Reader of the questions: Ma Anand Sheela.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, your contradictions, your lies, and your insistence that we are not to believe you, have made my mind inoperable. All it can say with certainty is, "I don't know." I used to be quite proud of my mind, but now it simply feels stupid. So far, it's not no-mind, but perhaps someday soon, its dying gasp may be, "I don't know." Meanwhile, my heart feels better and better. When you contradict yourself it simply has a good laugh and feels grateful. What's happening?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, what is it that happens when you dance with me? You say you are an ordinary man, but dancing with you is no ordinary experience. It is unlike anything I have felt before.
Question 3
Beloved Osho, isn't enlightenment another idea like heaven? Why should it be that once you are enlightened you are never born again? Life is so juicy and such a blast, it seems crazy to become enlightened and never come back again.
Question 4
Edited excerpt: 1min 25sec, a part of question 4 **
Beloved Osho, you say, "Don't ask, and it shall be given to you," and also, "Trust in Allah, but tie your camel first." When is the moment of action and when is the moment of surrender?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, when you spoke about kids, sannyasins, the commune and the world, I was overwhelmed by your love and caring for all of us. There is immense gratefulness that I am living here. And yet frequently in my most joyful moments when I allow myself to be touched by the love and our way of life with you, I cry and feel a deep sadness. Please comment.
