Don’t be satisfied sleepwalking through life anymore!

7. Live wakefully 

(Osho’s Seventh New Commandment)

Cast conformity aside 

In this modern technological era, we don’t have to think, speak, or act for or from our Self, this is all accomplished for us by the mechanisms of government and society. We relinquish control over our own steering wheel and as we do this we have no need to think independently, no need to speak independently, and no need to act independently. We are lemmings racing to a future of compliance, conformity, and obedience and all the while having no idea that this is our future. Our blinders are on, our eyes are closed to spirituality, our minds are sealed from defiance, and our tongues are silenced from speaking original thoughts. Let’s liberate our Self of the yoke that is thrown over us like a net over a school of spawning salmon attempting to find their way home, and before we are trapped forever from reaching our ultimate goal of enlightenment,

Our elected officials, our government have an agenda to fulfill; our society has an agenda to fulfill, fed by the words and actions of our elected officials; and those around us have an agenda to fulfill.

Truth is not commercialism 

Now is the time we open our eyes to see and comprehend what is being presented as truth to us; the truth that is embedded in commercialism, the truth that is shrouded in greed, and the truth that is twisted un-recognizably from non-truth to truth. It is an arduous task since the roots of non-truth have grown deep within your soul, mind, and body. The seeds of untruths have had months, years, and possibly decades after being planted to germinate, and to bore fruit; this kind of harvested fruit is not sweet to the taste nor pleasant to the touch…fruit that ripens as an untruth was never, is never, and can never be beautiful or fulfilling to your soul or your body. This type of fruit is harmful to your being, soul, mind, and body; it perpetuates the lemming mentality. Hence, it is wise never to allow it take hold, germinate, or mature into the fruit that takes away your ability to think, speak, and act of your own volition.

Unbind the the mental chains 

In order to occupy a space of higher being, a higher level of consciousness, and a more acute level of awareness…you must cut the mental chains that bind you. You must clear away the fog that clouds your vision of what life is and what it has become at the hands of those who wish to control you through their agendas. It begins with questioning what is being fed to you, what is being forced upon you, and what is being thrust at you. Once you take that step to see the reality that modern life has become, you soon see that you have lost control and you must take control of your Self once again.

Cooperation not competition 

As you take control, you walk through the sunlight in a cooperative mind; a mind that lacks ego, is devoid of power, and shuns celebrity. You lose control when you live in the shadows of a competitive mind; it must be so since you want power, wealth, and celebrity over others…it is their loss and it is your gain. You win…they lose. This is not pure existence, being awake, and walking in higher realms of being…this is impure existence, being asleep and walking in lower realms of being.

Being awake is innate 

Experience the feeling of being awake at all times; you don’t have to chase after it…it is within you, all you need to do is open your eyes, mind, and Self to the innate beauty that is awareness, a closeness to truth and a distance from untruth. It has been provided to you by the Source; it is inclusive and not exclusive to you and only you, or exclusive to others and not inclusive to you.

Where do we find truth in this day and age?

3. Truth is within, do not look elsewhere.

(Osho’s Third New Commandment)

We are truth 

Each of us is the physical manifestation of a compassionate, loving Source who is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, the start and the finish. As such, we are the embodiment of truth…we are created from truth and we retain the truth deep within. Our truth is not seen on the outside by others, but it is felt on the inside by each of us. And it is our truth and ours alone that helps us to live a joyful and meaningful life.

Quiet the noise 

header20Our modern technological age has many distractions; television, computers, and mobiles all get in line to take a piece out of us, as we surrender one piece at a time these cannot be replaced unless we endure a great deal of angst and difficulty. Still, we must find truth,our truth even though we face a myriad of roadblocks that blind us from the truth. How do we find truth? We must quiet the noise that threatens to smother us, takes away truth, forms barriers between us and what we know is the truth for us. The best way to turn down the white noise of modernity and make it inaudible is to meditate on a regular basis. As we face our self in quiet solitude, we face our truth, and as we face our truth we face the truth that has been given freely and lovingly by the Source.

Truth has no physical shape 

Do not look at an expensive watch for truth; do not look at a costly automobile for truth; and do not look at a spacious mansion for truth…you will be disappointed if you think these material goods will reveal the truth to you. If perchance, you do believe that these hold the truth that you are seeking, it is only an illusion, one that is able to fool your five worldly senses but one that cannot fool your unworldly senses.

Be selfish and pursue truth 

Some of us may think that it is selfish to pursue truth, this idea is as far from the truth as it possibly can be. When we pursue truth we are fulfilling our love for and the obligation to the Source to be the best we can be. This is not being selfish…this is being selfless. Untainted by the perils of modern day living, we end up at our original place of being, a hallowed place that is formed by the positive energy emitted by the light and the love of our Creator.

Truth is to be lived, each moment at a time 

We live truth, we are truth in our present physical manifestation…we cannot create it…we cannot see it…we cannot buy it…we can only live it, and we live it when we close our eyes and listen to the truth that we hold within.
