There is a good deal of confusion around the notion of enlightenment. Ask 10 spiritual leaders what enlightenment means and you will get 10 different answers. Ask your average spiritual seeker and you get the “deer in headlights” look that is not the result of introspective bliss. It appears that most people use the word almost offhandedly and yet when it comes down to it, most people don’t have a clear idea of what enlightenment really is. Because it is almost universally misunderstood I do not often use the word “enlightenment” in my writing. But I do write about the topic frequently and subsequently have developed a practical and easy to understand definition for enlightenment. This is doubly important because people doing QE experience enlightenment and need a clear understanding of what they are undergoing.
The basic ingredient for enlightenment is awareness, but not just any awareness. Enlightenment springs naturally from an expanded awareness different from the common consciousness, or waking state of awareness we normally experience. This expanded awareness is not at all mystical. In fact, this expanded awareness, which I call pure awareness, can be established scientifically. (See: Physiological Effects of Transcendental Meditation, Robert Keith Wallace, Science Magazine, March 27, 1970) Pure awareness is a fourth major state of awareness along with the waking, sleeping, and dreaming states of awareness. When you experience pure awareness you get the deepest rest possible, deeper even than deep sleep, and the healing benefits for both body and mind are remarkable.
Pure awareness is the bridge between common consciousness and enlightenment. When you do Quantum Entrainment® (QE®) you start where you are in common consciousness. Then slipping quickly into pure awareness you open easily to awareness of Eufeeling. Eufeeling is a delightful mixing of common consciousness and pure awareness. It gives you both the deep healing and harmony of pure awareness along with a heightened appreciation for life. Even the most mundane activities like walking and eating and working take on a gratitude and gladness that transcends the stress and anxiety of normal living. When through QE, you become aware of Eufeeling and begin living your life in greater prosperity and joy, I consider that enlightenment. This living in awareness of Eufeeling is called QE Awareness. And now you have a clear definition of enlightenment and an understanding of how it works.
