Flip the switch
After intensive therapy a few years ago I booked a trip to India.
The Osho International Meditation Resort is in Pune, and I felt a deep connection with Osho, the late mystic, guru and spiritual teacher whose ashram had evolved into the resort.
But the festering frustration I’d been feeling back in Denmark soon came back. In my room was a large picture of Osho, and one night I lay down in front of it and declared, ‘I give up. Please take me, take everything. There is nothing I wish to hold onto’.
After a period of silence, I sensed a male presence and felt a hand brush along my spine, which left me feeling deeply relaxed. ‘You are not your emotions,’ a voice inside my head said. It was as if a switch had been flipped inside me, as I began to shed the attachments I’d formed to my feelings.
Back home, I took up regular meditation and now make time to sit in silence and let in the calm that Osho helped me find.
