Day 100: “Exploring the Illusion of Enlightenment: Pseudo-Enlightenment in Different Forms” – Message from Master Oneness

Pseudo-enlightenment can occur when individuals believe that they have attained a state of spiritual enlightenment, but in reality,  they have only scratched the surface of their spiritual journey

A false sense of enlightenment can be dangerous if the individual believes they have already reached the end of their journey and stopped seeking further growth.

One of the main reasons why people fall into the trap of pseudo-enlightenment is because they mistake certain experiences for enlightenment, such as the feeling of oneness with the universe, intense emotional highs, or visions of light and colors. While these experiences can be part of the spiritual journey, they do not necessarily equate to enlightenment, which is a deeper and more profound realization of the nature of existence.

Another reason why people may mistake pseudo-enlightenment for the real thing is that they may believe that they have all the answers or that they have transcended the limitations of the ego. However, true enlightenment involves a continual process of self-discovery, where the individual acknowledges their limitations, flaws, and biases and works to transcend them.

Moreover, pseudo-enlightenment can be perpetuated by spiritual communities or gurus who claim to have all the answers and sell their teachings as the only path to enlightenment. This can lead individuals to blindly follow these teachings without questioning or exploring them further.

In contrast, true enlightenment involves a continuous process of self-exploration and seeking, where the individual is open to learning from different sources and perspectives. It involves embracing humility and recognizing that there is always more to learn and discover.

Therefore, it is essential to be aware of the potential pitfalls of pseudo-enlightenment and to approach spiritual growth with an open mind and a willingness to learn and grow continually.

psychedelic and Psedo Enlightenment:

Psychedelics alter a person’s perception and consciousness, leading to profound changes in thoughts, emotions, and sensory experiences. When taken in the right setting and dosage, they can induce altered states of consciousness that some people may describe as mystical or spiritual experiences.

During a psychedelic experience, individuals may feel a sense of interconnectedness, unity, and transcendence of the self, leading to a feeling of oneness with the universe. They may also experience a dissolution of boundaries between themselves and others, leading to feelings of empathy and compassion. These experiences can be profound and transformative, and many people report positive changes in their attitudes, behaviors, and relationships after using psychedelics.

However, it is important to note that these experiences are not necessarily indicative of true enlightenment or spiritual awakening. While psychedelics can provide a glimpse into a different way of experiencing the world, they do not necessarily lead to sustained changes in behavior or perspective.

Additionally, the use of psychedelics carries certain risks and potential harms, including the risk of psychological distress, psychotic-like experiences, and adverse effects on mental health. The use of psychedelics should always be approached with caution and only under the guidance of the right master or guide.

In summary, while psychedelic experiences can be profound and transformative, they should not be confused with true enlightenment or spiritual awakening. True spiritual growth and enlightenment require sustained effort and a commitment to personal growth and self-awareness, rather than relying on external substances or experiences to induce temporary states of consciousness.

How Temporary Pleasures Can Lead to False Enlightenment:

Satisfaction from eating your favorite food, experiencing the effects of psychedelics, or feeling pleasure from sex or the death of a loved one can create the illusion of freedom or enlightenment.

After satisfying your cravings for food or sex, you may feel like you don’t need anything anymore, and for a few moments, you feel free. Even when tempted by more food, you may not desire to eat anymore, and when fully satisfied with sex, you may not want it again for a while. The death of a loved one can give you grief and detachment from the material world.

For a brief moment, you feel content and empty, without desires, needs, or wants, which can lead to a pseudo-enlightenment experience. During this time, you might ponder that life is simple, and everything is temporary. You may question why you get excited about temporary pleasures and realize that you don’t need much to be happy.

However, after a few hours, you may crave the same things again, and the cycle of striving for desires continues.

Pseudo-enlightenment through satisfaction is an interesting one, as it highlights the fleeting nature of your desires and how they can sometimes lead you to believe you have achieved a state of enlightenment. It is true that when you experience moments of complete satisfaction, you feel a sense of freedom from your desires and a temporary detachment from the material world.

However, it is important to note that this sense of enlightenment is temporary and not sustainable. The satisfaction you experience through food, sex, or any other means is short-lived and does not lead to lasting inner peace or spiritual growth. It is more like a temporary escape from the daily struggles of life, rather than a true state of enlightenment.

In addition, relying solely on external sources for your satisfaction can lead to a cycle of craving and disappointment, as you become addicted to the temporary highs and constantly seek out more to satisfy your desires. This can lead you further away from true enlightenment, which requires you to look inward and cultivate a sense of inner peace and contentment.

Therefore, while the experience of pseudo-enlightenment through satisfaction can be a useful reminder of the impermanence of your desires, it should not be seen as a substitute for true spiritual growth and self-awareness.

“The Path to Enlightenment: A Journey of Growth and Self-Discovery”

Enlightenment is often described as a state of profound understanding and realization, but it is important to understand that it is not a fixed or final destination. Rather, it is an ongoing process of growth and self-discovery that can continue throughout a person’s life. Even individuals who have experienced profound moments of realization may continue to face challenges and processes in their spiritual journey.

Approaching the path to enlightenment requires a certain level of humility, as one must recognize that there is always more to learn and discover. This includes being open to new ideas and perspectives, as well as being willing to challenge one’s own assumptions and beliefs. Without humility, it can be easy to become stuck in fixed beliefs or dogma, which can limit one’s growth and progress.

Integrity is also an important aspect of the path to enlightenment. This involves being true to oneself and one’s values, as well as being honest and authentic in one’s relationships with others. Living with integrity requires a commitment to doing what is right, even in the face of difficulty or opposition.

Cultivating a daily practice of self-awareness and compassion is also essential to the path to enlightenment. This can include practices such as meditation, mindfulness, and yoga methods, which help to cultivate greater self-awareness and a deeper understanding of oneself. It also involves cultivating compassion towards oneself and others, recognizing that all beings are interconnected and that the suffering of one affects us all.

Rather than focusing on achieving a specific state or outcome, the path to enlightenment is about embracing the journey and being present in the moment. This involves letting go of attachment to specific outcomes or goals, and instead being open to the unfolding of the present moment. This can help cultivate a greater sense of peace and contentment in one’s life, and can ultimately lead to a deeper understanding of oneself and the world around you.

Simple steps to your enlightenment: 

  1. Be true to yourself: This means being authentic and honest with yourself, acknowledging your thoughts, feelings, and desires without judgment or self-criticism.
  2. Do what you say and say what you do: This refers to being accountable and reliable in your actions and words, keeping your promises, and following through on commitments.
  3. Express your truth and be open to others’ truth: This means communicating honestly and openly, without fear of judgment or rejection, and being receptive to different perspectives and ideas.
  4. Never conclude or be controlled by a fixed mind: This means being open-minded and flexible, willing to adapt to new information and change your beliefs or opinions if necessary.
  5. Offer your gifts and values unconditionally: This means sharing your talents, skills, and knowledge freely and without expectation of reward, and living in alignment with your values and principles.

Actually, Every person experiences moments of freedom, liberation, and enlightenment in their life, so enlightenment is not a rare or unattainable thing. It can be sustained by referring back to those moments of clarity. Simply live life as it is and explore every detail of it. By doing so, you can sustain your enlightenment beyond mere pseudo-enlightenment.
