Recently I started to notice how much I affect people. Just simple things. Playing sport with people in a playful manner somehow shatters egos and allows more love and goodness. Guiding friends in our home in Canada to things that are true for them seems to deeply effect their whole life and the lives of everyone connected. How I am with my family deeply effects how they love and flow and love. I notice that simple kindnesses can open great hearts and amazing doors of love, forgiveness and healing. Somehow life is very amazing. I feel like in some simple ordinary way, sharing of myself and this amazing life is both inspiring and loving. I feel we all have so much to offer each other in love, in kindness, and in creating unique situations and outcomes that create massive spiritual growth and awakening. Love ~ Love to you. Namaste
Friend of God
I have one friend who believes that he is the reincarnation of Hitler. He is a very intense man to say the least and also a very spiritual man. He can be very intensely direct in all things and very intensely total. He has a teaching that talks about a great change and a spiritual awakening of mankind. Now it is a little bit cute that his teaching although being spiritual in nature is somewhat structured identically to Hitler’s with him as the most enlightened character and everyone somehow surrendering to his teaching. Among spiritual seekers he was regarded in mixed form, ranging from quack to the greatest man who ever lived depending on the individuals’ closeness to him. He could have a very sharp temper and outbursts just like Hitler apparently did, but he also could be very clear and enlightened and very loving and supportive. His gurus said he had subtle ego. His friends said he was nuts. His disciples simply sat in silence. Truly a friend of God. ;)
Why is it so easy to Awaken?
Awakening is the easiest thing possible. It is the one thing that you do not have to do anything for. You don’t have to meditate. You do not have to search. You do not have to inquire. You do not have to avoid yourself. And you certainly do not have to fix yourself. You do not have to become better and you do not have to become worse. Enlightenment is the one thing that you do not have to do anything for. In fact you do not have to even be anything for it. Naturally; IT IS. Naturally; IT has always been and will always be. Enlightenment is not of the YOU. It is not a personal thing or a personal perspective. When you consider everything that is and you just leave it as it is, you have the suchness of what is. There is no effort involved. You may do and flow with doing, but there is no effort involved. Simply “wu wei wu”, effortless effort. Coming home to being effortlessly you. You R You. Wake up. It is already the case.
Why is it so hard to Awaken?
Someone asked me today why it is so hard to Awaken. The fact is that it is not very hard to awaken. In a sense it is super super easy to awaken. In a sense it is the easiest thing in the universe because in the deepest sense it is fully already the case. In all senses enlightenment is already the case in all cases. Imagine you are a bird who has forgotten to fly. You are a bird with slight amnesia and cannot remember how to fly. Now for a bird it is just a natural and effortless thing to fly. Now if the bird has a mind that fixates on the fact that it does not know how to fly then it can study long and hard in all sorts of text books on how to fly and it will find all sorts of answers that seem reasonable and true and none of these understanding will really help the bird to fly. The whole job of a master is to just create an immediate situation that requires you to fly. He will just take you to the edge of a massive cliff at the end of the world and push you off. He will not even teach you how to fly. He will just push you into the unknown and you will fly. It will be inevitable and natural. You are just falling and all of a sudden you will just start to flap your wings and fly and all of a sudden you will remember how simple it is to fly. When life or the master pushes you into the unknown you will just move as awareness without any though or dilemma to resolve. There will be no other way. Just a natural response to what is already the case.

To dance, to intimately play with life, to joyfully intimately play with life, to discover playful realness, to become a playful conscious being, is to gain intimate divine sanity; enlightenment. Letting go of suffering, letting go of fear and limiting stories, rebirthing soul as real trueness, you become intimate, intimately playful with love, with life, with death, with pretty much everything. You come home to your source dance; the dance, the play of bliss; Leela, the play of life. Namaste
You are an intimate being. Your soul is an intimate expression of love. Your dance is an intimate flowering of bliss. Your song is a perfectly intimate expression of love. Everything about you is intimate. This is not about reality. This is about intimacy. All paths, all deepening’s lead to perfect intimacy. The soul of the universe longs for perfect unity and intimacy. Unified intimacy is your essential experiencing. Dancing deeply, resting in the unknown, living as love, discovering the meditation in every moment, you are home, you are free. Namaste Lovely
Clear is clear. Clear has no past. Clear has no fixation. Simply no internal agenda. Directly clear, directly experiencing. Perfect, unknown flowing of clarity. Clarity is clearing everything. Direct experiencing. Direct relating. Dirrect encounter. Directly you.
