Truth liberates.
Whose truth?

How can my truth liberate you?
Your bondage is yours,
how can my truth cut your bondage?
You have created your bondage out of your ignorance,
you have to create your own liberty
out of your realization of truth.
Nobody else can liberate you.
Only you, and only you.

And never cling to the hope that somebody else can liberate you.
If that was possible than a Buddha would have been enough,
a Jesus would have been enough,
a Krishna would have done the whole thing.
There would have been no need.
This is the difference between scientific knowledge
and religious knowing.


Osho, Tao: The Three Treasures, Vol 4, Ch 4
