“Anger arises as a protection against pain … every pain is suppressed by anger – layers and layers of anger on pain. So just continue working on anger, and suddenly any moment you will feel the anger has disappeared, that you are becoming sad, not angry. The climate will change from anger to sadness, and when it does you can be certain that now you are close to pain. … Then the pain will erupt. … And pure pain is tremendously beautiful, because it will give you another birth immediately.”

“Life is insecure – that means life is free! If there is security then there will be bondage; if everything is certain then there will be no freedom … Just having the understanding, immediately you feel at ease. But that ease is not that of security, that ease is not that of death, that ease is not of the grave. That ease has tremendous chaos in it … A chaos at ease – that’s how a man should be. When you carry a revolution within you, every moment brings a new world, a new life. Every moment becomes a new birth.”

“Man lives in words; the words can be beautiful but they are all empty … Just as one goes on peeling an onion one has to go on peeling words, so one can come to the very core of them. And the miracle is when you go on peeling words like an onion ultimately you come to emptiness, nothingness … That is silence when all noise of the words has left you and there is only profound silence, undisturbed, undistracted. In that silence knowing happens, seeing happens, being happens.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 2

“Circumstances are irrelevant – the real thing is you, your attitude. All the love in the world can be given to you and if you decide to be miserable, you will remain miserable … But one can be happy, tremendously happy for no reason at all – because happiness and misery are your decisions. It takes much time to realise this because it is very, very comfortable for the ego to think that others are making you miserable … And you can simply come out of it; it is your own game – to become miserable and to ask for sympathy and love and everything.”

“The only thing that one has to sacrifice to learn this art is the ego, because the ego exists through struggle. The ego cannot remain alive if you stop fighting with existence. So ego and misery go together. Ego feeds on misery … And the art of being with the whole simply means that you disappear as a separate entity. How can you be separate if you are not fighting? – if you are simply flowing with the river, if you are just a dry leaf in the wind and wherever the wind goes you go … you don’t have any private destiny.”
Osho, Snap your Fingers, Slap your Face and Wake up, Ch 13

“A blissful person cannot contain his bliss; that is not possible in the very nature of things. A blissful person intrinsically radiates his source of joy. Just as light radiates rays and the flowers radiate their perfume, the blissful person radiates compassion, love, benediction. Hence the first duty is not toward anybody else but towards yourself. Help yourself. Remember the ancient proverb ‘Physician heal thyself’ and then you can become a healing force and without any effort, without any ego, simply, naturally, spontaneously.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 3

“Live totally, live lovingly but don’t possess, don’t dominate, and don’t allow anybody to possess or dominate you if you want to be really blissful; and if you are blissful you can share love. Love is a sharing of bliss; attachment is a sharing of misery. It is ugly, it is inhuman. Love brings freedom to you and also freedom to the person you love. Let that be the criterion – if it brings freedom it is love, if it brings bondage it is attachment. Attachment has to be dropped and love has to be grown.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 2

“That’s what meditation is – a moment of insight in which you can see how you have been creating your own enemies, and that very seeing become the death of all your enemies. One reaches to the ultimate truth by using these inner enemies as stepping stones …Try to understand the inner enemies and a miracle happens. Any enemy totally understood evaporates in that very understanding. Try to understand jealousy and it is no more … Understanding functions like a light; you bring the light into the dark room and darkness is no more.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 1

“Fulfilment is possible only when nothing in you remains potential, everything becomes actual … One has to bloom, one has to release one’s fragrance to existence. What the existence has given to us we have to return it back. We have to offer it back to god. When the offering is total, one is fulfilled. And that state of contentment is benediction.”

“We are continuously taught to compare, this is how the society creates a hierarchy. Somebody is superior to you, somebody is inferior to you … You are constantly trying to rise higher in the hierarchy and you are constantly preventing others from rising higher than you. This is our whole unnecessary life, our whole mess, confusion, chaos, and all depends on a simple thing – the idea of comparison … The moment you accept yourself as you are all burdens, all mountainous burdens, simply disappear. Then life is a sheer joy, a festival of lights.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 1

“I teach love, I teach rebellion, I teach grace. But everything starts with love and everything ends in grace and rebellion is the bridge … Rebel against everything that goes against your innermost self. Rebel against everything that wants to destroy your individuality, that wants you to become just a carbon copy, a pseudo phenomenon. Rebel against everything that takes you away from your authenticity, and you will have great love arising in your heart, and you will have great grace. It will follow you like a shadow.”

“You exist in the ocean of the divine, or Tao, or whatsoever you name it … Just look and watch and see. You have never been separate. Who breathes in you? You think you? Who lives in you? You think you? Who is born in you? Have you got any notion? That which is born in you, that which is living in you, that which is breathing in you is the whole. And these are just thoughts – how to merge? Then you will never be able to merge. Just look at the state of affairs – you are already in it!”
Osho, Tao: the Three Treasures, Vol I, Ch 2
