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♥

Whatsoever you are with yourself you are with others. Let that be a basic dictum. If you hate yourself you will hate others — and you have been taught to hate yourself. Nobody has ever said to you, “Love yourself!” The very idea seems absurd — loving oneself? The very idea makes no sense — loving oneself? We always think that to love one needs somebody else. But if you don’t learn it with yourself you will not be able to practice it with others. ~OSHO♥

I am not teaching you a religion. I simply want to tell you the truth. If you have done something wrong, go to the person. Be humble, ask his forgiveness. Only he can forgive you, nobody else — neither the Ganges nor God. And remember, that is the meaning of the word “sin”: forgetfulness. So now, don’t forget again and do the same; otherwise, your asking forgiveness becomes meaningless. Now be careful, be alert, be conscious; and don’t do the same thing again. That is true repentance. Once you made the mistake — it was just a mistake. To err is human, there is nothing to be worried about.

"You cannot be at ease either in love or in hate, you can only be at ease if there is nothing inside you, neither love nor hate. Both are tensions, both are diseases. Then you remain in yourself, alone in your consciousness. You exist without anyone else, the other has become irrelevant: you are centered." - OSHO♥

"I was thinking what should I give to you today? Because this is my birthday,I was incarnated into this body on this day. This is the day I saw for the first time the green of the trees and the blue of the skies. This was the day I for the first time opened my eyes and saw God all around. Of course the word 'God' didn't exist at that moment, but what I saw was God.
I was thinking what should I give to you today?
Then I remembered a saying of Buddha:
SABBA DANAM DHAMMA DANANA JNATI --
the gift of truth excels all other gifts. And my truth is love.
The word 'truth' looks to me a little too dry and desert-like. I am not in much tune with the word 'truth' -- it looks too logical, it looks too 'heady'. It gives you the feeling of philosophy, not of religion. It gives you the idea as if you have concluded -- that you have come to a conclusion, that there has been a syllogism behind it, argumentation and logic and reasoning. No, 'truth' is not my word, 'love' is my word. Love is of the heart. Truth is partial, only your head is involved. In love you are involved as a totality -- your body, your mind, your soul, all are involved.
Love makes you a unity -- and not a union, remember, but a unity. Because in a union those who join together remain separate. In a unity they dissolve, they become one, they melt into each other. And that moment I call the moment of truth, when love has given you unity. First, love gives you unity in your innermost core. Then you are no more a body, no more a mind, no more a soul. You are simply one -- unnamed, undefined, unclassified. No more determinate, definable, no more comprehensible. A mystery, a joy, a surprise, a jubilation, a great celebration.

There are only two ways to live your life, only two ways to be. One is the right way, the other the wrong way. The right is to give, to share, to love. The wrong way is to snatch, to exploit, to accumulate. Love and money are the symbols of these two ways. Money is neurosis, love is ecstasy. Love is the right way and money is the wrong way. ~OSHO ♥

My whole love and respect is for the person who accepts himself totally, as he is. He has courage. He has courage to face the whole pressure of the society which is bent upon splitting him into divisions — into good and bad, into saint and sinner. He is really a brave, courageous being who stands against the whole history of man, of morality, and declares to the skies his reality, whatever it is.
Remember, you can know much about love, but that cannot help to know love. Love can be known only by loving. It means you have to move into love without knowing anything about it. That’s why it needs courage. You have to move in the dark, with no map, nobody to guide, not even a torch. You have to move in the dark not knowing where you are moving, not knowing whether you are on the right track or not, not knowing whether you will find the path or you will fall in a ditch and be lost forever. This is the courage.

- To be alone is the only real revolution. To accept that you are alone is the greatest transformation that can happen to you. ~OSHO♥
- What is needed is not something in which you can forget your loneliness; what is needed is that you become aware of your aloneness - which is a reality. And it is so beautiful to experience it, to feel it, because it is your freedom from the crowd, from the other. It is your freedom from the fear of being lonely. -OSHO♥

People go on growing in age but not in maturity. They don’t become really ripe; they remain as childish as anybody else. And when you are a child and are childish it is not so embarrassing, but when you have become old and you are childish it is very embarrassing. They hide it, but deep down they are the same person, nothing has happened — because nothing ever happens without meditation. Just accumulating experience of the outside world does not transform you. It makes you very well informed about many things, but information is information, it is not transformation.

