[fill-in here] –> Osho -> Eastern Orthodox mysticism -> Buddhism -> Biofeedback -> being a kid. [going backwards in time]
From less of an Thinkers point of view, I had some exposure to K via Osho, who had nothing but the greatest admiration and respect for K yet found him a little too ‘head’ oriented. Osho was a little more hedonistic – a party animal compared to K, yet their teachings share much.
[I had a strong fling with a stream of Osho readings years ago which brought me back to a “woah dude” state after a few years of Eastern Orthodox Christian mystical stuff (which had its own “woah” with less of the “dude”…. prior to that some Buddhist-y stuff… before that was some biofeedback thing my mother took me to when I was 11 years old to control my inconsolable states – learning to “breath through my feet” and such.
All worked quite well.
Yet, I still smoke cigarettes – a 7 minute meditation, a marginally socially acceptable way to get away from people for a few minutes… and all the positive benefits of nicotene upon the brain… with the unfortunate side effects of health which could lead to an accelerated and nastier demise… or not – depending upon my genetic tendencies.
Ah well. Perfection only works on paper.
