Osho - First thing in the
morning stretch your body like a cat so you can feel energy, move like a
cat, and then laugh, and only then get out of the bed. Then the whole day is
going to be different. Then we will be doing three meditations in the day. In the morning a
meditation of four steps, the last really not a step but a jump.
minutes of fast chaotic breathing. This breathing is used just like a hammer
to hammer your energies, particularly energies which are hidden in the sex
center. And you exist right now as a sex center, because your whole energy
moves into that center. Your contact with the world is through that center,
you are related to the world through that center. And unless energy erupts
upwards, flows upwards to other centers which are there, nonfunctioning, you
cannot change, you cannot be transformed.
The higher the energy
moves, through higher centers you are related to the world. When from the
highest center you relate to the world, you have become divine and the whole
world is divine; from the lowest center, sex, you are an animal and the
whole world is also animal. Darwins and Huxleys and others who have worked
hard to prove that man has evolved out of animals are right, their research
is right, but they have not studied a buddha; they have studied the ordinary
The ordinary human being is related with the animal kingdom. He remains an
animal, just a little more sophisticated. Mark Twain writes somewhere that
the cauliflower is a cabbage with a college education. That’s the only
difference between animal and man – a little more sophisticated animal with
a college education, with a culture. But he remains an animal, and because
he is educated he becomes more dangerous. The higher your energy moves, the
more new realms of existence will be revealed to you.
And if the Upanishads... if Vedantins, Buddha and Jesus and people like them
have declared that everyone is divine, they could say so only because they
were related to the universe from their highest center. Your energy has to
be moved from the sex center to the sahasrar, that which is hidden in your
head. This chaotic breathing, the first step, is just to be used as a
hammer. It works, it is not a theory; you can do it and you can know it, and
you will know it.
second step for ten minutes
will be of catharsis. You have to bring out, act out, whatsoever you have
been suppressing up to now. Whatsoever you have suppressed has to be thrown
out, because only then can you become flowerlike, weightless, and only then
can you fly, only then can you rise upwards. All the burden has to be
I have heard one story
about Hotei, a Zen master. One day he was passing through a village. On his
shoulders he always carried a very big bag full of many toys, chocolates and
sweets for children. Somebody asked him, ”Hotei, we have heard that you are
just playing a role, acting. We have heard that you are a Zen master, so why
do you go on wasting your time just giving toys to children? And if you are
really a Zen master then show us what Zen is.” Zen means the real spirit of
Hotei dropped his bag, immediately he dropped his bag. They couldn’t follow,
so they said, ”What do you mean?” He said, ”This is all. If you drop the
burden, this is all.”
They asked, ”Okay, then what is the next step?”
So he put his bag again on his shoulders and started walking. ”This is the
next step. But now I am not carrying. I know now that the burden is not me.
Now the whole burden has become just toys for children and they will enjoy
The second step is to drop the bag that you are carrying, and carry it again
only when you are not carrying it. Then you can carry the whole world; then
there is no problem – you are not identified with it. The second step is to
drop the bag. So be Hotei, and drop whatsoever you have been carrying so
long. And it is just ugly, whatsoever you are carrying. Sadness, ugliness,
hatred, suffering, anger, jealousy – things like this you are carrying. And
if you have become a big wound it is no surprise, it is what you are
So in the second step you have to throw down whatsoever there is in it. You
will look mad, because madness is there. You have been suppressing it up to
now. Your sanity is false, it is just on the surface, not even skin-deep.
You can be made insane immediately. Someone hits you and the sanity is gone,
someone insults you and the sanity is gone. It is not even skin-deep, it is
just there boiling. You are carrying yourself somehow. You are a miracle.
How do you go on with so many madnesses within? How do you manage it?
In the second step don’t manage, just throw it out. Become mad, go mad.
Remember, when you become mad consciously you remain a witness. Madness is
beautiful if you are conscious – you enjoy it. The more you throw it out the
less burdened you are, and you feel that your energy is purified. You feel
that now you can fly in the sky. Now there are no boundaries to you, you
have become weightless. Now the whole gravitation of the earth cannot pull
you down to the earth, you have become greater.
