Horoscope by Phoebe with Osho quotes; “Love is enough. Live only out of love. It may last long, it may not last, but… even if it is there for a single moment it will give you the taste of eternity. And there is every possibility that, if you are not afraid, it may last longer because fear is poison.”
Phoebe would like to point out that we all have all the twelve zodiac signs in our horoscope – some with planets in them and some are empty – meaning some of the themes addressed are in the foreground and some in the background of our lives. “I recommend readers to read all twelve quotes, not just their star sign, for a wider perspective on the themes of the month,” she says.
Mood of the Month
“Love is enough. Live only out of love. It may last long, it may not last, but.. even if it is there for a single moment it will give you the taste of eternity. And there is every possibility that, if you are not afraid, it may last longer because fear is poison. It poisons everything. If you are not worried about tomorrow you may live today so totally that out of that totality a beautiful tomorrow will arise. But if you are afraid of tomorrow you may destroy today. And once today is destroyed, from where is tomorrow going to come?”

“If one is courageous, bliss starts from the very beginning. Just the idea that you are going into the exploration of the unknown is enough to give the heart a new beat, a fresh breeze, a new joy, a rebirth, a resurrection – truth, bliss, freedom, godliness, love. These are all aspects of one experience and that experience is available only to the courageous, to the rebellious. Be a rebel!”

“Love totally but don’t ask for permanence… Only false things are permanent. Real roses are bound to wither sooner or later, but plastic roses are permanent. They don’t wither away, but they don’t have any fragrance either. They don’t have any life. They have only the appearance of roses. Marriage is a plastic rose, love is a real rose. Grow real roses in your life. Of course they will wither – so what? You can grow them again. You can go on growing them.”

“There are far greater things which are beyond the reach of the head. And when you are moving into those realms you should put the head aside… Something far deeper exists in you – you should not forget it. Intellect is only the periphery, the circumference. It is not the center of your being. The center of your being is intuition… Your circumference is your ego; your center is in tune with Tao. Your center is not yours, it is not mine – the center is universal. At the center we all meet and are one.”

“We know the universe but we never know it as wonder-filled. Children know, lovers know, sometimes poets and madmen know. We do not know that the world is wonder-filled. Everything is just repetitive – no wonder, no poetry, just flat prose. It doesn’t create a song in you, it doesn’t create a dance… The whole universe looks mechanical… If the universe is not a wonder, you cannot be religious… The universe becomes unknowable, a mystery, only when your eyes are wonder-filled. ”
Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol I, Ch 1

“In your ego you feel you are strong. You feel you are the master. You feel nothing can harm you. You feel everybody else dies, not you. You feel superior, and nothing is there in that superiority. It is just a bubble, a soap bubble – inside nothing but emptiness. And you know it, because anybody can touch the bubble and it is no more there – it explodes. Feel helpless and you will never be helpless again. Feel empty and you will be full with the divine. That’s the secret!”

“The whole effort to improve oneself creates much anxiety and tension. It disturbs one’s energy and destroys much. Once ‘shoulds’ have been dropped, and… once you simply accept whomsoever you are or whatsoever the whole wills you to be, once you don’t want to change a single thing and you have no complaints, but you simply want to live and enjoy and delight… then suddenly a totally new dimension opens. Suddenly you start dropping, sinking, drowning in the present.”

“If I say to you, ‘Observe this flower; observe this flower which I give to you,’ you cannot observe it. For a single moment you will see it, and then you will begin to think of something else. It may be about the flower but it will not be the flower… Now the flower is no more in your observation… Observation means remaining with no word, no verbalization, with no bubbling inside – just remaining with. If you can remain with a flower for three minutes, completely, with no movement of the mind, the thing will happen – the beneficence. You will realize!”
Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol I, Ch 3

“Anger is pure energy – nothing bad, nothing good. It may become good, it may become bad. That will depend on the result, not on the energy. It can become bad if it goes out and destroys something, if it becomes destructive. It may become a beautiful ecstasy if it moves within and throws you to the center. It may become a flower. Energy is simply energy – pure, innocent, neutral… Do not think. Simply stop and then remain stopped. In that remaining you will have a glimpse of the inner center.”

“The only thing certain in life is death. Everything else is uncertain – it may be or it may not be… When death is certain there is no fear. Fear is always with things which can be changed. If death is to be, fear disappears. If you can change, if you can do something about death, then fear will remain. If nothing can be done, if you are already in it, then it is absolutely certain that fear will disappear. When fear of death had disappeared Buddha would allow you to meditate. He would say, ‘Now you can meditate!’”

“People remain closed as a safety measure. It is more secure. You can avoid people. You can always remain at a distance so that nobody can approach you and nobody can harm you, and before anybody rejects you, you can always reject. You are always the first to reject, so the ego feels very very fulfilled. But it is a very very morbid enjoyment, perverse. Real life is always in danger – the more danger, the more life. The more insecurity, the more life. So meditate over it.”

“Your mind has brought you to the state you are in. If you are in hell, your mind has brought you to this hell and you never doubt this guide. You can doubt any teacher, any master, but you never doubt your mind. With unflinching faith you move with the mind as the guru… If you are going to doubt anything, doubt first your own mind. And whenever your mind says something think twice. Is it true that you do not have any time? Really? You do not have any time to meditate?… Think twice!”

“You are already that which you want to attain. The end of longing is already there, present in you. Here and now, this very moment, you are that which is known as divine. The ultimate is here, it is already the case… Your body is here hidden in clothes. In the same way your spirituality is here hidden in certain clothes. These clothes are your personality… You do not know how to be naked. You have been in clothes for so long, for lives and lives and lives… You think these clothes are you. That is the only barrier.”
Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol 1, Ch 4
