Osho's words on the discipline of meditation.
Meditation is an adventure, the greatest adventure the human mind can undertake. Meditation is just to be, not doing anything--no action, no thought, no emotion. You just are and it is a sheer delight. From where does this delight come when you are not doing anything? It comes from nowhere, or it comes from everywher. It is uncaused, because existence is made of the stuff called joy!
Meditation is not an Indian method; it is not simply a technique. You cannot learn it. It is a growth: a growth of your total living, outo f your total living. Meditation is not something that can be added to you as you are. It cannot be added to you; it can only come to you through a basic transformation, a mutation. It is a flowering, a growth. Growth is always from the total' it is not an addition. Just like love, it cannot be added to you.
It grows out of you, out of your totality.
You must grow toward meditation.
