One, Spirit exists. Two, Spirit is found within. Three, most of us don't realize this Spirit within, however, because we are living in a world of sin, separation, and duality -- that is, we are living in a fallen or illusory state. Four, there is a way out of this fallen state of sin and illusion, there is a Path to our liberation. Five, if we follow this Path to its conclusion, the result is a Rebirth or Enlightenment, a direct experience of Spirit within, a Supreme Liberation, which -- six -- marks the end of sin and suffering, and which --seven--issues in social action of mercy and compassion on behalf of all sentient beings. -- (Quotation from Ken Wilber)
During my undergraduate studies, I became aware of the teachings and practices for inner self realization and actualization. I continued my education and completed a Ph.D. in Sociology. I also continued to contemplate the core insights and practices of spiritual teachers and mystics, and to study the new developments in science and healing.
