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

“Neither marriage is needed nor soulmates are needed. Just friendliness is enough. You don’t know anything about soul – how can you become a soulmate? If you can become just friendly with each other that is more than can be expected from the present man. If you can be understanding of each other’s frailties, weaknesses, that is more than can be expected… Love is very fragile. It is just like a flower, beautiful but very delicate. In the morning it blossoms; by the evening it is gone. Its petals are scattered… Life is a changing, continuously changing phenomenon.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 20


“Great things come to you… when your doer is absent, and the preoccupied mind is also your doer. Emptying the mind is possible. It is your doing – you can undo it. But listening is something beyond you, something far greater than you. You cannot manage it. You can simply allow yourself to be overwhelmed by it, to be flooded by it. But one thing you can certainly do – you can undo the preoccupation. What are our preoccupations? What do we go on thinking, and why do we go on giving so much nourishment to thinking? What has it produced in the long life you have lived up to now? Is it not a sheer wastage of time?”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 8


“You are asking… what I mean by love. I certainly don’t mean anything that you will find happening in the world. I mean by love a sharing of the hearts. But first you should find your heart. I mean a sharing of beings. But first you should meditate deeply and go into the secretmost chambers of your being, so that you have joy and bliss to share in abundance. Your love is not to share something but just to escape from yourself so that you can be involved with somebody else. Your love is against meditation. My love is a flower of meditation. It is a blossoming of meditation. Only a meditator can be a lover.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 11


“The evolution of consciousness goes through many ups and downs. It is a hilly track… It passes through valleys to reach to the peaks, and each peak is just a beginning of a new pilgrimage because a higher peak is ahead of you… Those valleys are parts of the mountains. You cannot take the valleys away and leave the mountains alone. Once this sinks deep into you, you will pass through the valleys dancing and singing, knowing perfectly well that a higher peak is waiting for you… The peaks have their glory; the valleys have their richness… Remain choiceless, and whatever comes enjoy it as a part of natural growth.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 2


“Misery can certainly be different from suffering… Misery is a state of mind when the night is dark and you don’t have even a hope of any dawn. When all hopes die, you shrink within yourself… This kind of misery does not help growth. On the contrary, it destroys all the possibilities of growth… Suffering has a positive side to it. Suffering means you have a longing, a hope… You are searching, but you are failing again and again. You are trying your best to come out of it… You have not accepted it as your fate. Then there is a possibility that the night will end – a new dawn, a new beginning, a new consciousness!”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 1


“Don’t make a story of your life, life is too valuable… Make it a beautiful growth, a flowering, a celebration, a light unto yourself and for anybody else who is ready to share the light. The night is very dark and the night is very long. Even a single man with a light may be of immense help to millions of people to bring the dawn closer… In different ways you go on making the same mistakes all your life. If you are given another chance to live again, you will make the same mistakes – I can give a guarantee for it because you don’t learn. This place is a place of learning.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 15


“The idea of safety has created the idea of accumulating knowledge. Nothing should be left unknown because the unknown creates insecurity; if it is known, you feel safe. Even small things you are continuously trying to know… So people go on filling their heads with all kinds of knowledge most of which is simply rubbish… Ignorance has not to be covered but transformed into innocence… Ignorance has to become a feeling of the mysterious and the miraculous in existence… Insecurity is the very nature of life; there is no way to avoid it. And, when there is no way to avoid it, the only wise way is to enjoy it!”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 6


“You become afraid when a moment of giving comes. You want just to take – even with love. You want that someone should love you? The basic need is that you should love someone… If someone loves you that will not help because then you are taking in again. Both of these poles must be balanced, then health happens. And that is what I call a normal being… one whose taking in and giving out is parallel, balanced… Always remember that you must give back that which you have received. You will be alive, healthy, silent, peaceful, happy. A deep rhythm will happen to you… through a balance of give and take.”

Osho, Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol 2, Ch 8


“Whenever someone dies you are reminded again that you are a mortal being, that death can take possession of you any moment. This is the root fear. All other fears are reflections of it… But the desire is that, if you are special, existence will treat you with some kindness, some compassion. It will think twice… Rather than putting your energy into being special, put your whole energy into being yourself. Just find yourself, because… the further away you go from yourself, the further away you are from knowing… that there is no death. Once you recognize your immortality, death disappears. And with death all fears evaporate.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 9


“To experience life in its totality and intensity is to know the only significance and meaning of existence. That’s the only way. No philosophical thinking can make you aware of the tremendous meaning, and the beautiful blossoms, and the immortality of your being. Then the juice of life, drinking the juice of life, is the only way there has ever been of finding godliness in the stones, in the trees, in the rivers, in people, in animals, in the birds. The whole of existence is full of vibrating light. It is just that we should be tuned in, and then suddenly everything becomes such an ecstasy, you could not have conceived of it before.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 6


“Either you can exist as an unconscious being – you have existed that way from the very beginning – or you can exist as a conscious being. As a conscious being all your actions are bound to change. Your life will have a different aroma. Your actions will have different goals… You will have only one dimension – how to get free from unconscious actions, unconscious imprisonment; how to be absolutely conscious and move out of all chains. Meditation will be nothing then but a methodology to prepare the ground for you to jump from unconsciousness into consciousness and that is the greatest quantum leap!”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 10


“Science tries to know things, but that does not demystify them. It simply pushes the mystery back a little. You split the atom… and then you say that the atom consists of electrons, protons, and neutrons and you think you have provided the knowledge. But the question is, why does the atom consist of electrons, protons, and neutrons? The mystery is not dissolved, it has become more subtle. The man of understanding will accept that insecurity is the very fabric of life, and that not knowing is the counterpart of the miraculous and the mysterious existence. We know nothing!”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 6


“Don’t be bothered about God. It does not matter whether God exists or does not exist. What matters is whether silence exists, awareness exists, or not. If you are silent and aware, you yourself are a god… In silence and awareness mind melts and disappears and reveals your divineness to you… Awareness brings you to a point where you are able to see with your own eyes the ultimate reality of yourself and the universe… a miraculous experience that you and the universe are not separate, that you are part of the whole. To me this is the only meaning of holy.”

Osho, The New Dawn, Ch 18
