Enlightenment 101: From Ignorance to Grace by Jan Esmann (Author)


Why a book about fallacies? Why be so negative and focus on what is wrong? Well, first of all because correcting wrong notions is an important part of any teaching, second because it becomes an excuse to propose correct understanding in the context of misunderstanding.

For this reason, I have examined common ideas and beliefs that have become widely accepted , but which upon closer examination are seen to be fallacious. Here are a few examples:

* Our only obstacle keeping us from fully awakening is our mind – therefore we must stop the mind.

* To attain Spiritual enlightenment, you must still your mind, detach from all the worldly distractions.

* The very entry point into the ego-less state or the enlightened state is the present moment. The ego can only be transcended by accessing the present moment.

* Our own intense emotions – even negative ones – can be a path for spiritual growth towards enlightenment.

* The common basic definition of enlightenment is that the enlightened one lives in total and constant contact with the divine, that this person’s ego is permanently dissolved in divine ecstasy, and that the person in all acts and words is a pure channel for the divine energy.

* Enlightenment is the understanding that I am everything that is.

* Enlightenment is a process of peeling back the many layers of the ego to experience your true radiant infinite Self.
