Absolute Freedom: Soul Level Karma-Free Action

A seminar by Dave Oshana

Absolute Freedom: Soul Level Karma-Free Action

Summary
Visit the birthplace of your soul, your true home, where all actions are karma-free and in harmony with the Universe and the Will of God. Understand the (Bodhisattva) principle of living to end pain and suffering of others. See beyond the illusory curtain of this world and realise the absolute freedom which you have inherited.

Message
The laws of cause and effect, more poetically known as “karma”, seem to be in operation everywhere.  However, mystics have referred to a transcendental realm which is unaffected by karma – we can call it the “karma-free zone”.

The idea of karma is complex but in its simplest form it is that every action has an effect. The personal relevance is that the effects of your actions have to be paid off. Unfortunately, debt payments cannot be paid immediately but are staggered over many lifetimes.

Bad deeds a lot of suffering until you learn to discriminate right from wrong action. Fortunately, good works, which you surely do, mean lifetimes of rewards on heavenly planets, enjoying seemingly unlimited pleasures and being treated like a minor god. Unfortunately, your credit runs out and you get sent back down to Earth to repeat the process again – ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Eventually, you get tired of this unending cycle of reward and punishment and figure out that there must be more to life and you become a spiritual seeker.  From there on you set your sights, all though you don’t know it yet, on finding the “karma-free zone”. In the “karma-free zone” you don’t get attached to anything and so you don’t have to physically incarnate ever again – this amounts to a huge saving in living costs.  However, if you are a Bodhisattva-type, meaning a “really nice person”, then you incarnate to relieve the suffering of others.

However, the physical body is subject to the laws of physics. So in that sense the Bodhisattva-type suffers, because all bodies suffer, on Earth for the sake of others. But the Bodhisattva-type is experiencing life from a different place compared to the average person. Whilst his feet are firmly on the ground, his awareness is not in his head, or his earthly identity but his transcendental activities in his eternal home.

The Bodhisattva-type would like to go home forever but for the sake of others stays in the body. This might remind you of Jesus describing how His Father’s home is not of this world.
If you would like to visit this heavenly realm then you can. There are two types of visas, temporary stay and permanent.

The temporary heavenly visa means you get to experience bliss, freedom and expansion but you cannot stay there indefinitely and you can’t choose how long you can stay or when you can go back. The permanent visa means that you are in the heavenly karma-free zone all of the time. However, the price that you pay is that you can never experience life from a mundane human perspective and never feel that Earth is your proper home.

The “karma-free zone” is actually the Primordial Space from which all of Creation came. It is insubstantial and un-manifest. In that place there is no distance, time or matter. Yet everything is there. Because there are no things therefore there are no actions. This is why it is karma-less. Yet, we can go there anytime because it is our true Home from where we came and to where we will eventually return.

The good news is that you can visit your Home before you finish all your incarnations because you already exist in that place. However, your worldly filters out spiritual information and stops you experiencing the full magnitude of what you really are. The mind creates the illusion of a fictitious world. Called “maya” in Hinduism and “The Matrix” in modern stories.  I show ways to go beyond the mind to that place where you can experience absolute freedom, where actions have no karma and everything you do is in harmony with the Universe and God’s Will.

Unshakeable Confidence in One’s Sacred Life Purpose

Spiritual teacher and psychologist Dave Oshana gives a unique seminar about happiness.
Unshakeable Confidence in One’s Sacred Life Purpose

Summary
There is only one right choice in each moment. The mind is too slow to figure it. Only your soul’s intuition can show you the way. I reveal an energy, a teaching and techniques which will take you out of the mind and into the moment where you will find unlimited wisdom and unshakeable confidence.

Message
How can you be sure that your next move is the best one?

It’s a lot of pressure isn’t it? Yet we will put ourselves under this pressure every day, many times a day for the rest of our lives. So it’s worth solving this problem, ending daily confusion and being able to get on with our lives in the certain knowledge that we are doing absolutely the right thing in any given moment.

