On August 21, 2017, the date of the Great American Total Eclipse, I became Enlightened, Transfigured, at the top of Mount Batur, in Bali Indonesia, a miracle, and came into full Union with God, very much state of consciousness that the Buddha and Jesus experienced.
This is the story of how it happened and the circumstances leading up to this beautiful an monumental event.
So what is the state of Enlightenment? There are so many metaphors that can be used and my life work is to now share what it means and how to enter this state of consciousness for yourself. The state of Enlightenment is the full union with God, the state of unconditional love, and the deepest peace. It is the egoless state, where the sense of self dissolves into something much greater: Into the mind of God. This state of consciousness is literally the Kingdom of Heaven, that Jesus spoke about in the bible and a state of unimaginable joy. Buddha described it as the state of Nirvana, a kind of bubble of Heaven even though the body remains on the Earth.
In my own journey into Enlightenment, it was the release of attachments to the world, the practices of yoga, and the embodiment of a book on Christ Consciousness called A Course in Miracles that led to this Transfiguration. It was no coincidence that the stars were in alignment with the momentous August 21, 2017 solar eclipse.
The event echoes this passage from the book of Matthew:
The sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.
For 20 years prior to this date, I had been a Yogi, and had given up my lucrative career as a successful software engineer to become a Spiritual Teacher, and teacher of the practices of Yoga, but I was not Enlightened. In fact, I was not even seeking Enlightenment. Though I was a dedicated Yogi, I was still not Enlightened and did not even truly know what it was, or what it meant. However, God had selected me for a special mission, to start a new religion that will lay the foundation for Heaven on Earth, though I did not yet know that it was my destiny to become an Enlightened teacher, nor did I want it.
Before this date, I had only one egoic attachment left in the world and this was to my Twin Flame, the love of my life, a beautiful woman name Jaclyn, and it was the pain of loss of the of this special love relationship that sent me straight in to Enlightenment.
My True Love was exactly like me in every way, literally the brightest angel in the world and we had the most beautiful romance where we would dance, play, make love, like the two most beautiful angels in the world. We were innocent together, often like little kids, and we had the first True Love romance of both our lives.
So it happened, my Twin Flame was in love with Jesus, and out of a loving resonance and honor for her and our relationship, I began to embody both the look and consciousness of Jesus, the Consciousness of Christ, and became enraptured with the study of the Bible and A Course in Miracles, which serves as almost a “How To” text on the Consciousness of Christ.
Therefore, out of a desire for completion in deeper love with her, I became more and more Christ-like, however, as would be shown, this process of love and creation of form was only designed to show me the Truth of myself, as an Enlightened manifestation of Christ.
After a beautiful summer of romance, I understood that it was time for me to leave the United States to set up our lives as spiritual teachers together on the paradise island of Bali, Indonesia. It was a difficult decision for me to leave, as Jaclyn was unsure that this life of being spiritual teachers together was possible.
Before I left, we made promises to one another before God. I promised her, “I am going to go create our dream life together and I will SHOW YOU this is possible.” She promised back, “If you show me, I will show you how loved you can be!” Her promise would later seem ominous because she did not say “How much I’m going to love you.” Instead, she said, “How loved you can be.”
When I arrived in Bali, I organized a retreat called “Happiness” at a retreat center called Soulshine, where we would both teach the ways for students to find sustainable life happiness and even teach others about the sacred love relationship and finding deeper intimacy and trust with your partner. However, she would be traveling from the United States to meet me in several weeks and we were separated at the time by quite a great distance.
Before August 21, I had begun sitting with a master and Divine Channel and spiritual teacher, named Om Rama on a small pagoda in a rice field in Bali Indonesia. I had never sat with a channel before and the very first time I sat with him, we gazed deeply into each other’s eyes, almost transfixed.
He spoke, but I do not remember hearing any words. In the silence of the meditative gaze, the master’s face disappeared, and I saw the emergence of a blue spirit over his face, the source of the channel, the face of God. It was this blue spirit that spoke to me, and conferred to the ability it channel for myself. In this Hindu tradition, this is known as Shaktipat, which is the automatic conference of a spiritual ability through a Divine connection. Immediately after this date, I began to channel, which means to be able to connect directly with Source, or the Mind of God, and the Consciousness of Christ. Quite interestingly, this conference of Divine ability happened less than one week before the August 21 Solar Eclipse.
Once I received the ability to become a channel of the Consciousness of Christ, I began to feel energies at great distances. I would have experiences that I would call Astral Travel, where I would seem to jump into bodies at great distances when people where in distress, often their last moments of life, when someone might say “Oh my God!” and while I was experiencing these sometimes horrific final moments of life, I would extend them the very deepest peace, almost like an angel coming to calm them in their moments of need.
