How to Fix Unworthiness and Claim Your Enlightenment

I know how you can easily get Enlightened. So what stops you having your Enlightenment? One word: unworthiness.

Unworthiness has two aspects, the objective and subjective. Broadly speaking, a spiritual seeker can be objectively and subjectively unworthy of Enlightenment. Even though Enlightenment is your birth right, and freely available, you can still be unworthy.

Objective unworthiness means that the seeker is judged by an external authority, human or otherwise, to be unfit or unready for Enlightenment.

Subjective worthiness is the seeker’s own assessment of their worthiness.

Subjective worthiness can be further divided into subcategories of thought, emotion, conscience and intuition. For example, a person may superficially believe that they are unworthy of Enlightenment but their conscience is in fact clear - and so they can get Enlightened. Someone else may believe that they are worthy of Enlightenment but their intuition tells them that they are not - and this blocks their Enlightenment. One person may have a guilty conscience in general but could still get Enlightened whilst another has a guilty conscience about something crucial that prevents them getting Enlightened.

Objective unworthiness is where I, as the Enlightenment Transmission Teacher, assess that a seeker is not ready, fit or worth for Enlightenment. In other words, I have no confidence that they can get Enlightened in their present condition and so my work is to get them ready or tell them that they are inappropriate.

A seeker who suffers from unworthiness is best fixed by an Enlightened Teacher who will understand their errors and support their corrections. Such corrections will be strenuously resisted by the Ego because it is defensive and over-sensitive by nature. Therefore it is of paramount importance that the seeker trust their spiritual teacher more than their own Ego’s protestations. Unfortunately, very few spiritual teachers can be trusted because they are either ignorant, incompetent or self-serving – so in general a seeker has to be cautious. However if a seeker cannot find and trust an Enlightened Teacher then their path to Enlightenment could be indefinitely delayed.

A seeker can build their Enlightenment-worthiness by following the simplest advice of the Oshana Enlightenment Transmission Teaching: to be open, honest and vulnerable. There should be a personal relationship between the teacher and seeker. The seeker has to trust the teacher and the teacher has to trust the seeker for a full transfer of Enlightenment Transmission to happen. Trust is built when the seeker follows the teacher’s advice and discovers that it is true. Trust is broken when the seeker does not follow that advice, lies or is disrespectful.

The story of Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden and being unable to reconnect to God is a about deception, the breakdown of trust, guilty conscience and feelings of unworthiness and,  especially in their offspring Cain and Abel, misplaced arrogance and pride.

In the final analysis, it is you who stops yourself getting Enlightened (assuming Enlightenment is on offer and not just another inadequate teaching) and so it is you that needs to make some corrections if you want Enlightenment.
