The silence of night….

13 Sep

Sometimes all you need in life is a night alone with yourself and the silence of it. When you consider carefully about the muteness around, lying in bed, you manage to listen attentively to your heart which speaks of million things that you crave on holding tightly with both your hands and how much you wish that they stick around with you forever. How much you hate to let it just go. Sometimes all you learn in life are the terms “get” and “lose”. You’re a winner when you ‘get’ You feel like a loser when you “don’t”, however you seek intently to grab everything that doesn’t belong to you any longer. You stick on all the sides of things that you don’t deserve and you convince yourself of being happy with the non-deserving things. The silence of the night brings back the sweet memories and also the night terror that you endlessly try staying away from. You puzzle over about everything you did in the day, wondering if you’re gonna be awake tomorrow with the same happiness that you have right now. You think about the love you get and the love you lost. You wanna go back and reverse things that are no way possible. You try to put the things in new order that are highly chaotic. When life gives you a chance to change things that are messed up, it’s always nice you adopt it. Don’t think about waiting for things to fall in place, because no matter how hard you try, certain things are impossible to happen with ease. Don’t stick around with things you don’t deserve. The best way to avoid that is to understand what you really want in life. Work on the best things that can make you happy. Grasp the significance of something that can make your life brighter.

When you ever feel again to have yourself the whole silence of the night, just learn to give a wink to all that happened in the past, tell it that it can’t change your present. Live in the moment, smile as much as you can and say “I love you life”. Think well about tomorrow. Hope for the best to fall in your hands! Hold it tight. And remember if you’re taking a rough road, it only means that you’re heading towards something BEAUTIFUL. Take that road. Live it through. See the change.

Passion And Compassion

9 Sep

We know what passion is hence it is not very difficult to understand what compassion may be. Passion means a state of biological fever – it is hot. You are almost possessed by biological, unconscious energies. You are no longer your own master, you are just a slave.
Compassion means you have transcended biology and physiology. You are no more a slave, you are master. Now you function consciously. You are not driven, pulled and pushed by unconscious forces; you can decide what you want to do with your energies. You are totally free. Then the same energy that becomes passion is transformed into compassion.
Passion is lust, compassion is love. Passion is desire, compassion is desirelessness. Passion is greed, compassion is sharing. Passion wants to use the other as a means, compassion respects the other as an end unto himself or herself. Passion keeps you tethered to earth, to mud and you never become a lotus. Compassion makes you a lotus. You start rising above the muddy world of desires, greed and anger. Compassion is a transformation of your energies.
Ordinarily you are scattered, fragmentary. Some energy is being absorbed by your anger, some by your greed, by your lust, and so on. You are left hollow, empty.
All your energy keeps on going down the drain. When all these energies are no longer being wasted they start filling your inner lake, your inner being. You become full. A great delight arises in you. When you start overflowing you have become a Buddha and you have come upon an inexhaustible source.
Compassion is a key word, but you will understand it only if you go deep into meditation. Meditation is the key to transform passion into compassion. You will have to become more conscious. Right now you are unconscious.
We live like robots… The more like a robot you are, the better you function, the better the society feels with you – because it is a society of robots. To be awakened, alert, conscious is dangerous. It is a society of blind people; to have eyes is to invite danger.
But without creating consciousness you will never be able to know the beauty, the blessing that existence has bestowed upon you. You will never know the great opportunity that has been given to you to grow, to become.
Socrates says, “If you know that you don’t know, that is a great beginning. Then it is possible for you to know.” To be aware that “I am ignorant” creates the possibility of seeking, searching in your own interiority for the truth – for your truth. Compassion is the ultimate transformation of passion. You are in passion, but you go on thinking that you are right as you are. You go on defending yourself. And anything that disturbs your comfortable, mechanical life, you go against…
When you come to me you don’t come to be awakened, you come to me so that you can dream beautiful, sweet dreams. That is your purpose in coming; that is not my purpose in being here. Once you are here you are caught. Then, slowly, slowly i start taking your dreams away. Then, slowly, slowly i go on destroying your illusions. Once your illusions are dropped, your dreams shattered, a great awakening is waiting you for you – a great awakening which makes you a Buddha. And compassionate.

-Osho
