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♥

All That Is Beautiful Is Feminine - Osho

"Hitherto humanity has praised hardness very much, particularly in man. For centuries man has been a male chauvinist pig! He has praised all that is aggressive, cruel, violent, warlike, and he has condemned all that is feminine.

And because of this a great problem has arisen. The problem is: all that is beautiful is feminine, and if you condemn the feminine then the beautiful disappears from the world. And we have struggled hard to destroy the beautiful. The ugly has dominated the beautiful; the hard has been praised against the soft.

Lao Tzu says, "Don't be hard like a rock, but be soft like water." He calls his way of life the watercourse way. And he says, "Ultimately the soft wins over the hard, the rock will disappear one day. Let the water go on falling on it and the rock will be reduced to sand." Of course, right now you cannot see it happening, it will take time, but the rock cannot destroy the water. For that one needs a little deeper insight - a longer vision, a bigger perspective. And we are very shortsighted. We only see so far. Because of this shortsightedness the rock seems to be worth choosing, not water. Those who have seen reality in its true perspective of eternity, they say something totally different. Let softness be the gift."
