The Day After Enlightenment. Awakening to the natural state is the beginning, not the end.

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
― Socrates

This one's long, but it's important!

Our topic — “The Day After Enlightenment: The Natural State is the beginning, not the end.”

Many of us may have heard or gotten the impression that, once you’ve managed to develop the capacity to move into and hold the Awakened state, somehow, magically, you are then done with your work. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Being able to hold the Awakened state is simply the first step to the real work, which is to deal with one’s samskara (subliminal memory traces), those patterns that live in the unconscious and exert control over one’s thoughts and behavior.

This is the REAL WORK, and without it an individual is still subject to unconscious conditioning that will continue to run their lives.

If a person does not address these samskara, they will crystallize around the Awakened state to the detriment of the person and to those around them.

Let’s see what we can do to avoid this trap and use the Awakened state for the tool that it is.
