Enlightenment: a degree of Perception


The energy of creation; that which creates everything we see as a solid thing or has taken form of some ‘thing’ or another including everything we can’t see, is pure, raw, focused and extremely intelligent; we have labeled it God, Source, Universe and a myriad of other names but all fall short of the true nature of it. It must be explained, though, that its intelligence is not that which we can understand unless our focused attention is put upon it. It rests upon a degree of perception.

Humanity, with the proper use of its body and mind is the extension of that pure, raw, focused and extreme intelligence. The issues of this world we live in; the wars, politics, religion, family issues, mental and physical sickness are a direct result of humanity forgetting and walking away from the very thing that created and gave it life in the first place; we have replaced an enlightened life with things of a spiritual nature simply because we now lack the truth and understanding of life itself; and yet it is clearly visible for all to see.

Enlightenment is not spiritual

The difference between a spiritual life, and the almost mindless and endless journey it involves, and a life enhanced by enlightenment is one in which the slightest change in a degree of perception will make the difference. The journey ceases in an instant and enlightenment takes its natural place within the human body; a life changes to one of peace, joy, eternal love, and creativity; focused and purposeful, our lives become one with creation and the energy that created it; humanity will eventually come back to discover its origin. This is not to say, though, that a spiritual life is incorrect; spirituality is the search for enlightenment but to believe that spirituality is the truth is the error and the same applies to religion. Spirituality is nothing but another degree of perception which can lead you to enlightenment or, because of an ego driven mind, may remain in the endless journey of spiritual discoveries that have no real meaning or life application at all. The most common expression I hear within spiritual circles is “I am God”, but within an enlightened life, God ceases to exist as you become one with it; in many cases, this process humbles the ego which it may like or not. As a person discovers enlightenment, the ego ceases to exist in its present form; a transmutation occurs as and when that person lets go of what they believe to be true.

The ‘presence’ of enlightenment is not as spiritual as one may think. It includes and involves the recognition of the physical body including the brain and the heart, and recognition of the mind and the discovery of what the mind actually is; the mind being the most misrepresented parts of the human physical system in most resent years.

The Mind

The mind, as currently taught by many, is that part of us that thinks, but this is where things go incredibly awry. Here is the first change of perception and possibly the most important! The mind does not think…it observes thought without any involvement with the thoughts at all. It also doesn’t feel anything; again, it only observes thought and feeling. The brain is there to create thoughts and the heart is there to create feelings felt within the body. The best description of the mind I have ever heard is “The mind is the energy that creates and manifests everything the body thinks, feels and believes to be true to about itself and to itself”. If you can visualize the human body as the lens of a magnifying glass and the mind as the ‘thing’ focusing it, as the suns energy passing through it, the mind focuses the body to create a flame using the energy of the sun; the more the magnifying glass (human body) is focused by the use of its mind the better the result, otherwise the suns energy is always out of focus and the result takes far longer to manifest, if at all.

This brings into question then, “What is the human mind?” It is that part of us that has always been one with the energy that creates all we see as form and solid; it is the focused energy I spoke about in the introduction; it is the pure, raw, focused and extremely intelligent energy that is outside of us, but condensing within the human body, giving it life. It is moving through us all the time; we are not it (that’s the ego making its self important) but it is us! That’s the same as the spiritual paradox which states “Man is not God; God is man”. Biblically, as Jesus stated “I am one with the Father and the Father is one with me”.

But just as the perception of Oneness applies to the energy that created ‘it all’, the same applies to the human body, all of its components and the mind that directs it. If we can’t bring it all together within ourselves then we suffer badly either physically and/or psychologically. I will repeat what I have stated “The first change of perception must be in relation to what we perceive the mind actually is”. How to change the perception of the mind requires a bit of reeducation and the practice of using it as it was meant to be used. The mind screams at us, at times, to allow it to come back home to what it actually is and this creates emotional and physical dysfunction. We are humans; living in frail bodies with an unlimited intelligence we have not experienced for thousands of years; the mind is one with that intelligence if only you could let go of what you believe. You will either allow yourself to experience it now (or in the present moment) or you will discover it while taking your last breath. Which is it to be?

It is a Challenge or a Calling?

That last statement was not meant to put fear into you; but it is more of a challenge. The challenge is this: “Will you live life to its fullest now, or will you wait until you have no choice?” I can say this with experience; you stand so much more to gain by losing all that you believe to be true. Most of what you lose you didn’t need anyway, but you will discover that what you retain will be expanded upon to such an extent that it takes on a completely different form of intelligence living within the brain. Life then becomes something to look forward to living; your physical body, brain and heart are now working in unison with the intelligence of creation; you have become enlightened. It isn’t as spiritual as you may have thought; it’s just a change of perception, with your mind now back where it wants to be; one and at peace with itself; it is calling you back!

What does that mean for you, living a real life in a real world? Complete freedom from and/or ease of emotional disturbances that are pulling you back into a life you don’t desire to live. In short, you reinvent your whole life; excitement to be alive, with the entire creativeness that you are, takes a definite hold. If you have a business or in a relationship that is suffering, you will breathe the life back into them that you experienced when you first created them; or you may be physically suffering some sort of ailment hindering the enjoyment of life and that too can be healed. It’s really not as spiritual as you may think and certainly not as inaccessible as you may have been experiencing. “Will you learn to live life to its fullest now, or will you wait until you have no choice?” “To be or not to be that is the question” (thanks William), what’s your choice?

I do understand how all of this works and you may be feeling the call to discover more about yourself and enjoying an enlightened life, if this is the case please feel free to contact me on 0474 570 063 or email me at tonykanecounselling@gmail.com.
