If you are, then the invisible force is being expressed through you! Call it existence or consciousness and you can even see it!
This picture is about the invisible waves that we cannot see from our eyes, but if we are experiencing output from these gadgets. So it is a proof that they are working and invisible waves become visible through them. This is how formless expresses itself through forms.
Same is with us, with nature around us and with things around us. If we can feel them, observe them, or if they are growing or moving etc then it is sure that there is an invisible force behind them.
When I see myself into mirror then actually I am able to see that invisible energy which is being expressed through me. That infinite source or existence or consciousness or reality or self is just expressing itself through all creatures, things around us.
Only a human being is given gift of exhibiting quantum state like atom. In spiritual terms if a person is able to unlock his/her quantum state in the game called life, he/she is called as ‘awakened’ afterwards. Before that the wave state was sleeping and now one is able to use particle state(body) as well as wave state(spirit) at will. Once this wave state is unlocked it is going to remain forever. It is about this life Bob Marley, the famous singer of ISA, is talking about as richness in this famous interview. During Philosia moment in life it happens. Experiences of Philosia moment is like experiencing the Zeno effect.
But there are very few who unlock this power in video or VR game called human life. Since most of us possess only one state, so we could see only particle state of atom in a double slit experiment. It is not that atom is changing itself from wave to particle upon observing that we are watching it, but it is our inability to see the wave form of it.
In a double slit experiment when we observe the atom becomes particle otherwise it keeps behaving as a wave.
I wish to add:
In my post conditioning, philosophy and reality explained using a photo as metaphor, I tried to let us understand that the basic requirement to spiritual phenomenon is to know ourself first. Conditioning by society or of scientific wisdom or else are equally responsible to create hurdles in your spiritual journey. We must know the answer of question ‘who am I?’. Mystics says that by knowing ourself we come to know immediately the basic of everything and everyone in this universe because we all are getting energy from it.
I call it as Philosia moment, Since we have yet to unlock our power to exhibit the quantum state we are not able to see the wave form and treat it as invisible.
Before Philosia moment in our life, we lived only particle state of atom. During Philosia moment, it may even do not last even a nano moment, but due to quantum entanglement our inner self with the cosmic self the discovery of our ‘wave state’, that we have forgotten, happens. We start exhibiting both states wave and particle state at will onwards.
The strong presence or strong magnet like attraction we feel near an enlightened person is due to resonance of that awakened wave state and our sleeping wave state. This is why living near an enlightened person is advocated by earlier mystics, if one is willing to embark upon spiritual journey.
This ‘brings’ stoppage of continuous hankering of thoughts and death to ego as if after discovery of diamond in pocket the stones we were hiding in our hands automatically drops.
There is a term called mirror neuron in neuroanatomy also referred as mirror system. It is a type of neuron that fires when an action is performed and it also fires when an action being performed is observed. So living with a mystic may help mirror neuron to get activated in company of a master. Since at neuron level the internal eyes are able to observe the enlightened state or aura of awakened person to create a mirror system. Osho used to say that I am a mirror.
Awakening or enlightenment is like unlocking the power to exhibit or see both the states of atom. In wave form you are everywhere and in particle form you remain till body keeps living and after death you remain as wave!
Mystics all around the world have unlocked that power and have said that living human life after unlocking that power from within is bliss, ecstatic and ultimate freedom. Jesus’s uniqueness is his resurrection through which he made himself recognised, by his disciples, in spirit form (or omnipresent eternal wave form) by his disciples by chewing, his way of chewing was unique. So he became first mystic to demonstrate spirit form (wave form) to the living ones.
It is my experience too that the mind or continuous hankering of thoughts is biggest hurdle to unlock that power, it keeps us in past or future. While this forgotten power within could only be unlocked when we are ‘authentically’, totally’ and ‘intensely’ available in present moment.
We maintain many faces to survive in our society, if enlightenment is going to happen then it is going to happen to one only. So one needs to start living authentic life so that only one is going to get that experience. Mystics says that everyone encounters this experience in his/her life but the one present in that moment was not the authentic one so most of us miss the opportunity.
