Love an Osho insight on 104.9FM on 10th November.

Welcome To Osho Insights / Osho Dhyan by Osho Universal.

Back Ground Music with introduction:

Chiniji has the music or we can play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgobx1CiFkw

Chini: Friends it is that time of the week when we have Sw. Atma Paritosh from Osho Universal with us. He prefers to be called as Paritosh. Paritosh has been initiated in to Osho Sannyas by Sw. Anand Arun and spent years meditating under guidance of his master Sw. Anand Arun who is a long time direct disciple of Osho. Inspired by Sw. Anand Aurn Paritosh has established Osho Universal a 501c3 registered Non Profit Organization and is working diligently to bring awareness of mediation around the Globle. Paritosh Says just like we need good food and exercise is required for Good Health, Mediation and love are required for mind and soul. He also say mediation is not being against life it is something one adds to his daily life so that one can enjoy life to it full capacity. World and Spirituality are not two separate things. Body is Gross spirit and Spirit is subtle body.

With this I would like to invite Paritosh. Paritosh can you tell us what are we going to talk about  today.

Partitosh: Last week we were talking about divine love. will continue on the same topic today.

We will start with a small story a young man came to Master asking about god. Master asked him if he has any experience of love any memory of love. The man said I am a bramachari I Took a vow of celibacy years ago I am monk and I have renounced the worldly affairs more than 10 years ago, I do not want to fall in worldly Attachment you tell me about god I want to know him. 

Master: said “try to remember some experience of love, affection from childhood. Young Monk arrogantly replied As I said I have left the worldly affairs please you tell me about relating to god. “Master said I am really sorry if you had any experience of love I would have been able to help you, some bridge could have been built between you and good but without love is impossible.

CHINIJI: So Paritosh what is this love, is this something one is born with, Does one have to do some special sadhana for it, how is it different then ordinary love the most of us experience in life. Can you share Osho’s insight on love .

Paritosh: Yes Chiniji, It depends. There are as many loves as there are people. Love is a hierarchy, from the lowest rung to the highest, from physical attraction to super-consciousness or devotion. There are many, many layers, many planes of love. It all depends on you. If you are existing on the lowest rung, you will have a totally different idea of love than the person who is existing on the highest rung. Adolf Hitler will have one idea of love, Gautam Buddha another; and they will be diametrically opposite, because they are at two extremes.

Physical attraction is one level of love that animals also experience but we humans can fall below animals like for dominance over other or to possess the other we humans can lie, cheat play politics. 

Chiniji: So at lowest level we can go below animals, we lie, cheat and play politics to dominate and control and gain power over the other some how.

Yes Chiniji, Absolutely correct, in fact no animals can lie or cheat or play politic they cannot express anger if they love the other, they cannot love if they have anger in them, what is in so is out anger then anger love then love no hidden agendas they would fight but not be a politician to gain power over others.

So At the lowest, love is a kind of politics, power politics. Wherever love is contaminated by the idea of domination, it is politics. Whether you call it politics or not is not the question, it is political. And millions of people never know anything about love except this politics – the politics that exists between husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. It is politics, the whole thing is political: you want to dominate the other, you enjoy domination.

And love is nothing but politics sugar-coated, a bitter pill sugar-coated. You talk about love but the deep desire is to exploit the other. And I am not saying that you are doing it deliberately or consciously – you are not that conscious yet. You cannot do it deliberately; it is an unconscious mechanism.

Hence so much possessiveness and so much jealousy become a part, an intrinsic part, of your love. That’s why love creates more misery than joy. Ninety-nine percent of it is bitter; there is only that one percent of sugar that you have coated on top of it. And sooner or later that sugar disappears.

When you are in the beginning of a love affair, those honeymoon days, you taste something sweet. Soon that sugar wears off, and the realities start appearing in stark nakedness and the whole thing becomes ugly.

Pallavi: I think that is the reason people are afraid of being in love or falling in love ?

Paritosh : Yes Pallavi that is the reason 

Millions of people have decided not to love human beings any more. It is better to love a dog, a cat, a parrot; it is better to love a car – because you can dominate them well, and the other never tires to dominate you. It is simple; it is not as complex as it is going to be with human beings.

At a cocktail party the hostess couldn’t help overhearing the conversation of a suave gentleman.

“Oh, I adore her. I worship her,” declared the gentleman.

“I would too if she were mine,” agreed his friend.

“The way she walks and swishes. Her beautiful big brown eyes, her head so proud and erect…”

“You’re very fortunate,” commented his friend.

“And do you know what really thrills me? The way she nibbles my ear.”

