Translating an Enlightened Vision into Action – a compilation of Osho’s words.
If you engage in any work with courage, there is no barrier to its success.”
In Work Is Love Made Visible Osho talks about his work: its importance and value, the inner qualities that those interested in helping it succeed need to understand and develop, and its day-to-day organization. These talks were given shortly after he had left his university post and are addressed to the people who had recently started working with him. Osho discusses the profound personal issues that work brings up for everyone around hierarchy, power, responsibility, and the art of relating, demonstrating at the same time a supreme respect for each person’s individuality, dignity and freedom.
These talks cover every practical area of his work, from the perils and practicalities of financial accounting to the importance of using the most up-to-date media available. Underpinning all of this is his understanding that unless humanity is prepared to walk through the fire of awareness and allow work itself to become a moment-by-moment tool for self-transformation, no one will ever derive any real benefit from working and no work will ultimately succeed.
Osho outlines his blueprint for a new “anarchic institution” and says: “I do not intend to bind people by laws, rules or principles, because I am fighting against these very things.” Instead, his proposal is rooted in “a gathering of friends,” as it prepares the ground for a spiritual revolution – a total transformation for the individual and for the whole of society.
