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♥

Finding your Soulmate.... OSHO

It is certainly almost impossible to find the soulmate,
even if all the facilities are available.
The earth is big; millions and millions of people;
and life is very short.
How are you going to find your soulmate?
And remember, even if all the facilities are available.
Right now, no facilities are available.
It becomes even more impossible when facilities are not available,
when you are prevented in every way from finding the soulmate.
But even if you are helped, educated in how to find the soulmate,
then too it will be difficult to find them in a small seventy years life.
It rarely happens;
it is a rare phenomenon.

Man has seven centers.
The lowest is the sex center and the highest is the samadhi center,
And between these two there are five more centers. It is a ladder.
When all the seven centers of a man are in tune and in harmony with all the seven centers of a woman,
then you have found your soulmate.
It has happened only once in a while?
With Krishna and Radha, with Shiva and Shakti.
It could have also happened to Majnu and Laila,
if they had been allowed to meet,
to Shiri and Farihad, if they had been allowed to meet;
but the society hindered them.
And remember, Krishna and Radha were not allowed by the society either; it was not a legal marriage, it was illegal.
Radha was not Krihna's wife, but just a girlfriend.
And with Shiva and Shakti,
the parents were very much against Shakti getting married to Shiva.
He looked a very strange man: he was...
It was against the parental advice
that Shakti jumped into a love affair with Shiva.
But only once in a while has this happened, and this seems to be natural.
Whenever it happens, absolute oneness is felt: unity, not union...
Two persons utterly disappear into each other;
There is not even a small, thin screen dividing them;
There is no division at all.
It is unio mystica.
Two persons function as if they are one person;
two bodies, but one soul.
It is absolute harmony.
It is love at its peak.
No meditation is needed -  this love is enough..

If your love is lust you can’t find a Soulmate -OSHO

 Question – Beloved Master, I am a strong man, But I cannot find a woman who truely loves me. What is missing in me? I have come here to find a soulmate. Can you help me?

Osho – Sudhiro, maybe… but before I can help you to find a soulmate I will have to create a soul in you, which is far more difficult! You may be physically strong; that does not mean that you have a soul.

Soul is only a seed; you don’t have actual souls within you, just possibilities. And without a soul, people start searching for a soulmate! Only a SOUL can attract another soul. If you have a soul, then some soul is bound to be attracted towards you; you will find the soulmate.

But one never thinks that way. And the idea that you are a strong man may become an obstruction, because a strong man ordinarily is one who is more animalistic. That’s our idea of strength: a man who looks more like an animal. Whenever I see the pictures of Mr. Universe I am simply puzzled — I can’t see any beauty, they look utterly ugly; all muscles and nothing else! They look more like animals than men.

And this is not health either, because they all die early and they all die with dangerous diseases, for the simple reason that they force their bodies in a certain mold. They don’t love their bodies; their bodies are tense. By the time these Mr. Universes are forty they are on the verge of dying and they succumb to great illnesses, incurable, because they themselves have created those illnesses. They have been forcing their bodies, manipulating their bodies. They have succeeded, but at a great cost.

Strength, in the ordinary mind, means aggressiveness. And a woman needs a little more tenderness, not aggressiveness. And who knows, Sudhiro? You may just be carrying this idea that you are a strong man and you may not even be that. It may be just an ego idea, a fantasy.

Moe and Sophie had been married for twelve years. One night in bed Moe said, “Lift up your nightgown.”
Sophie did not answer.
Moe tried once again. “Hey, be a good girl. Lift up your nightgown.”
Sophie still did not reply.
Moe stormed out of the room, slamming the door. Sophie got up and locked it. For half an hour Moe walked the living room. Then he strode back to the bedroom, pushed on the door, and found it was locked.
“Open the door,” he pleaded. “I am sorry I got sore. Open the door!”
Sophie did not answer.
“If you don’t open the door I will break it down!”
“Look at my athlete!” shouted Sophie. “A nightgown he can’t lift up, but a door he will break down!”

