Osho zen meditation

Discourses by Osho are available in book and MP3 form.

The following notes were taken from the series of discourses:

WALK WITHOUT FEET, FLY WITHOUT WINGS AND THINK WITHOUT MIND

Return to Osho Menu

#1: Life is not a noun, it is a verb. Life is a process. Reflect existence. If it is morning then say that it is morning. What may be virtue in the morning may be sin in the evening. All meaning is context related.
Excellent: Buddha stated truth in the negative while Mahavira stated it in the positive. There will be no misery versus there will be great bliss but the positive words create desire in the mind. Without desire only bliss can be attained. If the positive state is not talked about then there will be less enthusiasm to work hard at meditation.

St John of the Cross used to vomit during his states of ecstasy.


#2: Excellent: If you believe in yourself then you believe in an illusion. To know the real you have to go beyond the illusion. You don’t need to believe in the sun, moon and stars to know them. Belief is to hide ignorance. Absence of yourself is the presence of God. On awareness and responsibility to children. When the disciple is ready then the master appears.


#3: The body gives us an experience of the here and now. When you are hungry, thirsty, etc you are in the here and now. The body is in now but the mind is in the past and future. Society has been against the body and for the mind. Get in the body to be closer to God. The origins of meditation are from the study of sexual orgasm and deep sleep. The impossibility of defining anything without using a tautology.
Figure and background. Thoughts and silence. Clouds and sky. Psychology experiment. Large piece of white paper and a small black dot. All the students only saw the black dot and missed the paper. Interesting presuppositions we have about our own perceptions of self. Security and insecurity in relationships.


#4: A courageous person and a coward both experience the same amount of fear but the courageous person does not a allow the fear to be a block. On Sannyas for children. The process of deconditioning. Sannyas is a device and method, not a discipline of how one should live their life.


#5: Excellent: A game is serious because there is a desired outcome. A play has no outcome. A game has only one winner. With play everyone is a winner. When play becomes serious then it becomes a game. Play a competitive game for fun with no investment in the outcome.

Let children, family etc be a by product of love not as a goal. Love has become monopolistic – fixated on one person. It has become exclusive. We talk of my wife, husband, country, nation, religion. The wife/husband are not allowed to love another so we become dependent on one other. The pronoun ‘my’ is the problem – implies ownership. How can you own another person?

Excellent section on guilt: Guilt is a strategy created by the priests to exploit people and turn them into slaves. All that is natural has been condemned. The mind exists according to the priests. The body exists according to nature. There is a split between the two.

On orgasm and ecstasy.


#6: Great section on enlightenment: On gradual and sudden enlightenment. Negative emotions are natures way to motivate us towards a behaviour that brings positive ones. The connection between pornography and priests. The priest destroys man’s natural ability to enter into God through love, so that the priest can build his business. The spaces that you come across in love is the territory of the priest and he wants to control it. Nature intends for you to fall in love with the total and the individual is the doorway. Life is in relationship. Joy is in relationship. The word fascination derived from phallus which is derived from phala. Phala means bearing fruit.


#7: Factual memory versus psychological memory. Past is part of the present. All that you have done in the past becomes your present now. For example what you ate yesterday becomes your body now. Your present moment contains your whole past and future. The way that you live now has great impact upon your future. The tree enjoys this morning’s sun with no psychological memory of yesterday even though it carries the sun of yesterday in its sap.

How the Taj Mahal came into existence. A Sufi mystic from Siraz who by just touching the hand of the Kings daughter was able to sculpt a statue that was a perfect likeness. When the Kings wife died he created the model for the Taj Mahal. Objective art versus subjective art. Subjective art is cathartic type art as with art therapy while objective art is created out of silence without psychological memory.
Tantra meditation. The town with the secret of the most beautiful woman in the land. The beautiful female enlightened master who disguised herself as a prostitute as a way to attract men. The effect of her physical beauty and of her silence was to give the men a taste of the divine.


#8: What Osho says is a device. The content is just to illustrate a point. Don’t hook into the content. Death is a by product of the ego. What you reject you become more of.


#9: One has to develop understanding in order to transcend the negative. Ecstasy comes out of agony in direct proportion.


#10: Become feminine and receptive. On sexual fantasies in meditation. If you deny the lower then you will never reach to the higher. From sex to samadhi. The sculpture Bernini who depicted St Therese in union with God used as a model a woman in sexual orgasm. On male and female sexual orgasm. Erotic sexually explicit sculptures in some Indian temples. Tantra. Enlightenment: Arahat or Bodhisattva. St Francis of Assisi became enlightened despite being a monk.
