About OSHO Times
The OSHO Times is an online magazine that explores what is happening in our contemporary world and demonstrates how Osho’s insights can help us to better understand the basis of these events. This enables us to see what our options are for building a more intelligent, creative world rather than the destructive one we are currently living in.
That we are living in a time of crisis is evident:
Times of crisis are both dangerous and immensely important. They are dangerous for those who have no courage to explore new dimensions of life. They are bound to disintegrate into different kinds of madness, because their minds were made by the society. Now the society is disintegrating, the mind cannot remain; its roots are in the society. It is constantly nourished by the society. Now that nourishment is disappearing. – Osho
When everything is in chaos, nothing is static, nothing is secure – nobody knows what is going to happen the next moment – in such a chaotic moment you are free, you can change. You can attain the innermost core of your being. – Osho
While reading Osho’s words it is essential to understand the following:
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 mind-body will grow. – Osho
