In Buddha’s time, dynamic methods of meditation were not needed. People were more relaxed and their lives were simpler. Now life moves at a much faster pace, which creates much more stress and tension. Just sitting directly in silent meditation is not so easy.
What Is Meditation
Meditation is an adventure, adventure into the unknown, the greatest adventure the human mind can take. Meditation is just to be, not doing anything – no action, no thought, no emotion. You just are and it is a sheer delight. From where does this delight come when you are not doing anything? It comes from nowhere, or it comes from everywhere. It is uncaused, because existence is made of the stuff called joy.
Meditation is not an Indian method; it is not simply a technique. You cannot learn it. It is a growth: a growth of your total living, out of your total living. Meditation is not something that can be added to you as you are. It cannot be added to you; it can only come to you through a basic transformation, a mutation. It is a flowering, a growth. Growth is always from the total; it is not an addition.Just like love, it cannot be added to you. It grows out of you, out of your totality. You must grow toward meditation. — OSHO
