There is a new craze in town and it has to do with adults behaving like children! Yeah, being childish is in vogue now.

So now is the time you are asking yourself, why not trying it out and why is it actually so popular?!

Before you begin to insinuate that I am high on something or I am little bit confused, please allow me to confirm that adult colouring books are the above-18 years-old version of the colouring book your son, daughter, nephew, niece and neighbours’ children use at school. Yes, I am talking about the book you bought for your little angel that has many patterns waiting to be filled with a myriad of colours.

I know you are yet to recover from the shock of learning that fathers, mothers, college students and working class men and women are warming up to colouring books. I don’t blame you because some of us did not understand the importance of these books when we were in school. You and I know people (like us) who use this strategy to keep children quiet when we want to concentrate on something else. In essence, colouring books are some form of punishment or method of distracting kids to help you work on something different.Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 16.26.53

However, people who understand colouring books and what they represent will always find time to engage in some colouring. Far from being a punishment, this is an activity that will bring a lot of benefits into your life. It is important to underscore what I have just said because the only time most adults touch colouring books is when they have to demonstrate to kids how to use the books. Many, therefore, fear that engaging actively in this pastime will make them objects of ridicule. This is a notion you need to discard if you are to become one of the many people who are enjoying the countless benefits of colouring books.

What Are These Benefits That I Am Talking About?

Perhaps we should begin by asking why we buy colouring books for children and then use some of the insights to derive lessons for adults. The main reasons for children to engage in book colouring activities are to make sure they are busy ( he he ) , no but the real good ones are to impart drawing skills, develop creativity, develop patients, to inculcate perceptual skills and also for entertainment. If you are a parent, you must realise that colouring books are some of the best gifts you can give to your children, some kids really love it. Kids that engage in this activity tend to be very keen on details since colouring books require one to work within confined patterns.

Let Us Now Turn To You…

If you visit Amazon today and search for adult colouring books, you will be amazed at how many products pop up. People are realising the need to go back to the basics if only to find joy in life. Unless for a few people who might have gone through very difficult upbringing, childhood remains the best period of life in terms of play and enjoyment as well as being carefree. Psychologists often urge people to try some of the childhood games they played as a way of reconnecting with their inner beings and finding happiness once again. Colouring books are very crucial in cultivating positive nostalgia in adults and bringing the missing spark after days of repetitive work.

Another important reason you should start using colouring books is stress control and relaxation. The average adult is often a person who has to go out in the morning, work or study, and return home in the evening while tired and stressed. Human beings engage in leisure as a way of unwinding. Just as you engage in indoor games, scrabble or any other pastime, you can take up colouring books and find intellectual, physical and emotional rejuvenation. As you trace your way through patterns and fill images with colours, your mind will demand for more creative energy and this will bring out the best in you.

Colouring books are also crucial in training your brain to concentrate. For some understandable reasons, we tend to glorify multitasking. Women are particularly praised for juggling tasks and reducing the time it takes to accomplish chores. However, psychologists are now warning us that multitasking is not all that positive. It interferes with the normal working of the brain. People who engage in many tasks at the same time often end up not doing any of those tasks as efficiently as expected. On the contrary, colouring books train you to focus. There is no way your mind can be thinking of something else or your hands can be engaged in another activity when you are colouring, if you really want to stay inside the lines. At first, concentrating may appear impossible but with time, it will become easier and you will not notice how fast the time flies!

Examples Of Adults Using Colouring Books?

As early as the 1900s, the famous psychologists, Carl Jung, prescribed this activity to his patients to help them calm their minds. I know you are surprised because you thought this is a relatively new invention meant for children. Even today there are doctors who follow in the footsteps of Dr. Jung. In addition, modern professionals are gathering in large cities such as New York to engage in book colouring as teams. I have already mentioned the influx of colouring books on Amazon and book shops, which implies that respective manufacturers are making a kill.

Turn It Into A Collective Activity!

If you think it is hard to do it, bring together a few friends or family members and challenge one another to colour books. You can begin working with your child, wife, husband or workmates. Set aside time after work or during weekends when you can become a child once again. You will discover that youth is found in engaging in youthful activities. Don’t wait until you are hospitalised to begin using colouring books. Begin today.

How And Why To Use Adult Colouring Books:

1. Book colouring will at first appear childish and time-consuming, but as you finish more challenges, you will begin to like doing it.

2. There are many types of colouring books with different patterns. Find the ones that challenge you and begin to master the art. Maybe at the beginning start with the big patterns and then when you have the hand for it, go in to smaller detailed ones!

3. Colouring books are very reasonable is cost. You can purchase one every month without straining your pocket.

4. Determine to colour one pattern every day so that you don’t consume the time you need to perform other chores and tasks. Best is to set even a timer, as when you start coloring time flies very quick!

5. The more people participating in a colouring challenge; the better for your development and enjoyment of the activity.

6. Buy tip pens, markers, water colours and colour pens with high colour intensity to get creative and free with all colours your soul desires.

7. Put nice music in the background and a cup of your favourite tea, when you sit down to colour and just let yourself go!

8. Pay attention when starting a new pattern which colours you like to use “today”, what mood are you in? What colours does your soul and spirit desire?

9. Colouring is like a meditation or yoga practice, that helps you to connect with your inner self and bring more awareness into your everyday life!

10. Colouring books will help you to develop creativity and Patience.

How To Be A Conscious Leader

In leadership, every guru has his or her own approach and readers and students often end up confused as to who is telling the truth. The fact is that the best leadership approach is the one that works for the practitioner’s and followers’ situations. I know I am sounding as if I am advancing my own theory too. I have right to do so, don’t I?

Allow me to state my opinion in a different way. In the absence of a clear definition of leadership and above the din of a multiplicity of theories, good leadership can only be defined through the leader’s effectiveness in influencing followers towards a noble and mutually beneficial course. However, unless you are a conscious leader, you will gradually develop into an empty shell that eventually runs of content and inspiration.

Who Is A Conscious Leader?

Have you ever met a motivational speaker who is in dire need of the inspiration he or she purports to offer? For example, do you know a renowned financial teacher who became bankrupt after some time? I know one and I am sure you have another one in mind. How possible is it that one can be the recipient of so much wisdom and be the channel for benefiting many, yet fail to gain from the same wealth of knowledge.

