About Me

Odilia Carmen
Music Faculty Graduation `2007
Music Faculty `2007
Studied music because  due to my inherent talent I was told I must be a singer, (...and because of my mother`s ardent desire that I would be a "diva") even though I strongly felt there is more to life than simply being a singer.  I realized, on the way, it was part of my path and my` process of understanding.
Law Faculty Graduation `2009
Law Faculty  `2009
Studied law in support of a friend, driven by my belief (and my Grand Ego at the time) that concurrent studies were a walk in the park for me (...and to make my father proud with an extra degree). Found it to be a pile of rules in the hands of those devoid of morality, compassion and honesty. It has brought me extra insights in my journey towards truth.

Was invited to step further on the academic ladder, in both fields, by various teachers, who praised and believed in my capacities. However, I realised I was not actually interested in the affairs of the world or being part of an artificial system.

My pursue was Ultimate Truth. In an attempt to understand our nature and our purpose in life. The end and the beginning of everything. I have followed the traces of the masters and the mystics of the old and new and was graced with insight into the Great Mysteries by The Master Himself! The Great Spirit! And so I have become a mystic myself! My deepest joy comes from being a gate and an embodiment of Truth!

Guiding and inspiring people into the art of singing and holistic living, creating and collaborating on music projects, being one with nature through gardening, caring for animals and sharing presence with all beings, writing, reading, contemplating, expanding the horizons of knowledge, exploring creative expressions of all kinds and keeping the joy of living "alive" is what fills my days. 

Developing new skills, increasing practical intelligence, cultural exchange, self-mastery, understanding core philosophies of ancient civilisations and major thinkers of our world, martial arts, sustainable living, permaculture, herbology, creative crafts, holistic perfumery, psychosomatic medicine, wholeness, truth, awareness, evolution, enlightenment... are the things that interest me. 

As a woman, I am fond of beauty, artistry, style, artistic jewellery and clothing, fragrances, gemstones, feathers... mundane glitters that is. Through which I express myself but which do not define me. At the end, in the world but not of it. In a form yet formless.

...in truth, OdiliaCarmen, Gate To The Gateless

"The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding."
Tao Te Ching Verse I
