Going inside

Darshans

In a darshan Osho says to Veet Asmi, “Make it a point to remember every day. Whenever you can find a place and a space to be silent, sit, relax the body, and just start going in.”

Osho in darshan, 1976

Veet Asmi: The group with Teertha (Encounter) turned me upside down, and into myself in a way that I have never been in my whole life, I think. I’ve always been out, and losing myself our there… for the first time I am beginning to go inside.

Very good. Now continue to have that feeling of going in.

Make it a point to remember every day. Whenever you can find a place and a space to be silent, sit, relax the body, and just start going in. Come closer and closer to yourself, and go on forgetting the world… it is falling away. It has moved onto some other star and you are moving in a totally different dimension. The noise of the road will be there, but it will be on the periphery, and the distance between you and it will be tremendous.

Each day you have to catch the feeling again and again. Then it will become stronger and stronger, and any day the breakthrough is possible. The feeling is just hovering around trying to find the way to your interior, to your very core…. And feel it rather than thinking about it.

The posture of your body will be a certain way when you do it… your head will start falling forward. A point may come when your head is touching the earth, you will be kneeling down. So allow it – because that is the posture of the child in the womb. That is the posture of the innermost state of energy, mm? When you are touching your centre again, you will again take the posture of being in a womb. So put a pillow there and help it. You will be again like a small child, and all the learning and all the knowledge and experience will have been left behind. It has been good.