Now I can explain what a conscious leader is. This is leader who is in touch with his or her own life and who does not lose sight of himself or herself in the process of leadership. If you are a conscious leader, you lead by example because of the conviction you hold on the issues you share with your followers. A conscious leader is first a disciple of the philosophy he or she subscribes to before becoming a leader.

You must own your life story and implement the change you want to see in others. Only after taking charge and responsibility over your life do you become a conscious leader who can guide others in a particular direction.

What Do You Need To Do To Become A Conscious Leader?

  1. Have Your Own Philosophy Of Life

Throughout life, we are accustomed and socialised to live according to the dictates of those in authority like our parents, school authority and the government. However, as we grow, and especially if we desire to be effective leaders, we must begin to form our own philosophies and visions about life. Such ideologies spring from what we consider our purposes to be living on earth at this particular moment.

  1. Look At Life From A Larger Perspective

In the hustle and bustle of daily life it is possible to lose sight of the larger picture. A conscious leader understands that life is more than the struggle to place food on the table. You need to observe what others take for granted; to see the trends that others don’t, and to make out the connections that are only visible to those who dare to question life itself.

  1. Connect With Your Inner Self

There is no way you are going to be a conscious leader if you don’t know yourself. Understanding what moves and motivates you is essential if you are to help your followers to lead productive lives. Whether you are going to pray or meditate is not the problem. The most important thing is that you have some quiet time with yourself for rejuvenation, inspiration and re- strategising.

  1. Learn To Listen

A conscious leader is one who listens. Listening entails giving undivided attention to the other person while absorbing what they are telling you. It demands for compassion and sympathy to the plight of your followers. If you have learned to listen to your inner voice, then you can listen to others without judging them, thus becoming a conscious leader.

  1. Accept Criticism

A story is told of a despotic tyrant who used to kill ministers who criticised him even after encouraging them to correct him whenever he went wrong. The mark of a conscious leader is one who is open to criticism and correction by those he or she leads and even opponents. No one is perfect and people will point out to you areas in your life that need to be rectified. Accept genuine criticism and make necessary changes as you go along.

  1. Invest In Your Followers

As a conscious leader you should never forget that you are a leader because you have followers. Whether you are a spiritual leader, politician or manager, when you invest in the personal and professional development of your followers, you gain more credibility. Followers will not remain with you for long if they don’t find anything of value or if they feel the cause is benefiting you only.

What Else Do You Need To Know About Conscious Leadership?

  1. Only conscious leadership is real leadership. The best example you can give to your followers is to live the dream you are championing.
  2. Leadership begins with a clear vision. Never forget your vision and what it entails.
  3. Find a strategy of overcoming stress especially in a manner that entails withdrawing from the larger public for some specific periods on a regular basis.
  4. Believe in your followers just as they believe in you. When you lose confidence in them, you lose confidence in your leadership abilities.
  5. Learn to be thankful for your life, position, people around you and the leadership responsibility you are holding.
  6. There is a reason you are a leader and the rest are followers. Whatever makes them love and follow you, strengthen as a conscious leader.
  7. Be happy. Joy is infectious. If you can bring cheer to your soul, it will be reflected in the lives of your followers too.
  8. Communicate as often as possible. The heart of leadership is constant flow of messages between all parties involved.
  9. Motivate your followers. As a conscious leader, you need to understand each of your followers, where possible, and come up with strategies to lift them up when despondency sets in.
  10. Never forget that your happiness and that of your followers are intertwined.

With Love,

How To Experience And Enjoy Tantra Energy

In conventional and popular sexual approaches, sexual energy is released when partners reach orgasm. However, did you know that this philosophy is only true when your partner and you do not understand how to control your bodies and minds?

Of depleted batteries that need recharging

Let’s use and analogy to understand how conventional sex works. When you charge a battery, it gives you the energy you need, which decreases gradually until the battery is drained. This is similar to what happens when you reach orgasm. Your sexual energy is discharged and you feel exhausted.

The opposite is true in Tantric Sex. Here the battery does not lose any energy; it flows unhindered. The partners in Tantric Sex experience increased a vitality that moves around the body – orgasm of the entire body. For partners in normal sex, the energy is in a kind of reservoir that is drained in a short while, during the moment of passion.

Not sporadic moments of passion but prolonged pleasure

Tantric Sex consists of sexual energy in sublime form. This energy remains within the sources, only leaving in form of flows and pulses and going back to its origin. Contrast this with conventional sex where a moment of passion results in the shutdown of the system. Now you know why men doze off after orgasm. In essence, the two sexual partners have no connection.

Rejuvenation, not exhaustion after sex

Tantric sex is different in that you feel rejuvenated and not exhausted during and after sex because of tantric energy. Both of you are conscious of the proceedings and of one another. Throughout the passionate encounter, you are mindful of the happenings and orgasm only enhances, but does not deplete, your energy. Very few people attain this state of continued pleasure.

The price to pay for tantric sex

But do not be cheated that this will happen without any effort. Your partner and you must be trained to focus. Tantra teachers use yoga techniques to train you on this approach to sex. The consequence is a rebirth, whereby you become totally aware of one another and your linkage – emotionally and spiritually. Make sure you choose the right partner or your husband, as the connection is becoming very strong!

In order to preserves and maximise sexual energy in Tantric Sex, you need to practice particular rituals. Prolonged Tantra worship assists you in generating sexual energy, which is them made to flow freely and rejuvenate the minds and bodies of your partner and you. For this to happen, your minds and bodies must be prepared adequately for the process.

Age and past experience do not matter

When your bodies and minds are not trained in Tantra Sex, you reach gratification rapidly. However, if you are prepared through tantric medication and yoga, you will last for a longer time, with sexual gratification taking longer to come. To learn more about Tantric Sex, identify a tantra master and start your journey towards fulfilling sex. Finally, in tantric sex, your age or past sexual experience cannot hinder you from enjoying this unforgettable sex.

Why You Should Burn Incense At Home

I think I need to admit, that I am a bit obsessed with burning incenses at home! I even suspect the whole building smells of it when I burn them in my apartment and the neighbours must think there is a Krishna Temple somewhere inside the house! LOL! But to burn incense, you don’t have to be religious, a Krishna believer or a Buddhist. Just read the real and good benefits that you can get from burning them, from different perspectives…

What is Incense?

