The earthly plane is fraught with glamour and illusion by those "selling" the next new way to enlightenment. Many of those in search of truth have become ensnared in the labyrinth of false teachings or teachings containing a small parcial of truth only to find after a short period of time the sparkle has diminished and their search continues. The most favorable approach, for all those embarking upon the "Lighted Way", is spending time connecting with their Soul and not spending money on the next great teaching.
The existing doctrines that teach how to become Soul-infused is all one needs, your Soul requires no fee to enlighten the personality and will provide a greater expanse of knowledge and divine truth. Once you have connected, even in small measure, with the Soul, align yourself with a group of like minded Souls and take the "Bullet Train" to enlightenment through group service to humanity.
Buddha speaking to his principle disciple, Ananda
“Therefore, O Ananda, be ye lamps unto yourselves. Rely on yourselves, and do not rely on external help. Hold fast to the truth as a lamp. Seek salvation alone in the truth. Look not for assistance to any one besides yourselves.
“And how, Ananda, can a brother be a lamp unto himself, rely on himself only and not on any external help, holding fast to the truth as his lamp and seeking salvation in the truth alone, looking not for assistance to any one besides himself? Herein, O Ananda, let a brother, as he dwells in the body, so regard the body that he, being strenuous, thoughtful, and mindful, may, whilst in the world, overcome the grief which arises from the body’s cravings. While subject to sensations let him continue so to regard the sensations that he, being strenuous, thoughtful, and mindful, may, whilst in the world, overcome the grief which arises from the sensations. And so, also, when he thinks or reasons, or feels, let him so regard his thoughts that being strenuous, thoughtful, and mindful he may, whilst in the world, overcome the grief which arises from the craving due to ideas, or to reasoning, or to feeling.
“Those who, either now or after I am dead, shall be lamps unto themselves, relying upon themselves only and not relying upon any external help, but holding fast to the truth as their lamp, and seeking their salvation in the truth alone, and shall not look for assistance to any one besides themselves, it is they, Ananda, among my bhikkhus, who shall reach the very topmost height! But they must be anxious to learn.”
