Winter Blues, Existential Unhappiness / Depression, Enlightenment and Awakening

There’s a secret, esoteric, deeply private, metaphysical, magic skill I use in order to transcend the winter blues. I am going to reveal it to you right now. Are you ready?: I book a flight to Costa Rica or the Bahamas and stay there with my family for at least a week. Yes, it took me years to acquire this skill. Awakening to one’s true nature or transcending egoic separation is child’s play compared to this great avataric talent.

Neuroscience is catching up to Spirituality

Last fall I took a Mindfulness and the Brain course at the University of Virginia’s Mindfulness Center. It was a revelation; not in terms of the mind’s potential, or it’s power to change or its’ more esoteric capabilities. Nope. I learned those lessons from some twenty-five years of spiritual seeking and now teaching in the schoolhalls of new-age metaphysics, yoga, guru admiration, advaita vedanta, and zen mindfulness. Got it. What was revealing about this class was hearing about these same concepts sans the flowery-spiritual-new age speak. The clean vernacular in this class was culled straight from the departments of neuroscience, medicine, and biology. I was simply blown away. I had no idea neuroscience was that close, that broad, that courageous, and well, that spiritual. This jaded spiritual teacher was impressed.

It’s a new day Charlie Brown. As a spiritual teacher I cannot tell you how relieved I was to discover this. No more vibey, new age, lingo. It always felt inadequate to me. No more touchy-feely overly dramatic and long-winded explanations.

Cancel your plans and give Mystery a chance

Cancel your plans. Kill your TV. Be bored. Embrace tomorrow with nothing to do. And…give mystery a chance to awaken your heart.

(Pardon my appearance- did this one at 6am, before coffee, when the house was quiet, and not a creature was stirring….)

The Body’s Gratitude- Guided Exercise from Course Webinar

The current BCE Course is about half way through and it’s been an intense amazing ride for everyone.  Each week we gather via webinar to check in, report and share.  Each week we begin the webinar with a guided exercise.  Often, I don’t know where these lead to, what the topic will be, or even what the exercise will be.  I let the moment guide.  In this moment quite a few subjects were touched upon.  The one that struck me the most was the body’s gratitude.  Listen, watch, enjoy- and dive deep into this gratitude.  You won’t regret it.

Spiritual Sense of Humor- Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

 

Laughter is the quickest way

 

I had a great humorous email exchange with a guy named Dan

I had a great email exchange with someone named Dan:

Dan’s emails are in BLUE

My responses are in BLACK

In the fifteenth year of his current incarnation, Dan had a powerful spiritual awakening that opened up not only his third eye, but a third ear and nostril as well, utterly transforming his life into an orificial smorgasbord that thereafter made annual physicals and body cavity searches take twice as long.

While this initial awakening later proved to be acid reflux, it did initiate a spiritual journey that eventually led Dan to India, where he met his beloved master, Sri Gulab Jamun, or as he lovingly called him, “Donut Hole.”  Sri Donut conferred upon Dan his highest blessing, and transmitted Shakti along with several non-communicable diseases.  Thereafter, Dan began seeing spirits, floaters, and the occasional stripper.  “It was as if blinders had fallen from my eyes at last, and everything I saw thenceforth was a student in need of my teachings.”

Awareness- Are you missing this step?

I’m passionate about this subject because I see many seekers who are stuck in the mire of endless advaita / nondual teachings, satsangs, books and videos- all of whom have skipped or avoided this vital step.
