Life is a flux - OSHO

I am here to shatter all illusions. Yes, it will irritate you, it will annoy you-that’s my way of functioning and working. I will sabotage you from your very roots! Unless you are totally destroyed as a mind, there is no hope for you.

Discipline has been misinterpreted. People have been telling others to discipline their life, to do this, not to do that. Thousands of shoulds and should-nots have been imposed on man, and when a man lives with thousands of shoulds and should-nots he cannot be creative. He is a prisoner, everywhere he will come across a wall.
The creative person has to dissolve all shoulds and should-nots. He needs freedom and space, vast space, he needs the whole sky and all the stars, only then can his innermost spontaneity start growing.

So remember, my meaning of discipline is not that of any ten commandments, I am not giving you any discipline, I am simply giving you an insight how to remain learning and never become knowledgeable. Your discipline has to come from your very heart, it has to be yours-and there is a great difference.

When somebody else gives you the discipline it can never fit you, it will be like wearing somebody else’s clothes. Either they will be too loose or too tight, and you will always feel a little bit silly in them.

Mohammed has given a discipline to the Mohammedans, it may have been good for him, but it cannot be good for anybody else. Buddha has given a discipline to millions of Buddhists; it may have been good for him, but it cannot be good for anybody else. A discipline is an individual phenomenon; whenever you borrow it you start living according to set principles, dead principles. And life is never dead; life is constantly changing each moment. Life is a flux

One has to be alert to, watchful of, each situation and its nuances, and one has to respond to the situation according to the moment, not according to any readymade answers given by others.

Do you see the stupidity of humanity? Five thousand years ago, Manu gave a discipline to the Hindus and they are still following it. Three thousand years ago Moses gave a discipline to the Jews and they are still following it. Five thousand years ago Adinatha gave his discipline to the Jainas and they are still following it. The whole world is being driven crazy by these disciplines! They are out of date; they should have been buried long long ago. You are carrying corpses and those corpses are stinking. And when you live surrounded by corpses, what kind of life can you have?

I teach you the moment and the freedom of the moment and the responsibility of the moment. One thing may be right this moment and may become wrong the next moment. Don’t try to be consistent, otherwise you will be dead. Only dead people are consistent. Try to be alive, with all its inconsistencies, and live each moment without any reference to the past, without any reference to the future either. Live the moment in the context of the moment, and your response will be total. And that totality has beauty and that totality is creativity. Then whatsoever you do will have a beauty a beauty of its own.

Always go on falling into the watcher-OSHO

Before I know it my watcher turns into my judger. What to do?

Osho- Don’t judge it. If your watcher becomes a judger, okay. Don’t judge the judger- watch it. If again the judger comes, watch it. Always go on falling back on the watcher, don’t be defeated by the judger. 

And don’t be disturbed. It is not a question that you have to not judge. If you force it you will not be happy, you will be suppressed. And whatsoever you will do, the judger will be there, no matter how you force, suppress. No! Release it! If a thought comes, and another thought follows and becomes a judgment, watch the judgment also. Always go on falling into the watcher, that’s the whole thing.

If again the judge comes, let it come. Don’t be afraid. You are always free to become a watcher again. The whole method of watching is not to be deceived and not to be distracted by the judger. Let it be there, there is no condemnation about it. What can you do if the judger comes? What can you do? There is nothing to do.

You can again become a watcher. Let it go on and on. The judger is going to be lost somewhere, and then the watcher will be centered. It is going to be a long process, because you have always been helping the judger to come in. for many lives, for thousands of years, you have always been getting identified with the judger.  So the judger does not know that you have changed your mind. It will still be coming for a few years.

It depends on you. If you go on falling to the watcher, sooner or later, the judger will understand that it is no more needed, an unwelcome guest. It will knock at your door a few times, but the knock will become feebler and feebler and feebler. One day, seeing that you are no more interested in it, the judger disappears.
You cannot suppress it.

Whenever Love happens, you feel very nervous-OSHO

Whenever Love happens, you feel very nervous because you are moving in the unknown. You are moving into something which you cannot manipulate, something which is beyond you, in which you can be lost-lost forever. It may be a point of no return and you never come back. That’s what is happening.

You asked me “recently, sitting before you, I have become bathed in sweat. What is happening??? The whole personality: shivering, afraid, sweating, nervous. A death is happening! That’s what I mean when I say love is happening.

Love and death are two names of the same phenomenon. On the edge of the love once feels so scared that one can be absorbed into it and there may be no possibility to come back. It is death, dawning before you. Love is death, and if you have known love as death you have opened a secret chamber of life. Then you will know death also as love. Then death becomes God.

How to Love with Awareness and Relate Without Fear -OSHO

OSHO VIDEO about How to Love with Awareness and Relate Without Fear

"Love should be a reality in your life, not just a poem, not just a dream. It has to be actualized. It is never too late to experience love for the first time.
Learn to love. Very few people know how to love. They all know that love is needed, they all know that without love life is meaningless, but they don't know how to love." -- Osho
