Mindfulness Meditation Practise - Thursday 31 December 2015

Happy New Year 2016
Om ~ Ragani 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

Kinder ~ Donna De Lory

Mindfulness Meditation ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness is considered the heart of Buddhist meditation. But its essence is universal and of deep practical benefit to everyone. In Wherever You Go, There You Are, Jon Kabat-Zinn maps out a simple path for cultivating mindfulness in our lives, and awakening us to the unique beauty and possibilities of each present moment.

Mindfulness practice couldn't be simpler: pay attention to the breath, and when your attention wanders, return. By following these simple steps, you can get to know yourself up close and personal. The essential meditation is Silence. We are made of sound and silence.Sound is our mind; silence is our being. Sound is our trouble; silence is our liberation.All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part. Vipassana Page

Wherever You Go There You Are ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life. In this book, Jon Kabat-Zinn maps out a simple path for cultivating mindfulness in one's own life. It speaks both to those coming to meditation for the first time and to longtime practitioners, anyone who cares deeply about reclaiming the richness of his or her moments. It includes a focus on "non-doing," which has nothing to do with being lazy or indolent, but the ability to "simply let things be and allowing them to unfold in their own way". In short, this is the art of mindfulness, which has to be kindled and nurtured because "you can only get there if you are fully here".

The Ten Bulls of Zen - Sutra 8: Be a lotus flower!~ Osho
Zen is going to be the religion of the future of humanity, because it teaches how to renounce and it teaches how to renounce renouncing also. It teaches how to go beyond the world, and it teaches how to go beyond the beyond. It looks paradoxical but it is not, because when you go beyond the beyond you are back in the world; the circle is complete. With Buddha the circle remains a little incomplete. Nirvana remains nirvana, the world remains the world – separated. The enlightened man remains enlightened, the unenlightened remains unenlightened – separate. Zen bridges them. The ultimate flowering is when a man is neither enlightened nor not enlightened – beyond categories. He lives in the world and yet does not live in the world. He lives in the world but the world does not live in him. He has become the lotus flower. Be a lotus flower. Be in the water, and let not the water touch you.  Osho ~ The Ten Bulls of Zen - Download Links

Metta (Loving Kindness) Meditation ~ Sharon Salzberg
When you give your fullest attention to whoever you are interacting with, you take past and future out of the relationship, except for practical matters. When you are fully present with everyone you meet, you relinquish the conceptual identity you made for them — your interpretation of who they are and what they did in the past. Attention, which is alert stillness, is the key. www.youtube.com/watch

Breath Of Heaven ~ Amy Grant
This song was originally written by Chris Eaton, but Amy Grant wanted to record it and asked Chris if she could rewrite some of the lyrics from a woman's perspective, namely Mary. Chris agreed.

The White Lotus: Discourses on the Zen Master Bodhidharma ~ Osho
Mind is the problem and mind is also the solution. Mind as an ego is the problem; mind without any ego is the solution. Mind with a lower case m is the problem; mind with a capital M is the solution. Mind with a lower case m is part of personality; mind with a capital M is universal. It is not yours, it is not mine; it is nobody’s or it is everybody’s. The universal mind contains all consciousness. The other way to say it, which is the Zen way, is: the mind is the problem and the no-mind is the solution. No-mind is simply another way of saying the cosmic mind, the universal mind. The ’no’ denies the ego not the mind, remember it. The ’no’ denies the personal not the universal. The ’no’ simply denies all limitations and helps you to become as infinite as you really are. This is the most fundamental truth about the buddhas. Their work consists of helping you to dissolve the personal mind, which is like a dewdrop, in the universal, which is the oceanic. www.youtube.com

Connecting with Your Aspirations ~ Tara Brach
There is a saying in Zen Buddhism: “The most important thing is to remember the most important thing.” As Tara Brach teaches, this is a pointing instruction that guides us to reflect on the essential values that are most important to us—heartfelt truths that are often obscured by our hectic movement through the everyday world. In this selection from her audio program Finding True Refuge selected by Sounds True producer Randy Roark, Tara offers a simple and profound guided meditation to help you reach a place of truth, love, and awareness in order to rediscover and reconnect to what is most important to you. www.soundstrue.com

The whole of Nature cries out at our mistreatment of Her. If the planet were a patient, we would have treated her long ago.

