Don’t deny anything, because the moment you deny, you are denying something in you…OSHO
Let me tell you a few basic things.
One, meditation is not concentration but relaxation — one simply relaxes into oneself. The more you relax, the more you feel yourself open, vulnerable, the more you are less rigid, you are more flexible — and suddenly existence starts penetrating you. You are no longer like a rock, you have openings.
Relaxation means allowing yourself to fall into a state where you are not doing anything, because if you are doing something, tension will continue. It is a state of non-doing. You simply relax and you enjoy the feeling of relaxation.
Relax into yourself, just close your eyes, and listen to all that is happening all around. No need to feel anything as distraction. The moment you feel it is a distraction, you are denying God. This moment God has come to you as a bird. Don't deny. He has knocked at your door as a bird. The next moment he has come as a dog — barking, or as a child crying and weeping, or as a madman laughing. Don't deny; don't reject; accept — because if you deny you will become tense. All denials create tension.
Accept. If you want to relax, acceptance is the way. Accept whatsoever is happening all around; let it become an organic whole. It is — you may know it or you may not know it.
Everything is inter-related. These birds, these trees, this sky, this sun, this earth, you, me — all are related. It is an organic unity. If the sun disappears, the trees will disappear; if the trees disappear, the birds will disappear; if the birds and trees disappear, you cannot be here, you will disappear. It is an ecology.
Everything is deeply related with each other.
So don't deny anything, because the moment you deny, you are denying something in you. If you deny these singing birds then something in you is denied.
