Transforming by moving deeply into the known. Osho’s take.
"Interrupting your usual approach and pattern, pushing yourself into chaotic consciousness, can bust up your rigidity allowing you to become more fluid, more nimble. Unless you become more flowing you will never know the Divine, because the divine is an event, not a thing.
The Divine cannot be sought, it can only be found.
The very seeking becomes a barrier. The way through the barrier is by seeking the known, and there you will find the door to the unknown. The unknown is hidden in the known.
Instead of seeking the Divine, it is better to go into that which is you. Go deep into love, that which is known and near to you. Begin from the near. We are so anxious to go far we never take the first step. We ask for the last step first. You cannot take the last step first, the first has to be taken first.
“Seeking means seeking in time. Seeking is a deep postponement, because seeking is the future. It can never be in the present. How can you seek here and now? You can either be here and now or seek in the future. So the very mind that seeks, creates time, because time is needed; only then can you seek.”
Time is the by-product of desiring. The more you desire the more time you need.
Go deep into what is known to you, what life is to you. Whatever it may be, go deep into it. Go to its ultimate depth. The moment you go deep, you come to a different dimension. It is not going into the future, it is going deep into the present, into the moment.
In seeking you spread yourself out, and in BEING you are intense, and in that intensity in the moment, brings you to a certain crystallization. That happening of being becomes a door.
Any movement your body makes can be a jumping board. Dancing can be used, be dancing, not the dancer. The moment the dancer comes in dancing is destroyed. The moment comes when you are just movement, when there is no division. This is meditation. Eating can be used, walking….when there is no walker."
So in the beginning it is difficult. Repetition will help release you from the iron grip of the mind. The mind is the most destructive thing in you.
Many of the "Wisdom Keepers" understand that it is the mind that is our trap.
Go deep inside in the present……The blueprint to your transformation is there.
