Relaxation is ultimate Joy and Ecstasy

You walk a certain pace, that has become habitual, automatic. Now try to walk slowly. Buddha use to say to his disciples, walk very slowly, and take each step very consciously.  If you take each step very consciously, you are bound to walk slowly. if you are running, hurrying, you will forget to do this. Hence buddha walk very slowly.

Relaxation certainly brings the greatest joy possible, the ultimate in ecstasy, acceptance. You will be full of bliss and rejoicing. Your life will have the quality of dance to it.

The whole of existence is dancing, except for man. The whole of existence proceeds in a vary relaxed way, there is movement but it is utterly relaxed. Trees are growing and birds are chirping and rivers are flowing and stars are moving: everything is happening in a very relaxed way. No hurry, no haste, no worry, and no waste. Except for man. Man has fallen victim to his mind.

Man can rise above Gods and fall below animals. Man has a great spectrum of possibilities. From the lowest to the highest, man is a ladder.

Start from the body and then go, slowly, slowly, deeper. And don't start anything else unless you have solved the first problem. IF you body is tensed, don't start with your mind. Wait. Work on the body first. Remember, small things are of immense help.

You walk a certain pace, that has become habitual, automatic. Now try to walk slowly. Buddha use to say to his disciples, walk very slowly, and take each step very consciously.  If you take each step very consciously, you are bound to walk slowly. if you are running, hurrying, you will forget to do this. Hence buddha walk very slowly.

just try waling very slowly and you will be surprised a new quality of awareness will start happening in your body. Eat slowly, and you will find that there is great relaxation. Do everything slowly..... change the old pattern, leave behind the old habits.

First the body has to become utterly relaxed, like that of a small child, only than can you start with the mind. move scientifically: first to the simplest, than the complex, finally the more complex. And only than can you relax  at the ultimate core.

Relaxation is one of the most complex phenomenon - very rich, multidimensional. All these things are part of it: Let go, trust , surrender, love, acceptance, going with the flow, union with existence, egolessness, ecstasy all these are part of it, and all these start happening if you learn the ways of relaxation.

The so called religious beliefs have made you very tense, because they have created guilt in you. Get rid of all guilt and all fear. There is no hell and there is no heaven, so don't be afraid of hell and don't be greedy for heaven. All that exists is this moment. You can make this moment a hell or a heaven - that certainly is possible - but there is no heaven or hell somewhere else. Hell is when you are all tense and heaven is when you are completely relaxed. Total relaxation is paradise.
