I am reducing my 1:1 rate to 30 euro an hour. I am offering free 1‑hr 1:1s to anyone who wants to participate in Dave Oshana events. See below for full story.
For the peanut-gallery-dwellers, there are three new Kubrickon interviews and a fourth (AeonByte) on its way: find them listed here (this link is where you can always check for new interviews, as well as my Twitter feed)
A few weeks ago, I wrote a newsletter about soul-purpose and suffering. It basically said, if you are suffering, then you aren’t living your soul-purpose, so your life becomes all about suffering. So how do you know you are living your purpose? Because you aren’t suffering!
This may be an unpalatable message for some, and so I will fill in a few missing parts. The Soul’s purpose is very different from the mind’s sense of having a purpose. If you think you have a purpose, you are probably wrong. Soul-purpose can’t be thought about, it can only be lived.
A few months ago, I wrote a newsletter about all the little boxes of meaning and anticipation we compartmentalize our lives into. As a child, opening the next window on my Advent Calendar, counting the presents under the tree, waiting for the next Spiderman comic or the next episode of “The Six Million Dollar Man,” all these things gave me mental sense of purpose. They gave me hope. But they were all just distractions.
Now here’s the worst part: Most people’s ideas of “spiritual progress” are really no more than two-dimensional windows in a cardboard calendar.
Soul-purpose means finding out who you are and becoming it, becoming it by living it. Where there is a mental sense of purpose, there also is a deep black pothole in the Road of the Soul. Any purpose the mind provides has its dark side. It is there to hide the sense of futility caused by being cut off from the Soul.
This makes it really only another form of addiction and distraction: because what the mind gives, the mind taketh away again. The mind creates a purpose and fulfills it, only to be faced with the same emptiness all over again, unto death, and beyond.
This is where mental suffering is complementary with finding and following your Soul’s purpose: letting the Soul lead means not letting the mind get what it wants. For the mind, the Soul is Satan himself, the destroyer of worlds, the accuser of inauthenticity and emptiness. Why? Because the mind is Satan: the entity that has occupied the space where your Soul was supposed to go.
For the soul to enter, then, the mind must go—to Hell.
TL;DR: while you will suffer if you don’t live your soul’s purpose, being willing to start living your soul’s purpose isn’t an instant get-out-of-Hell free card, but the reverse: it requires a willingness and ability to endure real suffering, the suffering of a mind going cold turkey. It requires entering a darkness dark enough for the faint and distant light of your Soul to be glimpsed. Why? Because all the fake lights and baubles we have used to keep that darkness away, prevent us from seeing the true light of the Soul.
All this is meant to inspire you: to take a risk that you would not normally take, and to thereby have a chance at having a real chance. What sort of chance? Reach out and find out.
I am reducing my 1:1 rate to 30 euro an hour. I am offering free 1‑hr 1:1s to anyone who wants to participate in Dave Oshana events.
I have been telling you for years that Dave’s thing is the real thing, and that the option of taking part in it was slowly but surely vanishing. Money is not enough to gain access to it, far from it. To participate you cannot choose, you must be chosen.
Think about it for a moment and you may see that this makes it essentially the perfect opportunity for anyone with cojones and a true commitment to change. Why? Because if you are able to gain access, then it is virtually guaranteed that you belong there.
OK, true, you may still bottom out, and people do all the time. It is TOUGH-GOING, and only the tough get to go there. But aren’t you just a little bit curious to find out if you have what it takes? For this reason (because I am curious), I am currently volunteering as the gatekeeper to Dave’s thing. To get to Dave you have to get past me! (Hey St. Peter, where you going with that pen in your hand?)
Contact me ASAP for a half-price 1:1, or for a free 1:1 to (maybe) join a Dave event.