So today, after far too long an interval, you are all here to set us on the road to a saner future.

Aham Brahmasmi ~ ViernesdeMantra Qüirio  www.youtube.com
And the answer the Buddha gave is of immense importance to understand. He said, "I am just a Buddha -- I am just awareness, and nothing else. I don't belong to any category. Every category is an identification and I don't have any identity. "Sunil Sethi, exactly the same is my answer: I don't belong to any category, and godman is a category. I am simply awareness. I am simply a watchfulness. And this is not something special; this is part of your innermost core, too. You are as divine as anybody else - a Buddha, a Krishna, a Christ. You are as divine as anybody else. The highest and the lowest, all are divine, because only God exists. This is the first thing to be remembered: that I don't belong to any category. Neither do you belong to any category. Are you a Hindu, a Mohammedan, a Christian? Are you black or white? These are things which are outside - you are not these things. Consciousness cannot be black and cannot be white; consciousness can't have any colour. Are you rich or poor? Consciousness cannot be rich or poor either. Are you a man or a woman? Consciousness is neither a man nor a woman. Consciousness is simply consciousness! To realize this is to declare, "Aham Brahmasmi! - I am God!" It is not a new category. When somebody declares "I am God!" it is not a new category, it is simply disappearing from all categories. That is exactly the meaning of the word 'God'. When Mansoor says, "Ana'l haq! - I am the truth!" he is saying the same thing. He is saying, "I am consciousness." ~ Osho:  Dhammapada Vol 1, #10

Our Place in the Universe ~ Alan Watts
What is our place in the universe? Some beliefs would place us at the apex of creation, while others would suggest we are nothing more than insignificant motes in a cosmos that is vast beyond our comprehension. However, there is an idea central to Eastern spirituality that offers a radically different way of thinking about this essential question. In this audio clip, spiritual and philosophical legend Alan Watts brings his unequaled gift for decoding the mysteries of Eastern wisdom to help us understand our true place in life—and how we are neither masters nor victims of creation, but something far more integral to the living universe. www.youtube.com

Dealing with Thoughts that are Negative, Difficult or Repetitive ~ Jeff Foster

We can see them as birds tweeting, sounds, that are ALLOWED to be here... www.lifewithoutacentre.com

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die.

Breathing Mindfully ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
"We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness." Breathing mindfully is the best place for any meditation practice to begin. It is a way to integrate the body and the mind in one precious time – one precious moment. When we focus on our breath, inhaling becomes the most important thing in our lives. Taking in life giving oxygen, nourishing our mind, body and spirit, that is paramount. Then as we focus on exhaling, we learn the lesson of letting go.

You may not be aware of it, you may not have ever dreamed about it – that you are a buddha, that nobody can be anything else, that buddhahood is the very essential core of your being, that it is not something to happen in the future, that it has happened already. It is the very source you come from; it is the source and the goal too. It is from buddhahood that we move, and it is to buddhahood that we move. This one word, buddhahood, contains all – the full circle of life, from the alpha to the omega. Audio Book - Video

Professor Sachs talks about his book, The Age of Sustainable Development, which explains the central concept for our age, which is both a way of understanding the world and a method for solving global problems - sustainable development. Sustainable development tries to make sense of the interactions of three complex systems: the world economy, the global society, and the Earth's physical environment. It recommends a holistic framework, in which society aims for environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive development, underpinned by good governance. www.youtube.com/

OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence,  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

Metta (Loving Kindness) Meditation ~ Sharon Salzberg
When you give your fullest attention to whoever you are interacting with, you take past and future out of the relationship, except for practical matters. When you are fully present with everyone you meet, you relinquish the conceptual identity you made for them — your interpretation of who they are and what they did in the past. Attention, which is alert stillness, is the key. www.youtube.com/watch

I Salute the Buddha within you ~ Osho
You may not be aware of it, you may not have ever dreamed about it – that you are a buddha, that nobody can be anything else, that buddhahood is the very essential core of your being, that it is not something to happen in the future, that it has happened already. It is the very source you come from; it is the source and the goal too. It is from buddhahood that we move, and it is to buddhahood that we move. This one word, buddhahood, contains all – the full circle of life, from the alpha to the omega. Audio Book - Video

Om ~ Ragani on Ancient Spirit 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

Guided Loving Kindness (Metta) Meditation ~ Tara Brach
Metta practice, also called lovingkindness meditation, cultivates both a loving heart and a collected, settled mind.  The practice uses specific phrases to send loving and kind wishes to yourself, loved ones, neutral persons, difficult people and to all beings everywhere, without exception. You might choose three or four of the below, or create whatever phrases resonate for you:

May I be filled with loving kindness
May I feel safe from harm.
May I accept myself just as I am.
May I be peaceful and at ease. 
May I be happy.

