Being and an Awakened Master of Samadhi?
"An enlightened being is anyone who
can remain in a relaxed compassionate space of deep listening,
communion, communication, and spiritual connection with the
Divine Universal Intelligence, while interacting from a grounded
real loving space with anyone people in the outer world.
It is only through a
constant surrender of our ego to the deepest parts of our being can
we discover this divine enlightened state.
levels of listening to and relaxing into the Divine Intelligence
are direct pathways for liberating our mind from the Illusion that we are all separate from the God Source.
more we practice this sacred relaxation, we will eventually awaken, and
then every experience
throughout the day feels like your heart is coming home." ~Jafree Ozwald
Below are just a few of the thousands of Enlightened Beings and Samadhi
Masters I've discovered who have walked
upon this planet and blessed us with their presence...enjoy!
Babaji of Haidakhan
This young man was found in a cave in India in
1970 sitting motionless for 45 days in meditation. He did not move, eat, drink or sleep.
He was sitting to absorb the highest state of consciousness and entered
Nirvakalpa Samadhi. Whenever people sat with him, they saw his body
radiated with light, and felt a great love and immense calming presence
His followers call him
Babaji and they say he is a Mahavatar, which means he is a Master of many Avatars.
An Avatar is a highly advanced spiritual being who has awakened his siddha
powers and has mastered this physical dimension. To the average human being an
avatar is the manifestation of God in human form.
The process that leads to awakening ones siddha powers requires
intense and uninterrupted concentration and sharp focus, also known as
samyama. This practice includes the 3 stages of yogic concentration (dharana),
meditation (dhyana), and superconsciousness trance (samadhi). Your Samyama
is complete when there is a fusion of these 3 processes as one.
It's not that any being who masters the siddha
powers is an enlightened being. One has to drop all attachment to their
ego to be fully enlightened.
Babaji's powers and
manifestation ability is truly limitless, and he can appear to
you in any way, at any time, and in shape or body. He reflects all that you are and
directs you to finding your soul's highest path. He has mastered
time, space and the physical world and his powers are fathomless to the
ordinary human mind. He is available to connect with anyone whose heart
and soul is 100% open to meeting him.
Krisna is another enlightened being, who walked this earth over
5000 years ago. In Hinduism he is viewed as a
God and not an actual human being. Krisna is always pictured as blue since the aura that radiated
around his body was seen as a bright blue light. According to the
came to Earth from another planet to teach a playful life full of
love, joy and laughter. He
loved to dance, make love, and play his flute. He loved thousands of women and could
move mountains with his mind.
The truth about Jesus
is that his real name is Yeshua and he was a great yogic master who
taught love, forgiveness and
compassion to the world. He traveled to India in his 20's or
the "missing years" in the Bible. He actually lived an entire secret yogic life
that is not mentioned in the bible where he
studied with many yogis in the Himalayas and enlightened masters. There
is an overwhelming amount of evidence on this fact, if you google
the missing years of Jesus or read all the scientifically documented
The picture above was painted by an 8 year old
Lithuanian girl who had a vision of him, and was later validated
that this is what he actually looks like by a young boy who met him
in a documented near death experience. You can watch the true
story DVD about this little boy's near death experience at
shall set you free." ~Jesus
Buddha lived in the 6th century BC. Buddha is actually an ancient word which actually means "the awakened
one". His original given birth name was Siddhartha Gautama, and he was a
prince who left his kingdom to seek for the spiritual truth that was
hidden from him as a child. After 7 years of following sadhus, meditating,
painfully searching to find absolute freedom from suffering, he
attained his enlightenment. They say the day he attained was
when he gave up his
search, sitting quietly under the Bodhi tree, where he found the
When we find the middle path, we are
side of the coin. This is our natural enlightened or transcendent state where the
mind exists beyond good/bad, right/wrong, and all forms of duality.
It was in this moment that Siddhartha realized freedom was about not
becoming overly attached to, nor neglecting his body, mind, ego, or
any thoughts that occurred to him.
In this amazing moment he woke up and
stopped all seeking, meditation practices, and taught this
liberating understanding to those he encountered for the remainder
of his life. Through his devotion to embracing his own suffering he
found real freedom. His awakening is still an inspiration to
billions of people all around the world!
"Those who are awake, live in a state of constant amazement." ~Gautama
Mother Mary is one of my favorite ascended masters as she
instantly brings in a great lightness, love, healing and feeling of
deep peace. She heals instantly by simply calling on her with deep
reverence and sincerity, she will come. Thousands of people
around the world have seen apparitions of her appearing in the
clouds, in church walls, and in their homes. She is available
at all times and wherever you are. Her spiritual essence is real,
powerfully healing as she is willing to help anyone who needs her love to
discover their own connection with the loving lightness of God from within.
was the founder of yoga 1500 years ago with his Yoga Sutras that gave
structure to the wandering yogis and mystics of the time. He was a
scientist on many levels, giving practical applicable methods for
finding God and reaching into the deepest core of our being. I highly
recommend reading this specific translation of his sutras,
How to Know God
as it blends the East and Western philosophy of thinking into one.
