OSHO On Quite Mind

www.theidproject.org

OSHO,
How can one get out of the trap the mind creates of never being quite blissful in the moment, and being patient, letting the grass grow by itself? I’m always wanting to move faster, to push the river, and missing the beauty of it taking me in its own time. Would you please comment?

IT IS ONE OF THE ETERNAL questions. The East has come up with something very close to the truth. There are religions born in India and religions born outside India; the religions born outside all believe in one life — that is, seventy years. Naturally, one is in a hurry; one has to be in a hurry — such a small life and so much to do, so much to experience, so much to explore. That’s why the Western mind is speedy, wanting to do everything faster and faster, quickly, because his conception of life is too small. You cannot blame him.

OSHO Quote On Knowledge

01-308

“So always remember, whatsoever I say to you, you can take it in two ways. You can simply take it on my authority, “Because I say so, it must be true” — then you will suffer, then you will not grow. Whatsoever I say, listen to it, try to understand it, implement it in your life, see how it works, and then come to your own conclusions. They may be the same, they may not be. They can never be exactly the same because you have a different personality, a unique being. Whatsoever I am saying is my own. It is bound to be in deep ways rooted in me. You may come to similar conclusions, but they cannot be exactly the same. So my conclusions should not be made your conclusions. You should try to understand me, you should try to learn, but you should not collect knowledge from me, you should not collect conclusions from me. Then your mindbody will grow.”

OSHO On Religious Warfare

education-portal.com

There has never been any peace. There have been only two periods in history: the period we know as war, and the period we call peace, which is a cover up – in reality it should be called preparation for another war. The whole history consists only of two things: war and preparation for war. And you are asking me, “Since peace was officially restored to the world at the end of World War Two, what have the politicians been doing?”

A Zen Story:
Joshu, the Zen master, asked a new monk in the monastery, ‘Have I seen you before?’
The new monk replied, ‘No sir.’
Joshu said, ‘Then have a cup of tea.’
Joshu then turned to another monk, ‘Have I seen you here before?
The second monk said, ‘Yes sir, of course you have.’
Joshu said, ‘Then have a cup of tea.’
Later the managing monk of the monastery asked Joshu, ‘How is it you make the same offer of tea to any reply?’
At this Joshu shouted, ‘Manager, are you still here?’
The manager replied, ‘Of course, Master.’
Joshu said, ‘Then have a cup of tea.’

Osho On Astrology

www.astrorrachita.in

In the name of astrology, ninety-nine percent of astrologers are only bluff. Only one percent know that astrology is a vast subject – so vast that someone can only enter into it hesitatingly. The astrology I am talking about is of much depth. Something essential between your life and the universe is connected, is in a rhythmic harmony. We are not separate or isolated but joined together in an organic way. Life is a whole. Whatever is happening anywhere in the universe also affects man and vice versa. If we can understand this properly, there is no need to live encaged within ego and pride. Your ego is not, but the cosmos is. Very powerful forces are operating, and your ego is absolutely insignificant. You are an integral part of this big world.

OSHO On Cause And Effect

CD25_137

I will tell you one of the deepest laws of life. You may not have thought about it at all. You have heard – the whole of science depends on it – that cause and effect is the base. You create the cause and the effect follows. Life is a causal link. You put the seed in the soil and it will sprout. If the cause is there, then the tree will follow. The fire is there: you put your hand in it and it will burn. The cause is there and the effect will follow. You take poison and you will die.

And around that subtle wound in the psyche arises a disease in the body corresponding to it. That’s what cancer is: That’s why cancer seems to be incurable. There is no way to cure it from the body side. It can be cured only from the mind side because basically it arises there.

OSHO On Suicide

CD28_845

“There is a deep desire in everyone to commit suicide for the simple reason, that life seems to be meaningless. People go on living, not because they love life, they go on living just because they are afraid to commit suicide. There is a desire to; and in many ways they do commit suicide. Monks and nuns have committed psychological suicide, they have renounced life. And these suicidal people have dominated humanity for centuries. They have condemned everything that is beautiful.
