If it is about us, nobody is closer to us than we are right now. We ourselves are the greatest object of direct investigation. If it is about observation of human nature in action, observation of how human mind works, how thoughts come and go, how thoughts build association network, and are linked to feelings, emotions, further thoughts etc., nobody…Continue reading On this field called you, you are the only authority and the only expert
As much as I am grateful to the popular, beloved spiritual teachers for their decisive, awakening words, as much as I admire the art of formulation some of them have, I do not see for myself the general and growing awakening of consciousness in humans of which Mooji, Leonard Jacobson and some others talk. I don’t believe in anything that…Continue reading The “bad man” stays the “good man’s” job
Fear is one of the greatest obstacles to a fulfilled life. By fear I mean mainly the psychological fear that hinders each creativity, development, joy, observation, reflection, contemplation and discovery. Psychological fear and anxiety may have many apparent causes. It can be deeply rooted in the subconscious, it can come from earlier experiences or from fixed, ingrown beliefs. Psychological fear…Continue reading Psychological Fear

Before we plunge into the inquiry of what is dying while living, would you please look with me at the phenomenon of life and living? Would you accompany me? Let us see what we imply by the words life and living. Is the earth living? Has the earth life? Do the rivers live? The oceans, the mountains, the trees, do…Continue reading In spite of you it goes on and not because of you
Self-centeredness seems to me to be one of the most important issues in this beautiful world. But what is this self-centeredness at all? And is it really necessary? It seems that self-centeredness starts with the main focus on the particular body, that one feels to be. This follows the focus on the particular mindset, meaning – particular thought-set that seems…Continue reading Is it only through this identification with the body and mind that we can look at everything else that is here?
There is peace only in freedom. One who lives in slavery knows no peace. Slavery stimulates restlessness, uneasiness, which is the essence of disharmony and disorder. The world we are living in today is full of suffering, misery, uneasiness; expressed in aggression, exploitation of one another, and violence. Individually and collectively, at home in the family, and there at the…Continue reading To be born in a human form is a great responsibility, because you have to be simultaneously in two fields: the man-made field, and that which is not touched by man

When Gangaji first met Papaji, he told her to stop everything. In her willingness to stop everything and just be, Gangaji saw past the roles (mother, daughter, spiritual seeker, wife, student) that she was playing, and recognized her true face. It is possible for all of us. We can live freely, resting in the truth of who we are.

There is the death that occurs every night when you drop of into sleep, the death of a relationship ending, and the death when a child leaves home. But the death I would like you to turn your attention to now is physical death, the end of…Continue reading You will go through your life awake, because you have been willing to meet the other side
The presence of who you are is so far beyond any question of enlightenment or un-enlightenment. And then you are enlightened. But it is not the I who asks the question, you see, that’s still a thought “Am I enlightened?” True inquiry is really examining all of those places where you have assigned your identity. And one of the places,…Continue reading True inquiry is examining all of those places where you have assigned your identity
Meditation is when you are not doing anything at all, when the mind is not functioning at all. That nonfunctioning of the mind is meditation – no chanting, no mantra, no image, no concentration. One just simply is. In that isness, the ego disappears, and with the ego the shadow of the ego disappears. That shadow is fear. – Osho

You can’t see, you can’t hear – certainly you have ears so you can hear, but there is nobody inside to understand it. Certainly you…Continue reading And still you go on believing that you are aware
