CHAPTER 4

4 September 1977 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Osho explains the meaning of veet nisadha: beyond no, beyond negation.... Drop no-saying; become more and more of a yea-sayer.] Yes, say yes to life. And if one is aware, then one will be surprised that many times we unnecessarily say no... and we harm nobody except ourselves by saying that. No is fear-oriented; yes is love. When you say yes, you are in a loving mood; whenever you are in a loving mood, you say yes ­ they both go together. When you say no, you reject life, and when you reject life, life rejects you. Then one becomes more---OSHO NAMAN

[Osho explains the meaning of prem nutan: new, fresh love. Love is synonymous with life. If you can be true to love then there is no need for any other religion. Love is the highest religion possible and it takes you tot the ultimate goal. When there is flow, life has a glow. When there is no flow, life is just so-so. When you have lived this moment, drop it, it is meaningless. Dropping the experience each moment is what makes life continuously flowing. [The new sannyasin asks if there is any value in making descriptions of what happens---OSHO NAMAN

[A sannyasin says his wife, a non-sannyasin, wants to study psychology.] Where can she study psychology better than here? Just tell her!... Anywhere else you can study psychology as a dead subject ­ here it is alive. Here people are opening up, growing, and that's what psychology basically is: the science of the soul. The western psychology is yet not worthy enough of being called psychology. It is still struggling with behaviour ­ not what man is, but how he acts, and that too the western psychology decides by the behaviour of the---OSHO NAMAN

29 September 1977 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Prem means love, madhumaya means sweet as honey. And love is the only sweetness; everything else is bitter. We can even tolerate bitter things if there is a little mixture of love in them; otherwise life becomes unbearable. Life is unbearable; it is only love that makes it bearable. Life in itself is meaningless ­ it is love that brings meaning to it. So the more love, the more meaning, the more love, the more sweetness, the more love, the more joy. And love exists ordinarily in a very very small quantity. Ninety-nine percent is poison---OSHO NAMAN

28 September 1977 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[A sannyasin who is leaving has difficulty surrendering to the commune. He asks Osho to decide whether he leaves or not... ] Then I can just direct you what to do. Then there is no problem.... The problem arises only when you start doing your own thing, and then you fall out of tune with the things here. Here the only way to be is to be totally in tune; otherwise you suffer and the whole community suffers. You will not feel happy and people will not feel happy with you. So here you have to dissolve... and then there is no problem at all.---OSHO NAMAN

Anand vipal ­ bliss moment. And remember that the moment is the penetration of eternity into time. The moment is not part of time; the moment is something that comes beyond time. In fact, the real moment is between two moments of time. It is just as these two fingers are there and there is a gap. One second passes; another has not come yet, is just coming. Between the two is the vipal, the gap between two time moments. And that gap is from eternity. It has not time in it... it is timelessness. That is where one finds bliss, that is from---OSHO NAMAN

[Osho tells an initiate to close her eyes and to feel a sound arising from her heart. Let yourself be possessed by the sound. If it starts coming ­ any sound ­ allow it. If you start saying it loudly, go with it; go into it. Osho then explains the meaning of prem bhajan ­ worship through sound. Bhajan is offering god your heart's song... ] And it is there ­ you have just to cooperate with it and it will come. A thousand and one songs will burst out in you. Everybody carried the possibility more or less, but your predominant character is---OSHO NAMAN

25 September 1977 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[A sannyasin has brought her son because she is worried about the way he doesn't eat, which may be causing bronchitis, and how he relates with other children.] What is the way? I think the problem is more with you than with him! He seems to be perfectly okay! You seem to be too worried about him. Sometimes even that can create tension in his mind ­ if you are too worried. Take every care, but worry is not care. Certainly you love him and you have to take care, but worry is not the way to care. Worry is very destructive. It is destructive---OSHO NAMAN

24 September 1977 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[A sannyasin newly returned says: I'm pretty shaky but I feel good.] One is shaky if one is feeling good! People don't feel so shaky when they are not feeling good. People are acquainted with that state of not feeling good. They are perfectly familiar with it; they are not shaky. When you really feel good you feel shaky. Feeling shaky means that you cannot settle with your past. Something new is happening or is going to happen and one feels expectant and that creates shakiness. It is good. Don't settle with the past again... because we---OSHO NAMAN

[A sannyasin asks how to make his hobby of painting a meditation.] Art is meditation. Any activity becomes meditation if you are lost in it. So don't just remain a technician. If you are just a technician then painting will never become meditation. You have to be crazily into it, madly into it, completely lost, not knowing where you are going, not knowing what you are doing, not knowing who you are. This state of not-knowing will bring meditation. Let it happen. The painting should not be painted but only allowed to happen. And I don't---OSHO NAMAN
