You have lived thousands of lives


Osho declares, “Anybody who comes to me, I am ready to work.”


I am ready to work on anybody because my approach is
whether you grow in this life or not is not the point;
even if you have tried a little bit,
that much will become part of you – in some other life maybe,
with some other Master, it may come to a fulfillment.
You may not become enlightened this time
but the very desire, the very longing is enough.
I will work whether you are worthy or not.
It is enough that you long for it. I will sow the seeds.
Maybe this life you will not grow,
but the seeds will remain because they are never destroyed.

And the people who are going to become enlightened in this life,
I cannot claim the whole credit,
because they may have lived with Jesus,
they may have lived with Buddha,
they may have lived with Mohammed,
they may have danced with Jalaluddin,
they may have sat with Bokuju, Rinzai…
You have lived thousands of lives.
If all those people would have been as choosy as Gurdjieff
you would not have been here;
because they all worked on you, something went on growing.
Hence I don’t choose at all.
Anybody who comes to me, I am ready to work;
my approach is different.
