synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You said that either one sees the world or the Brahman and that no gradually increasing perception of the Brahman is possible. But in experience we feel that as we become aware and more silent and still, the feeling of the divine presence becomes gradually clearer and clearer. What is this gradual growth and clarity if the authentic experience is never gradual, but sudden?
Question 2
You said that life exists in polar opposites like love and hate, attraction and repulsion, virtue and vice, etcetera. But what happens to these polar opposites when one is in the witnessing consciousness?
Question 3
You said that when a person is totally in the present moment without any thought in the mind, then he is a buddha-mind. But even when there is no thought in me and I am in the moment, absorbed, with no past or future, I do not feel the Buddha-nature. Please explain when in this thoughtless awareness the Buddha-mind is revealed.
Question 4
What are the possible reasons for not having an explosive catharsis? I constantly, even with today's shaktipat meditation, have only a very mild catharsis. Does it necessarily mean that I am not open or not open enough, or are there other possible reasons? My concern over this then becomes a distraction to me during the meditation and after.
