Inner listening stillness
There are interesting methods designed to create a meditative and quiet approach to 'mind' and a control of one's emotions - A state of 'no mind' or emptiness which allows deep internal processes to occur. Inner listening is a vital aspect to this method of training.
Meditation, visualisations and breathing techniques open up our proprioception (inner senses) and provide us with the tools required to change our habitual states of stress, anxiety, fright, flight and emergency reactions into harmonius responses thus triggering our para-sympathetic nervous system responsible for the pleasure joy and happiness we feel in our everyday life. This practice is vitally important for all humanity enabling us to gain the ability to control our physiological and physocological states through the gentle practice of stillness (wuji) relaxaation and meditation
The effect of lifetime training especially where guided by an experienced teacher can open the inner doors of perception. Listening to subtle body, muscle, pressure, joint and pain sensations, the student is guided constantly within to a point where mind stops and oneness with existence is deeply experienced.
To experience stillness during activity is a heightened state of awareness which trains us to be still even in the most extreme situations.
Those Stupid Games
I am going to live the way I want to live
I am going to live in my own spontaneity and authenticity
I am not here to fulfill anybody's expectations
I am not interested in being called a spiritual person or a saint
I don't need any compliments from anybody
I don't want the crowd to worship me
All those stupid games are finished
Excerpted from The Book Of Wisdom - Osho
"If you want to live a more fulfilled life, first you will want to know your potential, who you really are then meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness.
The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions."