“Sir,” the hostess interjected. “I couldn’t help listening to those affectionate words. In this day of numerous divorces I admire a man who so passionately loves his wife.”

“My wife?” said the gentleman, surprised. “No – my champion race horse!”

People are falling in love with horses, dogs, animals, machines, things. Why? Because to be in love with human beings has become an utter hell, a continuous conflict – nagging, always at each other’s throats.

This is the lowest form of love. Nothing is wrong with it if you can use it as a stepping-stone, if you can use it as a meditation. If you can watch it, if you try to understand it, in that very understanding you will reach another rung, you will start moving upwards.

Only at the highest peak, when love is not a relationship any more, when love becomes a state of your being, the lotus opens totally and great perfume is released – but only at the highest peak. At the lowest, love is just a political relationship. At the highest, love is a religious state of consciousness.

Pallavi: What is the difference in love of meditator ?

Buddha loves, Jesus loves, but their love demands nothing in return. Their love is given for the sheer joy of giving it; it is not a bargain. Hence the radiant beauty of it, hence the transcendental beauty of it. It surpasses all the joys that you have known.

When I talk about love, I am talking about love as a state. It is unaddressed: you don’t love this person or that person, you simply love. You are love. Rather than saying that you love somebody, it will be better to say you are love. So whosoever is capable of partaking, can partake. For whosoever is capable of drinking out of your infinite sources of being, you are available – you are available unconditionally.

That is possible only if love becomes more and more meditative.

You know :

Medicine and meditation come from the same root. Love as you know it is a kind of disease: it needs the medicine of meditation. If it passes through meditation, it is purified. And the more purified it is, the more ecstatic.

Osho Insight audio:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iffg7Ek6jGg

Pallavi: As Osho described in very simple language the difficulty of being in love with human and not reducing them down to things? How would one achieve the love that does not reduce the other to a thing? 

Very simple test for true height of love is if you can find reason for your love then it can still be purified and raise higher if there is no reason then one has reached the highest peak of love, love becomes unaddressed it just remains like a flowing river whoever is ready come and quenches the thirst. 

Chiniji: Can you explain what is the feeling to be in such state of being? 

Paritosh: My words will not be enough to express my feeling Lets play a Song of lover.

Talking about Devine love it reminds of a beautiful song by Manish Vyas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E3njLChSOQ  

 

Paritosh: So this is the feeling when we reach closer to our heart. Decorate and welcome he is going to descend. The master of this mind, this body, this heart is going to descend. My eyes are filled with tears, Now this journey is to end. Search of many years may be lifetimes is about to end. Prepare this heart, this body, this home that I call I.

When we reach from our mind to our heart this is the feeling.

Our studio number is 972 235 5555

Once Again our number to reach studio is 972 235 5555.

Love is painful it is difficult but it does not mean we should give up on it. Keep learning and keep fall until you learn to be in it.

Many us have closed the door of heart. It reminds of a story of Nassrudin. He went to learn to swim and first day he slipped in the lake and got so scared that he told his teacher now I will only come back after I have learned swimming.

Question: How do we know this is the age that one should start meditating?

Well there is no age it is about maturity, if children’s grow they drop their old toys they loose the joy in those toys that they played with when they were toddlers. Many times I have heard people it is still not time for me. Only when one see all you do in this life death will take it all away. Just the realization and one automatically wants to know what is this death, is it possible to find out. Mediation is process through which one can unveil secretes of secretes.

So one who are engaged in world and only world it is good, continue to enjoy nothing wrong in it. There is no hurry.

IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP and MEDITATION FOR A DEEPLY REJUVENATING SLEEP

IMPORTANCE OF RIGHT SLEEP

The thing which has been harmed the most in the development of human civilization is sleep. From the day man discovered artificial light, his sleep has become very troubled. And as more and more gadgets started falling into man’s hands, he started feeling that sleep is an unnecessary thing, too much time is wasted in it. The time when we are asleep is a complete waste. So the less sleep we can do with the better. It does not occur to people that sleep has any kind of contribution to the deeper processes of life. They think that the time spent sleeping is time gone to waste, so the less they sleep the better; the more quickly they reduce the amount of sleep, the better.

We have not even noticed that the cause behind all the illnesses, all the disorders that have entered man’s life is lack of sleep. The person who cannot sleep rightly cannot live rightly. Sleep is not a waste of time. The eight hours of sleep are not being wasted; rather, because of those eight hours, you are able to stay awake for sixteen hours. Otherwise you would not be able to stay awake all that time.

During those eight hours life-energy is accumulated, your life gets revitalized, the centers of your brain and heart calm down and your life functions from your navel center. For those eight hours of sleep you have again become one with nature and with existence. That is why you become revitalized.

