Oracles, Tarot and Other Divination Tools Living in the HereNow
Since the early ages humankind has consulted oracles
for example the oracle of Delphi.
People looked to the stars to seek their destiny;
witches or wise women used to read the future in tea leaves or tortoise shells.
Here we use your tarot deck as a tool for meditation
to help us to move to the present,
from the head to the heart.
Osho, why are we continually avoiding this moment?
There has been
a great misunderstanding
between life
and time.
Time is thought to
consist of three tenses:
past, present, future
which is wrong.
Time consists only of past
and future.
It is life which consists of the present.
So those who want to live,
for them there is no
other way
than to live this moment.
Only the present is existential.
The past is simply a collection of memories,
and the future is nothing but
your imaginations, your dreams.
Reality
is herenow.
Those who want just to think about life,
about living,
about love,
for them past and future are perfectly beautiful,
because they give them infinite scope.
They can decorate their past,
make it
as beautiful as they like
although they never lived it,
when it was present they were not there.
These are just
shadows,
reflections.
They were continuously running,
and while running they have seen a few things.
They think they have lived.
In the past
only death is
the reality,
not life.
In the future also, only death is the reality,
not life.
Those who have missed living in the past,
automatically,
to substitute
for the gap,
start dreaming about the future.
Their future is only a projection
out of the past.
Whatever they have missed in the past,
they are hoping for in the future;
and between the two nonexistences,
is the small existent moment
which is life.
For those who want to live, not to think about it;
to love,
not to think about it;
to be,
not to philosophize about it
there is no other alternative.
Drink
the present moment's juices,
squeeze it
totally,
because it is not going to come back again;
once gone, it is gone forever.
But because of the misunderstanding
which
has been
almost as old as man
and all the cultures have
joined in it
they have made the present part of time.
And the present has nothing to do with time.
If you are just here in this moment,
there is no time.
There is immense silence,
stillness,
no movement;
nothing is passing,
everything has come to a sudden stop.
The present gives you the opportunity
to dive deep into the waters of life,
or to fly high into the sky of life.
But on both sides there are dangers
past and future
are the most dangerous words in human language.
Between past and future,
living in the present
is almost like walking on a tight rope
on both sides there is danger.
But once you have
tasted the juice of the present,
you don't care about dangers.
Once you are in tune with life,
then nothing matters.
And to me
life is all there is.
You can call it "God,"
but that is not a good name
because religions have contaminated it.
You can call it "existence,"
which is beautiful.
But
what you call
it is not of any consequence
The understanding should be clear
that you have only one moment in your hands
the real moment.
And again and again you will get that real moment.
Either you live it
or you leave it unlived.
Most of the people
simply drag themselves from the cradle to the grave
without living at all
I have heard about a Sufi statement
that a man, when he died, suddenly realized,, "My God, I was alive."
But only death
as a contrast made him aware,
that for seventy years he had been alive,
but life itself
had not enriched him.
It is not the fault of life.
It is our misunderstanding.
My insistence for watchfulness
will give you life without even
thinking about it,
because watchfulness can only be in the present.
You can witness only the present.
Live totally and live intensely,
so that each moment becomes golden,
and your whole life
becomes a series of golden moments.
Such a person never dies,
because he has the Midas touch
whatever he touches becomes golden.
When he touches death, death also becomes golden.
He enjoys it as much as life -- or perhaps more
because death is more condensed than life. Life is spread over
seventy,eighty years.
Death happens in a single moment.
It is so condensed,
that if you have lived your life rightly,
you will be able to enter into the mystery of death.
And the mystery of death is that it is only a cover.
Inside is
your immortality,
your eternal life.
