SFS 33 Six Ways to Cultivate Enlightenment

In The Nine Freedoms Mars Sector 6 tells us what to do to bring about the state of Enlightenment within us – not just a state of inner peace but the intense realization of oneness.

Mars Sector 6 gives to us not just the steps we need to take, but also the specific qualities that we will need too. This is invaluable advice for our spiritual path.

In this week’s episode: Join us as we conclude our 3-part series exploring six ways you can cultivate Enlightenment in your everyday life, including perhaps the most important key of all!



Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms and what you can do to apply it in your quest to change the world and open the door of enlightenment. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space, and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Great show as always, thank you Richard and Darren. Intelligence is not spoken about very much with regard to spirituality but as you pointed out, Richard, it is vital on this Path with all the decisions we have to make. I thought about this in relation to promoting the Society. This definitely takes intelligence. I love to watch our Master in a TV interview because He is thinking all the time with such intelligence and honesty. Of course one can apply this to every part of life; and every choice we make in this high Path we are either moving towards enlightenment or away from it. However if we stick with the high flow of the Path of The Aetherius Society, and constantly work on mental clarity and doing our best to make intelligent decisions, we will be moving in the right direction. Great examples, Richard, thank you, and a great letter, Darren. Very thought-provoking.

      Many thanks, Chrissie. Giving spiritual teaching and, yes, even promoting the Society, is another great example of applying intelligence on the path to Enlightenment. Thanks for writing!

    On the Law «Thy shall not kill», a question:
    what was The Master´s comment relating to a country practicing real Christianity?

    • Darren Ball on February 20, 2022 at 2:25 am

      Hi Leonor, thanks for writing.
      I believe this is the quote, from a lecture on The Twelve Blessings:
      “I say that if any country had the courage to carry out practical Christianity, that country could stand alone in the world and face all aggression. I’ll go further and say that that country would be protected from all aggression; that such a country would not need to poison the atmosphere of the world by testing foul atomic bombs; that such a country would not need to spend millions of pounds, dollars or rubles, or French francs in order to make a stockpile of poisonous weapons to protect itself from so-called aggression. Such a country would be like a lighthouse; would mark, like a lighthouse does, the dangers.”
      The Master also answered a related question in a recent lecture we heard as part of the Members Audio Series; I think the lecture was called ‘Metaphysical Questions Answered’. Did you hear that one?

    I listened to the show yesterday n made no comment, but deep in my heart, I did a prayer, and in the night by 3:30am, I dreamt of Doctor George King. He came and sat by my left side and lead my group of 20 in prayer; were fantastic prayers. What is that mean? he chant some Eastern mantra so beautifully.

      Gosh, Sonia. Thanks for sharing that experience! Very moving. What it means, I don’t know exactly, but I think no doubt you are building on this magnificent relationship which we can all have with Dr. King, even if we have never met him physically in person, when we follow him and his teachings. Blessings, Darren
