Welcoming Osho as my master

ME, OSHO, POETRY

I have welcomed you as my master
In complete surrender I bow down and touch your feet
I am letting go, I am emptying myself
Coming home
Shedding layers

A movement of energy is happening
A whirling wind around me
Coming back to stillness and there is nothing left

Where am I and what is happening?
Surrendering once more

I love you and I will now move you
You are doing well keep going

A cosmic joke
A laugh and I come back

A sense of love in my heart an openness and a new vulnerability
Held by the energy field around me

My sensitivity is welcomed here
There is no need to suppress or deny it any longer
The time has come for me to start shining my light
To stop hiding in the shadows

To walk out in my aloneness like a mirror
Creating space for others to follow
Letting my light overflow

Guided and held by the universe
Everything I will need will be provided
There is nothing for me to do
No need to worry
Just be
Just unfold

Present in each moment
Moving spontaneously
Freely
Bravely

I encourage you to love to accept to flower
You are coming home my love
Welcome home

No-thingness

OSHO

Nothingness is the fragrance of the beyond. It is the opening of the heart to the transcendental. It is the unfoldment of the one-thousand-pealed lotus. It is a man’s destiny. Man is complete only when he has come home to this fragrance, when he has come to this absolute nothingness inside his being, when this nothingness has spread all over him, when he is just a pure sky, unclouded.

This nothingness is what Buddha calls nirvana. First we have to understand what this nothingness actually is, because it is not just empty – it is full, it is overflowing. Never for a single moment think that nothingness is a negative state, an absence, no. Nothingness is simply no-thingness. Things disappear, only the ultimate substance remains. Forms disappear, only the formless remains. Definitions disappear, the undefined remains.

So nothingness is not as if there is nothing. It simply means there is no possibility of defining what is there. It is as if you move all the furniture from your house outside. Somebody comes in and he says, “Now, here is nothing”. He had seen the furniture before; now the furniture is missing and he says, “Here there is no longer anything. Nothing is.” His statement is valid only to a certain extent. In fact, when you remove the furniture, you simply remove obstructions in the space of the house. Now pure space exists, now nothing obstructs. Now there is no cloud roaming in the sky; it is just a sky. It is not just nothing, it is purity. It is not only absence, it is a presence.

Have you ever been in an absolutely empty house? You will find that emptiness has a presence; it is very tangible, you can almost touch it. That’s the beauty of a temple or a church or a mosque – pure nothing, just empty. When you go into a temple, what surrounds you is nothingness. It is empty of everything, but not just empty. In that emptiness something is present – but only for those who can feel it, who are sensitive enough to feel it, who are aware enough to see it. Those who can see only things will say, “What is there? Nothing.” Those who can see nothing will say, “All is here, because nothing is here.”

– Osho

“Darkness does not exist”

ART, OSHO

“The first thing to remember is that the ego is the most negative phenomenon in existence. It is like darkness. Darkness has no positive existence; it is simply absence of light. Light has a positive existence; that’s why you cannot do anything directly with darkness. If your room is full of darkness, you cannot put the darkness out of the room, you cannot throw it out, you cannot destroy it by any means directly. If you try to fight with it, you will be defeated. Darkness cannot be defeated by fighting. You may be a great wrestler but you will be surprised to know that you cannot defeat darkness. It is impossible, for the simple reason that darkness does not exist. If you want to do anything with darkness you have to go via light. If you don’t want darkness, bring light in. If you want darkness, then put the light off. But do something with light; nothing can be done with darkness directly. The negative does not exist-so is the ego”.
