A little bit of Bio

Hi Joyce,

I joined this list yesterday upon hearing that Harsha had asked the members speaking about their experiences with me. I make Enlightenment available in dialogue meetings, over the phone, on the Net -- wherever.

I sought for 30 years, and was practising yoga by my accord at the age of 5, around that age my cousin decided to be vegetarian! After following seriously following several teachers only to see their organisations explode, and disappear, and seeing many visiting teachers, I concluded that enlightenment did not exist.

When I did Awaken - at 5am in the morning, I actually said "I think I am enlightened" and my partner, a long time student of the late Jean Klein, said "I thought you were going to say something like that."

It's all a bit of a mystery and its on-going. Others have woken up around me, and there are plenty of stories about people's strange-but-true experiences. For me, it's not surprising anymore because reality is not fixed. It's just a bit of mystery, i.e. why this is all happening.

I don't fit any orthodox categories, but I'd say I am in the Ramana Maharshi line, as long as we recognise that it doesn't exist!

Orthodoxy, and advaitic divisions, have been created by the unenlightened. Teachers don't fit into categories. For example, some will say "You can't say 'I am enlightened' because that means that there is someone there to be enlightened". But you can say it. Here, look -- I am enlightened!

And look, I still am!!

Lots of love,

Oshana


Sorry, Oshana, I have no idea who you are. I'm always happy to hear about people's experiences. And if your life will make Awakening available to me I shall be delighted. Even if you cannot make this available to me I'm still happy to meet you.

Joyce
