Light

Beyond duality, there is no darkness, no evil. There is only light - white light and black light (like the light between the stars). If you focus on light exclusively, then you will experience and become ecstasy!

Transience

Everything is transient - meaning it does not last. We are transient in this life. Everything and everyone we know will change their current form. This knowledge gives us the freedom to go and do what we truly want.

Modular Mysticism: Storing Power

"In the practice of mysticism there are four stages. The first stage is gaining power. The second stage is avoiding the loss of power. The third stage is storing power. And the fourth stage is giving power.

"I've talked a great deal about gaining power and losing power. But one subject I haven't dealt with is how to store power. That's what I'd like to talk to you a little bit about….When I say, "store power," what I mean is you are going to take awareness and consciousness and go into another plane of reality with it and leave it there and draw on it. There are many, many ways to do this. Tonight I'd like to allude to a few of them." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

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

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
