Put aside the man's flaws and just listen to the raw message.
This is something that hit me quite hard a few years back. Not this specific talk by Steve Jobs, but a similar message. It's that no one has a clue about what is happening. The world just seems to be anyone's game. And when you become aware of that, you can play it to your rules. It's very hard to do that if you view it as what they tell it to be; and by "they" I mean politicians, cultures, religions, societies and so forth. However, it doesn't stop there. The world goes as far as humans want it to go, but when we speak of nature, love, the universe - my god it's like a dream. Do you see where I'm going with this? The world is like an illustration of humankind's ambitions, achievements, failures, made visible by conscious recollection, and you can artistically paint upon that canvas whatever your heart desires. That is the message here. But when we divert our attention to love, nature, and the known universe - that is something else. Every time I go there I lose words but I have so much to say. I guess, your life is like a shadow of these three phenomenons and many more that captures the shape of a figure that is limitless in creativity. And if you are a part of the shadow, you are the figure. Your existence is that. A shadow to the universe that gives an explicit image from the light of the complex creativity flooding the cosmos.

Meditation comes to you... It always comes; you cannot bring it.
But one has to be in search of it,
because only when you are in search
will you be open to it, vulnerable to it.
You are a host to it. Meditation is a guest.
You can invite it and wait for it...!
It comes to Buddha, it comes to Jesus,
it comes to everybody who is ready,
who is open and seeking... But do not learn it from somewhere;
otherwise you will be tricked.. The mind is always searching for something easier.
This becomes the source for exploitation.
Then there are gurus and gurudoms,
and spiritual life is poisoned.. The most dangerous person is the one who
exploits someone’s spiritual urge...! If someone robs you of your wealth it is not so serious,
if someone fails you it is not so serious,
but if someone tricks you and kills, or even postpones,
your urge toward meditation, toward the divine, toward ecstasy,
then the sin is great and unforgivable...! But that is being done.
So be aware of it, and don’t ask anybody, ”What is meditation? How do I meditate?” Instead, ask what the hindrances are, what the obstacles are.
Ask why we aren’t always in meditation,
where the growth has been stopped,
where we have been crippled... And do not seek a guru because gurus are crippling.
Anyone who gives you ready-made formulas
is not a friend but an enemy...
Grope in the dark... Nothing else can be done!
The very groping will become the understanding
that will liberate you from darkness.
Jesus said: ”Truth is freedom.” Understand this freedom.
Truth is always through understanding.
It is not something that you meet and encounter;
it is something you grow into... So be in search of understanding,
because the more understanding you become,
the nearer you will be to truth... And in some unknown, expected, unpredictable moment,
when understanding comes to a peak, you are in the abyss.
You are no more, and meditation is.
When you are no more.....,
you are in meditation! -🌹Osho🌹-
