I finally “enlightened up” under the “bodytree” on a full moon night in Osho Teerth Park.
I spent the entire night in a full lotus position, meditating on all the women I loved this lifetime… one after another, my “gopis” appeared naked in my third eye… I thanked each one and as I namasted each and every one of them, they each individually disappeared in the very same moment… when the sun arose, I was sitting alone, but not lonely for the first time in my adult life.
Even in love, when you think you are together, you are not together. There are two alonenesses. In real love nothing is lost. When two lovers are sitting -- if they are really lovers and they don't try to possess each other and they don't try to dominate each other, because that is not love; that is the way of hatred, the way of violence -- if they love and if the love is coming out of their aloneness, you will see two beautiful alonenesses together. They are like two Himalayan peaks, high in the sky, but separate. They don't interfere. In fact deep love only reveals your pure aloneness to you...
This meditation came about after I thought I had finally met the woman of my dreams at a Plaza Dance Party.
Our eyes met, we danced the night away… we ended up at her riverside flat.
I had that soul mate feeling in my heart… could this finally be the one… she said she felt the same way… as we looked into each other’s eyes, we felt our two hearts beating as one. This is it.
After a long night of making love, I noticed a photo of another man on her night stand by the bed. I began to worry.
“Is this your husband?" I nervously asked.
“No, silly," she replied, snuggling up to me.
“Your boyfriend, then?" I continued.
"No, not at all," she says, nibbling away at my ear.
"Is it your dad or your brother?" I inquired, hoping to be reassured.
“No, no, no!!!" she answered.
"Well, who in the hell is he, then?" I demanded.
"That's me before the surgery."
P.S. This is AMAZING! Until now I never fully understood how to tell the difference between male and female birds. I always thought it had to be determined surgically... until now.
Below are two birds. Study them closely... See if you can spot which of the two is the female. It can be done. Even by one with limited bird watching skills.
Take hold of your own life. See that the whole existence is celebrating. These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious. The rivers and the oceans are wild, and everywhere there is fun, everywhere there is joy and delight. Watch existence, listen to the existence and become part of it. Then you become a lover -- because love can exist only with a deep respect for fun, with a deep respect for delight. Love cannot exist with a serious mind. With a serious mind, logic is in tune. Be non-serious. I'm not saying not to be sincere. Be sincere, but be non-serious. Sincerity is something else; seriousness is totally different. Be sincere with existence, then you will be true; you will become part of this cosmic LEELA, this cosmic play.
