LOCs of Spiritual Teachers

Spiritual teachers may be on different Levels of Consciousness, therefore, it is essential to research their teachings and to see what fruits they bring; for example, there might be a spiritual teacher at the LOC Awareness, the first step of enlightenment, and he or she might be matured and settled in, and the fruits might be bountiful. Another teacher might be in the LOC Full Consciousness who just started to teach and have not matured yet, so therefore one cannot judge a teacher by the level of consciousness alone.


You should take time to get to know the spiritual teacher, become familiar with their teachings, understand the depth of their teachings, and, most importantly, see the fruits of their teachings; for example, how many other people have they helped to awaken? Sometimes, there is a large community, but only a few are awakening to higher levels of consciousness, and sometimes there is a smaller community, and many are awakening.

LOC Precautions

-LOC Full Consciousness realizes oneself as the absolute reality, eternal existence, consciousness, bliss, pure intelligence, ultimate oneness, and alive emptiness. It is a Natural State, and then you will need time to Integrate that, to Experience that in your everyday life, in the usual life conditions, and that will take as much time as you will need.

-At LOC Full Consciousness, there can be ancient souls like Mahavatar Babaji, Jesus, Buddha, and Krishna. There can be sages like Ramana Maharshi, Anandamayi Ma, Sathya Sai Baba, etc. There can be very old souls like Papaji, Nisargadatta Maharaj, etc., and so on, until we come to other old souls who can also be at LOC Full Consciousness and still working on their integration, working through their life experiences or even their conditioning. Hence, LOC Full Consciousness realizes one Self and then follows soul age and mastery, and then follows life integration and life experiences.

-Nowadays, it is becoming more common to open into LOC Full Consciousness while still being at lower nervous system integration.

-Other teachers may measure LOCs from their point of reference; thus, the measurements may differ accordingly.

-The Level of Consciousness DO NOT compare how good one or another teacher is. It DOES NOT compare their teachings.

-We can Not compare only LOC Buddha with Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi etc.

-LOC only indicates Level of Consciousness and NOT what one does with it or achieves in their life or how they contribute to society.

-Nervous System Integration means at what energy level the teacher’s physical nervous system is operating and responding to moment-to-moment experiences.
