“YOU ARE UNIQUE JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE”
Gee You Are you. As of right now, you no longer need to become anyone else. Or even a better you.
You are perfect just the way you are.
Krishna Prem has found the way to point out this essential truth that you are fine just the way you are, by using himself as the example. Krishna Prem left America over forty years ago in search of himself.
Arriving in India, he met his teacher and friend Osho, who simply said to Krishna Prem, “If you want to know who you really are, be a joke unto yourself. Do not take yourself so seriously.”
Laugh with Krishna Prem and at the same time you may just find out how funny you are. Your ego is certainly a serious business. Laughter is the best medicine to move from mind to meditation. And when you finally begin to laugh at yourself from deep in your belly, you may well become aware of what is known in the East as the great “Cosmic Joke”..
”Life is like an empty canvas, it becomes whatever you paint on it. You can paint misery, you can paint bliss. This freedom is your glory.” -- Osho
”Gee You Are You” is a book about life's journey from 'here to here.' On the front cover is a picture of me at 33 years of age, sitting on a cold marble floor in front of my teacher and friend, Osho, in Pune, India.
On the back cover I am the ripe old age of 66. As Bob Dylan once sang, "Oh, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now." Yes my body is now twice as old and yet I feel half my age... the magic of meditation.
Through my years of peeling the layers of my own onion, I have turned my life from maditation in the world to meditation in my inner world. When reading this book, you will be constantly challenged to witness that you are not so much your conditioning in the marketplace of your home town, but more that the world is appearing in you... that you are not the mind. And more than that you are a child of the universe who is in charge of his own existence. In meditation this is often called No-Mind. So get ready to know just how big you are... that your mind is no longer your boss, Love is. - Krishna Prem
