MY APPROACH IS TOTAL. I don’t teach you to choose. I simply say: whatsoever is the case, THE INTELLIGENT PERSON WILL MAKE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL out of it. The unintelligent person suffers. If he has money he suffers because money brings worries; he does not enjoy the music that money can bring, the dance that money can bring, the painting. If he has money, he does not go to the Himalayas for a rest, to meditate and to sing and to shout in the valleys and to talk with the stars. He worries, loses his sleep, loses his appetite — he chooses the wrong when he has money. And this man, if somehow he becomes poor, by God’s grace if he becomes poor, then he suffers poverty. Then he is continuously worried that “I don’t have this and I don’t have that.” You have POVERTY! Enjoy it!
I am creating here: a world of love. Love is its foundation.Become more and more loving… not for any particular reason.
Start enjoying the very phenomenon of love. Share whatsoever you can share. Don’t be miserly, don’t hoard, because the more you give, the more you have. The more you give, the more you get; the less you give, the less you have. And if you don’t give at all, you have simply an empty shell, hollow; there is nothing inside you.
Depression – The very word is meaningful –
it says something is being pressed;
that is the meaning of depressed.
You are pressing something inside,
and when anger is pressed too much
it becomes sadness.
A meditator needs no personal guidance. A meditator, on the contrary, needs only one thing: the atmosphere of meditation. He needs other meditators; he needs to be surrounded by other meditators. Because whatever goes on happening within us is not only within us, it affects people who are close by. In this communion people are at different stages of meditation. To meditate with these people, just to sit silently with these people, and you will be pulled more and more towards your own intrinsic potentiality.”Osho
Accept yourself, love yourself, you are God′s creation. God′s signature is on you and you are special, unique. Nobody else has ever been like you and nobody else will ever be like you; you are simply unique, incomparable. Accept this, love this, celebrate this – and in that very celebration you will start seeing the uniqueness of the others, the incomparable beauty of the others. Love is possible only when there is a deep acceptance of oneself, the other, the world. Acceptance creates the milieu in which love grows, the soil in which love blooms.
Step 1: Daily Watching
“Start being aware with day-to-day, routine actions, and while you are doing your routine actions, remain relaxed.
“There is no need to be tense. When you are washing your floor, what is the need to be tense? Or when you are cooking the food, what is the need to be tense? There is not a single time in life that requires your tension. It is just your unawareness and your impatience.
Peace talks, peace agreements, peace movements… Why is it, although there is a deep longing for peace in the world, every day, wars are being waged? And why, although so many people long for peace in their lives, does peace seem to be an impossibility even on a personal level? In this series of talks, Osho explains how peace can only become a reality when rigid religious practices and political ideologies are dropped, and an awakened consciousness takes their place. The key to finding peace is transformation, both outer and inner, one person at a time, and in this book Osho indicates how through meditation this can be achieved.
Don’t be too much concerned about money, because that is the greatest distraction against happiness. And the irony of ironies is that people think they will be happy when they have money. Money has nothing to do with happiness. If you are happy and you have money, you can use it for happiness. If you are unhappy and you have money, you will use that money for more unhappiness. Because money is simply a neutral force.
