For one hour each day, disappear from the world into your being let nothing penetrate - no memory, no thought, no imagination, be content in your consciousness, and it will rejuvenate you and refresh you. It will release new sources of energy in you and you will be back in the world, younger, fresher, more able to learn, with more wonder in your eyes, with more love in your heart - again a child.
Osho - Bhagavan Sri Rajneesh.
Be playful about it. Just enjoy sitting silently. Be relaxed, and a change will naturally occur, a radical transformation - the small things of life start having new meaning, new significance. Everything starts taking on a new aura. One feels a sense of godliness everywhere. Rejoice in life - dance, sing, laugh your way to God!
Whenever you have two alternatives, choose the new one, the harder, the one in which more awareness will be needed. You are here to become more and more happy, ecstatically happy!
Whatever you do, do it with deep awareness, alertness, then even small things become sacred. Cooking or cleaning become sacred, they become worship. It is not what you do, but how you do it. You can clean the floor like a robot, mechanically, you have to clean it, so you clean it. Then you miss something beautiful. Then you waste those moments in only cleaning the floor. Cleaning the floor could have been a great experience, you missed it. If you were aware, not only the floor but you too would have felt a deep cleansing. Clean the floor full of awareness, luminous with awareness. Make more and more moments of your life luminous with awareness. Working, sitting, walking, let the candle of awareness burn in each moment, in each act. The cumulative effect is what enlightenment is.
Meditation is not an achievement - it is already the case - it has only to be recognised, to be remembered. It is there waiting for everybody - just a turning in, a tuning in, and it is there, as always, eternally available. Meditation is your intrinsic nature, your being. It happens spontaneously by remaining unoccupied. Then it will flower. Non-doing is a way of moving in.
When you move inwards you will come to the light without any source. You are that light, that pure clarity. Watch your mind. Observe. As you watch, slowly, slowly, mind becomes empty of thoughts, you are not falling asleep; you become more and more aware, more alert. As the mind becomes completely empty, your whole energy becomes a flame of awakening. Just be watching, observing, without judgement or evaluation, you immediately get out of the mind.
When the mind is not functioning, you have the witnessing, then you have the awareness. Mind is thoughts, Self is silence. Meditation is joining together with existence, then there is joy, freedom, and bliss. The happiness is eternal, the celebration eternal. It is the light of awareness that makes things precious, extraordinary. Meditation means relaxing in the moment, in the present. It is to stop time and mind and to rise up in eternity. Just be, and watch. You can move your hand or wash the floor unconsciously, or you do these same actions with full awareness. Unconsciously, it is mechanical, with consciousness there is grace. Meditation is a state of clarity, not a state of mind where thoughts disappear, when you are in simple beingness clarity happens. Then you can see far away, to the very end of existence, to the very core of being.
Meditation transforms, it takes you to higher levels of consciousness and changes your lifestyle. It is a state of being. You just simply be, not doing anything at all. Joy is our innermost core. The whole existence is made of stuff called joy. Rest and relaxation. Do only the essential and devote your energies more and more to the inner journey. Remain at rest and in action together - the meeting of the sacred and mundane - in the 'normal waking consciousness.'
A person who meditates is full of energy, at the maximum, optimum. He lives at the peak. He has warmth, but not feverish. He is not hot, he is cool, because he's not carried away by desires. He is so happy, that he is no longer seeking any happiness. He is not running, not chasing, he is very cool.
Usually, the mind is the master, and we are it's slave. Meditation makes us the master and the mind becomes the slave. As such, it is tremendously useful, significant. Our consciousness should be master and the mind an instrument. The more aware you become, the slower the mind becomes, then you can see the gaps.
Meditation is focusing on the gap.
Life is sheer joy, a playfulness, a laughter, a meditation...
...a relaxation, a celebration!
C'est Leela - Life is Divine Play.
The Whole world is but a stage and we are but actors upon it...play on!