There are no Soulmates - OSHO

There are no soulmates, because to be a soulmate you first have to understand what the soul is... ~ OSHO ~

Ordinary love is nothing but the other side of the coin: on one side is hate, on the other side is love.

And the coin can be turned at any moment - in the middle of the night. In twenty-four hours it turns many times. There are no soulmates, because to be a soulmate you first have to understand what the soul is; you don't even know that 'hey' is for horses!

It is so clear that for our experiences of life we have learned only words - love, soul, friendship - but we don't know their meaning as experience, only as given in the dictionaries. And unless you know their meaning in experience, you are simply carrying empty words, dead words. Their corpses start stinking very soon.

Everything is Mysterious: it is better to Enjoy it rather than Trying to Understand it.

Everything is mysterious: it is better to enjoy it rather than trying to understand it. Ultimately the man who goes on trying to understand life proves to be a fool, and the man who enjoys life becomes wise goes on enjoying life, because he becomes more and more aware of the mysterious that surrounds us. The greatest understanding is to know that nothing can be understood, that all is mysterious and miraculous. To me this is the beginning of religion in your life. ~OSHO♥

SEXUAL Exploitation in the name of TANTRA - OSHO Talks

Osho on Shortcoming in Tantra Teachings 

Question - Beloved Osho, Do You see shortcoming in the Teachings of Tantra that incline you to feel Tantric methods are not suitable for us?

Osho - It is not a complete system. There is  a basic fallacy that human beings fall into: they find a small truth, a part of the truth, and rather than discover the whole, the remaining part they imagine to fill up the gap. Because they have part of the truth, they can argue and they can manage to make a system, but the remaining part is simply their invention.

All the systems have done that. Rather than discovering the whole truth, it is the human tendency to say, "Why bother? We have found a small piece which is enough for the showcase, which is enough to silence any enemy who raises any question" -- and the remaining is just invention.

For example, tantra is right that sexual energy is the basic energy, so this energy should be transformed into higher forms. It is a truth. But what happened is that they never went very deep into meditation; meditation remained just secondary. And man's sexuality shows itself so powerfully that in the name of tantra it became simply sexual orgy.

Without meditation that was going to happen. Meditation should have been the most primary thing because that is going to transform the energy, but that became secondary. And many people who were sexually perverted, sexually repressed, joined the tantra school. These were the people who brought all their perversions, all their repressions. They were not interested in any transformation, they were interested only in getting rid of their repressions; their interest was basically sexual.

So although tantra has a piece of truth, it could not be used rightly. Unless that piece of truth is put in second place, and meditation moves into first place, it will always happen that in tantra, people will be doing all kinds of perversions. And with a great name, they will not feel that they are doing anything wrong; they will feel they are doing something religious, something spiritual.

I Don't Promise You Anything... -OSHO♥

 I don’t promise you anything. I don’t promise you the kingdom of God, I don’t promise you enlightenment — I don’t promise at all. My whole approach is of living moment to moment; enlightened or unenlightened, what does it matter? Living moment to moment joyously, ecstatically, living moment to moment totally, intensely, passionately…. If one lives passionately, the ego dissolves. If one is total in one’s acts, the ego is BOUND to dissolve. It is like when a dancer goes on and on dancing: a moment comes when only the dance remains and the dancer disappears. That is the moment of enlightenment. ~OSHO♥

The Mass Psychology

 To stand alone like a lion, and not to be a sheep in the crowd, is the greatest courage in existence. Very few people are able to get out of the mass psychology, of the collective mind. The collective mind gives a certain sense of false security. Naturally it gives you the idea that so many people—there are five billion people on the planet—cannot be wrong. Naturally there is no need for you to search for the truth individually. All these people have discovered it; it is easier and cheaper just to follow them…just to be a Christian, or a Hindu, or a Mohammedan, or a communist. It is very easy when a crowd surrounds you to feel warm and cozy. ~OSHO♥