First something to relax you. God  (or the Universe or Consciousness, whatever word suits you) does not demand that you achieve anything.  That’s right.  That’s not why you are here, sweetie. God wants you to enjoy life. That does not necessarily mean tonnes of hedonistic activities but to enjoy at least the fact that you are here, alive, breathing and in existence. And to laugh because when you laugh God gets to laughs too.

Maybe you feel the Truth in that but still you can’t shake off your old beliefs enough to relax and feel why you are really here. In that case come to the mini-seminar, and laugh at life and even yourself. Let’s clear up some myths, mistakes and misunderstanding – they are often the cause of problems.

If you could relax, then you would discover that life is fun and you would see more clearly. The ultimate aim is that you know who you are and what you want to do.

Also be aware that Life sometimes wants you to have a complete rest, that means to do Nothing.  Very few people dare to do absolutely nothing but it’s the necessary step before taking massive action and getting things done.

Once you have rested fully then your life force energy goes to the opposite pole towards absolute activity. If you allow yourself to go to both extremes then you avoid burn-out. If you get stuck in one extreme then you become disabled.

You arrive on the planet with a purpose to express valuable qualities like love, compassion, fairness and sensitivity. People typically forget this when they form a social identity during childhood conditioning . They act from their head instead of their heart and from whence comes competition, jealousy, paranoia and judgement.

Take  a holiday from the mind’s self-created prison. Re-experience the joy and direct contact with life. Without the mind’s negative filters the world looks beautiful and you become confident.

My healing method involves conscious, subconscious and invisible methods because the mind is invisible and has a subconscious component. Talking, giving advice, telling stories and jokes is the verbal part of what I do. The invisible part is managed by a powerful healing energy called the Transmission. It has worked miracles in people’s life. You can easily compare it to the Holy Spirit of Jesus’ time. I also show people how they can remove negative emotions and thoughts from their bodies by using their hands. When a person’s awareness moves out of the narrow prison walls of the mind it comes into contact with the realm of intuition from where one simply knows what is right. It’s like knowing where to hit a billiard ball to get all of the other balls to go into the holes. In that state, you quickly see that you only ever have one choice in each and very moment not many. The mind sees many choices and possibilities and this can lead to what I call “analysis paralysis” but the soul sees only one choice. That choice is always the right choice and thus you act always with unshakeable confidence knowing that life could not be any other way.

Dave Oshana
Raising consciousness, ending unhappiness and revealing the hidden dimensions of life is spiritual psychologist Dave Oshana’s mission.  From his lifelong spiritual practices came a huge awakening in 2000, a powerful healing energy, The Transmission, and an unstoppable sense of humour. Oshana’s teachings are practical, experiential and personal. The ultimate result is freedom from fear, deep peace and an effortless way of being. Originally from the UK, Oshana now lives in Finland and teaches internationally and online.

I Am Bringing Something Special To Your Country

Dear Seeker,

Can I call you a “seeker”? What is it you seek?

I think everyone is seeking happiness, but a spiritual seeker is one who has realised that long-lasting happiness does not lay in the trinkets promoted by society, such as, fame, fortune and power.

Jesus asked “What profiteth a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?” The answer is “nothing”. It’s a piece of skillful rhetoric. If only the whole of humanity could realise the futility of chasing temporary illusions. Until they do, responsibility for this world is yours. If not you, then who?

First of all, wake up to your true purpose. Do not dream, suppose, assume or speculate but find the Truth and you will have found the Truth of Existence.

I am coming to your country to teach again. Nothing can stop me.

It took 500 years for the Buddha’s teaching to be written as scripture. Only then could the teaching be transported to influence China, Tibet, Japan, Korea and many other Far East countries.

I am bringing something special to your country. An energy. The Enlightenment Transmission. It can easily bring Awakening with no effort. This proven to be true in nearly every case, but Awakening is not Enlightenment. Awakening is glimpse of Reality. It is to get you started.

The Transmission is moving. Move with it. You will be rewarded with spiritual riches beyond imagination.

