Enlightenment for Two-TM:Your Relationship as a Spiritual Practice





Al was blessed with an enlightenment experience in January 2008, a culmination of almost 40 years of spiritual quest. It was transmitted into Pala within minutes. This is what we are naming Enlightenment for Two™. Our relationship has been our spiritual practice for over 20 years that we have been together, and the primary form of that spiritual practice has been sacred sexuality (Tantric and Taoist). This is a unique spiritual path because two people can undertake the journey together, compared with most other spiritual practices that are done alone.

This website is our primary vehicle through which we are reaching out to the world with the good news: Enlightenment for Two™ can be for you. We will do everything we can to share with you (accurately, simply, and with humility) the story of our spiritual quest, our illumination and realization of enlightenment. We will endeavor to share with you: 1) a description and discussion of what enlightenment is as well as our personal account of the experience; 2) any methods we used that we believe to have been significant in helping us to awaken; 3) suggest specific actions, practices and exercises by which you may awaken to your own experience of enlightenment.

10 Steps to Full Enlightenment
 
When one who has been enlightened speaks, there are things he can say with relative certainty--as much certainty as is possible while still in a body in this world. There are other things he can say with considerable authority, but not with certainty. There are also things he would like to be able to say, but they are much more speculative--not without value, but subject to a great deal more disagreement and interpretation of meaning. 
 
It is quite helpful if a guru identifies which degree of authority is attached to statements that they make. This is very much more important if the guru is in and out of the enlightened state rather than in the enlightened state more or less continuously. Generally, statements made while in the enlightened state can be made with relative certainty. Statements made based upon remembering what was seen and known while in the enlightened state carry significant authority, but not certainty.
 
It is when statements are made as to method and techniques for helping others attain enlightenment that even a guru speaks speculatively, whether in the enlightened state or not. No one, including all enlightened gurus, can say with certainty how anyone else can gain entry to the circle of enlightened beings.
 
All enlightened human beings say exactly the same thing; they each just speak a different language.

Spiritual Questions - What is death?
 
What is the sound of one hand clapping? The Sound of one hand clapping is the sound of one hand clapping. What? Is that it? Yes, all of it.

Where is the Buddha? This is the Buddha! Preposterous, but nonetheless true.

Shiva/Shakti - I AM THAT. So are YOU.

“I am the Father and the Son.” The Book of Mormon, 1830, Ether 3:14

Death – there is no death. “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Corinthians xv. 55).i Death is the dissolution of that which has no substance, a simple change from one state to another, before and after a storm, a light on or a light off, take the blue suit off and put the black suit on: “…whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:10-21) “Whoever shall find the interpretation of these words shall not taste of death.” (Gospel of Thomas 1, and John 8:49-51)

Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent (the material body) there is no endurance and of the eternal (the soul) there is no change. That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul. For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain. As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones. All created beings are unmanifest in their beginning, manifest in their interim state, and unmanifest again when annihilated. So what need is there for lamentation?ii Bhagavad-gita

Fill a sink or tub or any large container with water. Scoop a cup of water from the larger container; this is birth. Sprinkle some water around the space you are in; this is living a mortal life. Empty the remaining water from your cup back into the larger container; this is death. That is all there is to it, nothing more, nothing less. Any meaning during your life is bestowed upon your life by yourself, created and manifested by yourself, in complete freedom. More....
