~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Welcome Fellow Lightworkers~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is taken from Osho's book called Intelligence.
"People who don't feel fed up with themselves are in a wrong situation, they are in danger,they will never change."
This is how any intelligent person will be! So there is nothing to be worried about - don't become serious
about it. It is good, it is perfectly okay to feel fed up. People who don't feel fed up with themselves are in a
wrong situation; they are in danger, they will never change. They will go on revolving in a wheel, they are
mechanical people. This is the first ray of consciousness in you - that you are fed up.
Who is this one who feels fed up? This awareness is you - this is the first ray of consciousness. So the way
you have lived up to now and all the things that you have done up to now are meaningless.
Now the second thing...The problem arises that now the outside is almost finished - how to go inward?
If you start struggling to go in, it will not be in. If you try and make an effort to go in, it will not be
in, because whatsoever we do with effort leads outside, takes us outside; anything done by effort moves
To go in means to relax, to let go - there is no other way. When you relax you go in, and when you start
doing something you go out. Doing means going out, nondoing means going in. That's why it is arduous.
If there were something to do I would have told you "Do this and you will be in." It is not a question of
doing. You will have to learn patience, you will have to learn infinite patience.
And just start sitting. Whenever you have time just sit silently with closed eyes not doing anything.
You are fed up with the outside? By and by, the dreams of the outside will disappear because there is no
need for the dreams to continue.
You will not think of food - if you think of food, then you know well you are not fed up. If you think
of women, know well you are not fed up. Your dreams will show you whether you are really fed up or if
there is still some lingering interest. If a lingering interest is there, then finish that too; there
is no harm in it. If you are really fed up, by and by you will start feeling that the energy is moving
inward on its own accord. You are not doing anything, you are simply sitting there and it is going in,
it is falling in.
And through that inwardness your centering will arise. Through that inwardness new interests, new
enthusiasm, new style, a new way to live will come. You cannot cultivate it - all that you can cultivate
will be just a repetition of the old...maybe a little modified here and there, but it won't make much
difference. So start sitting passively and do more passive meditations.
With love and light to all, Tara.
