How can you call it enlightenment if it seems more like dragging you down?

if it seems that way then a person isn't ready to seek enlightenment.

they should just do whatever seems right to them and see how that works out for them.

Christian meditation is studying the Scriptures and keeping mindful of God and things that are of God as Philippians 4:8 tells us. This is the only meditation that brings us spiritual growth.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Eastern Meditation is very dangerous. I have studied advanced teachings on yoga, meditation and self-realization also called God-realization, and was practicing yoga until God revealed the truth to me.

The problem with Eastern Meditation is that it is based on doctrines of demons and its practice leads to demonic oppression. Persons who practice Eastern Meditation claim they feel peace but it's a false peace, a state of mental sedation. Prolonged practice of this form of meditation can induce states of bliss similar to those produced by the consumption of entheogens. However, these feelings of euphoria have nothing to do with God/Self-Realization or unity with God as many Hindus and new-agers believe. Only the Blood of Christ can unite us to God, cleanse us from sin and allow us entry into Heaven.

There is only one way to God and that is by accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour. Jesus was not a yogi. He was the Son of God and He was not created like us humans. In John 14:6, Jesus says: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Yoga is not what it seems. It is Satan's counterfeit salvation. Making Jesus the Lord of your life is the only way to salvation and to God. The demon Shiva (The Destroyer) gave the teachings of yoga to humans in an effort to prevent as many as he can from receiving true salvation found only in Christ Jesus. Yoga is very dangerous and will lead to demonic possession.

We all have spiritual centres called chakras and Satan has taught humans how to directly manipulate these energy centers and this practice is very harmful to us. The practice of yoga does not unite a person with God. All forms of yoga (even hatha yoga) seek to cause the (serpent) energy of the base chakra to rise to the crown chakra and this is said to result in “God-consciousness”, but it does not. It is extremely dangerous. Have you ever heard of kundalini syndrome? One day visit the deliverance ministry of a Full-Gospel church and ask the ministers how many people they have delivered from destructive demons who entered them through the door of yoga.

Even the practice of hatha yoga which seems like beneficial physical exercise to many is meant to cause the kundalini to rise to the crown chakra - and this is extremely dangerous.

Shiva, one of the highest ranking demons (if not Satan himself) is known as The Destroyer as well as The Supreme Lord of Yoga. Shiva taught yoga to human beings because he wants to destroy us. Do you doubt that Shiva is a demon? The Satanic Bible lists Shiva as one of the major demons, and witches and sorcerers summon him.

Yogis seem peaceful but they are in fact under great demonic oppression. The powers (siddhis) they develop are not their own powers but the powers of demons. Yoga is not going to save you from eternal destruction - in fact, it leads you there. Yoga is not going to cleanse you of sin, only the blood of Christ can do that. Accept the sacrifice Jesus made for your sins and you will receive the Holy Spirit of God who will put a resentment towards all sin within you. The Holy Spirit of God will teach you and empower you with the powers of God and not of demons.

Jesus operated by the power of Jehovah God's Holy Spirit. The gurus of the east operate by the powers of unclean spirits (demons). Jesus was not created by God - He is the second person of the Holy Trinity and always existed with God. The so-called "masters" of the east are human beings created by God.

Satanists, many occultists and people throughout the world believe that Satan is the giver of knowledge and enlightenment. That's what the devil wants all human beings to believe. He began teaching this in the Garden of Eden when he told Eve that if they ate the apple their eyes would be opened and they would be as gods. Of course this was a lie and because they believed it, they did what Satan wanted them to do which was sin and they fell because of it. Satan is still selling his "Ye Can Become like God" package in different forms throughout the world. The knowledge that Satan offers brings nothing but torment, death and destruction. The devil is the father of lies, a thief and The Destroyer according to the Bible (John 10:10). The word of God says Satan is like a roaring lion seeking who he can devour (1 Peter 5:8) so we must be so cautious and stay completely away from his territory as he hates us and works day and night with his minions jumping at every opportunity to cause us trouble. It's the wisdom of God that we must seek. God says all we need to do is ask Him for wisdom and He will grant us wisdom freely. The wisdom of God sets us free indeed.

God's Plan of Salvation for Us

We cannot be united to God or enter Heaven without accepting the blood of Jesus Christ as the payment for our sins. Praise God for His great sacrifice!

God created us out of love (Jeremiah 31:3) and He doesn't want us to be separated from Him because of our sins. He loves us so much that He sacrificed His own Son Jesus Christ to pay for our sins so we could have a relationship with Him and spend eternity with Him in His kingdom (John 3:16).

Jesus came to pay for our sins with His blood (Matthew 26:28) because without the shedding of blood there would be no forgiveness of sins (Hebrews 9:22), and no other blood besides the blood of the Son of God was sufficient to pay for our sins. We are all sinners and we cannot be redeemed and saved unless we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and His shed blood as payment for our sins.

After a believer dies, they go to paradise to be with Christ (Luke 23:43). If a person dies without accepting Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they would not be forgiven by God. After death, the demons claim them and drag them to a terrible place called Hades (Acts 2:31, Luke 10:15). All those in Hades will be later thrown into the eternal lake of fire along with Satan, his hosts and all who refuse the true and only way of salvation offered in the Lord Jesus Christ. Burning in the everlasting lake of fire is known as the “second death” (Revelation 20:6, 13-15).

God sent His only Son Jesus Christ, Who is very precious to Him, to come in flesh on the earth and become a sacrifice on a cross to save us from this. It shows the extent of love God has for us, and He wants us to choose Him and find Him through His Son Jesus Who is the only way to God, the truth and the life (John 14:6).

The truth about Jesus Christ can be found only in the word of God which is the Holy Bible. Verse 16 of chapter 3 of the first book of Timothy speaks about Jesus:

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16)

Verse 9-11 of chapter 2 of the book of Philippians tells us that Jesus Christ is Lord over all:

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippins 2:9-11)

False doctrines claim that there are several paths to God. Scripture/the word of God tells us that there is only one way and that is through Jesus Christ. Verse 6 of Chapter 14 of the book of John says:

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Verse 36 of chapter 3 of the book of John reveals:

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:36).

If you sincerely say this prayer, your sins will be washed away, you will be saved from eternal torment and inherit the Kingdom of God:

"Dear Jesus,

I am a sinner.

I repent of my sins.

Please forgive me and save me by your shed blood;

come into my heart.

I want to receive you as my own personal Lord and Savior.

Amen"

After sincerely saying this prayer, the Holy Spirit will abide within you and begin to lead you to all truth, empower and equip you and help you along life's journey. Keep your faith growing by reading and studying the word, remain in a repentant and humble spirit and always have Almighty God as first priority in your life.

Buddhism can seem a defeatist in some of its teaching but it was designed for a certain group of people as was the Bible , we are all enlightened to some degree some have this naturally a natural balance , look at Buddha on one end and Hitler on the other , to reach enlightenment and I came close for a few months is to know no greater happiness and you don't feel dragged down the opposite to feel a part of the universe one with everything the physical is no longer a problem you think clearer no negative thought at all , I could not maintain this level but even when it backs off you are never the same again its better to be a little enlightened and at least know what Buddha and Jesus were talking about.

More info Marc Lambert and God

Reaching the unsurpassed enlightenment of the Buddha is to completely understand everything... What people don't realize is that even enlightened beings feel pain, anger, etc. but because they know the reality of all things they don't react the same way the rest of us do. Following the path can lead to joy, but there are times when the going will be very tough. Just keep working on it.

no enlightenment is power i.e understanding

thank you Lord for wisdom
