Surrender it to Krishna

download (1)

Met a lovely girl recently and she shared this practice that she does (or tries to) every night.

At the end of each day, surrender all your actions to Krishna. Good ones, bad ones, things you din’t do, things you should’ve, things you could’ve. Just offer them all to Krishna.

And the next day start with a clean slate.

No owing people, no making up for your misdeeds, no guilt, no recriminations. Every night give it up and every morning start anew.

We are so caught up in the past and the future baggage that we completely miss the today. All that we owe people, all that people owe us. All the things we should do because they are expected from us. And our expectations from others. If it can happen in those 24 hrs do it. If not, let Krishna do the balancing.

If every day starts with no one to owe and nothing to balance out, how liberating would that be.

All the deeds of the previous day – good, bad, ugly – forget them at the end of the day. And it’s not just the dropping of the guilt for all your misdeeds. It is also the basking in the glory of your good deeds. Bask away – but just for a day. Because tomorrow the slate will be clean.

The flip side to you not owing anything to anybody is that nobody owes you either. And think about what you would do, how you would behave, what you would not do, if you were not collecting goodwill or IOUs from others. And see how you start taking precedence over everything else!

Try it for a month and see how it changes you and the world around you.

Not Guilty

403842_424986514218193_234706208_n

Once Mulla was told lay his wife to take junior for a ride in the park. On the way Mulla was met by his friends who wanted loin to play poker with them. Mulla refused and said that he had promised his wife to take junior to the park.

Mulla’s friends looked at junior and remarked I hope he it satisfied. The other friend said Yes depriving us of a partner just before our last crucial poker game and all because junior has to ride around in his old stroller. I just hope he is satisfied. Mulla junior looked sadly at the sky and to aught My first year in this world and I am already feeling guilty. ~ Osho
It is an arduous task to not feel guilt. We feel it when we leave our kids to go to work, we feel it when we think about our aging parents, we feel it when we’re out with friends (with our spouse at home or with friends who are not there), when we lose our temper, when we lie, when we make excuses to not meet someone….the list is endless isn’t it. And the most amazing thing of all is if we don’t feel guilty, we feel guilty about not feeling the guilt. It’s a vicious trap that we are lured into at a young young age and then we are so conditioned that we start finding it pleasurable.

Guilt does nothing for you. It doesn’t change the situation, doesn’t make anybody feel better, only succeeds in making one more person (you!) miserable.

If you have really done something you feel bad about, remember that you are only compounding it by feeling guilt over it. Just believe that What is, Is. Trust that it was always meant to be. Once the action is taken, know that it was beyond your control. It was one of the fixed destined events that just had to happen. And there is nothing you could have done to change it. Do the best you can and once it’s done, move on from it.

When you feel the guilt creeping up, remember that what others feel is their story. If they feel let down or upset because of you, it is still their story. If it hadn’t been you it would have been someone else that would make them feel that way. You were just incidental to the process. You are only responsible for how you feel. So stop feeling the guilt!!

Feel love, feel compassion, feel kindness, just let go of the guilt…

Action and Re-action

3v30m5

Action – The fact or process of doing something

Reaction – An action performed or a feeling experienced in response to a situation or event

The entire Bhagwad Gita is a dialogue between Arjun & Krishna at the cusp of an epic battle. Arjun looks at the enemy and can only see his kin and wants to leave the battlefield, saying it’s not worth the heartache to follow and that this is not good karma to collect.

And Krishna tells him, ‘dude, what makes you think you have a say in this? The wheels were set in motion long ago. Only concentrate on the action. The action is the arrow releasing from the bow because you are the greatest archer on earth. And if you can release the arrow without thinking about your kin or about the spoils of war or the ravages of war. If you can only focus on the action of the arrow hitting its target, then there is no karma to collect, because the rest is just a reaction and it is not your story.

We erroneously believe that we have control over our actions. What we don’t realize that we are constantly only reacting to things.

Lets start at the beginning of the day. You wake up. Is that an action or a reaction? Are you reacting to the sun shining? If you are waking at the crack of dawn with an alarm for office or a flight – are you not reacting to the fact that you need to be there?

When you choose to do something for a friend – is that not a reaction to the many things they may have done in the past or to your emotions? When you do something nice for a homeless person, are you not reacting to your beliefs and emotions?

All of life is a reaction to life. And it is amazing – that interconnectedness. And it is amazingly humbling as well, because if I am just a reaction then, without the rest I don’t exist. And I exist for the little sparrow outside by window. And for the other little and big life around us, our family, friends, the guy at the checkout, the cabbie, the kitten you petted once. All of it – you exist because of all of it. Do you feel it – that amazing gratitude that swells up inside you?

Frankly I can’t think of a single thing in my life that I can classify as an action, an action like in the Krishna story. Where I have been so focussed on the arrow that can’t see anything else. The only exception is a direct channeling, where you wonder why you are saying what you are saying and it makes no sense :).

Actions do exist, but we are simply not responsible for them, we have no control over them. All we can do is be aware of our reactions and then react according to who we are and who we choose to be. Also know that you are responsible for only your reaction. How others react is nothing to do with you. Liberating isn’t it? Just being responsible for your reactions!

You Fool!

fool-tarot-card-osho-deck

A fool is one who goes on trusting; a fool is one who goes on trusting against all his experience. You deceive him, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you. Then you will say that he is a fool, he does not learn. His trust is tremendous; his trust is so pure that nobody can corrupt it.

Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. Don´t try to create a wall of knowledge around you. Whatsoever experience comes to you, let it happen, and then go on dropping it. Go on cleaning your mind continuously; go on dying to the past so you remain in the present, herenow, as if just born, just a babe.

In the beginning it is going to be very difficult. The world will start taking advantage of you…let them. They are poor fellows. Even if you are cheated and deceived and robbed, let it happen, because that which is really yours cannot be robbed from you, that which is really yours nobody can steal from you.

And each time you don´t allow situations to corrupt you, that opportunity will become an integration inside. Your soul will become more crystallized.

~ Osho Dang Dang Doko Dang Chapter 2

Love Osho! He has made me redefine so many words. It seems that I am re-learning the language as I’m walking along the spiritual path. Words that were originally negative are slowly becoming positive. Some words I’m learning to drop. Some more I’m using a lot more. Love Osho!
