The list above is made to order for Dolts or and adult. Who would trade the freedom and happiness of a Child for the prisons of an adult. Only a Dolt would do that.
When I was 8, after pondering this for over a year, I proclaimed to my Mother that I refused to become an adult and I would stay as Child forever. She thought it was cute but as an Indigo Mother to an Indigo Child she would not allow her adult ways to impede my destiny tractor beam.
Turned out I was right. All the convenience, money, sex, status, will over another, comforts and anxiety to go with it were not a fair trade to the freedom of exploration and lack of fear and judgement a child walks with.
At 10 to 11 I was fortunate to become a friend to Bawa Muhayadeen of Philadelphia PA and Jaffa, Ceylon who was sharing his life experiences since 1928 in Ceylon and since 1970 to his death in 1986 in Philadelphia.
I lived as a child and as a student of a real live prophet from 1971 to 1986 when his death occurred and ongoing since. The organization he left behind has adapted to the world and nationalism I am afraid but the experiences of Bawa Muhayadeen as told by him, live on.
He was found walking the jungles of Sri Lanka in 1928 and completely satisfied with his position later telling his listeners that he had a grand relationship of mutual respect and admiration for all the creatures and animals of the forest including elephants and tigers.
Eventually rich white people new agers of the western culture made their way around the world looking for deeper answers to their questions. My father was one of those people and one of the founders of fellowships throughout the western world but first stop was his town, Philadelphia.
Had first meeting with Guru Bawa (the title we called him then – means teacher-teacher) in 1971, Bawa never gave his name or mentioned if he had one. The names we gave him, we gave him. Here is a link to the fellowship hq in Philadelphia to reach all Bawa’s works and podcasts: https://bmf.org/
