“This paper is not a mere newspaper; it is a messenger. So you have to keep alert that it beats with my heart, that it keeps in tune with me, that it does not lose contact with my vision. If you simply want it to be a newspaper, then my name should be removed from it. Then you can collect all kinds of stupid things that are happening around the world – murders, suicides, wars, and certainly you will be selling better…. Our concern is not sensational, but to spread the message. And anything that you can find in the world happening which supports the message, choose it, but the message remains your criterion…. Now, you have to use your ability of expression to make that vision available to as many people as possible. That will be your creativity.”

Osho, The Last Testament, Vol. 3, Chapter #24

Give Yourself the Best Present There Is

What is driving this insane obsession to keep moving round and round in circles, like a complete ring of ants on a plate, just following the ant in front till they drop?

When the Shoe Fits, the Foot Is Forgotten

At the airport check-in counter, a VIP was yelling at the gate guard, ” How dare you to stop me? You don’t know who I am!” One hears this angry outburst often when someone feels insulted or neglected. Why this constant need to reaffirm yourself that you are somebody? People need continuous feedback from others...

Whatever You Do, You Do It to Yourself

Recently I came across a great insight of Gautama the Buddha which, if practiced,  can bring a lot of peace and happiness to the world. The insight goes like this… “It is better to do nothing than to do what is wrong. For whatever you do, you do to yourself.” This maxim could be a...

What Is Wrong in Being Wild?

Only a whirlwind of consciousness like Osho can ask this question: what’s wrong in being wild. Never before in the history of humanity was meditation associated with wildness. And never before in this world, civilized humans desperately needed to shed their conditioning and let the repressed emotions erupt like a volcano as they need today....

Understanding Tension

The moment we utter the word tension, everybody understands it as a mental stress; something to be avoided. But this is not the original connotation of this word. The word tension is originally part of the world of physics. All physical objects that are in contact can exert forces on each other. We give these...

Try to Be a Listener, Just Hearing Is Not Enough

I have heard Osho say that if you listen to the birds in the morning you will be able to listen to people throughout the day. Why has listening become so important these days?  Because everybody exclaims,  “Nobody listens to me!” Whether it is a child or a parent; a teacher or student, everyone feels...

Talking to the Sky

Talking to the sky looks like madness. We have seen mentally derailed people roaming around, talking to nobody,  and we feel sorry for them. But wait a minute.  If done consciously, this can be a wonderful remedy to regain your emotional balance and feel relaxed.  For centuries Christian believers have been going to church and...

Relax into No-Thingness

Watch the gap between two things, two breaths, two thoughts… Shrini was a  brilliant young man with many skills, but somehow he could not complete his studies of engineering. He dropped out in the last year. And once he lost his confidence it was very difficult for him to gear it up again. Parents and...