Spend a few minutes or more offering the phrases to yourself, taking the time to imagine and directly feel the experience the phrases invoke.  Then do the same as you offer it to the others mentioned above. You can bring in the metta practice at the beginning, end or during any part of the meditation.  For some people, it can be beneficial to emphasize metta as a primary practice—especially when there has been trauma or great self-aversion.  This skilful means is a beautiful way to awaken the heart.

In short, this is the art of mindfulness, which has to be kindled and nurtured because "you can only get there if you are fully here". www.youtube.com/watch?

Long believed to be the work of Lao-Tzu, "The Book of the Way" is considered the classic manual on the art of living. The Tao Te Ching (pronounced, more or less, Dow Deh Jing) is essentially about being in harmony with the way things are. It teaches how to live and work effortlessly by being in accord with the Tao - the basic principle of the universe. This wisdom is applied to themes as diverse as raising a family, business, good government and ecology.over seven weeks www.youtube.com/watch

Mindful Meditation Practice - Thursday 24 September 2015

This weekend the United Nations marks its 70th anniversary and Prime ministers, Presidents and the Pope will gather in New York to launch the UN - #‎GlobalGoals to Transform Our World.

These “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) will shape aid, climate change, development, future peace and wellbeing of humankind for the next 15 years. This is the culmination
of a process that started 28 years ago on the 27th April 1987 in the Churchill Auditorium, Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London with the release of the report “Our
Common Future” from the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED), that developed the broad political concept of sustainable development.

You can have it whole, or you can throw it away whole, but you cannot divide it. Koan Page Link

Mindful Meditation Practice - Thursday 17 September 2015

 
As Dennis Lewis writes in his book Breathe into Being: Awakening to Who You Really Are “In some mysterious way we are two-natured beings; Emptiness and form, Space and substance, Consciousness and the objects of consciousness, Silence and sound, Heaven and earth.  As human beings, our ultimate possibility is to experience consciously the ever-present unity, or perhaps more accurately the nonduality, of these two natures in our everyday lives.” Today we hear two approaches to this possibility, Christian and Zen. John Main, Founder of World Community for Christian Meditation “The essence of the Gospel message, and the essence of the experience of meditation, is not self-analysis but self-transcendence.” And Zen Master, Osho “The basic thing to be understood is that you are not the mind.”

Accept Yourself ~ Osho
Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning you have been told how you should be. Nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are. Don’t be obsessed with yourself -- but a natural self-love is a must, a basic phenomenon. Only then out of it can you love somebody else. Accept yourself, love yourself. Nobody else has ever been like you and nobody else will ever be like you; you are simply unique, incomparable. Accept this, love this, celebrate this -- and in that very celebration you will start seeing the uniqueness of the others, the incomparable beauty of the others. Love is possible only when there is a deep acceptance of oneself, the other, the world. Acceptance creates the milieu in which love grows, the soil in which love blooms." - Osho  www.youtube.com

Intimate Relationships and the Sacred Path: Part Two ~ Marianne Williamson
When you experience deep intimacy with your beloved partner, your face glows and your heart sings. You feel connected in your soul. Learning to be intimate involves attending to the energy that moves through your body. As you develop the ability to direct this energy, you maximize your aliveness and sexual presence. You become more sensually, emotionally and spiritually responsive to your partner and to life in general. Participating in sacred ceremonies helps you shift your consciousness into heightened awareness. Your heart opens into new realms of bliss. www.betterlisten.com

Om ~ Ragani 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

Manifesting Grace through Gratitude! ~ Oprah & Deepak
“True wisdom is being able to say 'it is what it is' with a smile of celebratory wonder on your face.” ― Eric Micha'el Leventhal Living in grace is for everyone, not just for those who feel called to a secluded life of prayer and devotion. Grace is everywhere all the time. To fully live in the state of grace only requires that we allow our true self to shine forth. In today’s meditation, we learn that we attain this state by simply being it, which means we naturally and effortless live an open life of gratitude. That is how we become a complete person. We embody a life in grace by acting from a spirit of generosity and wholeness. https://chopracentermeditation.com/experience