Sleep needs to come back into man’s life. Really, there is no alternative, no other step, for the psychological health of humanity than that sleep should be made compulsory by law for the next one or two hundred years.

It is very important for a meditator to see to it that he sleeps properly and enough. And one more thing needs to be understood – right sleep will be different for everybody. It will not be equal because the body has needs which are different for everyone...according to age and to many other elements.

Perhaps you may not be aware that the latest research says that there cannot be one fixed time for everyone to wake up. It is always said that to wake up at five o’clock in the morning is good for everyone. This is absolutely wrong and unscientific. It is not good for everyone; it may be good for some people but it may be harmful for other people. Within twenty-four hours, for about three hours, the body temperature of each person goes down. And those three hours are the hours of deepest sleep. If the person is woken up during those three hours, his whole day will be spoiled and his whole energy will be disturbed.

Generally these three hours are between two to five in the morning. For most people these three hours are between two to five in the morning, but it is not the case with everyone. For some people their body temperature is low until six o’clock, for some it is low until seven. For some their temperature starts becoming normal at four in the morning. So if someone wakes up within these hours of low temperature, all twenty-four hours of his day will be spoiled and there will be harmful effects. Only when a person’s temperature starts rising to a normal level is it time for him to wake up.

Normally it is alright for everybody to wake up with the rising sun, because as the sun rises everyone’s temperature starts rising. But this is not a rule, there are some exceptions. For some people it may be necessary to sleep a little later than sunrise, because each individual’s body temperature rises at a different time, at a different pace. So each person should find out how many hours of sleep he needs and what is a healthy time for him to get up, and that is the rule for him...whatever the scriptures may say, whatever the gurus may say. There is no need to listen to them at all.

For right sleep, the deeper and the longer you are able to sleep, the better. But I am telling you to sleep, not to keep on lying on the bed! Lying down on your bed is not sleep!

To wake up when you feel it is healthy for you to wake up should be the rule for you. Usually it happens along with the sunrise but it is possible that this does not happen to you. There is no need to be afraid or worried or to think that you are a sinner and to be afraid of going to hell. Many people who get up early in the morning go to hell and many people who get up late are living in heaven. None of this has any relation whatsoever to being spiritual or unspiritual. But right sleep certainly does have a relationship with it.

So each person should discover what is the best arrangement for him. For three months each person should experiment with his work, with his sleep and with his diet, and should find out what are the most healthy, most peaceful and most blissful rules for him.

And everyone should make his own rules. No two persons are alike, so no common rule is ever applicable to anybody. Whenever someone tries to apply a common rule, it has a bad effect. Each person is an individual. Each person is unique and incomparable. Only he is like himself, there is no other person like him anywhere on the earth. So no rule can be a rule for him until he finds out what the rules for his own life-processes are.

MEDITATION FOR A DEEPLY REJUVENATING SLEEP

You may not be sleeping well in the night. Very few people are sleeping well, so when you have not slept well in the night you are a little tired.... If that is the case, then do something with your sleep. It should be made deeper. Time is not much of a question – you can sleep for eight hours, and if it is not deep you will feel hungry for sleep, starved – depth is the question. 

Every night before you go to sleep do a small technique, and that will help tremendously. Put the lights off, sit in your bed ready to sleep, but sit for fifteen minutes.Close your eyes and then start any monotonous nonsense sound, for example: la, la, la – and wait for the mind to supply new sounds. The only thing to be remembered is those sounds or words should not be of any language that you know. If you know English, German, Italian, then they should not be of Italian, German, English. Any other language is allowed that you don't know – Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese. But if you know Japanese then it is not allowed, then Italian is wonderful.

Speak any language that you don’t know. You will be in a difficulty for few seconds only for the first day, because how do you speak a language you don’t know? It can be spoken, and once it starts, any sounds, nonsense words, just to put the conscious off and allow the unconscious to speak.... When the unconscious speaks, the unconscious knows no language.

It is a very, very old method. It comes from the Old Testament. It was called in those days glossolalia and a few churches in America still use it. They call it “talking in tongues”. And it is a wonderful method, one of the most deep and penetrating into the unconscious. You start by saying “la, la, la,” and then anything that comes you go on. Just for the first day you will feel it is a little difficult. Once it comes, you know the knack of it. Then for fifteen minutes, use the language that is coming to you, and use it as a language; in fact you are talking in it. This will relax the conscious so deeply.

Fifteen minutes – and you then just simply lie down and go to sleep. Your sleep will become deeper. Within weeks you will feel a depth in your sleep, and in the morning you will feel completely fresh.
