My name is Wayne Wirs, which rhymes with "ears" (because I knew you were wondering). I live in a van and travel full-time around the U.S.A., writing and blogging and taking photographs. If they had sadhus in American (the wandering holy men of India), then I'd be one. But they don't. So I just wander.
In 2009, high up on Mt. Hood in Oregon, I challenged a frog to a meditation contest. After two hours, I lost the contest but I awoke to enlightenment. Thirty years of meditating and all it took was a cold-blooded amphibian to wake me up. Still (and this is a secret, but enlightenment doesn't play very well with the "real" world), I decided not to publish anything definitive on the subject until I had it all worked out.
I have a saying, "The smart have their theories, but the wise have their scars."
Seven years and many scars later, I've finally published my opus—everything I know about spiritual awakening and how you too can wake up. It's called "Mystical Oneness and the Nine Aspects of Being." It's a step-by-step guide to enlightenment, and the mysterious realms beyond.
Because I'm a firm believer in transparency, I keep an online diary of my thoughts and travels and photography. If you are interested, it can be found at… my name dot com. Hope to see you there.
