Riding the Big Wave

The recent Way of the Heart tour of Taiwan and Japan was an energy phenomenon that became so obvious that when Okinawa’s event finished everyone was talking about The Big Wave. Several things were responsible for this. The meditation training in I-Lan, northeast Taiwan, where the combination of tranquil venue and sincere group of participants sparked an inner momentum from which the tsunami began to grow. Secondly, a particular Osho’s discourse, The Invitation #23, which was shown at many of the events. Question number three from this discourse has to be the clearest, most comprehensive explanation of the spiritual search I have ever heard. Osho’s answer to a seeker’s question: “Please say something about the disciple’s courage and aloneness” is a pearl among pearls. I was fortunate to have had the text translated into Japanese courtesy of Atmarama, proof-read by Anupa of Osho Japan, and helped along technically by Pragyana and Deepyaman. As the wave grew stronger with each passing event, the poet Walt Whitman’s famous phrase “I celebrate myself” became a collective reality touching every heart in its path.
