…through my connections on Facebook, I learned about an old friend who was dieing of cancer here in Mexico…I had heard this news first hand from an American friend who was passing through here last Summer. We both know him and are connected through our disciplehood with one of the most honery Sat Gurus to pass through this Life in a long time. Here in Mexico, it seems, that things are always in flux…there is an air of uncertainty that pervades this vast and quite wonderful land. My friend with cancer was born here and lived down in Mexico City, I believe. I have not seen him for twenty years or so…but we had connected through Facebook. The other night I heard that he had died…I was awakened around one or two in the morning by our barking dogs. I could not get back to sleep so I went on the computer. I read that my Mexican friend had passed away as I perused Facebook. Despite the time in between since our last meeting in India…i still felt the deep connection many of us share that spent time with Osho/Bhagwan (the Sat Guru)…a light rain began to fall outside which is very unusual for this time of year…I felt that my old drumming friend named Rupesh (the Mexican with the cancer) had something to do with it….It felt quite blissful and tender. The next morning…on Facebook…..I learned that he had not died afterall…this is the Mexican Connection…nothing is as it seems here in this magical country…good and bad mix and mingle with beauty, danger, despair, rapture, godliness and terror….you hear one thing and it may mean something entirely else…I know this may sound confusing…it is…however, what I have learned is: this continuing mystical Path of Paradox that I find myself on…leading from India to where I find myself today…..in Mexico…Bhagwan told me that I was entering the Tao…the tip top tongue taste of Tao where there was no beginning and no end…just the Tao…as far as i know…my friend is still alive in the hospital…his situation triggered that deep connection that I was exposed to in India one a humid night back in the seventies when Bhagwan touched me on the forehead and the Universe entered into my consciousness and Existence began to reveal itself in a newly opened heart…my heart. I bow down to Rupesh, Osho/Bhagwan, Mexico, India and all the other occurances that have touched my heart on this most mysterious Path…Gracias por todo!
