All our senses are corrupted. We only see what we want to see. You don’t look at people eye to eye - or, if you do look at them, it is only for a few seconds. You don’t look at people really; you go on avoiding. If you look, it is thought to be offensive. Just be aware: Do you really see people, or do you go on avoiding their eyes?— because if you don’t avoid them, then you may be able to see a few things that the person is not willing to show. It is not good manners to see something that he is not willing to show, so it is better to avoid... People don’t touch each other, they don’t hold hands, they don’t hug each other. And when you hold somebody’s hand, you feel embarrassed, he feels embarrassed. Even if you hug somebody, it feels as if something wrong is happening, and you are in a hurry to get away from the others body. Because the others body can open you — the warmth of the others body can open you...
All our senses are corrupted by society. We have not been allowed to be natural. Because of this layer of corrupted senses, everything has to pass this filter first. And this filter destroys, interprets, manipulates, projects, invents.. That is the whole effort of yoga: to make your body alive, sensitive, young again, to give your senses their maximum functioning. Then one functions with no taboos around; then lucidity, grace, beauty, flow. Warmth arises again, openness, and growth happens. The body is alive. Joy surrounds you. 🖤 Loosely cited from Osho’s Intuition
