….have a lot in common but are separate occurances that continue to grab me by the hook. Years ago…back in my days in India when I first arrived at Shree Rajneesh Ashram…I heard Bhagwan say: "Be Still and Know"….that pretty much sums up all the teaching that is needed. I hung around that rascal for 12 or so years before he died…eating and drinking from his most profound menu. Two days ago, this journalist from the US asked me what it was like to be with a teacher where most of the reading public viewed his community as rather oddly tied to a possible faux teacher with 94 Rolls Royces. The situation of the Master/Disciple relationship that those of us that were with Bhagwan had become a story in the tabloids and periodicals of the day…a lot of it was true and there was an equal amount of false speculation. There was a story….. The journalist's question the other day touched a spark in me. I found myself telling him that I did not need to defend Bhagwan's actions and that explaining the relationship that I had with my teacher was almost impossible to grok by a Western Mind Set…Upon reflecting…I have realized that just relaxing into situations from the past and not riding some bronco of a story gives room for a quiet spaciousness and a presence that is just this…again…just this…all of this…nothing more…nothing less…this……….(smile)…Be Still and Know….
