it’s fine – don’t define

CTperfprmance_large

This extract is in line with my poetic life – where there is no room for defining anything since the moment you define it is the moment you kill it, no room for any system, religion, dogma, criteria, category, subject.
In line with this extract I’d like to claim that rationality leads to mind-constructs and pain since it is limited. Irrationality is immense and vast. If you are irrational you are living without defining or labelling things. You are just SEEING existence. Not things!!! And everything is flowing like a river. And you are immersed. Touching the ocean and feeling every wave of it. You cannot name or define this feeling. You can only embrace it. Feel it. Live it. And you can write poems about it to transcend the feeling, “to open the window” as Osho says.
Life is poetry.

Enjoy the extract:

“Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Mohammedanism – these are only ideologies, dogmas, creeds; they are only cults. The true religion has no name, it cannot have any name. Buddha lived it, Jesus lived it – but remember, Jesus was not a Christian and Buddha was not a Buddhist, he had never heard of the word. The truly religious people have been simply religious, they have not been dogmatic. There are three hundred religions in the world – this is such an absurdity! If truth is one, how can there be three hundred religions? There is one science and three hundred religions?
If the science that is concerned with the objective truth is one, the religion is also one because it is concerned with the subjective truth, the other side of the truth. But that religion cannot have any name, it cannot have any ideology.
I teach only that religion. Hence if somebody asks you what my teaching is, in short, you will not be able to say – because I don’t teach principles, ideologies, dogmas, doctrines. I teach a religionless religion, I teach you the taste of it. I give you the method to become receptive to the divine. I don’t say anything about the divine, I simply tell you, “This is the window – open it and you will see the starry night.”
Now, that starry night is indefinable. Once you see it through the open window you will know it. Seeing is knowing – and seeing should be being too.
There should be no other belief.
So, my whole effort is existential, not intellectual at all. And the true religion is existential. It has always happened to only a few people and then disappears from the earth because the intellectuals immediately grab it and they start making beautiful ideologies out of it – neat and clean, logical. In that very effort they destroy its beauty. They create philosophies, and religion disappiers.
The pundit, the scholar, the theologian, is the enemy of religion.
So remember it: you are not getting initiated into a certain religion: you are getting initiated into just religiousness.
It is vast, immense, unbounded – it is like the whole sky.
Even the sky is not the limit, so open your wings without any fear. This whole existence belongs to us: this is our temple, this is our scripture. Less than that is man-made, manufactured by man. Where it is manufactured does not matter much – beware of manufactured religions so that you can know the true, which is not man-made. And it is available in the trees, in the mountains, in the rivers, in the stars – in you, in people that surround you – it is available.”

To all the leaders or educators I have a few questions:

How can you teach religion without being religious?
How can you teach poetry without seeing the ocean, the trees, the flowers?
How can you teach language without speaking the language?
How can you be a mother without being a child?
How can you see the sky without flying?
How can you be without being?

In line with Osho’s extract – a divine expression of the soul.

Transcription of Akim Funk Buddha‘s lyric:

“I’m wonderin’ when the madness will end, cz it makes no sense.
dense times, stupid crimes.
you can go for yours and I can get mine.
everything was FINE before it was DEFINED.
following the leader – then you’ll always be behind.
are you blind? are YOU blind?”

Poetic Lyric

real men got no character

photo (4)

When I talk about something I express it with all myself. My response is always very intense. Then people ask me “Are you against this? Are you for this?” and I reply: “I am against nothing and for nothing. I just love life”. They try to categorize me according to what I say. It is simply not possible to categorize anything. Not me, not you, not him, not her. Nobody and nothing. Everything is just so pure. It has its unique colour. The moment you categorize it, label it, organize it, it simply loses its colour, its flavour. Its essence.

Yes, I love life in all its subtle ways. I love every moment of it and I love living every feeling that arises inside of me intensely. I love feeling my feelings and living them. It’s life’s gift for me.
Every experience is a unique sensation. It can be hunger, thirst, kissing, falling in love, crying for love, grieving,….any feeling.
I love LIVING.
I love living passionately.
I love living poetically.
When I see the blue sky, the moonlight and the heavy rain…is when poetry caresses me – it’s like a butterfly stroking my skin gently with her wings. Poetry.

