1001 Tales

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Osho quotes Coleridge: “These poems are the poems of my freedom – existence becoming free through me. These poems will have to wait.”

Beggar

“Between these two, everybody exists. Being a prince or being a beggar are just identities given by others. It is not your reality.”

Forest path

Osho: “That’s what I have been doing my whole life, telling people, ‘Just a little more. Soon you will be reaching.'”

Roulette wheel

“Staking everything, knowing that you are gambling with the unknown… you may be victorious, you may be a failure, but it does not matter,” states Osho.

Potatoes

“If your life is becoming insane just look deep down – you will find that all this deciding is driving you mad too,” says Osho.

Procrustes

Osho states, “The whole of existence exists without any logic. It may be a poetry but it is not a syllogism – hence it is so beautiful.”

Monk walking

Osho states, “Ego is a false notion of something which is not there at all. ‘Self’ means a center which can promise. This center is created by being continuously aware, constantly aware.”

Pebbles

“Trust is a touchstone… One day you come across a real touchstone. You pick it up, it is warm, but still you throw it,” states Osho.
