[A sannyasin says: I'm very lazy and I'm not doing anything to be more aware. I'm unconscious a lot of the time... most of the day. I come to the discourses and there's something, but the rest of the time I'm not doing anything to be aware.] There is no need to do anything ­ just remain relaxed. Enjoy whatsoever you are doing. Eating ­ enjoy eating. Walking ­ enjoy walking. Sitting ­ enjoy sitting. Listening ­ enjoy listening. Just make every move a delight, and remain relaxed. The very idea that you have to do something---OSHO NAMAN

[Osho asks a sannyasin how she is, and she replies: I don't know!] That's the right answer to everything! Just this morning I was reading about one zen master. When he came to meet his own master, the master asked him, 'What have you been doing up to now?' He said, 'I have been travelling and searching and seeking.' The master asked, 'Do you know what you are searching for... what you are travelling for?' He said, 'I don't know!' The master laughed loudly and said, 'That's---OSHO NAMAN

Prem means love and gandha means fragrance ­ fragrance of love. And that is the highest possibility of consciousness. It is just like a tree. First it is a seed, then it is a tree, then it flowers, and then the fragrance is spread to the winds... offered to god. Many people exist at the stage of seed ­ then their life remains just sexual. They know only one rut. Their whole life remains obsessed with sex. Even those who are against sex, they remain obsessed---OSHO NAMAN

Neeraj agyana. This means 'a cloud of unknowing'. Have you ever heard of a christian mystic treatise, 'the cloud of unknowing'? It is one of the most beautiful books ever written.

Neeraj means cloud, agyana means unknowing God is known through a sort of unknowing. God is not---OSHO NAMAN

Sharanananda. It means bliss that comes through surrender, bliss that comes through trust. Sharanananda means one who has absolutely relaxed in a total let-go, and who is no more projecting his own ideas. Whatsoever god's will, he accepts. He becomes just a vehicle. He says 'yes' to god, and there is no resistance, no conflict. He cooperates with god... just as if somebody is floating with the river ­ not even swimming, not making any effort on his own; just---OSHO NAMAN

Prem means love, nisargam means natural, spontaneous, effortless ­ spontaneous love. And that is going to be your path. So just make it a point to remember that there are a few things which cannot be done by effort. Love is one of those things, sleep is another. You cannot do anything to bring sleep. You can simply wait... it comes. If you do anything, you will disturb. The very effort will become a hindrance. There is a certain law; hypnotists call it 'the law of the reverse---OSHO NAMAN

Deva means divine and barakha means rainshower ­ divine rainshower. And that's how the whole life is ­ a divine rainshower ­ and every moment god is showering. We just need to be receptive, we need to be open, we need to be porous, so that we can absorb god. To become a sannyasin is to become a sponge. Ego makes one very hard, nonporous... and sannyas is surrender. So surrender your hardness to me, and become soft, receptive, open, vulnerable. There are reasons---OSHO NAMAN

Deva means divine, ashva bodhi means horse sense. And it is of great value to understand what horse sense is. Man is not as sensible as horses; man has lost all sensibility. Horses still live in the present ­ man has started living in the future. The moment you start living in the future, you lose horse sense. The animal exists herenow. He does not plan his life as a deferred payment system. He does not bother about the results. He is not much concerned about the goal ­ his whole concern is the---OSHO NAMAN

[A sannyasin asks about her relationship which she thought was very open, but her boyfriend recently said he was pretending sometimes, and he has other desires. She feels very sick about this.] I understand. That's why people have completely forgotten what a open relationship is. They have become closed... they have become zombies. And that's why all the charm in life has disappeared. In a closed relationship, you go on pretending hut you never say. You feel---OSHO NAMAN

Because of christmas eve I am giving you this name: christo prem. Prem means love; love of christ. And christ is not a person. When the personality disappears, when the ego disappears, when the sense of 'I' disappears, christ is born. Every time somebody reaches into his innermost core, christ is born again. It is not a historical thing that happened once and then stopped. Krishna is also a Christ and Buddha too. Christ is a state. It has nothing to do with Jesus in particular ­ Jesus is one of the---OSHO NAMAN
