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)

Flowing with life, going with the flow  
 
One of the main ‘characteristics’ of the enlightened beings is to flow with life, to flow with existence. There is a deep trust and understanding that the universe manifests whatever needs to be manifested. This probably sounds more spiritual or religious then most of what I’ve written but it is of course what we make of it. If we start calling it God or miracles we risk to be soon back to square one, to beliefs and illusion rather than understanding and knowing. The awakened ones totally trust the universe because they understand its laws. They can understand that someone dying could be ‘right’ just like gravity pulling something down is just following the laws of the universe. In religious terms this way of being could be described as ‘Thy will be done’. It means that instead of letting the ego with all its likes and dislikes, with all its ideas and beliefs and with all its morality, lead in our lives we start looking for patterns and signs and let life lead us.

Breaking free from bondage?
 
Enlightenment, awakening, liberation is all about freeing yourself from bondage, the bondage of the ego, of beliefs of emotional investments of everything inside ourselves that makes us not free.   I had a dream this night which could be significant in this regard. Dreams can always be explained in different ways but this was one that seemed remarkably clear. I was led into a prison cell which had been mine. It was very small, just a single bed with a meter beside it. And in my dream I realized this is where I had lived. Then I was led out of the cell and out of the prison. While I waved to my fellow prisoners, who now stayed behind, I cried.

Awakening: Caught halfway  
 
Reading about awakening, and more even, the awakening process I realise I am somewhere caught halfway. The process is when your cosy little world with all its beliefs, comforts and tranquilizers falls apart. Something like that happened when my last relationship ended but it still was more typical psychological crisis or depression with emotional wounds like my fear of abandonment triggered than a true awakening. That process has started later with workshops, courses, reading and meditation that showed me that what I always thought I was is not what I am.
 
And even more: that what I thought life is is not what it is. Life used to be a nicely ordered thing where high on top of the ‘important list’ was ‘work’.

Truth, enlightenment and my own spiritual journey
 
The path, I already found out, is hilly and unpredictable. Healing, awareness, let alone enlightenment are not like training for a marathon. It is not that you simply have to run more to progress more, let alone that you can say anything about how you’ll feel.
 
Like probably most people, I started off on the path of healing and spiritual growth (or however you want to call it) to become happier. Or, as it was in the beginning: to become less unhappy. Then healing happened, emotional releases and catharsis took place and even very noticeable physical changes have shown me that healing is a reality. But without really planning it, from a path of therapeutic healing (albeit using much more effective tools than psychotherapy) I ended up on a path of deconditioning and meditation. From healing wounds and old pains I ended up on a path looking for truth. And, without ever desiring it, I have come in contact with masters whose only interest is in leading their disciples to enlightenment.
