were more simple, more authentic. They lived a more real life. Now, people
are living a very repressed life, a very unreal life.
When they don't want
to smile, they smile. When they want to be angry, they show compassion.
People are false, the whole life pattern is false. People are just acting,
not living. Many incomplete experiences go on being collected, piled up
inside their minds.
"Just sitting directly in silence won't help. The moment you will sit

to a natural state of rest. Real meditation starts only when you are at
All the dynamic meditations are preparatory to real meditation. They are
just basic requirements to be fulfilled so that the meditation can happen.

The real meditation starts only when all activity has ceased -- activity of
the body and activity of the mind.
