Osho Meditation Dictionary – Health



Health to Pythagoras, has two aspects to it. One is the physical, the other is the spiritual. The body is your temple — don't neglect it. Your foolish, stupid ascetics have been telling you to neglect it — not only to neglect but to destroy your body. Pythagoras is not an ascetic: he is a man of understanding.

He says: Respect, don't neglect, your body. If your body is neglected, you will not be able to find the inner harmony — because if the body is harmonious it helps to attain to inner harmony. Take every care of your health, of your body; love it, respect it, it is a great gift. It is a miracle! a mystery.

Excerpted from ‘Philosophia Perennis’, Vol. II by Osho

This is the definition of health: that if body is not felt you are healthy, if body is felt you are unhealthy — because only pain is felt. Whenever there is some pain, you feel it. Pain is needed to feel the body and pain is needed to feel yourself. And that pain creates the "I", that suffering, anguish, anxiety, creates the "I".

So if you are egoistic, remember that this shows that your inner harmony is lost. You cannot do anything about the ego directly — unless you regain the inner harmony. If you start doing something for the ego directly, nothing will happen.

On the contrary, you may get more disturbed. All the religions say: Be egoless. They mean: Be harmonious. Their insistence to dissolve the ego is the insistence to dissolve the disturbance — become a rhythm, become an inner silence. They insist for health.

The Sanskrit word for health is very beautiful: the word is swastha — it means to be in one's self. When you are in your self, there is no ego. The English word "health" also is beautiful from a different viewpoint. It comes from the same root as the word "whole" comes from — "wholeness".

When you are whole, you are healthy. When you are fragmented, divided, split, you are unhealthy. When you have a feeling of wholeness — no division, undivided, one — you are healthy. When you are fragmented, divided, split, you are unhealthy. When you have a feeling of wholeness — no division, undivided, one — you are healthy. The word "holy" also comes from "whole". When you are really whole, you are holy, you are pure, innocent.

Excerpted from ‘The Supreme Doctrine’ by Osho

Health is not only a physical phenomenon, that is only one of its dimensions, and one of the most superficial dimensions, because basically the body is going to die — healthy or unhealthy, it is momentary. Real health has to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no birth, no death. It is eternal.

And to be healthy in consciousness means: first, to be awake; second, to be harmonious; third, to be ecstatic; and fourth, to be compassionate. If these four things are fulfilled, one is inwardly healthy. And sannyas can fulfill all these four things. It can make you more aware, because all the meditation techniques are methods to make you more aware, devices to pull you out of your metaphysical sleep. And dancing, singing, rejoicing, can make you more harmonious.

There is a moment when the dancer disappears and only the dance remains. In that rare space one feels harmony. When the singer is completely forgotten and only the song remains, when there is no center functioning and only the song remains, when there is no center functioning as "I" — the "I" is absolutely absent — and you are in a flow, that flowing consciousness is harmonious.

And to be awake and harmonious creates the possibility for ecstasy to happen. Ecstasy means the ultimate joy, inexpressible; no words are adequate to say anything about it. And when one has attained to ecstasy, when one has known the ultimate peak of joy, compassion comes as a consequence.

When you have that joy, you like to share it; you cannot avoid sharing, sharing is inevitable. It is a logical consequence of having. It starts overflowing; you need not do anything. It starts happening of its own accord. These four are the four pillars of inner health. Attain to it. It is our birthright, we just have to claim it.
