Before enlightenment, disciplines were used to help us reach the point where would become our primary agent of control. Now these same disciplines to help us tune and align our bodies so that we might experience life more fully.
Becoming awakened is an easy thing compared to doing something with it. An awaken person knows that there is nothing to do and at the same time knows that they’re here in this focused consciousness as an emissary of Source in this time space place. Even though the physical world is little more than a holographic illusion Sources uses for its enjoyment, it is important to experience this playground fully. We experience it more fully when we take time each day to align our physical, emotional, and mental bodies with Source.
There are countless ways of doing this from spending time in nature, take a few moments for quiet contemplation, meditation, listening to music, reading good literature, or a hundred other activities. It doesn’t matter so much what activity do you choose as much as it is the fact that you intentionally align with Source.
Some argue that once one has reached an enlightened state that there is no need for further practice of the spiritual disciplines. But this is true only in the special sense that one is no longer seeking enlightenment through the practice of the disciplines. Before enlightenment, the disciplines were used to help us come to the point necessary for Source to become our primary agent of control. Once this has occurred, we use these same disciplines to help us tune and align our bodies so that we might experience life more fully aware.