Disha and I arrived New Zealand yesterday afternoon and are now cuddled in a country cottage on the outskirts of Nelson staying with friends at the Osho Advaita Center. It is such a yummy location. Low lying mountain hills surround us in all directions. There is a small river out back, a beautiful garden, a dog called Leela that has white hair and a golden spirit. The caretakers, Sakshin and Silke are super beautiful, playful and in love with life and each other. Their food is amazing, organic, tasty and healthy. The roosters are crowing as it's five in the morning and it actually sounds a bit like music to my heart. They got a new piano yesterday and I helped move it in and played for a while. I noticed that when I allow the music to express itself it becomes great and perfect. I have little technical skills with piano, although when there's an allowing, objective art flows forth. Sunset was beautiful and Disha and I fell asleep before dinner as our twenty two hour journey seemed complete. Such a beautiful country. Such beautiful people. Such a beautiful life. Namaste
Last night we arrived in Golden Bay and are staying with dear friends overlooking and near to the ocean. Such a lovely place. :)
Some family members asked me how to make a healthy green smoothie yesterday and so I wrote this out for them and anyone who might wonder about such things. Health is always awesome.
Green Smoothies make us healthy because they are full of healthy ingredients that energize, feed, nurture and heal the body. A green smoothie is an excellent and healthy way to stay healthy, fed, energized and filled with vital nutrients and essential energy.
So to make a healthy green smoothie basically you want to put 50% Greens and 50% Fruits, until you get used to the taste and then shift to 60% Greens and 40% Fruits.
Greens can include: Spinach, Kale, Swiss Chard, Iceberg Lettuce, Romaine, Cilantro, Avocado, Cucumber, Celery, Parsley, Wheat Grass, Beet Greens, etc.
All these greens are super healthy and nurturing for the body. A half or whole Avocado makes it all super creamy and yummy. Cucumber freshens things up. As you go along you will get a sense of what tastes good and which tastes you enjoy the most.
Fruits can include: Banana (nice smooth sweetener), Apple, Berries of any type, Mango, Pear, Kiwi, Strawberries, Blue Berries, Raspberries, Peaches, Grapes, Dried Dates (quite sweetening), Coconut Water, Coconut, etc.
Naturally they say you need a great blender but I have found most blenders work fine. I generally add one banana for one person as they make it quite sweet, as do Dates.
So Basically green smoothies are super healthy in mostly every way that matters.
Also you can add soaked almonds, almond butter and even almond milk.
If you have a green smoothie even just once a day or a few times a week, your health will greatly be great.
There are other things you can add that can greatly improve ones health called “Super Foods”, such as:
Bee Pollen, Chia Seeds, Chaga Mushroom Powder***, Reishi Mushroom Powder***, Cordycept Mushroom Powder, Mitake Mushroom Powder, Lions Mane Mushroom Powder, Cacao (Raw Chocolate Powder), Maca Powder***, Camu Camu Powder, Hemp Hearts, Mixed Medicinal Mushroom Mixes.
All of the above mentioned super foods are full of amazing nutrients and regenerative properties. To learn more about each individually and their amazing properties look them up online. Some of them have great taste too.
Also I tend to love adding a big chunk of ginger to taste. I also often add a small piece of garlic and it tastes great too and is super healthy. When blending all the ingredients you just add water so that it all just turns to a nice thick liquid green smoothie.
There are amazing recipes on the internet for great tasting green smoothies and also great books with recipes and much more information (Green Smoothie Revolution).
Remember that having green smoothies as part of a healthy lifestyle is not a quick fix or diet program but rather just part of healthy conscious living and lifestyle. It will help you to feel healthy and full of joy and energy.
So here is a typical green smoothie that I would make for myself in the morning for just me.
1 or 2 Swiss Chard Leaf
1 Celery Stick
Small Handfull of Cilantro
Half a ripe Avocado
1/4 of an English Cucumber
Slice of fresh Ginger
I would put all this in a blender and add some water and blend it until it is a smoothie.
This would be tasty and healthy enough as it is, but I would probably then add a teaspoon of mushroom powder for the heath regenerative properties and some Chia Seeds for the Omega 3 fatty acids and Camu Camu for the vitamin C and Maca powder for the reproductive health and vitality.
Remember, healthy living is not about having a quick fix diet solution. Heath comes from sustained healthy lifestyle, positive emotional awareness and creative conscious love. Enjoy.
