“The fear is that if the child is left unconditioned from the very beginning he will be so intelligent, he will be so alert and aware, that his whole life style will be of rebellion. And nobody wants rebels; everybody wants obedient people.” – Osho

It’s the Conditioning That Kills, Stupid!

It is so clear that if we have been conditioned to fight against ourselves, to be at war with our own nature, how can we not also be against the nature of our neighbors, or against nature in general? Unless this changes, we are bound to live in conflict with ourselves, with others, and with the natural world around us.

Black Lives Matter More – Part 1

“A person who needs to be superior to feel good is a person who is carrying a volcano within him. A person who has to be superior to feel happy is suffering deep down from an inferiority complex. Only an inferior person thinks in terms of superiority. A real person, an authentic person, is neither superior nor inferior. He simply is – unique; nobody is lower than him and nobody is higher than him.”

Black Lives Matter More – Part 2

“So, in the lifetime of each of you, the decisive moment is going to come. Either man commits suicide or seeing that this is an absolute absurdity, man changes his consciousness.

Befriending Myself

I was asked to write about “What I do.” A good question really. And one that makes me think. Not like at a party when people ask me what I do and I roll out the ready-made answer: “Oh I’m a therapist” or “I’m a hypnotherapist,” or sometimes, “I’m an OSHO Therapist.”  As if that...

Listen to the Meaning, Not to the Words

Buddha used to ask his disciples to do a certain meditation: ‘’Go to the street and watch everybody passing by, coming and going on the street. See exactly what is happening. Don’t listen to their words because they are very cunning, they have become very deceptive. Listen to the meaning.” It is hard to believe that...

Between Yesterday and Tomorrow Is Today

Here at the OSHO International Meditation Resort, we have a novel way of greeting the New Year. When the first ray of January sparkles and people meet each other, they say, “Happy Now Here.” Those who hear it for the first time stop in their tracks – did they hear aright? And in a flash,...

Why Does Poverty Exist?

The moment we say charity, we are reminded of groups like the Rotary Club, the Lions Club, and other such institutions involved in serving the poor and the needy. Yet we never think of doing charity to rich people, the idea seems preposterous. The very fact that charity is associated with poverty puts a question...

Healing the Wounds of Terror

There always seems to be one more test. If you have a headache and seek a medical opinion, you will be made to go through all kinds of pathological tests, not to mention a number of scans, till the doctors find out what is wrong with you. Eventually they may succeed in suppressing the symptoms...
