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

“Don’t try to drop the ego. Rather try to deepen your understanding. Don’t try to make water change into vapor – heat it. The second thing will follow automatically, it will happen. Grow in understanding. Make it more intense, more focused. Bring all your energy to understand the phenomenon of your being, your ego, your mind, your unconscious. Become more and more alert, and whatsoever happens make it a point to try to understand… why it is happening, from where it is coming, where the roots are… Now add a new element to it – the element of understanding.“

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 5


“Will-power will not help you. Will-power is not a power at all, because will depends on the ego – a very tiny phenomenon. It cannot create much power. When you are will-less then you are powerful, because then you are one with the whole… Will-power is not really power but weakness. A really powerful man has no will of his own – the whole is his will. He floats like a white cloud, one with existence, in tune with it. Your will will always create conflict. It will shrink you, make you an island, and then the struggle starts.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 3


“Kabir has said somewhere, I look into people. They are so much afraid, but I can’t see why because they have nothing to lose… What have you got to lose? Nothing! This body will be taken by death. Before it is taken by death, give it to love. Whatsoever you have will be taken away. Before it is taken away, why not share it? That is the only way of possessing it… If you can give there will be no death. You will have already given it – you will have made it a gift… For a lover there is no death. For a non-lover, every moment is a death!”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 7


“Don’t say I am this, so how can I be that? You are both and there is no need to choose. The only thing to remember is to be balanced between the two. Then you will transcend both… Once you know that between the opposites balance is possible, once you have a glimpse of it, then you know the art. Then everywhere in life, in every dimension of life, you can attain that balance very easily. Really, to say that you can attain is not good. Once you know the knack of it, whatsoever you do, the balance follows you like a shadow.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 4


“Look for the mysterious in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it… Dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it… Suddenly the mundane world of division, of separation has disappeared, and a different, totally different world of oneness comes before you… not divided but one!”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 1


“You want to be occupied. That’s why you cannot drop the ego. Unless you are ready to be empty, unoccupied, unless you are ready to be nobody, unless you are ready to enjoy and celebrate life even if you are not needed, ego cannot be dropped. You have a need to be needed. Somebody must need you then you feel good. If more and more people need you, you feel better and better. That’s why leadership is so much enjoyed, because so many people need you… If you can remain unoccupied, if you can remain satisfied without being needed, the ego can drop this very moment!”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 5


“Sex has to be transformed – neither repressed nor madly indulged. And the only possible way to transform sex is to be sexual with deep meditative awareness… Move into sex, but with an alert, conscious, mindful being. Don’t allow it to become an unconscious force. Don’t be pulled and pushed by it. Move knowingly, understandingly, lovingly. But make sexual experience a meditative experience. Meditate in it… The quality of it starts changing – the same energy which is moving into sexual experience starts moving towards consciousness.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 5


“You always blame the other if something goes wrong. If something is not happening as it should, the other is responsible. This will destroy the whole possibility of future growth. Remember: you are always responsible, and change yourself. Drop those qualities which create trouble. Make love a self-transformation… If you think the other is wrong you are closing yourself and the other. And the other also thinks that you are wrong… Relationship is destroyed on this rock… Then don’t say the other is wrong. Just try to find out – somewhere, something must be wrong in you, and drop that!”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 7


“What is the fear? Why are you so afraid? Even if everything is known about you and you are an open book, why fear? How can it harm you? Just false conceptions, just conditionings given by the society, that you have to hide, that you have to protect yourself, that you have to be constantly in a fighting mood, that everybody is an enemy, that everybody is against you. Nobody is against you… Everybody is concerned with himself, not with you. There is nothing to fear… Become a passage always open, no locks, no doors on you, no closed doors on you. Then love is possible.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 7


“Meditation basically means a state of no-mind. It is where you are – not going anywhere, where just being, just to be, is the goal. The goal is here and now. Once the goal is somewhere else mind starts its journey. Then the mind starts thinking; then the mind starts a process. If future is there then mind can flow… then mind has space to move. With purpose comes future… So mind goes on creating purposes. If the so-called worldly purposes are lost, then the mind creates religious purposes, otherworldly purposes… Only that mind is religious which is purposeless.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 1


“One reaches to knowledge only through suffering. You cannot throw anything just by logical argument. You can throw something only when it has become so painful that it cannot be carried any further. Your ego has not become that painful yet – hence you carry it… Everything has a time to grow, to be ripe, to fall down into the earth and dissolve. Your ego also has a time. It needs maturity… And then there is a second step when it has to be dropped. That too is natural, but the second step can be taken only when the first has come to its crescendo!”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 8


“When you know too much – you have known the scriptures, you have known the past, the tradition, you have known all that can be known – then suddenly you become aware of the futility of it all. Suddenly you become aware that this is not knowledge. This is borrowed! This is not your own existential experience. This is not what you have come to know. Others may have known it; you have simply gathered it. Your gathering is mechanical. It has not arisen out of you; it is not a growth… It is just rubbish gathered from other doors, borrowed, dead!… Then you can drop it.”

Osho, My Way: the Way of the White Clouds, Ch 8


“The whole of existence is like a white cloud – without any roots, without any causality, without any ultimate cause. It exists. It exists as a mystery. A white cloud really has no way of its own. It drifts. It has nowhere to reach, no destination… You cannot frustrate a white cloud because wherever it reaches is the goal. If you have a goal you are bound to get frustrated. The more goal-oriented a mind is the more anguish, anxiety… because once you have a goal you are moving with a fixed destination, and the whole exists without any destiny. The whole is not moving anywhere. There is no goal to it, no purpose!”
