We all know that Judas sold Jesus for 30 silver coins. Had he has not handed over Jesus to people who are searching for him, he could have enlightened many hearts with his love. Jesus is a transformed soul, such soul exists in existence for eternity. And he is available to all of us. He resides in every soul. In every selfless act of goodness or service or compassion by anyone, anywhere in the existence, he immediately becomes part of that soul.
So whenever a person is cheating his soul, that person is actually selling Jesus for some sensory pleasure(s) or silver coin or power or name & fame, just like Judas. SO in every act God is with us, if it is act of goodness then he is being praised, and if it is act of cheating or selling our soul, he is being sold.
Osho says :-
Intelligent people are bound to break all their vows many times, because life goes on changing, situations go on changing.
And the vow is taken under pressure — maybe the fear or respectability in society…. It is not coming from your innermost core. When something comes from your own inner being, it is never broken. But then it is never a vow, it is a simple phenomenon like breathing.
And drop this idea of being a sinner, because that must be creating some guilt in you. That guilt is one of the oldest tricks of the priests for dominating people. They create guilt in you. They give you such stupid ideas that you cannot fulfill them. Then guilt arises, and once the guilt has arisen, you are trapped.
Guilt is the trade secret of all the so-called, established religions. Create guilt in people, make them feel bad about themselves. Don’t let them be respectful of their own lives; let them feel condemned. Let them feel, deep down, that they are ugly, that they are not of any worth, that they are dust, and then of course they will be ready to be guided by any fool. They will be more than ready to become dependent, in the hope that “somebody will lead us to the ultimate light.” These are the people who have been exploiting you for centuries.
People like Jesus are like silver lining in dark clouds. We need to just take our understanding to a deeper level ie our centre of being. To read full text of Osho on Rumi.
Awareness meditation (Osho guiding about meditation on YouTube) is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “How meditation affects us?”.
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.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step in deciding to add value to life. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation (My experiences shared through a post) helped miraculously. Along with meditation living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful. It is helful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
