THE DOOR TO CONSCIOUSNESS
BODY MIND BALANCING
THE HARMONY OF BODY, MIND, AND SOUL
Your body is energy, your mind is energy,
your soul is energy.
Then what is the difference among these three? The difference is
only of a different rhythm, different
wavelengths, that's all. The
body is gross--energy functioning in a gross way, in a visible way.
Mind is a little more subtle, but still not too subtle, because
you can close your eyes and you can see the thoughts moving;
can be seen. They are not as visible as your body; your body
is visible to everybody else, it is publicly visible. Your
are privately visible. Nobody else can see your thoughts; only
you can see them--or people who have worked
very deeply into
seeing thoughts. But ordinarily they are not visible to others.
And the third, the
ultimate layer inside you, is that of con-
sciousness. It is not even visible to you. It cannot be reduced into
it remains subject.
If all these three energies function in harmony, you are
healthy and whole. If
these energies don't function in harmony
and accord, you are ill, unhealthy; you are no more whole. And
to be whole
is to be holy.
My effort is to help you so that your body, your mind, your
all dance in one rhythm, in a togetherness, in a
deep harmony--not in conflict at all, but in cooperation.
Consciousness is energy, purest energy; mind is not so pure;
body is still less pure. Body is much too mixed, and mind
not totally pure. Consciousness is total pure energy. But you can
know this consciousness only if you make a
cosmos out of the
three, and not a chaos. People are living in chaos: their bodies say
one thing, their
bodies want to go in one direction; their minds
are completely oblivious of the body--because for centuries you
been taught that you are not the body, for centuries you have
been told that the body is your enemy, that you have
to fight with
it, that you have to destroy it, that the body is sin.
Because of all these
ideas--silly and stupid as they are,
harmful and poisonous as they are, but they have been taught for
long that they have become part of your collective mind, they
are there--you don't experience your body in a rhythmic
Hence my insistence on dancing and music, because it is only
dance that you will feel that your body, your mind, and you are
functioning together. And the joy is infinite when
all these func-
tion together; the richness is great.
Consciousness is the highest form
of energy. And when all
these three energies function together, the fourth arrives. The
fourth is always
present when these three function together.
When these three function in an organic unity, the fourth is al-
there; the fourth is nothing but that organic unity.
In the East, we have called that fourth simply
"the fourth" --
turiya; we have not given it any name. The three have names, the
fourth is nameless. To
know the fourth is to know God. Let us say
it in this way: God is when you are an organic orgasmic unity. God
not when you are a chaos, a disunity, a conflict. When you are a
house divided against yourself there is no God.
When you are tremendously happy with yourself, happy as
you are, blissful as you are, grateful as you are, and all your
gies are dancing together, when you are an orchestra of all your
energies, God is. That feeling of total unity
is what God is. God
is not a person somewhere, God is the experience of the three
falling in such unity that the fourth
arises. And the fourth is more
than the sum total of the parts.
If you dissect a painting, you will
find the canvas and the col-
ors, but the painting is not simply the sum total of the canvas
and the colors; it is something
more. That "something more" is
expressed through the painting, color, canvas, the artist, but that
is the beauty. Dissect the rose flower, and you
will find all the chemicals and things it is constituted of, but the
will disappear. It was not just the sum total of the parts;
it was more.
The whole is more than the
sum total of the parts; it expresses
through the parts, but it is more. To understand that it is more is to
God. God is that more, that plus. It is not a question of
theology; it cannot be decided by logical argumentation. You
to feel beauty, you have to feel music, you have to feel dance. And
ultimately you have to feel the dance in your
body, mind, and soul.
You have to learn how to play on these three energies so that
they all become
an orchestra. Then God is--not that you see
God, there is nothing to be seen; God is the ultimate seer, it is
Learn to melt your body, mind, soul; find out ways
when you can function as a unity.
Meditate - running can be a meditation - jogging,
anything can be a meditation. My definition of meditation is:
whenever your body, mind, soul are
functioning together in
rhythm it is meditation, because it will bring the fourth in. And if you
are alert that you
are doing it as a meditation -- not to take part in the
Olympics, but doing it as a meditation -- then it is tremendously
But the basic fundamental is, whatever the meditation, it has to fill
this requirement: that the
body, mind, consciousness, all three
should function in unity. Then suddenly one day the fourth has
arrived: the witnessing.
Or if you want to, call it God; call it
God or nirvana or Tao or whatever you will.