Osho never stops impressing me!
He describes what I feel so well. Every time I find myself reading his books I keep nodding and nodding.
Smiling and smiling.

“Any man who is really alive has no character. He cannot have a character. Character is always dead – a dead structure around you, carried over from the past, the past experience. If you act out of your character, you don’t act at all; you simply react. You don’t respond. Response is immediate: life creates a situation, a challenge, and you respond. You respond out of your being, with no centre, with no conclusion. Not trough the past; herenow comes the response – pure, virgin.
That discipline I appreciate. That discipline I love. But any other discipline that you force yourself into, that you practise, is dangerous. That is going to kill you. That’s how many people are already dead – their discipline has killed them” (Osho 1994, 156-157).

healing from within: the psychosomatic man

healing without medicine
People link healing to medicine, a science which treats the human being as a machine rather than as a being. A human being is a being and not a machine. That’s why medicine has failed. This, however, is not the only reason. Medicine has also failed because it treats the symptom and not the patient. The painkiller or whatever chemical substance doctors prescribe only attenuate the pain. They disillusion the patient and make him unaware of the pain which still exists inside his soul and body rather than going to the source and finding out why the patient feels that way.

Healing happens without medicine.
Medicine creates more sickness.
It is poison.

Healing happens within.
Medication happens at the surface – outside the soul.

Medication “heals” the pain (outside).
Meditation heals the sickness (inside).

Healing needs to happen from within.
Through meditation.
Meditation is the only healing power.

I reject mainstream medicine (allopathy) because, as anything else, it is just another tool used by the system to control human beings and to make them numb, unaware, stupid and ignorant. Today, people don’t need to take drugs anymore in order to be numb. The system is making sure that numbness becomes the status of the human being in every day life.
The system is using its knowledge or science and is presenting it so well to us. They use discourse power, manipulative words. They talk about the development of modernity or the development of science as if it is something to celebrate. And people follow. They drink too much of the “development” bottle which contains a bad virus. So, they end up believing that today we are living in a developed and advanced world thanks to the technological and scientific advancements in the medical field, which apparently contributed to a high decrease of the mortality rate in the “developed” countries and an increase in longevity.
If we are really so developed then why is humanity suffering so much? Why do people get cancer, headaches, etc? These are all diseases or pains that are unknown in most Southern countries. My grandmother who lives in a village and who has always lived simple and natural, has never experienced all these pains and when she feels some sort of pain then she heals herself with herbs or meditation. This way is what today is know as “indigenous knowledge” and which is not considered a developed science. The only result is that my grandmother is healed and those who live a modern metropolitan life are filled with chemical pills and painkillers in order to “heal”. Who is the developed one now, my granny or the “system people”?
The truth is that we all possess healing power. It lies within us. We have only forgotten it and are too taken by the “developments” of modern science. Of course, the system, does not like people like me – people who are here to reawaken our lost truth, our own healing power.

I have always been cleaned and never taken any sort of medicine.
I am so grateful to my mum who decided to heal me naturally when I had fiver at 40 degrees. She strengthened my immune system so much that my body reproduces anti-corps without any effort.
A healed person, however, is not a person who combats his sickness, but a person who remains healthy and healed. Healing, therefore, is a natural state of the human being who by nature was born conscious and aware. An aware person goes deep into his soul and knows exactly what is happening to him right from the start of his existence. An aware person does not need a doctor because he will always be healthy and healed. Being healthy is our nature.
Those who have forgotten about their beautiful nature can find their path and get their healing power back.
They need to go from medication to mediation, like Osho says.

doctors are not healers
In line with this I’d like to outline the difference between a doctor and a healer, in case you are convinced that a doctor is a healer.

Doctors cure the patient after he has fallen sick.
Healers maintain the patient healthy.

Doctors make you unaware of the pain without killing it. As a result, the disease will remain and properly spread, but you won’t notice it at the moment only.
Healers show you the way of meditation through which you see the root of the pain and are able to destroy it.

Doctors are doers.
Healers are non-doers.

