“This paper is not a mere newspaper; it is a messenger. So you have to keep alert that it beats with my heart, that it keeps in tune with me, that it does not lose contact with my vision. If you simply want it to be a newspaper, then my name should be removed from it. Then you can collect all kinds of stupid things that are happening around the world – murders, suicides, wars, and certainly you will be selling better…. Our concern is not sensational, but to spread the message. And anything that you can find in the world happening which supports the message, choose it, but the message remains your criterion…. Now, you have to use your ability of expression to make that vision available to as many people as possible. That will be your creativity.”

Osho, The Last Testament, Vol. 3, Chapter #24

Don’t Just Sit There!

21 min read "So I never tell people to begin with just sitting.
"Begin from where beginning is easy, otherwise you will begin to feel many things unnecessarily – things that are not there.
"If you begin with sitting, you will feel much disturbance inside. The more you try to just sit, the more disturbance will be felt; you will become aware only of your insane mind and nothing else. It will create depression, you will feel frustrated. You will not feel blissful; rather, you will begin to feel that you are insane. And sometimes you may really go insane."

Give Yourself the Best Present There Is

6 min read What is driving this insane obsession to keep moving round and round in circles, like a complete ring of ants on a plate, just following the ant in front till they drop?

When the Shoe Fits, the Foot Is Forgotten

2 min read At the airport check-in counter, a VIP was yelling at the gate guard, ” How dare you to stop me?

Talking to the Sky

2 min read Talking to the sky looks like madness. We have seen mentally derailed people roaming around, talking to nobody,  and we feel sorry for them. But wait a minute.  If done consciously, this can be a wonderful remedy to regain your emotional balance and feel relaxed. For centuries Christian believers have been going to church and...
