My English is poor, pronunciation is further ahead of it. Still I write so that you may get a glimpse towards which I am pointing to, like 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 consciousness plays an important role in communicating the point at much higher level where we all are connected because I am writing only from my own experiences or understanding.

How it is possible that we know this very well still there is fear in our life?
In my opinion and it is based on my experience that whenever we feel fear, our mind is at work. So actually the fear exist in our mind!
It is tendency of our mind to fluctuate between two opposites ie positive and negative aspect of any thing.
Like past and future, good and bad and win and loose etc.
Fear exist because it fluctuates between powerful and weak in that moment. We find ourselves weak, the other as powerful so the fear exists to define both at same time.
Same is when we appear in or face any competition or such situations.
Now it is better to define God or no-God ie self of a person.
Many people believe that nature is God. This is nearest possible definition of God because it includes both theist and atheist as human being is also a most important part of nature.
Still it is not correct definition because we see things in nature around us keeps changing but still we think or take them as fixed. I used to stand below a mango tree to wait for my daily commute to office. So not only I am thinking that I am going to remain tomorrow but that tree will remain there too, when I promise someone to meet below it next day.
God is defined by sages as infinite, constant for eternity.
We know that nothing is constant but change. So this activity that keeps everything changing like flow of river is what God can be defined as. So God is constant as a change in daily life of everything. So all that is changing in whole infinite cosmos is God. So it becomes infinite too.
No one knows exactly when this existence started and no one knows when it is going to end, so this constantly changing infinite cosmos becomes eternal too.
Since it is present from eternity and going to remain in present for eternity too.
We are born as a human being on this planet Earth. Our lifespan in comparison to eternity is like that of soap bubble, as a child we all used to play with. It’s not bursting is celebrated, and birthday celebrations are similar to it. It’s bursting is treated as normal!!
Indian mystic Kabir said :
Just like the morning star or soap bubble human being’s life is same as compared to eternity.
Now the prominent question is:
How then God can accompany a human being, or how a person seek shelter or support of God, for becoming majority among living being.
Here it is important that God too wish to become majority and through human being only it is possible. God needs to correct course of life according to his plan whenever people goes astray.
Like Jesus went on in search of the sheep that went astray. and brought the sheep back carrying in his hands.
So definitely God needs human beings too, only to bring back peoples in a polite and caring way.
Now God seeking people and people seeking God but both are not meeting!
Because person uses mind and it keeps the person busy in duality or dichotomy, while God is always in present moment. People go on missing the present moment, God go on missing people.
Through meditation a person can learn to remain in no-mind state ie present moment.
Now by God’s grace it may happen that while you are practicing meditation, specially awareness meditation, you also attain egoless state simultaneously.
In that state you are able to actually see your ‘self’ or ‘soul’ or ‘God’ or consciousness etc etc.
Once you have seen then you are not the same person as before, because you have seen a glimpse of the infinite, constant and eternal mystics called it Emptiness or Existence or Tao etc. You have experienced timelessness within the framework of time, which in itself is a miracle. Call it passing if a Camel ie infinite existence, from the hole of a needle ie your eyes. It happens only and any effort on your side is just useless so it’s other name is God’s grace.
Now you are able to remain in present moment as per your choice of time, place and person.
So when you feel fear, just remain in present moment and stop your mind or invoke meditative state, and now God is with you. He was looking for someone who is in present moment, and he found you and now just leave yourself and let God act through you.
You may feel later on that what you did is simply impossible for you, but actually it is true. God functioned through you and made it possible for you. Call it miracle, but it happens only if you are able to receive God’s grace.
Only in your hand is practice of meditation and leave yourself in his hands, with trust. It is still happening and this planet never remained empty from such people.
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, 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.
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’. This is why I call Osho as reincarnation of Jesus, because he begun from where he left in his last life.
