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
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.”

“As their sense of personal will diminishes, people often say to me, “I don’t even know how to make a decision anymore.” This is because they are operating less and less from a personal point of view. There is a new way of operating, and it is not really about making this decision or that decision, the right decision or the wrong decision. It is more like navigating a flow. You feel where events are moving, and you feel for the right thing to do. It’s like a river that knows which way to turn around a rock – to the left or to the right.
It’s an intuitive and innate sense of knowing.”

“This kind of flow is always available to us, but most of us are too lost in the complexities of our thinking to feel that there’s a simple and natural flow to life.”
 
Adyashanti

Beautiful words by Adyashanti that I really resonate with. For me this is one of the greatest blessings of spiritual growth. Over time, as ego and mind get more and more out of the way, life becomes more and a flow, easier and simpler. Just the way Adyashanti describes it.

Hello Jeroen,

I was looking for Dolano extra info (i am so thirsty) and i find you. This i am going to tell you its the most amazing experience i had in my life and would like to share with you.

I am a 40 year old from Ibiza, where i still live. I enjoy the simplest things of life and had always been very thankfull for how lucky i am for realizing life is a beautiful miracle. I never even thought about practicing meditation, never had a spiritual kind of life... but some months ago i red a book and followed "an easy meditation exercise" . So i closed my eyes, started breathing, put all the emerging thoughts away and left my mind in calm, and after a little while something happened: there was my body of course (i was breathing) there was my mind for sure, and suddenly i realized was somebody else there observing my mind, i was that other presence. I was not my mind!!!! This feeling was like inside of me was an abyss of calm, and my mind was a kind of shield that made of all this things like fear of course, and pride or caution or so many many others, to protect me... then from this presence came the answer that i dont need to be protected, so eternal i was... wooooow!!!! From that moment i have been so thirsty to know how to get in this presence again. I meditated, asked, searched, and found out i had a espontaneous Satori. I heard Mooji, Gangaji and finally i found Dolano. When i listened to the way she explained things in open satsang i felt full recognition and wrote to her to go to Pune. She adviced me to not to be in a hurry and listen to all satsangs (i forgot telling her in my enquiry that i was absolutely hooked to her tapes, hahaha, very surprising por a person who wouldnt had understood a word before Satori and now Dolano was like music to my ears)

I am in the path, and decided to go to Pune whenever dolano thinks i am ready. Noticed that after last satsang you stopped writting this blog, please i would love to know more of your experience, if you would like to share. I hope you check this some time, haha... if its possible write to my email address which i check daily. Thanx in anticipation!!

Best wishes from your curious spanish friend.

Vanesa.

Hi Vanessa,Nice to hear from  you! I am sorry I reply you this late but I had not written on my weblog for such a long time that it took quite some effort to validate your reaction and have it posted. And without your e-mail address I could not e-mail you.

I am not sure what I can tell you about Dolano. I cannot really relate with your experience since my path was very different and while I had all kinds of experiences, it was always about the lessons for me. About finding things about 'myself', about conditionings and most of all about the workings of the mind. So the experiences themselves where never really that important. All I can tell you is that in the end it is not about experience. And the path is to find out that experiences, however special, are something fleeting, not permanent. But I do hear you. It really seems like you had a glimpse of 'something' that created this thirst and a knowing that a different reality is possible. Adyashanti talks about that too and then calls these glimpses 'different awakenings'. In Dolano's language there is only one awakening. You either are or you are not. But maybe these 'pre-awakenings' of Adyashanti is what you experienced.In any case, that for you there are ringing bells when listening to open satsang is always a good sign. Keep listening!So I do understand that Dolano advised you not to be in a hurry. I would say the same. You write you started meditating. That would be the best preparation for Intensive Satsang in my opinion. Certainly since you were never consciously on the spiritual path, I would check that out. I'd say, keep meditating and start seeing 'what is now' rather than bother about the experience you had. That was then and is history. And - that's probably why Dolano is hesitant now to accept you for intensive - there is always the risk that you think you know something based on a past experience, rather than being able to see what is now in this very moment. 

As I hear you it seems that this experience (whether you call it satori or anything else is not so important) brought you on the spiritual path. That is great. My feeling is your path will be a lot shorter than mine, but stil, I'd enjoy it as it lasts. Explore whatever attracts you. Dolano is really the end. The end of all these special experiences and many other amazing and wonderful things you can experience on the path. My conscious path lasted 24 years of which 7 years very intensively. You'll almost certainly will take a lot less. But I would not be in a hurry. I know people who came to Dolano early in their spiritual path and believed they woke up but without any doubt didn't. In my opinion that's the worst thing that can happen. Because then you think you are there but you are not. None of these people repeated the intensive and they are still on the path. Only believing they are not...

A Dutch Sannyassin friend of mine asked me about Dolano already years ago. I strongly had the feeling she wasn't ready and never encouraged her to go. Now she is very succesfull leading meditations. Something she almost certainly would not be doing if she would have gone to Dolano.

I might write more about my life since Dolano, but there is much less drive to write than there was before or just after Dolano. What I can say now is that most of it has become very ordinary. Maybe with the exception of one big demon that keeps haunting me. That might be an interesting topic for another blog.I wish you all the best. Great you are on the path. I have no doubt you'll end up with Dolano but I would not be in a hurry in your case.  Saludos desde el frio (nice place you live ;-)),Jeroen P.S.: If you feel like writing me about anything. Do not hesitate. This stuff is always a lot of fun.

Dear Jeroen,

Thank you very much for your answer. I thought you would not check this blog site so its been a very nice surprise.

I do really appreciate your tips and if you could recomend to me some ridings or videos would be very helpfull. Its funny to share this things with a total stranger who lives two thousend miles away, but i could not be understood by friends and less by family, so had to keep all this to myself, but this is going kind of too big...

Right now i find myself in a complex and intense flowing, which i have learned just to watch and enjoy the tryp, but even so some times this new state is quite confusing...

I tryed to explained this on a long mail that i could deliver to you. I send you my mail address ust in case you wouldnt mind answering.

Best regards from warm meditarrean winter, hahaha...
