Just a simple change in routine is needed to be able to see or perceive that which is beyond mind. Only a human being is capable of going beyond mind, beyond thoughts. It happens through third eye, so to us it seems impossible.
The opening of third eye, ie pineal gland in brain, leads to activation of claustrum in brain, which is responsible for experiencing consciousness. It is irreversible process, so living with open third eye and activated claustrum is called as rebirth of the person. It is another name for enlightenment or awakening.
Yes, we do not know how to connect with nature and others without the concept of ‘I’. That is the whole mystery!
First of all we need to understand how the development of our ego happens?
It happens unknowingly on its own as per requirements of the society or as society imposed on us. If you come to know that this is ego and this is how I can develop it, then only you can overcome it too. But only at a much later date we realise it as ego.
In Africa the female with big buttocks is given more respect, so she develops her ego based upon her buttock’s sex appeal. There they developed movements of body that increases its size! to one’s best the body can!
While in India she may feel depressed.
So ego is like shadow and if we feel ‘light of others eyes’ keeps falling on it, it becomes visible. If no one is watching means no light falling on it than it becomes invisible.
Ego is creation of mind, and even in meditative state one feels like ‘I felt no-mind state’, so in that no-mind state too the mind kept supplying energy so that ‘I’ remains there to feel the no-mind state.
Only in intense no-mind state, the ego falls on its own as a person falls in love of another one. It happens. In that no-mind and no-ego state you get a glimpse of reality as it is Or experience ‘the truth’ that liberates -says Jesus. Immediately the dark night of the soul ends, as you have seen the light within. Only in that light one is able to see nature, people as one. Once you are able to see the light from the source within, you can see that everyone is lighted by the same light.
This is why Jesus says ‘I am son of God’. In this the ‘I’ he is using is not indicating the body but indicating the new ‘I’ which is lighted by inner light and included the existence around him because their light too becomes visible now.
Knowing yourself you can know about everything, but the conditioning by society is a big hurdle in between that we need to carefully and slowly remove by keeping those wroth keeping and removing those worth nothing anymore. It is everyone’s responsibility after age of 18-21 years. Growing up of a child in society, religion and schooling etc are all necessary evil needed to keep surviving after birth.
Once a stage of Rocket has served its purpose it needs to be removed from the upper part. To carry such big, heavy weight till that height was necessary evil. This applies to every field in life.
All these information are of no use unless it becomes your experience too. To experience it is the only way to ‘know’ it as you stated in your sentence ‘we do not know’ and you are right.
Awareness meditation helping me last 25+ years, after trying about 10 meditations people in 12 years time. So you need to keep trying the one which helps relaxes you within 3 months is best for you and you can stop all others.
About mind and how it creates ego to keep us away from discovering the reality.
‘mind arises from consciousness’ and it helps movement of body ie action. I am using a metaphor to inform you from my experience.
The consciousness is the light flowing in the fibre optic cable from the source to you. In childhood you received it exactly as it is at source.
Living and growing in a society a child gets attracted towards lifestyle or wealth or facilities others people are enjoying that gives rise to desires etc.
Now due to dust particles like desires, attachment etc it’s other end ie you as receiving end start getting corrupted data, here comes the mind and it hacks the faulty data (so the mind is derived from consciousness becomes true) and uses those corrupted data to form a pseudo entity ‘Ego’ that is attached with body instead of consciousness and start sending data to that ego posing itself as you (while earlier your experienced consciousness as you)and start fulfil your desires.
Awareness meditation of performing act in a conscious way helps you in two way. First it helps in not letting your mind know that you are trying to go out of it’s hacked system, otherwise it starts creating pseudo feeling in you like sight of Jesus during meditation etc. this way you remain within its system and keep practicing meditation too!
Secondly it lets you fall or get dissolved suddenly into the consciousness called Philosia any day during any act. State of pure awareness is consciousness, is truth, is soul, is self.
My blog posts for more.
During Philosia moment we again get a glimpse of uncorrupted data from the source, and since we all have prior experience of it in our childhood, so we recognise it immediately as Real light or light of our own. This real light or data is same for everyone which gives rise to oneness among nature, human being etc all are deriving their light from the source that you have seen or experienced.
Now ego drops on its own, you have known that what you are holding as precious like diamond is nothing but pebbles as you have seen the diamond within. Now there is no need to drop ego, it gets dropped as it came.
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.
2. 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 OSHO.com/meditate.
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’.
Osho sannyasins have compiled complete works in Hindi and English of Osho with timeline. Every authentic information about Osho, his life, his disciples who lived with him etc is available at SANNYAS.WIKI
