OSHO: With Meditation Your Intelligence Will Be Growing


silence shared in words presents With Meditation Your Intelligence Will Be Growing to the Last Breath of Your Life Do those cells needed for a lively and growing intelligence have only a limited life span, so that there is a point beyond which one either becomes senile or simply stagnates? Or, given the necessary stimulus, is it possible for intelligence to continue to grow right up to the moment of one’s death? The ordinary human being stops at age fourteen his growth of intelligence because the biological purpose is complete. At the age of fourteen, the person is mature enough to give birth, to reproduce. Biology is no longer interested beyond this point. This is the reason why the average human being is stuck at the age of fourteen as far as his mental age is concerned. People go on growing physically up to seventy, eighty, ninety, a hundred years in some places like Caucasia, up to one hundred and fifty, even one hundred and eighty. But their mental age remains stuck at fourteen. This has been the routine up to now. This can be changed. And this should be changed because there is infinite potential for growth, but the change will come only if you have some goals beyond biology. If your life remains concerned only with sex, children, family, food, house, then there is no need; that much intelligence is enough. But if your interest is that of an Albert Einstein then your intelligence starts moving sometimes even ahead of your physical body. Emerson is reported to have said — and rightly so when asked how old he was — he said, “Three hundred and sixty years.” The journalist who was asking “Three hundred and sixty? You don’t look more than sixty.” Emerson said, “That’s right. From one point of view, I am sixty years old. But I have done so much work as far as my intelligence is concerned that either six people would be needed to do it or I would need three hundred and sixty years. My intelligence is so far ahead of my physical body.” Intelligence depends on what you are doing with it. The person who is meditating has the greatest possibility of reaching the highest peaks of intelligence, because in meditation he is doing the greatest possible work that a man is capable of, and that is realizing oneself, knowing: “Who am I.” Entering into the deepest interiority of one’s subjectivity is the greatest work for intelligence. Then you cannot even count; you cannot count Gautam Buddha’s intelligence, it is beyond calculations, beyond measurements. And if you are a meditator, as your meditation goes on becoming more and more luminous, your intelligence will be growing to the last breath of your life. Not only that, even after the last breath your intelligence will continue to grow — because you are not going to die, only your body will be dying. And the body has nothing to do with intelligence; the mind has nothing to do with intelligence. Intelligence is the quality of your awareness — more aware, more intelligent. And if you are totally aware, you are as intelligent as this whole existence is.

    An insightful video as to how our intelligence stops at a certain age and as we adults behave so naive to many aspects of life. A relationship with body and intelligence. The essence of meditation to our intellectual personality. Thank you osho.

    We are all intelligent people, we don't all realize 'it'. And indeed, most spirituality can't be explained with words or concepts, but can only be conscious felt

    everyone sleeps and yet they remain how they are, not how they wish to be. meditating while awake is a whole different experience than sleeping. there is no one specific way to meditate, you don't have to sit in the lotus, you don't have to close your eyes, you can just sit, or stand, or lie down, and stare, at nothing, you can get so absorbed that you no longer see. the image in front of you will not be able to reach the brain to be recognized.

    I hope I'm getting some other kind of benefit from his talking so slowly, because he could have said as much verbally in half the time.

    Osho and Jesse Ventura for President! Even if he is not a citizen. This man's words grab you by the nuts and slowly squeeze. Right as you are about to pass out, he lets go. Bless this man

    Just close your eyes and see that you remain awake! Practice to remain so for just a minute without a break… and you have grown a 100 years. That's a glimpse of meditation.

    In one of his books he said you shouldn't believe anyone, anything but you, and your existence. It's the most important thing. Even here in this video. Let's try it! It's good to sit and listen. How about create, make, try something of he said.

    i used to be kinda suspicious about him because of the controversy. But I'm starting ti understand his philosophy and why these controversies happened. Im sure that i cannot completely understand him becase like he said his prespective comes from the peak and mine comes from the valley.

    The most famous geniuses have mediated and the most famous CEO's of major corps have even visited India to find the true self. This is why they never care about earning more money to them its about reaching the highest peaks of ones self and the money follows.

    Powerful message. Your ability is based on your awareness. Too simple to be taught to the educated fool.

    If you are addictive to food- YOU ARE LIVING LIKE A 7 YEARS OLD
    If you are addictive to Sex- YOU ARE LIVING LIKE A 14 YEARS
    Intelligence= 21 years old(Use Intelligence to earn money and enjoy life)
    ALL INTELLIGENCE(Spiritual, Emotional, Philosophical etc)= Beyond 21 years(These peoples are familier with everyone weather it is 1 year old or 100 year. they can solve any problem. They can do whatever they wish success touches their feets. A time comes when they become enlightened like OSHO or Buddha)

    So to him intelligence is awareness? What about imagination? Specifically the ability to imagine creations out of the material world and manifesting those creations into inventions? Which is essentially what westerners have been famous for in the last 500 years. Never have I heard a western inventor talk of meditation giving them intelligence. Only concentration, visualization, and a innate talent, which neither is meditation.
