Osho’s meditations use breathing, dancing, or shaking as a way of letting go of the needed baggage most of you carry on your shoulders due to your conditioning. They help one to feel lighter and at ease with oneself, and get in contact with the life energy within directly through the body. One then reaches a center within easier than with classical sitting meditation and a deeper quality of silence and contact with one’s self.
Meditation is not anything of the mind, it is something beyond the mind. The first step is to be playful about it. If you are playful about it, the mind cannot destroy your meditation. Otherwise, it will turn it into another ego trip; it will make you very serious.
