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?”

the language of human emotions

I came across this beautiful Zen story while I was reading The Four Insights by Alberto Villoldo, which makes us aware of how the universe works, namely that there is an intrinsic greater power shaping the moment we are living. This power serves the completion of a greater picture and not the very moment itself.
This moment is just a small part of a greater moment coming up. This greater moment is unknown to you, but you can sense it if your level of intuition is highly developed, if you are connected to the divine (which for me is Allah). Your level of intuition depends on how much you are letting your mind work. For you to be highly intuitive you need to be mindless. Let your thoughts flow naturally towards you, but do not judge them. Just look at them and accept them. Don’t let the mind allow to be your master. The heart is the only master. The mind follows.

So, whatever you are living is not what is happening to you, but what you make happen. This moment is the result of synchronized energy. This energy is made of molecules or vibrations which the heart emanates through emotions and feelings and these molecules interact with the energy of the universe. The result of this interaction is the moment we are living. As you can see, you have enormous power to create and shape your life and the outer world.
As Michael Jackson says in his song Man in the Mirror “If you wanna make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make a change.”
What you see inside is what is outside.
The Divine Matrix gives a wider picture of my argument. It contains the key of all times. It is about the language of the universe which everyone of us is able to speak since its code lies in our DNA, our emotions, feelings.

Outside of your body there is energy. Everything you see has got a soul. It is alive. Your feelings have extraordinary power over the outer energy. This means that whatever you feel will be mirrored outside.
If you feel anger, you will see anger. If you feel joy, you will see joy. It’s a logical mathematical equation.
I call this equation the energy of the spirit or human emotions. Any feeling of yours is felt by the flower, the tree, the water of the ocean, the birds, and anything else. Your feelings have a strong effect on everything.

the Zen story

A farmer had a horse, but one day it ran away, so the farmer and his son had to plow the fields by hand. Their neighbours said, “Oh, what bad luck that your horse ran away!” The farmer simply replied, “Bad luck, good luck – who knows?”
The next week the horse returned to the farm, bringing a herd of wild horses with him. “What great luck!” exclaimed the neighbours, but the farmer responded, “Good luck, bad luck-who knows?” Then the farmer’s son was thrown as he tried to ride one of the wild horses, and he broke his leg. “Ah, such rotten luck,”sympathized the neighbours. Again, the farmer responded, “Bad luck, good luck-who knows?”
A few weeks later, the king recruited all the young men into his army to prepare for battle. The son, with his broken leg, was left at home. “What good luck that your son was not forced to go to war!” exclaimed the neighbours. And the farmer remarked, “Good luck, bad luck-who knows?”

Poetic Lyric

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.