For example, aspirin represses – anger remains hidden inside you, violence goes on raging inside you. You only keep the alarm shut, that’s all. Nothing changes, only the alarm is no longer there. This goes on and on, and it becomes more and more accumulated. It may give you cancer.
Real health needs to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no birth, no death. It is eternal. And to be healthy in consciousness means: first, to be awake; second, to be harmonious; third, to be ecstatic, and forth, to be compassionate (Osho 1994, 29-34).

our wholeness
I agree with Osho according to who Western science has viewed man as a separate unit. Man, however, is an organic unity who needs not only the treatment of the part that is sick. The sick part is only the symptom that the whole organism is going through difficulties. The sick part is only showing it because it is the weakest. If you treat the sick part only, the disease will still remain since the sick part is just a part of the wholeness (Osho 1994, 35).
Western medicine ignores the soul of the man.
Man is soul – mind and spirit in a body.
Man is psychosomatic.
“Western medicine does not accept that there is any subject in you. It only accepts your body; it does not accept you (Osho 1994, 37).
Sickness is objective and the feeling of well-being is subjective. Therefore, there cannot be one unique medicine that cures the same sickness in different patients since the result will be different.
The illness is the same in every human being, for instance, let’s say it is cancer, while the source of this illness is different in every human being- it can be anger, feelings of rejection, oppression, repression, etc. All these feelings have a different nature, but the same result: cancer.
Cancer, therefore, cannot be prevented or healed through medicine (objectivity), but through meditation (subjectivity).

fragmenting our wholeness is the cause of all diseases
It is worth noticing how the system actually produces the virus (religions, doctrines, rules, etc) in order to classify people and give them certain rules they need to obey to. At the same time it produces the antivirus, namely the medicine to “cure” the people from their sickness. Pay attention: religions, for instance, or any other doctrine, are just labels full of rules which ought to be followed by the people. How can the people follow rules if they are wild by nature and will therefore, sooner or later, reject their own religion?
Sooner or later people will realize that they can actually not fit into the box they have chosen or were given on the day they were born. So, they start rebelling or struggling inside. The system and any other outer body (family, school etc) will make them feel guilty and convince them that they are not good people, that they are not behaving well or according to the criteria of a good human being. This manipulation has a strong impact on the psyche and consciousness of a human being. It drives him crazy, insane. This madness is the pain that he will feel and which the doctor wants to “cure” with medicine, namely another substance that comes from the outside rather than making him focus on the inside. The truth is that doctors are members of the system. They have no intention of making thier patient focus on their inside. That’s why medicine is considered the best means to “cure” people. In reality, however, medicine has failed. Medicine is the outer substance. Meditation is the inner substance. Inner pain can only be healed inside, within.

health is the presence of health
Health is NOT the absence of sickness, but a state of well-being.
Health has nothing to do with sickness. So, why is mainstream interfering again and giving it a negative connotation?
Again, I’d like to invite people to pay attention to discourse and the way the system manipulates society with the use of words. It’s a strategic and well organized game they are playing.
Making humanity sick is their benefit. It is the interest of capitalism.
If everyone knew this secret, capitalism would not survive since there would be no need for medicine, doctors, science, etc.
The system wants to hypnotize us. By following the system we are deviated from our own truth, our own power of existence. We have lost this wisdom which lies inside of us and is now covered with all the layers or concepts constructed by the system.

being healthy rather than becoming healthy
As Confucius says, everybody should pay the doctor for keeping him healthy, not for curing him. If he falls sick, then the expenses go on the doctor; the medicines and all the expenses – and his salary will be cut too because he has not been taking care of the man (Osho 1994, 34).
We are doing exactly the opposite. We are paying doctors for “curing” us with medicine or poison.
“You treat one disease, but you treat it with poison: the disease will be gone but the poison will be left in the system. It is a fact and proof that man will be able to live at least three hundred years; that is a scientific estimate. His body has the possibility to go on renewing itself for three hundred years. So, whatever we have been doing is basically wrong because man dies at seventy (Osho 1994, 39).

