“Your mind is constantly projecting ¯ projecting itself. Your mind is constantly interfering with reality, giving it a color, shape and form which is not its own. Your mind never allows you to see that which is; it allows you to see only that which it wants to see.” – Osho

Give Yourself the Best Present There Is

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? Unless we can understand what keeps us moving towards oblivion, we will never discover how to stop. It is pretty clear that our...

Going on a Real Holiday?

The itch to go on a holiday is quite a modern phenomenon. Particularly since so many of us became stressed workaholics. How can we make sure our holidays, including all the usual travel involved, are not also stressful! The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg (hālig “holy” + dæg “day”). The word...

Meditate Every Day – It Really Makes a Difference!

Regular meditation does make a difference, especially in this digital age. In a recent article for the New York Times entitled ‘You Should Meditate Every Day,’ Opinion Columnist Farhad Manjoo, a technology journalist for nearly 20 years and a tech devotee even longer, says it’s the best way he’s found to keep digital monsters at...

The Right to Disconnect

The year 2017 has brought a great bounty, not to mention relief, for employees at bigger French companies.

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...

The Day is Not Long Enough

How many minutes do you have in an hour? Or how many hours in a day? The question sounds absurd, but this is what busy people of today are wishing: “If only there were more hours in a day, or more minutes in an hour, I would have accomplished my task.” More and more people...

Cool the Brain, Work with Hands

It is not uncommon to come across a post like this updated by the busy, high-tech guys, “I feel like I have too many thoughts running through my head. It makes me feel like my body can’t keep up with my thought process. I’m too exhausted. I get depressed when I can’t get something done...

Silence Shared in Words

For a few years we have used as a tag-line for Osho’s talks the phrase ‘silence shared in words’, indicating toward something that appears at first glance to be a contradiction, but in fact can help to understand that these talks are something very different from intellectual statements, academic lectures, or anything else that our...

Learning in the Gap

Learning in the Gap

The rational mind is trained to divide everything into to separate parts and live in perpetual denial of the opposite. But by denying the whole we divide our energy and live in anxiety and tension. One of the major contributions of Osho to the rational mind is bridging the gap between two seemingly opposites —...

The Mind Leading the Mind

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.
