11 DECEMBER 1931 AND 19 JANUARY 1990

I would like more and more writers, poets, film makers to steal as much as they can, because truth is not my property, I am not its owner. let it reach in any way, in anybody's name, in any form, but let it reach. Beyond Psychology#3 Q#2 : Osho

If you really want to know who I am, you have to be as absolutely empty as I am. Then two mirrors will be facing each other, and only emptiness will be mirrored: two mirrors facing each other. But if you have some idea, then you will see your own idea in me."

"Only that which cannot be taken away by death is real. Everything else is unreal, it is made of the same stuff dreams are made of." ~OSHO♥

Just Be Responsible To Yourself - Osho

Just be responsible to yourself. Do whatsoever you feel like doing. If it is wrong, the punishment will immediately follow. If it is right, the reward will follow immediately, instantly; there is no other way. In this way you will start finding what is wrong, what is right on your own. You will grow a new sensitivity - Indians call it the third eye. You will start seeing a new vision, a new eye. Instantly you will know what is wrong, because in the past so many times you have done it and always suffered in consequence. You will know what is right, because whenever you did existence showered great blessings on you. Cause and effects are together, they are not separated by years and lives..

This is what I mean by "Being Responsible" to yourself. There is no God on whom you can dump your reponsibility, but you are always searching to dump on somebody, even on a poor man like me, who is continuously telling you that I am not responsible for anything, for anybody, Still, somehow, deep down you go on carrying the illusion that I must be joking. But you don't understand. Dumping your responsibility on me, you will remain retarded, childhish. You will never grow. The only way to grow is to accept all the good, the bad, the joyful, the sorrowful.  Everything that happens to you, you are responsible for. This gives you great freedom.

Religiousness is born in you only when you begin to feel total responsibility for yourself. Philosophy is one thing: philosophy can continue its meaningless absurd theorizing. Religion is different: religion is a decision, it is to feel totally responsible for yourself. Whatever I am - a violent, angry, greedy, lust-filled mind, a bundle of desire - I am responsible. 

The moment I feel that my ugliness is my responsibility that my sin-centred mind is my responsiblility, then the jump becomes possible. Because I am responsible for my ugliness, no one else can be responsible for my beauty. If I am responsible  for all the darkness that is within me, then all the light that comes to a Buddha can also come to me. By taking responsibility for the one, the other potential becomes open...



  1. My anger is my ugliness and is my reponsibility. Now with the new year,I am looking forward to finding peace in my soul.

    Wishing you a fantastic 2010, Cooldeep. Take Care.
