“Men like me are born to be crucified;”
I received your letter.
Now never worry about me –
not even mistakenly! For two reasons –
first: the day I surrendered myself for God
I transcended all anxiety
because trying to look after oneself
is the only anxiety!
Ego is anxiety.
Beyond it: what anxiety? whose? and for whom?
Secondly: men like me are born to be crucified;
The cross is our throne
and our mission is fulfilled
only when stones are showered, not flowers.
But on the divine path
even stones turn into flowers,
and on the contrary path
even flowers turn out to be stones.
Therefore when the stones start raining on me,
be happy and thank God!
Truth is always received like this.
If you don’t agree
My regards to all.
Osho, A Cup of Tea, letter 130
