Osho is asked, “Why am I afraid of other people?”
Osho concludes his commentaries on the last stanzas: ‘With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.’
Osho speaks on further lines from the Desiderata, starting with ‘Neither be cynical about love… Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.’
Osho comments on: ‘Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter…’
Osho continues with the line in Desiderata: ‘Without surrender, without making any compromise, remain yourself.’
“The new man, he will be complete, entire, acquainted with the outside world and acquainted with the inside world as well,” says Osho. From our series 1001 Tales, compiled by Shanti.