The Dhammapada: Sutra - Light and Darkness ~ Osho
Osho calls the incomparable Dhammapada sutras of Buddha, "the book of books." He explains that these sutras are concerned with aspects of man′s unawareness, and that Buddha′s whole message is concerned with the raising of our consciousness. These sutras were compiled by Buddha′s disciples to contain the essence of all his teachings. This was the last turning of the Wheel of Dharma, 2,500 years ago. At the beginning of his commentaries on these sutras, Osho says he is setting the Wheel of Dharma in motion again. This is from the introduction to the first chapter 'Be On Guard' in the  Audiobook Series The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 09   www.osho.com

Making Contact with the Spirit ~ John Main
Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice found at the core of all the great religious traditions, leading from the mind to the heart. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness. It can be practised by anyone, wherever you are on your life’s journey. It is only necessary to be clear about the practice and then to begin – and to keep on beginning. In Christianity this tradition of contemplation, the prayer of the heart or 'apophatic prayer', became marginalised and often even sometimes suspect. But in recent times a major recovery of the contemplative dimension of  Christian faith -and prayer - has been happening. The World Community for Christian Meditation. www.wccm.org

It means to have a healthy respect and compassion for ourselves and to acknowledge that we have a definite, fundamental potential to do good in the world. www.youtube.com/

Why Should We Meditate? ~ Pema Chödrön
Beloved teacher Pema Chödrön has been at the forefront of spreading awareness of Buddhist practice in the West for nearly four decades. In this excerpt drawn from Ani Pema’s audio program Pure Meditation, she considers why it is that we are drawn to meditation and what we gain from its practice. In the words of Sounds True producer Matt Licata, “Pema has a real gift of reaching beyond tradition and into the heart of the modern person who is yearning for true spiritual awakening. Pema’s description of the radical act of meditation is both inspiring and clarifying.” www.soundstrue.com

Mindfulness for Beginners ~ Happify 
Over the last 15 years, we've come to realize that the science of happiness is a serious and legitimate area of study, with a great deal of validated research and studies supporting it. 1. That the brain we're born with can be changed. Technically speaking, they call that neuroplasticy. 2. We can change it by adopting new thought patterns, by training our brain as if it were a muscle, to overcome negative thoughts. 3. All of us are hard-wired for negativity (blame evolution!) but can profoundly benefit from learning new ways to react and deal with everyday stresses. 4. It doesn't take a lot of effort to make a real difference in your life. A few simple and even entertaining mental diversions will change things. www.happify.com

Walk Without Feet, Fly Without Wings and Think Without Mind ~ Osho
THOUGHT IS THE CAPACITY OF NOT BEING HERE – so thought cannot exist in the herenow, it cannot be part of it. That is impossible. Thought can only be either of the past or of the future. Thought can never be of the present. In the VERY process of thinking, that is implied; it is intrinsic to it. The moment you think, either you think of the past or you think of the future. It may be the immediate past, but it is still past – it is never the present, it cannot be the present Thought needs space. And the present moment has no space in it. Thought creates the past and the future to live in. The bigger the past, the more easily thought can move; the bigger the future, again, the more easily thought can move. The present is not capable of giving that space for thought to move. Chapter 3. www.mediafire.com/listen/

The Evolution of Consciousness - Peter Russell
A conversation with Peter Russell about how the exploration of consciousness has evolved in the past 50 years. A fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest. At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation. He has written several books in this area — The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Global Brain Awakens, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God. www.youtube.com/watch

Existence is a Dialectics ~ Osho
EXISTENCE IS A DIALECTICS. IT DEPENDS ON POLAR OPPOSITES: man/woman, yin/yang, life/death, daylight. But the basic polarity in all the polarities is that of positive and negative. Only positive cannot exist, neither can the negative exist alone. They depend on each other. They are opposites and yet not opposites. If you understand this, you have a great key in your hands: they are opposites and yet complementaries, because they cannot exist without the other. The other feeds them – negates them and feeds them. And the whole existence progresses. moves, flows, because of these two polar banks. No river can flow without these two banks.