Incense is a fragrant biotic substance that emits aromatic smoke as it burns. Substances may also be mixed with essential oils, spices, tree bark and flowers to create certain fragrances and aromas. Different cultures have varied ways of preparing incense and technology has created even more methods!

Who burns Incense?

Ancient Egyptians would burn incense to worship their Gods and for being near them and to their Gods too. Today Christian churches burn them for religious ceremonies and liturgy. In Asia many people burn them not only at the temples but also at their homes to honour their Gods, for rituals and to purify and protection from any bad spirits.

Want to concentrate more?

A famous Chinese healer teaches that – “Monks recognised this benefit of incense long ago and use it during their meditation to clear the air as well as their thoughts.” Craftsmen practice the same to ensure they don’t lose focus when creating artefacts, jewellery and ornaments.

I love meditating when burning the incense at home in front of my Buddha. It connects me into a different place, the atmosphere changes and my thoughts become quiet, I travel into a different time and my mind disappears into my sanctuary!

Need a creativity injection?

If you are a writer, musician or any other creative artist you can spike your imagination and creativity by burning incense! The exciting aroma of incense can work like gorgeous scenery, an inspiring song or a quiet walk in the woods – or even better – in generating ideas and creativity to work on them.

Feeling low on morale?

We all feel it at times and burning incense can also change all of this. Incense is known to have air-purifying qualities. It destroys or wards off bacteria, fungi and insects. According to some experts, “incense increases positive energy and drives away negative energy.”

Is your confidence tank empty?

Confidence is very crucial for any activity that you undertake and incense can greatly boost your self-assurance. If your burn incense, it can help you to be more confident and successful!

Need to boost your libido?

If you are looking for an aphrodisiac, look no further! Your sexual appetite is bound to increase, even as your confidence grows exceptionally with every scent of incense you imbibe. An incense guru holds that “If a couple uses incense together, the smells will kick in the pheromone effect and they most likely will have a hard time keeping their hands off each other.” Wow, not bad for an incense…

Other benefits…

You can avert bacterial infections by disinfecting the air with Myrrh and other forms of incense. If your nose is blocked or you have a throbbing head, burning and imbibing incense will bring you fast relief. You also can use incense to fight depression and anxiety and overcome insomnia. Simply burn them at homes to enjoy its pleasant aroma!

Caution!

Despite all this great benefits, remember it is really very, very important to use only organic / natural incense! It is more safer for your health, respiratory system and is non-addictive, the type that has some synthetic substances or is burned using charcoal can harm you! I would recommend Japanese incense, they are generally more refined then others and are the best from my experience. Nippon Kodo Since 1575.

Tibetan incenses are very natural and light. In India the incense tends to be rougher and very strong in aroma. Additionally, incense can have healing effects, but if your condition worsens, consult a doctor. Personally and if I am honest, sometimes I feel the burning smoke aromas are a bit to strong for me even if I do like the fragrance. If you burn it in small rooms, I would recommend opening the windows and letting some fresh air in.

So don’t overuse it to much, you don’t have to burn the incense everyday and every hour! You can burn them few times or even once a week. So when I feel more sensitive to the smells, I just let them burn (in a safe place) when I leave the house, so when I come back I have a nice aroma, clean energy and good spirit at home!

With Love,

Your Grace Guru

Just Get Happy!

Human beings crave good things. No one wishes himself or herself bad luck. We all wake up with the desire to have a good day and good fortune. Unfortunately, it does not always happen the way we want it. We have to contend with negative events and people.

On the other hand, happiness is not an option if you want to live a fulfilling life. From the onset, it is important to understand that even science attests to the healing and rejuvenating qualities of happiness. In essence, you simply have to find ways of being happy despite the negative circumstances that may be surrounding you.

Further, you need to realise that happiness will not just happen to you. You must create happiness consciously and deliberately. You must pursue happiness the same way you endeavour to place food on the table. Remember, happiness is an attitude and not a fixed state. Even if you are given all the material things in this world, you will still need to make the decision to be happy.

Let us analyse some strategies through which you can begin to be happy or increase your level of happiness in spite of all the reasons that life gives you to be unhappy…

  1. Fake It!

Wow! What a way to start? You ask. And I mean it. Pretend that you are happy. Smile when circumstances are not favourable to you. Instead of inviting pity from others, act like you are happy. It is a habit you have to calculate over time until you finally master it. Didn’t you here that practice makes perfect? This maxim is also applicable to making yourself adopt a happy disposition. When you give your mind the impression that all is well, you will infect your heart with the same warmth and every part of you will begin to feel happy. And of course remember like attracts like !

  1. Watch Who You Let Close To You

Some of the people you call family and friends are the ones who bring unhappiness into your life. Please don’t think that I hate these people because I don’t even know them. You know that you can’t stand some of them. The moment that colleague comes near you, your moods plunge and you feel like a blanket of sadness has come over you. Simply put, you cannot become happy in their presence. Please do yourself a favour and minimise contact with such people. Take a walk or vacation when necessary. Don’t let people surround you with negative energy. Remember that even if they are family members, you have only one life to live and nobody should steal your happiness.

  1. Surround Yourself With People Who Love You

This may sound like another way of saying what I said in the previous point, but there is more to it. Do you have these people whom you feel comfortable around and who lift your spirits at all times? Some of them are family members or former schoolmates who know you more than anybody else. I am referring to that guy who reminds you of a silly game you played when you were young. I have in mind the people who remain with you whether the sun appears to have dropped a few meters towards you or it is raining hail. These people celebrate you and comfort you. Your happiness is closely linked with them. When they are not around you feel like your heart is empty. Seek for the company of such folks all the time and you will always be happy.

  1. Speak Positively To Yourself

There is one person who will always be with you and whose company you should seek and cultivate. Look at the mirror and that person will look back at you and smile. Learn to appreciate yourself. Nobody knows what you are capable of doing more than yourself. When despair sets, in recall those moments when you went through trouble and came out strong. Speak to yourself and affirm that you are going to have a good day. Tell yourself that no problem is beyond you. Practice speaking audibly to yourself and mention your name as you speak. Create affirmative statements that you can speak to encourage yourself, and happiness will be yours.

