When we see a flower like Rose, our eyes gets struck at the flower itself because it attracts. When we try to pluck it from the rose plant then we came to experience or know that there are thorns too. Because our focus is on flower we could not see the thorns. Rose has a purpose and the thorn has a purpose. The thorn protected it, for you, get eaten away by animals! It is like army for a country so that people can live peacefully. The same branch gave nutritions to rose and the thorn. The same stem carried the nutrients from roots to the branch. The same roots collected the nutrients from soil and same light and air processed it.
In the same way we are serving different purposes of life as human being. The same local body is serving us. The same state is administrating us. The same country is protecting us. The same light, water, the Earth+Sun or universe and air or space is providing enough resources to every country. Every part has a purpose and a blessing. Blessing for thorn is that no one tries to pluck it, so it is saved from the pain of being plucked from its very source!
As a human being we can understand it by serving people selflessly.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home,
1. through Osho Meditation Day @€20.00 per person. OIO rotate times through three timezones NY,Berlin and Mumbai. You can prebook according to the convenient time for you.

3. 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’.
