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.
The Caretaker Personality (PD3)
Places of Power (PD5)
"Personal power is a feeling -- a feeling that everybody wants called satisfaction. We can see it in someone who has a powerful life, someone who is able to get what they want to get or avoid what they want to avoid. That's one level of personal power. Now naturally, there's an entirely different level of personal power when we enter into the world of the psychic, the world of the occult, the world of the spiritual. Here personal power is the ability to enter into different planes of reality.
"Why do that? Because knowledge lies in those other dimensions. Power lies in those other dimensions. Beauty. Everything that's here and more. It's part of your world, that's why. It's part of the universe. It's part of you. Everything that is, is part of you. And as you pass through the other dimensions, you get an education, and you change and you grow." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Next to meditation itself, next to the practice of zazen, I really can't think of anything more important than the development of your career, because nothing has a greater effect on your awareness level. Whether your career is in the work force or your career is retirement and hobbies, looking after a family, a nation, a universe, it's all the same. We're talking about the major focus of your life (and) your time. Your career affects your awareness far more than you realize." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"So how can you possibly be happy? That's why you've got to study Zen. Or something. I mean call it what you want to, but it has to be a way in which you can discover you, so you cannot distinguish yourself from anything or anyone else. Because you, as we both know, think you're somebody, and that's where the problem begins. Because you're really not somebody, you're everybody." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“Why does a person experience stress? Stress occurs because that which is within you -- which is light, intelligence, energy -- wants to do certain things and doesn't want to do other things. And that changes. Stress is a result of the fact that you're out of tune with your life and your inner being. If you are doing that which is within you, what that part of you that is beyond (the) body would like you to do, then you would not experience stress, because you would be very fulfilled." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Meditation is the process of stilling the outer surface mind so that you can become aware of the deeper mind within, which has all the answers. Your deeper mind knows everything already. If you can gain control of the surface mind, then the deeper mind will control the surface mind… it will send it the right thoughts and inspirations and feelings…. That deeper mind will direct you. And if you follow its directions, once you've learned to get in touch with it, then you will overcome stress. That is my solution to stress.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"It's not special to be enlightened. It's just different. An enlightened person is someone who has dedicated not just this lifetime, but thousands of lifetimes to becoming awareness. They see through the mysteries of life and understand them -- and what the enlightened person sees, no one could ever tell or describe. Wonder beyond belief." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“Karma, first of all, is engendered by states of mind. It’s best to think of karma, not so much in terms of physical action, but as waveforms of vibratory energy. Karma is your own energy -- the energy patterns that emanate from your life, from your actions, from your thoughts, feelings and desires…. If you could see the earth from a vibratory point of view and not be distracted by the physical, you would see something like radio waves, billions of them, cascading constantly in very complex patterns all over the earth. These waves are emitted from the thoughts, feelings and actions of each individual life form here. That's what karma is.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
