I feel proud today to have opted to follow the ‘Music for Deep Meditation’ page and credit also goes to @i.think.2 for this post.
The world around us is hell and haven both like this picture. One way to live in mind and the world looks like hell. The other way is to look at it with no mind, and you enter the Kingdom of God or “Ramrajya”.
Religious and all other conditionings, Philosophy and REALITY. These all three can be understood through this photo.
In a very simple way, it can be understood as ‘Believing on the message given above this photo and start looking at the picture then it seems to be true to you.’
Philosophy: Trying to decipher REALITY assuming the view of the photo as true. The efforts of previous Philosophers are also taken into consideration to arrive at the conclusion.
REALITY: Reality is what appears to you after reading the message given below the photo. The glimpse of the first right-side-up of an object is coined by Osho as Philosia. First of all, you will come to know your REALITY, then all others start visible as right side up. The act of seeing the first dish right side up or REALITY is called Philosia.
This is why Nachiket’s father Uddalak asked him, on returning home after attaining graduation like education, ‘Have you known the one, after knowing which everything is known?’, and he replied ‘No’. So Uddalak sent back him to his master’s ashram stating that you are welcome at home only after knowing it.
The lines below may be treated as messages of all those Mystics. Without the help of these lines, it is very difficult to find the purpose of this picture.
People started worshipping all these Mystics ie Ram, Krishna, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad, Mahavira, Nanak etc is like I start praying @i.think.2’s account holder instead of trying to understand the message by correlating it with its picture given above.
Mystics do not have a fancy of using the internet, Photoshop and social media so they tried to create the picture using words through stories, poems and songs. Verses and songs of Kabir, Meera, Nanak or stories of Jesus and Buddha or Koans of Zen masters or Passages like Lao Tzu or Jokes by Osho.
These all are finger pointing to the moon, one needs to look into the stories with the messages that mystic together to get the clue about REALITY or Truth or God or Kingdom of God or Soul or Self or Consciousness etc. Mystics said that REALITY is the same for all ie we all are playing a role in a grand existential drama going on from eternity to eternity. What our conditioning did is presuming it as real by enhancing our ego and making a fictitious race among us for the fulfilment of our desires. The bigger the fulfilled desires, the bigger is that person treated as.
Philosophy is about looking all these dishes upside down and trying to correlate them to get a clue about the Reality or Purpose of life, without looking at the messages at all. But due respect is given to all writings of previous philosophers!
Your effort to see the one which is right side up, is exactly like meditating upon ‘Who am I?’
And the answer you get about yourself let you understand that all are like you ie God. A sound starts ringing in the ears of the person who experienced Philosia, to keep reminding ‘Who is he/she?’.
After enlightenment, only God can be seen in all others and you need to put in little dedicated effort to understand the other as he/she understands himself/herself ie downside up.
This is the reason that the messages of Mystics never reach as it is told because they both are having different view about themselves and others.
