Awareness, the Chariot of Spirit.

Awareness

The veil of illusion, or maya, that has been keeping you from perceiving reality as it is, is starting to burn away. The fire is not the heated fire of passion, but the cool flame of awareness. As it burns the veil, the face of a very delicate and childlike buddha becomes visible.

The awareness that is growing in you now is not the result of any conscious “doing”, nor do you need to struggle to make something happen. Any sense you might have had that you’ve been groping in the dark is dissolving now, or will be dissolving soon. Let yourself settle, and remember that deep inside you are just a witness, eternally silent, aware and unchanged.

A channel is now opening from the circumference of activity to that center of witnessing. It will help you to become detached, and a new awareness will lift the veil from your eyes.

Osho’s Teachings

Mind can never be intelligent – only no-mind is intelligent. Only no-mind is original and radical. Only no-mind is revolutionary – revolution in action.

This mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living – at the minimum. You don’t live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim.

Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises – clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is.

Everlasting

Everlasting

Thou art hidden from us, though the heavens are filled  With Thy Light, which is brighter than sun and moon !

Thou art hidden, yet revealest our hidden secrets ! 

Thou art the Source that causes our rivers to flow. 

Thou art hidden in Thy essence, but seen by Thy bounties. 

Thou art like the water, and we like the mill- stone. 

Thou art like the wind, and we like the dust ; The wind is unseen, but the dust is seen by all. Thou art the Spring, and we the sweet green garden ;

Spring is not seen, though its gifts are seen. Thou art as the Soul, we as hand and foot ; Soul instructs hand and foot to hold and take. 

Thou art as Reason, we like the tongue ; 'Tis reason that teaches the tongue to speak. 

Thou art as Joy, and we are laughing ; 

The laughter is the consequence of the joy. 

Our every motion every moment testifies. 

For it proves the presence of the Everlasting God.
