Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You said there are only two types of people: Those whose path is awareness and those whose path is surrender or bhakti. It seems to me that Lao Tzu has nothing to do with either of them -- is there a third type then who follow neither or both?
Question 2
I am aware of a dichotomy within me: When I am near you, I am drawn towards you and am conscious of being a thirsty seeker. When I am away from the ashram I just have a good time and feel deliciously unholy. Is something wrong?
Question 3 from Buddhaghosha
In intensive psychotherapy the patient may either be talking or listening, that is, trying to hear from within. Only the latter is of value. A good therapist, especially if love exists, will hit on many ways of heightening this process of listening for the unexpected. Is this a form of meditation? In fact, might it be said that ideally, both therapist and patient are meditating together?
Question 4
This is a Marxist, a Christian theologian's question -- so many diseases together!
In traditional China there was a saying, 'Confucian in office, Taoist out of office.' This represented a deep division and dilemma in Chinese society, perhaps all societies. Can there be an enlightened society which does not teach the way of the ego? Or is society by nature of its very ordered and patterned reality of the calculating and repressive collective mind or ego; is society, even that of enlightened individuals or would-be enlightened individuals, by its very nature, opposed to enlightenment?
Question 5
The closer I come, the thirstier I get. When is the quenching going to start?
Question 6
If I let go I fear I am gone forever.
