Last post we looked at the stages of enlightenment and how temptation plays a part in the process. It’s a fascinating discussion. So how do we speed up the process?
You must conquer the two biggest delusions…
First, that temptations come from the external, your surroundings.
And second, that you are tempted because of your goodness.
Temptations will hold you in bondage until you realize that these two beliefs are erroneous. When you let them die and replace them with true understanding, then temptation falls away rapidly and you move into the higher stages of enlightenment.
Let me know what you think about this, and I’ll pick up there tomorrow.
