The Dark Night of the Soul also exists for fighters!
“It all depends on you. You can sleep forever, or wake up right now.” – Osho
Being unaware of your actions, thoughts and emotions creates the dark night of the soul.
The moment you are aware of these three levels of your being… Thought is the most superficial level, feeling – emotions – is a little deeper, and then there is the being: the last thing you have to disperse when you get to the supreme.
The process is simple, the process is always the same.
Observe, be a witness, observe thoughts – without any judgment, without conviction and without judgment… The moment you make a judgment – for or against – you are no longer a witness: you have already become part of the thought process.
Stay silent, and just watch what goes through the screen of your mind, the same way you watch a movie.
Just remember that you’re just a spectator.
And the same process, when you were able to use it at the first level, will also make you able to observe your emotions, which are more subtle.
The person who sees thoughts and remains silent, remains a witness, automatically becomes able to take this second step.
And very soon you will be able to observe the feelings, the moods, the moods, the emotions.
When you’ve passed the second stage, face the third… it is the deepest within you, the feeling of the ego, the separation between you and the universe.
In fact there is no separation, not even for a moment, separate you can not even exist.
You are in harmony with the universe, in all possible ways.
There are countless bridges between you and the existence that surrounds you.
Now observe this silence, this ‘being’, this feeling of ‘I am’ – just observe.
There’s nothing else to observe, just a little territory around you.
When you look at thoughts, thoughts disappear.
Or when you look at emotions, emotions disappear.
or when you look at being, you’re no longer separated.
All that remains is the witness, which is your eternal reality.
It has nothing to do with you: it is universal.
Your witness and my witness are not separated.
Witnessing, wherever it happens, is the same.
It knows neither distances of space nor time.
For the witness there is no space and there is no time: there are no limits.
Before we get to this point… everything else is the dark night of the soul.
When you come to this witness, the beautiful day of the soul is born.
The sun rises and no longer sets.
But just listening to me won’t help.
You’ll have to practice it as much as you can.
You don’t need to spend a particular time on it: sit in meditation for an hour or twenty minutes, and observe.
If you have time you can sit quietly and testify, but it is not necessary.
You can keep doing your job and still testify.
The point is how to make this witness stronger and stronger, more robust, so you can lose all identity. Only a strong person can lose all identities.
And when you’re in total silence… there is light, a light that has never begun and will never end.
It can be yours, you just have to claim possession of it.
The effort is not as great as the religions told you.
If you walk down the street, what’s the problem?
Why can’t you just watch the walk?
The point is not what you’re looking at, the point is, you’re watching, you’re a witness.
Anything can help you strengthen your observational energies.
If you watch a beautiful sunset, don’t get lost, don’t forget yourself.
Remember, you’re just an observer.
It can go on 24 hours a day without anyone knowing what you’re doing.
Religiousness is not something the world should be aware of.
It’s something you have to do inside yourself.
Start at this very moment.
This immense silence – thousands of people, but there seems to be no one… Looks. The distant noise of an airplane… He remains a mere witness.
Then keep practicing the same thing whatever you do, if you eat, shower, or work in the garden or in the fields.
No matter what you do, what matters is that the witness is always there.
At first you will forget many times, because for many lives you have never been a witness, you were always the one who acts.
It’s just an old habit: old habits are hard to die for, but sooner or later they die for sure.
It’s all up to you.
The more you do it, the more you do it, the more it’s like breathing… You do all kinds of things, and yet you keep breathing.
It’s not like you’re just going to stop breathing because you’re digging a hole in the ground.
Observing must become like breathing.
It is actually the breath of the universal soul that you continue in you.
And when you’ve ‘tasted’ even a moment when you’re universal… came in the morning.
The dark night of the soul is over.
