Here I am.
Lisa Natoli is a spiritual teacher of A Course in Miracles as well as Advaita-Vedanta (non-duality) specifically The Direct Method teachings of Jean Klein and Atmananda Krishna Menon. She has a deep love for Jesus, who she began studying about in her early 30s. She spent three decades studying, practicing and going deeply into subjects about healing, consciousness, Self-realization, metaphysics, awakening, the power of God, the power of love and transformation. In October 2018, there was a realization of the unchanging "I" that is our true nature which came about through the practice of welcoming and inquiry.
Hi, I'm Lisa.
I spent over 30 years (since 1986) reading spiritual books, trying to wake up, trying to get to consistent peace and happiness. I knew there was some kind of "state" (or whatever different names people called it: power, energy, light, God, the kingdom within) that was available to everyone because I had read hundreds of books from ordinary people who learned ancient wisdom and who had awakened to their true nature. So I knew it was absolutely possible and available. But not a single thing I was doing was leading me any closer to my goal of knowing the Self and and knowing first-hand as my own direct experience what these ancient masters were speaking about.
In October 2018, the unchanging Self was recognized as myself, and it was realized that this all-encompassing nature (which is happiness, peace, light) is our true universal shared Identity and envelops all things completely: all thoughts, all events, all bodies, the world, all feelings, the universe, all sensations, all situations. This Self is unchanging, eternal & luminous and is beyond the body and beyond the mind, yet encompassing both the body and mind completely as Itself.
This Self - what some call God and some call consciousness - is all there is. And this realization is available to everyone.
