Jump for your life!
I was so happy to have come across a couple of recent articles talking about the great benefits of jumping. In fact, even Tony Robbins, the most famous motivational leader in the world, uses jumping before going on stage, and recommends the use of a trampoline for general health and happiness.
Well if you are familiar with us at Love Osho, you know already where I am heading. Dynamic Meditation designed by Osho, involves 10 minutes of continuous jumping on the spot. Personally, it is my favourite part of the meditation, and never fails to surprise me. I have always wondered how this miraculous jumping defies the law of gravity.
But why jumping is so good for you? Mounting research suggests that sitting is a risk factor for poor health and premature death. A modern say goes like this: “sitting is the new smoking”. One powerful way to counteract the negative effects of prolonged sitting is jumping. Scientific research shows that jumping is as good as running and less stressful on your joints. It appears that jumping provides better fitness benefits than running in terms of oxygen uptake, cardiovascular health, core strengthening, bone mineral density, mental health (more oxygen-rich blood flow in your brain), mitochondrial biogenesis, lymphatic circulation, and immune system.
So to all those of you who have doubts about jumping: it is healthy and good for you, just JUMP!
In addition, the mucopolysaccharride molecule within the extra cellular matrix or fascia becomes polarised when it is pressured or bent. The polarisation of the molecule generates an electric charge called piezoelectricity. Studies on Masai Warriors and Whirling Dervish have found an increased level of piezoelectricity in their bodies. I bet that Dynamic Meditators would score top of the rank in terms of piezoelectricity.
Furthermore, the jumping in Dynamic needs to be done with raised arms and whilst shouting the mantra “hoo”. This is a very powerful sounds which hits your core energy centre. The aim of the jumping is to awaken your dormant life force. The coordinated body movement, breathing and sound hammers that very centre to provoke your life energy to move upwards, and challenge the law of gravity. Osho says that without energy there is no chance for meditation. Only at the peak of our energy we can jump out of the mind and experience meditation. This is what Dynamic Meditation is designed to do.
From now on, do not be afraid of jumping and do not listen to your mind: modern science confirms that jumping is good for health and for generating bio-electricity, meaning raising your energy level. In the worst case scenario, Dynamic Meditation is a wonderful workout, which will benefit your overall health. In the best case scenario, Dynamic Meditation will lead you to enlightenment. Somewhere in the middle of this vast spectrum of possibilities, with Dynamic Meditation you have a chance to hit your energy centre and experience something from the beyond. You may find yourself jumping despite you, as if an opposite law of gravity is pulling you upwards. And your all energy field will be recharged and revitalised.
Have a break from your sitting position, jump and raise your energy level. Not only it improves your general health but you may bump into meditation without trying to meditate. This is the magic of Osho Dynamic Meditation. Are you still sitting or are you ready to jump? If you want to jump together come and JOIN US.
