My meaning of Lao Tzu’s open all the knots. Basis Osho.

While Lao Tzu’s advice is to open all the knots. Knitting of two senses can be explained similar to enjoying food only for its taste instead of enjoying the food in totality with its  taste. Opening the knots means doing whatever you do with totality, not perfection. Like whatever you eat enjoy it to its fullest as if whole existence is poured in it- actually it is so, be it just a sip of water.

Enjoying sex in mind is knitting mind and body sense together. Opening of knot means bringing totality fully in every act of it and enjoying it to fullest then and there only (period), it should not even leave a glimpse in whole day. Knitting of beauty being enjoyed through eyes with mind, just a simple expression that what you are seeing is beautiful is involving the mind. The mind keeps the scene or beauty unexplored by senses fully and the sense then remains busy fullest alive for whole day due to knitting with mind!

Every moment the whole existence itself is made available to you in the space –  form you encounter  or with others each moment. Because our focus gets shifted to only one of its quality only or few of its qualities due to our experiences in our memory or mind, we just miss the whole existence that can be experienced by no-mind state only and we have gone astray to form a knot.
Now a days it seems we are busy in inventing newer forms of knots. It is good till we realise that everything that is available, is a form of existence itself. Knowing the knot is also good because then we just need to learn how to open them and whole puzzle called human life is solved in a moment and you come home.

Then we need not have to throw that we have caught tight hold of i.e. life but it will fall
automatically like a stone falls from the hands of a child when he comes to know about real Diamond, and the realisation that, what he is holding is just a stone, is enough.
It is in line with a book on talks given by Osho titled “From Sex to Super-consciousness”. His message needs to be understand very clearly. His focus was on full body experience during orgasm by both partner at the same time, which leads to first experience of no-mind or selflessness for a fraction of second i.e. Tantra.

Many persons experience it locally, hence keep yearning for more and more because of lack of real experience and keep searching it through eyes or other senses all through the day. That is mixing or knitting mind with senses. His message was clear that by failing in all the possible ways one day it may happen that you experience it the way it should be, then knot will open itself.

He described celibacy as trying to open the knot by force, then the opposite may happens  and one needs to hide it by artificial means, but after age of 60 when body becomes weak the suppression erupts and sometimes may go beyond control. Then trying the right method also very difficult and chances of getting successful with right result is also less. It is best to experience it before the age of 50, as Osho advised.

In my opinion, same is true for other fusions being tried now a days, the sooner one begins the better and focus must be to choose first what one enjoys while involved in it and learning happens automatically by dropping the negative attributes.

New knots are fusion/knitting of Art and Craft for Decision making, Fusion/knitting of Yoga for Health and wellness, fusion/knitting of mindfulness training for stress reduction or personality development etc etc.

They are good individually and with fusion its expected result can swing in either direction too, if suppression of natural talent is advised instead of enjoying and learning the new.

In my opinion, same is true for other fusions being tried now a days, the sooner one begins the better and focus must be to choose first what one enjoys while involved in it and learning happens automatically by dropping the negative attributes.

One can keep trying in his own way also consistently and persistently. One may succeed in very first attempt. Even if you succeed even in 20 – 30 years of time for first glimpse, your real personal journey called human life begins, in right direction for discovering “Self” or Self-realisation or Atma or Consciousness. All these yearning for Post, Power, Politics etc. is due to not experiencing it. Even then it is worth enjoying the journey.
“Being Human” from human being, and as a by-product one will automatically drop all negative attributes once Diamond i.e. self is seen or experienced.

What we are doing?

To be born as a human being is greatest gift, as God chose to manifest in this form at present. All around us and everything around us is his manifestation at present in different forms. Can we be given birth by ourselves? Can we die naturally as per our wish? Same is with everything around us, we are just changing form of available natural resources or arranging things in a particular order and taking its credit as its Owner, Discoverer etc etc.