Meditation is looking into your emptiness, welcoming it, enjoying it, being one with it, with no desire to fill it? There is no need, because it is already full.

Emptiness ~ Osho
Meditation is looking into your emptiness, welcoming it, enjoying it, being one with it, with no desire to fill it? There is no need, because it is already full. It looks empty because you don´t have the right way of seeing it. You see it through the mind; that is the wrong way. If you put the mind aside and look into your emptiness, it has tremendous beauty, it is divine, it is overflowing with joy. Nothing else is needed. www.osho.com

I Want to Love Myself but I Don't Know How - Teal Swan
Join captivating new voice in spirituality and gifted spiritual luminary Teal Swan for a no-holds-barred conversation about self-love, the origins of self-hate, and how you can start to love yourself today. Born highly extrasensory, Teal survived a childhood of horrendous abuse at the hands of a cult member. Escaping at age 19, she began her incredible and often gut-wrenching journey to loving herself. In this fascinating conversation, Teal reveals her compelling story, her profound knowledge about what self-love means, and the most important decision you can make to attain it. She discusses her new memoir and self-love tool kit, Shadows Before Dawn; shares a profound exercise with listeners; and, with a raw intensity unlike any other, articulates the meaning of life and her vision for the world. http://www.mediafire.com/listen/

Om ~ Ragani 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

We are here to end suffering ~ Kelly McGonigal
If ending suffering is more important than anything, we will end suffering. If ending suffering is not more important than anything, we will not end suffering.
If I am suffering, it is because I am choosing something over ending suffering. We are not here to create and cling to beliefs. We are here to pay attention.

The Power of Presence ~ Eckhart Tolle
Join Eckhart Tolle, world-renowned speaker and best-selling author of The Power of Now and A New Earth, as he discusses the importance of being present and how that presence is vital to our efforts to achieve true and lasting inner peace and happiness. Eckhart explains that although thinking can be a very powerful tool, when we think too much we keep ourselves from being fully present, and as a result our awareness decreases. Fortunately, using the brief “mini-meditation” techniques discussed here (some of which require only 15 to 30 seconds each), it’s possible for us all to find the time to bring more moments of presence—and, hence, fullness—to our lives. www.hayhouseworldsummit.com

Breathe Like a Child ~ Osho

Time disappears. Space disappears. What is left is the eternal, the limitless, the incredible expanse of all that is. http://www.mentorschannel.com/Osho/

From Thinking to Feeling ~ Osho
It is living from the heart, not the mind, that is most fulfilling. When you live each day from the heart center you will find your life more gratifying, more harmonious and more joyous. Although the mind has filters and judgements, there are no such things within the heart. Consciously breathe from the heart and you will find the ultimate peace and harmony that you have been searching for. In today’s meditation, you will learn to move from the raucous thinking of the brain to the comfort and beauty of the heart. This is the way to transform your life – to move from thinking to feeling, through the practice of meditation. www.mentorschannel.com/Osho/

Questions on Meditation ~ Fr Laurence Freeman
"Sit down. Sit still. Close your eyes lightly. Sit relaxed but alert. Silently, interiorly begin to say a single word (“maranatha” is recommended.) Recite it as four syllables of equal length. Listen to it as you say it, gently but continuously. Do not think or imagine anything -- spiritual or otherwise. If thoughts or images come, these are distractions at the time of meditation, so keep returning to the simple work of saying the word. Meditate each morning and evening between twenty and thirty minutes.” . www.wccm.org/

Happiness Day
Om ~ Ragani 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragani3

Relax the Breathing ~ Osho
Today’s meditation is one that nourishes you whenever you do it. Osho originally gave it to someone who said his meditation practice was frequently interrupted because he travels a lot. Osho explained that any meditation which is disturbed again and again isn't good, meditation needs a continuity so something is needed that can be done also while traveling – a few times in the day when it is easy. And this is a meditation virtually anyone would be able to build into their day – travelling or not. http://www.mentorschannel.com/Osho/

