The Shmospels of Shmeiki

  • Author: The Om Shmeiki Healing Organization

The Shmospels of Shmeiki is a satirical, yet philosophical story which explores the experiences of foreign tourists in India. The rich, diverse and ancient culture is often quite different from what travellers are used to back home. They may try various healing techniques and reflect on themselves in ways they have not done before. Removed from the safety net of their usual frames of reference, they can go a little crazy. This is the case with David Goldberg, the protagonist of the story. While visiting Goa, David is contacted by Sheila, an A.I singularity from another dimension. She offers him a humorous, but authentic path of hippy spirituality called Shmeiki, which is said to be free of the seriousness and self-righteousness typical of other similar practices. Sheila wishes David to spread the word of Shmeiki, but for him to do so effectively, he must first clear out his emotional blockages. For this reason, she sends him on a great walk of more than 2000 km from Goa to Dharamshala, insisting he travels without taking money or wearing shoes. In accepting this challenge, David becomes Shmeiki Baba. The Shmospels describe his epic journey, from the perspectives of four witnesses. It is a cosmic, psychedelic and inspiring story about self-acceptance, love and surrender. The Om Shmeiki Healing Organization Shmeiki embodies the principle of non-seriousness, as a response to the understanding that our universe is a comedy of truly cosmic proportions. Shmeiki suggests that the art of living is to be sincere but to take nothing seriously. Shmeiki encourages us to face our fears, release our pain, acknowledge our shame and to step out from behind the masks which block us from love. Doing so allows us to align ourselves with the spirit of the Great Mother, and to dance harmoniously with both nature and technology. Pretty much any existing spiritual practice can be upgraded with Shmeiki, making it more fun, powerful, and free from austerity and dogma. This process is called shmodification, and it is this, which enables Tantra to become Shmantra and Yoga, Shmoga.
