Meditation is not a solution of any problem in particular; it solves nothing. It simply helps you to get rid of the mind, the problem-creator. It simply helps you to slip out of the mind like a snake slips out of the old skin. Once you know you are not the mind the great transcendence has happened. Suddenly all problems become insignificant; slowly, slowly they evaporate. You are left with a profound peace; a great silence prevails.  This silence is the solution. This peace is the answer, the answer of all answers.  Osho

This is a very clear definition what meditation is. When one slips ous of the “old skin”, the old belief systems of the mind, one is reborn so to speak and the “peace” is not something static but rather something truly ec-static…

And this is a special meditation from Osho: Melting Patterns

Step 1: Boiling Mad!

Close your room, set your alarm for 15 minutes later. Become angry; get heated up, as if to 100 degrees. Bring it to a climax but don’t release it. Go on forcing it — go almost crazy with anger — but don’t release it. No expression…not even a pillow to hit. Repress it in every way — just the opposite of catharsis.

If you feel tension rising in the stomach as if something is going to explode, pull the stomach in; make it as tense as you can. If you feel the shoulders are becoming tense, make them more tense. Let the whole body be as tense as possible, almost as if on a volcano — boiling within and no release. That is the point to remember — no release. Don’t scream, otherwise the stomach will relax. Don’t hit anything, otherwise the shoulders will be released of tension.

Step 2: Then Just Watch…

When the alarm goes off, sit silently, close your eyes and just watch what is happening. Relax the body. This heating of the system will force your patterns to melt….”
