shorttitle ECSTAS10
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Are you the only enlightened person in this ashram? If yes, is it impossible to enlighten or to be enlightened near an enlightened person?
Question 2
When I came here I was tense. People looked unfriendly, not open. Now all that has changed; everyone is beautiful. I have had similar experiences before, but they have always faded away. I hope it is now wisdom and will not fade, but if ear it may be knowledge and I will lose it.
Question 3
Oh, the religion! The adoration of the past! The beauty and sentimentality af the past!
Since I was a little child, I have always felt like thinking about the past and getting a feeling of sweet pain, that the past is gone, and crying sweet and warm tears and really enjoying the whole thing very much -- this whole thing called nostalgia. Sometimes I really love my past. Having a past to play with, I feel blessed. Am I a fool?
So I hear you and agree with you, intellectual, that the past is nonexistential and unreal, but I seem to feel different about it. What is going on?
If nostalgia is just a trick of the ego, which it must be, then why does it comes as a good warm feeling?
How can the devil be sweet?
Or how can my feelings be unreal?
Or if my feelings are unreal, what is left?
Question 4
Once in a while, my mind looks at your close disciples, like the tall English guy with the sad face. One hears his sad voice as he reads the sutra. The guy never smiles, never lets go. Do people become very serious if they are so near you?
