The first step enter in to death is meditation without meditation you do not enter in to death because this is first step who want to enter in to death. and meditation is the way of entering in to death with live body mind and soul meditation is no completely gives death for your mind but meditation is give you eye which that you see the reality of your body mind and soul if you understand and your vision concentrated on your existence then you see that is beyond life and death that is you existence. You do not born and you do not die death is related to your body if your existence joined with your body then very most important death for you. But if you are us proper meditation then your existence understand and enter in new path that path is going to beyond you life and death that is very mysterious for your mind who dose not understand you and your consciousness.This is much the definition of a mystical person, as we have seen. The view is that of God's overall workings, the whole field of human relations, the level of consciousness of the earth's population, rather than specific news headlines or the operations of individuals. The mystical person does watch detailed events, but does not become involved, since that would mean dealing with specific circumstances or being led to take action thinking that God isn't doing things right. That is for others on different paths. In the world of the mystical person there are no errors since everything is God, and nothing has to be taken care of; rather, such a person maintains a high level of consciousness to help facilitate the overall advancement of human awareness. Therefore, the mystical person sees only perfection and beauty. Now, this is not just a head-in-the-sand existence. As we saw earlier, quantum physics shows us that things in the subatomic level exist as waves of possibilities, and collapse into different particle forms depending on the individual seeing or measuring them. There is one truth overall, but many ways of seeing it or arriving at it, What the mystical person sees is just as real as what the pessimist or the agnostic sees, each one carving out a specific reality that is suitable for the individual pathway at this point in life. There are no mistakes and there are no errors, for all is God. "Twixt the optimist and pessimist/ the difference is droll./ The optimist sees the donut,/ while the pessimist sees the hole." But it is still a donut, and the hole is not a negative but a way of frying it completely. The mystical person sees no lacks left over from the past or hopes for better situations in the future. The only thing seen is the Present, the true Reality, with acceptance of what it has regardless of what that might be. Therefore, all that is seen is the spiritual aspect of anything, through awareness that the spiritual encompasses all there is. Achieving this.
There is a story which I like very much of two fakirs: The two fakirs, the old guru and the young disciple, were returning to their hut in Japan for the rainy season. For eight months of the year they traveled from village to village singing the praises of the Lord, but in the rainy season they returned to their hut. When they reached the bank of the lake where the hut stood, they found the roof fallen to the ground by a violent storm that had struck just the night before. It was not only a very small hut, but on top of that, half the roof was on the ground.
There were ominous clouds in the sky and darkness all around. Nothing could be done for they were far away from any other habitation. The younger sannyasin couldn’t contain him. ”Look at this. We kill ourselves singing His glories and this is how we are rewarded. What use is all that prayer and worship? What do we get in return? Rich sinners are lying blissfully in their mansions while the gale has carried away the roof of two poor fakirs. The storm is also His.” Having given vent to all his rage, he turned to the guru and what did he see?
There knelt the guru with folded hands looking up at the sky, his eyes filled with tears of joy and supreme contentment. He was singing,”Oh Lord, Your compassion knows no bounds. The tempest could have blown the whole roof away and you must have stopped it half-way for us. Only you can be so thoughtful.” Then they both entered the hut. Though they seem to enter the same hut, they are different people: one is contented, the other dis-contented. They both slept. The younger fakir kept tossing and turning, grumbling and worrying about the rain, constantly complaining and filled with anger.
But the guru slept very soundly. When he got up at 4 a.m. he wrote a song. He could see the moon above through the half-open roof. He said in his song,”Oh Lord, had we known before, we would not have troubled your tempest to rip off half the roof. We would have done it ourselves. We have been so foolish, but now we can see the wonderful work of the storm; we can watch the moon over the hut! How close is your sky, and we shut it off with a roof! Your moon came and went so many times and we remained behind a roof.
We did not know, please forgive us! Had we known we wouldn’t have put the storm to so much trouble?”
A man who can sing like this under the most direct circumstances is truly a contented person. But he who becomes contented out of helplessness follows the path of impotent and vigorless people; if only they could find contentment before having to lose everything then they wouldn’t have to lose anything; for you cannot steal anything from a contented man. You may take away his belongings but not his contentment. His inner equilibrium cannot be disturbed. His true possessions are all within.
awareness requires dedication and commitment, but then the intuitions come, and the rewards of peace and beauty are worth the effort. One way to put ourselves into this frame of mind is to cease making comments or judgments about things we see happening or being talked about, even internally and mentally. We find that we can pull back out of any personal involvement or self-interest as a participant into the observer state, seeing the overall rather than the detail, feeling no need to jump in and arrange specific details. Instead, we just observe the complete view, which includes everyone's physical forms and egos acting out in their specific arenas. We just make a point of seeing the overall aspects due to the spiritual Selves within us and everyone and everything else. We see only the highest and best, not the lesser. And we can see the creativity of God in all of it. This type of detachment helps us get away from the concept of "my thoughts" and "my opinions" as it keeps things in a dispassionate nature. It also helps us see the picture in context, rather than just specific and limited points. Thoughts and opinions are just spiritual vanities anyway. You cannot rationalize or think your way into higher levels of consciousness; rather, you have to let go, let God, and just experience things, "being" rather than "learning about." We actually need to empty out the mind, rather than put more thoughts into it. We deal in a non-linear, non-cause- and-effect state of oneness with God. We do not flounder about in the ego's world of separation and cluttered thoughts about specifics. Ideas tend to flow following the paths of propensity created by intention according to the level of consciousness, and we try to keep such high levels of consciousness that feelings of love and support exist instead of thoughts from the materialistic world of conflict. If we remove importance and attachment from worldly mental operations, they tend to stop and then we can meditate on the intuitions that come from God. Note that the mystical person is indeed aware of receiving intuitions directly from God. Anyone can receive such intuitions, but often the noise of the world or of mind chatter covers up the necessary awareness, or it is just not the right path for people at that moment. Whatever the reason, many people seek religious teaching from other sources such as from groups or from a strong leader. Some such leaders and ministers are spiritually strong and guide their people well. Others put barriers between people and God, and generally, any element that separates man from God or puts any barriers between him and the sensing of the Presence is a man-made fallacy. Being a mystical person, therefore, requires no memberships (either in churches or in special groups), rituals, secret knowledge, special clothing, specific worship practices, classes, approvals, or codes of conduct, especially when there is the implied threat of punishment or suffering if these are not rigidly adhered to. And certainly there is no money involved at all. A true spiritual teacher already possessing everything of importance in life does not need to deal in money. Naturally, religious ministers and other such dedicated folks need to support themselves in the physical world as they deal in church affairs since religions are organized businesses, after all. But spirituality, someone dealing directly with God, is a different matter, and many ministers do give of themselves freely in purely spiritual affairs. But the mystical person, having no such responsisbilities to others, is happy to share insights with everyone within the harmony and oneness of life in God with no thought of remuneration.
