Tantra is the Natural Way To God

Tantra is way to God“Tantra is the natural way to God, the normal way to God. The object is to become so completely instinctual, so mindless, that we merge with ultimate nature – that the woman disappears and becomes a door for the ultimate, the man disappears and becomes a door for the ultimate. 

“This is the tantric definition of our sexuality: the return to absolute innocence, absolute oneness. The greatest sexua

l thrill of all is not a search for thrills, but a silent waiting – utterly relaxed, utterly mindless. One is conscious, conscious only of being conscious. One is consciousness. One is contented but there is no content to it. And then there is great beauty, great benediction,

Sit Silently and Wait

Sometimes what happens is that meditation is close by but you are engaged in other things. That still small voice is within you but you are full of noise, engagements, occupations, responsibilities. And meditation comes like a whisper, it doesn’t come like a slogan shouting, it comes very silently. It makes no noise. Not even the footsteps are heard. So if you are engaged, it waits and goes.

Therefore, make it a point, at least an hour every day, just to sit silently and wait for it. Don’t do anything; just sit silently with closed eyes in great waiting, with a waiting heart, with an open heart. You are there, just waiting, so if something happens then you are ready to receive it. If nothing happens don’t feel frustrated. Even sitting for one hour and having nothing happen is good; it’s relaxing. It calms you down, makes you still, makes you more centered and rooted. But more and more it will come and slowly, oh so slowly, there will arise an understanding between you and the meditative state; that you wait at a certain hour in a certain room at a certain time, it will come more and more. It is not something that comes from the outside; it comes from your innermost core. But when the inner conscious knows that the outer conscious is waiting for it, there is more possibility of meeting.

Just sit under a tree. The breeze is blowing and the leaves of the tree are rustling. The wind touches you, it moves around you, it passes. But don’t allow it just to pass you; allow it to move within you and pass through you. Just close your eyes, and as it is passing through the tree and there is a rustling of leaves, feel that you are also like a tree, open, and the wind is blowing through you – not by your side, but right through you.

Dance Meditation

WHEN the movement becomes ecstatic then it is a dance. When the movement is so total there is no ego, then it is a dance.

Dancing came into the world as a technique of meditation. The beginning dancing was not the dance, it was to achieve an ecstasy where the dancer was lost, only the dance remained – no ego, nobody manipulating, the body flowing spontaneously. There is no need to find any other meditation.

Dance itself becomes a meditation if the dancer is lost. The whole point is how to lose oneself. How you do that, or where, is irrelevant. Just lose yourself. A point comes where you are not, and still things go on … as if you are possessed.

Dance is one of the most beautiful things that can happen to a man, so don’t think about meditation separately. Meditation is needed as something separate for people who don’t have any very deep creative energy; no direction for their energy to get so deeply involved that they can be lost. But a dancer, a painter, a sculptor, need not have any other meditation. All that they need is to make their dimension so deeply penetrating that a point of transcendence comes.

There is nothing like dancing . For at least one hour every day, forget all technique. Make it a point to simply dance to God. There is no need to be technical – because He is not an examiner. You will simply dance as a small child … as a prayer. Then dance will have a totally different quality to it. You will feel for the first time that you are taking steps that you have never taken before; that you are moving in dimensions which have never been known to you. Unfamiliar and unknown ground will be traversed. By and by, as you will become more and more in tune with the unknown, all techniques will disappear.

Without techniques, when dance is pure and simple, it is perfect.

Dance as if you are deep in love with the universe, as if you are dancing with your lover.

Let God be your lover.

Jesus says love is God. Osho says God is love and I say love heals. love heals it is food for soul. you need love as your body needs food. love nourishes you. If you don’t get love you become angry and violent. Hindus offer mustered oil to god Shani .the massage of oil or just a hug nourishes your body. give loving hug or Pyar Ki Jhappi or hug to somebody if somebody is angry. or hug a tree. after breaking of a unfinished relation people go in to rage as your body now no more getting love. your body becomes attached to your lovers body in love. But when you break the relation without completing it you feel sadness and rage. you can avoid sadness by being total in love and by completing it. but people don’t know how to be total in love and they blame lovers or love for their wounds. You get wounds in love because you play games when love is there and you don’t surrender and total in love. and you blame love .but in reality love is not problem but the problem is that we don’t know how to love and how to relate. tantra is about learning the art of relating. a tantric never get attached and wounds in love. read another meditation technique from Osho’s book “The Open Door, Breathing in Love” Love is always new. It never becomes old because it is non-accumulative, non-hoarding.

It knows no past; it is always fresh, as fresh as the dewdrops. It lives moment to moment, it is atomic. It has no continuity, it knows no tradition. Each moment it dies and each moment it is born again. It is like breath: you breathe in, you breathe out; again you breathe in and you breathe out. You don’t hoard it inside.

If you hoard the breath you will die because it will become stale, it will become dead. It will lose that vitality, the quality of life. So is the case with love — it is breathing; each moment it renews itself. So whenever one gets stuck in love and stops breathing, life loses all significance. And that’s what is happening to people: the mind is so dominant that it even influences the heart and makes even the heart possessive! The heart knows no possessiveness but the mind contaminates it, poisons it.

So remember that: be in love with existence! And let love be like breathing. Breathe in, breathe out, but let it be love coming in, going out. By and by with each breath you have to create that magic of love. Make it a meditation: when you breathe out, just feel that you are pouring your love into existence; when you breathe in, existence is pouring its love into you. And soon you will see that the quality of your breath is changing, then it starts becoming something totally different to what you have ever known before. That’s why in India we call it ‘prana’, life, not just breathing, it is not just oxygen. Something else is there, the very life itself.

Mature Persons in Love Help Each Other

Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. How can you dominate the person you love? Just think over it. Domination is a sort of hatred, anger, enmity. How can you think of dominating a person you love? You would love to see the person totally free, independent; you will give him more individuality.

That’s why I call it the greatest paradox: they are together so much so that they are almost one, but still in that oneness they are individuals. Their individualities are not effaced – they have become more enhanced. The other has enriched them as far as their freedom is concerned.

Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.
