*I* never sat in John de Ruiter's lap!
Dear Bro. Shelly,
[Shelly] DEAR BROTHER OSHANA: In whatever dialogues we have, I would like it understood that it is all-So To Speak- and not to be taken too seriously. This will prevent my forked tongue from becoming tied.
[Oshana] For Loquaciousness try loquats. Very good Chinese cough remedy. I know someone who develops a chronic cough when ever he is asked what he thinks are personal questions.
[Shelly] You asked> Did you find me on Jerry's site?
Reply- No, although I am a frequent visitor, I found you at John de Ruiter E-Group.
[Oshana] John and I have had many humorous (well I forced him to laugh though I never sat in his lap like one Satsang teacher) and long conversations.
I once spoke to him for 90 minutes of a 180 minute session! People keep coming up to me saying "I know your voice. I really liked that tape. I listen to it in the car all the time."
I've haven't heard the tapes yet but one is called "From Endarkenment to Enlightenment" and my dialogue appears several pages into a chapter of the same heading in John's latest book "Unveiling Reality".
[Shelly] You asked>What's all this talk about 'some involuntary resistance to being all the way home?
Reply- There seems to be a core of resistance which is both acquired in a particular personality and genetically built into the organism.Of course this is part of the trance induction,but can be very tenacious.
[Oshana] We could have a Net dialogue over several emails about this or maybe we could have a Net chat (if I can find some time). Let's start bt email and print the compiled results later. OK?
Oshana's Q: 'What' is resisting 'what'?
[Shelly] You say> I'd love to abide in the hills too.
Reply- Send some biographical information and a photo, and we will consider adopting you. We both love noodles, Chinese, Italian, you name it.
[Oshana] I love being adopted by warm-heated Americans.
[Shelly] Below is some silly humor for you. Love and best wishes to you. Shelly.
love to my new family,
