For the tragic victims of the terrorist attacks in the United States, Osho World organized a special meditation session in New Delhi on Friday 14 September 2001 coinciding with the prayers in different parts of the globe. One of Osho's meditations was conducted to feel oneness with the victims and their families and friends, and for all of us who are conscious observers of these tragic actions.
The world has changed since the terrorist attacks in the United States on Tuesday and this is an unfortunate sign of our times. The horrendous destruction of innocent lives and property is a travesty and the unbelievable effect so few have had upon so many is absolutely staggering.
Osho says, "A meditator cannot kill; a meditator cannot be destructive.War, violence, murder, massacre of millions of people -- this is not possible if a man knows something of meditation. Then he also knows not only himself, he knows the other whom he is killing. He is his brother. They all belong to the same oceanic existence."
In the horrendous aftermath of this attack, the entire world desperately needs the balm of meditation to bring peace for the departed souls, solace for their loved ones and speedy recovery for the injured. On a spiritual level, we are all connected and thus it is impossible to imagine that a few can wreck such destruction on so many.
Much healing needs to take place all around the world. This is a delicate time during which meditation can accomplish the most effective and powerful healing for all trauma stricken people and result in the greatest positive benefit.
Osho says, "Be more meditative, become more conscious of your being. Let your inner world become more silent, and love will be flowing through you. People have all these problems. The problems are different -- violence, jealousy -- but the medicine for all these illnesses is only one, and it is meditation.
"And I would like you to be reminded that the word medicine and the word meditation come from the same root. Medicine means something that can cure your body, and meditation means something that can cure your soul. Meditation is meditation only because it is a medicine for your innermost illnesses."
Osho World invites every concerned and conscious person to join in meditation at this time of great need to create a positive and powerful wave of Meditative Energy around the world to restore the balance.
