Phoebe’s horoscope with quotes from Osho; “Everything is just a window.”
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
“Everything is just a window. If you become identified with a pain, you are looking from a window, and the window of pain, of suffering, opens only towards hell. If you are one with a satisfactory moment, a blissful moment, an ecstatic moment, you are opening another window. The existence is the same, but your widows are different. Wherever satisfaction is found, in whatsoever act, actualize it.. Be happiness in that moment and make that happiness a door.”
Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol. I, Ch 35

“Mind knows no contentment because mind is without love, and contentment is a by-product of love… Mind is in a constant fight, and, of course, fighting with the whole is doomed from the very beginning. You cannot win. How can a small wave of the ocean hope to win against the ocean? The very desire is simply insane, and mind breeds all kind of insanities but they all start from the seed of discontentment… The moment you are loving you are starting to agree with existence. That’s what love is all about.”
Osho, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Ch 7

“Life is insecure, love is insecure. We are in emptiness, in tremendous nothingness. And it is good that it is so, otherwise we would be dead. Life can be a security only if you are dead; then everything can be certain… If tomorrow is fixed, then there can be security but you have no freedom. Then you are just like a robot. You have to fulfill certain things that are already predestined. But tomorrow is beautiful because tomorrow is total freedom. Nobody knows what is going to happen.”
Osho, Above All Don’t Wobble, Ch 5

“Each one lives in his own world, and there are as many worlds as there are minds because each mind creates its own world, its own milieu… With mind there can be no meeting – only collision, conflict. When mind is not, there can be a meeting… These fictions of the mind are maya. The role of the guru is to shatter the fictions so that the fact becomes available to you, and you become available to the fact. That ‘facticity’ is truth.”

“The past is heavy on you, and because of the past the present is never known. The past is known; the present is a very minute, atomic moment. You go on missing it because of the past. And because of the past you go on projecting into the future. The past is projected into the future and both are false. The past is no more; the future is yet to be. Both are not, and that which is, is hidden between these two.”

“The man who is aware of the self finds no shallowness within himself whatsoever… Shallowness is only to be found in one’s ignorance of the self. If you are unaware, that unawareness itself is your feeling of shallowness. If you are aware, there is no shallowness, just like there is no darkness in the presence of the sun… The moment you become aware nothing like shallowness exists. The moment you become the sun there is nothing like darkness to be found anywhere.”

“One who suffers wants to share his suffering with others. A man can only share what he possesses – it is impossible to live without sharing what you have. Flowers share their fragrance because fragrance is what they are; stars share their light because they are light themselves. A man shares his suffering if suffering is what he is. But man can also share joy, because man can also become joy.”
Osho, The Long and the Short and the All, Ch 2

This life can be simply magnificent, fantastic, but you are playing with noise of your own imagination… To accept without any judgement, any condition, is to move into a totally different dimension – call it divine, or whatsoever… Any moment that you drop your problems it is available.”
Osho, Above All Don’t Wobble, Ch 10

“There are small loves in life and there are great loves in life. Small loves make life petty. The person who loves money will not really grow – his love is very petty, very mean… The man who loves power will remain ugly because power can be obtained only through violence… Not only the political power but all kinds of power are ugly and violent. But the man who loves dancing will go deeper, and the man who loves meditation will go deeper than any… because it is through meditation that God arrives. ”

“Rejection never transforms anything. It simply suppresses, and that which is suppressed becomes more powerful… A disease of which you are aware can be cured; a disease of which you are unaware cannot be cured. Bring everything up to the surface. Accept your humanity, your animality. Whatsoever is there, accept it without any condemnation. It is there and be aware of it… This awareness will transform you… Acceptance is transformation, because through acceptance awareness becomes possible.”

Whatsoever you do will be done out of depression, so it will create more confusion… You are depressed, so this is how existence is happening to you at this moment. You are depressed, so remain with it. Wait and watch… This is how transformation happens through non-doing. This is what is meant by effortless effort.”

“There are some turning points in your consciousness. At these turning points you are nearer to your center than at other times. You change gears, and whenever you change a gear you pass through the neutral gear… From sleep to waking your consciousness changes the whole mechanism. It jumps from one mechanism to another. Between the two mechanisms there is no mechanism; there is a gap. Through that gap you can have a glimpse of your being.”

“Sometimes you are vulnerable, sometimes you are not… And it is good not to feel too affected because that creates a kind of center of gravity outside you. The center of gravity should always be inside you. You should live your moods from inside… If others affect you too much – somebody is sad, somebody is negative, somebody is miserable and you become affected – that is bad because you will be losing your own center, your own grounding… One has to be alert about that.”
Osho, The Open Door, Ch 22
