The secret of meditating successfully! ☺

FB_IMG_1425420144892

Lots of us believe that meditation needs lots of effort on our parts. We keep on struggling to cease our ceaseless mind so that, in the end, we lose the very essense of meditation itself : stillness and serenity.

It’s known to everybody that our only rival when meditating is the mind. Neither the uncomfortable sofa, neither the street noise, nor whatever outside ourselves. Even if we haven’t been aware of this mere fact though…wake up! hello!!! Yeap, it is the mind!

Hello!!! Yeap, we can’t just press the brake and stop its long vehicle. Scratch…scratch..😕What can we do, then???

It’s simple : we only have to take Osho’s words into account! We can just watch the mind. Watch its restlessness. Until it has nothing else to do than hush!

 Don’t get frustrated, don’t get angry with yourself, don’t critisize your thoughts. We simply watch our thoughts! In this way, we automatically set ourselves into present.

“The moment you realize that you aren’t present, you are present”, says Eckhart Tolle in his book “The Power Of Now”.

The present moment is the powerful opponnent of the mind. When we concetrate into the very moment we breathe, we leave the mind no space for mourning, retrieving or incriminating past actions. We neither let it go forward and interfere with fearfulness, disappointment or agitation. Thus, by mere watching, we go beyond   “pychological time” (according to Tolle) and, thus, the mind is “forced” to stand still. We set free from the tyrant at last!!!

“Meditation is a surrender…It is a let-go.” Osho

……………………………………………………………………………………………………

Osho      Chandra Mohan Jain (11 December 1931 –  January 1990), also known as Acharya Rajneesh from the 1960s onwards, as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh  during the 1970s and 1980s, and as Osho  from 1989, was an Indian mysticguru and spiritual teacher.

A professor of philosophy, he travelled throughout India during the 1960s as a public speaker. His outspoken criticism of politicians and the political mind, Mahatma Gandhi and institutionalised religion made him controversial. 

In 1970 Rajneesh settled for a time in Bombay and in 1974 he moved to Pune. There  he established an ashram which attracted, and still attracts, a lot  of Westerners.

In mid-1981, Rajneesh relocated to the United States, where his followers established an intentional community (later known as Rajneeshpuram) in Oregon. Because of some serious economic and other crimes commited by the commune’s leadership and his followers, Osho was finally deported fron the USA in 1985.

He died in Pune in 1990.

Osho’s  syncretic teachings emphasise the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration, courage, creativity and humour: qualities which he viewed as suppressed by adherence to static belief systems, religious tradition and socialization.

There fave been released over 600 books plus several thousand audio and video discourses with his teachings.
