Spiritual Enlightenment: A Delusion?

By Eric Pepin

You’re driving along, minding your own business and all of a sudden the sunset has assaulted your senses with all the color and light of an otherworldly portal. Before you know it you find yourself…contemplating life?

Why do we do that? Is there some spiritual force there, or has the sunset tweaked our brain?

To answer this, we have to explore the feeling. When you saw the colors, the lights, the size… was extraordinary, right? But was what you felt simply the sum of its visual parts, or was there something more?

I’ve talked to hundreds of people who’ve felt the same thing while sitting by themselves, taking a walk in nature, or meditating. They describe a smoldering spiritual presence even without those events. So we know that there is definitely a feeling that many people share.

So what is the feeling?

It comes from something called the ‘Navigator’, which is a fancy name for your brain’s ‘instinctual sense’. The Navigator can feel this macro-spiritual connection if you can stop and pay attention. You don’t feel it all the time because most people just don’t know how to quiet their minds; there’s too much chatter.

It just so happens that a beautiful sunset, with its awe-inspiring colors and light, has the power to stimulate you into that particular state of mind. It’s kind of a wake up call – a reminder, that you’re a part of something big.

But it is also reaching out to you. For that window of time, a spiritual transmission has burst into your reality to reach out to you and anyone who can share in it. Those who are open to those feelings will not limit the fullness of that fantastic moment.

What’s this about communication?

The Universe is one huge living organism. We are all a part of it, just like how the cells in your body are living organisms within you, all living independently, and oblivious of you.

There are subtle forms of ‘communication’ between the parts and the whole. That’s why for example, you can get an ulcer from doing stressful work; the messages you are sending to your cells are erratic and confusing. And that’s why during a sunset you feel like you are shaking hands with God.

Spiritual Desire is also a desire for Answers and Ultimate Truth.

Human Beings are naturally exploratory. Once we explore the area directly around us, we naturally want to know what’s beyond the next hill.

Today, with the information age and the internet, information gaps are closing, and all the out-of-touch religions and folk-beliefs are losing credibility. Although 90% of people are ok with whatever satisfies the spiritual desire, the real seekers are pushing that boundary, hungry to understand greater and greater levels of truth.

True seekers aren’t satisfied with the same old program everyone else seems to be following. There is something beckoning inside, a rebelliousness, to discard everything they’ve been given for something better.

Returning Home

Spiritual Desire also encompasses an inner need to return, like fragments of a shattered whole who all know that they were once part of something whole, and desire to one day return.

The Universe is here to experience life in this dimension. We are all a part of that experience-gathering process. The eventual return to the whole is as natural as the hand that reaches out to collect something shiny to bring it back to the eye to view (Yes, the Universe thinks this dimension is shiny).

That’s one of the reasons meditation is so satisfying, you can go to a place of rest and peace anytime you like, and it gives you a recharge to take on life again.

  1. I had an idea…..

    Suppose you are on a ship far out at sea, and every morning you wake up, you have a breakfast at your cabin door. Do you assume some functionary of the ship is cooking breakfast, or do you presume some sea monster from the sea is providing this meal.
    What I mean is, we are only “aware” of a small portion of our brain’s functioning. “Feeling” god or spirit may be nothing more than a chemical imbalance that enters our awareness through a kind of back door.

  2. Here lies the problem of using the organic brain to to try and understand an inorganic process. We are so conditioned to analyze and interpret our reality and fit it into our limited framework of perception that we have forgotten how to use our instinctual or psychic sense to experience more of the whole of reality.
    This product of conditioning will remain absolute in a majority of the population because they haven’t trained themselves to break free of this matrix orientated way of seeing.
    When you experience love do you question the validity of that experience? Can you adequately put into words the feeling of love? Can you describe organically what you are experiencing?
    It is these experiences that open the door for many to seek out the true nature of our existence. To learn the totality of that which we are.
    There are two choices to make. Either you close the door and continue your life of delusion, or you walk through the door and begin to peel back the layers of your true nature.
    Accept that you are limited only by your acceptance that you are limited.