May all beings be free in 2008!

Unshakable Self-Confidence Through Absolute Self-Realisation

Confidence. Everyone wants it. Many fake it. Only a few feel that they really have it.

What’s the secret of unshakeable self-confidence? How can I have it?

Actually, there is no secret. Self-confidence is not an accessory but an absolute necessity. A person with no confidence is unable to act with self-autonomy.

To a large degree every human being has lost their self-confidence because they have lost their self-awareness and purpose.

The easiest way to ensure self-confidence is to never lose it. Have you noticed that babies have endless self-confidence and enthusiasm? It is truly tragic when they lose it – the price of admittance to the so-called “human race”.

Given that so many have lost their self-confidence by the time that they reach their teenage years, then the only solution is a recovery operation.

What is it that has been lost when self-confidence has been lost?

Security, certainty, self-awareness, the ability to discern and discriminate and act spontaneously without doubt and inhibition – these are qualities which are lost.

First of all, let’s be clear about what does not work. Material acquisitions and attainments do not solve the problem of lacking self-confidence. If they temporarily seem to then time and changing circumstances will surely change them.

A permanent solution does not depend on external situations.

A person who lacks self-confidence has, by definition, lost faith in their own qualities and abilities.

This unfortunate situation ensues when a person does not know who they are.

Self-realisation is simply the re-gaining of the awareness of ones true nature. It is the ability to correctly perceive the world and to know the correct course of action. You can call that Enlightenment.

There is an energy which exists to help you get beyond your psychological and emotional obstructions. It is called the Enlightenment Transmission and it is available for all who truly want to recover their lost abilities and start living their life.

Fake Realisation: Fro-ZEN No-Mind

I received two emails from a seeker who met me once en-route to a jungle commune run by a drug-taking guru.

The email gave me an opportunity to explain a number of faults in spiritual groups of the “Get Nowhere Fast” variety.

Unfortunately, this type of “Nowhere” is not the supreme deluxe version but the regular mundane “Nowhere” version which can be experienced anywhere (like our city’s concrete jungle) but it’s so much easier to cope (presumably) with the mundane under the influence of drugs. I would have imagined that a jungle is so spectacularly wild that one would NOT need drugs but some people just can’t cope without their distractions.

The points which I made in the email refer to various aberrant spiritual groups (how judgmental) and not solely to the “let’s-take-drugs-in-the-jungle” crowd.

Rather than paste the two emails here I will just refer to the relevant lines. You can fill in the gaps. Just to give some context the writer claims to have achieved a “realization of the truth” over one year ago, and that there are other self-realisers in the same commune.

The main question in the email seems to be asking if self-realisers can change the world by reaching a critical mass. There is a strong suggestion that they can’t and that they make all the same interpersonal goof-ups as other people do. I take it further and state that some so-called self-realisers are actually abusers which begs the question what is a true self-realisation.

Below is my reply:

Greetings.

About the main ideas you wonder about [i.e. critical mass], I don’t think I have ever promoted them.

I frequently find that other teachings are really messy and that I am often asked to debug people’s confused thoughts.

Sometimes it’s natural to ask certain typical seeker questions, other times the questioner has been conditioned to think and question in a certain (useless) way. This makes them join the seemingly never-ending merry-go-round of religious fanatics and village idiots that we see every generation ruining the planet. Critical mass? Possibly – but most definitely spinning in the wrong direction.

The prescription for pseudo-religious brainwashing is mental detoxification -the dropping all religious beliefs. This has become a popular method in in the West in recent times – but it is not the end of the journey just a pit-stop on the road to Enlightenment.

Concerning so-called “self-realisers”, especially the “nod and a wink” variety, suspicions are raised when the person rigidly maintains a “no beliefs, no mind, no attachments” stance. This smacks of an anal retentiveness which is only of service in certain backward tantra groups.

