» Transformations - Jon Bernie- ''Ordinary Freedom' - Interview by Iain McNay
Author of 'Ordinary Freedom' and 'The Unbelievable Happiness Of What Is.' When he was 4 years old Jon looking up at the stars and asked "what is going on here? Where are we? What is this?" At 6 he started to learn the violin and practiced 2 to 4 hours a day. At 16 he decided to sit in a chair indefinitely to see if he could find what he was looking for. 'Suddenly there was no more room, and there was no more me. It was like I had merged into the sun - like I had become the sun. It was like a kind of universal orgasm, as if every cell in my body had had its own nuclear explosion.' Later he became a monk meditating for 8 hours a day. After leaving the monastery he met Jean Klein who he describes as his 'root guru.' He also spent time with Robert Adams and Adyashanti. 'There was a deep letting go that I realized I had been waiting for a long, long time, and now here it was. In the past there had always been some remaining fear that kept me from fully letting go, but now it was time, and finally I just let it happen - was like a complete annihilation - would later refer to this experience as the end of fear.'
