I tried this yesterday, inspired by an Osho lecture, letting go of the body and the mind and just letting everything stay completely still and being total in that. It was quite beautiful, very peaceful within with only hints of things that would arise and go. I completely lost track of time — I was lying down — and when I looked on the clock four hours had passed.
Even in your sleep you are still somewhat present in the body, you move when it’s too hot or cold, you turn in your dreams. To just let go of body and mind and withdraw was a really interesting experience, you seem to slow down and end up in a kind of space where the small sensations of the body are magnified, I felt some rushes and taps and streams.
“Let-go is the atmosphere in which witnessing flowers. They are almost two sides of the same experience — they are not different. One cannot allow let-go without witnessing, neither can one be a witness without being in a let-go.”
— Osho, The Golden Future, Chapter 18
