Stinky Spiritual Awakening Happiness Parable – Part 1

Hey everybody- something different. This is spiritual parable from my book 21 Days. I think the principles of supreme-advaita-non-dual-awakening-realization can be best explained by farting monkeys, unhappy elephants, and over-intellectual butterflies.

This story has made people laugh, cry, and think long – about finding real happiness. It would be an awesome animated cartoon: Please tell your uncle who works at PIXAR about it. Please tell your DIRECTOR friend Steven Spielburg about it. Please tell your ACTOR cousin Jude Law or Jack Black about it. Please tell the SCREENWRITER who lives down the block about it. Please tell that children’s book PUBLISHER who takes his kids to the same school as you do about it. Okay well, at the very least, post this blog on your FACEBOOK page.

PART 1. Enjoy…

One day, Elephant woke up terribly unhappy. This was very strange for Elephant because he was usually a jolly soul; not today, however. Today, he was unhappy, and he couldn’t figure out why. He’d had plenty to eat recently. He wasn’t sick. No one was angry with him. No one he knew had made him sad. Even Hyena, who sometimes irritated him, hadn’t upset him. All he knew was that his heart was heavy and something, from his head to his toes, just didn’t feel right. He decided to ask for help from his friends Monkey and Butterfly.

The sun rose to its zenith, high in the clear mountain air. It shone down upon the three travelers as they plodded along the dry rock- and dirt-strewn path. Elephant swung his big trunk back and forth, assisting the momentum of his large torso and legs as he walked. Monkey and Butterfly were sleepy eyed as they jostled upon Elephant’s big back. It was almost high noon.

PART 3. Enjoy…

Time passed. The afternoon sun began its descent into the western horizon. Big Mountain shifted its gears and prepared for the evening liturgy. A gaggle of clouds rolled in and shrouded its peak. Wind whipped down its slopes. The temperature slowly dropped, and the leaves of the great fruit tree rustled with the change. Elephant awoke to a very strange sensation on his trunk. It was cold. It was wet. He opened his eyes. On his trunk had landed a single snowflake. Somewhere near the peak of Big Mountain, a snowstorm had begun.

WHY BOTHER? WHAT are the benefits of Enlightenment or Spiritual Awakening?

There is often a lack of direct, clear-eyed communication about the benefits of awakening. You hear all sorts of things about the how, when, where and who, but not much about the what. If you aren’t asking, well-  you damn well should be.

What am I buying here? I mean, come on man, this is a big investment. Can you please describe the product a little further? Not the how– I’ve got plenty of how- meditation, satsang, weekend workshops, webinars, books, therapy- Not the who– There must be 53,423 enlightened-awakened characters with books and websites peddling their wares. And not the when/where– I know- be here now…. 

Can you please describe the what.  What are the BENEFITS of Enlightenment/Awakening?

Spiritual Awakening and the 2012 Holidays. Are you Ready?

There is an opportunity available for you right around the corner. There is a gift in the air. There is an immensity brewing. There is an intensity set to trigger, ripe to pluck – waiting, waiting- for you dear reader to grasp, to absorb, and to make your own. Are you ready? Are you ready for the holidays- of 2012?

What I mean by ready of course is not the usual litany of material, commercial, stressed-out, calendar-based obligations. The ready I am talking about is accessed deep in the heart, at the core of your being, in the fundamentals of your humanity. This is the BIG ready, the one that has always been there, that has always beckoned you to return home, that has always hoped that you would one day take notice and respond. This is the BIG ready of your hearts true longing- to fulfill itself, to find itself, to BE here-now in this world. Are you ready for this?

Awakening Ingredients and the SECRET to destroying the Death Star

So here we are. The final stretch. The final days of the twenty six thousand year long equinox precession. The end of the great Mayan calendar. The beginning of the new age. The Aquarian age. Is your vibration high enough? Has the great white brotherhood initiated you? Is your light body in tune with the super-divine energy of the universe? Are you pure enough? Enlightened enough? Perfect enough? Are you finally ready for Transcendence now that December 21st 2012 is here? Are the stars finally aligned for you?

Take a deep breath. Be honest now. Come on, really honest. Let silence settle upon your body. Let softness enter your mind. Relax. Let your guard down. It’s okay. It’s okay to admit- your answer to all of these questions is probably…no.

Violin Master- a spiritual enlightenment and awakening allegory

Violin Master

If I were a serious student of the violin and had thousands of dollars at my disposal and could have any teacher in the world, I would seek out the most well-known violin master I could find and beg him to teach me.

If he said yes, and before I actually shelled out the big bucks, I would ask him: “Sir, are you or are you not a great violin master? For I pray that one day I too will be a great violin master. I would like to be assured that I am learning from the best. Is this not the case?”

Naturally I would hope for a quick response. I would only need to hear him say it once. Just once. Then, I would know.

“Yes, my child, I am the greatest violin master who has ever existed.”

Water- A spiritual awakening allegory

You are water.

Frozen. Cold. Solid. Hard.

All of the other water you have ever known, your whole life, has also been frozen, cold, solid, and hard.

One day, by chance, you are told about a type of water known to be fluid, shapeless, soft, and warm. You can hardly believe it. You scoff.

Years go by.

Then, by some strange twist of fate or grace, you run into some of this water.

Fluid, shapeless, soft, and warm.

You barely recognize it … as water that is… but somehow, you know … it is.
