Wisdom teacher, mystic, inner scientist
OM is a human being who traveled the way, a wise man who knows the paths and dead ends, a spiritual master. He teaches us to discover and listen to the inner teacher, and accompanies our steps on the way to ourselves. He imparts his knowledge of the absolute in conversations about Being (darshan), through Inner Work and as an author of lectures.
“Simply see with open eyes and open mind. Without hanging on to anything, by looking through into the depth of yourself. The realization of man can be found only in the act of being human itself - being human while being aware of the eternity of Being.”
OM C. Parkin
What is a spiritual teacher, and what makes him wise? How can he help me in my search and why can I confide in him?
Wisdom is a central term in the teaching of the eternal philosophy. It is a random product of the ego: the ego dies, wisdom stays. The wisdom teacher teaches the eternal philosophy to the seeker through direct experience. Wisdom teachers of all traditions point to the inner gate. A spiritual master knows this gate, because he has crossed it himself. He knows the paths that lead to and through the gate. He knows the tests on the way, the dead ends and possible aberrations. He knows the bliss of Being, because he once reached it. And experiences it anew every moment. He has realized it in himself and accompanies the student on his way.
OM embodies in his work the link between Eastern non-duality and Christian mysticism, of depth psychology and philosophy, beyond the limits of religions and confessions. In the course of this, he often refers to the tradition of advaita, which has been revived in the 20th century by Shri Ramana Maharshi, Shri H.W.L. Poonja, the American Gangaji and others (neo advaita). OM acts in the tradition of these teachers and by rooted in early Christian teaching. His work in the tradition of silence can be described by three functions: teacher (of wisdom), healer (of the soul), seer (of the heart).
