Krishna Prem

As Above, So Below

High, Krishna Prem here. I simply love looking at the sky to get an idea how to live on planet earth. Nature can be so warming.


“The ancient saying, ‘As above, so below,’ contains one of the most fundamental truths about mysticism. It means that there is no above, no below, that existence is one.

Divisions are created by the mind.

Existence is divisionless.” Osho

I remember way back when I was just a young bird… I never listened to anyone, I sang my own song… and when I built a nest in the wrong spot, I simply flew the coop… I never faked it… I just broke out, singing bye bye birdie at the top of my lungs.

“If you are getting more and more miserable, then you are on the trip of being an egomaniac. If you are becoming more and more tranquil, silent, happy, together, then you are on another trip -- the trip of self-love. If you are on the trip of ego you will become destructive to others -- because the ego tries to destroy the 'thou'. If you are moving towards self-love, the ego will disappear. And when the ego disappears, you allow the other to be himself or herself; you give total freedom. If you don't have any ego you cannot create an imprisonment for the other you love; you cannot create a cage. You allow the other to be an eagle in the high heavens. You allow the other to be himself or herself; you give total freedom. Love gives total freedom. Love IS freedom -- freedom for you and freedom for the object of your love. Ego is bondage -- bondage for you and bondage for your victim.

In fact, it is the sexual energy itself that transforms into your enlightenment.” Osho

I often feel like I am soaring like an eagle when I meditate…or maybe I am just dreaming…anyway I was flying high over head recently when I looked down on our blue planet when I spotted thousands of sheep… I got so excited my eyes began playing tricks on me…as I swooped down, the sheep turned out to be thousands of naked volunteers posing for U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick at Mexico City's Zocalo square, the heart of the ancient Aztec empire.

As an eagle, I was disappointed that mankind was acting like sheep, but as a man I got quite excited. Gravity whisked me towards the ground… when I was ten feet above the 1000 naked humans, I swore I spotted Marilyn Monroe and I proceeded to close my eyes as I came in for a crash landing. I felt like I was candle blowing in the wind. I made mad passionate meditation to Marilyn.

You can imagine my surprise when I rolled over and found out I am not an Einstein. . 

When you look at this picture up close it looks like it's Albert Einstein. But if you stand ten feet away, it will become Marilyn Monroe. Get off your computerized ass and see for yourself.

I made an innocent mistake. Thank heavens I was meditating, I mean dreaming.


“Remembering the self, the self will disappear. The more you remember, the more you will find it is not there.

Forgetting the self is the same. You are beyond yourself; don't cling to your "I", to your ego, to your personality. Just drop clinging to this cage, move out of the cage, and the whole sky is yours. Open your wings and fly across the sun like an eagle.

In the inner sky, in the inner world, freedom is the highest value -- everything else is secondary, even blissfulness, ecstasy. There are thousands of flowers, uncountable, but they all become possible in the climate of freedom.” Osho

I am not an Einstein, but I am tuned into nature and her little critters… and learning as much as possible from my friends.

Laughter is, Krishna Prem

Ps… An elephant asks a camel: "Why are your breasts on your back?"

"Well" says the camel, "I think that' s a strange question coming from somebody whose dick is on his face."