  1. Be Grateful

There is some magical power in expressing gratitude either to others or simply acknowledging the many positive things in your life. Think about it this way: how many of the people you knew when you were young are alive today? How would you like to exchange places with a homeless refugee in a war-torn country like Syria? How about spending your nights in the cold because you are homeless? Would you like to take the place of the terminally ill person abandoned by family and friends in a hospice and who longs to die more than to live? Think about that sibling or parent who is always there for you and the little angel that smiles and waves at you when you leave your house to go to work. I can assure you that thinking about these things before you go to sleep, when you wake up and when unfortunate events happen to you, will lift your spirit almost immediately.

  1. Be Optimistic

Negative thoughts and despondency are the reason many people live unhappily. Perhaps you know people who always see the negative side of life. I know folks who are so much negative minded that even when you give them a present they want to know whether you have a hidden motive. It is possible that your pessimism is as a result of very many negative happenings in your life, but that does not give you the reason to become a prophet of doom. Sometimes we tend to exaggerate negative situations when there is actually a positive angle to an issue. It is true that life has many bad happenings but there is a lot more that is positive that you need to celebrate today. Instead of agonising at that negative issue that you cannot change, why not begin another project that can harness your strengths and capabilities?

More Ideas!

  • Find a purpose in life and endeavour to always work in the occupation or profession which you believe you were called or created to do.
  • Identify negative habits that contribute to your unhappiness and replace them with habits that make you feel valuable and loved by your friends and family.
  • Collect nuggets of wisdom that you can feed on every morning and evening, most of which can be found in religious and motivational books.
  • Begin a project or activity that brings happiness to others, like visiting people in need and donating towards their upkeep.
  • Join clubs or societies than engage in activities that you find uplifting and enjoyable to do, like communal work.
  • Increase your happiness by reading books written by your favourite authors and whose ideologies you share.
  • If you have some favourite type of music, set everything aside and treat yourself to your favourite musical sounds.
  • Watch a movie or comedy that gladdens your heart and appeals to your humour because as your laugh about the foolishness of the actors you will be eradicating your won unhappiness.
  • Engage in some childish behaviour that you used to do when you were young. For example, play some games with children and enjoy reliving childhood memories.
  • Live in the present; perform those activities that make you happy today instead of waiting for tomorrow which you are not even sure you will live to see.

Spiritual Travel To Amazing Osho Meditation Resort!

One of these days you may come across a donkey hauling luggage, take a good look at it, because that could be mirroring an image of you. Life is an ironic struggle where we often rush to meet deadlines and targets while forgetting to ‘feed the cow that produces the milk’. You work your ass off in the quest for a king’s life only to die a pauper that never enjoyed life!

Losing contact with yourself is the worst mistake you can make in life. Often we search for the solutions to loneliness and lethargy in other places while the real source of these complications is in our detached soul.

What you need is a trip into your inner self and the best way to do this is to take a spiritual journey to the Osho Meditation Resort…

Appreciating Osho Meditation Resort

I know you are likely to dismiss this as yet another boring article by a yoga enthusiast who has nothing more to do but stare into emptiness, but before you do so let me tell you about the Osho Meditation Resort.

First, it is in India. I can see weird thoughts crisscrossing your mind already – tropical sun, saris, robes, rice, onions, spices, monkeys, rickshaws, traffic, monks, vegetarians, imposing temples and so on. I would be lying if I said you will not come across these real and imagined images of India.

However a 15 minute flight from Mumbai to Koregaon Park in Pune will do you good! Yes, rickshaws are not the only means of transport in India – there are airplanes too! The beauty that awaits you will erase all your lopsided impressions about India and its people; more importantly, this camp effortlessly blends nature and modernity.

Walking in marble

Have you ever walked on marble in the midst of elegant buildings and green vegetation, along a swimming pool only fit for Olympic champions? That is the Osho Meditation Resort for you. And the surprise does not end there. This is virtually an international meeting point if the meditators from over 100 countries are to be considered. This resort gives you the opportunity to not only interact with global yoga enthusiasts but also relax, swim, rest, meditate or simply be yourself.

Not for nut-heads and hermits

I often meet people who think that yoga is a dark art; a mystical oriental ritual only fit for nut-heads and hermits who have lost touch with humanity! This resort will help you understand and practice basic Osho Active Meditations, which are designed for the modern person who has to contend with a lot of stress and psychological strain.

Whether you are the neophyte trying to learn how to salute the sun or you are the experienced meditation expert that needs no prompt to fall into a trance, Osho Meditation Resort is designed for you. There are numerous methods of meditation at this centre including traditional approaches such as Vipassana and more modern ones like Osho Kundalini and dance meditation.

A Multiversity

The Osho Multiversity is also open for eager learners. Please don’t develop stomachache because of your fear of exams – there are none here! At least the founders of the centre knew you would visit one day and did not want to scare you away!

The Osho Meditation Centre also has workshops that you can participate in to enable you develop your mental and spiritual capabilities. At the end of each day, a spectacular evening of celebration, dance and even silence awaits you.

Screen shot 2015-06-25 at 18.08.39

Daily and in-house programs

By the way, you do have the choice of going to the centre daily for meditation or pitching tent at the resort to soak up all the meditation knowledge and benefits available, like a human sponge!

What happens when you visit Osho?

Your wonderful experience at the Osho Meditation Resort begins at the Welcome Center right at the entrance where you register. This helps shield off busy-bodies and I am guessing you are not one. Please don’t visit the Welcome Centre unless it is between 9.00 am to 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm daily. It amazes me as to where staff members get their infectious smiles and the resourceful answers they give. Registration takes place up to 12.30 pm for the morning session while afternoon registration activity takes place up to 3.30 pm.

What do you need for registration?

The Osho Meditation Resort is a law abiding entity and requires interested visitors to present valid identification papers. Don’t come with your boutique, supermarket or airline receipts please. Keep them as souvenirs and only present your ID or passport.

Mandatory HIV /Aids Test

This may be scary depending on your sexual history and escapades, but prepare for a HIV test before being admitted into the Osho Meditation Resort. You don’t have to read for the test – it is just 15 minutes of waiting and you know your fate. The resort will reward you with a Meditation Resort pass once you are deemed fine.

