OSHO To Change Your Thought Patterns

When: Whenever you feel any judgment, or whatever else the pattern might be — jealousy or greed, etc.

Step 1: Change the Breathing
Immediately you will see a change: the thought will disappear. Whenever you want to change a pattern of the mind that has become a long-standing habit, breathing is the best thing.

All habits of the mind are associated with the pattern of breathing. Change the pattern of breathing and the mind changes instantly.

Exhale deeply, pulling your stomach in, and as you throw out the air visualize that the pattern is being thrown out.

Step 2: Now Take in Fresh Air Deeply…
…two or three times — and just see what happens. You will feel a complete freshness; the old habit will not have been able to take possession of you.

So start with exhalation when you want to throw something out and inhale when you want to take something in.

Simply do this and immediately you will see that the mind has moved somewhere else; a new breeze has come. You are not in the old groove, so you will not repeat the old habit.

And this is true for all habits. For example, if you smoke, let the urge out. Have a fresh breath in and you will see immediately that the urge has gone. This can become a very, very important tool for inner change. Just try it!
