This is why Jesus and Mohammad denied rebirth. The concept of rebirth made people lazy and thrown responsibility of living better to next life.

Osho’s message is to live every moment totally joyfully celebrating and dancing because there is no guarantee that you will be able to live next moment too. It means that if you really wish to live this life fully enough then you have to keep your focus on present moment you are living now, and here.

Even to postpone it to next moment is crime and against your ultimate inner growth!

This is why he says that even living one moment is enough, if it is lived fully in ‘here now’. In one of such moment our transformation is possible. And it happens for sure in one moment itself.

So what is the need to postpone it to even later part of life when you can live it now and here? Because the opportunity is equally present in every moment.

So when we are celebrating, enjoying and dancing then Osho and all other saints/Mystics/Krishna/Jesus/Mohammad/Buddha/Nanak is with us for sure. Then only we can say that we are Aging gracefully.

We just need to keep living life to its fullest every moment. It is just like moving with the flow of life.

The moments you lived fully is your real wealth. The more the better in life.
Look at the children living in slum area or children of labour class people, they are living, dancing and enjoying life with what is available with them in that moment!

They never compare themselves with others!

So is the message of Jesus that you have to become childlike to be able to enter the kingdom of god ie inner Ramrajya.

There is no possibility of any Ramrajya in material works it is just an illusion portrayed as real in the past or in the future. The people projecting it are actually exploiting others through it.

By practising awareness meditation in any one act of our life actually we are developing this capacity to live in present moment or enjoying here and now.

My suggestions:-

Awareness Meditation is the way worked for me and I tried it first during brushing my teeth in the morning after trying 8–10 meditations over period of 15 years! So there is no need to reinvent the circle for you. May be you too find it suitable otherwise with Dynamic meditation and/or Kundalini in the evening it is suitable for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho for contemporary people that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

Hi ….. I write my comments from my personal experiences of aging gracefully by taking baby steps to grow in my inner journey, while living material life living in society, raising kids etc. This post may include teachings of Mystics around the world which from my personal experience I found worth following even today. For more have a look at my linktree website for getting regular updates through social media lor subscribe to YouTube channel or listen to the podcasts etc.

Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home, through Osho Meditation Day @€20.00 per person. You can learn Dynamic meditations from disciples of Osho. OIO rotate times through three timezones NY,Berlin and Mumbai.
