Ironically I'm not even a Buddhist... =)

Thank you for clarifying. I'm by no means an expert on the details or semantics of the terminology, but the state you describe is very accurate to how I feel.



I know you're not buddhist, but that doesn't change what you've achieved. Those are just names for the same thing.
And if we are at it, my question is this;
What is your view on sexuality? I mean we, people, have so many wrong ideas about that, and mostly use it for selfish means. How do you see it now, free of all the religious dogma and also free of selfishness?
Thank you.

I think it is fun and interesting to read others people accounts, because you are all the same yet not one of us will experince it the same.

Blessings to you young one,

Welcome to your next level. It is a wonderful feeling to have experienced, for you have had a glimpse into the higher realms. As you have entered into the realm of flow and change, you have entered into the second level of four on your search for Spirit or True Enlightenment, ie Ascension. It is beautiful that you have chosen to help others to understand the possibility of the higher vibrations you are commended in your effort.

In your basic understanding of what has happened to you, you have experienced the connection to the ONE, the I AM, and the experience that you have had gave you impressions of having gone home as you had previously had no frame of reference. What has happened is you have taken the next step.

This realm is of the Element of Water, thus the blue energy around you. This is the realm of the cleansing of your Soul, Heart, Mind, and Body. It is of Change and the Understandings of the fluidity of Life within the ONE. As this is your next step you must know it and that means returning often and becoming ONE with it as you have within this the Element of Earth.

In the attempt to help you Understand what you have experienced and to what extent, might you envision a public aquarium. One that has a Bubble that one may climb into in order to experience the aquarium from the inside. A 3D vision of the Water around you. This realm is much the same with the exception of instead of looking into an aquarium you are looking into the Akashic records.

In order to move on to the next level you must find Balance within it as you have in the Earth Element. Understand it and be one with it. Understand that this is but the next step not the ultimate goal. Just as the next level of Understanding is the Element of Fire or Love and Peace and the next level is the Element of Air or Purity, and finally the Element of Spirit or True Oneness of your Being to the One.

With your experience you have come to understand the difference of vibration between the levels and with this, an Understanding of that experience multiplied with each level you "Ascend" to. You have found the "Silence Within". Be ONE with it and you will enter into the Akashic records of Knowledge and ONENESS of all Knowledge.

Welcome Brother, the ONE awaits you. And always remember the ONE Principle of the I Am.

Agarta

Definitely!

I'm not really into astrology, but this is an interesting read.

Yeah. I'm not really into astrology either but it is interesting.

"I really feel we will only gain, eternally, if we start aligning with the cosmos and their orders/cycles. I know that during the lunar eclipse...I could not see anything due to weather....but literally, the energy that was 'flowing' was immense. The reasons I think it was so powerful...was due to the directions beyond our Sun and moon, beyond our solar system...reaching far out from the direction of the galactic center and as well reaching in the opposite from this...the anti-galactic center. The Sun and Moon were in this 'line' of energy, as well as the Earth being right in the middle of it all." LeoVirgo

Buddha1098, I think we were zapped by cosmic energy! It took me weeks to get used to being back in my body...and during that time my "Kundalini" energy was through the roof! I was having visions and revelations and recalling past lives and buddha-laughing and so forth. I'm a baby-Buddha.

My question would be why you want additional money in the first place, but my answer would be A) get a higher paying job or B)Sell more art.


I already knew that would be the question. I've studied Taoism for most my adult life. My answer for you is because I have debt and people (corporations) demand payment lol.

I mostly wanted to know what you thought about HOW to sell more art. It's been tough in this economy. I have some great pieces and scant few customers.

I do believe that bodhisattvas can recall past lives, of their own or the others, as well as future lives; and the more they advance on the way, the more they can see and do. Not all liberated persons choose to be monks or hermits; many choose to take an active role in the world, sometimes even anonymous.
I have come to understand bodhisattvas as those who have no call to advance on their way. The selflessness of bodhisattvas is that they return only for others so that all may depart the wheel of illusion. This is what I have come to understand.

