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♥

Be Empty & You Will Know! - OSHO

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!

-OSHO, A Cup of Tea!
