Quote of the moment

Words come out of the heart, they will enter the heart, but if they come from the tongue, they will not pass beyond the ears.

Mystic expression of wisdom !!

BY OSHO

  • Get rid of the past and the future, and live here now! It is suicidal to live anywhere else than here now, because each moment that is passing is precious, so precious that you cannot get it back. Don't waste it!
 
  • Go inwards. Find your inner space, and suddenly, you will find an explosion of light, of beauty, of ecstasy -- as if suddenly thousands of roses have blossomed within you and you are full of their fragrance.
 
  • God is always joking. Look at your own life -- it is a joke! Look at other people's lives, and you will find jokes and jokes and jokes. Seriousness is illness; seriousness has nothing spiritual about it. Spirituality is laughter, spirituality is joy, spirituality is fun.
 
  • There is no failure in life. It all depends how you take things. If you are desiring too much -- you want to reach too high, and you cannot -- then there is frustration and failure. But if you are not desiring anything and you are perfectly happy wherever you are, life is moment-to-moment victory.
 
  • I would like you to accept only one prayer, and that is laughter, because when you are totally laughing you are in the present. The more you go towards laughter, the more wide and the more open, the more vulnerable, the more total, you become. Laughter has something religious. Seriousness is sick and irreligious.
 
  • I say to you, there is no other God than life, hence the question of choice does not arise at all. Live! Live totally, live passionately, live intelligently, live lovingly. Become a flame so intense, so total, that each moment starts having the flavor of eternity.
 
  • If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.So if you love a flower, let it be.Love is not about possession.Love is about appreciation.
 
  • The moment love arises in the heart, all fear disappears, light has come in and no darkness is found.
 
  • I don't say God is love, I say love is God. To me God is only a symbol and love is a reality. God is only a myth - love is the experience of millions of people. God is only a word, but love can become a dance in your heart.
 
  • The ego is a puzzle. It is something like darkness – which you can see, which you can feel, which can obstruct your way but which does not exist. It has no positivity. It is simply an absence, an absence of light. The ego does not exist – how can you surrender it? The ego is only an absence of awareness.
 
  • Discipline has its own beauty, it is not all slavery. And freedom has its own dangers and is not all beautiful. A real person is always capable of infinite discipline and infinite freedom – he is not a slave or an addict to anything.
 
  • The other creates trouble because your love is not enough. If your love is overflowing, the other will be showered by it, cleansed by it. And instead of creating trouble for you, the other can become a tremendous help, a complementary part in the organic unity of your being, and can lead you to the third stage.
 
  • Brahmacharya is not against sex. If it is against sex then sex can never disappear. Brahmacharya is a transmutation of the energy: it is not being against sex, rather it is changing the whole energy from the sex center to the higher centers. When it reaches to the seventh center of man, the sahasrar, then brahmacharya happens. If it remains in the first center, muladhar, then sex; when it reaches to the seventh center, then samadhi. The same energy moves. It is not being against it; rather, it is an art how to use it.
