OSHO No-Mind is a powerful Meditative Therapy consisting of an hour of gibberish followed by an hour of sitting silently.
What is gibberish?
Gibberish is simply speaking in nonsense words, as Osho explains, “using any language that you don’t know.”
WHY IS THIS COURSE VALUABLE?
All tension is based on inner conflict. And all inner conflict is based on a misunderstanding between the conscious and the unconscious mind. Resolving this misunderstanding is the doorway to relaxation.
The Conscious Mind Misunderstands the Origin of The Repressed Emotions
Someone insults you. You become angry and perhaps damage them and/or yourself. Or you become sad and only damage yourself. The reality is different. The anger is sitting there waiting for a chance to be expressed and the insult provided the trigger by touching an old wound. Then the mind jumps in and puts subtitles on the anger movie: “You are rightly angry – because you have been insulted.”
The mind always needs to explain everything. In fact, neither you, nor the mind, know the real source of that anger.
The source of the anger lies elsewhere. But because you are distracted by the mind’s certainty that the anger is the result of today’s insult, you never get to experience the original anger. So, it is never resolved and keeps recurring.
How exactly does gibberish help?
The genius of gibberish is that it has all the qualities of a language, except meaning! Now, when you express that anger, there is nothing meaningful from the mind to convince you that the cause of your anger is today’s insult. Yes, you may scream and shout, but now the subtitles on that emotional movie tell you nothing.
Expressing the original emotional energy – without the conscious mind’s interference
You allow the expression of that anger – but now with the nonsense words of your gibberish language. Instead of being distracted by analyzing today’s insult, you just let rip at the sky. There are no real “words” trying to explain anything. Just raw emotions – no commentary, no explanation, no rationalization. Nothing! Just “a passionate dialog” – unaddressed.
Now the magic can happen
The emotional energy of that past trauma is accessed directly – and expressed. And so, dissolved. Now that same phenomenon can never recur.
After one hour of gibberish, you simply relax, do nothing, and discover that silence descends on its own.
So, What Precisely Is No-Mind?
You have legs and are walking. Then you stop. You still have legs, but where has the walking gone? In meditation, where have the thoughts gone? You still have the mind, but it is silent – that is No-Mind! Which Osho describes as “such a great revolution in your life that it has no parallel.”
“I am dealing with the contemporary man, who is the most restless being that has ever evolved on the earth. But people do become silent; you just have to allow them to throw out their madness, insanity, then they themselves become silent.” Osho
