Osho’s words of wisdom

Osho-Z.1Many years ago, I had the opportunity to travel to Poona to Rajneesh Dham when he was still physically present on the planet.

The amazing man continues to inspire millions of people with the way he thought and spoke bare facts defying major religious systems.

He boldly rubbished most Dogmas saying that they killed human intelligence.

This page is dedicated to Osho – one of the greatest contemporary philosphers.

Live every moment in life – KING SIZE.

“Life begins where fear ends.”

————————————————————————————

“The less people know, the more stubbornly they know it.”

———————————————————————————–

“The pain is not to make you sad, remember. That is where people go on missing (the point). The pain is just to make you more alert, because people become alert only when the arrow goes deep into their heart and wounds them.”

————————————————————————————-

“There is no need of any competition with anybody. You are yourself, and as you are, you are perfectly good. Accept yourself.”

————————————————————————————-

“Whatever you feel, you become. It is your responsibility.”

————————————————————————————-

“Nobody has the power to take two steps together; you can take only one step at a time.”

————————————————————————————-

“A smart man knows what to say and a wise man knows whether to say it or not.”

————————————————————————————-

“A little foolishness, enough to enjoy life and a little wisdom to avoid the errors, that will do.”

————————————————————————————-

“Your whole idea about yourself is borrowed– borrowed from those who have no idea of who they are themselves.”

————————————————————————————-

Courage – Living life dangerously.

“They say: Think twice before you jump. I say – Jump first and then think as much as you want!”

————————————————————————————-

“Courage Is a love affair with the unknown.”

————————————————————————————-

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.

Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.”

————————————————————————————-

“The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around.”

————————————————————————————-

“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny – he or she has something to fulfill, some message that has to be delivered, some work that has to be completed. You are not here accidentally – you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.”

————————————————————————————-

“You need power only to do something harmful. Otherwise love is enough and compassion is enough.”

————————————————————————————-

“Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don’t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.”

————————————————————————————

“My whole love and respect is for the person who accepts himself totally, as he is. He has courage. He has courage to face the whole pressure of the society which is bent upon splitting him into divisions — into good and bad, into saint and sinner. He is really a brave, courageous being who stands against the whole history of man, of morality, and declares to the skies his reality, whatever it is.”

————————————————————————————-

“In love the other is important.  In lust you are important.”

————————————————————————————-

“Wherever you are afraid, try to explore, and you will find death hiding somewhere behind. All fear is of death. Death is the only fear source.”

————————————————————————————-

“Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in a library. Questioners sooner or later end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers.

And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder.”

————————————————————————————-

“Respect life,revere life.there is nothing more holy than life,nothing more divine than life.”

———————————————————————————-

“Intelligence comes from meditation, intelligence comes from rebellion, intelligence does not come from memory”

———————————————————————————-

“There is great difference between trust and belief. Trust is personal, Belief is social.”

———————————————————————————-

“To come to know that nothing is good, nothing is bad, is a turning point; it is a conversion. You start looking in; the outside reality loses meaning. The social reality is a fiction, a beautiful drama; you can participate in it, but then you don’t take it seriously. It is just a role to be played; play it as beautifully, as efficiently, as possible. But don’t take it seriously, it has nothing of the ultimate in it.”

———————————————————————————-

“You will find meaning in life only if you create it.It is a poetry to be composed. It is a song to be sung.It is a dance to be danced.”

——————————————————————————

“Wherever you feel death, feel it. Don’t escape. Death is beautiful; death is the greatest mystery, more mysterious than life. Through life you can gain the world, the futile world- meaningless, worthless. Through death you can gain the eternal. Death is the door.”

——————————————————————————

“It’s not a question of learning much. On the contrary. It’s a question of UNLEARNING much.”

——————————————————————————

“Truth is not to be found outside. No teacher, no scripture can give it to you. It is inside you and if you wish to attain it, seek your own company. Be with yourself. ”

——————————————————————————

Life is intelligence. Only man has become intelligent. Man has damaged the natural flow of life.

Except in man, there is no unintelligence. Have you ever seen a bird you can call stupid? Have you ever seen an animal you can call idiotic? No, such things happen only to man. Something has gone wrong. Man’s intelligence has been damaged, corrupted, has been crippled.

————————————————————————–

Intelligence is naturally rebellious. Intelligence cannot be forced into any servitude. Intelligence is very assertive, individual. Intelligence cannot be converted into a mechanical imitation. People have to be converted to carbon copies; their originality has to be destroyed, otherwise all the nonsense that has existed on the earth would be impossible.

You need a leader because first you have to be made unintelligent – otherwise there would be no need for any leader. Why should you follow anybody?