It seems that there are many Western groups who hold this frozen position of pseudo-spiritual high rigor mortis. It starts with the fixed stare and the permanent smile. However, no amount of makeup and air-freshener, will make the purifying corpse of the faking-IT-in-the-belife that-this-is-making-IT seeker into the real thing, although naive mass followings (the greater the numbers, the worse the ignorance) (ref: Nuremburg 1936) can’t see the con.

For the discerning seeker, these Western groups unwittingly reveal their fake pedigree, much like a Cockney who has bought a Lordship when he opens his mouth to speak, when they misguidedly claim to be branches of the tree of Hindu Advaita (renamed in American McSpirituality as “non-dualism”). The original Shankacharya would be turning in his grave, except he may have been burned already.

Fake groups are unable to grow in anything but numbers, and certainly not wisdom, because like the recipients of every transplanted belief system they are orphaned and under-fed. They therefore eternally await The Final Reckoning when the missing intellectual jigsaw piece will finally be bestowed upon them – which it never is. What we see today, unfortunately, are a lot of humans claiming to be seekers but acting like like dogs barking up the wrong tree.

This is not to knock, what you have experienced. You have probably learned that experience is better than intellectual knowledge, and yet, beliefs have entered your reported “no-mind” state long enough to cause you to write me – twice! Itchy sods.

I would not appraise your current state without witnessing it (not that I am in the business of handing out MoT certificates [Ministry of Transport]). All I can say is that I have met a number of dubious characters who claimed to be “there” or had “IT” but who were conspicuously in a far worse state than your average Joe. Worse, they tended to act out, just as you fear in your email, in the most hideous ways. This is not to say that you are in that place.

However, I am uncertain of the ashram/commune where you are. It’s well-known that shamanic herbal drugs are dished out there like cabbage was in schools in my day. I don’t agree with drug use. Worse, I know of at least two cases of drug-induced insanity which required leaving the ashram to get long-term psychological and energetic help. Too dangerous. Drugs damage. I would not trust these groups.

You asked:

“How can self realized ones save the world? in the commune that I live
in there are several no minders, does this make the rest of us any more conscious…the answer is no.”

You have answered your own question, although, I would direct you to go further.

Is “self-realisation” the same as “no-mind”? Not necessarily, but from (a particular) no-mind can come the realisation of how one’s self will live. For me, that unavoidably and immediately meant being a spiritual teacher from the moment I got enlightened. So, self-realisation could be defined as knowing who you are and what you are to do in this life.

You wrote:

“Self realized ones (I don’t like to use the word “enlightenment” it just conjures up ideas or something to become)”

A person can even aim to become one of the “self realized ones”. I am looking for substitutes for the word “enlightenment” from time to time.

You demand:

“Tell me honestly David, do you not act out human behaviour, get angry, upset etc? I am not suggesting that you get attached to your own emotions but acting them out effects others around.”

I am glad you asked me to be “honest” ; ) – i don’t want to be like those dishonest ones who claim to be self-realised.

I would love to answer this question. Everyone wonders about it sometime.

I do act out human behaviours. I love passionate emotions, but I am often careful about when, where and how I express them.

You reason:

“Surely in these moments of human attachment atrocities can occur?”

That’s an extreme speculation. I don’t know what is possible. I know that I have learned to act responsibly with awareness and avoid hurting except to saves a person. You are entering the area of ethics and right action which will ruin your no-mind . Can you accept the price for extra growth?

Will real self-realisation save mankind? Yes, in time, if it spreads.

Will critical mass do it? That’s a vague idea which could be better defined. It’s not easy for people to change and there are not enough true self-realisers at the moment. But I want to see more – just not the FroZen No-Mind garden peas variety.

Blessings,
Dave Oshana

Distributing More Enlightenment Transmission Teaching

Dear Seeker,

I am constantly amazed by the Oshana Enlightenment Transmission Teaching.

7 years ago, before my Enlightenment Day on 19th June 2000, there was no Teaching – there was only Transmission. Even the concept of Transmission did not exist. There were only the results – unimaginably fantastic results.

