Awareness meditation or meditation is the door

Awareness meditation practice or meditation practice helps us in discovering the lost childhood grace, bliss within as you can see from face of the dancing girl in this image. Dancing with heart is nearest to awareness meditation. The image says that you dance with your feet, but it is with your heart that you dance.
Awareness meditation helps us in dancing with the heart.
It is with your feet you move, but it is the heart that you Dance in a meditative state like the girl in above image. 

“This is a picture of a person in Nirvana or Samadhi state. This is a picture of some emotional state, what does it have to do with ‘who is in the picture?’ Even if it is my own picture. I am saluting the samadhi, and the samadhi is not mine or yours, it is only not yours it is of all. Samadhi is samadhi. Samadhi has to be bowed down to.”
 – Ramakrishna Paramhansa replied to the painter when he objected that it is your own picture that I painted during ‘your samadhi state’ and you are bowing down to it!
With great respect to Samadhi or our wave state as per  quantum physics.
I wish to bow down to the picture of the dancing girl above.

My request:-
My English is poor Still I write so that you may start looking towards that which I am pointing to. As it happens when you ask a stranger in non-English speaking country about something and he or she tries to explain it. If you are thirsty of this knowledge, so you get it too. The cosmic consciousness plays an important role in communicating the point at much higher level where we all are connected. Since I am writing from my heart, which is the door to consciousness, and writing only which I myself discovered within from my own experiments, experiences from it or understanding. This is the only way to grow inner wisdom. I try to clarify part of his talk using brackets from my own experiences. 

Osho talking to his disciples about awareness meditation or sahaj dhyan mentioned in the messages of great Indian Mystic Kabir. From the book — The Revolution: Talks On Kabir by Osho

“I have not come across a single man in my life who has not had enlightened moments. 

You yourself don’t believe that you can be enlightened, so you don’t even take note of them. 

Someday, walking on the beach and the sun is beautiful and the breeze is salty and a moment comes, a door opens. 

Suddenly you start seeing things as you have never seen them. 

You are utterly lost in the moment; there is no past and no future. 

You have forgotten who you are, you have forgotten what you want to become, you simply are–in tune with the ocean and the wind and the sun. 

This is enlightenment–although I know you are not capable of living in it, because you have not created a meditative space inside you. 

So it comes and goes. 

If you have created a meditative space inside you, that meditative space will be able to contain it. 

That’s what meditation is all about: the capacity to contain enlightenment. 

Enlightenment comes to everybody–but you have so many holes in your being it flows out, it simply leaks out. 

Seeing a tree in full bloom, the spring has come and you are in a kind of awe. 

Seeing the green and the red and the gold of the tree, you are transported into another world. 

This is enlightenment. 

You fall back; the gravitation is too much. 

Your wife comes and says, “What are you doing here?”–and you are back again in your unenlightened state. 

And you are not courageous enough to accept the fact because you don’t respect yourself. 

You have been taught by the so-called religious people to condemn yourself. 

You cannot accept “Enlightenment can happen to me. It happened to Buddha–okay. It happened to Christ–maybe. But it can’t happen to me. To me? It can’t happen to me.” 

You have not respected yourself, you have not loved yourself. 

Otherwise enlightenment comes to everybody, all and sundry. 

It comes to sinners, it comes to saints. 

Enlightenment has no condition for coming. 

In fact, to use the word coming is not right–it arises. 

The impact of the sun and the beach, the impact of the morning breeze, and it arises inside you, a wave. 

Then it relapses back because you don’t have the space to contain it. 

Be meditative, and you will be able to contain that moment for longer periods. (In my case practice of awareness meditation during brushing my teeth in the morning helped me to get experience of no-thought moment for first time in my life. We all have experienced it but suddenly it comes and goes too. When we are able to experience it at will, then by just applying same technique during other acts, even sex!, we can learn to get more intense no-thought moments. In my one of the post ‘You are like Fibre optic cable’ I have described the reason for more intense no-thought moments.) 

And when you are totally meditative… And what do I mean by meditative? 

When you are totally thoughtless. 

It is thought that functions as a hole in your being–and you have so many thoughts, so you have so many holes. 

Your bucket is full of holes: with this bucket you go to a well and you try to draw water. 

When you lower the bucket down into the well, when it is in the water it is full of water. 

Then you start drawing it and the water starts leaking. 

By the time it reaches your hands it is empty. 

And it is not that it was not full of water when it was in the well–it was. 

Exactly like that, it happens. 

There are moments when you are full of enlightenment. 

Making love to your woman it happens: in that orgasmic space suddenly you are enlightened. (Since women were used as machine to give birth to child by man, they could rarely experience orgasm but now it is possible, so kundalini awakening or enlightenment is possible for women too. See my post on this topic for more.) 

