Sudi Narayan's Spiritoon - Masks.. Costumes.. Personality

"You may not be aware that the word ‘personality’ comes from Greek. It means the mask. In Greek drama, in the ancient days, every actor used to have a mask. Persona means mask, and from persona has come the word personality. Unless you drop your personality you will not be able to find your individuality.
Individuality is given by existence; personality is imposed by the society. Personality is social convenience. Society cannot tolerate individuality, because individuality will not follow like a sheep. Individuality has the quality of the lion; the lion moves alone.
The sheep are always in the crowd, hoping that being in the crowd will feel cozy. Being in the crowd one feels more protected, secure. If somebody attacks, there is every possibility in a crowd to save yourself – but alone? Only the lions move alone. And every one of you is born a lion, but the society goes on conditioning you, programming your mind as a sheep. It gives you a personality, a cozy personality, nice, very convenient, very obedient.
Society wants slaves, not people who are absolutely dedicated to freedom. Society wants slaves because all the vested interests want obedience. The people who are in power, the people who have riches, the people who are the heads of religions, they all want one thing: you should not raise your head. You should live like a slave, pulled and pushed to this side and that side. You should not resist. You should not assert your being, your intelligence, your individuality."

Sudi narayan's Spiritoon - Open your eyes and See!!

"Even in fast asleep you are sleeping in Truth .Unconscious, you are in Truth; conscious, you are in Truth. So the curtain is not on Truth itself, it is on your eyes... as if you are standing before the sun with closed eyes. The curtain is not on the sun, it is just that your eyelids are functioning as a barrier. Open the eyes and the sun has always been there, just waiting for you."

"it is a question of becoming aware. It is not a question of searching; it is a question of transforming your being. Bliss is not there somewhere waiting for you to discover it; it is already here: all that you need are the eyes to see it. Those eyes are the eyes of awareness. And all meditations are devices to create awareness in you, to shake you, to shock you, so that your sleep can be broken."

Sudi Narayan's Spiritoon - If I weren't into Meditation..

"Life has to be transformed into a continuous meditation. Meditation is not a question of something one does for one hour every day, and then for twenty-three hours one can remain unaware, No. That won’t help, and that one hour will be false, pseudo; it cannot win against twenty-three hours of
mechanicalness. One has to spread meditation all over one’s life. Walking, eating, talking, listening, in whatsoever you are doing, be there in tremendous attentiveness, as if that’s all, as if life and death depend on it, as if there is no other moment, as if the next moment is not going to come.
Then the whole energy pulsates in the present moment. That pulsation is subodha, and that’s what brings one to reality, to that which is. And it is the only thing that can give bliss, joy, what Jesus calls the kingdom of god."

- Osho, Don't Look before you leap [1978], Chapter 28
