Spiritual Enlightenment is not the Preserve of Ascetics and Life-Long Monks.

My name is Steven Lloyd. I was born in 1965 and I grew up in a regular family in the materialistic west (UK). I went to a Christian school but had little interest in such ‘control dogmas’. I felt early on that the Bible was confusing and that the spiritual values therein were widely ignored by mainstream society. I would discover much later that Christ’s (Jeshua Melchizedek’s) Ascension teachings were removed from the Holy Bible by the Council of Nicea in 325AD. Christ did not die on the cross but in fact ascended from the Giza portal in 27AD after his work as a translator for the MCEO (Melchizedek Cloister Emerald Order) was completed.

When I was 21 I found myself in a very confused and depressed state. I had been working and saving quite a lot of money, but contrary to popular myth, these things were not making me at all happy. I quit my job and started reading about mysticism. Mysticism, contrary to popular misconception, is not anything to do with magic, spirits or hocus pocus, but is in fact a field of knowledge relating the the ‘Law of One’, or the belief that the cosmos is an essential unity and that it is possible to realize that unity experientially.

I focused principaly on a book called, ‘The Way of Zen’ by Alan Watts and did the ‘inner work’ as I went along. After just a couple of weeks of solitary contemplation I experienced several states of mystical union. I believe that anyone who has the desire and commitment to do this can do so. These are the steps that I took:

1. Earmark a couple of weeks where you can be completely quiet and focused.

2. Stop thinking of yourself as a postman, a sister, a liberal, a father etc. these are all arbitrary identities. Your ultimate identity is being one with God, so identify with the infinite eternal ONE. You ARE God in human form.

3. Let go of all ego attachments and negative feelings. Let go of desire, resentment, jealousy, hatred, greed etc.  Total and absolute forgiveness of self and others is crucial for the sake of healing and inner tranquility. The mind needs to be like a completely still pool which reflects the universe in a totally clear and undistorted way.

4. Forget about the past and the future. The only time there ever is is NOW so focus your entire awareness in the now. Time is simultaneous; the past, present and future are all occurring in this moment.

5. Recognize the infinite blessing that life is, and all of the countless things you have to be grateful for. Gratitude is very important in raising your frequency, in recognizing the miracle of your life and in precipitating transcendence.

6. Ponder the paradox of your existence. How could you have appeared out of nothing? Think about how God has ALWAYS existed; how could this be?

7. Attempt to transcend duality. Left and right, up and down, right and wrong, better and worse, me and you, are all examples of dualistic thinking and are a function of an arbitrary, relativistic point in space-time. When the Absolute identity is realized there is no duality or relativity. Everything is part of the whole and is not defined in terms of its relationship to other aspects of the whole, it just IS.