God. There is a non-duality between the Self and God, and, therefore, the Self can be the source of bliss and peace, for when we realize that we are one with the Presence, nothing more can be needed or imagined as we lose ourselves in Its indefinable joy. The second step, Meditation, is really two: Meditation and Contemplation. Meditation, the time we spend quietly and alone, is the best method for receiving inspiration and intuition directly from the Source. It involves becoming aware of the spirituality latent within us that presents itself when we turn inward in peacefulness, getting our worldly egos out of the way. In meditation, we replace the constant chatter of everyday thoughts running almost unchecked through our brains, with impressions from the Self about spiritual creation, positive relations with others, happiness, and peace, and allow Intuition to bring us inspiration directly from the Source in the silence. We let the Self be our teacher through its communion with God. Through it, we are all-inclusive, experiencing the overall picture of life and its spiritual side rather than everyday worldly details, and seeing everything in a oneness of love, therefore appreciating and enjoying all things due just to the fact that they are. Contemplation is the way we live those realizations in daily life among others. It keeps us in a high level of consciousness as we leave our sanctuary and go out into the world in our daily activities so that we continue to see the spiritual side of everything and receive ongoing intuitions from the Source. It is our way of looking at and living life in our actions, thoughts, and relationships with others and with nature. Meditation helps us plan our way of life; contemplation is the actual living of it.
Osho: You do not exist even in dream. You must sometimes have dreamed a dream within a dream. You dream that you are going to bed, you have fallen asleep and you are dreaming a dream.
There is an old Chinese story: A woodcutter was cutting wood in a jungle. He was tired, so he came down from the tree and fell asleep. He dreamed that nearby lay buried a great treasure of diamonds and gold in huge pots that were lightly covered with dirt. In his dream he thought that he would come at night and remove the treasure quietly.
If he removed it in the daytime he might be caught. Hewas a poor man and the treasure was worth millions. When he awoke, he buried a stick to mark the place and returned home. When it became dark, he went back to the spot. He found the stick in place but the pots had been removed. He went back and told his wife,”I don’t understand whether I dreamed about the treasure or actually saw it. The stick is there all right, and there are holes where the pots were, so it is certainly not just a dream. But someone has removed the pots.”
His wife replied,”It must be a dream. You must also have dreamed that you went out at night and saw the stick in the ground, and that there was an empty place where the pots were supposed to be. So go back to sleep and sleep in peace.” But it happened that another man also dreamed that he saw these very pots buried in the same place, and that a woodcutter had buried a stick to mark the place. When he got up from his sleep he ran to the place. He found the stick in the ground and also the vessels underneath!
He removed the pots and brought them home. He told his wife,”I cannot understand whether I dreamed a dream or I actually saw a vision. Whatever it is, I have brought the pots home. They are proof that it is not just a dream. I must actually have seen the woodcutter burying the stick and therefore I knew where the treasure was.” His wife said,”The pots are here. That much is clear. But if you actually saw the woodcutter marking the spot, it isn’t right that we should keep this treasure.
Take the pots to the king and let him decide.” He was an honest man, so he took the pots to the king’s court where the woodcutter had already lodged a complaint. The king was perplexed. Finally he told them,”It is very difficult to decide whether you were asleep or awake, so I shall divide the treasure equally between you both, for the pots are very much there.” So he divided the treasure between them. That night the king told his wife,”A very strange thing happened today: Two men dreamed the same dream.
Now it is difficult to decide whether they dreamed or whether they really saw the treasure. But the pots of treasure were actually there, so I divided them equally between them.” The queen said,”Go to sleep, you must be dreaming.” For thousands of years this was discussed in China – did they dream it or not? Who actually dreamed? But this is what happens by the time we reach the end of life. All of life seems like a dream. It is difficult to decide whether the stick was really there and whether the pots were really buried; whether the wife and children ever existed, or friends and foes; whether there was poverty or riches; whether there was conflict and competition; whether we really lost or won, were successful or unsuccessful. At the time of death all events pass before a man like a dream. Did we really live, or was it only a dream? Those who have known say,”This is a dream dreamed with open eyes.” It is a dream because it has no relation to that which is. This is an intermediary state of imagination; it is merely a thought.
It makes no difference whether you saw it when asleep or when awake. The characteristic of a dream is that it is here one moment and gone the next.
At the time of death all is lost. Within this dream you see another dream that is called the ego. You consider yourself the doer, the author of the dreams.
You are filled with conceit, which all the world can see; only you do not see it. Everyone else is in the same state, never seeing their own, but seeing
everyone else’s ego
