I am an artist and art teacher. I am always looking for inner peace.

I´ve been meditating for years now till I found Osho: A Course in Meditation. Which had been an awesome way to open to myself, to get to my Self.

I decided not to write anything-just trust in my in-tuition for going step by step into the 21 days experience. I was waiting for the moment to hear the exercise, to practice, to go into the new experience with all my senses and mind and being. I trust my IN-tuition a 100 percent now, I let myself go with it.

Furthermore, I am always me and the watcher: everything I do I try to transform myself in the very act, in the sound, in the taste. Not just to feel, which I was already experimenting, but to BE THE TASTE. I am the watcher and the act of watching and the watched object.

It´s like a new Universe is unfolding for me. The whole existence is actually unfolding its miracle just for me: I am the center, the heart, the initial Big Bang as well as the border, the limit, the final whisper.

All my love to OSHO for opening that giant door.

My name is Erin Anshu and I would like to share with you how Osho and his courses in meditation have changed my life!  I am a healer and sometimes the hardest person to heal is yourself!

Before this meditation i was not very grounded, I did other meditations and mindfulness practices, and they helped, but only a little.  I was angry with myself and angry with society in general.  I did not feel connected to Source and I did not love myself in a true way.  I was struggling daily with triggers and had a hard time being compassionate with myself, in all ways.  My self-talk was riddled with doubt, insecurities and fear.  I felt as if loving myself and peace with myself were goals akin to my personally traveling into space!

Then I opened my inbox one morning and there was my first day of meditation from Osho’s free 21-day course.  At first, thoughts of doubt crept in and tried to whisper in my ear that this wouldn’t work, you couldn’t sit still for this long and all other negating factors my ego felt like sharing! I kindly told those thoughts to take a hike, and began my first meditation.

Dear OSHO blog reader!

I am Angela. I am born in Bulgaria. I am a social scientist. My main working tools are my mind; my instincts and my intuition.

I earn my bread by communicating with a lot of people; collecting tones of data; and processing for a shortest possible time all the information gathered. Sometimes my mind is powered so intensely that I could not stop thinking and thinking and thinking. I tend recurrently to go back and to think over negative memories and images from my daily encounters.

Sensitivity helps me a lot in my work with people. But being too sensitive makes me susceptible to distress. I found “Osho A Course in Mediation” just on time.

The people who are going to be powerful need to be prepared. Your education should prepare you to be in power, in such a way that power cannot corrupt you, that you cannot misuse it.

(A Vision of Osho)

THE PEOPLE WHO are going to be powerful need to be prepared.

Right now, up to now, for thousands of years you have never prepared anybody. If somebody is going to be a boxer you don’t just push him into the ring and say: “Start!” He has to learn. If somebody is going to be a swordsman, it will take him years. Otherwise he won’t even know how to hold the sword — using it and fighting with it will be impossible. First he will have to find out how to take it out from its sheath, how to hold it. It needs training. You don’t just give a guitar to somebody who has never seen the instrument before and expect him to be an Amadeus Mozart or a Ravi Shankar.

Now this is your fault.

These people who are in power, have you trained them? Has anybody ever thought that the people who will be holding so much power need certain qualities so that they don’t misuse power? It is not their fault.

Don't do anything. Sit. Let thoughts settle themselves.
The more open you become, the more innocent, the more childlike you become

The more open you become, the more innocent, the more childlike you become, the more the winds of existence start flowing in and out of you.

The more you are knowing and have the gesture of knowledge, the more you are closed. Then you don’t allow the winds of existence to enter you, then you are always distrustful, you don’t trust life. A fool is one who goes on trusting; a fool is one who goes on trusting against all his experience. You deceive him, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you. Then you will say that he is a fool, he does not learn. His trust is tremendous; his trust is so pure that nobody can corrupt it.

In darkness, the body reveals itself

In darkness, everything else disappears because you cannot see.

Only you and the sound are there. That’s why, in all good restaurants, light is avoided; sharp light is avoided. They are candle-lit. Whenever a restaurant is candle-lit, taste is deeper: you eat well and you taste more. The fragrance surrounds you. If there is very bright light the taste is no longer there. The eyes make everything public.

All that is beautiful is inner, and the inner means privacy.

Detoxing Mind and Body
Detoxing Mind and Body

“Detoxing the body to find inner harmony. Dispense with moderation food to the body and to the mind repose.”

Health  has two aspects to it. One is the physical, the other is the spiritual. The body is your temple — don’t neglect it. Your foolish, stupid ascetics have been telling you to neglect it — not only to neglect but to destroy your body. Pythagoras is not an ascetic: he is a man of understanding.

Comparison is a very foolish attitude, because each person is unique and incomparable.

“Jealousy is Born out of comparison” Osho. And we have been taught to compare, we have been conditioned to compare, always compare. Somebody else has a better house, somebody else has a more beautiful body, somebody else has more money, somebody else has a more charismatic personality. Compare, go on comparing yourself with everybody else you pass by, and great jealousy will be the outcome; it is the by-product of the conditioning for comparison.

Touch Has Something That Eyes Cannot Give.

All that is beautiful is inner, and the inner means privacy. 

Do one thing one day: run the bath and then switch on and off the light. When there is darkness you will hear the water falling more clearly, the sound will be sharp. When the light is on, the sound will be not so sharp. What happens in darkness?
