Beloved Osho, Recently it has started happening that as I begin to open my eyes first thing in the morning I can see a vision, like a scene from a movie – and that scene happens days after in reality, just like a repetition.
“Remember, there are two modes of life: the action mode and the non-action mode. The action mode believes in action, the non-action mode believes in receptivity.” (Discourse excerpt part 2 of 4)
“This is the man of individuality, who does not care for his life, for his body, who has no fear. He accepted death with joy.”
“The story that we are going to go into today is one of the greatest stories. It has that special flavor that only a Sufi story can have.” (Part 1)
“The golden gate is open for those who are simple, who are humble, who are almost nobodies…” adds Osho.
Osho states, “When you are seeing a sunset and you are overwhelmed by its beauty, in that moment there is knowing.”
“When you come to me and you love me, your love has shadows on it of your past experiences,” states Osho.
“Love and respect can sweetly help them to be more understanding about the world, can help them to be more alert, aware, careful,” says Osho.
“Intellectuals are profound archers – first they shoot the arrow and then they draw the target!” explains Osho.
“Eastern psychology says that it is not the parents who decide your life. Really, you have chosen them,” states Osho.
Osho states, “In science, in archery, in other arts, concentration may be of great use – but it is not meditation.”
Osho says, “Thinking and contemplation are both processes of the mind, but they are very different, even opposite.”
“Democracy basically means government by the people… but the people are retarded. So let us say: government by the retarded, for the retarded, of the retarded,” states Osho.
Before I leave the world I have to complete what I have started. I cannot leave my garden unfinished,” states Osho.
Osho responds to the question, “And why has there not been a Master before you in all the ages who has combined and synthesized all the teachings of past Buddhas?”
“What kind of home is this where people go on changing? It is a caravanserai. It is just an overnight stay, and then one has to go.”
“You have to catch hold of your inner light with your own awareness. Other than that there is no way,” says Osho.
Osho speaks on ‘Agony and Ecstasy’: “Agony means: I don’t know who I am…. Ecstasy is the flower of agony.”
