Honesty, openness and vulnerability
Feel in the dark without using your mind.
[Oshana] Dear N....,
[N....] Will you teach me?
[N....] I have sought enlightenment for about a decade and while I have experienced bliss on two very distinct occasions, each lasting for several hours, I have yet to achieve any permanence nor an understanding how to get IT. Both experiences were spontaneous and beyond words. The best way I am able to describe the experience is a state of profound bliss and a deep and absolute knowing that all is perfect and as it should be.
[Oshana] That sounds as it should be.
[N....] I have a deep desire to achieve this state of being and right now my experience is very much the contrary. And I am not enjoying the contrast. :)
[Oshana] That sounds good too.
[N....] Very recently, I realized that I need a teacher and while I have spiritual mentors I have never been taught by anyone enlightened. Tonight when I stumbled across your email group, I had a sense that you were that teacher.
[Oshana] Time will tell.
[N....] As I read through the last 50 or so posts, I experienced a very strong urge to invite you to come to Canada, where I live. I had absolutely no idea if this was even a remote possibility but the urge was there and then my ego voice began to tell me I was crazy. And then the next post I read listed all the places in England where you hold meetings and then said "and wherever he is invited." I laughed out loud took it as a sign to go ahead and invite you. :)
[Oshana] No doubt about it.
[N....] So, would you like to come to Canada? I would love to play host and arrange meetings/presentations here on your behalf. Could be fun!
[Oshana] Yes, but probably not this year. There are things that need to be taken care of here before I can travel for any length of time. I have been invited to meet John de Ruiter in Edmonton. That would be fun. I am curious to see the set up there.
[N....] I have a sense that I need help energetically. And I clearly heard you say that most seekers are in a confused state and need the guidance of one who is awakened to awaken themselves.
[N....] I believe our paths have crossed because it truly is time for me to awaken. It is my deepest desire.
[Oshana] *Sigh!* I hope so.
[N....] Please let me know all you would require of me to be my teacher. I understand you do dialogue by phone and on the internet. And I am certainly open to the idea of a trip to England. Hmmmm. Sounds lovely.
[Oshana] You are welcome to come to England anytime. You might have fun in Glastonbury. I do. I expect to be there next in about mid-June.
We can speak on the phone. First, focus on what you want to know, and then email me about it.
Our first chat may be long or short. You require honesty, openness and vulnerability. You have to feel in the dark without using your mind. These are all qualities that you must have to face yourself.
With gratitude and love,
