A feeling of mine is telling me to talk to humanity about the beauty of aloneness.
Many of you confuse the meaning of aloneness and loneliness. Loneliness is the absence of the other while aloneness is overflowing presence. “You are so full of presence that you can fill the whole universe with your presence and there is no need for anybody” (Osho Zen Tarot, The Transcendental Game of Zen, p.21).
It is a beautiful feeling that one can experience once you are aware of your own self and content with you.
If you have not reached that level of awareness then you will only feel lonely and therefore needy. Always wanting wanting wanting. Wanting love, wanting a person that cuddles you when you feel sad, wanting a degree that shows how successful you are, wanting friends among who you feel accepted and part of something.
Only the state of aloneness and the appreciation of that state gives you peace and makes you enlightened.
As Osho says “You do not need to be a Buddhist in order to be a Buddha” (Osho).
In line with these thought I’d like to express myself more about my rebellious nature – something that has always been a threat to humanity. Something that has scared people, also my own family. There is nothing to fear.
“I am the master of my own destiny. I am a Rebel – an emperor because I have broken the chains of society’s repressive conditioning and opinions. I have formed myself by embracing all the colours of the rainbow, emerging from the dark and formless roots of my unconscious past and growing wings to fly into the sky. I am rebellious not because I am fighting against anybody or anything, but because I have discovered my own true nature and am determined to live in accordance with it ” (Osho Zen Tarot, The Transcendental Game of Zen, p. 10).
People are afraid of those who know themselves because the latter have a certain power, a certain aura and a certain magnetism, a charisma that can take out alive, young people from the traditional imprisonment…”(Osho Zen Tarot, The Transcendental Game of Zen, p. 11).
Listen to yourself.
Do not reach out for people.
You are your treasure.