The Transmission started flowing from the very moment that I got enlightened. The actual Teaching started flowing when the first students appeared (and that was very fast). The Transmission flows continuously, day and night, reaching students near and far. It is truly breathtaking to experience and witness its great intelligence and works.

Transmission brings spiritual growth, healing and purification to the recipient. Transmission also creates the Teaching from which knowledge and understanding arise. The ultimate aim of Transmission is self-realisation for individuals and healing for the human race.

The Teaching corrects misunderstandings about the Enlightenment process. Without Teaching there is no map. Without a map there is only misdirection. When, and if, awakening happens a person without a map becomes bewildered, even crazy.

Less than 0.01% of Oshana Enlightenment Transmission Teaching ever makes it into print. Consequently, a casual visitor to the Oshana Teaching web-sites never understands the full meaning and absolute value of the Transmission Teaching. I am quite certain that even the most convinced and committed students have not yet realised the comprehensive purpose of the Teaching.

The human mind cannot instantly comprehend the Truth, but the essence of the soul can. Eventually the mind becomes enlightened. The mind’s teacher is the soul, which channels Transmission.

My aim is to distribute the Enlightenment Transmission Teaching to a much wider audience. Until now the Teaching has been known only to those fortunate enough to group events and one-to-ones. Now with the help of those students the Teaching will go out to the public. It is clear that teaching and guidance must be made widely available to reverse the destructive trends within human society.

Seekers who have read only my latest blog posts may wonder “where is the spiritual enlightenment in discussing such a terrible thing as the recent school massacre in Finland”? Or those who read about Jesus and The Transmission might wonder “Is Oshana mixing metaphors”? I can assure you that there is the same spirituality in all these concerns – there just has not been the time to explain it online. Almost nothing has been explained fully to the public. But, now with the help of committed students that situation can be rectified.

My UK coordinator, suggested that a post from our Finnish list, Enlightenment-Finland, be distrubuted more widely. Consequently, the post has been pasted (with a few explanations about Finnish language) on my blog as ” To Be Good One Must Do Good” at http://blog.oshana.org/to-be-good-one-must-do-good/

I trust that such posts on my blog Spiritual Enlightenment are the first steps in making the Teaching more accessible.

There will also be distance learning for overseas students meaning “live online classrooms”. The first class was a few days ago. If you are interested in the next class (Jan 2008) then please pre-register by email.

Wishing All Life Abundant Blessings Through The Transmission,

Enlightenment Day & Responsibility

I believe that everyone can get enlightened.

Enlightenment Is Your Birthright

Enlightenment is the natural birthright from which you were cut off. The separation happened at such an early age that you can barely remember how it happened.

Helping Others Get Enlightened

My life’s work is helping others get enlightened. I got enlightened on 19th June 2000.

I do not see myself as special but I have something special to give to those who have not yet realised enlightenment.

I can introduce those spiritual seekers who are really ready for the ultimate gift, the final transformation of person-hood, to the wondrous experiences of being-ness which exists outside of this universe of space, matter and time.

When I completed my own spiritual journey for enlightenment, today is the 7th anniversary of my own enlightenment, my life completely changed. I went from being a private individual to immediately becoming a public enlightenment teacher. I was in a hurry to enlighten others. Someone commented via email “you sure landed on your feet running”.

Experience Enlightenment Not Concepts

For everyone who has believed anything about enlightenment, I can assuredly say that I wish that you could actually know living enlightenment, not as a concept, but as a reality for yourself.

Mind: Wrong Tool For Enlightenment

Enlightenment has been endlessly debated for thousands of years. Billions of conversations – enough words to fill all the internet servers in the world. Such are the machinations of the mind. The mind – the tool used to seek for enlightenment. The mind – the exact same device which – ironically – blocks enlightenment. Not that the mind is bad. It’s not bad – per se – it’s just not functioning in a way that supports enlightenment.

