Discovery of My Voice

A couple of months ago, I read a sermon by Osho. He had talked about the original voice within you. According to him our job is to find our original voice and sing our song aloud. Our job is not to die with our music still inside us, for it will be a useless life then.

What he meant to say is as follows:

When we are born, we are most influenced by our parents, especially by our mother. So when we grow up, the voice of our mother remains with us and most of the time we speak our mother's voice. This voice leads us to feel the fear and the negative aspects of challenges the life throws at us. For example, when we enter in a new business, we do feel what if we fail in our attempt. That's mother's voice, which always intends to provide unconditional love and care. The next dominant voice is that of our father. This voice empowers us to accept a new challenge and overcome it, prove our mettle (for example, write that medical/engineering entrance exam). 

The next voice that influences a person is that of the teacher. It could be the most frightening teacher we have come across, or the most humble one. Don't we still remember the name of our teachers and tell our kids their stories. Next in line are friends' voices. 

Then we enter into action-packed life of work/business/job/adult life. Then several voices take over our small humble personality. We start even cracking jokes based on different professions, even joke books are published (refer to any joke book on computers). 

Then marriage happens. Another new voice takes over our personality. We start speaking in the voice of our husband or wife. The mother thinking that my son is under full control of his new wife is the commonest example of it. 

Then Osho says that our original voice, with which we were born, remains deep under the heap of so many voices that dominate our persona. Thus our job is to dig deep within ourselves, find our voice, our music, and sing aloud. Only with this intention so many people, including myself, take up the journey of self discovery, self realization.

  1. I think it is the explanation of osho's philosophy in our practical world. Is this really a topic with some conclusion, improvisation, any central idea which nobody understand or what?

A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  
Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 
Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  som…

Why people exercise

Exercise helps to keep body fit, flexible, toned-up and agile. A fit and agile body adds around five or more years to an average person’s life. If one exercises, all physiological systems like respiratory, nervous, skeleton, endocrine, blood circulation, etc., function perfectly well. A regular schedule of exercise keeps the metabolism in control, helps to burn extra calories, provides extra power when the body gets tired and thus works towards self-assurance and self-motivation. One hardly complains of stress and depression, which are two most common factors that cause various ailments and diseases, and lead to slow death, these days.