Silence WCCM ~ John Main
It becomes more evident each year that meditation, as a way of friendship and compassion, builds a bridge of the spirit between peoples of different faiths, between rich and poor, and between those suffering conflict or division. The great social and psychological distresses of modern society call for a change of mind and heart, for a deep contemplative response. John Main believed that each human being, whatever their lifestyle, is called to this spiritual depth and that the foundations of civilisation rest upon the contemplative consciousness. http://www.wccm.org/content/john-main

Jalaluddin Rumi ~ Osho
There have been very few people who have moved and transformed as many hearts as Jalaluddin Rumi. In the world of the Sufis, Mevlana Rumi is the emperor. His words have to be understood not as mere words, but sources of deep silences, echoes of inner and the innermost songs. He is the greatest dancer the world has known. Twelve hundred years have passed since he was alive. His dance is a special kind of dance. It is a kind of whirling, just the way small children whirl; standing on one spot they go on round and round. And perhaps everywhere in the world small children do that and their elders stop them saying, "You will become dizzy, you will fall, you will hurt yourself," and, "What is the point of doing it?" Jalaluddin Rumi made a meditation of whirling. The meditator goes on whirling for hours -- as long as the body allows him; he does not stop on his own. When whirling a moment comes that he sees himself utterly still and silent, a center of the cyclone. Around the center the body is moving, but there is a space which remains unmoved; that is his being. The Rebellious Spirit  ~ Osho

Tao Te Ching (7 of 7) ~ Eckhart Tolle
Eckhart explores the essence of the spiritual classic that has accompanied him for thirty years and revisits Lao Tse’s timeless work to further explore its life-changing truthsThe Tao Te Ching is one of the most important texts within the Taoist tradition and the most widely translated work in world literature after the Bible. Long believed to be the work of Lao-Tzu, "The Book of the Way" is considered the classic manual on the art of living. The Tao Te Ching (pronounced, more or less, Dow Deh Jing) is essentially about being in harmony with the way things are. It teaches how to live and work effortlessly by being in accord with the Tao - the basic principle of the universe. This wisdom is applied to themes as diverse as raising a family, business, good government and ecology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?

Being in Nature ~ Eckhart Tolle
Eckhart talks about the contemplation of nature as a pathway to free you from the preoccupation with yourself. If you are alert enough in nature, your personality recedes; you don’t remember your past or what’s going on in your life. All that is replaced with alert awareness. Nature can help you transcend that trap of only paying attention to that limited self. www.eckharttolletv.com

The Ten Bulls of Zen - Sutra 10: In the World ~ Osho
Whatsoever you are, you will find the world exactly the same. You go on finding yourself in the world again and again. The world is a mirror. If you are enlightened, you are surrounded by enlightened beings. There is no other way. You are surrounded by an enlightened universe. The whole existence, the rocks and the rivers, the oceans and the stars, all are enlightened beings. It depends on you. Where you are, you create your world. If you are miserable, you live in a miserable world. If you are enlightened, you live in an enlightened world. If your energy is celebrating within, the whole becomes a symphony of celebration. Osho ~ The Ten Bulls of Zen - Download Links

The Ten Bulls of Zen - Sutra 9: Reaching The Source ~ Osho
Man misses his true nature because of desire, imitation, jealousy, competition. Man is the only being on earth who is not true to himself, whose river is not in tune with itself; who is always moving somewhere else, who is always looking at somebody else; who is always trying to be somebody else. That’s the misery, the calamity. You can be only yourself. There is no other possibility, it simply does not exist. The sooner you understand it the better. You cannot be a Buddha, you cannot be a Jesus, and there is no need. You can be only yourself.

The Ten Bulls of Zen - Sutra 8: Be a lotus flower!~ Osho
Zen is going to be the religion of the future of humanity, because it teaches how to renounce and it teaches how to renounce renouncing also. It teaches how to go beyond the world, and it teaches how to go beyond the beyond. It looks paradoxical but it is not, because when you go beyond the beyond you are back in the world; the circle is complete. With Buddha the circle remains a little incomplete. Nirvana remains nirvana, the world remains the world – separated. The enlightened man remains enlightened, the unenlightened remains unenlightened – separate. Zen bridges them. The ultimate flowering is when a man is neither enlightened nor not enlightened – beyond categories. He lives in the world and yet does not live in the world. He lives in the world but the world does not live in him. He has become the lotus flower. Be a lotus flower. Be in the water, and let not the water touch you.  Osho ~ The Ten Bulls of Zen - Download Links
