What I really, really want is for Christmas is . . .

Me what do I want? Oh, I’m not denying that I don’t enjoy a pair of woollen socks and cotton boxer shorts, but what I really, really want is . . .

I realised this year why it is that the older you get that Christmas does not work. Our ancient ancestors must have realised a few days after the shortest astronomical day was a very good excuse the celebrate the return of the light. Perfectly acceptable behaviour until the religious and secular marketing men turned up to subvert the festival and progressively brainwashed the masses to associate it with myths, untruths and lies. Jesus was not born on Christmas Day and didn’t even follow a solar calendar. The only relevance of Santa Claus is that the original Saint Nicholas was connected to Turkey, the namesake of poor bird that gets gutted and stuffed in sacrifice ever so-called Christ-mass.

Jesus

If you want to be loving at Christmas you don’t need to get drunk, sing silly tunes, send e-cards. I don’t take up space writing the whole list of ridiculous behaviours. I invite you to meditate. I already gave a dig at Christmas madness yesterday in my evil twin anti-enlightenment blog, Un-Enlightened Society, in a post entitled The Matrix Meltdown at Christmas: Real Goodwill. Like all things spiritual and transformational, don’t read it unless you want an alternative perspective.

Into the real meaning of this post. I realised that Christmas does not work for me because it is unreal. It’s a ritualistic game of fake sentiments. I prefer to be real. Unfortunately, Christmas is an invitation, even a strong pressure, a Spanish Inquisition to suspend reality and sincerity.

I don’t ask for much so I never notice that I don’t get what I would really want for Christmas. First I would want Christmas to go away. Instead, let’s all go to the forest and cook over a wood fire in a yurt. Next let’s have some real food. All that wasted money could be spent on top quality organic delicacies and exotic foods. Me what do I want? Oh, I’m not denying that I don’t enjoy a pair of woollen socks and cotton boxer shorts, but what I really, really want is a website. Yes, a website! A fully functioning up-to-date website with all the content that would explain, describe and give the experience and understanding of the Enlightenment Transmission and Teaching. Until I have that site I know that my teaching cannot go forward without having to reinvent the wheel again and again. Once the website is there then many other projects can go forward. That’s what I really want. Now let me open that gift wrapped box . . . Oho! It’s a . . .

25 Ways How Enlightenment is Like a Never Ending Orgasm

Enlightenment is Like a Never Ending Orgasm. You sense eternity and infinity. You cannot imagine what it is until you experience it. It transports you outside of space and time. It makes you happy to be alive

Enlightenment Transmission Day 2009

This year you are welcome to join me in a blessing, dedication and meditation upon the miracle of The Enlightenment Transmission. Free event. See the event web page to apply for an invite. 2pm-4pm.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Special thanks to everyone who responded to the “Fast Track” request – an email has been sent to you. The main text will eventually be posted online. So everyone will see it.

Online classes resume after the Finnish Long Hot Summer Retreat, London August Teach-ins and Minneapolitan September Seminars.

HapPy mIdSumMeR!

I, therefore, strongly suggest that it is time to go fast track.

Every year, around Enlightenment Day, it becomes especially easy to awaken. An incredible amount of energy is liberated precisely for self-realisation.

This offer isn’t always available. That’s the message. Take it.

Dear Friends,

Summer is here! Never mind.

In Finland, everything stops as every formerly working person, escapes to the forest for rests. That’s why:

  • it’s the last live online class for awhile (all domestic internet services will terminate) but free audio and class replays continue
  • all registrations for the summer island retreat have to be in (you will know you are registered if you receive an email begging for a deposit on 09.06.09 or refusing your application)

Whatever you do locally for summer, I would like you to meditate on how many summers you have left (if this disturbs you then stop reading here). In Finland, there are only so many saunas you can have before your body shrivels up like a prune or a prawn and the big E-gal in the sky pecks you off.

This almost makes sense when you don’t think directly about it. The mind is incredibly over-invested in the illusion of continuity even when South Sea Bubble is absolutely certain to burst. Which means “you die, I die, we all die – spry, crisp ‘n dry.”

This summer marks the 9th Year of my Enlightenment (since 19.06.2000). This does not mean anything to you – but it could. All is lost unless you wake up from the dream of unreality. Only so many summers left for someone.

I, therefore, suggest (strongly for a change) that it is time to go fast track. There’s nothing to lose except all being lost. So, continuing on an uncharacteristic track, unseen since 2000-2002, I super strongly urge you to to bind up every ounce of grit and courage and go for IT. As I said, you have nothing to lose except everything, guaranteed.

Every year, around Enlightenment Day, it becomes especially easy to awaken. An incredible amount of energy is liberated precisely for self-realisation.

This offer isn’t always available. That’s the message. Take it.

Wanna go fast track? Think about it. Then act. Write me subject line: “I want to go fast track”

Dave Oshana

Looking Deeply Into A Person’s Soul

Soul-to-Soul connection, growth and development can happen every moment because of the Enlightenment Transmission

One of the recognised characteristics of the Enlightenment Transmission is the ability to look deeply into the soul of another. It happens spontaneously, without conscious desire. It simply requires tuning into what is already happening, a recognition that a deeper inner connection is there. This special online class, which explores a little known area of the Enlightenment Teaching, is the final class this season – no new dates have been confirmed.

