The Mystic Rose Twenty-One-Day Meditative Therapy
Week One: Laughter – Three hours per day for no reason at all
“My own experience says to me that if you can laugh rightly, in the right moment, it will bring you out of unconsciousness into the open sky. From the darkness to the light. I am introducing laughter as a meditation because nothing makes you so total as laughter. Nothing makes you stop your thinking as laughter does. Just for a moment you are no more a mind. Just for a moment you are no more in time. Just for a moment you enter into another space where you are total and whole and healed.”
Week Two: Tears – Releasing and healing. Three hours per day
“The only problem with sadness, desperateness, anger, hopelessness, anxiety, anguish, misery, is that you want to get rid of them. That’s the only barrier. You will have to live with them. You cannot just escape. So the first thing is, never repress. Whatsoever is the case is the case. Accept it and let it come in front of you. In fact to say ‘do not repress’ is not enough. If you allow me, I would say ‘befriend it’! Sadness goes to the very bones – to the marrow. Nothing goes as deep as sadness. Remain with it and it will take you to your innermost core.”
Week Three: The Watcher – Meditation three hours per day
“And my effort here is to take away all your scars and all your wounds and make you aware that you are just a watcher. A watcher cannot be wounded; no bullet can pass through it, no nuclear bomb can destroy it. Just be a witness. Go on witnessing whatsoever passes in the mind, and the very process of witnessing has the whole secret in it. Then you know that you are just the quality of reflection, that you are a pure consciousness, a witness, that you are a mirror and nothing else, that you are just a watcher, a watcher on the hill. That is freedom. That’s what is called liberation, nirvana. And that man knows what benediction is!”
