Spiritoon - Who You Are...

Chetna, Maya and I were in Zorba Studios, Dallas, TX last week to participate in an Osho meditation camp lead by Bodhisattva Swami Anand Arun. With many wonderful sannyasins and friends from various parts of the world, it was an amazing 3 days of Love, Laughter and Meditation ( and lots of snow!) in the presence of magnificent Boddhi being Swami Arun. Yes, Dallas did get several inches of snow!

In a way, I think of Bodhi beings are those who remain in this "world" in order to help fellow travelers like you and me. They constantly remind us of our true nature (who we really are) and so skillfully inspire and direct each seeker towards his/her awakening. We all sleep so deeply that Osho's "earth shattering" meditations can only shake us from this long sleep of many lives. Thank you Osho! Thank you Arun Swamiji!

I am reminded of Osho's words from the book "Dogen, the Zen Master: A Search and a Fullfillment, Chapter 7. Live One Day As a Buddha"

".. do you understand that you are moving towards death? Each moment death is coming closer and closer. And have you gathered anything that you will be able to take with you when you die?

Except meditation, you cannot take any of your possessions with you. All that is outside of you will be left behind. Only the inner flame ... if you have found it, if you have become conscious of it, then there is no death for you. But if you are not conscious of it you will think also, as others are thinking, that you are dead.

It is simply a question of thinking. If you know yourself exactly, you are never dead. But you never go inwards. You have simply forgotten that there is an immense space waiting for you, and that is your real home. All our efforts are efforts to make you acquainted again with your real home, which will not be burned on a funeral pyre, which will remain until eternity, in different forms or in formlessness. That is your buddhahood."

Spiritoons are created with immense LOVE and with inspirations from my Beloved Master OSHO and reflects his vision for a new way of living based in Awareness and the 'Here and Now'.
