You have heard a lot about being illuminated these days as we approach the new age of humanity. Or simply put, people are evolving and starting to ask the important questions. We have been asking them all the time, but now it is more important than ever.
Over the past few years you have started to notice new keywords appear in public. The news, Youtube and other websites are talking about conspiracies. It catches our eyes when we see them talking about some group of people working in secret from us. As if they are hiding something and we have to know what it is. So i will try to explain through metaphors and experiences one part of what it is. The rest is up to you to decide through your own experiences and events in life.
What is illumination?
First of all, what does the illumination mean? What are the illuminated people media and conspiracies are talking about? It has a lot to do with the spiritual awakening, walking the middle path, being woke and other trending new-age topics. Right now people are starting to see that there are some groups who are familiar with these topics and due to lack of understanding they are called out as evil.
These groups show that they are aware of the path through symbolism in movies, music or paintings. That is the only way to show the truth in plain sight, because words are dual, while truth is singular. Symbols transcend words and let you show the meanings of the truth through pictures. That is why one picture is worth a thousand words they say.
Down to the main point of this question, it is a very hard process and no one is born illuminated. It is induced through very hard inner workings also in death of some parts in egoistic self. You can learn about the truth through suffering or through very hard mental work related to giving up on life. It is a hard path to bear and it means that you are awakened to the singular truths of all being. You no longer see the world through black and white starting to understand that it is a part of one thing. You learn to have a choice and enact the part given by the God energy we call the one Self.
In short, illumination is an understanding of the dual principles, no longer acting upon them emotionally. Seeing over the chessboard reality (no longer a pawn on a black and white squares, but a whole new level of perception). You learn to walk the middle path (from the eastern religions and kabbalah) and achieve things with the help of the source energy much faster. You have a lesser ego and learn to work as an angel or a demon.
Awakened people have a choice – become like Jesus and work toward the illumination of others to realize that they are part of the Self (or the God). They can also become the demons, having all the knowledge of the Self and use it for occult purposes trying to destroy the workings of the good guys. And you can walk the middle path, like many monks do, not choosing to participate in the game of life, working toward meditation and further development of the collective Self.
How to start the initiation?
Everything starts as usual – by directing your attention to a goal. This goal should be the attainment of the path. You have to work toward wanting to be illuminated and watch the environment closely. At first you will not know how it happens, but one day you will wake up and the world will show you the right direction. Everyone reading this i have confirmed to myself over the years, are mostly on the right path right now. Because when you are consciously choosing to go in some direction, the world will change around you and you will notice relevant content appear around you. Relevant people and events occur and direct you toward the goal. And these events are either good or bad.
That is why the second step is to learn the ways of how the ego works. I would suggest to start listening to some of Alan Watts talks, because he has knowledge in eastern philosophy and knows how to put things into westerners perspective. Never believe everything that sounds correct before doing your own research. Learn to unlearn and start dividing mind from your body. Watch duality closely, differentiate what is what, divide everything in two polarities so it will be easier to digest the patterns of the inner workings.
The most important part after this is to start doing mental gymnastics – challenge your ego to the point where you don’t know who you are and who is this person looking through the eyes in a mirror. Ask yourself constantly, who are you really? First of all, you are not the legs, eyes or the head. If you remove these parts you are still you. So who are you? Are you the brain? Are you the collection of likes, dislikes, memories and features? Not exactly. You are something who is watching through this body and lives in this body, but when you remove the body, you are still you. You just don’t have the body then.
Then you will come to a conclusion and early realization of what the Self is. Self is the energy which animates the body of all the people, plants, animals – everything! You and them exists only for the purpose of Self to understand what it is. Self is everything and nothing at the same time, but when you put it in different physical bodies, now it can learn about itself. Look at how words yourself, itself, myself are written. Language is a symbol system which helps dissect meanings by playing with the words.
Last method is what the chaos magickians use – the neither-neither principle. When you have some free time, just contemplate everything in life through opposites. For example: Contemplate the existence of good and evil. Think about everything that is good and everything that is evil. Now that you have thought about it in depth, think deeply about what would it be like if there were no good and evil. Now move on to the other topics, like hot and cold, light and dark, up and down. You will start to dissect your ego framework and will reach the gnostic state little by little.
What are the benefits of being illuminated?