It is so deep and profound you have to stop every few pages to digest
and truly take it all in.
Paramahansa Yogananda was a very loving yogi who was an
amazing example of how to give your entire life to God, in love,
for love and through love. He left his body in 1952 and in
his wake he gave us one of the most amazing spiritual manuscripts
I ahve ever read.
The Autobiography of a Yogi, which is something everyone must
read who is on their spiritual path.
"You must not let your life
run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done,
something that will dazzle the world. Show that God's creative
principle works in you." ~Paramahansa Yogananda
Osho is one of the greatest rebels you'll ever meet on this
earth. I love this about him. I love the words he
speaks, they are poetic and true to the soul. Osho left his body in
1991 leaving behind him more enlightening information than any
person who has walked this planet. He has over 600 books and 600
millions words in print, making him the most prolific being on this
planet. His book
of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic" is provocative, humorous,
insightful and enlightening and a good introduction to this amazing
"Ecstasy is our very nature; not to be ecstatic is simply
unnecessary. To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous. It needs no
effort to be ecstatic, it needs great effort to be miserable. That's
why you look to tired, because misery is really hard work; to
maintain it is really difficult, because you are doing something
against nature." ~Osho
Sai Baba was a master Avatar who lived in India and left his
body in 2011. He created healthy drinking water and
environments for thousands of very poor Indians. He manifested
things out of thin air, doing many miracles everyday to break the
belief system of the mind that says "somethings just are not
“You must be a Lotus, unfolding
its petals when the Sun rises in the sky, unaffected by the slush
where it is born or even the water which sustains it!” ~Sathya Sai
Below are my
Satsang Teachers who have shown me the most direct path to
reaching the Enlightened State of Being.
Ramana Maharshi Ramana was the man who sat with my teacher's
teacher. You could call him my great grandpa on the spiritual
path. He is a very simple man, had only 5-6 possessions
and lived in a cave for a majority of his life.
The Essential Teachings of Ramana Maharshi is one of the
most simple, direct and profound spiritual books of his most essential
teachings. His powerful basic teaching has transformed me, and still
does to this day.
"One who knows the Self has
nothing more to do, nor has he any more thoughts. From then on,
the infinite power will carry out all further actions that may
be necessary for him." ~Ramana Maharshi
Papaji also known as H. W. L. Poonja
left his body in 1997. He sat with Ramana Maharshi and was my
3rd spiritual teacher who helped me have an instant direct experience of the God Source within.
It was through a total stopping of the mind, a complete stillness
of all egoic desires that total freedom found me. You can

are a few videos to get a taste of his deep wisdom.
"Stillness is the greatest
achievement one can have in life." ~Papaji
Robert Adams was a self realized man who
many have never heard of, yet he got to sit with Ramana Maharshi in
person. I highly recommend reading his amazing series of books
of the Heart" which were dialogs his students had with
him. He was a quiet man, a self-realized being who helped me to
discover and ground my own realization deeper within myself.
"Find the source of the
"I". Follow it diligently until you merge with the Source." ~Robert
is an American man who woke up from sitting for many hours in
meditation and with the help of a zen teacher. I got the pleasure of
attending his gatherings several times in Hawaii. He is funny,
poignant, curious, open minded and wonderful to listen to. He lives
in California and is still holding gatherings to this day.
"If there is a primary
practice or path to enlightenment, this is it, to cease cherishing
Nirmala is one of my favorite teachers of all. He is sweet,
authentic, kind, has a huge heart, is super intelligent and knows
much more than he leads you on to know. I was given the gift
of getting to sit in his satsangs for many years and we are still
good friends to this day. He has tons of free material for
you to experience online at
"There are basically two
movements of consciousness: Love and Fear. Love is allowing what is
and fear is resisting it." ~Nirmala
Pamela Wilson is
another of my favorite satsang teachers. She is sweet, sexy,
funny, and has such a great curious approach to life that is simply
divine. It is worth getting to spend time with her if you can
get into one of her retreats, find out more at
"Every thought, every feeling,
is a visitor. You just say: Welcome! Come in and sit
with me." ~Pamela
Gangaji was my 2nd spiritual teacher who I randomly met in Maui
in 1994 and she directed me to meet her teacher Papaji in India.
