Not Anti-Religious — Simply Pro Consciousness Development

“I am not anti-religious. In fact, I am thankful for the traditions that have preserved and protected the teachings of the ancient spiritual technologies.  

These are processes for expanding awareness and opening the doors of consciousness. Many ancient cultures conducted research into nature of consciousness and awareness.  In turn, religion created mythologies in an attempt to commuincate this knowledge. So, I’m not discounting the essence of the stories about Krishna, Mythra, Apollo, Zeus or Jesus.  The analogies and metaphors within these mythologies are intended to point us to the transcendent. So, again, I am not anti-religious. I’m simply pro consciousness development.” — Guru Tua

Pro Consciousness Development Not Anti-Religious

If you are not anti-religious, but pro consciousness development.  This means you able to glean the meaning of the mythology within a given religion without mistaking metaphors for facts.  Being pro consciousness development means using processes to unlock the amazing spiritual gifts sleeping within. Whether these gifts are part of our DNA or spiritual or other states does not matter.  The rational mind, confined to ordinary reality, isn’t aware of them. But, you can learn about them and awaken them through the spiritual technologies passed down through the ages.

What are Spiritual Technologies?

In essence, spiritual technologies are methods of developing your potential.  In short, these mental tools focus on expanding awareness and consciousness.  And, these processes stand up to the test of science – repeatable and measurable. Anyone can use them. It’s like baking a cake. If you follow the directions, you get something delicious. We call the practice of these processes Spiritual Exploration.

Of course, there are several ways to list these processes. It’s important to note some of these tools could easily be in more than one category:

  • Logical reasoning is one of the first tools we study. This includes the companion tools, spotting logical fallacies and logical axioms.   Above all, these are essential tools for any spiritual explorer.  They are able to sharpen your ability to discern fact from fiction.
  • Another important basic toolset is the “inner work” methods like The Enneagram Personality Profile.  These help us to understand the mechanisms of Ego, personality, and instincts. They also provide a doorway to understanding the virtues and gifts of the spirit.
  • Progressions of seated meditation are the heart of the practice.  This includes a range from Basic Mindfulness Meditation through Japa Meditation and the Siddhis of Patanjali.
  • Next, progressions of moving meditation. For instance, several methods of energy collection, like Forest Bathing, Qigong, and Tai Chi.
  • Awareness and consciousness expansion pathways such as  Lucid Dreaming and the Shamanic Journey or Guided Meditation.
  • And last but not least, several healing modalities, such as Reiki, and Shiatsu.
