As featured on Aetherius Radio Live.
This month’s episode of Aetherius Radio Live opens with a fascinating new theory about the encounter between Prince Philip’s personal aide, Sir Peter Horsley, and an individual Sir Peter believed to be an alien, in 1954. This contact completely changed Sir Peter’s perspective on science and religion forever, giving him a cosmic, spiritual outlook.
The theme of this month’s show is about the path to enlightenment.
People often think that serving others means you’re not focused on the things that will actually help you to advance spiritually. Not so!
The key to enlightenment is not spending hours practicing meditation, it’s selfless service to others.
The more you do to change the world for the better, the more you will open your chakras so that they become vibrant whirlpools of energy; miniature suns drawing in great inspiration and radiating outwards uplifting spiritual power.
In short, devoted service leads to true meditation, which, according to Master of Yoga Dr. George King is no less than the elevated state of samadhi.

Very interesting podcast. I have to say that the technique used for “mindfulness” has definitely taken a whole other shape in society, but the technique per se is something actually really potent, simple, but very potent. I mean buddhist have used it for the longest time and they have had lots of self-realized Masters. Granted nowadays it’s been spread more as of a stress management mechanism but it’s actually a sacred thing that can lead to enlightenment.
I also think it is interesting to note that there are different types of samadhi and a thing that I recently studied again in Autobiography of a Yogi that I didn’t pay so much attention to the first time, is that only those people who have achieved nirvikalpa samadhi are the ones that can finally move on to the next set of experiences, the other side, other planet or whatever you’d like to call it. In the book that I have on Patanjali’s Sutras from the Vedanta Society they have dharana as concentration, dhayana as meditation and samadhi as absorption in the Atman. Which is the book that you have? 🙂
Thanks for your comments and for sharing your experiences. I have Raja Yoga by Swami Vivekananda which includes the aphorisms of Patanjali with a commentary by Vivekananda. I have also read other versions and, as you say, dhyana is generally considered to be meditation as it often is in Buddhism. How inspiring though that now the best route to samadhi is the path of service!
Indeed! 😀 anyways Richard, awesome content and topic!
