Open Door Meditation Revisited

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

The inspiration for our current project came from the Osho Open Door Meditation, which was posted sometime last month as part of The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire. This meditation had a very powerful effect on me, and I'm thinking that it can serve as a cornerstone or foundation for what we are working to accomplish right now.

Here is a modified version of the Open Door Meditation. This is what works best for me, and you all are certainly encouraged to take a look at the original post (here) and figure out what works best for you.


Every night before you go to sleep, curl yourself into a tight little ball. Totally close yourself in. Close your eyes, your mouth, your ears, close your heart, your hands, your mind. Everything will begin to feel very dark and close. Your body will become tense and stiff. Maybe you will begin to have uncomfortable feelings of loss and loneliness.

When feel that you couldn't get any more closed up, when you begin to feel anxious, when you just can't stand it any more, slowly begin to open up. Uncurl your body, open your hands, open your heart, your mind, your hands... breathe... open yourself like a flower to the sunshine. Relax...relax the whole body and the whole feeling. Expand. Feel that you are filling the whole room. Feel that your energy is streaming out of the door, out the windows, into every nook and cranny of your home, expanding out into your yard or garden, out into your neighborhood. Let the energy go out and out. And as that energy flows onward and out ward, notice how it enfolds everything that is encountered. Notice how "out there" is now made welcome "in here".

Imagine that you are pulling the whole wide world into your heart in one large hug, one welcoming smile... Now, go to sleep.

I find it really difficult to stay in the closed up mode for very long. Interestingly, it gives me really bad heartburn. I wonder if the heartburn is an indication of closedness... hmmm...

Also, when I am tired, I find it much harder to be open and be allowing of the flow of energy.

I think I'm going to try doing this in the mornings instead. Like right after my alarm goes off.
