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

“Reality consists only of now, the present. It has nothing to do with the past and nothing to do with the future. It is so concentrated in this moment that if you can be in this moment, all that you are seeking and searching will be fulfilled… No conflict with nature, no conflict with existence, and all your misery, all your tension, all your anguish and angst will disappear on their own accord… The whole knows nothing of your ideals, the whole knows nothing about your moralities and conceptions of right and wrong, but the miracle is, the moment you merge with the whole, everything is right and everything is good and everything is beautiful.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 13


“It needs immense courage to go alone on a path leaving the whole crowd on the highway. To be in the crowd one feels cozy, warm; to go alone naturally one feels afraid. The mind goes on arguing within that the whole of humanity cannot be wrong… It is better just to be part of the crowd because then you are not responsible if things go wrong. Everybody is responsible. But the moment you depart from the crowd you are taking your responsibility in your own hands. If something goes wrong, you are responsible… If you don’t want to have responsibility you cannot have freedom, and without freedom there is no growth.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 8


“Why are people miserly? You have to understand their psychology – the psychology of miserliness… The miserliness arises because you are empty and you want to fill it with something, anything! You are always a beggar waiting for somebody to give something to you. But your inner emptiness is vast. It cannot be filled by money, power, prestige, respectability. You may have all and still you will feel the same emptiness. In fact the more you have the more you will become aware of the emptiness… Only love in a meditative consciousness gives you the feeling of fullness, and after fullness comes overflowing.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 24


“The new is always scary for the simple reason that it is new; you don’t know how to face it. All your knowledge is suddenly found to be absolutely meaningless, because there is no answer in your experience and knowledge that can be an authentic response to the new. Just by watching the new, from your very innermost core will arise the response. That is the way of the meditator. The meditator is continuously confronted with the new. In fact he is in search of the ultimate new which will never become old, which will always be fresh… Truth is never old, neither is the godliness that surrounds you from all dimensions.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 30


“There are only three things that happen in your life. One has already happened, and you could not do anything about it – your birth. Another is death. Again, although it has not happened yet, you cannot do anything about it. So drop these two things completely. They are beyond your grasp. Between these two remains life, love, rejoicing… Reality consists only of now, the present. It has nothing to do with the past and nothing to do with the future. It is so concentrated in this moment that, if you can be in this moment, all that you are seeking and searching will be fulfilled. This moment is the door to the divine.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 13


“First indulge in your passions as much as you can till you get really bored. This has to be the first step. Then only can you take the second step very easily… When you are utterly finished, you are bound to drop all greed, jealousy, judgments, anger… They will all drop on their own accord… The watcher is not boring; the watcher is such an utter silence, such tremendous peace and such a joy arising within yourself, not coming from outside. And the watcher brings you experiences that you have not even dreamed about.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 15


“Mind loves the old. With the old the mind is very at ease because it knows all the answers. It does not feel helpless. It does not feel that it has to choose this way or that way. It knows exactly what is the right answer. The mind never wants you to come in contact with the new. It keeps you going round and round with the old. Meditation is just the opposite of mind… The meditator wants to come each moment to the new, because only with the new does his intelligence become more sharp. Only with the new does he himself become new. Only with the new is the way towards the ultimate.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 30


“The more awareness you have, the more you will find your heart filled with ‘yes’. The less awareness and you will find your heart filled with ‘no’. ‘Yes’ brings joy, love, blissfulness. ‘No’ makes you a desert where nothing grows but only despair, anguish, angst… This ‘yes’ is so new to you. Although it is blissful, the old friends, misery and fighting and ‘no’… will try in every way to pull you back into their company… And to come out of this vicious circle is one of the absolute necessities… Unless your ‘yes’ is so pure that there is no shadow of ‘no’ in it, you will not be able to progress on the path of enlightenment.“

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 29


“Just a little awareness, and all problems can be solved so easily! But the mind’s tendency is negative… Your suffering has been long, your pains have been too many, your agonies too much, your failures innumerable… Because of this negative habit a small thing becomes so big and it prevents your energy from flowing towards the positive… Pay all your attention to the positive and ignore what is negative… as if the negative does not exist, as if it is just a shadow which will disappear on its own… You don’t pay attention to your shadow, or do you? The whole day it follows you and you don’t take any note of it!”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 15


“It is one of the most beautiful experiences to have a pure longing not knowing for what. The moment you know for what the longing is, the longing becomes a desire, and a desire is a hindrance, a bondage. But a pure longing, a heartache, not knowing at all for what, no objective in the vision, no goal to reach, but just a pure fire – it burns all the hindrances, it burns all the rubbish that centuries have put around you… It is the fire of pure longing that burns in your heart and that burns everything that is not you. And out of this fire comes your twenty-four-carat gold character – you in your authenticity.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 20


“The highest peaks of consciousness are when you are just a being – not doing anything, unmoving, utterly silent, as if you are no more. Suddenly the whole existence starts showering flowers on you. Man is trained for doing, because society needs him as labourers in different directions, for production for the greedy, for the cunning, for the powerful… Society has made doing very prominent and respectable. It has completely forgotten that there is another dimension to life… To be alive means to have a dance in the heart… to experience the eternal flow of life force within your veins… So non-doing is the ultimate value.”

“Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 17


“When all the revolutions have failed some new door should be opened. There is no point in again and again changing the powerful into the powerless and the powerless into the powerful… Rebellion is individual action. It has nothing to do with the crowd… Rebellion has something to do with changing your consciousness, your silence, your being. It is a spiritual metamorphosis. And each individual passing through a rebellion is not fighting with anybody else, but is fighting only with his own darkness. Swords are not needed, bombs are not needed. What is needed is more alertness, more meditativeness, more love… Surrounded by all these qualities you are born anew.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 26


“This is the beauty that existence has bestowed upon you as individuals. Nobody can enter your individuality, nobody can interfere. You can be killed, you can be crucified, but your freedom, your soul, your consciousness remain untouched even by your death… The power of a world conqueror is absolutely impotent for the simple reason that the man of meditation knows that he is not the body. And everything else that he used to be identified with – the wife, the children, the money, the power, the prestige – are all left far away. Just a pure consciousness, just a flame of light has remained within him which is indestructible.”

Osho, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Ch 24
