notes
synopsis
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, I often wanted to ask you some questions, but after waiting for a while, I always found my questions answered by you. And at the same time I found out that all those questions were just silly questions, coming from my mind without any connection to my heart. My heart only wants to cry, and my mind only wants to know, despite any answer.
Could you please comment on how to deal with a continuous questioning mind that is not interested in any answer anyway? Or am I just a Greek donkey?
Question 2 from Purna
Beloved Osho, I have never been good at remembering my dreams. They seem to be there only in times of emotional crisis. Once or twice a year I have a 'big' dream which is more like a vision -- and that's it.
During the last years it has become worse, and now it's down to zero. Considering dreams as important for my work as a therapist, I tried hard with all kinds of methods but had no success.
Recently I made peace with it. As lots of flashes and intuitions come up in the daytime, or before I'm falling asleep, I thought this might be fine too. After yesterday's discourse where you said that to unburden the subconscious is the way to the superconscious, I started worrying and wondering again. Am I so repressive? What am I scared of that makes me incapable of remembering my dreams?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, only just now I discovered that a master-disciple relationship is really a two-way affair, in which the disciple needs to respond openly to the master in order for the master to be able to do his work.
I myself, on the contrary, have always watched passively, kept a distance and drawn my own conclusions.
Please comment.
Question 4
Beloved Osho, sitting in your presence, meditation is really at its best. If asked why, I would say that it is because your blissful presence is contagious and somehow motivates me to be as total as possible.
Beloved Osho, would you please explain again how it is possible to be in such a nice meditation when not being in your presence?
