“Your mind is constantly projecting ¯ projecting itself. Your mind is constantly interfering with reality, giving it a color, shape and form which is not its own. Your mind never allows you to see that which is; it allows you to see only that which it wants to see.” – Osho

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? Unless we can understand what keeps us moving towards oblivion, we will never discover how to stop. Would a little wisdom help? Osho...

Memory Is a Problem

Memory is said to be a vital instrument in learning. Although memory starts with perception, it is encoded and stored with the help of neurons. Once memories are ‘encoded’, they are transferred to either the long-term memory or the short-term memory. This transfer is a part of memory storage, which is the second step in...

Going on a holiday?

Summertime is holiday time and travel time too. This itch of going on a holiday is quite modern since people became workaholics and everything they do or don’t do creates stress for them. The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg (hālig “holy” + dæg “day”). The word originally referred only to special...

Man Is Always in Constant Anxiety Learn How to Trust and Be More Centered

Have You Have Seen Any of Those Documentaries on the Origins of Planet Earth from about Four and a Half Thousand Million Years Ago?  It is simply an astounding story of an initial fireball, subjected to a huge planetary collision, then meteorite bombardments, the arrival of literally oceans of water, the origin of primitive living...

The Right to Disconnect

The year 2017 has brought a great bounty, not to mention relief, for employees at bigger French companies. A new employment law has come into effect from January 1st, stating that French workers will have the “right to disconnect” outside of work hours. The French government realized that the health and well-being of their workers was...

Listen to the Meaning, Not to the Words

Buddha used to ask his disciples to do a certain meditation: ‘’Go to the street and watch everybody passing by, coming and going on the street. See exactly what is happening. Don’t listen to their words because they are very cunning, they have become very deceptive. Listen to the meaning.” It is hard to believe that...

The Day is Not Long Enough

How many minutes do you have in an hour? Or how many hours in a day? The question sounds absurd, but this is what busy people of today are wishing: “If only there were more hours in a day, or more minutes in an hour, I would have accomplished my task.” More and more people...

Cool the Brain, Work with Hands

It is not uncommon to come across a post like this updated by the busy, high-tech guys, “I feel like I have too many thoughts running through my head. It makes me feel like my body can’t keep up with my thought process. I’m too exhausted. I get depressed when I can’t get something done...

Silence Shared in Words

For a few years we have used as a tag-line for Osho’s talks the phrase ‘silence shared in words’, indicating toward something that appears at first glance to be a contradiction, but in fact can help to understand that these talks are something very different from intellectual statements, academic lectures, or anything else that our...

Learning in the Gap

Learning in the Gap

One of the major contributions of Osho to the rational mind is bridging the gap between two seemingly opposites — like love and hate, work and relaxation, the outer and the inner and so on. The rational mind is trained to divide them and live in perpetual denial of the opposite. But by denying it...
