Beyond Mind is True Mastery

Awakening, Presence

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea — and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds to awareness.

The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and disidentify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man. Now you can do and act on only that which makes you more joyous, fulfills you, gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.

But this is possible only if the master in you is awake. Right now the master is fast asleep. And the mind, the servant, is playing the role of master. And the servant is created by the outside world, it follows the outside world and its laws. Once your awareness becomes a flame, it burns up the whole slavery that the mind has created. There is no blissfulness more precious than freedom, than being a master of your own destiny. Osho

The adventure of awakening to your true self is steady and constant. There may be flashes of insight, where the veil drops away, and suddenly everything makes sense. Then the film of physicality covers your inner vision and the slumber of life on planet Earth takes hold.

What if you befriended your ‘mind' and provided a respite from the external ravages of opinions, expectations and teachings? What if, like a still and silent pool, you provided an oasis, a respite, where Life could move through you? What if your grasping and seeking ceased, and all that was left was the pulsating rhythm of your breath in communion with the undulating syncopation of Life?

Rest in being, my friend, and the emptiness will still your yearning and permeate your presence . . . infinitely.
