The world is already a METAverse, we need to come out of it instead…

JUST LIVE and EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR is written in English the shirt of this boy wearing a Virtual Reality headgear.. While to live as human being he has to remove ‘Ego’ from his life and that is biggest fear.
My English is poor, pronunciation is further ahead of it. Still I write so that you may get a glimpse towards which I am pointing to, like it happens when you ask a stranger in non-English speaking country about something and he or she tries to explain it. If you are thirsty of this knowledge, so you get it too. The consciousness plays an important role in communicating the point at much higher level where we all are connected because I am writing only from my own experiences or understanding.
You may prefer to listen, in US English, to this post from my Podcast – Philosia (दर्शन) and i also hava a podcast in Hindi -दर्शन (Philosia).

In one of the talks Osho says:
“These idiots have been creating new fads in psychology, psychoanalysis, therapy – and making millions of dollars, and fooling people. It is not enlightenment.
And if this is enlightenment then there is no need for enlightenment. It’s perfectly good to go to the bathroom … forget all about the enlightenment.”
The East has never bothered with the mind, has not even taken note of it, has ignored it.
From Patanjali to Gautama the Buddha, to Shankara, to Ramakrishna, to J. Krishnamurti – all tradition does not bother with the mind.
The mind is mentioned for only one purpose: how to transcend it.
Hundreds of methods have been found that can help you transcend the mind, and once you are beyond the mind all your problems look like someone else’s problems.
You reach observer status in the hills, and all the trouble is in the valleys. And they have no impact on you; you’ve gone beyond them.
The West has remained completely mind-centered. In the West the only thing they have thought about is matter and mind.
And matter is reality and mind is just a by-product; beyond the mind there is nothing.
In the East matter is illusory, mind is a by-product of all your illusions, projections, dreams.
Your reality is beyond matter and mind, both.
So we divide reality in the East into three parts:
matter, the most external; Matter has a relative reality;it is not absolutely real, just relatively real.
the soul, the innermost; and the soul is absolutely real.
the mind is in the middle of both. The mind is absolutely unreal,
This is a totally different categorization of humanity. In the West the categories are simple: matter is real, mind is just a by-product, and there is nothing beyond mind.
So remember, if you are meditating nothing else is necessary. If you are not meditating, then these psychotherapies can be helpful as a stepping stone to meditation.

My comments from my own experience may help you to understand few terms or sentences or definitions that Osho used in this talk.
When i used to read Osho’s books i could also not understand many such terms or sentences but i kept reading his books, experimenting whatever is suggested in his books and also kept meditating. Awareness meditation in the morning and Zen meditation in the evening whenever i got time. This helped me to one day fall into the reality. So from my experience and using examples and words in use now a days i am trying to let you understand exactly the Osho’s message to you.
Here i am going to describe in details whatever i have converted into bold or bold and italics both in above talk of Osho.
Taking example of a boy wearing a Virtual Reality headgear and playing a VR game, as in the image i used at top.
The boy is Reality or the soul or your true self or you can say that the boy’s physical body is surrounded by the kingdom of God.
His ego (the hero of the game in VR) is unreal because it does not exists as an entity but the mind keeps projecting something upon it. So for the boy it seems that the ego too exist and it becomes so real that he forgets that he is separate from the VR game. Here the VR is like the mind.
While playing the game with totality, authenticity the Hero in the game can unlock the QUANTUM power. This power lets the ‘Hero of the game’ to know the reality of the game that it is Virtual and reality of the self that he is the watcher only, while still playing the game as Hero. Once it happens then whatever he do in quantum state is called as ‘Leela’ ie play.
As soon as the boy comes to know that he is not the AVATAR but outside of the game and that the game is Virtual, reality of AVATAR and the everything & everyone in the game becomes unreal.
When this happens in real life it is called enlightenment or awakening or entering the kingdom of God. Now the person interacts with other in outside world as an AVATAR in the game, while he himself is enjoying ultimate freedom being living inside the kingdom of God within. This dual state of a human being is same as quantum state of an atom.
The boy is able to play the game through the boy’s AVATAR means Ego. So everything ‘in the VR game’ is ‘relatively real’ provided the AVATAR is considering himself as real, but actually it is not so.
This is said as watching from the hill while the (Virtual Reality game) game is being played in the valley by Osho. Your reality is at different realm or different level from the stage or valley where the game of life is being played.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.
Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
