Conditioning is given to us by parents, family, teachers, and society – it is learned behavior. It fuels all that is false about us by maintaining the personality – a mask. This in turn disconnects us from our individuality, that place where we feel at home and connected.
“All personality is false. Good personality, bad personality, the personality of a sinner and the personality of a saint – all are false. You can wear a beautiful mask or an ugly mask, it doesn’t make any difference. The real thing is your essence.” Osho
This process works through the layers of our personality which manifest as self-destructive behavior, addictions, and co-dependency issues.
We use different techniques, to re-connect with the healthy child within us – to set it free from the “hypnosis” of the past. And we will experience how meditation allows us to acknowledge our wounds while we remain in a space that is essentially untouched by them.
“Whatever is repressed will have to be witnessed; whatever is buried inside will have to be faced. Wherever we have made ourselves blind, we will have to create eyes. We will have to undo the things we were taught to do as children and redo them in a totally different manner. We will have to return to that point in our childhood at which our energy was stolen. This is why all religiousness is nothing but the reclaiming of childhood.” Osho
Meditation on a daily basis will embed this new freedom into our daily lives allowing us to maintain a healthier more fulfilled life – living the truth of who we are each moment.
