Past Lives & Reincarnation

I don’t talk too much about this topic openly with other people as people may easily misunderstand and think I am just talking nonsense. But I feel Now is the time to reveal more truth. First and foremast, past lives and reincarnation is very real and true. Reincarnation and karma are the fundamental truth of human existence.

Three Stages of Enlightenment (according to Osho)

There are three stages of enlightenment. The first is when the first glimpse happens. I call it mini-satori. When, for the first time, for a single moment mind is not functioning, there is a gap – no thought between you and existence. You and existence, you and existence… for a moment… and the meeting, and the merging, and the communion, and the orgasm… but for a moment. And from that moment the seed will be in your heart and growing.

The Paradox of "Seeking Enlightenment"

Enlightenment is our natural state, we are all born enlightenment, we are all born as Divine beings with unconditional love to existence. However, as we grow up, society and people keep putting into ideas into our minds and our minds keep growing complex, which obscures the purity of our consciousness and we became “dis-enlightened” through the process.

How Tantra Makes Me Monogamous

For a very long time, I was very skeptical about monogamy. I did not think it would work. In my early twenties, I had two monogamous relationships and both failed disastrously, that was before my awakening, and I was just living like a "conventional person" in a conventional society, studying at university, hopefully looking for a job after, perhaps getting married one day, doing what everybody else was doing.

Tantra Failed For Two Reasons

Do you see shortcomings in the teachings of Tantra that incline you to feel tantric methods are not suitable for us? It is not a complete system. There is a basic fallacy that human beings fall into: they find a small truth, a part of the truth, and rather than discover the whole, the remaining part they imagine to fill up the gap. Because they have part of the truth, they can argue and they can manage to make a system, but the remaining part is simply their invention.

Ethics For Tantra Teachers

Sexual trespasses are what I see very common in the tantra world between the teachers/healers and students/clients. I had also unfortunately experienced such trespass while in the role of client, that's why I feel the need to speak up on this subject and also the need to share the following article written by Ma Ananda Sarita.

The Dark Side of the Tantric World

This morning I woke up reading an article titled "Women Accuse Agama Yoga Founder Swami Vivekananda Saraswati of Sexual Assault" on Medium. You can read the full article here. I am not surprised at what this article says, and I am glad someone finally speaks up. I have been wanting to write an article sharing my own experiences and rather bizarre encounters in the tantric world and the dark side of it, and now I feel it is the time.

All Roads Lead to Rome, All Paths Lead to Enlightenment

Religions ought not to create separation. Instead of advocating for eradicating religions and deny religions all together (Sam Harris’ argument), one can also choose to view that all these different religions and spiritual practices are simply means to the end. They are tools to assist us to accelerate our spiritual evolution, to help us to attain enlightenment, or liberation or whatever you want to call it.

The Source (Osho Zen Tarot)

When we speak of being "grounded" or "entered" it is this Source we are talking about. When we begin a creative project, it is this Source that we tune in to. This card reminds us that there is a vast reservoir of energy available to us. And that we tap into it not by thinking and planning but by getting grounded, centered, and silent enough to be in contact with the Source.

Awareness (Osho Zen Tarot)

The veil of illusion, or Maya, that has been keeping you from perceiving reality as it is, is starting to burn away. The fire is not the heated fire of passion, but the cool flame of awareness. As it burns the veil, the face of a very delicate and childlike buddha becomes visible. The awareness that is growing in you now is not the result of any conscious "doing", nor do you need to struggle to make something happen. Any sense you might have had that you've been groping in the dark is dissolving now, or will be dissolving soon. Let yourself settle, and remember that deep inside you are just a witness, eternally silent, aware and unchanged.

Nothing is Yours

If you are happy at the expense of another person's happiness, then you are forever bound. From the very beginning we start poisoning every child with the poison of competitiveness. By the time he comes out of the university he will be completely poisoned. We have hypnotized him with the idea that he has to fight with others, that life is a survival of fittest. Then life can never be a celebration. Then life can never have any kind of religiousness in it. Then it cannot have any quality of sacredness. Then it is all mean, ugly.
