“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

All You Need Is… Science (But with a Difference)

We humans have an intrinsic urge to seek the truth. It goes back a long way. Survival has always depended on knowing what is going on. Whether it is a plant that needs to find out where the sun is, or an animal who needs to find out where the food is, or you or...

The Mind Leading the Mind (Or the Man Who Mistook His Mind for Himself)

It’s like asking an arsonist to become the fire chief. What happens when it becomes clear that the whole world is wrong? We all know the story of the Emperor’s invisible clothing, or more seriously, what happened to Galileo when he pointed out that the Sun didn’t go around the Earth as everyone assumed. At...

Food Is Sacred

Look up the word “dieting” and what you find is: “Restricts oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight.” What a pity!
