All the Buddhas in the East have given only one meditation: watchfulness, awareness…OSHO
Meditation means SEEING, becoming aware, that those days are over, the fear is no more there, nobody is going to punish you. It is just an old habit.
Snap out of it with as little fanfare as possible. Don't make much fuss about it.
Because you make much fuss about it so many therapies have evolved.
They are just aids for you so that you can make a fuss scientifically, so that your fuss is rationalized. But they are not needed by intelligent people.
An intelligent person is one who can see that it is no more night, it is day. Why are you afraid of darkness?
Do you need first to scream for three hours against the night and the dark and the fear?
That will be utterly stupid! That will destroy the day. Why waste it? The night is no more.
That's why in the East we have not developed any therapeutic methods like the West, for the simple reason that we came to understand one thing: that all that is needed is a little intelligence — and everybody has it.
And meditation helps the intelligence to become sharp.
Just seeing is enough; seeing brings transformation. And when transformation comes without any long process it is far deeper. When it takes a long process that means it will remain superficial.
Seeing is transformation.
That is our experience in the East.
