Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Savita.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, to fall in love is so easy. Why is it so difficult to fall out of love? So many discussions, tears, fights, fears.... I don't want to hurt the person I've been with, because it's not that there is no feeling. I'm so confused. And the love for you is a different feeling altogether. Can you say something?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, to be disobedient and to surrender seem to me polar opposites. Please explain how the two can be lived.
Question 3
Beloved Osho, you have recently said many startling and shocking things. I would like to hear more.
One question I would like to ask is: Are past lives a fiction?
Question 4
Beloved osho, I am seeing that within the experience of pleasure there arises a deep longing to know something which is more total. Pleasure-pain, happiness-sadness, seem to be one, and I feel there must be something which transcends them. Is my longing for what you call bliss?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, the other day during discourse you helped us listen to the silence. During darshan, there were many moments of exquisite silence, almost tangible. On both days I felt as though my heart was bursting and I cried. Yet I also laughed, clapped, and celebrated as never before. Beloved master, please speak about the space between the laughter and the tears, the space where the pendulum stops.
Question 6
Beloved Osho, I wonder why you are not available to people like me who come from as far as Puerto Rico and would like to meet you, even if it is only for five minutes. The main reason is to find out the kind of charisma that you have. Not even the greatest politicians have been able to accomplish what you have.
Question 7
Beloved Osho, often you say that enforced celibacy makes people's sex energy perverted and that sex is for fun. When I heard you say, "If you are homosexual, become natural," I cried for hours. I am accustomed to hearing that I am retarded, that homosexuality is a perversion, but this was too much. I cannot change from being a lesbian into a heterosexual woman just like that. Please tell me how to handle this.
