Shut Up! & Be Happy!

http://www.SHUTUPGURU.com http//www.dvorahji.com I'm a happy/miserable/outspoken/idiotically creative/spiritually-educated/ city hermit Clown. One day (38-years-ago) I woke up and everything looked different. I walked to a park, looked up at the trees and sky -- and they were vibrating, sparkling, as was everything and everyone, including me. Things were not as they appeared to be. We were not solid. Everything blended. The Trees, the rocks, the people, my hand, we were all vibrating in unison. We were all ONE. I went back to the apartment I was staying, and noticed a book on table. It was by Allan Watts called, "This Is It!" I took the next plane home to Los Angeles and learned to meditate. Meditation was my path. I became a teacher of Transcendental Meditation. I wanted to know what was real and fair in a world that seemed so unreal and so unfair. For me the ticket was looking inside this body and mind -- where else could I go for answers? I meditated for 30 years, teaching meditation all over the world. I Studied with some of the greatest Masters and Madmen -- and still knew nothing. I talked the Advaita talk and cried the Bhakti prayer and had the usual spiritual answers about past lives, energy, consciousness etc. I had the rhetoric down. But I "knew" nothing. This may have been "It" according to Allan Watts, but I wasn't IT! And then, one day, a rainbow shinning through a window landed on top of my hand. I looked at all the colors - mesmerized in amazement. "How could something so unreal, look so real?" It looked as if true colors were painted on my hand, and yet it was only a reflection. I felt a switch go off in my brain. This world is not as it appears to be. The ONENESS I'd experienced in Haight-Ashbury came flooding back. This division, this unhappiness in myself and others, was like a mass hypnosis, an illusion, like the rainbow shinning on my hand. All I can say, is there is deep peace in the middle of this world that appears to be so chaotic, uncaring and random. There is deep knowledge that you can ONLY BE, and sounds so ridiculous and trite when you talk about it. Anyone Can Wake Up to their True Peaceful Enlightened Nature in the midst of heartbreak and confusion. That Possibility, that Invitation exists for Everyone