Daily Stickers for entrance

After registration, all you will need to exist within the resort are daily stickers which you can purchase when entering. You may also opt for seasonal tickets if you become a fan – or are you a meditation and yoga fanatic?

How about buying items in the park?

Please leave your cash and notes at home – nobody is interested in your poverty or wealth at the Osho Meditation Resort! Grab some vouchers (of course you have to pay for these) at the Welcome Centre as they are the legal tender there.

The Welcome Morning

Avoid the temptation to oversleep and be at the centre by 9.00 am to participate in the Welcome Morning, which introduces you to the campus, the programs of the Osho Multiversity and Osho Meditations. In the unfortunate event that you arrive at 9.01 am, don’t despair because you will listen to a brief introduction audio in your language of choice. But do not be cheated because you still have to arrive at 8.59 am the following day for the Welcome Morning.

What about residents?

You can register and live in the camp. There is a Living in Program for those on a long pilgrimage. Getting to know fellow meditators is an extra incentive for zero grazing yourself. This is a good option if you are allergic to traffic and rickshaws that characterise the life of a day scholar.Screen shot 2015-06-25 at 18.12.16

Can you stay off campus?

You can stay at any of the affordable and comfortable hotels in the vicinity of Osho Meditation Resort. But as one of my friends found out, you may arrive at the resort after some important activities have taken place.

How much will it cost you?

A meditation pass is the guarantee that you can remain in the resort between 5.30 am and late night and also access the OSHO Teerth Garden, the OSHO Auditorium and the evening programs.

Those with entry stickers are allowed into meditation programs for the entire day. They also attend the Buddha Grove open-air classes.

Stickers are available either for 1-10 days’ period or for an entire month. 1-4 days; entry stickers will cost you 1560 INR every day if you are not a resident of India, while citizens and residents have to pay 760 INR for the same package. If you opt for tickets to allow you access for 5 to 6 days, you will get a 13% discount if you are a foreigner, which means you will pay 1,326 INR. For residents and nationals, this package will cost 646 INR.

I almost forgot to tell you that the cost of food, drinks, accommodation and courses and workshops offered by the Osho Multiversity are on the Osho website!

Communicating with the outside world while at the resort?

You can visit the cybercafé within the Osho Meditation Resort and pay a little fee for Wi-Fi internet. You can also make calls but only in designated areas. Nobody wants to be disturbed by long noisy and hysterical calls when they are meditating. And forget about selfies as all sorts of photo taking activities are prohibited.

Who is allowed to visit?

Everyone is welcome! The resort receives people from more than a hundred nations on the planet. Whether you are a businessman, policeman or an artisan, you will find relaxation and fun at the Osho Meditation Centre – And age does not matter, too. Both young and old will realise that their needs are well taken care of at the centre. Don’t be surprised if you find you grandfather walking around the resort in a maroon robe!

Majority of those who visit this centre are university graduates. So if you thought meditation was for lowly-educated and superstitious oriental people think twice. But education is not a requirement for meditation! Don’t be cheated into thinking that you are the odd one out because you see people at the centre greeting each other, half of the people whom you will meet here are first-time visitors just like you.

Why should I go?

Countless people find time to visit this resort for the sake of enjoyment. If you feel you need time to shed off some of your pent-up emotions, visit the centre and relax both in mind and spirit. There are those who come to the park for the purpose of learning at the Osho Multiversity. There is no better place to understand meditation than this resort. You may also want to pop in if you have come to India on a different mission. You will never regret walking through the doors of this resort! The sheer numbers you will find here will convince you that you need to have visited sooner.

What kind of a product is envisioned?

This may sound like rocket science for the uninitiated, but the resort has a vision for the human race in this age. The intention is to come up with a human beings who are well-grounded while simultaneously reaching for greater heights. The Osho product is a jovial person, who interacts readily with others, but also retreats to meditate in silence. It does not matter what values you believe in, your space is preserved in this special garden.

Do you need to be a member?

This is a ridiculous lie propagated from those who have no understanding of what it means to visit this resort!! The centre does not belong to an exclusive club. There are no special people who must be admitted and others rejected. All you need is to be prepared to come to grips with you inner self and to develop a deeper and beneficial understanding of who you really are.

You may have heard that people who come to the resort are initiated into “sannyas”, which is another misconception. It is upon the individual to decide whether to enrol or not. Personally, I find no problem with Smith assuming the name William if only to come to grips with his inner self and begin a new fulfilling life.

When you decide to engage in “sannyas” Osho tells you that you have committed yourself to his guidance and he will not interfere with your life. Just dedicate yourself to transformation – while acting responsibly. Only through courage will you achieve your meditation goals.

Are visitors required to join movements or cults?

By its very nature, meditation is not a crowd activity. Osho Meditation Resort encourages you to join your inner self in order to grow into a more conscious and happier person. You cannot meditate effectively unless you appreciate and practice some form of solitary living.

Osho methods are transformative – requiring a personal paradigm shift. Osho advocates for are meant to destroy the misconceptions you have about yourself, thus leaving your soul utterly naked and ready for a new experience. He opines that you can only understand the truth by being alone and that truth is you. He believes that no great spiritual teacher can teach you the truth because the truth is found in you – by engaging in meditation. Meditation is not practiced in market places, football stadiums or politically rallies!

However, realising this dream is not like drinking water or eating a favourite meal – it requires courage. At Osho Meditation Resort you have all the tools you need and the concomitant environment to meditate. Interestingly, there are many other people at the centre pursuing the same goal, and being alone with them (if you can comprehend what this means), is not only easy but also enjoyable.

Is there a dress code?

Here is the interesting part, especially for men who cannot wear women’s clothing! At this renowned meditation centre, visitors wear lose-fitting plain maroon robes (I can hear you breathe a sigh of relief that it is not a skirt or dress). This is mandatory for everyone within the resort and especially during meditation. You will wear this robe between 9 am and 4 pm, while performing daytime tasks. It is also the attire that you will wear when performing OSHO Kundalini Meditations and OSHO Dynamic.

Do you want to know why people wear maroon robes at the resort?