See life from a positive viewpoint. If you start being happy then the things that you grabbed onto because of your misery will drop by themselves. If meditation comes then wine will drop. If meditation comes, then meat-eating will drop. If meditation comes then slowly slowly sex energy begins to be transformed into brahmacharya. Just let meditation come.

"A meditator is naturally slow -- not because he is trying to be slow but just because there is nowhere to go. There is nothing to achieve, there is nothing to become, the becoming has ceased. When becoming ceases, being is. And being is slow, non-aggressive, unhurried. Then you can savor the taste of each moment with ...total presence, you can be present to the present; otherwise you are in such a hurry that it is impossible to have any look at that which is. Your eyes are focused on a faraway distant goal, a faraway distant star; you are looking there."

Osho on Sathya Sai Baba
* It happens that when for the first time a meditator attains to some psychic energy, some psychic power, the tendency, a natural tendency, is to exhibit it. And if he exhibits, sooner or later he will lose the power. Then a great problem arises: he cannot do it now, but now he has respectability. He is worshipped and people expect him to do miracles. Now what is he going to do? He will have to turn to magic, he will have to start learning tricks, to maintain his prestige.
* That's what happened to Satya Sai Baba and people like that. The first things that they had done were real, the first few experiments that they had done were not phony. But then the energy disappears. And by that time you have become famous, and people start gathering, foolish people, stupid people, and they expect you, and your whole ego depends on your exhibition. Now the only possible alternative is to learn magic tricks so that you can go on maintaining your prestige. If you brag, sooner or later you will become a victim of magical tricks. You will have to learn, and deceive people.
* Satya Sai Baba is neither a mystic nor a philosopher, just an ordinary magician.
Winners lose and losers win the game is still the same.
Leela, Leela, this life is just a play,
Those who say don't know and those who know don't say.

Never otherwise. In no other way.
At no other point in life’s journey.
The disciple has to be ready and ripe;
...only at that moment does the Master become visible.
The disciple has to earn eyes,
to earn ears, to create a heart, to feel.
How can the sun appear if you are blind?
The sun may appear but you will go on missing it.

Today at noon ... I happened to come across this beautiful talk by OSHO on Trust @:http://www.oshoworld.com and I knew I'd to share it with my friends here ... hope you enjoy reading...
"A man just got married and was returning home with his wife. They were crossing a lake in a boat when suddenly a great storm arose. The man was a warrior, but the woman became very much afraid because it seemed almost hopeless -- THE BOAT WAS SMALL AND THE STORM WAS REALLY HUGE, AND ANY MOMENT THEY WERE GOING TO BE DROWNED. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening.
The woman was trembling and she said, "Are you not afraid? This may be our last moment of life! IT DOESN'T SEEM THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO REACH THE OTHER SHORE. Only some miracle can save us, otherwise death is certain. Are you not afraid? Are you mad or something? Are you a stone or something?"
THE MAN LAUGHED AND TOOK THE SWORD OUT OF ITS SHEATH. The woman was even more puzzled -- what he is doing? Then he brought the naked sword close to the woman's neck -- so close that just a small gap was there, it was almost touching her neck.

With me, you have only to lose; you cannot gain anything. You are in a game where you can only be a loser. You will have to lose your ego, you will have to lose your jealousy, you will have to lose your fear. You will have to lose all kinds of crap that you are filled with. You will have to be empty — and emptiness cannot claim the ego. There is no place in emptiness, in nothingness, for the ego. You can be with me, not for anything that is going to be profitable in the future; you can be here only for this moment. ~OSHO♥

If you are identified with the heart, then your desires will be of a still higher nature, higher than the mind. You will become more aesthetic, more sensitive, more alert, more loving. The mind is aggressive, the heart is receptive. The mind is male, the heart is female. The mind is logic, the heart is love. So it depends where you are stuck: at the body, at the mind, at the heart. ~OSHO ((♥))