communicate to the energy
Gregg Braden gives us a very detailed explanation of how our energy works in the Divine Matrix.
The Divine Matrix is the energy field which surrounds us, and to which we can talk through the vibrations of our heart. These vibrations are feelings which emanate a certain energy. This energy has a profound impact on the Divine Matrix and therefore determines our life, moment, experience.
The ability to talk or communicate to the Divine Matrix is innate and everybody has it.
The system or the Matrix (referring to the movie The Matrix) surrounds us and has raped our consciousness. People’s consciousness has been violated so much that people have just forgotten how to talk to this energy field.
The synchronicity between our energy and the outer energy or Divine Matrix is our healing power.
Learning how to talk to this energy field determines our health and well-being.

numbing consciousness
Malcolm X speaks the truth in his speech “message to the grassroots”. Here he explains the difference between the house Negro and the field Negro. He highlights man’s numb consciousness. He goes deeper into the topic and uses a metaphor which depicts the wider picture of man in our society. Malcolm is referring to Afroamericans living in America who were kept under control. His speech applies to the entire humanity today. We are all filed Negroes today, no matter what colour our skin is. The system (religious uncle Toms) is controlling us. It is controlling our consciousness. We are on a roller coaster. Like Malcolm X says, we suffer peacefully. It is like when the dentist is going to pull your teeth out and your pain is attenuated through anaesthetic (Novocaine). You are bleeding everywhere. Yet, you are told to suffer peacefully.

“You bleed when the white man says bleed. You bite when the white man says bite. You bark when the white man says bark. If violence is wrong in America, then violence is wrong abroad.” -Malcolm X

touching – the language of love

rose

I was reading “From Medication to Meditation” by Osho the other day and I came across a passage which touched my heart again. It is about the healing power of our hands through massage. I’d like to quote a part of this passage:

“Massage is something that you can start learning but you never finish. It goes on and on, and the experience becomes continuously deeper and deeper, and higher and higher. Massage is one of the most subtle arts – and it is not only a question of expertise. It is more a question of love. Learn the technique – then forget it. Then just feel, and move by feeling. When you learn deeply, ninety per cent of the work is done by love, ten percent by the technique. By just the very touch, a loving touch, something relaxes in the body. If you love and feel compassion for the other person, and feel the ultimate value of him; if you don’t treat him as if he is a mechanism to be put right, but an energy of tremendous value; if you are grateful that he trusts you and allows you to play with his energy – then by and by you will feel as if you are playing on an organ. The whole body becomes the keys of the organ and you can feel that a harmony is created inside the body. Not only will the person be helped, but you also. Massage is needed in the world because love has disappeared. Once the very touch of lovers was enough. A mother touched the child, played with his body, and it was enough, more than enough. It was deep relaxation and part of love. But that has disappeared from the world. By and by we have forgotten where to touch, how to touch, how deep to touch. In fact touch is one of the most forgotten languages. We have become almost awkward in touching, because the very word has bee corrupted by so-called religious people. They have given it a sexual colour. The word has become sexual and people have become afraid. Everybody is on guard not to be touched unless he allows it. Now in the West the other extreme has come. Touch and massage have become sexual. Now massage is just a cover, a blanket, for sexuality. In fact neither touch or massage are sexual. They are foundation of love. When love falls from its height it becomes sex, and then it becomes ugly. So be prayerful. When you touch the body of a person be prayerful – as if God himself is there, and you are just serving him. Flow with total energy. And whenever you see the body flowing and the energy creating a new pattern of harmony, you will feel a delight that you have never felt before. You will fall into deep meditation. While massaging, just massage. Don’t think of other things because those are distractions. Be in your fingers and your hands as if your whole being, your whole soul is there. Don’t let it be just a touch of the body. Your whole soul enters into the body of the other, penetrates it, relaxes the deepest complexes. And make it a play, don’t do it as a job; make it a game and take it as fun. Laugh and let the other laugh too. Massage is to come to a rapport with the energy of somebody else’s body and to feel where it is missing, to feel where the body is fragmentary and to make it whole…to help the energy of the body so it is no longer fragmentary, no longer contradictory. When the energies of the body are falling into line and becoming as orchestra, then you succeed. So be very respectful of a human’s body. It is the very shrine of God, the temple of god. So, with deep reverence, learn your art. It is one of the greatest things to learn.”

be full of you

the ocean 2

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).

Be silent.
Listen to yourself.
Do not reach out for people.
You are your treasure.
