Enlightenment or Spiritual awakening is a psychological phenomenon where something of the mind develops, awakens, and unifies, and something else of the mind drops off or surrenders.
Some desire spiritual awakening very directly and indeed, very intensely, but it is very difficult to achieve, because spiritual enlightenment is something that happens rather than something that we do. And on the other hand, spiritual awakening does not really happen by itself. There is always some preparation for some time in whatever form.
Some develop intensity through the development of deep understanding that later leads to more intense curiosity that ultimately leads to seeing through the obstacles of the mind, and then a profound surrender occurs as a permanent state of being. Others develop intensity through desire and developing powerful emotions that may lead to the higher awakened state, where the heart blissfully awakens and unites with consciousness. And still others develop intensity through the proper use of suffering, where suddenly they find themselves transformed into awakened conscious beings.
This short book describes what happens in the actual experience of spiritual awakening and how to prepare and thus speed up the process. The book also discusses the profound benefits of enlightenment, powers associated with mind development, healing oneself, accomplishing in life, and how to prepare for life after death.
