Getting Enough Vitamin L: Love

Dave Oshana seeks to give you life in all its fullness by recognising what love is and is not. True love is the missing L Vitamin. Elusive but worth finding, obtaining it could kick-start your life in all kinds of ways.

There’s a new vitamin that everyone needs to be happy and survive but few know enough about to derive. It’s Vitamin L. “L” for love. Not L-O-V-E love or pop song love. Not romantic love. Not being in love. Nor falling in love. Nor falling out of love. None of those expressions come close to getting your supply high.

Life without the Love Vitamin? That isn’t so comfortable. Yet so many go without it, day after day, year after year. Like water, we are a dehydrated society. Most people know that something is wrong but they don’t know what is wrong. And so they go looking for love in all the proverbial wrong places -which leads to disappointment, disillusionment and more frantic seeking – until death do thee part.

Like anything which goes unsatisfied, the lack becomes over-whelming, disabling, distracting and all-consuming. Many people don’t actually start their real lives, the life they could have, the mission, the relationship, the family because they lack this basic love – Vitamin L.

Vitamin L is invisible. You can’t buy it in the shops. It can’t be manufactured by listening to a song or watching a movie. It’s not an emotion or a feeling. Vitamin L is a basic sense of being fully accepted simply for existing. Without this sense a person doesn’t feel that they have the right to be here or anywhere. They constantly doubt if they are right or wrong. The tiniest wobble in their plans, environment or the reactions of others can devastate them because, not so deep down, they are grossly and perpetually uncertain of themselves.

It’s a given that your environment, including those you would expect to give you perpetual eternal love, simply will fail to do so some of the time. At least from your perspective, if you have not grokked that love simply exists. But if you are looking for quick fixes and emotional highs, the Hallmark greeting card, that special event or birthday party – then surely you will be sorely disappointed – because none of those are Love itself but simply manifestations. Love is not a manifestation. However, love can be expressed through forms and activities. But if you can’t extract the love from the forms it takes then you will go eternally hungry.

Can you start to see that Love is essential to living fully, and that a life without love is dark, introspective and fails to flourish? Do you get that love is sought for in the wrong places? Do you sense that love is available for free? This online class seeks to make these realizations available to you in the anticipation that you will then have life in all its fullness.

Dissolving Stuckness With Consciousness

Dave Oshana explains stuckness: what it is and how to remove it by the application of Consciousness itself. The class starts is part explanation and part practical guided meditation.

“Stuckness”- it seems to follow some people around. Like a swamp, the more you actively you fight against it the worse it gets. It sticks to you more, drags you in. It doesn’t go away. Stuckness is not only being stuck, it is about something sticking to you. So the question is how to handle “stuckness” if it does not let you be free. More importantly, how to move on with your life?

Of course, sometimes you are exactly where you are supposed to be. In one sense, you are always where you are supposed to be. But is it possible that you aren’t – that you have gone outside of the present moment, that you are detached from reality? This also is part of stuckness – being stuck in the mind’s constructs.

However, we will be relating directly to stuckness in its energetic form, dissolving it and progressively travelling into more subtle energetic realms to dissolve more stuckness. Ultimately, there is no more stuckness – only free flow – that is the ideal and the aim.

When are free of stuckness we also are not stuck in our lives. Are you ready to have that kind of freedom?

Releasing the Ego’s Grip

Dave Oshana gives practical suggestions to deal with the biggest continual problem in your life: your ego.

Watch out! Here comes the biggest challenge of your spiritual life. Huh! What’s that? Laziness, fear, doubt, meditator’s knee, the Catholic nun who taught you? No, not even close. It’s The Ego!

The Ego gets blamed for everything even the kitchen sink, if not at first, then inevitably in the end. The word “ego” is used on in common language, psychology, psychotherapy and spirituality. Wherever you look you find different definitions but generally the consensus opinion is that the ego is not good, bad, nasty, contaminating and reason for quick shower. But few people can find, let alone shake it off.

The Oshana Teaching makes it simple by taking aim at what you can identify: the problems in your life and by tracing them back to their causes dealing with the issue at source. So we are always dealing with what is real which makes our actions practical. Most common ideas about the ego are theoretical and the methods impossible to practice.

In the Oshana Teaching the ego’s influence is identified, traced and resolved.
