Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, you talked the other morning of the child being forced to be obedient. That child is still sitting here: I hate being told what to do. But in a way that should be the other person's problem; however, I insist on making it my problem by reacting with anger, resentment, and the need to justify myself. It is clear that those who do the telling also hate being told what to do. It seems as if we are all caught in the same intricate web, playing different roles at different times. As an adult how can I convert reaction into response and responsibility?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, you have been called "The genius of the absurd." your way in this world seems so relentlessly wild and crazy that many people -- perhaps all people -- are filled with wonder, or confusion; and sometimes, even anger. But the European parliament, gathering votes to ban you from Europe forever seems also absurd and crazy. I wonder who is more absurd: You or them? What can we discover about truth in your absurdity?
