“Just look at people. And each person is a fiction, and each person carries so many stories in his heart. Love people, search in their souls, and you will not need to go to the movies and you will not need to read novels. Each person contains many novels and many movies, but we don’t listen to people. We don’t see people face to face, we don’t hold their hands, we don’t allow them to open their hearts.

For the first time humanity has become very closed. Each person is living a windowless life, completely encapsulated. Open up, throw your doors and windows open. Let wind and rain and sun come in. Let people enter into you and you enter into people’s lives. That is the only way to become aware of the tremendous mystery of life. And to be aware of the mystery of life is to be aware of godliness.” ~ Osho

The fool sleeps as if he were already dead, but the master is awake and he lives forever ~ Buddha

Wakefulness is a way of life, says Buddha. Become more wakeful and you will become more alive. And life is God – there is no other God. Hence Buddha talks about life and awareness. Life is the goal and awareness is the methodology, the technique to attain it.

The fool sleeps….

And all are asleep, so all are foolish. Don’t feel offended. The facts have to be stated as they are. You are not alert. You can’t see, you can’t hear-certainly you have ears so you can hear, but there is nobody inside to understand it. Certainly you have eyes so you can see, but there is nobody present inside. So your eyes go on seeing and your ears go on listening, but nothing is understood.

Beyond the real conscious mind is the superconscious mind. When you are meditating, you have only glimpses. Meditation is a groping in the dark. Yes, a few windows open up, but you fall back again and again. Superconscious mind means samadhi – you have attained a crystal-clear perceptiveness, you have attained awareness. Now you cannot fall below it; it is yours. Even in sleep it will remain with you.

These are the nine states of your being. And you are just living in a small corner of your being-the tiny conscious mind. It is as if somebody has a palace and has completely forgotten about the palace and has started living on the porch – and thinks this is all.

The fool sleeps as if he were already dead, but the master is awake and he lives forever. He watches. He is clear. Simple and beautiful statments. Truth is always simple and beautiful. Just see the simplicity of these two statements… but how much they contain. Worlds within worlds, infinite worlds – He watches. He is clear.

The only thing that has to be learned is watchfulness. Watch! Watch every act you do. Watch every thought that passes in your mind. Watch every desire that takes possession of you. Watch even small gestures – walking, talking, eating, taking a bath. Go on watching everything. Let everything become an opportunity to watch.

From the book; Awareness. The key to living in balance of Osho

You are entitled to miracles — but grow up, wake up!

Man is born only as a potential. If you don’t develop your potential, if you don’t grow spiritually, you are just like an ox. The body will go on becoming bigger and bigger, but that is not growth. Growing old is not growing up, growing physically is not growing spiritually. And unless you grow spiritually you are wasting a precious opportunity.

Man is the only being on the earth who can attain to buddhahood. Elephants and lions and tigers can’t become buddhas. Only man can become a buddha, only man can become a thousand-petaled lotus, only man can release the fragrance called God.

Don’t waste a single moment in anything else. Do the necessary things, the essential things, but pour more and more energy into watchfulness, awareness.

Wake up! Unless you become a buddha you have not lived at all, because you will not know the great poetry of life, the great music of existence. You will not know the celestial celebration that goes on and on, you will not know the dance of the stars. It is for you to become part of this celebration. This bliss is for you! All these flowers and all these songs and all these stars are for you. You are entitled to miracles — but grow up, wake up!

Osho,“Dhammapada Vol 5″

ABC Of Enlightenment : EGO

“Ego is the drug, the intoxicant that makes you completely unconscious. You act but the act comes from the unconscious, not from your consciousness. And whenever any act comes from the unconscious, the door of hell is open. Whatsoever you do, if you are not aware of what you are doing the gate of hell opens”  ~ Osho

Path Of Awareness

The term for awareness in Tibetan means “the knowledge that realizes egolessness through awareness.” The path is as narrow as the edge of a razor blade. The path is so easy that it feels like the most difficult path you can imagine. It is the human brain and the ego which complicate it all, and we have to be mindless to understand it. Mindless through meditation, mindless like being in the moment. No past, no future, only right here, right now. ~ GC Himani
