Chapter 5: Osho Leads Dynamic Meditation 2
Continue deep breathing and let go of the body. Let the body fall down if it wants to fall down. And let it rise again if it wants to rise. And if it wants to dance allow it wholly. Let go of the body absolutely. Let it do whatever it wants to do. Leave it free. Don’t impede it even in the least. Cooperate with the body. If it spins, let it. If it whirls, let it. If it falls down, let it. If it weeps, let it. And if it laughs, let it. Let go. Whatever happens to it, allow it to happen. Continue to breathe deeply and let go of the body.
For these ten minutes let go of the body totally. Breathe deeply, and let go of the body. Let it cry if it wants to cry. Let it scream if it wants to scream. And let it yell if it wants to yell. Allow it in every way. Don’t curb it, don’t restrain it, don’t resist it.
Cooperate with whatever the body does. Whatever happens to it, allow it to happen fully. Let it happen, whatever happens to the body. It will turn into different mudras, gestures. It will whirl and whirl. Many things will happen, when the energy within will awaken. It may burst into loud shouts, screams and crying. Don’t worry at all. Let go, let go of the body.
You have to tire out the body completely. Before it goes to relax, strain and exert it totally. Let go of the body. Cooperate with the body. Breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply, breathe deeply and breathe deeply.
[At this stage the tape recorder receives a knock and stops working, but Osho continues to lead the meditation as usual, and it goes on and on. Meditators continue to breathe deeply and totally let go of their bodies. As it reaches a crescendo Osho asks them to enter into the third stage.
Osho asks the meditators to continue breathing deeply, and to let go of their bodies as in the second stage and add to it the question: “Who am I?” For ten minutes he goes on asking them to bring all their energy into the question: “Who am I? Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?”
And when it reaches its climax, Osho asks them to stop everything, to stop breathing and body movements and to go into total relaxation.
In this last ten minute stage, Osho asks the meditators to give up everything including deep breathing, body catharsis and asking the question, “Who am I?”, and lie down and relax, relax totally. He tells them to relax as if they are dead, as if they are no more. He tells them to listen to the roar of the ocean, the murmur of the winds passing through the pines and the chirping of the birds. And to be in a state of waiting - waiting for the unknown.
For these ten minutes the whole meditation area becomes so quiet and silent that nothing is heard except the lapping of the waves, the murmur of the winds through the pine trees and the song of the birds.