This is the beginning of rise of ego in human being. Once we understand its cause, then we can get rid of it, as it is the very cause of misery in our life. This existence is wast and infinite and that too expanding every second. How a person can bring any change? It is its nature to keep changeping, we are just like a pen, we used to write, of God through whom he is giving colours in life at present. Or we are just a puppet or we are just like an actor, at present, in a film through whom the greatest director is directing its drama of the eternal world. As soon as our role is over, we will be called again to its backstage. This entering, rise of ego in adolecent age. And leaving the stage happens as soon as we realise that it is just a role, as actor, that we are playing and we are not contributor etc etc, then in that moment the ego vanishes with it vanishes fear of death because fear of death belongs to ego only. Or with life and death, if not understood the nature of ego in this life but then fear of death persists till death. Just by understanding it, you are away from it. Then there is no death as such of yourself. Just leaving this world like leaving the stage and going to backstage to prepare for another role. Then even your head is cut, you can see it falling.

When we believe ourself as our ego, and keep nurturing it too, then actually we are decieving our ‘self’ or God. It is strange that we have firmer belief on animals and nature than ourselves!

People in some part of India, when hear a dog crying, they can predict that someone nearby it is about to die because they believe that a dog cannot be decieved of. There are so many such belief that most of the people, who belong to a society or country, trust as true.

Using this story it can be understood easily,

A new person in a city/country was travelling from a railway station, in a horse driven cart,  to his friend’s house, to whom he came to meet for first time since he moved here.

There was a bee contineously making round around the head of the Horse, ans sometimes around the head of the passenger.

The passenger got annoyed with this strange behaviour of the bee. So he asked the coah driver whether he can recognise this bee or not? He replied that the bee is called as Horsebee and it makes round around the head of any horse or any of the species similr to Horse like Donkey, Zebra etc.

Surprised by the answer he asked the coach driver, challanging him about his belief, about himself “Whether i am like an Horse? The coach driver replied in negative. Then he asked “Whether i am looking like a Zebra? Agin the reply was in negative.

Felling confident about his perceptin and proving wrong the belief of the other, he asked the coach driver again, “It means i am a donkey? The coah driver, by bringing to halt the cart, glanced him top to bottom, and said “No, not at all, but sir you cannot decieve a Horsebee.”

By not getting involved in a little effort daily so as to realise our ‘self’ or dropping our ego, what we are doing is far greater sin, is by deceiving ourselves or God.

There are many ways suggested by sages of different time and places to drop this ego. Osho gave 112 types of meditation and then there is a general type applicable to all acts. It is about bringing totality, i e getting involved totally in each part of any one activity, initially, and not thinking anything about past or future or reward etc in those moments of activity. After sometime this habit will automatically spread itself to each of your activity.

It may be making love, as Osho suggested, it is the first experience of egolessness by two persons at perticular moment after attaining puberty.

A person can attaing same experience alone, in any activity through witnessing awareness. This is knowing or realising your ‘self’. Transformation happens immediately. As soon as it happens by seeing, fear of death falls just like a burning matchstick falls from your hands on reaching tip of your fingers holding it. Have faith in your religion first of all. Understand it with totality and be true to yourself.

How global business should be managed?

How global business should be managed? Lao Tzu in his book Tao te ching, chapter 60, said “Rule a big country as you would fry a small fish…”.

When a small fish is fried then a little less heat and part of it will remain unfird, a little more heat and it is burned. What is true about ruling a big country is true for a big multinational company too. It is true for a human being as well.

Before describing or commenting on this line Osho described at length that life is about discovering or developing a rythem from all the available opposite notes in life. Everyone is bestowed with anger and love, hate and compassion, sex and celibacy, truth and lie, voilence and non voilence, yin and yang.

A good ruler does not discard the bad against the good, but synthesizes them, by removing the tension between them, into a rythem. It is not about suppressing one against the other but a balance, like a poet creates in his poetry from normal looking words.

