Osho.... A person who changed definition of being spiritual. One who said that "Even a making a cup of tea can be joyful if it made being conscious.
Most of us live a programmed life & follow our basic instinct which make us automotive. We are in this global world surrounded from all social media keep our self updated by bit of every second. Monday to Friday live a busy scheduled life face many ups and downs. In this between we all try to find minutes for celebration by doing favourite thing either drinking musicing and many more
Is that bring celebration...
Why we do not feel celebrated doing every job. .. Osho said that people are living almost in sleep; Otherwise every fabric every cloth has its own beauty, its own feel, if you are sensitive then the clothing will not just to cover your body; then it is something expressing your individuality, Something expressing your taste your culture, and your being.
Everything that you do should be expressive of you ; Its should have your signature on it. Then life become a conscious celebration beyond enlightenment.
The tea is prepared in a special samovar which makes beautiful sounds, a music of its own. And it is part of the tea ceremony that everybody should listen first to the music of the tea. So everybody is silent, listening...birds chirping outside in the garden, and the samovar and the tea is creating its own song. A peace surrounds it....
When the tea is ready and it is poured into everybody’s cup, you are not just to drink it the way people are doing everywhere. First, you will smell the aroma of the tea. You will sip the tea as if it has come from the beyond, you will take time - there is no hurry. Somebody may start playing on the flute or on the sitar.
An ordinary thing - just tea - and they have made it a beautiful religious festival, and everybody comes out of it nourished, fresh, feeling younger, feeling juicier. And what can be done with tea can be done with everything - with your clothes, with your food.
Time To Wake Up
People are living almost in sleep; otherwise, every fabric, every cloth has its own beauty, its own feel. If you are sensitive, then the clothing is not just to cover your body; then it is something expressing your individuality, something expressing your taste, your culture, and your being.
Everything that you do should be expressive of you; it should have your signature on it. Then life becomes a continuous celebration.
All cultures set aside days for celebration to break the mono-tony, so you’re not lost in sadness
True celebration should come from your life, in your life, not according to a religious calendar
Everything you do should be expressive of you; then life will become an ongoing celebration
