Osho Meditation Quotes

Osho Meditation Quotes
  1. Meditation comes naturally to a happy person. Meditation comes automatically to a joyous person. Meditation is very simple to a person who can celebrate, who can delight in life.
  2. This is your buddha-nature, beyond the body, beyond the mind. Just a watching, just a witnessing is the buddha.
  3. Meditation makes you a master and the mind becomes a slave. And remember: the mind as a master is dangerous because, after all, it is a machine; but the mind as a slave is tremendously significant, useful. A machine should function as a machine, not as a master. Our priorities are all upside-down — your Consciousness should be the master.
  4. if tea-drinking can become a meditation, then anything can become a meditation — cooking or washing your clothes, any activity can be transformed into meditation. And the real sannyasin, the real seeker, will transform all his acts into meditation. Only then, when meditation spreads over all your life, not only when you are awake in the day — slowly slowly it starts penetrating and permeating your being in sleep too — when it becomes just part of you, like breathing, like your heartbeat, then, only, have you attained to the discipline, to the essential discipline of Zen.
  5. Just be an observer, as if you are standing by the side of the road watching the traffic — no judgment, no evaluation, no condemnation, no appreciation — just pure observation.
  6. Remember only one quality that buddha has. That quality is witnessing. Whatever is happening, just be a witness, don’t be identified. You are not the body, you are not the mind, you are not the astral body. You are not the silence, you are not all those flowers that are showering on you. You are only a witness. The witness is the very being of a buddha.
  7. Try to understand what meditation is. Compassion can become a criterion as to whether the meditation was right or not. If the meditation has been right, compassion is bound to come — it is natural; it follows like a shadow. If the meditation has been wrong then compassion will not follow. So compassion can work as a criterion as to whether the meditation has been really right or not. And a meditation can be wrong. People have a wrong notion that all meditations are right; It is not so.Meditations can be wrong. For example, any meditation that leads you deep into concentration is wrong — it will not result in compassion. You will become more and more closed rather than becoming open. If you narrow down your Consciousness concentrate on something, and you exclude the whole of existence and become one-pointed, it will create more and more tension in you. Hence the word ‘attention’. It means ‘at-tension’. Concentration, the very sound of the word, gives you a feeling of tenseness.
  8. Meditation is not concentration but relaxation — one simply relaxes into oneself. The more you relax, the more you feel yourself open, vulnerable, the more you are less rigid, you are more flexible — and suddenly existence starts penetrating you. You are no longer like a rock, you have openings.Relaxation means allowing yourself to fall into a state where you are not doing anything, because if you are doing something, tension will continue. It is a state of non-doing. You simply relax and you enjoy the feeling of relaxation. Relax into yourself, just close your eyes, and listen to all that is happening all around. No need to feel anything as distraction.The moment you feel it is a distraction, you are denying God. This moment God has come to you as a bird. Don’t deny. He has knocked at your door as a bird. The next moment he has come as a dog — barking, or as a child crying and weeping, or as a madman laughing.

    Don’t deny; don’t reject; accept — because if you deny you will become tense. All denials create tension. Accept. If you want to relax, acceptance is the way. Accept whatsoever is happening all around; let it become an organic whole. It is — you may know it or you may not know it. Everything is inter-related.

    These birds, these trees, this sky, this sun, this earth, you, me — all are related. It is an organic unity. If the sun disappears, the trees will disappear; if the trees disappear, the birds will disappear; if the birds and trees disappear, you cannot be here, you will disappear. It is an ecology. Everything is deeply related with each other. So don’t deny anything, because the moment you deny, you are denying something in you. If you deny these singing birds then something in you is denied.