She has a very ruthless, fierce, sword of truth that cuts through
all your bullshit and pulls you into the real Truth of who and what
you are. It is worth getting smacked in the head by this
amazing woman, she is a highly intelligent being who knows human
"Trying to quiet the mind is
just some noise trying to make some other noise, less noisy.
Simply recognize that which is already silent." ~Gangaji
How to Wake Up and Become
an Enlightened Being?
There are many routes to freedom as there are moments in your
day. Be careful as all religions contain doctrines which take you
deeper into beliefs, thoughts and the mind instead of into this very
alive precious awakening moment. You will know for yourself when you
are awake, as it will be very obvious that you are not suffering
anymore. To find
yourself you must be willing to lose yourself, and let go of your
old ways of perceiving the world, yourself and reality.
secret I've found on this enlightening path is knowing the
all intelligent loving Universe is always here guiding us in every
moment towards our highest experience of ourselves. Each moment is
divine, and you are the one you've been seeking for many lifetimes.
You are the perfect divine being who is absolutely pure, sweet and
secret is to trust in the healing process. You have been
wounded mentally, emotionally and this causes you to perceive
yourself as separate from the Divine. It is good to know that your
soul has come here to work out its karma and that the Universe never
ever makes mistakes.
We simply don't see the bigger picture, what is truly inside the
soul, and if we did we would be very quiet about it all.
personally, I had my first experience of Samadhi when I was 25. I was taken down the path of sitting in
Satsang. I was led for many
years to meet many satsang teachers who were truly on a path of self
inquiry. I found that just sitting with myself, looking within
was by far the fastest and most direct path to having spiritual
insights and a true awakening.
Satsang simply means sitting with the truth of who you are. Your true
nature, at ease in communion with the Universe. To find a
satsang happening in your area
To get a taste of Samadhi and have a
glimpse of enlightenment, it requires 100% total devotion to yourself, your greatest
experience of love, joy, freedom and complete surrender to your spiritual path.
It is not about neglecting anything of this world, yet more
about being gentle with yourself in the most intimate ways. It's
about taking care of
your body, your finances, your relationship, yet making your
spiritual exploration the priority above everything else.
It requires that you constantly remember the impermanence of
this physical world, and that you don't get to take any physical
things with you when you die. When we physically die, we simply
get to experience HOW we
touched everyone's lives (in positive or negative ways) while we
find our way back
into the Light and Heart of God.
Enlightenment is the process of
bringing the Light of our Infinite Nature into our grounded
practical daily existence. It is opening up ourselves to
God, inviting in a continuous and profound state of
real bliss with everyone. This natural state spontaneously occurs
when we find 100% devotion to God. Enlightenment begins
when we start realizing that we are
always this Divine Pure Consciousness, that is already
enlightened, eternal, unlimited, and free from
To begin with something simple
today, just remain aware of your own consciousness, your
awareness for as long as you can. Try it for 24 hours.
If you can do this, you will naturally awaken very soon!
Be appreciative of what you have and don't have. Let yourself
joyfully connect with everyone around you. Smile at others, from
a place of love, devotion, and non-attachment to outcomes.
God-Source, Spirit, Divine Consciousness, Spiritual Essence (whatever you
call it) is what EVERYONE truly is. It is what YOU really are. Each of us consists of pure
light energy, consciousness, and a connection to divine
intelligence. This is the SOUL, and is what truly are.
spiritual exploration of our true nature is the only path that is truly
Nothing "out there" satisfies really. It all comes and
goes. Find out what is more fulfilling than to unveil and discover ones real
"Self". This re-discovering of the true you is an
experience of spiritual enlightenment. It is truly the
most freeing and empowering experience we can explore.
There is a spiritual path for each
individual on this planet. Each path is perfect, divine
and completely unique to each person. What helps us discover our
own spiritual path today is overcoming our personal fears,
belief in separation, limiting beliefs, as well as resistance and negativity. By releasing attachment
to ones Ego, we empower ourselves to overcome these barriers of
such great magnitude.
comes from over-identification with your
Ego. When you have become over-identified, you get
confused, thinking you are your name, your thoughts, feelings,
your body, or anything associated with the material world.
You forget that you are this divine infinite soul that will
never die. We are temporarily a part of the physical
world, yet in actuality we always exist on a realm that is
beyond the physical.
become an Avatar you get to turn UP the volume on your "Light". This Light is our
brilliance, our pizzazz, love, joy...our pure gusto for life! It is
our creativity, our ability to thrive instead of survive, and
to truly share this authentic place of joy with the world!
this joy we grow a little stronger and more feel
connected inside. Whenever we withhold our Light we
retract, contract, shrink up and die just a little. When we
