Envy, jealousy, doubt and hatred such negative emotions we often see in our daily life. When we come across a person who has done something wrong to us, we are tempted to pay him in same coins or just avoid him. If our ideas do not match we try to distance from that person. Such emotions take us away from the fundamentals of good relationship- love, care, share and happiness. But a meditator is above all these emotions. He is not effected by the negative vibrations. he is nice to people, listens to them, share and help people. So to say- Meditator Respects everyone.
What is universe? How is it connected to us? Maybe, we are the product of what the whole universe is doing, in the same way that a wave is product of what the whole ocean is doing.

On this day, one of the most beloved teachers of meditation, Osho departed from his earthly body. May his life inspire us all to work towards celebrating life.

Editor's note: This beautiful rendition of Osho was created by Ms. Meenal Patel. Our deepest gratitude to her for this amazing contribution.

Many times seekers ask - "When will things get better? I have been meditating for 2 years now and things only seem to be getting worse." Sometimes, we also expect to get enlightened within a few months. When it does not happen, we become disappointed and in some cases even give up on our practice. But in order to progress on any path, a seeker needs to develop certain qualities. Qualities that will help him weather the storms and keep going when progress seems bleak. Titiksha is one such quality. It is an invaluable gem for anyone on any path, but particularly for those who are journeying within. Titiksha is forbearance Titiksha, which also means forbearance or tolerance is a great treasure. It professes that we be patient in the process of meditation. Often during meditation we are tempted to look at our watch and see how much time is left. Titiksha asks us to resist the temptation to look at our watch.

Revolution within is the enthusiasm within, which appears as sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Thoughts have energy and power. Meditation channelises this energy.
Anger a much talked about human emotion. If it is bottled up then it can consume our love, rationality and emotional and physical health. if we direct the heat of anger towards others, it destroys everything in the path-- friendships, work relationship, marriage and family. Physiologically anger includes two stage jolt. First stage is the surge of Adrenaline which lasts for few minutes but energizes the body for immediate action. (fight or Flight) Second surge of Catecholamines lasts longer, from few hours to days. This is what can be used by sports persons, mountaineers, divers, defence persons to convert their actions into great success. So long as we control the anger we feel and don't let it control us.
