By Swami Satya Vedant
Osho’s acute observation is that, increasing drives to have and possess as well as to use more and more things is based on a very fallacious assumption – having more is being happy! And this very assumption leads people to go after money, work overtime, and eventually cripple one’s mind and body. Man’s whole identity lies ultimately with money which lands him in a precariously vulnerable condition – being a spiritual drop out.
What has further exasperated the situation is that the work begins to get more and more fragmented besides being repetitious as well. Beneath the chase for money and the rat race for going ahead of all, the physical and mental state of man continues to get eroded leading one to daydreaming, frustration, and resentment. The feverishly busier a man becomes to fulfill his unmet desires, the greater the eruption of anger against people at work – including the employer, fatigue, and almost complete breakdown of ability to relate meaningfully whether at home or at the place of employment. Furthermore, the training deeply rooted in childhood to manage tension at work submissively leads one to repressing one’s emotional energy thereby making the person vulnerable to aggression and subsequently gets one into psychosomatic illnesses. Osho’s insight in this matter is clear, he says: “If you suppress energy then you will become aggressive -- don't suppress energy. This is one of the deepest problems for modern man.”
Moreover, both, the utilitarian ideologies and the unprecedented breakthrough in technology have opened the floodgates of unrestricted greed on the one hand and the sense of powerlessness and isolation of the individual on the other. One thing seems to be apparent: modern man cannot survive as what Osho calls, an “ambiguous being.” Man can no longer live a suspended existence. Hence Osho’s whole vision is given to building bridges between the polarities of work and meditation.
Osho explains, life is a continuum between movement and rest, action and let go, tension and relaxation, using and regaining energy. The human organism reacts in busy and stressful situations with the same pattern of response. Repeated for years physical, mental, emotional responses become habitual, conditioned. Unconsciously we move, think, sense, feel in known ways only – we avoid unknown territory. In our busy lives, the individual stress pattern is mainly directed by the unconscious.
So, in Osho’s view, how to become conscious of our unconscious is what meditation is all about. By becoming aware of our conditioned responses and patterns of behavior while being lost in our busy world we expand our freedom to choose an authentic way of life; we discover the dignity of being the masters of our busy life and our actions.
As far as meditation is concerned, Osho’s repertoire is vast – it contains something for everyone, something for all situations. There are special meditation techniques for working men and women, for couples, and for children. Osho reminds:
“Whatsoever you do, do it with deep alertness; then even small things become sacred. Then cooking or cleaning become sacred; they become worship. It is not a question of what you are doing, the question is how you are doing it. You can clean the floor like a robot, a mechanical thing; you have to clean it, so you clean it. Then you miss something beautiful. Then you waste those moments in only cleaning the floor. Cleaning the floor could have been a great experience; you missed it. The floor is cleaned but something that could have happened within you has not happened. If you were aware, not only the floor but YOU would have felt a deep cleansing. Clean the floor full of awareness, luminous with awareness. Work or sit or walk, but one thing has to be a continuous thread: make more and more moments of your life luminous with awareness. Let the candle of awareness burn in each moment, in each act.”
