Osho states, “Avoid esotericism. They are dangerous things, you can become hooked into them … Eat your breakfast and have a good sleep! “
The ordinary life becomes extraordinary if you live it totally, fully. Avoid esotericism. They are dangerous things, you can become hooked into them. And then you will be just in mind-trips, imagination. If you love imagination it is okay, if you love fantasizing it is okay. You can create your own planes and your own astral travels and subtle bodies and whatsoever you want.
A young woman dreamt that the Prince Charming had come on his horse. A beautiful horse and the beautiful prince – and she has been waiting for this Prince Charming for ever and ever, and he has come. When you wait too much, beware – it happens. And the prince took the woman on the horse and the horse started galloping towards some unknown destination. And the woman was thrilled – who would not be thrilled? And she asked the prince, ‘Where are you taking me?’ And the prince said, ‘This is your dream. So you say to me where you want to be taken. This is your dream.’
In these so-called esoteric trips, wherever you are going it is your dream. Masters will appear – Kuthumi and KH – and automatic handwriting will appear, and messages will be received from the beyond. And all sheer nonsense. Eat your breakfast and have a good sleep.
