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

“If Zen is the path and you are the gate, then who lives in the house? You live in the house, but you have forgotten. And to remind you, a path has to be created. To remind you a gate has to be created. To remind you, you have to be taken on the path and given help to enter the house… Just an imaginary game – getting out on the path, doing great disciplines, meditations, the master. Finally the gate comes and you say, ‘Aha! I have arrived.’ And this is the house which you have never left!”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 10


“The mind goes on taking you into new desires, new longings, new achievements, new greed. Slowly, slowly a curtain falls between you and your mind, and the mind completely forgets your being. It forgets completely that there is an inner world also, not only an outer existence. The outer is very poor in comparison to the inner. But once you get involved with the outer, it is so vast that there is a possibility you may wander around in the universe for millions of lives, and you may not realize that you are wasting your time, that it is time to look in… You are much more than you think you are!”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 1


“Don’t expect that love has to be permanent… Love comes like a fresh, fragrant breeze into your home, fills it with freshness and fragrance, remains as long as existence allows it and then moves out. You should not try to close all your doors or the same fresh breeze will become absolutely stale. That’s what people’s lives have become – stale, ugly. And the reason lies in their idea of permanent love. In life everything is changing and change is beautiful. It gives you more and more experience, more and more awareness, more and more maturity.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 2


“Thinking is a poor substitute for experience, and a dangerous substitute because it will prevent you from experiencing… But people go on thinking about things which can only be experienced. It is one of the greatest problems that thinking gives you substitutes and if you become satisfied with those substitutes, guesswork, then you will never encounter the real. It is because of this that I emphasize first get rid of all your thinking. Be in a silent clarity, a transparency, so that you can see things as they are… Reality cannot be discovered by thinking and guesswork.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 4


“To feel at home is one of the most spiritual experiences. Ordinarily nobody feels at home anywhere. People go around the world in search of a place where they can feel at home, but wherever they go they are the same person. They carry all their worries, their tensions, their anguishes and… continue to feel a certain unease. Otherwise you can feel at home anywhere. This whole existence is our home… In these sounds of the birds do you hear anywhere any sadness? Just overflowing joy… Just the joy of overflowing energy makes them feel at home.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 10


“Life is a tremendous energy phenomenon. You are not aware of how much energy you have… Kabir says that, in his experience of inner being, he sees as if thousands of suns have suddenly arisen. All around him suns are dancing; the light is so dazzling that it makes him almost blind… There is no need for any fear. Rejoice with the flames of the energy, dance with those flames, have a communion with those flames… Soon you will see your small flame of life has disappeared into the vast energy that has arisen. You have entered into the cosmic, into the universal, and the vaster the energy, the greater the ecstasy.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 11


“The word ‘responsibility’ has been continuously used in a wrong way. It gives a feeling of burden – you have to do it, it is a duty. If you don’t do it you will feel guilty. I want to remind you that… break the word in two – response-ability – and you enter a totally different meaning… Response-ability is not a burden. It is not a duty; it is not something you have to do in spite of yourself. Response-ability simply means spontaneous response. Whatever situation arises, joyously you respond to it, with your totality, with your intensity. And this response will not only change the situation, it will also change you.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 12


“That is the nature of the mind – it cannot decide anything… If you have succeeded in being in deep meditation, there is no need. Meditation has a clarity. Unwavering, unhesitating, it knows no alternatives. It simply goes on doing what the whole being says to do. It is undivided… The meditator simply goes, does things. He has no regret, no repentance. He never thinks for a single moment he should have done something else which would have been better. He has put his whole totality in – nothing could be better than that. That experience becomes one of tremendous transformation.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 4


“Everybody has destructive energy, because energy if left to itself is bound to be destructive, unless it is used with awareness and becomes creative… To enjoy destructive energy is suicidal; to enjoy destructive energy as destructive is in the service of death. If you are aware of it you have to go through a transformation… The most important part will be that you will not feel guilty and depressed. No creative person feels depressed and guilty. His participation in the universe by his creative actions makes him tremendously fulfilled and gives him dignity. That is the very birthright of every man, but very few people claim it.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 2


“We have become accustomed to dreaming, running after goals, never arriving but always trying to arrive. The goal seems to be just close by, but the distance between you and the goal remains the same… Mind can live only in movement. When there is no movement time stops, mind stops, only you are… Unless you create a distance between the mind and you – you the witness – you will remain searching. Money, power, prestige, God, paradise, enlightenment… any direction is okay. Just stopping is dangerous because the moment you stop mind dies… You disappear into the oceanic existence, hence the fear.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 3


“To see the stars you need the darkness. And stars are so beautiful, but they will not be there without darkness. You have to understand the beauty of darkness too… If you take one away the other will also disappear. The silence is beautiful… but the great moment is when you understand that the noise of the marketplace is also beautiful, because the beautiful silence and the beautiful noise are part of one whole. The day and the night, the summer and the winter, childhood and old age, all have tremendous beauty. The moment you see the beauty of both together you have transcended them.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 11


“The global crisis is so big and you are so small, what action can you take?… These are unnecessary burdens. Enjoy the moment, grow into your consciousness, be more spontaneous, more compassionate, more loving – no commitment, no great megalomania of saving the whole planet. Rejoice in it, and out of this rejoicing, action comes… If we can make more people lovable, celebrating, more spontaneous, the global crisis can be avoided. But don’t take it seriously, be playful about it. If existence wants this planet not to exist, who are we to prevent it?”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 11


“You need only a prayerful heart, a loving heart, a grateful heart. That is your real temple. That will transform your whole life. That will help you to discover not only yourself, but the very depths of this immense existence. We are almost like the waves of the ocean – just on the surface, and the ocean may be miles deep… but a small wave on the top will never know the depth – her own depth because she is not separate from the ocean. She will… be afraid of losing herself in the vastness, the oceanic infinity. But the truth is the death of the wave is not a death, but the beginning of an eternal life.”

Osho, Hari Om Tat Sat, Ch 9