  1. Maroon robes act as uniform attire and make people feel part of the resort and of one another.
  2. Unlike wearing different clothes, uniformity enables you to focus on your inner self instead of the outside.
  3. There is mutual meditative energy that emanates from collective wearing of the colour maroon.
  4. If you are a woman (and this also applies to some men) you will not need to worry about matching the colour of your clothes in the morning, hence giving you more time to focus on the more important task of meditation.
  5. Pune is in the tropics and temperature can hit the extreme north and south.
  6. This attire will free your body from the bondage of belts and other constricting body accessory that makes breathing and meditation problematic.
  7. If you are not from India, you can at least boast to your folks back at home that you survived for some time in a robe!

What others are saying about Osho and the Osho Meditation Resort

You are not the first person to discover Osho Meditation Resort! No medal awaits you for that. At least not for now! Osho’s teachings and methodologies have over the years been commended by religious leaders, actors, politicians, musicians and writers among others. These include Tom Cruise, Madonna, The Dalai Lama, Tom Robbins and Dr. Manmohan Singh to name a few. I am not sure whether you can become a clone of Madonna or Tom Cruise at your age, but I am sure meditation and this experience at the resort can give you a new lease of life at any age.

Time to visit

Don’t read history any more – make history now! There are few pilgrimages that can transform you the way a visit to the Osho Meditation Resort can. Make a commitment today and visit the Osho Meditation Resort!

Is Your Soul A Mature One?

The spiritual world is full of surprises particularly in relation to how our souls measure up to expectations. I must admit that it took me time to understand that there can be mature and immature souls. I am sure you have heard the expression of an “Old Soul” before? So like me at the beginning, you may also be wondering how an unseen entity, like a soul, can be considered mature or immature. However, it takes a critical personal examination to understand exactly what it means to be regarded as an old soul.

The spiritual journey is a long and complex one. It involves growing from one level to another during all your lifetime and most of the time it is replete with challenges. Along the way you must pose important questions to assess your progress and remain committed to your goals. Chief among the crucial questions you must ask yourself, what is it you really expect from life. The importance of this question cannot be overstated.

The moment you decide to ask yourself what your expectations in life are, the answer you receive will indicate how mature your soul is.

Before we go deeper into the issue of soul maturity, we need to emphasize that you must be honest in your answers. The problem with us as human being is that we have become so vain that we can lie to ourselves! We are used to lying all the time so much so that lying has become our second nature. However, the worst form of lying is to deceive yourself. This means that while you know your weaknesses, strengths and potential, you deny these facts and decide to live like other people. You must have heard that a lie can be told so many times that it begins to sound like a fact.

Who am I philosophical question

After all nobody is there to check whether you are right or not. Moreover, is not a matter for discussion. You also must bear in mind that you don’t have to publicise your answers. Similarly, you have always told people not to judge you because they have never lived your experience. Now you have the opportunity to be your own judge.

Now that we have settled the question of honesty, let us delve into the answers that you give when you ask yourself about your expectations in life as you seek to know whether your soul is mature. Your response to this important question has a direct correlation with the maturity of your soul. Human expectations are significant because they reveal what is in a person’s heart and why they live the way they do. I like to deviate by saying that if you want to know the essence of a person, ask them their expectations in life. One can only expect to achieve that which is tandem with their deeply-held beliefs.

Let us now compare and contrasts the maturity and immaturity of souls using the concept of human expectations. If you are the kind of person that has innumerable desires, aspirations and goals that you are keen to achieve, you are an immature soul. Wow! That definition categorises you as an immature soul already – right? By the way, it does not matter whether these desires are of a lower order, like power and money, or more complex ones like being more devoted to your spiritual life. In essence, as an immature soul, you are always striving to achieve what can be seen and felt. You obsess about becoming richer and famous. Success becomes your mantra.

In this regard, mature souls operate within timelines. The future holds a lot of significance for them. I am sure you cannot argue about this because you are always saying that you will achieve this or that in some days, weeks, months or years to come. Immature souls have to achieve certain material objectives at certain times and this is the driving force behind their thoughts and actions. They always feel that they are pressed for time since time is a limited resource. People with immature souls dedicate a lot of time to the achievement of material goals at the expense of spiritual ones.

However, do not imagine that an immature soul does not have spiritual objectives – it does, in some cases. The only difference is that those spiritual goals are supposed to be achieved today or in the present dispensation. The present is only a launching ground for achieving the pleasures of tomorrow. You may have met people whose only motive for helping others is because this will result in a better to qualify for a blissful afterlife. You probably know someone who lives well today simply because they want to escape future apocalyptic judgment. Their desires may seem to have a spiritual angle, but in real sense, if the possibility of damnation or future good was removed withdrawn, these people would be the worst crooks you have ever met.

Let us now turn our attention to mature souls. From the onset, you need to understand that a mature soul has ambitions and desires, but that does not becloud the need to embrace nobler ideals. This soul is closely linked to forms and shapes. If you have such a soul, you don’t just think about the present; you have the cosmic good at heart. You are not bound by what is seen but your eye is fixed on what the immature soul cannot see. You are conscious of your role as a catalyst for good in the world and not just a conduit for material gratification.

Retro key and opened book

Mature souls take cognisance of the fact that material achievement and satiation of physical needs is not the only objective in life. In fact, a mature soul feels empty and unhappy if its only success is linked with material needs. When you have an immature soul, you feel happiest when you are surrounded by wealth and success. To a mature soul, physical success does not even come close to defining the essence of life. Life has more meaning than parading your achievements before people. Soul maturity means transcending current definitions of prosperity and embracing a cosmic view of the interrelations between different elements that make up the universe. Being happy temporarily is the domain of the immature soul.

It is essential to realise that the old soul does not become ripe directly. No. A mature soul begins as an immature one. It experiences multiplicities of desires just like the immature one. The mature soul can attest, through experience, of the variability of life. It understands that the world has forms and shapes that are always in flux. Nothing in the material world lasts for long. The mature soul knows the futility of life and the apparent lack of sustainability. The immature soul also knows these things. However, the mature soul refuses to remain within the bounds of materialism and variability.

By leaving behind its finite desires and ambitions, the mature soul is willing to become poor. By poverty, I mean even material lack in order to achieve higher human good. In the spiritual world, sacrifice is very significant. The idea of denying oneself material possession to give cheer to another person is at the centre of every religion. Similarly, leaving behind one’s physical belongings to pursue spiritual good is a key dogma in many spiritual teachings. On the other hand, an immature souls is always seeking for more wealth, even when in human eyes, it has attained what it needs to live well. Even when an immature soul appears to embrace spirituality, the fact is that material desires are just suppressed and will soon arise. Religion and spirituality, as we observed before, are just conduits to material wealth.

