Jiddu Krishnamurti , Zen Master Huanlong, Osho, yoga, meditation, rumination, and being natural

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas

 

                                        

         

“Of what significance is meditation when reality is there!”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

           Zen Master Huanlong explains: “The Way does not need cultivation- just don't defile it. Zen does not need study- the important thing is stopping the mind. When the mind is stopped there is no rumination. Because it is not cultivated, you walk on the Way at every step. When there is no rumination, there is no world to transcend. Because it is not cultivated, there is no Way to seek.”

And Osho similarly maintained: “Sahaja [natural] yoga is the most difficult of the yogas, because there is nothing more difficult than to be effortless, natural, and spontaneous ...to flow like air and water, and not to allow the intellect to come in the way of whatever is happening. ...As soon as the intellect comes in the way, as soon as it interferes, we cease to be...natural, and begin to be...unnatural. ...what I am teaching is sahaja yoga itself. To impose doctrines and dogmas on life is to pervert life. ...All unnaturalness of our life is this- that we are always trying to be different from what we actually are.”
