The Decisive Moment is at Hand

5 May 1970 pm in

As a large number of questions have been received in the last three days I would like today to answer briefly as many of them as possible. A friend has said that when Vivekananda asked Ramakrishna, "Have you seen God?" Ramakrishna said in answer, "Yes, I have seen God as I see you right now." And the friend wants to know if he can put the same question to me. Firstly, Vivekananda, while putting the question, did not ask Ramakrishna's permission, he put the question straight. And you are not doing so, you are only wanting to know if you---OSHO NAMAN

Please go for today's meditation filled with a tremendous amount of hope and will, and know that you are going to make it. Know that as the sun has risen and flooded the earth with light, so your own light will flood you inside. As flowers have bloomed this morning, so will the flowers of bliss bloom within you. One who begins his pilgrimage with full hope reaches his goal, and one who calls with all his thirst attains to God. Those who can should meditate in a standing position. Friends sitting near those who stand up will do well to move away---OSHO NAMAN

Question 1 FRIEND ASKS: DOES ONE ATTAIN TO MEDITATION THROUGH GOD'S GRACE? It will be useful to understand this thing, because it has led to lots of misunderstandings and mistakes. A good number of people have thought that if meditation is attained through God's grace then there is no need to do anything, and they did not do a thing. You are grievously mistaken if you mean by God's grace that you don't have to do anything. Another misunderstanding that flows from it is that God's grace is not equally available to everybody, that some---OSHO NAMAN

Let us now sit for meditation. There is going to be some change in the schedule for meditation from tomorrow. From tomorrow, mornings will be devoted to meditation alone and evenings to discourses exclusively. But this day we will follow the day's schedule. Take your seats apart, keeping a distance from one another. But do not go far, because this morning I noticed that friends who had moved far were deprived of the benefits of the psychic atmosphere that is being created here. So don't go far, and yet keep some distance from one another without---OSHO NAMAN

Question 1 A FRIEND HAS ASKED IF THERE IS A DANGER IN AWAKENING THE KUNDALINI. IF SO, WHAT IS THE DANGER? AND WHY SHOULD THE KUNDALINI BE AWAKENED IF IT IS DANGEROUS TO DO SO? There is a good deal of danger involved. Really, there is a danger of losing all that we take to be our life. As we are, we will not remain the same after the kundalini is awakened. Everything will change. Every thing. Our relationships, our emotions, our world and all that we knew till yesterday will change. All that will change is the danger. If coal is to---OSHO NAMAN

Please sit or stand apart. Keep a little distance from one an other so that those of you who want to lie down may do so comfortably. No one will talk, there will be no chit chatting at all. You will sit quietly and no one will sit close to another. There is plenty of space here, so don't be miserly. It would unnecessarily spoil everything if someone falls on you in the midst of meditation. Keep apart. Sit or lie down... Take your position as is convenient for you... Close your eyes... And do as I ask you to do. FIRST STAGE: TEN MINUTES DEEP---OSHO NAMAN

Matter and God are One

The universe is an expansion of energy, and life is the crystallization of it. What we see as matter, what we see as stone, is also energy. What is seen as life, what is experienced as thought, what is felt like consciousness is also a trans formation of energy. The whole cosmos ­ whether it is the waves of the sea or the pine trees of the forest or the grains of sand or the stars in the skies or that which is within us ­ all are manifestations of the same energy in infinite forms and ways. It is difficult to say where we begin and where we end---OSHO NAMAN

Question 1 QUESTIONER: YOU SAID YESTERDAY THAT OUR KUNDAS OR POOLS OF ENERGY ARE NOT SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER; THEY ARE REALLY ONE COSMIC KUNDA. BUT SO FAR AS A SEEKER IS CONCERNED HIS ENERGY WILL RISE FROM HIS OWN KUNDA AND NOT FROM OTHERS. SO IS THE KUNDA REALLY ONE? PLEASE EXPLAIN. It is like this: You have a well in your house and I have another well in my house. Obviously, the two wells seem to be separate from each other. But the underground stream from which these two wells draw their supply of water is the same.---OSHO NAMAN

Question 1 QUESTIONER: A GREAT MYSTIC OF RUSSIA, GEORGE GURDJIEFF HAS WRITTEN A MEMOIR OF HIS SPIRIT UAL ADVENTURES KNOWN AS Meetings with Remarkable Men. IN THE BOOK HE SAYS THAT HE WAS MUCH IMPRESSED BY A DISCUSSION WITH A SUFI DERVISH ON YOGIC PRANAYAM AND ASANAS. THE DERVISH HAD WARNED HIM AGAINST ALL KINDS OF BREATHING EXERCISES, BECAUSE ANY CHANGE IN THE NATURAL BREATHING SYSTEM BRINGS ABOUT DISORDER IN LIFE WITH DISASTROUS RESULTS. WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT IT? There is some truth in what he says about pranayam and other---OSHO NAMAN

Question 1 QUESTIONER: YOU SAID AT THE NARGOL MEDITATION CAMP HELD RECENTLY, THAT THE SADHANA OR DISCIPLINE OF KUNDALINI IS A WAY OF PREPARING THE BODY. WILL YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN IT? Firstly, the body and the soul in their very depth are not separate; the difference between them is very superficial. When the whole truth of it is known, we no longer see the body and the soul as two separate entities; we really see them as one and the same. In fact, the body is that part of the soul which can be grasped by the senses, and the soul---OSHO NAMAN