I liken bodhisattvas to the good shepard. When 49 have been brought home the good shepard goes to find the last stray. But as I first replied, these are just my thoughts.

This is a wonderful thread. That's a thought too.

Here's another question Buddha1098............

Why didn't you answer my first question?

Stagnation, laziness and procrastination all stem from the desire to serve one's own needs before the needs of others.

Fiddlesticks. They stem from conflicts within the self which are only incidentally to do with others.


Cultivate a spirit of service in your life, once you are genuinely fulfilled by the happiness of others you will become excited by service.

Poppycock. We do not exist to be one another’s servants.

This is just good old Judeo-Christian slave morality, as pilloried by Nietzsche. It isn’t even Buddhist.

You are not an enlightened being; you are a self-deluded one who is now trying, in all innocence, to make others share your delusion.

Greetings and thank you for starting this thread.

I have a question for you in regards to the enlightenment experience. Earlier this year I too had an experience I would term as enlightenment was well. Everything dissolved around me into what can only be described as love and an understanding of the interconnectedness of the universe. Just like you I was given the option to come back and the presence there informed me that I could access this place at any time. Since then, however, I have not been able to return to that place at all. Do you know why this would be? I speculate it is because I got caught up in my material life once again but this brings me to my second question.

I do not consider myself "enlightenment material" in the least. I watch TV every so often, I have some drinks on occasion, I eat meat and indulge in attachment to the physical via my hobby which is bodybuilding. So my question is: Why would I have had an enlightenment experience in the first place? Aren't there people out there dedicating their lives to the betterment of humanity who would deserve to feel what I felt but haven't? Some dedicate their lives to the seeking of enlightenment, why should I be rewarded when they haven't been?

If you need more information I started a thread trying to understand my experiences somewhat recently, here it is: Link

Thank you very much for your time and effort!

Hare Om,

maybe you can really help me with something, that i discovered lately during a tantra exercise. It really puzzled me and i am nearly sure you can tell me, whether this was a good experience that i should consure up more often or if i am going in the wrong direction, haha, which wouldnt surprise me too much....

what i do is, during orgasm i send the energy up the spine - you need a bit of practice for this and trust to your partner, but its nice. just stop the breath and think nothing during sex and orgasm... it totally changes your sex life, haha. well, i got a very strange sensation... everything changed from the inside out. everything felt full of life, very organic, somehow slimy and quite perverse, but not in a bad way. it lasted one ore two seconds and was gone, leaving me a bit shaking. afterwards, in meditation, i conjured it up and saw my body built from - life. everywhere.

now i'm a bit lazy asking you this, but i simply do: Is this feeling, this glimpse i had the real and natural awareness of my own body? do i need to come into this state more and more until its natural for me? honestly it feels nearly too natural and lively for me, but maybe i am just comfortable in my technocratic, anti-natural cleanness state of mind of not feeling the slimy life-force??

Hare Om, thanks for your time, dear, and please take time for my question cause there are not many people i could ask... haha

It is rare to have such a 'love in' in an ATS forum with everyone agreeing. Nice. Blessings...

A few discussion points :
1. A quantum interlink with a universal consciousness would seem to occur to those experiencing this expression called 'enlightenment', your perceptions? ;
2. A growth of such a nature in our world of duality can occur in multiple paths. It would be nice for you to define those paths for those sages interested;
3. Your perception on karma, reincarnation, dimensions beyond the four most perceive...

Welcome dear Internet Buddha. You have joined a very long list of self-declared godmen.

Just curious. How do you know you are enlightened?

Buddhaboy, I want to know how I can let go of certain thoughts. Through meditation I have come to realize how thoughts five rise to feelings. I can't stop having pornographic thoughts even though I have not looked at porn in over 2 years. The thoughts leave me feeling disconnected from other people, nervous, and thinking others are out to get me. How do I get rid of these thoughts?
