Positive Mind

“Love yourself and observe … today, tomorrow, and always.” Part II

If you hate yourself –the way that you do, exactly the way that you have been told to and in exactly the way that you have been religiously accustomed to – if you do hate yourself, how can you truly be with yourself?

Meditation is nothing more than enjoying your beautiful solitude, celebrating yourself. This is what meditation achieves. Meditation is not a relationship. The other is not needed; oneself is enough to enjoy oneself. One is swept away in his own glory, swept away in his own light. One is joyful just because he is alive, because he just IS.

The greatest miracle in the world is that you and I am. To be is the greatest miracle, and meditation opens the door to that grand miracle. But only a man who truly loves himself is able to meditate; if not, he is always only trying to escape from himself, avoiding. Tell me, who wishes to look at an ugly face and who especially desires to look inside of an ugly being?

Who wishes to profoundly go deep into his own muck, into his own darkness? Who wishes to enter into the hell that he believes it is? You rather wish to keep this all covered with beautiful flowers and always instead choose to escape from yourself.

That is why people are constantly looking for company. They can’t be alone with themselves; they’d rather be with others. People are looking for absolutely any kind of company; simply avoiding their own company, anything else is better. They would rather sit in a movie theater for three hours watching something completely stupid. They will read a detective’s novel for hours, wasting time. They will read the same newspaper repeatedly just to keep themselves busy. They will play cards and chess just to kill time … As if they had too much time on their hands!

Love begins with yourself, and from there it continues to expand. It continues expanding on its own and in its own time; you don’t need to do anything to expand it.

“Love yourself …” says Buddha. And then, he immediately adds: “… and Observe”. That is meditation; it is Buddha’s name for meditation. But the first requisite is that you love yourself, and then, observe. If you don’t love yourself first and start to observe, you may feel as if you were committing suicide.

Many Buddhists feel they are committing suicide because they don’t pay attention to the first part of the Sutra, they jump ahead to the second: observe yourself. In the Sutras of Buddha, there first needs attention to be focused on the first part: Love yourself.

Socrates says: Know yourself, Buddha says: Love yourself. And Buddha is more correct, because unless you love yourself, you will never know yourself – the knowledge only comes later, love prepares the ground. Love is the possibility to know oneself. The path of love is the correct way to know oneself.

“LOVE YOURSELF and OBSERVE … TODAY, TOMORROW, and ALWAYS.”

This is one of the most profound Sutras of Buddha.

Create loving energy around yourself. Love your body and love your mind. Love your whole mechanism, your whole organism. To Love means: accepting it exactly as it is, without needing to restrain it. We repress only when we hate something. We repress only when we are against something. Do not repress, because if you repress, how are you going to observe? We cannot look the enemy in the eye; we can only look into the eyes of our beloveds. If you are not a lover of yourself you will not be able to look into your own eyes, your own face, your own reality.

To observe is meditation, Buddha’s name for meditation. To Observe is Buddha’s password. He says: be conscious, alert, don’t be unconscious. Do not behave in a sleepy manner. Do not continue working like a machine, a robot. That’s the way most people behave.

Observe – just observe. Buddha doesn’t say what has to be observed – Everything! When walking, observe your walking. When eating, observe your eating. When taking a shower, observe the water, the cold water falling onto you, the feel of the water, its freshness, the shiver that passes through your spine – Observe everything, “Today, Tomorrow, Always.”

And finally, comes the moment when you are able to observe your own dreams. It is the paramount moment of observation. The body goes to sleep, and yet, there is a ‘watcher’ who remains awake, silently watching the body in deep sleep. This is the ultimate moment of observation. In this moment just the contrary is the case: your body is awake but you are asleep. So, it is when you are awake and your body will be asleep. The body needs rest but your consciousness needs no sleep at all. Your consciousness is conscious; it is to be alert, it is your true nature.

As you become more of an observer, you begin to grow wings - then the whole sky is yours. The man is a conglomeration of Heaven and Earth, of Body and Soul. Osho


The beauty of this process
Diksha=Oneness Blessing is a transfer of Divine energy which helps us to
dis-identify from conflict and suffering, taking us to states of inner peace, joy, happiness and Oneness

Diksha energy is universal & useful in all spiritual traditions.
It enhances our ability to connect from the Heart with the Divine & with all of the people that we love.
Many report that after receiving Diksha = Oneness Blessing they experience healing on all levels, as well as powerful and ongoing spiritual awakening. Most people are seeking harmony and joy. We have discovered that it is possible for everybody to live in that state of inner freedom, even permanently.

Oneness Blessing initiates a process of awakening the Divine Presence within you; taking you towards Oneness, and enabling you to see the reality of what you are in every moment. Also healing your body, your relationships, and recognizing the divinity in the experience of the present moment….

Conscious awakening is the ability to see reality as it is, without the layers of interference and interpretation imposed by the mind. It is a simple neurobiological event, and can happen instantaneously.

Conscious awakening is peeling off the layers of interpretation from any given event. To the enlightened person, life becomes very ordinary. You walk, and you are walking. You eat, and you are eating. Enlightenment is not about having extraordinary experiences so much as recognizing that each ordinary moment is extraordinary in itself.

Before, there were a thousand interpretations in the mind for everything you experienced. Now, there is only the experience.

In this Divine state you consciously experience your divine self and become one with God. This can be experienced as a great explosion of love or joy, which is much more profound than any worldly pleasure.
When someone reaches this state of being, this connection with God, the Divine, the Absolute, they will surely have achieved the ultimate that being on this earth can offer.

You, your freedom and your liberation is what is most important to me.

Experiences
These are experiences from a few people who have received Diksha = Oneness Blessing:
I saw the colors: purple, yellow, green and blue. And in the middle of these colors was a circle that seemed very far away. As this circle came closer to me, I suddenly saw my son. I told him by thought to touch my tummy to feel the peace and serenity as well as see the colors that I was observing and I suddenly began to cry with overwhelming feeling. I also saw some brightly illuminated white steps and I saw Jesus Christ there.

It was very beautiful; I felt a deep rest inside myself and my back pain disappeared.
I observed blue, orange and red lights. I also saw a figure moving inside of a dark tunnel that moved towards me and then away. When you placed your hand on my heart I felt that your hand moved something very strong.
