OshO :: KNOWING THE MIND

http://www.otoons.de/weirdOtoons/entertainment1.htm

“The mind of man, his brain, has become a sick wound. It is no longer a healthy center, it has turned into an unhealthy ulcer. That is why all our attention is concentrated on it… [F]or twenty-four hours we are aware only of it and nothing else. The healthier a body is, the less it will be felt…

Without getting free of this wound, without becoming free of this very tense and very restless state of mind, no person can move towards his center of life… To escape from this state man searches for company, searches for a companion, searches for a friend, searches for society… searches for a crowd.

Man is afraid of aloneness. He becomes afraid of aloneness because in aloneness he will find a reflection of his real state, he will come across the reflection of his own face. And it will be very frightening, very scary.

So, from getting up in the morning till going to sleep at night, he uses all kinds of methods to escape from himself so that he doesn’t have to face himself. He is afraid that he may see himself. Man has invented thousands of ways to escape from himself…

We are all engaged in escaping from the self in one way or the other. This shows that our condition inside is getting worse and we are losing the courage even to look at it. We are very afraid to look in that direction…

The first thing in encountering the mind is… to have a direct encounter with what one essentially is. In one’s aloneness one has to open one’s mind totally and see what is there.

It is an act of courage. It is an act of tremendous courage to decide to enter into the hell hidden within oneself.” ~Osho

Holes in Heaven : A Documentary About HAARP

http://psychedelicadventure.blogspot.com/2011/05/holes-in-heaven-documentary-about-haarp.html

“H.A.A.R.P. (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a scientific research facility, located near Gakona, in the remote Alaskan outback and is a joint Navy and Air Force project. This facility is used to study the earth’s Ionosphere, the electrically-charged belt surrounding our planet’s upper atmosphere, ranging between 40 to 60 miles from its surface. More specifically, H.A.A.R.P. is a controversial high frequency radio transmitter, or “ionospheric heater.” …

HAARP is believed by some researchers to be responsible for some of the massive Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Hurricanes which we’ve seen in the recent times.”

Thirty-seven Bodhisattva Practices

http://www.zhaxizhuoma.net/DHARMA/Tripitaka/37BodisattvaPractices.htm

“Having gained this rare ship of freedom and fortune, hear, think and meditate unwaveringly night and day in order to free yourself and others from the ocean of cyclic existence …

Attached to your loved ones, you are stirred up like water. Hating your enemies, you burn like fire. In the darkness of confusion, you forget what to adopt and discard. Give up your homeland …

By avoiding bad objects, disturbing emotions gradually decrease. Without distraction, virtuous activities naturally increase. With clarity of mind, conviction in teaching arises. Cultivate seclusion …

Loved ones who have long kept company will part… Let go of this life …

When you keep their company your three poisons increase, your activities of hearing thinking and meditating decline, and they make you lose your love and compassion. Give up bad friends …

Like dew on the tip of a blade of grass, pleasures of the three worlds last only a while and then vanish. Aspire to the never-changing supreme state of liberation … This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.” ~Yelsay Togmay Sangpo

Alchemy: The Science of Enlightenment

http://www.scribd.com/doc/9272251/Alchemy-The-Science-of-Enlightenment

“The human body is the ultimate temple or alchemical laboratory where transformation takes place. The Spirit Body developed within the physical body is the ultimate vehicle of resurrection, ascension, and transcendence… Through the body and mind, one can realize ones true self.

The focus of alchemy is to accelerate the growth of the human soul within one lifetime to completion or perfection… Alchemy accelerates the process of evolution thereby allowing one to step off the wheel of birth and death. One transcends desire, duality, karma, space, and time…

Currently, the idea of enlightenment or spiritual soul liberation is not widely recognized or valued in modern culture where pursuit of the temporal and superficial overshadows fulfillment in the eternal. We shall see how the rediscovery of this vital knowledge manifests over the coming years. We have all incarnated at this momentous point in time to witness and participate in this grand cosmic drama.

The choices we all make will lay the foundation for our future destiny that holds the promise for the birth of a whole new global culture based on spiritual values. Humanity stands at the threshold of making the leap from Homo Sapien to Homo Luminous.”

Psychedelic Shamans Of The Amazon : The Ayahuasca Experience

http://psychedelicadventure.blogspot.com/2008/11/psychedelic-shamans-of-amazon-ayahuasca.html

“My journey into this mysterious world of the shamans of the amazon lasted three years. I’m left wondering, whose interests are really being served by keeping illegal these shamanic plants that can help you connect with yourself and the natural world? And how is it that humanity is allowing such unprecedented destruction of nature?

Meeting the shamans and taking ayahuasca led me to a world I could never imagined. A world that challenged my current concepts of reality, and made me question my life’s purpose and my relationship with everything.”

“Materialism is finishing our world. Our world is the Spirit of the trees, and the magic leaves.”
