Let Go of the Flesh

Let Go of the Flesh

“As long as you hold onto wealth, someone is bound to be your enemy; as long as you hold onto your flesh others will not leave you in peace.  In truth there are no enemies, only you catch hold of the wrong things.  Whenever you grasp hold of something, even your friend will seem an enemy.” – Osho “The True Name” pg. 478

My time on YouTube was my flesh; I had no peace back then.  I was constantly battling and fighting, not just with the online community, but with my students and my family.  I created many enemies because I was holding onto the wrong things.  I lost hold of my spirituality.  I didn’t make any time to read and write, I was all focused on the material world and forgot about my spiritual development and meditation.  I was heading towards the wrong path and leading others towards the wrong path.  It came to an end for a reason.  Now I am in much greater peace, my students are in greater peace, and my family is in greater peace.  I have refocused my energies on my spiritual development.  I am reading everyday, I am writing everyday, I am working on developing myself to be better in meditation.  Things are going in a great direction and I am thankful for these life experiences.

  1. Honestly, I am falling behind spiritually. I have not been reading Osho books for a long time. I believe that I have become more racist because of that. When I was talking to you on the phone, I feel like I was always pointing fingers at "white people" a lot. Even when i do not even talk about it, the white people concept is still on my mind and I do not want to keep holding on to it. Maybe I should spend more time bettering myself in meditation. Thank you for reminding me about that.