Osho suggested that for contemporary people practice of awareness meditation is simplest method that can be of great help in unlocking this hidden power within.
I practiced it for 20+ years (after trying different 8-10 meditations etc for 15 years) and found it miraculously helpful to most people who are living authentic life, performing their job in hand with totality and helpful to all.
So it is a try and error method. You may not take much time or you may never get it, but one thing is sure that every effort is added cumulatively to your spiritual account. So it is not going to waste but helps you in taking next birth in more favourable conditions so that you discover your quantum state in Philosia mement.
As we grow we need to become more efficient so as to earn our bread and butter hence we become robotic. While in our childhood we acted consciously during every act. This is why even the work was relaxing like a play. This awareness that we have lost is needed to be regained or discovered.
Osho says “At any moment you close your eyes, first you will see thoughts, a layer of thinking all around you, thoughts vibrating – one coming, another going – a crowd, a traffic. Remain silent for a few seconds, and suddenly you will see that thinking is no longer there but dreaming has started. You are dreaming that you have become the president of a country, or you have found a brick of gold on the road, or you have found a beautiful woman or a man, and suddenly you start projecting; dreams start functioning. If you continue dreaming for a long time, one moment will come when you will fall asleep – thinking, dreaming, sleep, and from sleep again to dreaming and thinking. This is how your whole life revolves. Real awareness is not known yet, and that real awareness is what Patanjali says will destroy ignorance – not knowledge, but awareness. We collect knowledge just to befool ourselves and others.”—————-Osho, Yoga:The science of the soul.
The mind is biggest hurdle in our inner journey. It is helpful too but only up to a certain altitude after that it needed to be disconnected from it because then it starts creating more trouble. So just like first stage of rocket engine is left to drop on the Earth so that the satellite can be launched in its orbit, our mind too needs to be dropped in subtle way so that even the mind could not recognise being dropped!
Awareness meditation is of great help in getting this job done.
Osho says “The deep problem is: how to become aware, how not to be unconscious. From where to start? Don’t try to fight with some very deep-rooted habit. You will be defeated. The fur coat will not leave you so easily. Start with very neutral habits.
For example: you go for a walk; just be aware that you are walking. (Try to Walk with witnessing consciousness).
It is a neutral thing. Nothing is invested in it. You are looking at the trees; just look at the trees and be aware. Don’t look with clouded eyes. Drop all thinking. Just for a few moments even, just look at the trees, and just look. Look at the stars. Swimming, just be alert to the inner feeling that happens inside your body while you are swimming, the inner. Feel it. You are taking a sun bath; feel how you start feeling inside: warm, settled, rested. While falling asleep, just watch how you are feeling inside. Inside, outside – try to be aware of the coolness of the sheets, the darkness in the room, the silence outside, or the noise outside. Suddenly, a dog barks – neutral things; bring your consciousness to them first. And then, by and by, proceed.
Then, try to be aware of your good habits, because good habits re not so deep-rooted as bad habits. Good habits need much sacrifice on your part, so very few people try to cultivate good habits. And even those who try to cultivate good habits try very few good habits; just underneath, many bad habits are there.
First try neutral, then good, then move by and by to bad habits. And finally, remember that each habit has to be made aware. Once you have become aware of your whole habitual pattern, that habitual pattern is your mind. Any day the shift will happen. Suddenly, you will be in the no-mind. When all the habits of your life have become aware, you don’t do them unconsciously suddenly, a shift will happen. You will find yourself in emptiness. That is the original mind which is neither pure nor impure.”——————-Osho, Yoga-The science of the soul, Chapter 3, Returning to the original mind.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me and I tried it first during brushing my teeth in the morning after trying 8-10 meditations over period of 15 years! So there is no need to reinvent the circle for you. May be you too find it suitable otherwise with Dynamic meditation and/or Kundalini in the evening it is suitable for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho for contemporary people that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
For others Osho suggested one time Dynamic Meditation along with awareness meditation.
How to become conscious and how I started? is given in my blog post

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’.
