Phoebe’s horoscope with quotes from Osho: “You are just a pool without waves … the whole being silent, still. Inside, at the center, silence and on the periphery celebration and laughter.”
Mood of the Month
“The key is still alive, still opens the door. These two are the parts: The inner silence – the silence so deep that there is no vibration in your being; you are, but there are no waves. You are just a pool without waves, not a single wave arises; the whole being silent, still. Inside, at the center, silence and on the periphery celebration and laughter. And only silence can laugh, because only silence can understand the cosmic joke… Your outer life becomes festive. There is no sadness in it.”
Osho, A Bird on the Wing, Ch 10

“You are all like rivers; you will all reach to the ocean. But don’t make it a goal, otherwise the faster you go, the slower you are moving; and the more you want to reach, the more you are stuck, because the more you become afraid. The fear of missing the goal grips hold of you, the fear of not reaching cripples you, the fear of going wrong paralyses you. If there is no goal, there is no fear. Remember, fear is goal-oriented… You relax! When you are no longer there, it happens. ”

“Remember, anger or hate are not the real opposites of love – indifference is the real opposite. When someone is indifferent to you, love is lost. If someone is not even ready to be angry with you, then everything is lost. But ordinarily… you react more violently, you become aggressive. You cannot understand the symbolic meaning of it… You have not really known your own anger, that’s why you cannot understand others’ anger… You are angry only when you love someone, otherwise there is no need.”

“When you are filled with thoughts the mind is blurred, your vision is not clear. But what to do? Thoughts are there, let them be there. You be unconcerned… They flow like a stream, let them flow. You sit on the bank and rest… If you are unconcerned, by and by the energy withdraws itself. They become less and less. Then a moment comes when thoughts come only when they are needed. Thoughts are not a burden – unneeded thoughts are a burden, they create your blurred vision.”

“Midway between the insincere world of pretensions and the real world of sincerity and totality – just in the middle – there are real tears. On the surface people cry just for show – they are not concerned. Then you go deeper and a point comes when you really cry; you are concerned. If you go still deeper a point comes when crying disappears… Western methods emphasize being true about all your emotions – cry, laugh, hate, love, act them out. But the eastern psychology has long ago touched… the rock bottom of it all – and that is just to be a witness.”

“The only way you can be of any help to the world is that you disappear – become an emptiness. Out of that emptiness arises the flame of love and compassion. Out of that emptiness arises a fragrance of divineness. And then you help millions, but you never come to know that you are helping them… Before that, you can become a very pious egoist. Helping others one feels oneself on top of them… In your very look there is condemnation and you cannot help anybody through condemnation, only through compassion.”

“If work comes out of love, it becomes worship. Then there is no need for any other meditation. It is enough. The work itself becomes the meditation. You are so deeply in it that the mind stops. Energy needs work otherwise the energy will become restlessness. Energy needs expression, energy needs to be creative. Otherwise the same energy coiled up inside you will become diseased, an illness. You have energy. The energy has to be creative. There is no happiness except in creativity.”

“Law is needed because people are loveless. When there is love there is no need of any law. Love is enough unto itself… Love, and if you love, then whatsoever you do is right. And the vice versa is also true – if you don’t love, whatsoever you do is wrong . Although it is right according to the law, it is still basically wrong because love is missing. It is a corpse; there is no soul in it. With love whatsoever you do is right, because love is intrinsically incapable of doing wrong. Remember it and not only remember it, try to live it.”

“Don’t try to be good, and don’t try to be right. Don’t try to avoid the wrong and don’t try to avoid the bad, because then your life will lose all salt. You will become tasteless. Saints are tasteless – at least so-called saints. A real saint has tremendous contradictions in him; he is paradoxical. He is both sweet and bitter. He is as dark as the darkest night, and as full of light as the noontime. He’s simply like a child. You can almost call him a fool… and he is as wise as there is the possibility to be.”

“Conscience is given by the society; consciousness you have to achieve. The society goes on telling you this is right and that is wrong – that is conscience… That is worthless, that is not the real thing. The real thing is your own consciousness. It carries no ready-made answers, what is wrong and what is right, no. But immediately, in whatever situation arises, it gives you light – you know immediately what to do… This is freedom. and this freedom is the goal. Don’t stop before you have attained it… Be a light unto yourself.”

“There are two types of order in the world: one man-made, another divine. Man-made order is just a make-believe. It is not really order, it only hides disorder. Deep down the anarchy continues… Just the opposite is the case with the divine order. On the surface there is chaos, and deep down in the depths there is order… The center has a cosmos in it and the periphery has chaos on it… When outside there is disorder and anarchy, where do you move, where do you go?… You start moving inwards, you come to your center… Only when the outside life is in chaos is the inner life born.”

“The eternal music is heard when there is nobody as a knower… when you see the rainbow you are not there separate from it, you become it; when you see a beautiful sunset you are it. It is the mind that divides. When you see the sky full of stars, it is within you, you are within it. There is no distinction, no demarcation, no fencing around you. It is a dissolution, a melting, a merging, a deep orgasmic unity, and that is the very foundation of my message.”