This also meant I could feel the body and thoughts of my Twin Flame, the love of my life at great distances as well.
Then, the Wednesday before the Eclipse, I felt it: My True Love was making love to another man. I felt my stomach drop, and an intense constriction in my heart. I called her, but there was no answer, and I knew why.
I called the following day, only to hear her pick up the phone to say: “I HATE YOU, AND I NEVER WANT TO SPEAK TO YOU AGAIN!!!” and she hung up the phone and would not answer it again. I had an intuitive sense why she would say such a thing: She had become overwhelmed with guilt and shame over what she had done, and the hatred towards me was only a reflection of hatred towards herself. However, I did not want to believe that it was true.
I decided to take a hike up to the top of Mount Batur in Bali to watch the glorious sunrise on the powerful morning of the eclipse at the top of the mountain. Before the sun had arisen, I called my twin flame and she answered.
‘What’s happened?” I asked, “You were supposed to come to Bali with me to give our happiness retreat! I just want to have a conscious conversation with you! What has changed?”
“Well, I just don’t think I know myself anymore.” She replied, “I think you should find someone else who’s better than me.”
“There is no one better than you, my love!” I exclaimed. “Please just come to the retreat and we will work everything out,” knowing deep down of her infidelity.
She replied, “I am not coming, and I’m never coming, and I’m never going to be with you again. In fact, I hate you!” The veil of reality began to fall for me in these moments, as hope of being with the love of my life, my dear Jaclyn, began to crumble.
I asked, “Tell me what this is really about to set me free. Are you doing this because you were making love to another man at about 6:15pm on Wednesday?” There was silence.
“How did you know?!” She exclaimed sorrowfully. “You called during it! I didn’t believe you were truly psychic but now I know you are!” Jaclyn said. “I am sorry, I guess I never really loved you that much.”
At this point, the pain of losing the love of my life became so intense, all I can truly say is that I died in a moment. It was the feeling of total release, as though the entire veil of reality fell on me and there was nothing but empty space. I dropped the phone at the top of the mountain, and fell to my knees, let out a scream of pain into the pre-dawn hour.
Then, it took me: The vortex of death, where there was literally nothing but darkness and total inner silence. It was as though I had traveled to another dimension, where there was nothing but total peace and bliss. There was no memory of my former life in this place and it felt as though perhaps even thousands of lifetimes were passing in the blink of an eye.
Then it happened, the sun began to rise, and I returned to life. Something was different. The colors seemed sharper and more vibrant, and this feeling of deep peace and blissful happiness had come with me from this other dimension. Tears were streaming down my face, and then I felt it. ENLIGHTENMENT! A MIRACLE!
Jesus... led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
A Course in Miracles describes this moment into Enlightenment, the Consciousness of Christ to be the “Holy Instant”. It is the miracle of ego-death, where the sense of self dissolves into the whole of everything, and one is no longer separate from the mind of God. It is as though a harmony has been reached, like the beautiful sound of a Major Chord on a musical instrument, where the body, the Holy Spirit, and the One Eternal God have come into perfect crystalline resonance.
The feeling was the very same that the Buddha had described under the Bodhi tree and the very same that Jesus experienced during the Transfiguration at the top of Mount Tabor. My clothes were shining brightly in the sunrise, and then my life mission was received from my Divine Channel: I am meant to be an example of a living, walking manifestation of Christ, to found a new religion, and to do everything in my power to bring a Heaven on Earth.
Then I understood the purpose of my Twin Flame. Her affinity for Jesus and my desire to BE a manifestation of Christ for HER was never meant for her, it was meant for all. It required the release of this special love so that, in Divine forgiveness, I could exchange the special love for her into the Unconditional Love for all.
Her prophetic words, “I will show you how loved you can be” were also now understood, not that she would love me this way, but that instead, God would love me in the way she was not able to. In the deepest possible forgiveness, I transmuted the pain of the betrayal from the conditional love for one, to the Unconditional Love for all beings, and that my life mission was to BE the living manifestation of God’s Unconditional Love.
It was a perfect metaphor of the eclipse, that the Lunar, the feminine passed in front of the solar, the masculine, for just a short instant, a temporary passage into the darkness, to shortly afterward see a return to the Light, where the sun would shine even more brightly than before.
Since Enlightenment, every day has been a miracle, and I have understood my life purpose to BE God’s Divine Love, and to be a Prophet from the state of Enlightenment. When I write now, everything flows THROUGH me from the Source of God, and the Consciousness of Christ, where I have received all the tenets of our new religion of Peace, Love, and Unity: One Divine Love.