The difference between maturity and immaturity of souls is found in the way the two express their egos. The goal of an immature soul is to satisfy the ego. Contrastively, the mature soul seeks to find the authentic center of life and to attain eternal happiness according to universal forms and shapes. The mature soul subjugates its desires and ceases to identify itself using the ego. It considers itself a formless Consciousness. The immature soul may want to attain higher levels of existence but only for personal gratification.

To change your soul form being immature to mature, learn to look at life from the real centre in a spiritual way. Your ideals must transcend the aspects of the conscious mind. You must live with people in a manner that does not accentuate the ego above everything else. Gradually, you will learn how to invite divine presence into your life even as you worry less about material sacrifices that you need to make.

Now you can tell whether your soul is mature or not. If you are immature (and many of us operate in this realm), remember it will take time to grow olds. Most importantly, learn to subjugate your ego to spiritual ideals if you want your soul to mature.

With love,

Tips For Practicing Mindfulness!

n my previous article, I have described, ” What is Mindfulness? “ (http://graceguru.net/2015/10/what-is-mindfulness/) and how good and bifacial it is for us to be mindfully aware of our lives and ourselves. So if you have not read it yet, I would recommend reading it first and then continuing with the tips of how to practice Mindfulness, if you have 10 more minutes?

The field of mindfulness has become very popular not only among psychologists and spiritual people, but also other professionals and the general public. There is a keen interest from the broad nation after people realised the amazing benefits of this activity. It is as if people have suddenly recognised the importance of mindfulness, yet this is a practice that has been ongoing for ages!

Having said that, we need to realise that practicing mindfulness is not that easy. Your brain is more likely to embrace mindlessness than mindfulness. Although the former is harmful in the long run, it appears to be more attractive perhaps because it consists of endless reveries, which lie to you that you are making progress when you are going nowhere. Mindlessness also expends very little mental and physical effort thus making it a favorite of many of us.

The reason I am emphasising on these issues at the onset is because any tips for practicing mindfulness must begin with the realisation that this is not a walk in the park. After being accustomed to daydreaming and drifting thoughts for a long time, it is not easy to suddenly embrace mindfulness and excel in it. The tips we are about to discuss are all informed by the fact that you need to be consciously aware of what you are doing if you are to tame your thoughts.

“When I practice mindfulness, I am able to connected to the present moment and let go of all the stress and worries”           

  1. Create Time For Practicing Mindfulness!

I will emphasise severely that this is a conscious activity that requires some effort. At the beginning when you are just about to start practicing, you need to treat it the way you do gym workouts, prayer or other routines in your life. Consider setting aside some minutes in your daily schedule during which you can concentrate on the present. You can do this at your workplace, your home or outdoors. However, ensure you are in an environment that is conducive for concentration. Once you create a schedule, stick to it. Make it a ritual to always engage in mindfulness. I suggest you do it daily!

  1. Do Not Over Do It Or Strain!

So when you are have tried your everyday schedule at the beginning, you will need to encourage yourself to like mindfulness a bit more J. Consequently, do not make the exercise tedious and difficult for you. Now, try to remember mindfulness during the day and start with a few minutes more now and then, as you appreciate the importance of mindfulness. With time, you may find yourself concentrating for hours. The most important thing, though, is that you learn to love and appreciate the exercise to the point that it becomes effortless. Making it hard will discourage you in the long run and you will drift back to undesirable mindlessness.

  1. Practice Mindfulness Outside Your Normal Schedule!

We began by saying that you set aside time for practicing mindfulness. That is good but since your aim is to eventually become a habitual and involuntary practitioner of mindfulness, consider engaging in the activity even when it is not within the hours you have set aside. Just take time to observe and appreciate your surrounding when you are waiting to see a doctor or a friend. As you take a train journey through the countryside, don’t let your mind wonder aimlessly. Instead, grasp the moment and appreciate nature, the people around you and the journey itself.

“When you practice mindfulness, it becomes every time easier and natural over time.”

  1. Forget About Perfection!

When you begin to worry about perfection instead of doing what you can, you are engaging in mindlessness. Don’t waste your time thinking about how poor you are in your attempts to become mindless. It is not an event but a process and processes take time to learn and master. Worrying about imperfections will only lead to despair and you may even contemplate quitting the activity. Concentrate on attaining your goals for the day and if you don’t make it, endeavor to do so tomorrow. Don’t judge yourself harshly but rather appreciate the gains you make every day.

  1. Watch Your Thoughts!

Mindfulness and mindlessness are all activities that take place in your brain. Since we are more likely to be mindless, it is important to begin by catching yourself in the act as it were. Learn to detect when your mind is on autopilot and redirect it to the present. You know yourself better than anybody else. You know when the reveries and day-dreaming begin. Only you can tell when your past comes back to haunt your present. Those are the moments when you should redirect your thoughts from mindlessness to mindfulness.

  1. Engage In Meditation!

If you are not aware, mindfulness is not mediation but the latter is part of the former. In case you are finding it difficult to engage in mindfulness, meditation can be a good starting point. Meditation is a renowned and proven strategy for training the mind to relax and concentrate on certain issues. When you engage in meditation, you accelerate your process of becoming mindful. The two work in tandem when it comes to conditioning the mind and learning to control what you think and how you react to your experiences in life.

“Meditation is a renowned and proven strategy for training the mind to relax and concentrate on certain issues.”

  1. Experiment!

When all is said and done, you are the best judge on exactly how well you are progressing towards mindfulness. Whatever you realise is working for you, concentrate on that as long as it will lead you to the ultimate goal of becoming mindful. If prayer makes you mindful, feel free to practice it. No amount of tips and other people’s experiences can replace your own efforts. Remember your aim is to overcome chronic mindlessness and train your mind to appreciate the present without being judgmental.

 

Now that you know, begin where you are with what you have. When the benefits of mindfulness begin to manifest in your life, you will be glad you made the effort.

Few books to recommend if you really like to understand the moment of now and be mindful:

    

With Love,

Do You Have A Mentality That Attracts Wealth?