It is not a question of making efforts to be aware. If you make efforts to be aware, you will create tensions inside yourself - all efforts bring tensions. If you TRY to be aware, you are fighting with yourself; there is no need to fight. Awareness is not a by-product of effort: awareness is a fragrance of let-go: awareness is a flowering of surrender, of relaxation.
Just sit silently in a relaxed state, doing nothing... and awareness will start happening. Not that you have to pull it up from somewhere, not that you have to bring it from somewhere. It will shower on you from nowhere. It will well up from within your own sources. You just be silent, sitting.
♥ OSHO ♥
Examination is the first step: becoming alert to what passes through your mind. And there is constant traffic -- so many thoughts, so many desires, so many dreams are passing by. You have to be watchful; you have to examine each and everything that passes through the mind. Not a single thought should pass unawares, because that means you were asleep. Become more and more observant.
"First examine what is constantly there in your mind, what is being repeated again and again. You don't have many thoughts. If you examine minutely you will see that you have only a few thoughts repeated again and again -- maybe in new forms, new colors, new garments, new masks, but you have only a very few thoughts."
This is my observation: if you are unhappy you will find somebody who is unhappy. Unhappy people are attracted towards unhappy people. And it is good, it is natural. It is good that the unhappy people are not attracted towards happy people; otherwise they would destroy their happiness. It is perfectly okay.
Only happy people are attracted towards happy people.
The same attracts the same. Intelligent people are attracted towards intelligent people; stupid people are attracted towards stupid people.
You meet people of the same plane.
So the first thing to remember is: a relationship is bound to be bitter if it has grown out of unhappiness. First be happy, be joyful, be celebrating, and then you will find some other soul celebrating and there will be a meeting of two dancing souls and a great dance will arise out of it.

The society wants you to have beautiful personalities; the society wants you to have personalities which are comfortable for the society, convenient for the society. But the person is not the real thing, the individual is the real thing. The individual is not necessarily always comfortable to the society -- in fact he is very inconvenient. - OSHO

"So love should be unconditional. It should not make any conditions. One should not say, ’I will love you only if you do this, if you are good to me, or if you are beautiful, or if you are this and that.’ That will destroy love. A conditional love is not love at all. So make love more and more unconditional... Love fun...ctions as earth functions for trees. Everything divine is rooted in love."

Your letter has filled my heart with joy.
You are at the threshold of a great revolution;
now, even if you want to run away I will not let you.
You will certainly have to perish in it. so that
you can be reborn.
Gold has to pass through fire – only then is it
Love is fire for you and I pray to God that your
ego burns in it.
Then if love comes, prayer can come too; without
love. prayer is not possible.
Remember that body and soul are not two.
The part of the person that can be seen is the
body, the part that cannot be seen is the soul.
The same holds true for God and matter: God made
visible is matter and what cannot be seen is God.
Take life easily and naturally, just as it comes.
Welcome it in its endless forms with an attitude of
And do not impose yourself on life; life has its
own discipline, its own wisdom,
and those who are ready to live totally
have no need for any other discipline or wisdom.
But you have always been afraid of life and
therefore you are afraid of love.
Now life has begun penetrating you, breaking your
walls of security.
So, God’s infinite grace showers on you!
Don’t run from it now, accept it gratefully
and my good wishes are always with you.
-From The Book, A Cup of Tea
Nothing great is ever accomplished without getting mad,
that is, without breaking through
the ordinary level of consciousness
...and letting loose the hidden powers lying further below,
and also penetrating to the realm that is further above.
And it may or may not be true for any other great thing,
but it is absolutely true as fas as mediations is concerned.
Meditation means madness -
of course, with a method.

There are three ways to be ruined in this world:
first is by sex,
second is by gambling,
and the third is by politics. ...
Sex is the most fun, gambling is the most exciting, and politics is the surest.

Don’t allow the fear to overpower you, allow love to overpower you. Love comes from the center, fear always comes from the periphery; don’t allow this periphery to be dominant. And what have you got to lose? - OSHO

There was once a farmer who, after a poor crop, complained: "If God would only let me control the weather, everything would be better, because He apparently does not know very much about farming."
That's true! Nobody has ever heard about God being a farmer -- how can He know?
The Lord said to him: "For one year I will give you control of the weather; ask for whatever you wish and you will get it."
In the old days God used to do that. Then He got fed up.
The poor man became very happy and immediately said, "Now I want sun," and the sun came out. Later he said, "Let the rain fall," and it rained. For a whole year first the sun shone and then it rained. The seed grew and grew, it was a pleasure to watch it. "Now God can understand how to control the weather," he said proudly. The crop had never been so big, so green, such a luscious green.
Then it was time to harvest. The farmer took his sickle to cut the wheat, but his heart sank. The stalks were practically empty. The Lord came and asked him, "How is your crop? "
The man complained, "Poor, my Lord, very poor!"
Love is one of the most precious experiences, but before you can love someone, you have to find yourself; otherwise...
Love is one of the most precious experiences, but before you can love someone, you have to find yourself; otherwise, who is going to love? You don't know anything about yourself. You are absolutely unconscious. In this unconsciousness, whatever you do is going to be wrong.

