In advanced meditation we are trying to undo the most perfect perceptual states because we realize they are still limited.

This is a book of 27 transcripts recorded by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz from 1989 to 1990.

In self-discovery we seek to go beyond the limited self and experience the clear light of reality. You do not need to know who or what you want to become. You simply need to dissolve. The clear light will take care of the rest.
Enlightenment is achieved through a great deal of self-effort. You must go through every step of the self-discovery process. You must win the ecstasy; you must win the freedom, through your self-effort.
