Emahó – his teachings and the ceremony
What is extraordinary about Emahó is that you cannot categorize him or his teachings. He doesn’t represent any philosophy or any religion.
In his teachings, one does not find any kind of belief system.
“Know what you know and know that very well,
and know what you don’t know
and know that very well.”
There is a purity in Emahó’s words uncolored by beliefs, ideas or society’s conditioning. He educates almost as a good parent might educate, his objective being to convey an understanding. From his point of view, this “understanding” keeps the person stable as mind constructions such as “hope” and “love” come and go.
Emaho explains the predicament of the biological creature on the planet and the basic phenomena; gravity; growth and decay; cause and effect; contrast; the conditioning inherent in the nanoseconds of experience and the two big doors – “conception” and “death”. In doing so he does not use spiritual jargon preferring simple words uncolored by images or emotions. There is neutrality in his vocabulary.
When Emaho answers questions he answers according to the state of mind of that person asking the question, with the advice “not to nail the answers to the wall but let them expand and let them grow with time and reflection.” Nothing is fixed around Emaho, there is always movement and change, as a reflection of the movement and changes in life itself.
Emaho does not give out a technique and there are no steps to follow, no promises and no rewards. He does not replace old patterns with new patterns, old philosophies with new philosophies. What happens is something entirely different; through his teachings, he creates space in the crowded minds of people.
With the ceremony of the fire, dance Emaho goes beyond words showing effort and intention with the body. Suddenly everything becomes more personal because Emaho put this hands into the fire for each person dancing.
When he puts his hand in the fire and does not burn the laws of physics are broken and that is a teaching in itself, a door to something very different has opened.
