“The sense of oneness has no effect other than a deep and vast knowing of who/what ‘I’ am. Rather than a physical body, which is merely a necessity for this incarnation and learning phase, there is a perception of boundless energy, entirely joyful and wholly free,” writes Bhagawati.
The first contact with Osho felt like a lightning bolt passing through my entire physical body, top to bottom. I have perceived such bolts throughout the years since, every time sensing a transmission; they have, however, become gentler!
Osho in whatever form or by whatever name is an invitation to all those who are making an effort toward increased consciousness. He has invited hundreds of thousands while in his physical body, and continues to call from the other dimension to prompt their memory of oneness with the whole – and so is pushing them to find out who they are.
It is difficult to express this knowing in words: On the one hand, it is a very simple phenomenon, on the other, not of this manifest reality.
In the oneness of Universe/consciousness that we all exist in, Osho is always available, without any boundaries – and so is every living entity. It’s just that after reincarnating we have forgotten all about that. We have never ever been separate from the Universe, yet we have given power to the mind to convince us otherwise.
The sense of oneness has no effect other than a deep and vast knowing of who/what “I” am. Rather than a physical body, which is merely a necessity for this incarnation and learning phase, there is a perception of boundless energy, entirely joyful and wholly free.
The notion of oneness has become very clear and manifest within. I had the sense of oneness on occasion way back in the seventies, and this has remained unclouded ever since. It has enabled me to exist gratefully in this world, to be a witness to the constantly unfolding drama on this planet and the endless repetitions of the karmic wheel. A rather abrupt and intense final recognition happened when Osho left his physical body – a liberation from the attachment to his physical form.
