Enlightenment Made Easy
By Diana Gold Holland



Near Montreal, Canada, June 28, 4:39 pm: A 6-day Soul Healing and Enlightenment Retreat has just ended, led by Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha. I am sitting here blissed out. That’s right: blissed out.

So this is how it feels to be enlightened… fully grounded and joyfully expanded all at the same time, deeply nourished in soul, mind and body, so aware of the current and quality of life all around. Everything so subtle and so full. Inner joy.

They called this retreat “more than an invitation... a sacred calling.” Now I know why. It was not a love fest, and yet 452 people bonded as one.

Not religion but pure spirituality, climbing higher and higher each day, or rather more and more inward to experience the sacred and heavenly universe that exists there. So alive. So joyous.

There were no enlightenment instructions or “to-do” lists, and yet every hour, every two minutes, a new revelation: based on 5,000-year-old Taoist and Buddhist secret wisdom and yet completely in the moment as each session unfolded.

Master Sha brought us into what the ancients called the “hero condition,” the state of pure being, of formless, timeless, unconditional love. His method? In his own words: “Heart touch heart. Soul touch soul.”

Learning about seven bodily houses of the soul (such a rich and illuminated take on the chakras), Soul Singing, Soul Dancing, chanting the Soul Song of Yin Yang and Five Elements released at this retreat … on so many levels it was a privilege to be here to experience it all. There were many moments when you could hear a pin drop.

Enlightenment is supposed to be hard work: you sit in meditation on a mountaintop or in a cave for 50 years. You spend half an hour eating one grape or staring at a candle hoping the skies will part. In times gone by, you sat at the feet of a master who hoarded his wisdom by decree, imparting his secrets to maybe two or three life-long disciples on his deathbed… No more!

It is now possible for millions of people to attain soul enlightenment in this lifetime: Mother Earth is in crisis and a new way has opened up via Master Sha, soul leader, exceptional healer and chosen divine servant. At a Soul Healing and Enlightenment retreat, you:

• learn ancient Taoist and Buddhist practices to build your energy centers and boost your energy, vitality, stamina and immunity
• receive direct divine blessings, including major permanent divine soul treasures for every aspect of purification — soul, heart, mind and body
• open (or further open) your spiritual communication channels to receive guidance from your own soul and from the entire Soul World including the Divine
• learn to do soul healing for yourself and others
• gain a clear and deep understanding of the spiritual journey
• reach soul enlightenment by Divine Order of Master Sha

Master Sha’s given mission is to transform the consciousness of humanity and souls in the universe to create a peaceful and harmonized world and universe. He has been given the power and the authority to uplift the soul standing of those who are ready, and has enlightened thousands of souls.

He has also created the World Soul Healing, Peace and Enlightenment Movement, which is open to all. People everywhere are invited to gather once a week on a teleconference to chant for world peace. The chanting not only changes the health and energy field in a person’s body, says Master Sha, but is an act of service that ripples out to encompass the universe.

Master Sha’s own advanced gifts are the outcome of a life of unconditional service. In 2006, he received the Martin Luther King Jr. Hall of Fame Award for his humanitarian efforts. He is the subject of a 2008 documentary Soul Masters that shows two great masters, Dr. Sha and his teacher, Dr. Guo, not hidden in the remote, snowy reaches of the Himalayas, but sharing day-to-day their lives and their remarkable approach to healing.

The thousands of near-miraculous results they achieve — heart to heart, soul to soul, and especially with chronic and life-threatening conditions — speak for themselves in China and around the world. The film starts when Dr. Sha heals an American filmmaker’s gravely ill father — standing by his bedside but not actually moving a muscle. She then follows Dr. Sha to meet his teacher in China, Dr. Guo, and captures footage of the breakthrough techniques being practiced in his health clinic. But the real revelation is that these two advanced healers are using the power of the soul to heal. What is more, they are empowering others to do the same. Everything has a soul, they teach, and SOUL CAN HEAL.

Dr. Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles, who will be hosting Master Sha at a series of events in October, calls watching Soul Masters a healing experience in itself. (www.soulmastersmovie.com)

“If you want to know whether a pear is sweet, taste it,” says Master Sha. “The enlightenment journey has taken hundreds, even thousands of lifetimes for most souls. At this time, only 15% of humanity are enlightened souls. In this special time, the Divine needs more enlightened beings to serve humanity, Mother Earth and all souls.

Therefore, the Divine is bringing a new way, a greatly accelerated way to bring souls of humanity who are ready to soul enlightenment. Do not miss this opportunity to rapidly advance your soul standing. Become empowered to serve the world in a whole new way.”

“I have the power to heal myself. You have the power to heal yourself. Together, we have the power to heal the world.”

A spectacular Soul Healing and Enlightenment event has been planned for Oct. 23-25 in Atlanta, hosted by Rev. Dr. Barbara L. King, founding director and presiding minister at Hillside International Truth Center. Details available at www.drsha.com. In particular, be sure to read the section Learn more about Soul Enlightenment and to watch Master Sha’s personal invitation to you to attend the retreat in person or by live web-cast.

Events with Master Sha have been scheduled at Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles as follows: Friday, Oct. 10: Soul Masters Screening; Saturday, October 11: Soul Healing Workshop, Group Healing Sessions; Sunday, October 12: Master Sha will be a special guest at Sunday Services, with a Soul Wisdom book signing to follow. Details available at www.drsha.com

For those unable to attend the retreat, Master Sha’s latest book, Soul Wisdom: Practical Treasures to Transform Your Life (Atria, NYC: July 2008) provides very simple, practical techniques and one guiding message that is consistent with his enlightenment retreats and all of his other endeavors: it all begins with the soul. “In life,” he writes, “the soul is boss. Heal the soul first, transform the soul first, and then the mind and body will follow.” The book is a #1 New York Times best-seller.
