Welcome to Jeroensjourney 2!
Dear reader, Beste lezer,
 
Welcome to the weblog that follows on jeroensjourney.punt.nl. Here I will update you on my experiences in Thailand and India, and my personal inner or spiritual journey. After my healing journey described on jeroensjourney.punt.nl (with also information about Buddhism, meditation, Taoism and other healing practices), this weblog, from early 2007, relates about further healing and spiritual growth for an increasingly happy and true life.
 
With love from Asia,
 
Jeroen Deva Geetesh (jeroensjourney@gmail.com)

My year 2011: The Ultimate Shift

A new year, for me, always is a moment to look back and reflect on the previous year. While any of the previous 7 years have been exciting and dynamic with a love relationship ending, a new one starting, moving to another country, personal crisis and spiritual growth, world-wide travel for many months a year and much more, 2011 has been a milestone year like no other.

The end of wanting

I don’t want anything anymore – Dolano intensive

I wrote this note in February during intensive satsang with the Zen Master Dolano in India. I just found it back now and realise that this was such an important revelation. Maybe this resonates with you. Maybe like I did you recognise the suffering of it all. I, from my side, am happy it is all over.

Mijn spiritueel pad - korte terugblik
 
Voortbouwend op wat ik in antwoord aan Omnipleasant (zie vorige blog) al schreef nog het volgende:
 
Als ik terugkijk op het spirituele pad dan is het voor mij een pad geweest dat leidde van 'geinstitutionaliseerde spiritualiteit en religei' vol (bij)geloof, ideeen, dogma's en modellen naar steeds meer directe eigen ervaring met (uiteindelijk) verlichte masters als gids.
 
1. Ik ben ooit begonnen met een jaartraining Raja yoga. Dat was in 1988 en was inclusief een enorme hoeveelheid uiterst gecompliceerde (Indiase esoterische) theorie. De meditatie en asanas waren zinvol, maar van de theorie kreeg ik alleen maar hoofdpijn ;-)

Het verschil tussen ‘awakening’ en ‘enlightenment’

Ik schrijf normaliter in het Engels, maar omdat ik deze blog schrijf op verzoek van een bezoeker op mijn weblog - dank voor de vraag Omnipleasant - gaat deze even in het Nederlands. Dus bij deze een poging een antwoord te geven op de lastige vraag over het verschil tussen ‘ontwaken’ en ‘verlichting’.

Awakened life after Dolano Intensive Satsang - 3
 
Relating

Dolano, as did Osho, introduced us to the idea of relating rather than ‘relationship’. Relating is something that happens in the here and now, relationship is a construct that tries to fit the other person in a fixed role and creates an idea in our head about what this relationship is. Making it a thing, rather than a happening.

Also in this case, I understood what Osho meant. But since the Intensive Satsang relating has become a reality. How does that look? For me it means that, often to my own surprise, I interact and relate to strangers in a way I previously did not do. What I also experience is that I am more curious and much less judgmental towards people I meet. Dolano talks about ‘relating to intelligence or the Buddha in everyone’ and I see that happen from time to time. It is lovely because it feels a bit like everyone is a friend or at least an interesting person to meet.

Awakened life after Dolano Intensive Satsang - part 2
 
Back in Holland, now and a year ago

For me it is also interesting to look back at April 2010 and compare it with April 2011. In both cases I came back from 4 months in Asia (mainly India) after having done groups, retreats or, this time, satsang. Last year, and I wrote about that too, it was a big shock to come back to Holland as the whole dream Sannyasin life of groups, meditation, celebration and transformation made room for the ordinary Dutch reality of work and a ‘normal’ life. I then felt that the Dutch conditionings, mainly those related with (hard) work, jumped on my back and many other thoughts and ideas made that I quickly felt rather miserable. All I wanted really, was to leave the country.

Now things are totally different.

A new life after Dolano Intensive Satsang
28 April / 11 May 2011

Doing Intensive Satsang with Dolano has, without any doubt, been the most life-changing ‘thing’ I have ever done. I am writing here about it for myself and to share it with others who have done the intensive from whom I’d love to hear their experiences ‘post-Dolano’ or comments on what I wrote. How has it been for you after ‘Dolano’?
Whether for others reading this text makes any sense I don’t know, but I will try to write it in a way that it is also accessible for other advanced seekers on the path who might be interested in doing Dolano Intensive Satsang.   She is an enlightened master in India who facilitates a one-month transformational process which she also calls ‘The last satsang’ or ‘The end of the path’.
For more on Dolano, including open Satsangs you can listen to, see: www.dolano.com or www.friendsofdolano.org.

Flowing with life

“….you get a feel for how willfulness is replaced by a sense of flow.”

“When you get out of the driver’s seat, you find that life can drive itself, that actually life has always been driving itself. When you get out of the driver’s seat, it can drive itself so much easier – it can flow in ways you never imagined. Life becomes almost magical. The illusion of the “me” is no longer in the way. Life begins to flow, and you never know where it will take you.”

Thinking is not knowing
 
"When you think you understand, you don't. When you perceive directly, there is no thinking. You KNOW that you are alive, you do not THINK you are alive."
Nisargadatta Maharaj
 
Now this is an interesting one. For me, the first time I fully realised this it was like an awakening. We are so conditioned (brainwashed you could also say) into putting thinking above everything else that we are not even able anymore to see what is right in front of us. What is existentially true. Because our thinking clouds everything.

Dear reader

The change of year, for me, is always a time to look back on the past year. What has happened? Have I grown? What where the challenges and difficulties?

Rough rides in Pune

2010 was, again, a very very special year for me. It started where I am now, at the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune, India and last year, on the first of January, I was in the middle of a 3-week breath work training. A group that was so intense that my girlfriend said I was ‘green’ and I felt fucked up most of the time apart from just after Dynamic Meditation. It was a beautiful healing journey, but not an easy ride. But as with these processes; rough rides often lead to blissful states. My next group was Path of Love, not a beginners group either, but after 3 weeks of breath work I sailed through it and gave myself so totally that I had never imagined I could.
