Osho Quotes

OSHODears,

I found some thought provoking quotes by Osho.

“Only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core into the other person — without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without creating “the other,” reducing the other into a thing, and without becoming addicted with the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.”

“Look deep into your heart. Listen to the still small voice within. And remember one thing: life is fulfilled only through longings, never through ambitions. Life becomes blissful only through the heart, never through the mind. Mind creates science, the heart creates religion. Mind can give you better technology, better gadgets. The heart gives you the real, ultimate values: love, bliss, truth, freedom, awareness, God. And a life without these values is valueless.”

“Judgment is ugly — it hurts people. On the one hand you go on hurting them, wounding them, and on the other hand you want their love, their respect. It is impossible. Love them, respect them, and perhaps your love and respect may help them to change many of their weaknesses, many of their failures — because love will give them new energy, a new meaning, a new strength.”

“On the one hand people will respect poverty, and on the other hand they will say, ‘Serve the poor.’ Strange! If poverty is so spiritual then the most spiritual thing will be to make every rich man, poor. Help the rich man to be poor, so he can become spiritual. Why help the poor? Do you want to destroy his spirituality? To live in abundance is the only spiritual thing in the world.”

“Because we are part of one existence, whomsoever you are hurting, you are hurting yourself in the long run. Today you may not realize it, but one day when you become more aware; then you will say, ‘My God! This wound was inflicted by me — upon myself.’ You had hurt somebody else thinking that people are different. Nobody is different. This whole existence is one, cosmic unity. Out of this understanding comes non-violence.”

“Aloneness simply means completeness. You are whole; there is no need of anybody else to complete you. So try to find out your innermost center where you are always alone, have always been alone. In life, in death — wherever you are — you will be alone. But it is so full! It is not empty; it is so full and so complete and so overflowing with all the juices of life, with all the beauties and benedictions of existence, that once you have tasted your aloneness, the pain in the heart will disappear. Instead, a new rhythm of tremendous sweetness, peace, joy, bliss, will be there.”
