Meditation is Not for You (You Can Go Crazy, Seriously)

Osho Sanyyasis at Osho Dham, Najafgarh

I am sick and tired.

Sick and tired of the advice, the so-called Meditation Gurus keep shoving in the faces of innocent people like you. They keep on repeating like well-trained parrots that meditation is a magical remedy for insomnia, depression, anxiety, or whatever it is that you’re going through.

I can suck it up, but things really go out of hand when:

They claim that meditation is for everyone.

Their shamelessness boils my blood…

(Arrgggh… how dare they?)

Can Meditation Give You Peace of Mind?

It depends.

Suicide? Sorry, Killing Your Body Doesn’t Kill You

Planning to end your life: A haunted forest

I know why you want to end your life.

I get it.

You don’t have a job, nobody loves you, and your future looks like a haunted forest with no exit in sight.

Your life sucks!

And so, suicide seems the only viable option. It’d set you free, right?

The sting of unemployment piercing deep in your chest, the void of a loving partner sucking you inside a black hole, the hopelessness taking over your mind—everything will stop. The dust will settle down once and for all. No more hungry stomach. No more teary eyes. No more dying inch by inch. Farewell, cruel world.

Pretty neat, huh?

But.

What if you’re wrong? What if suicide is not the answer? What if killing your body does not kill you?

Make sense?

No?

It will if you stay with me until the end of this article. Ready? Let’s begin.

What Goes Around Comes Around

What goes around, comes around.

It’s a fact one must realise early in life, especially when you’re still young because the habits formed in youth are generally permanent.

Be careful about the kind of habits you form and how you see the world.

Some people tend to take the world for granted. They believe nothing wrong can happen to them even if they do loads of wrong to others. But the truth is, what goes around, comes around. You get what you give. Whatsoever a man sow, that shall he also reap.

Unfortunately, nobody told me this truth when I was a kid.

What Is Personality Development?

What is personality development?

It’s a question many people interested in personality development ask and yet, only a few get lucky enough to find the right answer.

Personality development, also known as personal development is a word people use as per their convenience.

The (so-called) life-skills-training and personality development companies want you to believe that it is about different skills and how to sharpen them.

For example:

  • Analytical skills
  • Reasoning skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Communication skills, and so on.

And by communication skills, they mean how fluent you are in English. (As if the people who don’t speak English cannot be good communicators).

Such training and placement companies want you to believe that it’s also about:

  • Group discussions
  • Resolving conflicts between two parties
  • Role-plays
  • Facing interviews (what type of underwear gels with what kind of trousers)
  • Getting a job

And that’s it.

That’s personality development for them.