Soul-to-Soul connection, growth and development can happen every moment because of the Enlightenment Transmission

One of the recognised characteristics of the Enlightenment Transmission is the ability to look deeply into the soul of another. It happens spontaneously, without conscious desire. It simply requires tuning into what is already happening, a recognition that a deeper inner connection is there. It feels like “locking on” – when two ships magnetically draw each other closer in outer space due to an invisible traction beam.

When we join with another they have the potential to breathe easier, to grow and develop. Transmission is like the sun giving life potential to everything which it touches.

When you go deeply into the present moment you can find yourself in communion with whatever presents itself. Typically, people treat others and themselves superficially, even when they are really crying inside for contact. This Transmission-oriented soul-to-soul connection is deeper than mere eye gazing, and can happen without even being physically present. However, people understand better when all of their sense can be involved.

Deep soul connection is an invisible prayer happening spontaneously outside of the mind – it says that we are together in this thing called Life, and that we can be victorious, and succeed, because we have contact with an eternal realm even in the midst of change.

This special online class, which explores a little known area of the Enlightenment Teaching, is the final class this season – no new dates have been confirmed. Please feel free to book the class at daveoshana.com. As always: first come, first served. You will receive a helpful email about preparing for the class.

A meditation to realise that you are greater than you imagined, take back your power and see life from the enlightened perspective.

The world, the mind, the creation. Where did it come from? When will it go? Like it or not you are on the merry-go-round called Life. It could go on seemingly for an eternity. Perhaps, it will only stop when you take responsibility for it and get it right, instead of running around, sunning yourself and pretending it is somebody else’s problem.

The first part of this online guided meditation will take you deep into yourself, dropping through the layers which keep you put and creating the freedom to travel. Here, you will meet yourself, your creator, and be able to ask questions and find answers to the perplexing problems which you have created. Ultimately, you will take the decision to exercise your power creatively and solve the problems of your creation, your planet and your world.

Pentecost 2009: The Fire Of Transmission

Pentecost 2009 is the year of opportunity wherein you can make a permanent connection to the Transmission, expand your limited identity and experience Life, Creation and Consciousness in all of its fullness. Make the connection; take the opportunity, because in life there is no guarantee of finding it this easily ever again.

The Holy Spirit is back!

Transmission is the fire from heaven, brighter than a billion suns, which releases the soul from its entanglement from the ego’s illusory identity

Nine years of Enlightenment, nine years of teaching – the same fire, The Transmission, which seared through the ties of my old identity, continues to burn away at the mistaken identification suffered by everyone who takes birth on this planet.

Transmission is the Holy Spirit which lifted up a simple, ordinary man to be the Christ, propelling him out of the wilderness, and into the cities to end the illusory path of mankind – which inevitably led to the end of his physical life. But Transmission, cannot be stopped, it is here from age to age because we tourists on Earth, yearn to be re-connected to our Homeplace.

Transmission will connect you to that place, the Source of Creation, from which you come, and to which you will return.

Scepticism & Discrimination: The Spiritual Razor’s Edge

On the spiritual path sceptisicm is your best friend. Scepticism sharpens the razor’s edge of discrimination, and you need to be sharp, otherwise you will be the blunt tool (which rhymes with *fool*). Awareness, energy and then scepticism are the first tools a spiritual seeker needs to climb the mountain to Enlightenment.

I don’t believe anything is true until I actually experience it

New seekers with stars in their eyes are sometimes shocked to discover that I don’t believe in anything. But it isn’t so bad a place to be because by not having a fixed position I can believe in everything. But why bother? Life is too short to believe this, that and the other – I’d rather experience Life and know what is real than believe in stories.

You won’t get off the spiritual path if you are invested in believing a single thing. Don’t believe – instead know. If you want to discover Reality then don’t believe in a single created thing. Reality is what precedes Creation.

On the spiritual path scepticism is your best friend. Scepticism sharpens the razor’s edge of discrimination. You need to be sharp, otherwise you will be the blunt tool (which rhymes with “fool”).

If you want to stay on the spiritual theme park merry-go-round then avoid discrimination at all costs. But if you are tired of the shiny, shimmering fake ride then hold scepticism in your bag of special abilities. It will get you out of some tight corners in which others have met their spiritual death through ignorance.

Awareness, energy and then scepticism are the first tools a spiritual seeker needs to climb the mountain to Enlightenment. If you are ready for the climb then join me this Sunday.

Investing in Loss: The Pure Way to Spiritual Enlightenment

If less is more then Nothing is Everything; Reality really is exactly like that. When everything that you have tried has failed then it is time to do things differently. Has it occurred to you that: You perceive problems because you create them? You never have enough time because you continually use it all up? You never arrive at your centre because you are always moving away from it? Your attempts to know yourself only create a false self? If so then it is time for you to apply *the principle of doing nothing.* From nothingness comes everything.

When everything that you have tried has failed then it is time to do things differently.

Has it occurred to you:

  • that you perceive problems because you create them?
  • that you never have enough time because you continually use it all up?
  • that you never arrive at your centre because you are always moving away from it?
  • that your attempts to know yourself only create a false self?

If so, then it is time for you to apply “the principle of doing nothing.” From nothingness comes everything, but from something only less can come. To turn the boat of your life around, and stop it steaming towards a less-than-pleasing horizon, your boat needs to reach a still point before it can change direction. Find the still point from where all potentiality can manifest.

If you like doing nothing,
and expect nothing,
then join this class,
but don’t be a slacker,
be a hacker
of consciousness,
I expect nothing more,
only less

If less is more then Nothing is Everything; Reality really is exactly like that.

I will show you exactly how to know all this and a new way of being.