You are a Krishna, and your wife, your beloved, is a Radha. 

You are no longer ordinary human beings. 

Suddenly you belong to eternity and not to time. 

Suddenly you are no longer physical bodies–you have buddha bodies in that moment. But then it is lost; you fall back.

It is like jumping. 

You can jump, and when you jump you lose the earth, the gravitation – for a moment you are part of the sky. 

But then you fall back because you don’t have wings. 

You will have to grow wings. 

Meditation is not really a search for enlightenment; enlightenment comes without any search. 

Meditation is just growing wings, or creating a space inside you so that when the guest comes, you can persuade the guest to live inside you and become the host.”

I learned practicing awareness meditation from part of this book as below.

Awareness meditation of Buddha by Osho:-


 A: It is important to understand because all the teachers of meditation in the world have

  been telling you that you have to keep a separate time for meditation. Mohammedans have to meditate five times in the day. Five times they have to close their shops, their businesses if they are real Mohammedans. 

My approach about meditation is totally different. I do not say to you that you have to shut down. 

But this is absolutely impractical. If the man is driving a railway train, or flying an aeroplane, and he has to stop five times, this is not going to be meditation, this is going to be a massacre! to have a separate time for meditation. 

Meditation has to be just like breathing — you don’t have a separate time for it, that in the morning you breathe and then you go to your business and forget breathing. You go on doing your things, and breathing continues.

Meditation has to be something like that, that it runs like an undercurrent in your all activities of the day. I will suggest you a very simple meditation. Whatever you are doing –you may be digging a hole in the earth, planting new rosebushes in your garden, working in your shop, or fighting a case in the court — it does not matter what you are doing. Do it consciously, do it with full awareness.

 I will tell you what I mean by it. 

Once Buddha was passing in Shrivasti with his dearest disciple, Ananda. A fly came and sat on his forehead. Just as we will do, he simply waved his hand and the fly was gone. 

Then he stopped, and took his hand very carefully, very consciously. The fly was no more there, and he waved his hand with great grace. 

Ananda could not understand what is happening. He said, “You have the fly few minutes before, and

  it is gone. Now what are you doing?”

And Buddha said, “That time I did it wrong. I did it without awareness. I continued to talk to you, and mechanically I simply waved my hand without being conscious of what I am doing. Now I am doing it as I should have done in the first place, to remind me that it does not happen again.” 

Any action done with awareness becomes meditation. (Or call it awareness meditation)

 In the beginning it will be difficult, you will go on forgetting again and again. But don’t be discouraged. Even if in twenty four hours you can manage for twenty four seconds, that is more than enough. Because the secret is the same. 

If you can manage it for one second, you know the key. You know the knack. Then it is only a question of time. 

Slowly, slowly, you will be having bigger gaps when you are aware. The action continues; not only it continues, it becomes better than ever before; because now you are doing with such consciousness. 

Its quality changes, because you are conscious, you are totally there. Your intensity changes, your insight, your understanding; and the action that you are doing starts having a grace of its own.

Meditation should be slowly spread all over your life. Even while going to sleep, lying down on your bed, it will take few minutes for you to go to sleep. Those few minutes be alert,

 of the silence, of the darkness, of the relaxed body. Remain alert as sleep starts descending on

 you, till you are completely overwhelmed by the sleep, and you will be surprised that if you had continued to the very last moment when sleep took over you, in the morning the first thought will be again of awareness; because whatever is the last thought before you go to sleep is always the first thought in the morning when you wake up. Because it continues as an undercurrent in your sleep.

You cannot find time, nobody has time. The day is so full. But six or eight hours in the night can be transformed into meditation. Even a Buddha will feel jealous of you. Even he cannot meditate eight hours. It is simply an intelligent effort to transform your sleep. 

You are taking a shower. Why not take it with awareness.

Why take it mechanically? Just doing like a robot, because you have been doing it every day, so you go on doing it and it becomes

 mechanical. Do everything non-mechanically, and slowly, slowly meditation will not be a question that it needs separate time. It becomes spread all over your day, twenty four hours.

 Then only you are on the right track. (So as to enter the kingdom of God one day)

 The people who meditate ten minutes in the morning, are not going to gain much.

Because ten minutes of meditation, and twenty four hours against it, how you are going to win? 

You have to put twenty four hours of meditation against twenty four hours of ordinary life. 

Then there is absolute guarantee that success is going to be yours.

In St John’s Gospel, it is clearly mentioned that before being caught by people came with Judas, Jesus tried to teach Meditation to his disciples so that they can connect with him. He tried to transfer his energy to them.

