"Enlightenment simply exists, and if you would like to attain it, if you would like to go beyond suffering, pain, frustration, and the limited happiness that can be experienced in any form, then you need to journey to enlightenment." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“Power is the active force in life. It is the force of life that makes awareness. Power is the band that we perceive things on. In radio we have AM stations, FM stations, short wave stations and others. They’re frequencies. Frequencies vibrate at specific rates, and within those frequencies we transmit information and receive information. Perception is made up of bands (like radio stations). It’s a way of talking about it.
"There are many bands of perception in the universe. There are both organic and inorganic bands of perception. Today we’re confining ourselves to the organic band of perception, specifically to the human band of perception, but I just want you to know that it is possible to modify your awareness field so you can perceive what plants perceive, what birds perceive, what beings in the astral perceive, what beings in the causal perceive... The kundalini is the energy that opens up the bands of perception.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
In advanced meditation we are trying to undo the most perfect perceptual states because we realize they are still limited. In advanced practice, we come back to all those things we set aside in earlier religious/spiritual practices - careers, relationships, etc. - to experience/see/know that God exist in all things.
What the teacher does is enable the being to compact their life, strengthen it, get all the junk out of it and to learn to be happy, free and strong. Then gradually the teacher guides the student to step into other dimensional realities to stand and gaze with awe and wonder at the universe.
The On the Road with Rama transcripts capture the words of a wonderful tape set recorded in 1985 at different power places in the United States. Rama -Dr. Frederick P. Lenz specifically chose each location because the place emanated the essence of the topic he wished to discuss. Topics include Neutral Density, Unity, Magic, Electronic Tribe, Kundalini Yoga, Power and Transcendentalism.
In 1986, as Rama - Dr. Frederick P. Lenz prepared for a major public lecture series, he sought to present a path to enlightenment that would be most understandable to the largest group of people. He selected Zen as most relevant to his current and future students and called his teachings "Tantric Zen." Of the 18 transcribed talks contained in this book, he says:
The Enlightenment Cycle talks, recorded by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz in 1992, are must-have coursework for students of American Buddhism. This book of twelve transcribed talks is a summation, a compressing of knowledge that contains an vast body of information. While each talk covers many subjects, within each discourse is a potent kernel of wisdom that grows upon each reading.
A professional in meditation is someone who is able, no matter what the state of their mind or life, to sit down, meditate, stop thought and enter the quiescent state. But realize that no matter how high you go, no matter how deeply you perceive, you are only touching the bare surface of infinity.
In occultism, we hook ourselves to powers, forces and energies (such as the solstices and equinoxes) to carry us along the way. We are given power by a teacher which if used properly can rapidly accelerate our progress. It is very bad karma not to use the energy from a teacher properly.
