Osho: Meditation Is a Very Simple Phenomenon
When you are not doing anything at all --
bodily, mentally,
on no level --
when all activity has ceased
and you simply are,
just being,
that's what meditation is.
You cannot do it, you cannot practice it;
you have only to understand it.
And whenever you can find time
and drop all doing --
thinking is also doing,
concentration is also doing,
contemplation is also doing --
if, even for a single moment, you are not doing anything
and you are just at your center,
utterly relaxed,
that is meditation.
And once you have got the knack of it
you can remain in that state as long as you want.
You can remain in that state,
twenty-four hours.
Once you have become aware of the way,
of how being
can remain
then slowly you can start doing things --
keeping alert that being is not stirred.
That is the second part of meditation.
First, learning how just to be
and then learning
little actions:
cleaning the floor,
taking a shower,
but keeping
yourself centered.
Then you can do complicated things.
For example, I am speaking to you
but my meditation is not disturbed.
I can go on speaking,
but at my very center
there is not even a ripple.
It is just silent,
utterly silent.
So meditation is not against action,
it is not that you have to escape from life.
It simply teaches you a new way of life,
where you become the center of a cyclone.
Your life goes on,
it goes on really more intensely --
with more joy,
with more clarity,
more vision, more creativity --
you are aloof,
just a watcher on the hills
seeing all that is happening around you.
You are not the doer,
you are the watcher.
That's the whole secret of meditation,
that you become the watcher.
Doing continues on its own level,
there is no problem...
chopping wood,
drawing water from the well.
You can do all small and big things.
Only one thing is not allowed
and that is: your centering
should not be lost.
That awareness,
that watchfulness
should remain
absolutely unclouded,
Meditation is a very simple phenomenon.
