THEN SIT SILENTLY . THEN RELAXATION HAPPENS EASILY… 
( with a Summary of Osho ‘s meditations updated Dec. 2015)

People come to me and they want to become silent, they want to move into a state of thoughtlessness.

I tell them to do hard work, cathartic meditations –dynamic, kundalini… jump, move, shake….

“ Life exists in contradictions.
If somebody comes to me and says that he has trouble with sleep, I say to forget about sleep.
Run four miles in the morning and four miles in the evening.
Sleep is not the problem.
You must be relaxing too much; then sleep is not needed.
Always remember that deeper down all contradictions meet and are part of one whole.
People come to me and they want to become silent, they want to move into a state of thoughtlessness.
I tell them to do hard work, cathartic meditations –dynamic, kundalini… jump, move, shake.
They say, ’But we want to be silent. Can’t we just sit and be silent just like Buddha?’
You can sit, but you will not be silent; inside, all turmoil will go fast.
Rather, do the opposite jump, run, jog, dance.
Exert yourself, exhaust yourself, and after that the pendulum starts moving to the opposite end.
Silence is possible only if you are exhausted.
Then sit silently.
Then relaxation happens easily… “
