"Come fly with me" #39
"Remember, only that which you can take with you when you leave the body is important. That means, except meditation, nothing is important. Except awareness, nothing is important, because only awareness cannot be taken away by death. Everything else will be snatched away, because everything else comes from without.
Only awareness wells up within. That cannot be taken away. And the shadows of awareness - compassion, love - they cannot be taken away. They are intrinsic parts of awareness. You will be taking with you only whatsoever awareness you have attained. That is your only real wealth." Osho
I just returned to India and I was received warmly… and it is a delightful temperature at present… yes it is true that Mumbai is recovering from her 9/11, but already the resiliency of the Indian community is quite heart felt and life is returning to its normal chaotic state. Just before I left America for India, I saw a great quote on an art poster… it read… 'I'm tired of concepts, I want to touch somebody'… so yes I love sending you my newsletter, but even more, I look forward to hugging you one fine day in the Osho International Meditation Resort… you are always welcome here.
My very own personal understanding of life is that we need to clean up the basement of our existence through therapy… and at the same we need to clean up our attic through meditation… and that once we are have both roots and wings, we can relax in our living rooms… and enjoy.
It remains a mystery to share meditation in words… so let me enlighten you on how therapy groups have cleaned up my act.
In the tantra group all of my dreams came true.
In the Gurdjieff Dance Class, I found out just how intelligent my right foot is… a very grounding experience.
How Smart Is Your Right Foot ?
Just try this.............. This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your right foot, but you can't.
1. While sitting where you are, at your desk, in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!
I told you so!!!! And there's nothing you can do about it. You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done, you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.
In the hypnosis for meditation training, I was able to talk to my unconscious and break the Da Vinci Code.
DA VINCI CODE
Written across the wall of the cave were the following symbols:
It was considered a unique find and the writings were said to be at least three thousand years old!
The piece of stone was removed, brought to the meditation resort, and seekers from around the world came to study the ancient symbols. We spent the entire day discussing the meaning of the markings.
After a guided meditation, the group leader pointed to first drawing and said: "This is a woman. We can see these people held women in high esteem. You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol is a donkey, so they were smart enough to have animals to help them till the soil.
The next drawing is a shovel, which means they had tools to help them."
Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish which means that if a famine hit the earth and food didn't grow, they would seek food from the sea. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews.
The entire group applauded enthusiastically.
Then this little old Jewish boy, Krishna Prem, stood up in the back of the group room and said, "Idiots, Hebrew is read from right to left......
It says: 'Holy Mackerel, Dig The Ass On That Chick!
In the Inner Man, Inner Woman group, I finally got in touch with my inner man.
So I hope you are saving your pennies to visit the Osho International Meditation Resort real soon.
"I know that you are consciousness itself, not the conscious being. Consciousness is not a quality attached to you, you are consciousness. You are totally free. So proceed from anywhere. Either be more free or be more conscious, and the other will result automatically. Be more free, and you will be more conscious. You cannot be more free unless you are more conscious. Be more conscious and you will be more free. You cannot be otherwise, because consciousness creates freedom. And when you are absolutely conscious, you are absolutely free. Then there is no cause and no purpose for you to exist. Then everything is a happening, a leela." Osho
If I have not convinced you to fly off to India, allow me to suggest you take my annual stress test as a last resort.
Read the full description before looking at the picture.
The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it.
It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital, London.
Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water.
The dolphins are identical.
A closely monitored scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins.
The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.
Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you need to go a meditation on holiday.
And if you still don't believe me, check out my new friend Matt below by pushing his button and watch this boy celebrate.
There simply is no easier way to dance then to come fly away to our meditation resort. Love is, Krishna Prem
