“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

Nelson Mandela, the legendary South African leader, was once asked how he kept himself from hating his tormentors.

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...