So everyone wants to know what do i gain from that, why do i have to work so hard to attain this thing i am not sure about. Is it even useful, will i become one of the guys people are talking about, would people hate me, is this the devil path? These questions are natural to the people who are still in the workings toward the realization of Self. It will get much clearer the longer you go, the mysteries will unravel as you walk the path. But for the curious ones there are a few benefits i can list in words.
Successful leadership requires you to step out of the frame of good and evil, and stay cold hearted while doing things for the common good. That is one of the skills you will have, that is why some leaders in the world are hated for their actions, because people only see the bad side, when there is a good side too. True leader can sacrifice something short term, for the common benefit of all the people in a long term. However, uninitiated people are emotional and focused on the short term outcomes, they misjudge the leader’s workings.
You can be the designer and allow the energy of Self realize itself through you. Become the vessel of creation, turning off your ego like a switch and let your mind show you the ideas never seen before. Get the choice to act upon them or leave them be. You can work for the better good or choose the evil side and look for shortcuts. You will be aware of the karmic principles and every choice you make will show you the path toward which you are going. It can be either heaven or hell, you have the choice to build the heaven on earth for the unitiated people.
You learn to understand time as a human construct. Time is a motion, and the motion flows by itself. It is never wasted, never lost. It is transformed with everything else around the world. Motion is change, and you learn to be a part of it. You will be able to transcend time and leave behind something meaningful to other people. You will learn to control your emotions and focus much better on the common goals of humanity sacrificing your time. Or you can always become a monk, or a spiritual teacher and help more people wake up to the reality of one Self.
Common mistakes and misconceptions
Through the last ten years i have seen a lot of misconceptions surrounding the secret societies, associating illumination or Gnosis with the evil and other mistakes. First of all, i would like to say that the good king is the one whose people think that they have achieved everything themselves. There are a lot of times when the king knows that the people will never know the good he has done and he will be misjudged by the crowd through short term results.
Important notice is that ‘illuminati’ did exist in the 18th century in Bavaria, and they have tried to branch out to other continents. Yes, you can call freemasons the illuminated ones, but the principle of freemasonry is misjudged. They are simply fellow men trying to build the structure of the system and help the lower layers of humanity raise above their capabilities. They work through laying foundations to what we call our society and infrastructure. These men dedicate themselves to philantrophism and better good. They love symbolism and philosophy through which the truth can be seen. And they do ceremony rituals which none of them are satanic or anything like that. It is like a hobby to someone in the crafts field, their hobby is working with mysteries and literature of symbolism.
The crowd chooses one side over the other when they judge something. Simply put, there are no good guys and the bad guys exactly like people understand the concept. To put things into perspective, when you are trying to do something good, it leaves a bad part of something, and vice versa with doing bad, it leaves something good behind. The illuminated ones, either simple humble people, the monks or some leader of the country – they are all in comparison trying to wake other people up.
Interesting to notice that being illuminated occurs through the problematic life, not from the easy life while having everything handled to you. Our system is built that way to wake the bottom people up little by little. So the average vibration of the humanity can level up and we can learn to transcend the human soul over this physical body, find the true Self and become one collective organism as we were before falling into this earth. We are the puzzle pieces learning about itself from the scratch! So bankers, people in the music or movie industry, they are not bad. They can’t just tell you the truth in words, it can only be experiences, so they put symbols and various systems to help you get there by wanting to know more and directing your power toward the goal of attaining the truth.
Principles and structure of the Power Pyramid
The pyramid we see in the symbolism of the illuminated one means a lot of things. Because as said before, symbols contain thousands of words. That is the same if we say one symbol can tell thousand stories to different people. Because our brain work in duality, symbol can be read subjectively in many ways.
So the power pyramid with the eye on top symbolize the structure of every system. Do you want to become like your boss at work? You need the support of the people below you. You have to stand out and have the capability to act on yourself. It looks like people from the top are pulling you up. But actually it works the other way around. People at the top have power through people at the bottom layers of the pyramid. See, you cannot be a leader if there is no one following you. We would end up being 7 billion leaders to our selves.
That principle works in every system. Someone has to be the one at the top and show the path to others. Now that we see the principle at work, we can understand what is the eye and the sun. It is the ultimate goal, to overcome physicality and go toward the light, the truth, become illuminated. And when you become awakened, you learn to lay bricks for the foundation above you. And people below you will give you power, because they will see that you have the capability to show them the way.