I teach selfishness. I want you to be, first, your own flowering. Yes, it will appear as selfishness; I have no objection to that appearance; it is okay with me. But is the rose selfish when it blossoms? Is the lotus selfish when it blossoms? Is the sun selfish when it shines? Why should you be worried about selfishness?
You are born - birth is only an opportunity, just a beginning, not an end. You have to flower. Your first and foremost responsibility is to blossom, to become fully conscious, aware, alert; and in that consciousness you will be able to see what you can share, how you can solve problems.

The Rebel challenges us to be courageous enough to take responsibility for who we are and to live our truth. People are afraid, very much afraid of those who know themselves. They have a certain power, a certain aura and a certain magnetism, a charisma that can take out alive, young people from the traditional imprisonment....

Fear is poison to intelligence. How can you be intelligent if there is fear? The fear will go on pulling you in different ways. It will not allow you to be courageous, it will not allow you to step into the unknown, it will not allow you to become an adventurer, it will not allow you to leave the fold, the crowd. It will not allow you to become independent, free; it will keep you a slave. And we are slaves in so many ways. Our slavery is multidimensional: politically, spiritually, religiously, in every way we are slaves, and the fear is the root cause of it.

The Central question in Life is:
What would happen if You had everything that you want?
Check out Graham's version at
It is the instinct of exploration, the love of the unknown, that brings me into existence
- Nisargadatta Maharaja
In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.
All ideologies are idiotic, whether religious or political, for it is conceptual thinking, the conceptual word, which has so unfortunately divided man.

Rather than changing the partner, rather than dropping your woman or man, drop your ego. Dropping that ego, a different quality starts taking shape in your life, a different light, a different vision. And things settle in that vision. With that light coming in, all old miseries and conflicts and anguishes disappear.

Whoever may have died right now… each death is your death, because each death is a reminder that you are not going to be here forever. Each death is an opportunity to be awake. Before death comes use the opportunity of life to attain something which is beyond death.
Whenever freedom happens in human consciousness, freedom is felt from inside and love is felt from outside.
Whenever freedom happens in human consciousness, freedom is felt from inside and love is felt from outside. This love, this compassion, is an absence of both love and hate. The complete dualism is absent; there is neither attraction nor repulsion. So with a person who is free and loving, it depends on you whether you can take his love or not. It is not up to me how much love I can give you; it depends on how much love you can take. Ordinarily love depends on the person who is giving. He may give love; he may not. But the love I am talking about is not dependent on the giver. He is completely open and giving every moment. Even when no one is present, the love is flowing.

Meditation doesn’t lead you to silence; meditation only creates the situation in which the silence happens. And this should be the criterion — that whenever silence happens laughter will come into your life. A vital celebration will happen all around. You will not become sad, you will not become depressed, you will not... escape from the world. You will be here in this world, but taking the whole thing as a game, enjoying the whole thing as a beautiful game, a big drama, no longer serious about it. Seriousness is a disease.
Music was purportedly composed about two to three centuries back.... by the famous German Classical Musician, Bach.

"Love is not your problem. Your problem is that you have not been able to accept yourself, to stand ...on your own feet, to be respectful to yourself, to do something so that you can feel that you have some worth. Your worth should be within you, not donated by somebody else. A borrowed worth is dangerous; the person can take it back. And this goes on happening in so-called love affairs. Only an independent person can love and can be loved. And love will not create any problem for him."
You ask me: Have You never wanted to have a child Yourself ?
No, for the simple reason that I don't want to burden this earth.
It is already burdened too much.
I used to live in Raipur for one year. One day I just saw the neighbour beating his small child, so I rushed into his house and told him 'What are you doing? I will call the police!'
He said 'What are you talking about? This is my kid! And I can do anything that I want to my kid! And who are you?'
I said 'This is not your kid. This is God's kid. And I can claim as much as you can claim.'
He could not believe what nonsense I was talking.
He said 'This is my kid. Don't you know?—you have been living here for one year.
He could not understand because of the claim—the claim that 'This is my kid, and I can do anything that I want to do.
For centuries parents were allowed to kill their child if they wanted to. They were allowed, because the thought was accepted that 'You have given birth.' How can you give birth? You have been just instrumental. Don't claim.
No child belongs to you. All children belong to God, they come from God. You are at most a caretaker.

