A very simple method but it works miraculously—try it. And anyone can try it, there is no danger. In an easy position: the first thing is to be in a relaxed position—easy, whatsoever is easy for you. So don’t try some particular position or asana. Buddha sits in a particular posture. It is easy for him. It can also become easy for you if you practice it for a time, but in the very beginning it will not be easy for you. And there is no need to practice it: start from any posture that comes easy to you right now. Don’t struggle with posture. You can sit in an easy chair and relax. The only thing is your body must be in a relaxed state. Just close your eyes and feel all over the body. Start from the legs feeling whether there is some tension. If you feel somewhere there is some tension, do one thing: make it more tense. If you feel that in the leg, in the right leg, there is tension, then make that tension as intense as possible. Bring it to a peak and then suddenly relax so that you can feel how relaxation settles there. Then go all over the body just finding if there is some tension somewhere. Wherever you feel the tension make it more, because it is easy to relax it when it is intense. In just a mid-state it is very difficult because you cannot feel it. It is easy to move from one extreme to another, very easy, because the very extreme creates the situation to move to the other. So if you feel some tension in the face then strain all the face muscles as much as possible, create tension and bring it to a peak. Bring it to a point where you feel that now no more is possible—then suddenly relax. So see that all parts of the body, all the limbs, are relaxed. Be particular about the face muscles, because they carry ninety per cent of the tensions—the rest of the body carries only ten per cent—because all your tensions are in the mind and the face becomes the storage. So strain your face as much as possible, don’t be shy about it. Intensely make it in anguish, anxiety and then suddenly relax. Do it for five minutes so you can feel now the whole body, every limb, is relaxed. You can do it lying on the bed, you can do it sitting also—however you feel is easy for you. The second thing: when you feel that the body has come to an easy posture, don’t make much fuss about it. Just feel that the body is relaxed, then forget the body. Because really, remembering the body is a sort of tension. So that’s why I say don’t make much fuss about it. Relax it and forget it. Forgetting is relaxation, because whenever you remember too much, that very remembering brings a tension to the body. Then close your eyes and just feel the area between the two armpits: the heart area, your chest. First feel it, just between the two armpits, bring your total attention, total awareness. Forget the whole body, just the heart area between the two armpits, your chest, and feel it filled with great peace. The moment the body is relaxed, automatically peace happens in your heart. The heart becomes silent, relaxed, harmonious. And when you forget the whole body and bring your attention just to the chest and consciously feel that it is filled with peace, much peace will happen immediately. There are two areas in the body, particular centers where particular feelings can be created consciously. Between the two armpits is the center of the heart, and the heart center is the source of all peace that happens to you, whenever it happens. Whenever you are peaceful, the peace is coming from the heart. The heart radiates peace. That’s why people from all over the world, without any distinction of caste, religion, country, cultured or uncultured, every race, have felt this: that love arises somewhere from the heart. No scientific explanation exists. So whenever you think of love you think of the heart. Really, whenever you are in love you are relaxed, and because you are relaxed you are filled with a certain peace. And that peace arises from the heart. So peace and love have become joined, associated. Whenever you are in love you are peaceful; whenever you are not in love you are disturbed. Because of peace the heart has become associated with love. So you can do two things. Either you can search for love, then sometimes you will feel peace. But the path is dangerous, because the other person whom you love has become more important than you. The other is the other, and you are becoming dependent in a way. So love will give you peace sometimes but not always. There will be many disturbances, many moments of anguish and anxiety, because the other has entered and whenever the other enters there is bound to be some disturbance because you can meet with the other only on your surface, and the surface will be disturbed. Only sometimes—when the two of you will be so deeply in love with no conflict—only sometimes you will be relaxed and the heart will glow with peace.
