Success? Failure? The difference between success and failure: it’s how you look at it.

As I am working to strengthen the integrity of my site (slow going and a lot of mundane work) I re-read some of my earlier articles, and I am amazed how good they are.

I wish I could just take a metaphorical funnel and pour them all in your brain... But...

You probably would not be able to use any of it.

Anything you don't earn, or you don't feel your earned will be rejected by your higher self...

At some period in my life I wrote articles about strippers and strip clubs, and was stupefied by the strippers' behavior. They earned their money in a way that their higher self did not condone, so they had to get rid of all their money, and fast.

Some, where this inner conflict didn't exist, invested their money and became rich.

Life, money, success, failure is how you look at it.

This is what this article is about... Continue reading "Success? Failure? The difference between success and failure: it’s how you look at it."

What’s wrong with Osho? Why is his vibration so low? Why is his teaching so pleasant?

osho talksI just watched/listened to two Osho talks... And suddenly I realized what I have never seen: why Osho's vibration is not higher. It dropped from 300 to 280... as more of reality gets revealed, everyone's vibration gets lower. Seneca's vibration today is 300, but when he was alive, it was around 800.

So Osho died 25 years ago, give or take, and his vibration, consequently dropped.

OK... so what's wrong with Osho? After all it is so soothing, so wonderful to listen to him.

Updated: A man of understanding never thinks, he simply looks at the fact. The very look reveals

Osho 1This article was written around my darkest hour...

It is still valid... but I have added some new insights to it... and I am adding a new distinction: the third brain... The brain that sees accurately through pattern recognition...

I have been looking at Osho. And I just ran out of new things to read, I opened the Mustard Seed talks at exactly this place.

All those that have come before me with the lofty goal to return Man to innocence and mindlessness, have failed. I believe that Jesus, if he ever lived, committed suicide by cop.

And I am more and more convinced that so did Osho. Suicide by cop... or a version of it.

Why would men so much ahead of their brethren with such a lofty ideal want to die? I'll answer that after you read this quote from the Mustard Seed, Osho's collected talks on Jesus and the Gospel of Thomas... the doubting Thomas from the New Testament.

The mind is drunk. It cannot see the present, that which is before you. The mind is filled with dreams, desires. You don’t have a presence. That’s why Jesus is missed, Buddha is missed, Krishna is missed, and then for centuries you weep and cry, then for centuries you feel guilty. For centuries you think, pray, imagine, and when Jesus is there you miss. Jesus can be met only if you attain to a presence of mind, such a presence that has no past, that has no future. Only such a presence can look into the present, and then the present is eternal. But eternity is in depth, it is not a linear movement, it is not horizontal – it is vertical.

Osho on the pathless path

osho-on-zenTHE ANCIENTS SAID:

"(SELF-)CULTIVATION TAKES AN UNIMAGINABLE TIME (WHILE) ENLIGHTENMENT IN AN INSTANT IS ATTAINED."

IF THE TRAINING IS EFFICIENT, ENLIGHTENMENT WILL BE ATTAINED IN ONE FINGERSNAP.

IN DAYS GONE BY CH'AN MASTER HUI CHUEH OF LANG YEH MOUNTAIN, HAD A DISCIPLE WHO CALLED ON HIM FOR INSTRUCTION. THE MASTER TAUGHT HER TO EXAMINE INTO THE SENTENCE: "TAKE NO NOTICE."

SHE FOLLOWED HIS INSTRUCTION STRICTLY WITHOUT BACKSLIDING.

ONE DAY HER HOUSE CAUGHT FIRE, BUT SHE SAID: "TAKE NO NOTICE."

ANOTHER DAY, HER SON FELL INTO THE WATER AND WHEN A BYSTANDER CALLED HER, SHE SAID: "TAKE NO NOTICE."

SHE OBSERVED EXACTLY HER MASTER'S INSTRUCTION BY LAYING DOWN ALL CASUAL THOUGHTS.

Weeping looking back at the path

weeping over lossHere I am this cool Saturday morning, weeping.

I observe. What is there? Pain, definitely. Sense of loss, yes. Sadness, no. Regret, no. Resentment, no.

I have had a hard life. The hardest part is the last 30 years. Maybe 33... Since I left Hungary.

In Hungary I had friends. I had people who would want me around, who would walk with me, who would vouch for me.

Magic, miracles, energy work, woo woo… can you tell what you are getting?

magiciansI don't believe in miracles. I don't believe in spirits, angels, gods, dead people talking, walking, I don't even believe in soul surviving your death. But I like magicians and magic tricks.

When you watch magic, it seems easy. It seems fast. I seems magical... doesn't it?

Real magic takes hours, weeks, months worth of preparation, manufacturing of special equipment, without those most magic tricks will never happen.

I won't mention the lots of practice here, because it doesn't fit my agenda... lol.

I only rarely talk to other "spiritual teachers" or "energy practitioners", because I am not attracted to them, we don't seem to have anything in common.

But occasionally life throws one my way, and I have to talk to them.

This happened this past week, and it just hit me that I learned something important: they are magicians.

Osho: What is jealousy and why does it hurt so much to be jealous?

jealousy, envy, all signs of desire for the self aloneI have been spending the last few days meditating, muscle testing, contemplating why it is that different people from different ethnic cultures are so different in one main aspect: caring.

Caring means that you are willing to consider another as important as yourself. And just the way you would not hurt yourself consciously and intentionally, you would not hurt another.

As it turns out, even after the DNA upgrade, only 19% of the population has the capacity to care. The rest refused to accept the DNA upgrade... remember, the ground rule is free will.

I have muscle tested different ethnic groups, and within the same ethnic group, I found, the DNA changed, and in the other ethnic groups it did not.

What is your approach to spirituality? Feminine and Masculine? Osho on silence

masculine-feminine-energies-behaviorThis article is not for everyone. If you haven't been a seeker, this is not for you. This article is quotes from an email conversation with a client who can't create a powerful blockage to energetic, malicious, attachments and spells...

What is your approach to spirituality? Feminine and Masculine?

Feminine is: waiting for it to come to you, passive.

Spirituality, access to the beyond, your relationship to life needs to be feminine... an agressive male approach will take you away from what you are trying to accomplish.

This whole topic came up because a student of mine needs to frequently cloak herself. She also wants to bubble.

Cloaking is very easy, and enough for temporary protection against attachments, but she wants to bubble herself too. Why? I didn't ask.

Anything you pursue is running from you…

hard-to-fly
I visited a website today that is packed with articles about 5 steps to this and 7 steps to that, about happiness, about your body, about money.

And people are eating it up. They share it. They comment... Yaay, some different ways to pursue what you desire.

But all those readers are like lemmings throwing themselves off the cliff... What?

This past week I took a break from nonfiction reading, and have been reading novels and novellas again.

What’s between you and you

Comfy-Anime-Themed-Workspace-Design-with-Comic-Figurines-in-the-ShelvesAbout 30 years ago, I didn't have a car, and I had to beg a ride every time I wanted to go to Landmark to assist.

I spent hours in cars, in conversations I would not have had otherwise.

I talked to people at length that I would never have talked to. It enriched my life.

One of these people, half my age, drove me back and forth every Sunday. We talked a lot. She had a room full of stuff, neatly organized, figurines and such.
