Osho Moments

Stop Talking....Let Your Love Show
Whenever you are feeling very good there is no need to bring language, mind, analysis to bring into it. There is no need to label it, because no label can be true to it. The feeling to goodness is so infinite that when you call it good you have already made it mediocre. When you feel for somebody, to say I love you is to make it profane. You have already made it rotten, mm? The word corrupts.

Just show it by your full being. Enjoy it. Let the other feel it...but don't say anything about it.

Write a Poem
Whenever you are tired, whenever you are fed up with the world - and many times one is fed up with the world, it is natural. The world is too heavy, too boring, too monotonous, too repetitive, too routine and trivial. So whenever you feel that way, the best thing is to do something creative and get involved in it. You will come out of it recreated, rejuvenated, throbbing with energy.

Poetry can be more recreative than sleep.... Just five minutes concentrated creation of a poem can refresh you more than eight hours of sleep.

What Is Meditation ?

Mind concentrates: it acts out of the past. Meditation acts in the present, out of the present. It is a pure response to the present, it is not reaction. It acts not out of conclusions, it acts seeing the existential.

Watch in your life: there is a great difference when you act out of conclusions.

You see a man, you feel attracted - a beautiful man, looks very good, looks innocent. His eyes are beautiful, the vibe is beautiful. But then the man introduces himself and he says, "I am Jew" - and you are a Christian. Something immediately clicks and there is distance: now the man is no more innocent, the man is no more beautiful. You have certain ideas about Jews. Or, he is a Christian and you are a Jew; you have certain ideas about Christians - what Christianity has done to Jews in the past, what other Christians have done to Jews in the past, how they have tortured Jews down the ages... and suddenly he is a Christian - and something immediately changes.

This is acting out of conclusions, prejudices, not looking at this man - because this man may not be the man that you think a Jew has to be... because each Jew is a different kind of man, each Hindu is a different kind of man, so is each Mohammedan.

You cannot act out of prejudices. You cannot act by categorizing people. You cannot pigeonhole people; nobody can be pigeonholed. You may have been deceived by a hundred communists, but when you meet the hundred and first communist don't go on believing in the category that you have made in your mind: that communists are deceptive - or anything. This may be a different type of man, because no two persons are alike.

Whenever you act out of conclusion, it is mind. When you look into the present and you don't allow any idea to obstruct the reality, to obstruct the fact, you just look into the fact and act out of that look, that is meditation.

"The beauty of facing life unprepared is tremendous.
Then life has a newness, a youth; then life has a flow
and freshness. Then life has so many surprises.
And when life has so many surprises
boredom never settles in you."
