NEW TO MEDITATION OR EXPERIENCED. ALL ARE WELCOME.
LLast year, Mr. Amar Chandel, an eloquent renowned writer & Naturopathy Yogi visited us from India to conduct the HOLISTIC HEALING COURSE. More than 15 friends took the course. We all agree that our life has taken major shift toward better health & peacefulness. Many of us lost more than 20 pounds in body weight without staying hungry & much physical exercise. Weight loss is just not only the benefits we received from the course; it brought much peace, guidance & brightness to our life. We have much more energy than what we had before taking the course. The benefits are enormous, personal & differ from individual to individual.
Mr. Chandel says�����Human body is capable of living 140 years, but starts decaying very soon between the ages of 30 to 50 & become aged or mortal at 70 just because we don���t apply simple secrets of Yogic health to our life.���
We all are witnesses here & strongly recommend this course to everyone who wants to live longer, healthy & peaceful. Mr. Chandel shares the simple secrets & uses special initiation technique to keep you motivated, charged towards maintaining your healthy life style. His techniques have cured thousands of people from several chronic diseases including Cancer.
I am glad to announce that he is coming back to Dallas in May to conduct the course from May 3rd to 7th. It���s a 5 days course around 2 hours in the evening & at the end of course of you will receive special yogic initiation which will help you in the meditation, deepen your relationship with the body & start a love affair with healthy living.��This course is not ordinary weight loss course. For the one who want to explore further, it���s a mysterious entry to find ultimate peace & health in life.
Here are more details of the course & more about Mr. Amar Chandel:
ABOUT THE HOLISTIC HEALING COURSE
���������������������� Emotional problems, diseases and pains have become a part of modern life. A majority of people suffer from headaches, migraine, sinus, blood pressure,��neck pain, backache,��diabetes, stress, jointache and what not, that too from a very young age. They spend a fortune on getting treatment, but the relief is only temporary. Medicines are not at fault. The real difficulty is that all these are lifestyle problems, which just cannot be eliminated till we change our day-to-day life. The course teaches you what the root causes of the ailments are and how to remove��them. These are some of the things that the course helps students in achieving:
1.����������Reducing their weight;��
������������������������The right approach is to take preventive steps so that one does not contract these diseases in the first place. But even those who have already got them can cure them at home without any medicines.��
1.����������Eating right without dieting.��
���������������������� In short, the course makes the students look better, be younger and live longer, healthier and happier. These five days can transform one's life. Many in the past have commented that had they done the course earlier in life, they would have avoided trouble and pain worth millions.��
������������������ Fiftyfour-year-old Amar Singh has been practising��integral yoga, naturopathy��and Holistic Healing for the past more than three decades. During this period, he has helped thousands of persons get rid of supposedly��incurable diseases��only through��lifestyle changes��without the help of any medicine.��
��His book, ���Perfect Health in 20 Weeks��� has been a huge draw.��
To maximize the benefits of the program, Mr Chandel has requested us to fill out the��attached��questionnaire to help him evaluate our personal situation. Although benefits of the program are very subtle, but weight management is most visible benefit of the program. Here Dr. Sandeep sent me before & after pictures of a couple who has benefited from the program. Mr. Chandel says "Before the course, Adarsh was 106 kg and his wife 81. Now two years later, he is 70 and she 61. If Adarsh and Ritika can do it. so can everybody else.���

Question ��� Sometimes I feel aware and sometimes not. Awareness seems to pulsate. Does this pulsating slowly disappear or does it go suddenly?
Osho����� In life everything is a rhythm. You are happy and then follows unhappiness. Night and day, summer and winter; life is a rhythm between two opposites. When you try to become aware the same rhythm will be there: sometimes you are aware and sometimes not.
So don���t create a problem, because you are such experts in creating problems that out of the blue you can create a problem. And once you have created a problem then you want to solve it. And then there are people who will supply you with answers. A wrong problem is always answered by a wrong answer. And then it can go on ad infinitum; then a wrong answer again creates questions.
From the very beginning one has to be aware not to create a wrong problem. Otherwise the whole of life goes on and on in the wrong direction. Always try to understand not to create a problem. Everything pulsates into a rhythm, and when I say everything, I mean everything. Love, and there is hate; awareness, and there is unawareness. Don���t create any problem: enjoy both.
While aware enjoy awareness, and while unaware enjoy unawareness ��� nothing is wrong, because unawareness is like a rest. Otherwise, awareness will become a tension. If you are awake twenty-four hours, how many days you think you can be alive? Without food a man can live for three months; without sleep, within three weeks he will go mad, and he will try to commit suicide. In the day you are alert; in the night you relax, and that relaxation helps you in the day again to be more alert, fresh. Energies have passed through a rest period; they are more alive in the morning again.
The same will happen in meditation: few moments you are perfectly aware, at the peak; few moments you are in the valley, resting ��� awareness has disappeared, you have forgotten. But what is wrong in it? It is simple. Through unawareness will arise again awareness, fresh, young, and this will go on. And if you can enjoy both you become the third, and that is the point to be understood.
If you can enjoy both it means you are neither ��� neither awareness nor unawareness, you are the one who enjoys both. Something of the beyond enters. In fact, this is the real witness. Happiness you enjoy ��� what is wrong when happiness has gone and you have become sad? What is wrong in sadness? Enjoy it. And once you become capable of enjoying sadness, then you are neither.
And this I tell you: that if you enjoy, sadness has its own beauties. Happiness is a little shallow; sadness is very deep, it has a depth into it. A man who has never been sad will be shallow, just on the surface. Sadness is like a dark night ��� very deep. Darkness has a silence into it, sadness also. Happiness bubbles, there is a sound in it. It is like a river in the mountains; sound is created. But in the mountains, river can never be very deep; it is always shallow. When the river comes to the plain it becomes deep, but the sound stops. It moves as if not moving. Sadness has a depth.
Why create trouble? While happy, be happy, enjoy it. Don���t get identified with it. When I say be happy, I mean enjoy it. Let it be a climate which will move and change. The morning changes into the noon, the noon changes into the evening, and then comes night. Let happiness be a climate around you. Enjoy it, and then comes sadness��� enjoy that too. I teach you enjoyment, whatsoever the case. Sit silently and enjoy sadness, and suddenly sadness is no more sadness; it has become a silent peaceful moment, beautiful in itself, nothing wrong in it.
And then comes the ultimate alchemy, the point where suddenly you realize you are neither ��� neither happiness nor sadness. You are the watcher ��� you watch peaks, you watch valleys; you are neither.
Once this point is attained, you can go on celebrating everything. You celebrate life and you celebrate death. You celebrate happiness, you celebrate unhappiness. You celebrate everything. Then you are not identified with any polarity. Both the polarities have become available to you together, and you can move from one to the other easily. You have become liquid-like, you flow. Then you can use both, and both can become a help into your growth.
Remember this: don���t create problems. Try to understand the situation, try to understand the polarity of life. In summer it is hot, in winter it is cold ��� so where is the problem? In winter enjoy cold, in summer enjoy heat. In summer enjoy the sun; in the night enjoy the stars and the darkness, in the day the sun and the light. You make enjoyment your continuity, whatsoever happens. In spite of it you go on enjoying. You try it, and suddenly everything is transfigured and transformed.
