We live in a world where we rely increasingly on technology, and its uses, as we know, are myriad. This very newsletter, for example, is delivered to you through one of its most popular manifestations – the Internet. We use technology to communicate, to get about, cook our food, measure our health, and even to time our meditations – where would we be without it? Is a world of technology against consciousness, or can it be helpful for us to be more aware?
“The mechanization of all that you are surrounded with has made you aware that you are also nothing but a machine. You have always been that. Buddhas have always been telling you that you exist unconsciously, that you exist like a robot, that you are not yet a man, but illusions persisted. The modern world has taken the last illusion from you, it has revealed the truth to you: that you are nothing but a machine, efficient, inefficient, but a machine.
“It had to be so because only when you live with machines, only then can you become aware of your machine-like existence. You had always lived with trees and animals and people, and it had always given you the false idea that there is freedom. Freedom exists only when you are utterly conscious.”
Osho, The Secret, Talk #16
The Greatest Challenge to Create a Golden Future for Humanity
"If anything is to be done for the future, now is the time. Otherwise the greatest evolution of consciousness in the universe will disappear – and that is not only a loss to the earth, but to the whole of existence. In a million years we have been able to create some possibility of consciousness. But now we don't have time to wait for nature to go on developing in its slow way. It has eternity, but we don’t have.
"If we are going to solve the future and dissolve the problems, then we have to look for the roots in the past. It is our whole past, in all its dimensions, that has brought about this dangerous situation – and nobody talks about that, because no generation before this has ever bothered about the future. Man has always been living the way he wanted, and forced each new generation to live in the same way. This is no longer possible. We have to take a quantum leap – to teach the new generation not to live the same way we have lived. Only then can the future be shifted." Osho

"When you feel anxious, anxiety-ridden what is one to do? What do you ordinarily do when anxiety is there? You try to solve it. You try alternatives, and you get more and more into it. You will create a bigger mess because anxiety cannot be solved through thinking. It cannot be dissolved through thinking because thinking itself is a sort of anxiety.” Osho
Looking at news headlines it’s easy to get dispirited over how we are treating our planet. Our use of modern technology has resulted in dire warnings on climate change, the dead garbage of plastic, pollution, and so on. And isn’t it ironic that for increasing numbers of us this news is brought to our attention by means of this very same technology. So is modern technology really the bad guy?