Now a days all internet based global companies are focussing on customer satisfaction. I think this is the reason. Amazon is even utilising expertise of a costomer for its benefit by asking them to answer the question raised by another customer!

Who knows that even an unsatisfied customer with recent purchase can answer positively about a product he has purchased earlier. This is creating a rythem from available notes that opposite in nature.

when such situation can be attained in day to day life, then Lao Tzu says is good for your soul and Osho described it at length.

Wordpress for wordless.

There are some sages or mystics like Raman Maharshi and Lao Tzu who preferred not to write much and kept their messages in concise form that too by flagging about it as untrue since truth cannot be spoken by word. Wordless expression is the truest expression of their experience. It reached to the person capable enough of catching it and learning from it. In Buddha’s line there are followers of “Heenyan”, mostly in Shri Lanka, who chose this mode of transformation. Transformation by being present and the wordless got communicated to the right receiver.

Becoming a right receiver is a must for learning, whether communication is through word or wordless. A right receiver can be defined as a person who has accepted his body, his all past deeds, his past qualifications, his post or position in society etc as a prerequisite and dumped them in a well and become an empty vessel. This may come due to total surrender automatically. Any questioning in mind or assertion in mind, like conformity/rejection with any scriptures one has studied previously etc, during transfer will hamper the process of transfer of wisdom to the receiver.

There are some sages or mystics who preferred to speak instead or remaining silent. They spoke to arise curiosity among those who are on edge. They answered the questions to teach “How to generate your own answers?” through their approach to answering. Whenever a person chooses words to express wordless then this caution of informing all, who may be listening or reading it, always precedes.

If a person merely sticks to the words expressed here and take it as a truth he may get opposite results. Since it is truth for speaker or writer but it is not his own discovered one. Only own discovered truth, answers are really right truth or right answers because they are expressed without words by existence itself.

This effort of analysing, highlighting, describing works of Osho uses words to express it. So a cautionary intimation is a must that it is not your truth and it is just pointing to some truth for Osho expressed by Osho in his own words for his disciples’ help in search of theirs own. It is a science of experimenting but with limitation that it cannot be transferred only a situation can be created since it is specific for each individual being too. Whenever one begins the gain is same for all irrespective of how much time one devote for it. No one is alone in this research as it is considered that all the past sages and even God is there to support you in this journey or research whatever name may be given to it.

One may draw an inspiration, direction from them and embark upon own journey to attain his/her own truth or answers. Only such own truth is called knowing and it is said that this is the asset that never diminishes by spending or sharing. It is carried forward to another birth i.e. Shubh Laabh or eternal gain. It is this asset which can be acquired by human beings only. It is with this responsibility every human being is given birth by God i.e. with this hope.

Reading and listening helps in opening of mind or develops our understanding. This is the only way by which one reaches to a level of understanding that may lead to the experience that can only happen. Then it is said that the journey begins.

An existential drama played through Osho as hero.

Existence has infinite ways of expressing itself. This planet was, is and will never remain voided by its presence in the form of human being.  Whenever a manifested form of existence realises that he is playing a drama in real life he/she becomes hero/heroine of that story. Here only the main character of drama knows that it is a play and act as if living life of a real human being.

In Hindi ‘Leela’ means a play or drama. Osholeela means the drama played by the existence in which Osho was main hero and only he knows that a role is being played as if it is a real life.

Inverted Mind

Every time we try for peace of mind and all the methods give only temporary relief. Mind gets adjusted with it and again it begins its work to disturb the peace.

While learning from teachings of Buddha, Lao Tzu and their unique mix Zen, the thought of “why at all the God has given us mind?”, And as all other creatures and nature is always in happy mood, “Why we are deprived of this natural happiness?” came to everyone, who is a social and intelligent human being.

Our mind acts as a prism, which breaks down or split the light ray to seven colours called Rainbow. Our mind is a different kind of prism and it breaks down everything that we sense into two. Light and dark, cool and warm, mine and others etc etc.

