We see the fruits of a translucent life nowhere more vividly than when people grow old. Here, the contrast between a life lived in servitude to the Iago trance, and one that has been transformed through awakening, becomes stark. Just as Iago habits catch up […]. This is an excerpt from my book, Better than Sex.

Amy Domini is not the only woman bringing feminine sanity to corporate America. In living memory, wealth was traditionally passed down through families to the firstborn son.

Dana Lynne Andersen suggests that her students paint on newspaper to get away from the idea of a blank canvas. Sometimes she gives people just eight colors, and two minutes to cover the paper. The Translucent Revolution: How People Just Like You are Waking Up and Changing the World , New World Library , written by Arjuna Ardagh, is a book for this generation, as it not only reveals the process of connecting with divine light or inspiration, but the essential follow-up step of using that light to do works on this planet for the benefit of humankind.
Four years later, he returned to India and met H. Poonjaji, a direct devotee of the great sage Ramana Maharshi, with whom he went through a radical shift of perspective. Since then, Ardagh has been sharing his awakened view with people throughout the United States and Europe.
He developed the Living Essence Training, which prepares people to be facilitators of this shift in consciousness and to cultivate translucence, and he is the founder of the Living Essence Foundation, a non-profit church in Nevada City, Calif. The Foundation offers trainings and weekend workshops and evening events that can really allow people to awaken on their own terms and to feel their own spiritual life as something arising from within, rather than imposed from any sort of dictate from without.
We know that there are some objects that are completely opaque, like a wall or a book. And then there are some objects that are completely transparent, like a sculture of frosted glass — or a piece of stained glass, which allows light to pass through, but diffusely, so it maintains its original shape and its texture and its color. If you shine light on a translucent object, it appears to glow, as though from the inside. And in the same way, a translucent person appears to glow as if from the inside.
A translucent person is someone who has been deeply enough affected by a radical awakening to their nature, who they really are, that their life is no longer completely opaque. Now something beyond the personal can shine through that individual, and they become emitters of light. Instead of just their life being about acquisition and desire and fear and greed, their life becomes a transmission of light.
What is this and how does it relate to translucents? Othello was an all-around, clean-cut good guy. He liked everybody. He trusted everybody. He was one of those guys who wakes up in the morning in a good mood and just wants to make the world a better place. Othello had one problem.
There was a member of his court named Iago who was very insidious, one of those slippery, slimy guys who whispers doubt in your ear. It seems to me that all of us, in our own way, have our own personal lagos.
And we easily become hypnotized by that voice of doubt. If only I could upgrade somehow, then I would be okay. Of course, this is a trap that has no end to it. And this, I would suggest to you, is the dominant trance of the planet. If you combined all those into one person, how would you describe this translucent being who exists outside of this lago state?
I think that is actually a very naive and shortsighted view of what spiritual transformation is really about. Translucence, on the other hand, is a relative term. You can be more or less translucent. You can be very translucent on Monday, not so translucent on Tuesday. And, this makes it a much more subtle term, you see.
Translucence refers to the degree of embodiment of a realization rather than to the realization itself. In one sense, every human being to some degree or other is translucent. So, to come back to your question, if we were to kind of merge all these people together into one person, what would that be like? The most important thing about translucent people is that their life has been deeply transformed by an awakening. That means that the recognition of who they really are, as luminous consciousness, has expansive awareness that has no limits, that is at peace.
That realization has become more important, more dominant, in their life than simply an agenda of acquisition or control. How does that manifest itself? In general, their relationship to life is more one of art, creativity, generosity of spirit. We could go into very specific areas of life and look at how that shows up.
Rhonda Byrne. But he was unable to fix it. It allowed workers to spin more wool at any one time. The electromagnet was the culmination of a series of developments from Hans Christian Oersted, Andre-Marie Ampere, and Dominique Francois Jean Arago made their critical discoveries on electromagnetism. The term is usually limited to lamps with an air gap between consumable carbon electrodes. We live in a permanent state of alert.
How does it affect their sexuality? How does it affect the way they are at work? I get a sense that there are some people who are in the process of exploring spirituality and feel that it looks a certain way. They do these things. Ardagh: I think the myths are keeping us limited to, and tied to, what I would call the hyper-masculine tradition. All the major religions in the world have been founded by men and propagated by men.

There were statistically more women than men on the planet. Why should every major religion have been founded by men and propagated by men? We think that we have spirituality, but what we really have is the masculine interpretation of spirituality, which is a very different thing. Masculine people, by their nature, tend to want to make everything into a journey with a goal, right?
Consequently, masculine people have made spirituality into a journey.
