"The Fountain of Youth"
High Friends… Krishna Prem here… to remind you that one of the benefits of meditation is that you will remain eternally young… I look the same as I did when I met Osho 36 years ago. Here is proof positive:
"Maturity means gaining your lost innocence again, reclaiming your paradise, becoming a child again.
Maturity is a spiritual birth. You are born anew, you are a child again. With fresh eyes you start looking at existence. With love in the heart you approach life. With silence and innocence you penetrate your own innermost core. You are no more just the head. Now you use the head, but it is your servant. First you become the heart, and then you transcend even the heart... Going beyond thoughts and feelings and becoming a pure isness is maturity. Maturity is the ultimate flowering of meditation."
Plus through meditation, I now know that the only thing that is permanent is change.
"You have lost your manhood, you have bargained for security. You are secure and comfortable and everything has been planned by others. And they have put everything on the map, they have measured everything. This is all absolutely foolish because life cannot be measured, it is immeasurable. And no map is possible because life is in constant flux. Everything goes on changing. Nothing is permanent except change."
To prove to you how young I feel, check me out as Old Spice... this is a command performance by the legendary Spice Boys at the OSHO International Meditation Resort, Pune, India on the New Years' Eve Party. Simply click of the arrow below and watch me perform like a sex machine.
I also love being on the other side of the camera... here I am supporting Penelope Cruz who went on to win best supporting actress at the Academy Awards this year... congradulations Penelope.
One of the benefits of being a mature meditator is that I have learned that i am not my body... and even though i am not my body, I take care of my temple by eating right and exercising... and taking annual medical checkups.
What Buddha means is: the mind talks -- the mind is a part. And when he says the body knows, he means the WHOLE knows. Buddha always used the word 'body' for the whole; it is not the same as when YOU use the word 'body'. When you use the word 'body' it is a part; body, mind, soul, these are three parts in your mind, in your thought processes. This is how you have divided yourself. When Buddha says the body he means your wholeness: "This very body the Buddha, this very earth the Lotus Paradise." When he uses the word 'body' he means your wholeness, your totality. The mind talks, your totality knows.
Needless to say my last wife was not a meditator and died prematurely… I am about to marry for the umpteenth time and I insist that my new bride be an Osho lover and that if she doesn’t ‘maditate’ daily that this is immediate grounds for divorce.
Laughter is, Krishna Prem.
