Osho on Gopi Krishna Kundalini Views on
Kundalini and real Truth
Why dont I have any other question than this one?
I am not enlightened so I feel my mind is becoming Dull
Osho - It is just the other way round. Your mind is dull that's why you
are not getting enlightened! Now you are putting things in completely
the wrong sequence. Don't wait for enlightenment to come and don't hope
that when enlightenment comes then you will be intelligent.
It will never come. Intelligence is the first requirement for it to
happen at all. Intelligence is the preparation for it. Be intelligent.
Behave intelligently. Live intelligently. Otherwise enlightenment is not
going to happen at all. If you are hoping that one day enlightenment
will come and then you will be intelligent, a genius, you are wrong.
There are a few people who go on saying nonsense things like this. One
of them is old Pundit Gopi Krishna. He thinks that when kundalini arises
one becomes a genius, one becomes tremendously intelligent. This is not
true. If you are tre-mendously intelligent only then does your kundalini
arise. otherwise not. If Gopi Krishna is right, it means that a
dull-head, a stupid person, can make his kundalini rise and can become
intelligent. That is impossible.
To help your energy rise and soar high you will need tremendous
intelligence, sharp intelligence. Otherwise you will not be able to
bring your energy up so high. A stupid person cannot do that.
Enlightenment, nirvana, moksha, liberation, the arousal of your
kundalini whatsoever the name -- are just names, symbolic. But one thing
is certain: intelligence has to precede them. You cannot afford to be
stupid and hope that someday something will happen and you will become
enlightened. Then you are hoping in vain. You will have to create
How to create intelligence? First become more and more alert in small
things. Walking along the road, become more alert, try to be more alert.
For such a simple process walking along the road -- you need not have
any alertness. You can remain stupid and walk well. That's what everyone
is doing. The stupidity does not hinder you at all. Start from small
things. Taking your bath, be alert; standing under the shower, become
very alert. That cold water falling on you, the body enjoying it...
become alert, become conscious of what is happening, be relaxed yet
And this moment of consciousness has to be brought in again and again,
in a thousand and one ways: eating, talking, meeting a friend, listening
to me, meditating, making love. In all situations try to become more and
more alert. It is hard, it is certainly difficult, but it is not
impossible. Slowly, slowly, the dust will disappear and your mirror-like
consciousness will reveal itself; you will become more intelligent.
Then live intelligently. You live in such a confused way, in such a
stupid way, that if you see somebody else living that way you will
immediately say that he is stupid. But you are doing the same, although
somehow one manages not to look at one's own life.
