Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1 from Lalita
Beloved Osho, thirteen years ago I left the world, deadly wounded, and came to you. You healed me and gave me back even more than life.
Then one year ago I went back to that same world I had escaped from, feeling like a child just out of kindergarten, who barely knows the ABC. Naturally there were dark moments. During those moments an inner voice -- was it your voice, Osho? -- kept hammering at me, "Don't get lost in your emotions -- watch!" For months this voice became my constant companion until suddenly a realization happened to me: That the darkness and the conflict were created by my own fears, desires, judgements. This glimpse was surrounded by a calm, relaxed feeling of freedom and acceptance.
Now, experiencing again the overwhelming beauty of sitting at your feet, I can see that no matter how long I watch, this desire to be in your presence will remain with me.
Beloved Osho, is it really possible not to long for something so unique and beautiful?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, the other day you talked so beautifully about the sadness which follows the first experience of our innermost silence.
Is it necessarily so, that when I first experience this silence, I also feel with my whole being that I am absolutely alone on my journey?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, I don't really have a question to ask you -- everything is very good. Only one thing is confusing me a little. You have often spoken about the "chosen few." Please, who is doing the choosing?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, often, in the past, you have spoken on doubt and the value of doubting everything.
On the level where you are my master and I, through your grace, have become your disciple, there has never been any doubt. Forgetfulness on my part, yes; unawareness on my part, yes -- but never the torment of doubt.
Beloved Master, could you speak on doubt in the relationship of the disciple with the master?
Question 5
Edited excerpt: 3min 46sec, question 5 **
Beloved Osho, why do you always look in your hand before you start answering the first question? Do I see it wrongly, or do you find the answer there?
Question 6
Beloved Osho, it is for the first time I have been so close to you. When I am sitting here with you I feel my heart in tune with your heart, I feel a deep love for you. But I also feel my outer seriousness.
Why is laughter so difficult for me?
