Tornado, Tsunami, Cyclone creates large scale destruction. We have seen many such unimaginable situations from pictures of affected area. A ship or boat is hanging on a tree! Cars floating in the sea!
Have anyone seen a picture of grass leaf after the impact of such natural disaster? If it is possible to take a close-up of a grass leaf, I hope it will the picture of feeling more stronger and fresher than before. While all big trees standing tall have suffered extensive irrecoverable damage.
This existence is also like an infinite Tornado, Cyclone or Tsunami, and it is such big that even if we are part of it we cannot imagine our self within it. Like a dry leaf at top of a tornado moving at very slow speed in space. When it settles, in due course of time, and comes in contact with the ground it can feel the tornado or cyclone etc.
If we have a strong ego of being a Doctor or Politician or Leader, being a Rich or Famous or both, or even a great server of society or religious person then it is living like a strong tree. The existence is exceptionally vast or infinite and we are nothing or even not noticeable to it. It is futile to fight with it saying I am this and this or that. It is in the effort to resist the existential cyclone it falls to never get up. It is uprooted!
The grass leaf surrenders to it. It makes way for the cyclone. Its roots becomes stronger after it. It gains confidence by overcoming it and cleaned of all dust or dirt etc. gathered.
Surrender is the key. Surrender to the existence must be total and unconditional, like a grass leaf, then it is only 100%. It bends or respects by gives way to others thoughts/action/feelings. In our life we are sometimes at top of the cyclone of existence then we cannot even feel it as part of it. When we come down or settles then only we can feel the strong current and its destruction. We are part of it. A part cannot resist the whole. A hand cannot resist the mind. No one is bigger, higher or stronger than the other. We are like different body parts performing their given task to their best to serve the system of human body. No tress is better than the other. No hill is better than the other or even a stone. No river is better than the other. Each is a part of this existence.
While fighting, when an animal withdraws or surrenders against the stronger one, the stronger one accepts it as equal and don’t kill it to prove its supremacy. So is with existence, when you completely accept yourself, your body, your personality and your nothingness in comparison of it. Some human being even dares to fight with it – declaring your ego as being this and that- but in vain.
Surrender is the key to live as human being. Then every cyclone will fill you with more energy and confidence…
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.

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 iOSHOthrough App.
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’.
