In this video the double pendulum system with ring is in equilibrium initially. This initial state can be assumed as Adam and Eve living in the kingdom of God.

Then the equilibrium is disturbed but for our ease it was given enough momentum that may have taken one hour to gain. This disturbance is use of mind by the human being that leads to infinite desires, ego etc. as by product.

Tao is the law of equilibrium that this system is following, due to which the system is moving in such a way that it remains in equilibrium.

The circle may be good or Yin and bar may be taken as Yang or bad. This duality that is visible to us, is actually not two but one system — says Adwait Vedanta.

The person who has disturbed it first time the Witness (Sakshi) or consciousness, who is enjoying/monitoring all these movements and mesmerised or amazed or astonished to watch it.

If he comes to know that the ring or bar is considering themselves responsible for the movements, then he is going to laugh out loud or ROFL.

This is why Hotei -a Chinese mystic kept laughing all through his life.

After nirvana the state of a person become that of this witness. For him good or bad drops! Now it has dropped for you too, but you need to experience it yourself.

This is just to inform you that do not get caught in words like Tao, Watcher, Adwait Vedanta but instead try to practice awareness meditation for few minutes.

The mind has begun this game and we can go beyond it by stopping it, this is truth.

A song of Sufi mystic Bulle Shah is translated into English.

We are all serving life sentences in the prison of the world in our own homes due to our mind. As this video has clearly demonstrated that when the mind starts functioning in our body, we start defining our world. Before that when we were innocent by default and have enjoyed state of watcher but it’s worth is not known to us. The innocence is lost so that when we find it again, and then we are not going to loose it again for sure because we have earned it through our efforts. This is the whole game of the God, in which we are just playing our role- do not get involved in the role so mush so that you find it difficult to let go of it. Only after letting go of it, we are going to enter sincerely into this game.

Since the limitless world is its boundary wall, we have got some freedom in it. Due to which it does not look like imprisonment but more like freedom.

The prisoner of the jail sometimes comes out after serving his sentence in jail and tastes the taste of freedom. He also knows the true cost of our freedom.

He is surprised to see our withered faces after coming out of prison. Or don’t they know that these people are free?

But in order to know the true value of freedom, we must first know that we are in captivity. We never know when we become prisoners of our own created desires, lusts and race for position/prestige like a spider.

And it is our personal responsibility to come out of it.

Bulleh Shah says that there is no peace for a moment, and there is no solution — yet he walks alone and thirsty and like a camel in the desert.

While many have gone thirsty on this path before and the skeletons of those camels are visible, yet it continues to walk. The solution will be found by turning, but who will turn?

What man’s life? It is today and may not happen tomorrow. It means that the decision to turn should also be taken in a sense of urgency.

Bulleh Shah says to those who judge others, come on, I have made many mistakes, but at least you are not mad? If you are intelligent, then why are you not at peace? Then why are you afraid?

Are we in prison? If so, then why haven’t we felt the extreme thirst for freedom?

Are we free? If so then why can’t we smile? Why are we not dancing? Why aren’t we happy and celebrating every moment knowing that we are free?

In fact we do not know our position at all, and therefore all our beginnings prove futile in the end. We failed in all our earlier attempts because we don’t start our journey from where we are, but instead from where we have pictured ourselves to be in the future.

I say from my experience, if we know our right position before embarking upon inner journey and able to discover or know the right method -which starts giving benefits immediately, then the journey is not more than 4–5 years. We failed in our earlier lives because we could not dedicate our 100% towards inner journey. He gave us full freedom and made us 100% human being so he is not going to accept anything less than that for sure.

Only a human being is able to discover it and we know that in future in some life we too are going to discover it, then why not put in our best to discover it in this life itself?

You enter the kingdom of god means your mind has stopped completely and you become watcher of the whole existential drama.

May your journey moves forward with my infinite best wishes.

As we grow we need to become more efficient so as to earn our bread and butter hence we become robotic. While in our childhood we acted consciously during every act. This is why even the work was relaxing like a play. This awareness that we have lost is needed to be regained or discovered.

Osho says “At any moment you close your eyes, first you will see thoughts, a layer of thinking all around you, thoughts vibrating — one coming, another going — a crowd, a traffic. Remain silent for a few seconds, and suddenly you will see that thinking is no longer there but dreaming has started. You are dreaming that you have become the president of a country, or you have found a brick of gold on the road, or you have found a beautiful woman or a man, and suddenly you start projecting; dreams start functioning. If you continue dreaming for a long time, one moment will come when you will fall asleep — thinking, dreaming, sleep, and from sleep again to dreaming and thinking. This is how your whole life revolves. Real awareness is not known yet, and that real awareness is what Patanjali says will destroy ignorance — not knowledge, but awareness. We collect knowledge just to befool ourselves and others.” — — — Osho, Yoga:The science of the soul.

The mind is biggest hurdle in our inner journey. It is helpful too but only up to a certain altitude after that it needed to be disconnected from it because then it starts creating more trouble. So just like first stage of rocket engine is left to drop on the Earth so that the satellite can be launched in its orbit, our mind too needs to be dropped in subtle way so that even the mind could not recognise being dropped!

Awareness meditation is of great help in getting this job done.

Osho says “The deep problem is: how to become aware, how not to be unconscious. From where to start? Don’t try to fight with some very deep-rooted habit. You will be defeated. Start with very neutral habits.

For example: you go for a walk; just be aware that you are walking. (Try to Walk with witnessing consciousness).

Awareness meditation is the way worked for me and I tried it first during brushing my teeth in the morning after trying 8–10 meditations over period of 15 years! So there is no need to reinvent the circle for you. May be you too find it suitable otherwise with Dynamic meditation and/or Kundalini in the evening it is suitable for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho for contemporary people that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

This Zen method uses another chaos theory to attain a state of no-mind or no-movement in a person that causes synchronicity of it with another infinite system that works on chaos, like our universe ie the video on top, to get enlightened suddenly. This is why the Zen method is treated as most scientific and modern to try.

Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home apart from above,

  1. There is OSHO Evening Meeting streaming which can be accessed every day at local time starting 6:40 pm (of which Osho says that he wants his people to view it all over the world and these days it is possible) and 16 of the meditations mostly with video instructions and so much more on OSHO.com/meditate.
  2. There is a 7 days Free Trial also for people who would like to first try it out.

This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.

Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.

Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’. His message is purely that of Buddha: the message consists of awareness. He shouts again and again, “Beware!” And remember, the word “beware” consists of two words: “be aware”. He says again and again, “Remain awake!” but he has to translate it into Jewish metaphors.
