Osho declares that the first freedom is to know that you are responsible.
From Savita’s book ‘Dinner with Osho’: a story told by Shobhana about learning to appreciate what is beautiful in life.
Osho states, “… if there is even a little bit of intelligence in America then it is time to stop now; otherwise, the country is going to have the same fate as that of Rome and Roman civilization.
Osho answers a question about why he has come to earth, and says, “My whole message is to see the truth, to see the hell that ego creates in the name of perfection, uniqueness – and to let it drop.”
“Remember that you are alone, there is no God, there are no messengers, and there is no dictator. You have to be decisive about your own life,” states Osho in 1987 after he returns to Pune.
Declare your freedom individually. And that’s my movement. You are here, not as a society, not as a community, you are here as an individual, states Osho

In her brilliant and visionary new novel, ‘The Heart Goes Last’, Margaret Atwood puts the human heart to the ultimate test. Read this excerpt from her book, set in a near-future dystopia.
Osho asserts that society will soon fix an electrode in people’s brains to control them – it will be cheap and easy, and then there will be no possibility for human freedom.
Leela writes that life is not just about being with the other. It is about finding your inner being.
Beloved Osho, I really felt affected when you talked about Rajen the other night, because I feel friendship for him, and I feel he loves you as he did before. I feel that in dropping the mala and the red clothes, he is simply trying to experience something new.
