The Inner Critic

I feel very self-critical. After social encounters I’m always thinking about what I said and what I could have said. "That’s a bad habit. Self-awareness is good, but a self-critic is not good because it is never to the point. When the moment is gone, then you criticise yourself. Awareness...

Falling Out Of Love

To fall in love is so easy. Why is it so difficult to fall out of love? So many discussions, tears, fights, fears.... I don’t want to hurt the person I’ve been with, because it’s not that there is no feeling. I’m so confused. Can you say something? Falling is...

Sex Obsession

The West seems to be obsessed with with sex? People are stuffed with endless techniques and porno images, why? It is not a question of West or East. Both are obsessed with sex -- of course, in different ways. The West is indulgent, the East is repressive, but the obsession...

Unworthy of Love

I always feel so unworthy of love. I feel this makes me keep my door closed and now my heart is suffering but I have forgotten where the door is. It is one of the crimes that has been committed against everybody everywhere in human society: you have been continuously...

Time Obsession

It’s the reason why the East conceived of history in a circular dimension, says OSHO. It reflects the repetitive cycle of birth and death. The western attitude is still time-obsessed. There are reasons behind it. Why did time become linear in the West? Because the concept of rebirth never became...

Same Sex Relationships

I find myself mostly attracted to women and very rarely deeply to a man. It bothers me a little. Sex has been called the original sin. It is neither original nor sin. Even before Adam and Eve ever ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge they were having sex,...
