Mystic Mantra: Unburden the subconscious

Osho suggests dynamic meditation to come face to face with one’s reality

Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most. Nothing ever exists entirely on its own; everything exists in relation to everything else. Every human being is the author of his /her own health or disease. If you are facing the right direction, all you need to do is keep on walking. Our life exists between two polarities: being and doing; how we are and how we behave. We may be pure in being, but what matters is how we behave.

Our behaviour in our daily wakefulness is not authentic. It is full of hypocrisy. When talking to our friends, relatives, even strangers, we hide feelings and thoughts. We express what will be socially acceptable. This way the entire society lives a fake life. Osho tells a significant story: A mother and daughter both walked in their sleep. One night, the mother got up and went into the garden. Her daughter also got up in her sleep and walked into the garden. As soon as the old woman saw her daughter, she shouted, “B***h! You’ve taken away my youth. From the time you were born, I started growing old. You are my enemy. If you hadn’t been born, I’d still be young!”

When the girl saw her mother, she shouted, “You wicked woman! Because of you my life has become bondage. You have always been a rock in the flow of my life. You are a heavy chain on my life!” At that mome-nt, the cock cro-wed and they awoke. Seeing the girl, the mother said, “Dear! Why did you get up so early? You may catch a cold. Come, let’s go inside!”

The girl touched her mother’s feet, as she did every morning, and said, “Mother! Your health is not good. You shouldn’t get up so early. Come and rest!” Osho suggests dynamic meditation to come face to face with one’s reality. We can breathe in such a way that whatever we have suppressed in our unconscious mind rises to the surface. In catharsis, we can express it fully and become free of it — totally unburdened of emotional baggage. In this baggage we carry so many unlived emotions. One is always guilty about so many things.