The world of wealth creation has undergone many changes in recent days to the extent that people now know that there is a science behind this endeavour. In essence, to become wealthy you need more than investment and prudent management of your savings. Attracting wealth is now understood to be a matter of mentality. While this does not mean that you discard what you already know about wealth creation, it places upon you the obligation to seek for more information on how you can attract wealth.

 It All Begins With Beliefs

Over the years, we have known that what we believe influences how we live. You are the sum of your beliefs and pertinent action. But let us concentrate on the beliefs part because it determines how we behave and whether we can attract wealth or not. When you hold some beliefs very closely to your heart you tend to act to actualise your convictions.

Ideology, dogma, philosophy or whatever you call it, can be a power for good or evil in your life. We have witnessed what deranged religious extremists are doing in Iraq and Syria owing to mistaken interpretation of religious beliefs. Conversely, many schools, hospitals, orphanages, hospices and other forms of charity are there to help the disadvantaged thanks to people who subscribe to one form of religion or the other. In essence, faith and belief can become powers for good.

Let us now return to the issue of money. Did you know what you believe about money may give or deny you this important measure of wealth? I know you may not have thought seriously about this but some of the belief you hold about money are the reason you have stagnated monetarily. I also need to point out that you many not even be aware of these beliefs. You may have held them for so long that you have come to assume they are true even when they are mere negative perceptions.

For you to have the mentality that attracts wealth, you must first understand and assess what you believe. You cannot have mistaken and negative beliefs about money and expect to attract it to you. It is hard for you to go around taking ill of money and expect it will naturally come to you. Unfortunately, many of us have never taken time to scrutinise what they believe about money and the repercussions of such perceptions.

Remember the more you believe in something the more you are likely to defend it and live according to its dictates. Consequently, those who have adopted the right mentality will continue to attract more wealth, while those who choose to have negative beliefs about money will end up lacking it most of the time.

Money Beliefs To Avoid

As I said before, you are likely not to even know that what you believe is causing you some disadvantage. That is why some of the mistaken beliefs I will cite will catch some readers off guard.

  1. Have you ever heard someone say that they will never become rich? You may even be one of those who say so. Perhaps you said it in jest as you interacted with other people. But words have power behind them. As you repeat these words or similar statements they become ingrained in your mind and become beliefs. Eventually such beliefs become strong cords that bind you to lack, scarcity and poverty.
  1. You may also have come across people who say that there is scarcity in the world and that resources are never enough. This is another pitfall that you may have fallen into without even realising it. Some of these beliefs are inherited from our parents. We were taught to share and to know that we can never have enough of what we want. Somehow, we came to project that into our monetary lives and it became a self-fulfilling prophesy.
  1. Once you believe this crap, not even time will be adequate for you. You will always be rushing and never accomplishing what you planned to. You see, your mind must find resources inadequate so that you don’t think you are insane. You have to see and experience what you have always believed to be true.

  1. Did someone ever tell you that money does not grow on trees? And you believed what they told you – essentially that money is not as abundant as leaves and you would rather make do with what you have. By the way, it is true that money does not grow on trees. But that is where the problem lies. Trees are everywhere; if you cannot see trees, you are in a desert. This is the definition of poverty and lack. You will come across money on rare occasions because it will not be available on the few trees in your world.
  1. Another fallacy about money is a derived from the good book. You must have heard people saying money is the root of all evil. What naysayers don’t tell you is that the root of all evil is the love of money, not money itself. What this kind of belief does to you is to make you hate money. You view it as the reason you and the rest of humanity are in constant pain. How then will money become your friend if you hate it?

Affirmations To Counter Negative Beliefs On Wealth

The best way to counter self-limiting beliefs, that tie you strongly to poverty, is to create positive affirmations that you can recite and replace with misconceptions.

  1. If you have always believed you will never become rich, begin to create affirmations that you are going to overcome your situation. Craft your statement to remind you that you are living abundantly even now. This will create the right atmosphere for you to attract wealth into your life.
  1. Instead of believing and saying that you don’t have enough money, create an affirmation to indicate that you are grateful for what you have. Let it sink into your mind that you appreciate whatever you have accumulated up to now. Gratitude is a powerful strategy for attracting wealth, good fortune and wellbeing.

  1. If you have been saying that you have no time to do everything that you have to, it is time to create an affirmation that will replace this negative belief. I know you believe you have a lot on your hands every day to the extent that you have to multitask. However, you need to understand that multitasking accomplishes much less compared to concentrating on one task. You are better off believing and affirming that you have enough time to do all that is facing you. That way you will fill your mind with thoughts of abundance.
  1. They have been telling you that money does not grow on trees. Create an affirmative statement to counter this. Tell yourself every day that money is flowing abundantly in your life. Do not talk about lack but availability of money.

  1. You have believed that money is the root of all evil, but now you know that that is a fallacy. You need to affirm that you have enough money. Your affirmation should emphasize that all you financial needs are met within your current situation. This will create a situation in which money is abundant in your life. Create an affirmation that money will be the source of good things for you.

 

Crucial Exercises For People With A Mentality To Create Wealth

  1. Write down all the limitations you find in your life, especially by noting how you feel about various issues related to wealth such as money and your job. Be very sincere as you do this. Write what comes into your mind and study the material to see whether there are any trends.

  1. Now transform each of the negatives into a positive because every drawback is an opportunity to learn and grow. Ensure you find the silver lining in every limitation that is making you not achieve your wealth targets.
  1. Practice creating visual images of the person you want to become. Set aside a quiet time when you can create mental pictures. Where possible, have real pictures of the house you want to live in, the holiday destination you want to visit and so on.
  1. Write down your affirmations in positive terms. Take time to craft them in the best language that appeals to your mind and which you can even memorize. Make a copy that you can post on the wall in your bedroom or other convenient place. Carry a copy of your affirmations in your wallet. Have another copy in your computer or phone.
  1. Create an appropriate time to recite your affirmations, preferably first thing in the morning and before you sleep in the evening. However, during the day, take time to read through the affirmations on your computer, phone or the note in your wallet.

In conclusion, you can only attract wealth if you have the right mentality and this implies changing your negative beliefs into positive ones!!

With Love,

Your Grace Guru
