Re: Wild Wild Country

but he definitely made some bad personal choices, especially about who was running his organization, Sheela! I have no dispute with this. Yes, he obviously made some decisions that caused one to wonder, and others that did not serve his movement well. That's why I ignored him when all the bad press...

Re: Hello from Cornwall . UK.

Welcome to the board, Relaxedracer. I like to ride too for the same reason, only I ride bicycles. For me it's like a moving meditation. I look forward to your contributions here.

Re: Wild Wild Country

I pretty much blew off OSHO/Rajneesh when I first heard about him in the 70s because of the bad press he was getting. Plus, I couldn't really understand what he was saying. It wasn't until I had my breakthrough that was triggered by Tolle that I revisited the writings of OSHO, and I found them to be...

Re: Which doorway?

Hi Sakampa, and welcome to the board. There are no rules to follow in order to awaken and no regimen with specific guidelines. There are many things one can do, but no one can tell you which is the right one. If that were the case awakening would be pretty simple for everyone, but that's not the way...

Re: Apathy

Welcome to the community, Niki. My condolences as well on your husband's passing. Webwanderer and Onceler gave excellent responses in this thread. I really have nothing to add to what they said other than to just be open to life as it unfolds. Any discomfort you are experiencing is understandable as...

Re: Afraid to acknowledge the pain

It's my ego's resistance to its own death. Ultimately, that's what the ego fears most, its own death. What it doesn't really recognize (because it can't) is that it doesn't even exist as an actual independent and separate entity to begin with. What does recognize its illusory reality is consciousne...

Re: Do you recomend any meditation for a complete beginner?

Another question. Can I add a mantra to the meditation you gave me? The mantra is So Hum, it is said to give many benefits but the principal point is that breath meditation is very boring, maybe the mantra can help me mantain the focus. Sure. I've used it myself in the past. The mind seems to need ...

Re: What happens in meditation?

Maintain a regular practice, twice daily if possible. The challenge early in one's practice is to be disciplined and not give up. This sort of practice will take time before you begin to notice the kind of things I outlined in my response to joe. If you put expectations upon your meditation sessions...

Re: What happens in meditation?

Following the breath is one type of meditation that uses the breath as a focus for attention, and serves as a means to redirect attention away from thought stream, body sensations and emotions. At the physical level, as attention gets repeatedly redirected onto the breath mind activity begins to qui...

Re: Do you recomend any meditation for a complete beginner?

I also recommend following the breath (I recommend eyes closed for beginners) with a slight variation in Webwanderer's recommendation. I'd begin by doing an eyes closed scan of the body, noticing and relaxing whatever part of your body is holding tension and then letting go of that tension. Then I'd...
