into it. And it's neither moral nor amoral, good nor bad. It's not an achievement. It's just what you're drawn to. We're drawn back to the sea of eternity ... and along the way there are places you can get stuck." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Talk

Unity

"There are two forces at work in the universe -- unity and diversity. Unity is enlightenment. Diversity is illusion or maya, ignorance…. So we could say that, when you step out of enlightenment -- you could say out of grace, if you’re religious -- we step into the world of diversity. We see things as separate…. So then, your journey is to unity, and you need to think more about unity and focus on it. How do you go about perceiving unity? Well, when you stop thought, that’s unity. Thought is diversity. Where else will you find unity? You’ll find it first and foremost in your heart -- in love. Love is the strongest power in the universe. Love is unity." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
