I wanted to share a few books which might help some in their awakening.
If you only take one piece of advice from the Ra material, let it be the realization that meditation is key – ‘the’ key.
If you read the gospels of Jesus and the story of Buddha’s awakening, it points in the same direction.
But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.
At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days…
Buddha meditated continuously for 49 days under the Bodhi tree until he awakened.
For other lesser known awakened sages whose existence here on earth didn’t lead to the formation of mainstream religions, the story is the same.
Ramana Maharsi, Dōgen Zenji, Nāgārjuna, Zhuangzi, Lao Tzu, Rumi, Hakuin Ekaku, Bô Yin Râ, Meister Eckart, Epictetus, Socrates, Saint Teresa of Avila…. and hundreds more, some known, some not.
What Christians refer to as “the grace of God”, Zen masters call “wu-wei”. It is an ease of living, and an inner peacefulness, which enters into the life experience of a meditator which has penetrated “the emptiness, the infinite invisible, the eternal present moment” or any other description which have been attempted to describe the ineffable.
Jesus simply said “I have meat to eat that ye know not of”.
Hope these books help you.