COULD YOU TALK ABOUT TRUST? WHENEVER I TRUST, WHATEVER HAPPENS IS BEAUTIFUL; WHEN DOUBT ARISES, I AM IN PAIN. JUST THE FACT OF TRUSTING YOU, OR LIFE, OR SOMEBODY, IS ENOUGH TO MAKE ME FEEL LIGHT, HAPPY. WHY THEN DO I STILL DOUBT?
Prem Isabel, it is one of the most fundamental questions of life. The question is not only about trust and doubt: the question is rooted in the duality of the mind. It is so with love and hate, it is so with body and soul, it is so with this world and the other world.
Mind cannot see the one. The very process of mind divides reality into polar opposites -- and reality is one, reality is not two, reality is not many. It is not a multiverse, it is a universe.
It is an organic whole, this existence. But the mind basically functions by dividing, the mind functions like a prism; immediately it is divided into seven colors. Before passing the prism it was simply white, pure white; after the prism it is the whole rainbow.

“The original word sin means to miss. It doesn’t mean to commit something wrong; it simply means to miss, to be absent. The Hebrew root for the word sin means to miss. That exists in a few English words: misconduct, misbehavior. To miss means not to be there, doing something without being present—this is the only sin.
You cannot fall in love if you are aware; then falling in love is a sin. You can love, but it will not be like a fall, it will be like a rise. Why do we use the term falling in love? It is a falling; you are falling, you are not rising. When you are aware, falling is not possible—not even in love. It is not possible; it is simply not possible. With awareness, it is impossible; you rise in love. And rising in love is a totally different phenomenon from falling in love. Falling in love is a dream state. That’s why people who are in love, you can see it from their eyes: as if they are more asleep than others, intoxicated, dreaming. You can see from their eye because their eyes have a sleepiness. People who rise in love are totally different. You can see they are no longer in a dream, they are facing the reality and they are growing through it.
Falling in love you remain a child; rising in love you mature. And by and by love becomes not a relationship, it becomes a state of your being. Then it is not that you love this and you don’t love that, no—you are simply love.
Whosoever comes near you, you share with them. Whatsoever is happening, you give your love to it. You touch a rock and you touch as if you are touching your beloved’s body. You look at the tree and you look as if you are looking at your beloved’s face. It becomes a state of being. Not that you are in love—now you are love. This is rising, this is not falling.
Love is beautiful when you rise through it, and love become dirty and ugly when you fall through it. And sooner or later you will find that it proves poisonous, it becomes a bondage. You have been caught in it, your freedom has been crushed. Your wings have been cut; now you are free no more. Falling in love you become a possession: you possess and you allow somebody to possess you. You become a thing, and you try to convert the other person you have fallen in love with into a thing.
Possession…everybody goes on trying to possess the beloved, the lover. This is no longer love. In fact, when you possess a person, you hate, you destroy, you kill; you are a murderer. Love should give you freedom; love is freedom. Love will make the beloved more and more free, love will give wings, and love will open the vast sky. It cannot become a prison, an enclosure. But that love you don’t know, because that happens only when you are aware; the quality of love comes only when there is awareness. You know a love that is a sin, because it comes out of sleep.”

[The tantra group is present. One participant says she feels dead and not in touch with her sexual energy at all. Osho checks her energy.]
Osho – It has nothing to do with your sexual energy; it has something to do with your throat, but they are connected. The first place from where a child starts is oral, from the mouth. Life first starts with the mouth, and somehow in your childhood that has been repressed – either the mother never gave you enough breast or something else but your oral centre has not started functioning well.
The oral centre is joined with the anal centre, but the problem is not there at the sex centre. The
problem is somewhere in the mouth. So start doing a few things – they will help and the energy will start flowing, mm? One thing is, purchase a pacifier and start sucking it. In the night, particularly when you are going to sleep, just lie down, curl up like a small child, mm? Feel as if you are very very small, take the nipple in your mouth and start sucking it… and enjoy it!
Do this for five, seven minutes in the night and then go to sleep, fall asleep. Even if it remains in
your mouth, leave it there and fall asleep. That will release something that is tight there. Once it is released, your sex centre will respond. It is on the other end, but they function together. That’s why kissing is such a sexual thing, so erotic.
You will be surprised to know that kissing is more erotic in a society where breast-feeding is less. In america or any country where breast-feeding is less, kissing is very very erotic. In primitive societies where a child goes on and on at the breast for years unless he himself drops it, kissing disappears.
There are tribes who have never kissed in their whole history. When they came to know that western people kiss so much, they simply laughed at the whole nonsense of it. They could not believe it – why? for what? The whole thing looks so horrible to them, so ugly and dirty – putting your lips on somebody else’s lips….
Because their children are so much breast-fed – you will find a seven-year, eight-year, even a nineyear- old child sucking from the mother – those societies don’t have any hang-ups with the mouth. Another thing: those societies are not interested in the breast at all. Otherwise, all societies have certain hang-ups in the mouth and all societies are interested in the breast. Men continuously think of breasts; painters paint, thinkers think, novelists write, and film makers, photographers, sculptors – everybody is interested in the breast.
There was a german painter here – he is my sannyasin: he only paints breasts and nothing else,
and he is one of the most important painters in Germany… but he paints nothing else! But this is how things are! So start this, mm? The second thing: in the morning, the moment you feel that you are awake, lying down on the bed start making faces.
Can you make faces? Try, right now. Really go into it, forget everybody, mm ? Let it happen…
anything that comes to your mind, do it. It is very elementary, but it will come by and by… and join the mime group, mm? mime will be very helpful. Your whole problem is in the mouth.
When you are back home start singing, shouting, making any sound. Let the mouth be used as
much as you can. Within ten days you will see that here the mouth is relaxed and there the sex centre goes on relaxing and energy is flowing.

