Understanding What Is Enlightenment
oshana radio transmission
It's no surprise that so few attain Enlightenment but it is a pity that more don't - because, I believe, given good guidance, example and environment that they could.

The first problem is understanding, or more, precisely misunderstanding. So many people are seeking understanding but instead of receiving it all that get is a car boot sale load of misunderstanding.

It's like everyone is looking for a map of Rishikesh but the only map being sold is of one of Calcutta. Worse, the map of Calcutta attains cult-like status due to its ubiquity which sparks a cottage industry of pundits, aiming for fame and fortune, during the spiritual credit crunch famine. "Yes you too can go to Rishikesh" they tout - although it's really Calcutta.

Calcutta thus becomes the yardstick of bona-fide spirituality and everyone adopts Calcuttan ways: dress code, customs, cuisine and some not so healthy ones (but who cares Calcutta-ness is next to Godliness). If you don't speak with a Culcuttan accent and can't do the proverbial head-wobble then you will be conspicuously judged as outside of the nouveau cognoscenti.

Of course, it's all just a marketing scam. If the impoverished Emperor has no clothes, it's not because no-one dares to tell, it's because no one wants to know. But one clue is that when the masses say they have found IT, then IT probably is somewhere else. Jesus gave similar advice concerning rumours of his reappearance. None the less, this won't stop people speaking about IT as if they know IT, because people will talk about anything which they think is in fashion because they dare not be seen as unfashionable.

Getting enlightened might mean being unfashionable.

My first task as spiritual teacher is to clear up misunderstandings. Otherwise seekers listen but they can't hear (another of Jesus' observations). Furthermore, they cannot use their mind, energy and attention effectively - and they will need to if they are to crack out of their fascination with the thoughts in their head to break through to the larger awareness which awaits them.

This are other types of understanding, other than intellectual, there is an existential understanding at the soul level but if I write any more I will have typed out the whole online class. It's much easier to listen in from the comfort of your own home. So join me in for the online class this Sunday and every Sunday at daveoshana.com. After booking your class you will receive special orientation information and guidance.
