Every human being is destined to go beyond these patterns but the way is through it only. Awareness meditation helps to not only understand these patterns but to go beyond them i e Tao, Jesus consciousness or Buddha consciousness or Krishna consciousness etc.
As per my experience, when we enter the world, study, job, raising family and achieving success in material life is like taking boat from one end to another.
Then dumping all success, knowledge and experience, that had helped only in consolidating our ego, on that shore itself and again with empty boat begin journey towards HOME gathering spiritual knowledge, practically applying them and gaining real wealth of wisdom.
My suggestion is: while taking boat from this end to the other end just keep an eye on this shore too by regular meditation – i preferred awareness and Zen from Osho’s 112 meditations. This is enough and you will come back on your own. There is no need of anything or anyone else as it is your very personal journey. If you seek help then there is big market out there for it.
Osho in his hand written letter to Mr Thakur too said something similar.
Noon, 25 July 1956
Was happy to receive your letter. I was worried about you and wanted to know your whereabouts. I had asked Madhu but even Madhu had no idea.
What makes you think that a distance lurks between us? On man’s mental frame, distance does not depend on space lying between two different points on the earth. In other words geographical distance bears no meaning. It actually depends upon the mind and its concern. We can be far distant, yet close; and we can be together, yet not close.
You have written about achieving success and attaining your goal. If hope and an incessant effort lights one’s path, one need not go anywhere in the search of success. It is like a moth that comes to the flame of effort on its own… Therefore, success should not be the goal, but an untiring effort alone.
Personally, I feel that effort itself is the attainment and unflinching step the goal.
I was sincerely hoping you to come back here after the summer vacation. Now wherever you are, I wish and pray that you can put all your heart and soul in whatever is your goal. In life always, keep an eye towards ‘God’. That will give you light constantly I have informed Madhu and Burman about you.
In last stage ie 7th rug of inner ladder, the person realises that whole world around him/her is just illusion (above Hologram with mind and all senses too, with capacity to reproduce!) and it seems to us that we are real due to this mind only, and (stopping of this) mind is also helping to awaken from a dream like state which makes possible to take Holographic body as real!
Hence human being can be best described by any enlightened mystic of today, or past, as Most sophisticated Hologram that can be produced ever- is having capacity to create lower level Holograms using machines or technology.
Whether you are a healing practitioner, Zen follower, artist, Craft person, buddhist, Lemuria partner, Jesus follower or Kabir/Krishna follower meditation helps everyone.
Meditation is the way to stop mind or come to no-mind state that brings this understanding-Said Buddha and all other mystics through different names.
Best meditation that suited me. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2641985275825745&id=188447071179590&ref=m_notif¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic
As you grow in material world, with experience many idioms and story heard, in younger age, cast a different shade of teachings behind them.
As one grows in spiritual world or inner world the same idiom or quote or story points towards an altogether different meaning and lesson there from.
Jokes by Osho or small stories by Buddha too have different shades of lessons behind them. In a way they act as milestones in your inner journey! At the same time they get further path lighted to make journey a celebration by raising level of confidence.
A story i heard had a different meaning then for me and now its meaning is changed altogether.
The story is about efforts of a person to save lives of fishes that were washed away to shore by waves of high magnitude.
One by one he was throwing them back to the ocean while millions are just living in pain and fear of dying.
Then another person passing by asked him about his futility of efforts in trying to save lives of fishes as there are millions and he has limited time and only one by one he can save. So he suggested that it is better not to put in such great efforts in saving those few, as their percentage is too low as compared to those which you are unable to save even with Herculean efforts at your end, that he was sincerely putting in actually.
He replied that i care about the one which i can save as it means a lot for that fish.
Today i got another meaning of this story :
The people are the fishes living an ordinary life in pain and fear. Our soul, our God, our inner being, our consciousness or our heart is represented by the ocean.
A mystic or Guru or Buddha or Osho or Nanak or Kabir or Rabia or Gurdjief or Zarathustra or Mahavira is the one who try their best to free us from pain and fear. While millions they are unable to save but yes it affects the one who is saved as he is saved for eternity as he enters the infinite ocean of emptiness or Kingdom of God as Jesus said.
