This book helped me find the deepest mindfulness or living in the present I have found Maybe it can help you on your journey too! It's not a good first book on these topics, I'd read Eckhart Tolle for that but this takes it deeper I'll read it again soon! Big fan and I don't say that about just any book, I quit reading two others half way before this one because they were not impactful. Jan 25, Diana rated it liked it.

There are more than a few moments when I wonder is Osho was misanthropic. Many other moments, absolute guru-ic genius. Mar 19, Sandra rated it really liked it Recommended to Sandra by: Ja aizmirsi, kas par to? Nepmierinies ar to, ka esi "labs". Tas pats sev ir balva. Neviens nekad to nav paveicis.

I will read the book once again. Jul 08, Mallikarjun Yelameli rated it it was amazing. Buddha's mindful meditation is the greatest gift to the world.

Being aware every moment is the most important thing. Meditation can only make one aware. Osho says, meditation is the only true religion. Life has no goal no purpose, life itself is the goal and purpose, awareness is the technique to attain it. Awareness is the difference between death and life.

Buddha's one of the most important teaching is being aware every moment. By practicing mindful meditation, one reaches, to his or her inner Buddha's mindful meditation is the greatest gift to the world. By practicing mindful meditation, one reaches, to his or her inner core and one will come to know that, misery is the state of unconsciousness. A must read book. Osho had explained lucidly, the importance of being aware with various examples and stories.

It's hard to imagine, the world without Buddha. Osho had left no stone unturned to convey the message of Buddha. Osho had his own style of explaining and convincing, which was really great.

Jan 27, Bettina rated it it was amazing. I wish I could manage to do it one day and to find the balance everytime I loose it You move as people move in sleep. Yes, we have become very efficient in doing things. It has become mechanical, automatic.

We function like robots. We live mechanical, automatic, unconscious lives. If you look at other people, you can see this quite well. People are never really here-now, never really alert and conscious. They are always asleep, either worrying about the future or thinking about the past. And so are you. And so am I. The opposite of that state is being present, what Osho calls awareness. Awareness means being present to the moment. It means being fully alert, fully conscious, fully here-now.

It means inhabiting the present moment with all five senses. You are simply taking in everything the moment has to offer. Not thinking about yesterday. Not thinking about tomorrow. Just washing the dishes. Feeling the warm water running down your hands and arms. Seeing the ceramic of the dishes getting cleaner and cleaner. Watch every act that you do. Watch every thought that passes in your mind. Watch every desire that takes possession of you. Watch even small gestures — walking, talking, eating, taking a bath.

Go on watching everything. Let everything become an opportunity to watch.

Awareness: The Key to Living in Balance

Being watchful, being aware, being alert — those are all the same things. We can also call it mindfulness, a term which you may be more familiar with. Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

Call it what you like. The book is all about growing this skill. There are only two ways out of it: Or the cheaper way is to find something that can make you even more unconscious than you are, so you cannot feel the misery. Find something that makes you utterly insensitive, some intoxicant, some painkiller that makes you so unconscious that you can escape into that unconsciousness and forget all about your anxiety, anguish, meaninglessness. People are living in suffering. It is impossible to live without experiencing some kind of suffering. We endure physical suffering like injury, exhaustion, sickness, old age, and eventually death.

And we endure psychological suffering like fear, frustrations, loneliness, embarrassment, disappointment, the death of loved ones, and so on. So, how do you get out of it? According to Osho, there are two ways. The first way out of suffering is meditation, awareness, mindfulness. Of course, this is the way Osho and other spiritual masters recommend. One that requires patience, hard work, and persistence. The second way to alleviate suffering is to simply cover it up by becoming unconscious.

This is what most of us do all the time. When we feel the slightest itch of negative emotions, we turn on the television, play video games, read the news, hop on Facebook, or check our emails. This second way has become a real way of life for most of us. We dread even a moment of being alone with ourselves and our emotions.

We have a desperate need to stay unconscious, so that we are unaware of our suffering. Hawkins, another spiritual teacher, put it well in his book Letting Go: We observe how often people flick on the television set the minute they enter a room and then walk around in a dream-like state, constantly being programmed by the data poured into them. People are terrified of facing themselves. They dread even a moment of aloneness. Thus the constant frantic activities: The very phenomenon of watching it, changes it. The very fact that you are aware changes your acts.

Why does clarity arise out of watchfulness? Because the more watchful you become the more all your hastiness slows down. You become more graceful. As you watch, your chattering mind chatters less, because the energy that was becoming chattering is turning and becoming watchfulness — it is the same energy! Now more and more energy will be transformed into watchfulness, and the mind will not get its nourishment.

Thoughts will start becoming thinner, they will start losing weight. Slowly, slowly, they will start dying. And as thoughts start dying, clarity arises.
