Thinking Is Dangerous

Thinking Is Dangerous

Osho Waking Times Thoughts are always subversive. Only people who do not think are not subversive. Thinking is a crime. Jesus is crucified, Socrates is poisoned, Gautam Buddha is stoned. These people have not harmed anybody. They were the most loving, most compassionate human beings possible — but they committed a crime, and the crime’s […]

On Gods & Big Stones

On Gods & Big Stones

Osho Waking Times What do you do when you go to a Hindu temple, or a Mohammedan mosque, or a Christian church, or a synagogue? – you are worshiping things which you yourself have created. And that shows man’s utter stupidity: first you carve a statue of God and then you prostrate yourself before it. […]

Let Love be Your Prayer

Let Love be Your Prayer

OSHO Waking Times Love is risky. To love is to move into danger-because you cannot control it, it is not safe. It is not within your hands. It is unpredictable. Somehow, from the very childhood, we are being crippled. Our roots with the heart are cut. We are forced towards the head and we are […]

On an Emotional Roller-Coaster: Fear is Part of Your Intelligence

On an Emotional Roller-Coaster: Fear is Part of Your Intelligence

Fear of Death Means a Partially-lived Life

Fear of Death Means a Partially-lived Life

OSHO Waking Times Often the fear of death comes up, intense and strong, and the fear of having to leave all this beauty, this friendship and love.

Meditation Is Rest: Rest Makes Your Mind Efficient

Meditation Is Rest: Rest Makes Your Mind Efficient

OSHO Waking Times Meditation makes you a master and the mind becomes a slave. And remember: the mind as a master is dangerous because, after all, it is a machine; but the mind as a slave is tremendously significant, useful. “When I say, “Drop the ego, drop the mind,” I don’t mean that you cannot […]

Happiness Is A Natural Phenomenon

Happiness Is A Natural Phenomenon

OSHO Waking Times Happiness is a natural phenomenon. Happiness is man’s nature. You need not worry about happiness at all, it is already there. It is in your heart — you just have to stop being unhappy, you have to stop the mechanism functioning that creates unhappiness. But nobody seems to be ready for that. […]

Roots of Terrorism

Roots of Terrorism

Osho The first step toward a healthy life is to accept one’s state of unhealthiness. If mankind was only just beginning to be haunted by terrorism, things would be very easy. But mankind has always been haunted by terrorism, hence the matter is very complex. The forms of terrorism have changed – this insanity has […]

Looking And Seeing

Osho Seeing is just clarity – open eyes, open mind, open heart. Not looking for something in particular, just ready and receptive. Osho, What is the difference between looking and seeing?

The Four Pillars of Health

The Four Pillars of Health

Osho Health is not only a physical phenomenon. That is only one of its dimensions, and one of the most superficial dimensions because basically the body is going to die — healthy or unhealthy, it is momentary. Real health has to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no […]

Meditation Is A Knack

Meditation Is A Knack

Just be, and watch . Being is not doing, and watching is also not doing. You sit silently doing nothing, witnessing whatsoever is happening. Thoughts will be moving in your mind; your body may be feeling some tension somewhere, you may have a migraine. Just be a witness. Don’t be identified with it. Watch, be a watcher on the hills, and everything else is happening in the valley. It is a knack, not an art.

This is Yours, That is Mine: The Ownership of Things Is Changing

This is Yours, That is Mine: The Ownership of Things Is Changing

How hilarious this idea of ownership is! I put up a sign on a piece of land claiming it as mine. That piece of land was already there before I was even born. Looking at my action, that piece of land must be laughing heartily, because many people before me have also put up such signs claiming it as ‘mine’ – and the piece of land buried them all!

The New Man

The New Man

The new man will not have any guilt. The new man will not have any split. The new man will have only one religion; that is awareness. The new man will have only one world, this world. Because that world is hidden behind it. This world is like a circumference, and that world is the center. And I call the whole man the holy man; then he becomes Zorba the Buddha.