He told them ‘Sit’ and went for prayer but returned and found them sleeping. He tried two more times but in vain. This ‘Sit’ word is still in use by Zen people for meditation. Their saying is, ‘Sit silently do nothing, season comes and grass grows by itself green.’

In brackets are my comments so that you get enriched by experiences of Osho as well as whatever little I have experienced till date through practice of awareness meditation.

My favourite meditation that I am practicing last 35 years is Awareness as Meditation or Mindfulness Meditation during brushing my teeth. Earlier it was a robotic act and I used to think about past or future act/activity/instances etc. By being totally aware during brushing feeling it’s abrasion on every tooth, coupled with sensation of paste etc all thoughts slowly got dissolved and only present moment remained. Miraculous it is, as it engrossed all my activities over the period of time.
There are only few people for whom it is difficult to practice awareness meditation. Within few months most start experiencing a little moment of forgetfulness or absence thoughts. But still there are those who could not hold their mind. For them some techniques are needed. I have given link at bottom to know why they are important for those few people.

Or you may learn better from this video:

Osho on Awareness meditation or Sahaj Dhyan.

Tantra Meditation:

Tantra meditation is application of this awareness meditation, once it starts happening, during sex by one or both partners. Simple.)

Osho on need of technique for attaining meditation.

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.

Hi ….. I write my comments from my personal experiences of my inner journey and how I add value to life by living consciously. This post may include teachings of Mystics around the world which from my personal experience I found worth following even today. For more have a look at my linktree website for getting regular updates through social media lor subscribe to YouTube channel or listen to the podcasts etc.

The photo in this post is a girl in meditative state while dancing. I used description from a book of Osho. It is as below:-

Osho says:- Once a painter told mystic Ramakrishna that he wants to make a painting of him. Ramakrishna agreed and sat in a meditative posture. The painter painted their photo on the canvas. He informed him that my painting is over now, so Ramakrishna opened his eyes, and looking at the painting bowed down to the painting and touched its feet too.

The painter was very puzzled and asked him, ‘Why you touched feet of your own photo in painting?’ Ramakrishna replied that I was in a deep meditative state when you were drawing my painting. So the face was glowing and has a different beauty because the Godliness was expressing itself through this body. My salute is to that state if mind or Godliness and it should be prayed irrespective of the person. I could not have seen its beauty had you not painted it.

  1. “Meditation is not really a search for enlightenment; enlightenment comes without any search. ”
    I am amazed by your thoughts. Your thinking is different from the world and is philosophically exciting to ponder upon.
    Agreed, meditation gives you wings!

    1. Whole existence is like a uterus and those who get enlightened are actually taking birth from that uterus. The new life is lived in ‘The kingdom of God’ as Jesus said.
      I used to have such imagination too. Practice of Awareness meditation is of great help to me.

      1. From the reality of the soul
        we become from our mother
        born on earth

        me is jesus
        and other gods
        never to the event
        become in my experience

        in exercise
        through a deep relaxation
        the goal
        in the silence
        an inner emptiness
        the freedom from Geanken
        to reach
        brought me to zen
        to a contrary result

      1. आत्मा सब कुछ समेटे हुए है
        वो भी
        आप उनकी व्याख्या के साथ
        मूर्त बनाओ

        उसकी एक संरचना
        अंदर और बाहर से

        सभी बलों के
        सूक्ष्म जगत में
        ब्रह्मांड में
        औसत दर्जे का

        उनकी शब्दावली के साथ
        समझना और समझना चाहते हैं

        अपने तरीके से अधिकार पाने के लिए
        हमारे विचारों का साहुल
        गुरुत्वाकर्षण महसूस कर सकते हैं
        आत्मा से पीछे नहीं हटना

        उत्तरार्द्ध अपनी संपूर्णता में
        मनुष्य के लिए एक रहस्य रहेगा

        सपने में सबको देता है
        अवलोकन के लिए
        आदमी को क्या करना है
        या बेहतर नहीं

        ज्ञान शक्ति है
        यह एक जीवाणु है
        जीवन की सार्वभौमिकता में

        जो पूरी तरह से खाली हो जाएगा
        मृत्यु में लक्ष्य है

        ओरेकल से परामर्श करें (यिंग और यांग)
        इस पर मौत की मदद नहीं करता

        पानी और पत्थर

        आत्मा शासक है
        हर भाग्य पर
        हर जीवन के बारे में

        मैं एक साधारण व्यक्ति हूँ
        अध्यात्म के राजा
        सांसारिक शक्ति से विमुख

        मैं बचपन से जा रहा हूँ
        आत्मा के स्कूल के लिए
        मेरे अंत तक
        जहां मेरे शब्द समाप्त होते हैं
        और मैं चुप हूँ
