Vigyan Bhairav Tantra (Verses 13 - 23)

She Who Shines Everywhere sings,
You who hold the mysteries in your hand —
Of will, knowledge and action —
Reveal to me this path of illumined knowing.
I long to merge with you,
Be filled with your nourishing essence.
Lead me into joyous union
With the life of the universe,
That I may know it fully,
Realise it deeply,
And breathe in luminous truth.

Three Stages of Enlightenment (according to Osho)

There are three stages of enlightenment. The first is when the first glimpse happens. I call it mini-satori. When, for the first time, for a single moment mind is not functioning, there is a gap – no thought between you and existence. You and existence, you and existence… for a moment… and the meeting, and the merging, and the communion, and the orgasm… but for a moment. And from that moment the seed will be in your heart and growing.

The Illusion of Romantic Love & Four Elements of Love

Last night I was at home editing my second poetry book called Awakening to Love. Initially, this poetry book was supposed to be called This Eternal Romance and it was meant to publish it early this year on Valentine’s Day. However, it wasn’t meant to happen, as my definition on what love is has radically shifted, with a 180 degree change, particularly in the past month.

Enlightenment is our natural state, we are all born enlightenment, we are all born as Divine beings with unconditional love to existence.

The Importance of Bramacharya in Tantra

Thoughts on Spiritual purity. Sexual continence. Brahmacharya and Enlightenment. More and more recently, I found sex has lost its grip on me, particularly after my ayahuasca experience in the Amazon jungle (I will write an article about this). I haven't had sex for a few months and now I feel there is no desire for sex, not even the desire for so-called sacred sexuality.

The Rebel (Osho Zen Tarot)

The powerful and authoritative figure in this card is clearly the master of his own destiny. On his shoulder is an emblem of the sun, and the torch he holds in his right hand symbolizes the light of his own hard-won truth. Whether he is wealthy or poor, the Rebel is really an emperor because he has broken the chains of society's repressive conditioning and opinions. He has formed himself by embracing all the colours of the rainbow, emerging from the dark and formless roots of his unconscious past and growing wings to fly into the sky. His very way of being is rebellious- not because he is fighting against anybody or anything, but because he has discovered his own true nature and is determined to live in accordance with it. The eagle is his spirit animal, a messenger between earth and sky.
