Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1 from Ashok Bharti
Beloved Osho, you heard my prayer and called me to you on the 8th of August.
As I entered your room, I experienced you as a large ocean, an emptiness that I have never experienced before. I saw your beautiful being, and I was immersed in that emptiness and beauty. I felt that the ocean's emptiness was flowing into me from you.
After that day, new songs and melodies are coming from that emptiness of yours, and I don't know anything.
Beloved Osho, please explain how this can happen so easily in the master's presence. Is it so simple? It doesn't feel possible for me to exist in this life without having had that meeting -- is that so? I feel that such a feeling might not have otherwise happened to me for many lives.
Please explain the meeting of the master and the disciple.
Question 2
Beloved Osho, I wonder whether as your disciple I can be utterly selfish, to find my way to enlightenment whatever I am doing, or do I have to fulfill a certain function for you to spread your vision?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, these days here with you are certainly the most beautiful. Doing nothing, so much time to sit silently in the garden, in my room, and watch the trees dancing in the wind, sparkling in the sun... So much beauty.
My mind is finally getting used to the idea of being turned off. I am so peaceful, so happy. Now, today, again going inside on this path of silence, with thoughts drifting away and emptiness surrounding me, I am aware of a tension inside me as if I am holding on to something.
My Beloved Master, what am I holding on to, and how do I let go?
Question 4 from Maitri
Beloved Osho, I seem to be so unconscious so much of the time, so very unaware and just simply involved in life and loving living it.
When you speak about the totality and intensity of the search, and how nothing else really matters, and how important it is to let nothing become a distraction, I fear I will never manage it.
In my heart I feel nothing else does matter, yet I am not living in this awareness all the time and in every situation.
Would it be good for me to try to bring this awareness to each and every moment, even if it requires intense effort? If you feel this is good for me, I will try it even though I am afraid I may lose some of the fun and spontaneity and ease of just living, and even though I don't know if I can manage it.
Question 5
Beloved Osho, who is the blessed one?