You can transcend this pull now; this pull works because you carry so much
burden. The second step is to go mad consciously. Those who are intelligent
will go mad consciously, those who are stupid will go on holding. So don’t
be stupid; be a man of understanding and try it.
step is a Sufi mantra, hoo; not w-h-o, just h-o-o – hoo without meaning. This is just a sound with
no meaning at all; it has a significance but no meaning. It is just a
technique. This sound hoo goes deepest in you, hits your deepest center,
releases energy. Your whole body becomes aflame with a new energy that you
have not known because you have never hit it. You are so afraid of yourself
that you never hit your sources of energy, because you don’t know what you
will do if much energy comes to you, and you are also afraid you may do
something wrong if energy comes to you.
So people remain consciously weak. If you are afraid of sex you will be
afraid of energy, because if energy comes it will start moving in the sex
center. Then what to do? So these so-called saints go on starving their
bodies just to remain weak; their whole saintliness is nothing but a sort of
weakness, a sort of impotence. And an impotent person can never be holy –
because you don’t have energy to be holy. If you don’t have energy to be
unholy, how can you have energy to be holy? The same energy moves from
unholiness to holiness.
The third is just a
technique, a sound which hits your hidden sources of energy which you are
scared to hit. Your whole body will become aflame with new life, new energy,
new heat, new electricity, and when your whole body has become vital, every
cell of it, only then the jump can be taken, never before it. Religion is
not for weak people. Of course, if you go looking in temples, mosques and
churches you will find weak persons there, kneeling down, praying – just
They are there because they are weak and they are in search of some help:
somebody to protect them, somebody to give them security, safety. But I say
to you, religion is not for the weak, it is only for the strong, because it
is such a jump. It is a total jump from the known to the unknown. The weak
cannot take it. They can travel step by step, but they can never take a
jump. And remember, if you travel step by step, gradually, you are never
transformed; you are at the most modified. You remain the same.
A little refined, modified, a little change here and there, but you remain
the same. A little better looking, but all ugliness hidden inside, just
colored. Only those who are strong enough, who are erupting with energy,
exploding with energy, can take the jump. And this is the greatest jump and
the greatest challenge – from the known into the unknown. Whatsoever you are
you know, and where I am trying to indicate is the unknown. In all these
days the abyss will be just near you. Any moment you can jump, but you will
have to create energy.
This third step is to
create energy, to make a volcano – and then I will leave it to you. When I
see that now you are boiling, exploding, I will say, ”Stop.” And when I say
stop, don’t go on doing things. Whatsoever you were doing, stop immediately,
go dead, because if you go on doing you will lose energy and the jump will
not be possible. When I say stop, stop exactly at that moment. When you hear
me say stop after the third step, you stop as you are. Even if the posture
is uncomfortable don’t change it, don’t make it comfortable, because here we
are not in search of comfort.
And don’t deceive, because you are not deceiving anybody except yourself.
When I say stop, it is meaningful that I am saying it at that particular
moment. It is when I feel that now you have worked up, you have created the
energy; now the right peak has been reached. When I say stop, stop
immediately. Become a statue, a stone, a rock – no movement. Don’t allow the
energy to be expressed in any way, so the energy becomes integrated within
and it comes with such a force that you can take the jump. The jump will
happen by itself; you just create the energy. When I say stop, you stop.
fourth step is a jump.
You remain silent, just like a rock. In that moment of silence and stoppage,
energy will be there – so much you cannot hold it; it will have to explode.
And it will move from the sex center upwards. As it moves upwards you will
feel a transformation, a change. You are not the same; moment to moment
something else is coming into being. When this energy touches the head
center, the last center, sahasrar... Hindus have said it is as if a lotus of
one thousand petals has opened suddenly. You are filled with benediction,
bliss, beatitude. This for the morning.
