A Meditation for Global Wellbeing

“If you are alone; read the meditation and guide yourself through it, checking in with the words if you need to. If you are two or more; take turns guiding one another through the meditation letting the words soothe you.

Gently focus on your breathing and allow your energy to shift down inside to your core. Let each breath draw you down deeper into stillness. Feel the support of the Earth and observe as your thoughts begin to slip by and quiet down.

Put your attention on your heart-center, placing a hand on your chest, feeling the rhythmic, steady beating of your own heart.

Scan your body slowly and notice any tension, notice how your awareness brings effortless release to every muscle and every inch of your body.

Allow yourself to feel the warmth of your heart-center bubbling up within you. Take your time. Take as long as you need.

Feel the brilliant energy of health, joy, and strength completely surrounding you, coming from within you.

Take a moment to pause. Feel, listen, tune-in. Your awareness is shifting inwards to that which is always present and whole.

Imagine a tiny sun in the middle of your heart that with each natural breath begins to expand in an ever-widening circle. Feel its energy as it encompasses you.

Feel with every breath how that sun grows ever-wider, reaching out to those within your immediate environment, blessing them, then expanding; its healing radiance perpetually pulsating.

Imagine that incandescent globe of light extending until it encompasses the whole of Planet Earth, blessing each inhabitant with health and profound peace.

Pause, if you like, and rest in this wonderful feeling of warmth and peace, of ease and Oneness — beginning within you and reaching out to the farthest corners of the Earth and beyond, for as long as you like, perhaps carrying it within you throughout this hour, day or even weeks or months.

When you’re ready, come back to your body awareness, carrying with you the limitless light of wellbeing that is your natural birthright.

Love and Peaceful Blessings Upon You Always”

Osho – Become the Clarity of the Cloudless Sky Meditation

Become the Clarity of the Cloudless Sky

“If you meditate on open unclouded sky, suddenly you will feel that the mind is disappearing, the mind is dropping away. There will be gaps. Suddenly you will become aware that it is as if the clear sky has entered in you also. There will be intervals. For a time being, thoughts will cease – as if the traffic has ceased and there is no one moving. In the beginning it will be only for moments, but even those moments are transforming. By and by the mind will slow down, bigger gaps will appear. For minutes together there will be no thought, no cloud.

To meditate on the sky is beautiful. Just lie down so you forget the earth; just lie down on your back on any lonely beach, on any ground, and just look at the sky. But a clear sky will be helpful – unclouded, endless. And just looking, staring at the sky, feel the clarity of it – the uncloudedness, the boundless expanse – and then enter that clarity, become one with it. Feel as if you have become the sky, the space.

But if it is not summer what will you do? If the sky is clouded, not clear, then close your eyes and just enter the inner sky. Just close your eyes, and if you see some thoughts, just see them as if they are floating clouds in the sky. Be aware of the background, the sky, and be indifferent to thoughts.

We are too much concerned with thoughts and never aware of the gaps. One thought passes, and before another enters there is a gap – in that gap the sky is there. Then, whenever there is no thought, what is there? The emptiness is there. So if the sky is clouded – it is not summertime and the sky is not clear – close your eyes, focus your mind on the background, the inner sky in which thoughts come and go. Don’t pay much attention to thoughts; pay attention to the space in which they move. Then the summer sky happens within.”

The Moment Of Enlightenment

“I’m simply saying that there is a way to be sane. I’m saying that you can get rid of all this insanity created by the past in you. Just by being a simple witness of your thought processes.

It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing, not interfering not even judging, because the moment you judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this is bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process.

It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise, that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher.

And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real religion. Because as you become more and more deeply rooted in witnessing, thoughts start disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly empty.

That’s the moment of enlightenment. That is the moment that you become for the first time an unconditioned, sane, really free human being.”