The Mind As Firewall Metaphor

The mind is like a firewall. A doorman to the soul. It either allows or denies information types. The unenlightened mind is configured to deny enlightened information and allow unenlightened information. The enlightened mind is configured differently. You may have already guessed that the mind of an enlightened is wired the opposite way.

Distribute The Full Enlightenment Teaching

The mind as firewall – neat concept, huh? A modern spiritual metaphor for modern technological times. You probably had not heard of it, even though it is only a basic concept in the Oshana Enlightenment Teaching. The more sophisticated concepts have, so far, only been received by those who are able to attend group teaching events in Finland and the UK. I wish it could be different and that the teaching could be more widely available.

I always wanted to share the Enlightenment Teaching with the world. God knows – you deserve it! Maybe, through the Internet, I can achieve that personal goal. But it does not depend only on my actions. It depends partly on you, and mostly on the Enlightenment Transmission.

Oshana: A Finger Pointing At The Spiritual Sun

For you who don’t know this: I don’t actually give Enlightenment. I am a messenger, an errand boy – not even a middle-man. By all means go straight to The Main Man – allegorical speech for the Source of Enlightenment – if you can. If not then come to me and I will see what deal we can do with The Man, aka Source, to get you enlightened.

Enlightenment Transmission: The Ancient Awakening Spirit Of Consciousness

I say, I am not even a middle-man because those spiritual affairs are handled by a spiritual power infinitely more versatile, flexible, omnipotent and omnipresent than little old me. That power, I call the Enlightenment Transmission – I have a reasonable hunch that Jesus called it (or her) the Holy Spirit (Hebrew: Ruach Ha’Kodesh). It logically follows then that the Enlightenment Transmission is that spiritual power which elevated Jesus from being a mere man to permanent Divine Communion, in other words, Oneness with God. But, as is often pointed out: with freedom comes responsibility.

Enlightened Humanity’s Responsibility

Would you like that amount of responsibility which Jesus carried on his shoulders? I don’t refer only to that well-known responsibility to remove the karmic debt of every member of the human race. Jesus had an even greater responsibility, which is rarely, if ever, spoken about – to fulfil the Mandate of Heaven.

What is the Mandate of Heaven? The Mandate of Heaven is to restore Universal Harmony. Mankind just happens to be a very important part of that Restoration Plan, because as co-creators, we are agents of change standing in the position of energetic mediators between Heaven & Earth.

That last paragraph was quite pithy! It indicates how deep the Enlightenment Teaching gets – fast.

First Revelation, Second Conversation

The Teaching is profound and if you don’t understand it, then like any teaching, it can lose the listener who does not have the ears to hearing. Hearing, or proper comprehension, depends on having necessary revelatory experiences, aka realisations. Consequently, the Oshana Enlightenment Teaching considers revelatory experience to be more important than concepts. Concepts are just symbolic co-ordinates to check that we are on the same map grid when we communicate. However, if a person has not travelled the terrain described by the map, then they probably won’t understand what they are looking at – and, if they are not well-trained then they could be a danger to themselves and others.

Handling Life, Dealing With Energies

The spiritual journey is a real path but it is totally invisible because it is completely internal. Since spirituality concerns itself with the mind, energetic channels, the nervous system and internal organs and vast inner galaxies beyond the mind it is not something to be casually played with.

Out in the field, real spirituality, is a difficult but precious commodity to handle. The difficulties arise from unpredictable energetic variables. Energy powers the mind and the emotions. Consequently, energetic imbalance can create mental, emotional and physical disaster areas. Fortunately, most of us are healthy and able to handle energetic change. Spiritual training can help immensely in this area.

Who Is Ready To Receive More Transmission?

So who is ready to “step up the plate” clear all the bases on the field and run all the way home ? If you get the baseball metaphor then did you also get that you could be on the side of the Enlightenment Transmission? It was not a side that I chose. The Transmission chose me. Not because, IMHO, because I am special but because I made myself available.

The Enlightenment Transmission, the exact same energy, which empowered Jesus could empower you – you just have to be there when enlightenment strikes next!
