“When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love…” –Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Thought for the day: I embrace both the Zorba and the Buddha within me

Daily Quote:
Everybody is telling you to keep a low profile. Why? Such a small life, why keep a low profile? Jump as high as you can. Dance as madly as you can.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about being able to live life fully and be spiritual too.

You can have it all… To live life fully and be spiritual too.

As you may have read before, I believe in reincarnation. I am grateful for this life and the opportunity to experience as many things as possible.

I have a chance to try different foods from different cultures. I have a chance to explore different places and get to learn different languages and cultures. I have a chance to be a better person as work through karma, and experience more grace and dharma. I have a chance to explore who I really am–especially my spirituality, and celebrate the masterpiece that is me.

Life is so short, enjoy it. Live the masterpiece that is you!

Excerpt from the course
“Zorba the Buddha”, is Osho’s vision of a new man who is whole, not split between materialism and spirituality – a person able to celebrate every aspect of life. Zorba the Greek, as portrayed in an old movie, is a man who embraces the pleasures of the body through all his senses. He enjoys life to the fullest. Zorba is playfulness. The other dimension of the new man is represented by ‘Buddha’, the embodiment of the spiritual, the silence and awareness that lie beyond the material world, or hidden in its deepest depths. For Osho, these two are complementary, not divisive. His vision is the synthesis of Zorba and Buddha.

Zorba is the foundation and Buddha is the palace. Buddha is the peak, but the foundation stones are laid by Zorba. It will be foolish to choose to be a Buddha without having the foundation stones. The Buddha is asleep in the Zorba. It has to be awakened. And nobody can awaken you except life itself. First become a Zorba, a flower of this earth, and earn the capacity through it to become a Buddha – the flower of the other world.”

I had to play in the swing and let the sun kiss me all over with its warmth!

20140731-063838.jpgDay 11 – Everybody Is Creative

Thought for the day: As I go through the day, I allow my creativity to spring forth

Daily Quote:
A creative act enhances the beauty of the world. It gives something to the world, it never takes anything from it.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about creativity.

Osho said that we have a limited view of creativity. This is something we have learned.

Everyone can be creative. It is not in the activity itself, but is in the attitude… the inner approach or how we look at things… that makes us all creative. It is in the way we love, enjoy, and being grateful for what we are doing or creating.

We can do any activity (i.e. dancing, poetry, etc.) in a noncreative way. But when we add quality to what we are doing, then even if we just sit silently, we are being creative.

Everyone is born creative, but we have forgotten that through what we learned from our culture, society, or other learned conditioning. Osho advises to observe children as they play and create–as they enjoy whatever they are doing, because they have not given into conditioning yet. They are simply enjoying and sharing. We can learn from them.

We, each of us, were born here in this life for a reason. Each of us is a major contributor in this life. Be creative and share your creativity with the world.

Excerpt from the course:
Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing it is not purely economical, then it is creative. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is spiritual, it is creative, it is divine. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it, whatsoever it is – irrelevant of the fact of what it is.”
