A Letter to Girlfriend

Dear Sweetie,
So I am writing a letter to you not because I wanted to but because of the "expected" events happening around. The Tsunami's and Keterina's have devastated the under-sea cables and I could not mail you. The mobile signal is nowhere to be seen because Reliance[ADAG] is operating some 200000 people on a single tower, as far as I understand the cause, so there is network congestion. Vodafone people are busy running behind their sweet little dog so lets not talk about them.Rest of the operators are not offering me any connection because I am working with a troubled company, you know what I mean [:(], as far as post paid connection is concerned it is as easy as getting a visa to Pakistan.

This weekend I wanted to come down to Bangalore but those MNS and KRV people are just mind blowing. I don't know how they know about my plans, every time.This time they started fighting over Belgaum issue like bloody dogs. They burnt the buses and Karnataka Govt. has stopped the bus service to Pune. As far as airway is concerned you know the condition, company is not sure about the total employees so how can one talk about the salary.I have heard that MNS people are also starting a headcount-exercise, so that they get to know about the exact figures they have to settle.But you don't worry about me because I am good at running and escaping, I'll try my level best to see you in the next 5 years because this situation is going to remain for the next 5 years, I hope.

P.S: Half imagination, Half Reality but will be true one day for sure.No hard feelings, things just happen.

Enlightenment-2 :):)

We started back to our place and decided to come back next day. Next morning, we both reached our company [the troubled one] and as soon as we reached there, we started back to Osho Center, obviously after having the cheapest and tastiest lunch ever provided :) We reached meditation center just in time, exactly at 2 in the afternoon. Again I entered the same place, started feeling the same way, met the same lady and watched everything the same way as I did yesterday. I felt that something had split from me and watching everything around me. It was consciousness, I guess though I am not that much sure :). It can be Osho's magic, which still exists, I believe he was a perfect businessman and a magician. As usual I took the last seat where we were to be shown a video film. The same lady came and looked at me and it started again.

Old Lady: Why don't you come up in the front?
Me: I am fine over here.
Old Lady:The front seats are vacant, you can come here.
Me(Smiling):I am comfortable here.
Old Lady:May be you have come to check out the girls over here.
There are a lot of foreigners [girls] in the center. Actually there are only foreigners, if you know what I mean.

Me:Smiling, smiling and smiling.

I wanted to say that I'll do that as well, if you offer that thing in a 10 rupee ticket.The words came to my lips and then vanished away. I just smiled and smiled. At that moment I felt pity for the old lady, I don't know how and why, but god bless her, if exists.

I never felt such a joy. I never found any situation as beautiful and enjoyable as this one. I had never watched myself before this and now I know.

Moral of the story:
1. I guess I am now aware of what am I doing.
2. I guess I know what is the meaning of being conscious.
3. May be, may not be, who knows.

Life is beautiful,njoy.

Enlightenment-1 :) :)

Now this is something unreal, something not me or may be only "me". As always, I was too much preoccupied with my self. With this state of my mind I went to visit the great Osho's five star (or may be seven star, if it exists) meditation resort, OSHO INTERNATIONAL. Me and Lokesh, in spite of the chaos and things going upside down in our company, went to see the meditation center. Now there hap penned something that enlightened me. I don't know how and why it happened there, in Osho's abode [I guess he is still alive :)], but it simply happened.
We both went there and found that the tickets for the tour of the center for that day had been sold away. We bought the tickets for the next day in advance, and inquired the old lady issuing them about the mediation courses being offered. Now here starts the experience, read along;

Me: What are the meditation courses and how do we register for them?
Old Lady: Why do you want to know about them?
Me(Somewhat surprised by the lady's reaction): Because I want to, as simple as anything.
Old Lady: I am in a bad mood today, don't mind.
Me: Why should I? Anyways, that's your problem not mine.
Old Lady (Giving me What a loser! look): There is one Welcome Center outside. Go there and inquire.
Me:Its as simple as anything, you could have told this thing to me before as well.

At this moment something happened and I found "myself" observing "myself". Believe me this happens. All of a sudden I found everything amusing, I watched myself behaving in a very queer manner over the matter of no importance. I saw myself calming down and observing everything from a higher plane. Thereafter everything was as smooth as anything.I started smiling at myself and her as well.

Old Lady(Looking at me surprisingly): I will give you only 70 and not 80 because you are not my friend, she was supposed to give me back 80 rupees.
Me: That's again your problem not mine.
Old Lady: You seemed to be pissed off because of me.
Me: I can't make you understand the things which I am not saying. I took the change, wished her a good day and moved away.
That lady started blabbering and was really pissed off, but I enjoyed it a lot. Had it been the old me, I would have been beaten the hell out of her, but I found myself and I enjoyed.I felt the energy flowing around me, I found everything levitating.

After that I went to the Welcome Center and asked the person behind the inquiry desk, the same question,"How do we register for the meditation courses?"

That guy was looking like a gay, in fact I can bet on it, he was a gay :)

Gay: What do you know about OSHO.Have you done any meditation before?Have you ever read OSHO literature.

This time my friend chose to speak and I volunteered to listen.I was constantly staring into his eyes, smiling and enjoying everything he was saying.

Lokesh: Not much, I have read very few books by him.
Gay: Which books?
Lokesh: I don't remember. I am not that much into books.
Gay: Then go first read some books by OSHO. Have an overview of what is it all about, then come back.
Me :Is it necessary?
Gay(Not looking at me): Yes because we are offering you university level meditation, it is not a primary school. You need to have an experience of the things being taught here. It is not possible that you come and sit with the other persons and disturb them. Go and read some books.
ME:I have been reading OSHO since my school days and I left my school five years back.
Gay (Looking at the computer screen in front of him):Which books?
Me:Everything. His biography as well.
Gay(He was caught):Have done meditation?
Me:No, but now you are saying something else, earlier you said books, now it is meditation then it will be something else.
Gay(Totally pissed off):Ya it is mandatory, we can't let you in like that
Me:I started smiling and moved away, wished him a good day.
As soon as I left the place I started laughing badly and loudly. To my amusement everything that happened had not bothered me. I was just flowing and I don't know what.

P.S:Part-2 will be posted tomorrow, there is still a lot more to happen :)
