NEVER BORN NEVER DIED,
ONLY VISITED THIS PLANET EARTH
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♥

HOW IS IT THAT WE USUALLY CHOOSE TO BE UNHAPPY? HOW IS IT THAT WE DON’T FEEL AWARE THAT IT IS A CHOICE?
This is one of the most complex human problems. It has to be considered very deeply, and it is not theoretical – it concerns you. This is how everybody is behaving...always choosing the wrong, always choosing the sad, the depressed, the miserable. There must be profound reasons for it, and there are.
The first thing: the way human beings are brought up plays a very definite role in it. If you are unhappy you gain something from it, you always gain. If you are happy you always lose.
From the very beginning an alert child starts feeling the distinction. Whenever he is unhappy everybody is sympathetic towards him, he gains sympathy. Everybody tries to be loving towards him, he gains love. And even more than that: whenever he is unhappy everybody is attentive towards him, he gains attention. Attention works like food for the ego, a very alcoholic stimulant. It gives you energy; you feel you are somebody. Hence so much need, so much desire to get attention.
If everybody is looking at you, you become important. If nobody is looking at you, you feel as if you are not there, you are no more, you are a non-being. People looking at you, people caring about you gives you energy. The ego exists in relationship. The more people pay attention to you, the more you gain ego. If nobody looks at you, the ego dissolves. If everybody has completely forgotten you, how can the ego exist? How can you feel that you are? Hence the need for societies, associations, clubs. All over the world clubs exist – Rotary, Lions’, Masonic Lodges...millions of clubs and societies. These societies and clubs exist only to give attention to people who cannot get attention in other ways.
It is difficult to become a president of a country. It is difficult to become a mayor of a corporation. It is easier to become the president of a Lions’ Club; then a particular group gives you attention. You are very important – doing nothing! Lions’ Clubs, Rotary Clubs...doing nothing at all but still they feel they are something important. The president goes on changing; one this year, another next year. Everybody gets attention. It is a mutual arrangement, and everybody feels important.

A SEEKER ASKS:
IN SO MANY WAYS, IN THIS WAY AND THAT WAY, YOU GO ON SAYING THE SAME THINGS. DOES TRUTH NEED SO MANY WORDS?
"Truth does not need one single word. Truth can never be expressed in words. Truth is beyond words. That is why, this effort is being made to say it in many different ways. You may not understand it in this way, but perhaps you may in that way.You may not see it from this direction, but perhaps you will from another.If you cannot see in this way, perhaps some other expression may help.
Perhaps, Sahajo's, perhaps Daya's, or Mahavira's, or Buddha's....... perhaps the expression of Christ - I will use any means to help you to understand.
If you miss this time, I will again find some other way to help you. BUT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY IS ALWAYS THAT WHICH CANNOT BE SAID. I am always having to tell you about that which cannot be told. But if I were to remain silent, then there would be no possibility for you to understand.
Truth cannot be contained in words, but if the IMPACT of the words continue to fall on you, then someone inside you will begin to wake up, and having awoken, will understand. WORDS ARE IMPACTS.
That is why, I don't speak about devotion all the time, otherwise you will fall asleep. I don't talk on meditation all the whole time, or on witnessing. Recently. I spoke on Lieh Tzu. It worked for some and didn't for some. THERE WAS NO POINT IN TALKING TO SPEAKING TO THEM ON HIM ANY LONGER...
So then I speak on Daya, on Ashtavakra, on Krishna instead...
I speak in so many different ways......... Your question is right: what I say in different ways is the same thing - I have nothing else to say.
BUT YOUR SLEEP IS SO DEEP THAT I MUST CALL YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN... But can remain silent, but if you don't understand me when I speak, how will you understand my silence?
TRUTH cannot be said in words, but if someone is willing to understand it can penetrate him even through words. Many enlightened ones have remained silent, but who has understood their silence?
A few enlightened ones have spoken. If they speak to 100 people, NINETY NINE of them will NOT understand. But even if just ONE UNDERSTANDS, that is enough.
EVEN IF ONE PERSON WAKES UP, THAT IS SUFFICIENT. Then, a CHAIN has been created: One person has awoken and that one person will awaken someone else.
Even the awakening of one person is a RARE EVENT on this earth - because if one person awakens, that one person will become the temple of divine....
THE MILIEU AROUND HIM WILL SPREAD, Waves will arise, Light will shower down, a Fragrance will emanate.
His music will echo far and wide, and someone else might AWAKEN because of that music. A chain has been started.
Moreover, those words belong to the DIVINE, just like everything else. Truth is divine's ... and words ... and nothingness.

Make friends with those who are on the path at least as much as you are. If they do not take you forward, at least they do not become a reason to move you backward on your quest. If this is not possible, just walk alone. The companionship of fools is not good. Remember one thing, you have come alone in this world and will leave this world alone. The togetherness ideal is just a way to make you feel better. That is why it is important to learn the art of solitude. In the company of a person who has gone deeper into themselves, you will feel their company as well as solitude.
Crowds are formed by people who are focused on the external. It’s a miracle to see that there are no crowds to be seen when you are with people who are focused in and within themselves. If ten internally focused individuals are sitting in a room, it is not that there are ten internally focused individuals sitting. It is each individual sitting by themselves, thereby not forming a crowd.
Internally focused people don’t make bridges to the outside. If there are ten externally focused people sitting, there not a crowd of ten people – it is a crowd of ten thousand. This is because each individual is connecting with the other ten and so on. Thousands of relationships are been forged. Even if internally focused people are together, they leave each other alone. The best company is offered from people who allow you to be alone even while you are with them. The people worth developing company with are people who let your solitude retain its purity. Reflection can only happen in solitude.
