Looking at death from the point of view of what it teaches us about life will transform the quality and vision of our life.
This process is valuable for all who want to explore the phenomenon of death, out of personal or professional concerns, as well as for those who want to find the inner motivation for authentic living and new priorities their life.We learn to open for the mystery and the possible gift that death can bring to our life: Nothing can make the urgency for love, compassion and meditation more clear than the fact that we are not here forever.
An authentic awakening is possible only when we accept and understand our physical impermanence and realize our immortal consciousness.
When time disappears, everything disappears because the whole world of desire, ambition, motivation is there because of the wrong conception of time. Time is created; time as process -- past, present, future -- is created by desiring.
This is one of the greatest insights of the Eastern sages: that time, the process, is really a projection of desire. Because you desire something, you create future. And because you cling, you create past. Because you cannot leave that which is no longer before you, and you want to cling to it, you create memory. And because that which has not come yet, you expect it in your own way, you create future. Future and past are mental states, not part of time. Time is eternal. It is not divided. It is one, whole. - Osho

"To recognize the psychological pattern of a person, as it is indicated in the birth horoscope, has become an important presupposition for inner transformational work. To interpret these clear indications as the path of the soul through this life, and to transmit them as an orientation for the next steps towards inner growth, is an important purpose and a great joy for me."
The sages and mystics of the world’s spiritual traditions have taught us about subtle dimensions of awareness, saturated with the sacred, that lie beyond the exclusive, personal sense of “me.” Learning to abide tranquilly in these dimensions leads us directly to the merging of our consciousness with Spirit. We seem to need special conditions to transform us, to move awareness beyond the ego.
When we begin to heal the previous split between shadow and persona, we experience a deeper sense of our own being, owning all our parts. This is experienced as healing.
Most spiritual traditions speak of this as the beginning of authentic living, the beginning of entering the path.
When we heal the split between mind and body, recognizing their essential unity, we experience a deeper sense of existence. The Sufi tradition calls this dimension of awareness “Divine Life.”
When we heal the split between life and death, we move into a timeless consciousness, birthless and deathless, where we know ourselves to be the clear light of awareness itself. In Buddhism, this is recognized as our Original Nature.
When we heal the dualism between self and other, we enter a unitive consciousness, melting into the Divine.
It is important to understand that when doing meditation, you are making a commitment to something other than your restless mind. Meditation is not the time to be figuring things out or analyzing your experience.
Neither should you be fighting your mind or trying to make it quiet. Just watch thoughts as you would watch clouds passing by in the sky. There is nothing personal about your thoughts. They are just phenomena passing through awareness.
Meditation is not a technique to master; it is the highest form of prayer, a naked act of love and effortless surrender into the silent abyss beyond all knowing.