I have been constantly inconsistent so that you will never be able to make a dogma out of me. You will simply go nuts if you try. I am leaving something terrible for the scholars; they will not be able to make any sense out of it. They will go nuts --- and they deserve it, they should go nuts! But nobody can create an orthodoxy out of me, it is impossible. From my words you can get burned, but you will not be able to find any kind of theology, dogmatism.
You can find a way to live but not a dogma to preach. You can find a rebellious quality to be imbibed, but you will not find a revolutionary theme to be organized. My words are not only on fire, I am putting gunpowder also here and there, which will go on exploding for centuries. I am putting more than needed --- I never take any chances. Almost each sentence is going to create trouble for anybody who wants to organize a religion around me.
Yes you can have a loose community, a commune. Remember the word loose: everybody independent, everybody free to live his own way, to interpret me in his own way, to find whatsoever he wants to find. He can find the way he wants to live --- and everybody unto himself.
There is no need for somebody to decide what my religion is. I am leaving it open-ended. You can work out of a definition for yourself - but it is only for yourself, and that too you will have to continuously change. As you understand me more and more, you will have to change it. You cannot go on holding it like a dead thing in your hand. You will have to change it, and it will go on changing you simultaneously.

Knowledge is through experiencing.
Mere information is not knowledge,
on the contrary it cannot give the clarity
which knowledge gives to the mind
and may confuse one more
because a confused mind is still more burdened with it.
Two men had played chess regularly together for
They were quite evenly matched
and there was keen rivalry between them.
Then one man began to beat his rival nearly every
time they played
and the other man was completely at a loss
to understand this phenomenon.
On the contrary, he was expecting his game to improve
because he was reading a four-volume set
on HOW TO PLAY CHESS!
After much thought he came up with an idea.
He sent the books to his friend as a gift --
and it was not long before they were evenly matched

One day Lin-chi was asked: What is the essence of meditation?
Lin-chi came right down from his seat
and taking hold of the questioner by the front of his robe,
slapped his face, then let him go.
The questioner, of course, stood there stupefied.
Then Lin-chi laughed and said to him: Why don't you bow?
This woke him from his reverie,
and when he was about to make a bow to the Master
he had his first taste of meditation!
Please read this again and again and again,
and if you do not have the same taste
then slap your face yourself
then laugh and bow down to yourself --
and then you will have the same taste, surely!
-OSHO, A Cup of Tea!

Be empty and you will know.
Be empty and you will be the mirror.
Oh, only total nothingess is capable of knowing all!
I have heard that the nun Chiyono studied for years
and meditated for years on the ultimate questions of existence
but was unable to find the light.
The thinking was filling her so much
that she could not be a passage to the divine.
She was so much filled by herself
that she could not be a host to the divine guest,
and the more she longed for enlightenment
the more far off it was.
But one moonlit night she was carrying an old pail
filled with water
-- and the thing happened!
She was watching the full moon reflected in her pail water
when the bamboo drip that held the pail staves broke.
The pail fell all apart,
the water rushed out,
the moon's reflection disappeared --
and with it disappeared Chiyono herself.
She was not -- but the enlightenment was there!
She wrote this verse:
This way and that way
I tried to keep the pail together
hoping the weak bamboo
would never break.
But suddenly the bottom fell out:
no more water
no more moon in the water --
and emptiness in my hand!
