Dance Your Way to God Chapter 3

CHAPTER 3

30 July 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[Through a translator, a visitor said he had come to Osho because he needed a friend.] Good... but coming to me is dangerous because it means going away from the personality that you have been up to now. The only way to come closer to me is to die in a certain way. Only then is one reborn. So if you really want to come close to me, physical closeness won't help. And spiritual closeness means a deep surrender ­ surrendering the mind, surrendering the intellect, surrendering logic, surrendering aristotle. Because when you surrender logic, love---OSHO NAMAN

Books I Have Loved Chapter 8

CHAPTER 8

1984 in Lao Tzu House, Rajneeshpuram, Oregon, USA

Be a Junnatha ­ a seeker. The P.S. continues. The first book is Friedrich Nietzsche's WILL TO POWER. He never published it while he was alive. It was published posthumously, and meanwhile, before it was published, many of your so-called great men had already stolen from the manuscript. Alfred Adler was one of the 'greatest' psychologists. He is one of the trinity of psychologists: Freud, Jung and Adler. He is simply a thief. Adler has stolen his whole psychology from Friedrich Nietzsche. Adler says: Man's basic instinct is the 'will---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 5

All Becoming is Illusory

8 December 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Anand means bliss, blissful, and daruma is a japanese name; a japanese form of an indian name. The original name was bodhi-dharma ­ the founder of zen. The last part of his name, dharma, became in japan, daruma; bodhidharma means awareness nature. Dharma means the ultimate nature ­ that which is already the case, that which you are, that which you are not to become. There -is no question of becoming... it is your being. And this is one of the most fundamental things to be understood: all becoming is illusory. All---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 9

I Give You a Capacity to Know

11 May 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[A new sannyasin says: I am confused ­ about everything. I cannot ask questions; there are so many.] As I see it, you have so many answers. You think that already you know much. Your confusion is not created by so many questions, but by so many answers. A question is innocent if it comes out of ignorance. It is pure... it is tremendously beautiful. When a question comes out of an already concluded answer, it is ugly and it creates confusion. A question in itself never creates a confusion because there is nothing to---OSHO NAMAN

The Ultimate Criterion is Your Heart

24 May 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

I[A sannyasin says: I find that when you tell me to do something... I guess it's a cop-out because I won't do what you say because I feel I should do the opposite of what you say because that seems to be more to the heart of my problem. It seems to work sometimes.] Sometimes it can be like that. If you feel good doing the opposite, do the opposite. The whole point is to remember what brings the feeling of blessedness to you. One should continuously go on checking inside to see whether it is bringing a well---OSHO NAMAN

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose Chapter 23

CHAPTER 23

22 July 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Anand means bliss and sandesh means a message ­ a message of bliss... and you have to become one. Walking, sitting, doing something, not doing something, remain blissful. Allow bliss to happen more and more; don't obstruct it. It is nothing to be positively achieved; only negative barriers should be removed. One needs nothing to be blissful except the readiness to surrender to it. So whatsoever you do, just carry one thing continuously inside you: that you have to be blissful in it. Even when sometimes there are clouds in life and the night---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 22

21 July 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

TUESDAY July 20th [A sannyasin who is leaving says: I would like to come back. I'm not finished here.] You are not finished. Nobody is finished here! I simply start things ­ I never finish them. You have to come back again and again. It is an eternal journey. There is a beginning but there is no end ­ and that's the beauty of it.... WEDNESDAY July 21st [A new sannyasin asked whether, on his return to the West, he should recommence the course in Bio-energetics he was involved in.] Bio-energetics is one of the right directions to work in. It is---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 15

13 July 1976 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

[A sannyasin says: I'm going to be in a place where I'll have lots of temptation to drugs and sex. I feel as though I've really developed some beautiful meditative things for myself and I feel a bit apprehensive... ] You will have to be a little alert, because when there is nothing like meditation, there is nothing to lose. But when meditation starts and something is growing, there is much to lose. The devil becomes a temptation only when God is very close by, otherwise not. The devil never goes to tempt devils ­ never. He always goes to---OSHO NAMAN