If ray of light converted into a Rainbow is again allowed to pass through an inverted prism then that inverted prism will again  get combined into a light ray. This is where the Prism and Inverted Prism together act as if there was no prism in the path of the light ray.

This scientific fact is being used to describe my understanding about no-mind state described by Buddha, Lao Tzu and Jesus – as Jesus-consciousness (as per my info from Osho talks).

Ancient Indian sages devised Sheerasana i.e. A  Yoga that requires one to stand inverted on one’s head instead of legs. This Yoga has nothing to do with inversion of mind as one can see everything upside down only.

We have five senses and they are able to sense with the help of its recognition, interpretation etc by the mind. The interpreted information gets converted into personal information due to difference in experiences, vocabulary, knowledge of that person. That is why after hearing a sentence, or when scent is smelled or scene is watched  by many they all interpret its meaning or essence quite different from all others.

As per Osho, all these senses have two ends from one end we are able to see outside to inside and there it has to pass through the mind. Another end which is inside is also able to see/hear/smell/taste/touch from inside to outside. All unexplained experiences are from inside to outside use of senses but the moment passes through so fast that we remained in a state of awe, and it passes.

This is Inverted mind in use and if one is able to join his/her mind and no-mind together then he/she is able to see through the existence. This is where eternal Peace of Mind is achieved. God and his creation both at the same time but then the seer of the scene is lost – as per Osho. By practice it happens.

To know about Osho’s NAV Sannyas or neo sannyas, a way of life to live by fulfilling all personal and societal obligations while retaining oneself as pure for spiritual progress whenever free time available in life. Then focussing fully on self awareness when free from all responsibilities or by taking decision and be free from them.

Be like a grass leaf.

Tornado, Tsunami, Cyclone creates large scale destruction. We have seen many such unimaginable situations from pictures of affected area. A ship or boat is hanging on a tree! Cars floating in the sea!

Have anyone seen a picture of grass leaf after the impact of such natural disaster? If it is possible to take a close-up of a grass leaf, I hope it will the picture of feeling more stronger and fresher than before. While all big trees standing tall have suffered extensive irrecoverable damage.

This existence is also like an infinite Tornado, Cyclone or Tsunami, and it is such big that even if we are part of it we cannot imagine our self within it. Like a dry leaf at top of a tornado moving at very slow speed in space. When it settles, in due course of time, and comes in contact with the ground it can feel the tornado or cyclone etc.

If we have a strong ego of being a Doctor or Politician or Leader, being a Rich or Famous or both, or even a great server of society or religious person then it is living like a strong tree. The existence is exceptionally vast or infinite and we are nothing or even not noticeable to it. It is futile to fight with it saying I am this and this or that. It is in the effort to resist the existential cyclone it falls to never get up. It is uprooted!

The grass leaf  surrenders to it. It makes way for the cyclone. Its roots becomes stronger after it. It gains confidence by overcoming it and cleaned of all dust or dirt etc. gathered.

Why?

Surrender is the key. Surrender to the existence must be total and unconditional, like a grass leaf, then it is only 100%. It bends or respects by gives way to others thoughts/action/feelings. In our life we are sometimes at top of the cyclone of existence then we cannot even feel it as part of it. When we come down or settles then only we can feel the strong current and its destruction. We are part of it. A part cannot resist the whole. A hand cannot resist the mind. No one is bigger, higher or stronger than the other. We are like different body parts performing their given task to their best to serve the system of human body. No tress is better than the other. No hill is better than the other or even a stone. No river is better than the other. Each is a part of this existence.

While fighting, when an animal withdraws or surrenders against the stronger one, the stronger one accepts it as equal and don’t kill it to prove its supremacy. So is with existence, when you completely accept yourself, your body, your personality and your nothingness in comparison of it. Some human being even dares to fight with it – declaring your ego as being this and that- but in vain.

Surrender is the key to live as human being. Then every cyclone will fill you with more energy and confidence…
