synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Virginia
You appear to devote your life to helping other people; but people around you appear only interested in helping themselves. If their aim is to lose their egos, is not a better method to lose oneself in helping others?
Question 2
Having attained the peaceful state of mind which you call India, how can one sustain it in the pressures of the West? For me, it has been impossible.
Question 3 from Pankaja
When I am writing a book, I am full of flowing energy and delight. But, when I have finished, I am so empty and dead that I can hardly bear to live. Now I am must starting to write, but though I can get into the pleasure while I am working, during the meditations I get overwhelmed with fear of the emptiness which I expect months from now.
Question 4
I want to come close to you, Osho, but I enjoy being in open spaces and by the sea. So what to do?
Question 5 from Greg Ewart
It is from a new seeker, Greg Ewart.
Osho, I want to become a sannyasin; but surrender means love, and I have never experienced love, nor have I ever established a meaningful relationship with anyone else. If I take sannyas now, my decision to do so would be an intellectual, maybe a hypocritical one. I would feel as though I were using you. How can I become a simple, sincere sannyasin?
Question 6
I sometimes feel such a fear of missing, as if I were in a school, and if I didn't do the right thing I would flunk out.
Question 7 from Madhuri
Osho, please, what are you doing to me?
Question 8
What did Jesus mean when he said in his sermon on the mount, 'Blessed are the poor in spirit'?
Question 9 from Sw Vishnu Chaitanya
Without any reason I do some jobs in a hurry; especially eating.
Question 10
So many questions have been asked of you. Is there a limit after which no more new questions can be found?
Question 11
You seem to advocate commitment and non-attachment in love, whether with master or lover. I don't understand how one can be committed and unattached at the same time.
Question 12
You seem to emphasize different points every day: Being ordinary, being aware, being meditative, and so on. If I try to practice them all I get confused trying to reach a harmony of all. Should I just forget, and be spontaneous?
Question 13
Dear Osho, hello.
