Osho

The Independent Mind

The spiritual search is not a religious exercise but a scientific understanding. Meditation is the method and experience is the transformative tool.
The market of people interested in meditation and mindfulness is growing exponentially. The New York Times</> in a recent article “My Meditation Binge, in a Nutshell” shows that meditation has become a “mainstream business practice and a kind of industry in its own right”
Osho is a meditation teacher whose focus for decades has been to develop and offer meditation methods that he insists are a scientific process and not a 'new age' or 'spiritual' or 'religious' practice.
This new book is a unique document showing how Osho not only taught the theory and understanding of meditation but also worked personally with individuals and groups of people to help them in their process of meditation and personal transformation.

    Your thoughts are not yours – you have gathered them together. Sometimes in a dark room, a beam of light comes from the roof and you can see millions of dust particles floating in that beam. When I look into you I see the same phenomenon: millions of dust particles. You call them thoughts. They are moving in you and out of you. From one head they enter another and on they go. They have their own life.

    A thought is a thing; it has its own existence. When a person dies, all his mad thoughts are released immediately and they start finding shelter somewhere or other. They immediately enter those who are nearby. They are like germs, they have their own life. Even when you are alive you go on dispersing your thoughts all around you. When you talk, of course you throw your thoughts into others. But when you are silent, you also throw thoughts around. They are not yours; that is the first thing.

    A man of positive reasoning will discard all thoughts that are not his own. They are not authentic, he hasn’t found them through his own experience. He has accumulated them from others, they are borrowed. They are dirty, and have been in many hands and in many heads. A man of thinking does not borrow, he likes to have fresh thoughts of his own. If you are positive, and look at beauty, truth, goodness, flowers; if you become capable of seeing even in the darkest night that the morning is approaching – you will become capable of thinking.

    You can then create your own thoughts. A thought that is created by you is really full of potential; it has a power of its own.