No people – no leaders. That is the ultimate conclusion. Bankers or news agencies exist for a reason, because there is demand for it. The majority of people hate to change, they want the good old stuff. That which is always there for their comfort. As long as there is demand for any ridiculous system, there will be structure to fulfill that need. Again, people are the power, and we get what we want in life, even unknowingly, by creating demand with our behaviors.
Laying foundation and the goal of illumination
We come to the core of what does it mean to be illuminated. And that is the core foundation upon which we are laying our future. This section won’t be long and it will strike straight to the point. The main reasons for human race to achieve illumination and realize the one Self.
- Achieve singularity. That means the total overcoming of the physical duality, coming back to the center of creation, becoming one omnipotent being. To transcend time and physical barriers and move to the next evolutionary pace. Singularity is the achievement of everything becoming one. One gender, mechanical biology, one religion, one currency. This is a physical singularity. What we are going towards is the total singularity. Where light and darkness is one and none, where there is no good and evil. Where even existence and non existence is one. It is the grand work and our purpose.
- Loss of ego. Our true nature is the energy which gives life to our bodies, and the ego is transmitted from body to body upon birth through karmic principles. When we achieve Gnosis or illumination, we start understanding that the ego is just a machine through which we have tools to work in this world. And our common goal is to destroy the ego and work toward the common goal as the human beings, not for our own benefit. Because when you benefit others you actually benefit yourself too.
- Evolution. The evolutionary system in this life means one thing. Whatever we do, good or bad, unless we wake up from our ego, is driven by the evolution. Even illumination is a part of duality and evolution. Without awakened people there wouldn’t be the framework through which to understand wakefulness. There must be some people who are living in the darkness for the people in the light to exist. Evolution tells us that whatever we choose in life is always the right path. You can only look back and see your choice and what happened after it. You will never ever know what you are getting into, it is always for your benefit. Evolution can be called the flow of life itself. It shows us the direction and our actions are encoded in the path from our start till the end.
- Becoming the Sun. When humanity transcends through the inner and outer workings, achieving illumination, it will get to the point which will look like an eternal bliss. It will happen as we destroy our egotistic duality, physical illusions and learn the lessons. That is why we are living here right now, to grow our core Self, from the ground level towards the upward spiral in the physical world through the 7 layers of the light. After physical comes the first sub astral plane, after that the others, until we reach the angelic worlds near the Sun. But that is for another time to analyze.
Conclusion, questions for analysis
I have left the simplest part for the conclusion as it should be something that leaves you with more ideas than you have initially started.
The main questions for analysis are:
How does it make the truth beside the other ideas in the world? When everything is done you will be left with no other way to go. While other things describe some good ideas, you will eventually come to the conclusion and the answer yourself. That which is immovable, irreplaceable is the truth. You can run in circles and find the meanings of every topic, but you will end up understanding this particular one at the center of your journey. Everything else just revolves around it.
When will it happen?It feels like the times when we are able to jump through the hoops of this process is happening right now. I am aware that there were always some charlatans trying to earn money by telling the date of the end. But there is nothing like the end we imagine. There is no end, there is no beginning. When all the things will start to mix into one, you will notice. It has started and it is accelerating faster and faster every year.
How will it look like?Try to imagine the darkness without light, the good without bad. How would you define these things without their opposites? It will look like both at the same time, and also none. We cannot imagine with our limited physical bodies how it would look like. Just everything at the same time, and also none. And where is nothing, there is everything. Might be some other reality!
The point of this article is to give a shortcut to those who are going through some troubles, looking for a direct answer to the spiritual journey they embarked long time ago. I do hope that this will clear some things out. The way we are going is scary, and for a good reason. Have you noticed that we are scared before something important? And when we deal with the situation we feel so relieved and grown up. That is where we are going as humanity.
It is like your job interview, but the whole humanity is applying for it. Planets have bodies and souls too, we will become something like one Self under the Earth’s name. And the Earth with our help will grow up to the next stage of evolution. The human experience is very important, we are the tools for the Self to grow up. We are this Self.
I will end with the old saying. “Do unto others as youwould have themdo unto you.”. It is you in a different body having conversation with another you, and learning more about the Self. Your Self.
