On pressing share button on my Wink music app notifying me about my listening statistics of last one year, this message is delivered
Since last year I was thinking about writing few blogs to inform all here about few bhajans, songs that touched my heart to such a depth that I listen them daily and dancing on them too, as per the mood in that moment. I wanted to share my meanings from those bhajans and few songs/bhajans I have shared here too in my earlier blogs. They are
मन रे ! तू काहे ना धीर धरे-गाने का ओशो संन्यासी वर्ज़न
I resisted myself somehow but today Wynk Music app gave me a surprise gift. So I decided to write few blogs based upon the bhajans/songs that I listen that may be found useful by any sincere seeker visiting this site.
So here is lyrics of the first song Gonna fly now by Bill Conti and how it makes sense to me again and again.
Trying hard now
It’s so hard now
Trying hard now
Theses lines are written about struggle of a person to succeed in material world but it is equally suited for struggle in spiritual world too. However the struggle (to bring harmony between efforts put in to make ends meet as well as efforts made to progress a little in spiritual world at the same time even with speed of a tortoise) in spiritual world is quite subtle and only after attaining a certain state one can understand that is quite harder but most rewarding too.
Oh, he’s ready
Gonna make a move, yeah
Oh, he’s ready
And makin’ moves, yeah
Getting strong now
Won’t be long now
Getting strong now
Once a person experiences synchronicity then it becomes clear that he is on right path.
Gonna fly now
Flying high now
Gonna fly, fly
After enlightenment all mystics feel a sense of ultimate freedom like a bird flying in the sky.

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. 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).
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.

Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home apart from above,
1. 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.
2. 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’.
