This month’s horoscope by Phoebe with quotes by Osho; “It is time to disconnect ourselves from the past absolutely and to create a new future…”
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
“It is time to disconnect ourselves from the past absolutely and to create a new future… or you are going to destroy this beautiful planet. Either a tremendous revolution that throws away all the past that we are loaded with, or we will be killed with the weight. And not only we will be killed – the trees, the birds, the animals, the flowers, everything will disappear… Do you want to survive? Then drop all kinds of slaveries and all kinds of unconscious superiorities, inferiorities. Just let each human being be himself, accepted, respected… The only requirement is to go in and discover your eternal self.”
Osho, Zen: The Solitary Bird, Cuckoo of the Forest, Ch 15

“It is part of this great pilgrimage: the moment you become contented… it feels the journey is over, and you are tremendously blissful. But as time passes an old habit of millions of lives starts raising its head. There seems to be no excitement!… But excitement is a momentary thing… always up and down, falling back into misery, searching again for some excitement… You have to learn a new art of seeing your contentment… You have to die to the past so that every day your peace and your contentment are fresh… Each moment has to be a death and a resurrection.”
Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 3

“Beggars are asking each other for love and feel frustrated, angry, because the love is not coming. But this is bound to happen. Love belongs to the world of emperors, not to beggars. And a man is an emperor when he is so full of love that he can give it without any conditions… First be full of love, then the sharing happens, and then the great surprise that, as you give, you start receiving from unknown sources, from unknown corners, from unknown people, from trees, from rivers, from mountains… The more you give, the more you get. Life becomes a sheer dance of love.”
Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 4

“The mind enjoys conquering… that which is difficult. The obvious has no appeal for the mind. On the contrary, the obvious is the danger. It is the death of the mind and its desires and longings. You are the obvious. That’s why mind never looks inwards. It is so simple – it is already there. What is the need? First become the world’s greatest celebrity, become famous, become powerful… Mind will never become interested in going inwards because there awaits its death. There is no function for it; there is nobody to conquer – just a pure space, a silence. “

“The moon is the symbol… of your eternity, of your beauty, of your blissfulness and Buson wrote, ‘Such a moon – the thief pauses to sing’. The thief is always afraid. He moves very cautiously, but ‘Such a moon – the thief pauses to sing’! The thief forgets that he is a thief and he becomes a singer. Every moment is ready to open its doors. If you are willing to relax into non-doing, if you are willing to relax into no effort, if you are ready to put the mind aside and just be, you will also explode in a song.”

“‘The sun overflows our eyes; for ten thousand leagues not a cloud hangs in the sky’. This is the Way – just spaciousness, nothing clouding your consciousness, no anger, no greed, no ego, just a pure, innocent being… To be utterly silent, without any judgment, this is your original nature – you have found the universe within yourself. Then the sun rises within you and the whole sky with all the stars is part of your consciousness… The only authentic concern for a seeker is to find the center of his own being – and he has found the center of the whole existence.”

“A poem by Reizan: ‘The myriad differences resolved by sitting, all doors opened, in this still place. I follow my nature, be it what it may.’ Just by sitting silently, all doors of existence open. Zen simply means sitting silently, not doing anything. Everything happens spontaneously. It is ready to happen. You are preventing it by being busy – busy without business, doing all kinds of stupid things. This is sheer wastage of a tremendously valuable lifetime. A single moment of silent sitting is an eternity in itself – you have come home!”
Osho, Zen: The Solitary Bird, Cuckoo of the Forest, Ch 10

“If you give up the ego… you can fill yourself with love!… Love is obtained unconditionally. There is no question of paying any price. There is only one condition to be fulfilled, there is only one barrier. The mind, filled with the ego, thinking it is everything, feeling it is the center of the world, cannot fall in love… cannot be in love with anyone because the very meaning of love is to make the other the center of one’s life. The other becomes so important that he becomes the center and you remain on the periphery… Love means the transformation of the center.”
Osho, The Great Secret, Ch 1

“We are all in the process of dying, and the degree to which we step up measures for our security is in direct proportion to the progress we make in digging our own graves. The reason you look so lifeless is because you have made so many arrangements for your safety. To be insecure is to be alive. Life’s mantra is to live in insecurity, and of course living like this there is no safety. A stone is safe and a flower lives in danger, but a stone is dead… Love is a flower. And there is no greater flower, no more important flower in this world than love. There is also nothing that is in greater danger.”
Osho, The Great Secret, Ch 1

“Reality is one. How can there be so many philosophies? …Since millennia the mystic in every country, in every race, in every age has experienced the same reality. The philosopher thinks about reality; the mystic simply drops all thinking… He becomes a mirror and the reality reflects itself. The mystic is the greatest flowering of human consciousness… To know this truth you have to be utterly absent. Your very presence will distort the vision, because your presence means the presence of your mind… Your absence means absence of all prejudices, all borrowed knowledge… just a pure sky, a pure being.”
Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 1

“Let-go means you start living in a saner way. You are no longer madly after money, you don’t go on working continuously. You work just for your material needs. But there are spiritual needs too… Let-go is one of the most beautiful spaces. You simply exist doing nothing, sitting silently, and the grass grows by itself… You don’t have to do anything to experience existence; you have to stop doing. You have to be in an absolutely unoccupied state, with no tensions, with no worries. In this state of tranquillity you come into a certain tuning with the music that surrounds us.”
Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 5

It is so creative that it always brings something new in each individual – a new potential, a new possibility… The individual is the most valuable phenomenon because the individual is part of existence… You will have to gather courage to come back to yourself. The whole society will prevent you, you will be condemned. But it is far better to be condemned by the whole world than to remain miserable and phony and false… You can have a blissful life, and there are not two ways, only one single way: that is, you have just to be yourself.”

“You want to be loved, but… you are you capable of receiving love? There are so many hindrances which won’t allow you to receive it… You have never accepted yourself as you are, you have never loved yourself. How can you manage to receive somebody else’s love? You know you are not worthy of it… When you yourself cannot love you, when you have not seen yourself, your beauty and your grace and your grandeur, how can you believe it? …You will have to go through a great transformation before you can receive it… First you have to accept yourself without any guilt.”
Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 5
