shorttitle PSYCHO22
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, what does it mean when you say, "Just be yourself"? How can I be myself when I don't know who I am? I know many of my preferences, likings, dislikings and tendencies, which seem to be the outcome of a programmed biocomputer called the mind. Does just being oneself mean that one totally lives out the whole content of the mind as watchfully as possible?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, you say freedom is the greatest value for you. You also say your attitude to life is that of let-go. It seems to me that you have used your freedom to choose to give up the freedom to decide anything, in favor of letting existence take care of you. Is the ultimate in freedom actually total enslavement?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, living decisively, knowing what one wants, seems easy. However, my reality is that I can never make up my mind about anything. I can always see both sides of an argument and can never decide which is right. So I am left hanging between the two. One part of me, listening to you, feels this is okay, but it makes me feel static, as if I am only partially alive. Please comment.
Question 4
Beloved Osho, you spoke the other night about honest truth. Mystics have often spoken of the "ultimate truth." Can the truth be anything other than ultimate?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, is it not true to say that because we can even formulate a question that we have an inkling somewhere of the answer -- even though we are not aware of it?
It seems to me like a doctor looking at a patient: The fact that he asks the patient certain questions and not others indicates he has some idea of what the diagnosis -- and hence the answer -- is.
